Macellaio RC on London’s Union Street is an Italian restaurant that never takes shortcuts. Here, tradition is of the utmost importance – the recipes, ingredients and techniques all harken back to years gone by. Restaurateur Roberto Costa started as a restaurant dishwasher before working his way up to become the world-renowned business owner that he is today, boasting restaurants across Italy and London. At Macellaio RC Union Street you can enjoy the fruits of his labour in a beautiful building in Southwark.
Macellaio RC boasts its very own butchery in the middle of the restaurant so that guests can sit back, relax and watch the show. As if the smells wafting from the butchery aren’t enough, the restaurant also features a Ligurian bakery that ensures guests are surrounded by the aromas of freshly baked bread while they dine. And that’s just the smell – just wait until taste comes into play! At Macellaio, the chefs age cuts of Fassona beef until the flavours are absolutely perfect. We recommend ordering rump steak – choose from a side of sweet gorgonzola and walnuts, pears and modena balsamic vinegar or rocket with shaved Parmigiano Reggiano – or the freshly made Ravioli Al Tocco served with slow-cooked Fassona shoulder ragu. Whatever you decide on, you’re in for a treat here at Macellaio RC Union Street. Reservations are essential at this Italian restaurants in London’s Southwark.
There was way too much salt on the baked potatoes and way too less salt on the meat. The waitress tried to sell too much meat for only 2 people. I asked for 800 gr of Fiorentina and he served us 900 gr. So when ordering, order alway 100/200 gr less so you have the right amount. Service was fast and kind, even though the waitress did not give us time to think and decide what to order
Great food and service. Everyone we met was so friendly, nice and professional. The place was very nice to eat and the music playing was very relaxing soft jazz
Great steaks, a must try if you’re a mest lover! Great hospitality and fantastic wine too! Try as well the pissa, bollito croquettes and tartare!
