Macellaio RC’s at London’s Exmouth Market offers guests a glimpse into the rich and varied Italian kitchen. Founded by world-renowned restaurateur Roberto Costa, this family of restaurants has spread across Italy and London, where you’ll find three more locations in addition to this one in Clerkenwell. Famous for serving aged beef steaks from Fassona cattle – a special breed raised in a mountainous region close to Genoa – Macellaio prides itself on serving food that’s unbelievably fresh and flavourful. Be sure to try the pissa (the Ligurian precursor to the pizza) while you’re there. It’s an absolute must when dining at Macellaio RC at Exmouth Market.
After years of working his way up from a dishwasher to becoming the multi-restaurant owner of Macellaio RC, you could say that Roberto Costa’s hard work has certainly paid off. His commitment to sourcing the best ingredients and his love for fresh, home-made food is apparent through the restaurant’s menu selection. At Macellaio RC at London’s Exmouth Market, you’ll be met with a menu of insanely fresh food. There’s even an in-house Ligurian bakery and a butchery that you can observe in action from the comfort of your table – needless to say, the aromas wafting around the restaurant are a treat on their own.
Whether you opt for a few small plates, go for a main course or decide on a set menu, the food offering at Macellaio RC’s Exmouth Market location in London’s Clerkenwell will not let you down. We like the rump steak with pears and Modena balsamic vinegar, the pasta trenette with homemade Ligurian pesto and the Sicilian tuna steak served crusted with breadcrumbs, garlic and parsley. There’s a lot more where that came from, but you’ll have to stop in for yourself to see. Do the smart thing and book your table in advance.
Really nice atmosphere and great service. The rib eye steak was amazing and definitely left feeling satisfied. The steak tartare is also great as a starter. Would definitely recommend this place!
Amazing Steak Tartare! Wonderful other dishes including a wonderful apple cake with salted caramel sauce for pudding. Great range of quality steaks available and cooked to perfection. Friendly helpful staff.
IMHO... The best steaks in London, Great wine list too. I've been eating at the Exmouth Market restaurant for the last 3 years and never been less tham 100% impressed.
