At the very heart of Macellaio RC Northcote Road in London is infectious, unbridled passion. Passion for the meat they serve, where they source it, the dishes served and, well, just about everything. This cosy and traditional butchery and restaurant on Northcote Road in Battersea is reminiscent of the humble, family-run places found throughout Italy so, as you can imagine, authenticity is of utmost importance. The focus here is on quality so expect to find options like Fassona beef paired alongside some of the best handpicked Italian wines in town. If all this sounds like your idea of a mighty fine time, book a table, head to Macellaio RC Northcote Road and prepare yourself for a meal to remember.
So, let’s take a look at what you can expect to find on the menu at this Battersea Italian restaurant. Broken down into three sections, let’s begin with the Fassona beef. The premium cuts are sourced from artisanal farms between Monforte d'Alba, Serralunga, Roddi and Alba, where the standard is high and the methods ethical. The team at Macellaio RC Northcote Road draw on traditional slow-cooking techniques to maximise the flavour. Oh, and did we mention they butcher and dry-age each cut in-house? Once again, the passion is rife here. Then, when it comes to seafood, Macellaio RC Northcote Road is all about tuna. They butcher and age high-quality breeds in the cellars and the results are delicious.
In terms of dishes, Macellaio RC Northcote Road showcases charcuterie boards, Italian cheeses and a truly extensive wine list. We love tucking into a charcuterie board with creamy burrata to begin, before a Fiorentina steak, grilled rabbit cooked in plenty of garlic and white wine or ravioli al tocco stuffed with beef and spinach served with slow-cooked Fassona ragu. If all this takes your fancy, book a table and head to Macellaio RC Northcote Road in Battersea for one of the best Italian experiences in London. Buon appetito!
Great food and service from Valeria and Jacobo was excellent.we recommend the steak tartare.If booking and not available online you should ring the restaurant direct as we did.
Fantastic Menu, venue, and service. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, especially those who want to try different cuts or offal. I ordered testicles and rabbit.
As always great service, superb food and absolutely amazing experience altogether. Valeria made sure that our night was perfect and assisted us with full attention and knowing, professional approach
As always excellent for lunch. Good atmosphere and wonderful service. The meat is incredible, as are the selection of wines. Highly recommended and well worth a visit.
I had changed the booking from 2 to 4 (no problem) I was caught in traffic so my husband and his friend had retired to the pub ( still no problem) then we were 3 (again no problem) the food, as usual was great, the service friendly and the trio of desserts sublime. I am very happy to have introduced another of our friends to the friendly and delicious eatery in Battersea.
It's really expensive, for what you get. We were charged £58 for a carafe of wine for example. We shared a t-bone steak for 4, and it was undercooked, they dry age the beef which is great but it means that they should trim the edges where it's been exposed to the air for 10 weeks or whatever - but they didn't. The quality of their meat is fab but the quality of their butchery doesn't match. I didn't have a bad time there but for the money I think there are way better places to eat steak.
The hard sell on the rib of beef got annoying - a cut that only seems to exist in 800gram portions - especially after we had chosen our main. The waitress should have alerted us to the rib when we sat down. Equally the apple cake pudding took so long to arrive that we cancelled it...again if the waitress had told us of the length of time it took for that dessert ...on the whole the food was good but not sure if we will go back.
Great restaurant and a lovely place to celebrate mother’s dad. Superb beef. We shared a rib of beef and the kids had fillet steak and the baby chicken. Will definitely be back.
Fine quality ingredients, an excellent choice of wines and friendly, attentive service all made for a very good night out. A great addition to my local area - I’ll definitely be back.
Another great meal High quality steak, beautifully cooked, gorgeous beans cooked with sage, and a superb wine list. I can see this place becoming a regular haunt.
