Italian dining in London doesn’t get much better than Macellaio RC South Kensington. This wonderful restaurant on Old Brompton Road is one of four restaurants in the Macellaio RC family across London and the passion of the folk who run it is clear to see in every detail. Everything from the olives to the steaks is sourced with respect, prepared with love and expertly cooked – outstanding Italian cooking by all accounts. Macellaio RC South Kensington is a contemporary space and one that’s suitable for all sorts of occasions. If you want to be reminded what eating out is all about, a reservation and a meal here is essential.
Macellaio RC South Kensington paints quite the picture. A picture of harmony between farmers, growers, butchers and restaurants. Every steak served at Macellaio RC South Kensington – and indeed the other three Macellaio RC Italian restaurants across London – comes from the Fassona cattle breed in mountain valleys north of Genoa; every cut of meat is hung for the right amount of time and even the pissa (not pizza) dough is allowed to rise for 90 hours. All of this combines with fantastic service and a gorgeous setting to provide one of the truest Italian trattoria experiences within miles of Old Brompton Road. Macellaio RC South Kensington is just divine.
The menu at this South Kensington Italian restaurant is all about quality over quantity, which we just love. Begin, perhaps, with a starter of bone marrow or the carpaccio served simply with extra virgin oil, sea salt and black pepper. Consider a cheese or charcuterie board after that, followed by a main from the grill – maybe rabbit with white wine and garlic or rump steak with gorgonzola and walnuts? – or an indulgent pasta dish. You’ll find Macellaio RC South Kensington between South Kensington and Gloucester Road Underground stations, not far from all sorts of attractions that make this part of London so famous.
