The menu features plenty of thin crust pizza; linguine with mixed seafood in a spicy cherry tomato sauce. The butcher shop inspired market located in the front of Macello stocks cured meats, cheese and food from the Puglia region- the boot, heel; of Italy.

Always great. Baked Cavatelli to die for and pizzas are fantastic. They also make a pretty good Manhattan. What else could you want.

This is what we would refer to as a neighborhood gem. One of our absolute favorite Italian spots. Never had a bad meal. Recommend to all my friends. Can be a business meet up, a great date night or ideal for groups to celebrate. Authentic, flavorful and priced very well! Truly delicious. Staff friendly and accommodating beyond average.

Food was overall good, aesthetic of the location is beautiful. Service was good until it came time for paying the bill. Server took 25 minutes to get us the bill and didn’t listen when we told him how to split the bill. 2 out of 3 of us dining were overcharged. Our bill was $96 and we were charged $110. When we complained and were told this is incorrect and money needs to be returned, one of us were left being overcharged $5. Would not recommend. Disappointing.

Macello has a cozy, old world Italian feel. It was a little hard to read the menus, it was so dark, ha! Food was awesome, and other than our friend’s soup getting forgotten, service was great too. We’ll definitely be back!

Went for a Christmas celebration dinner with my mother and her husband. We had good conversation as the music was not too loud. The wait staff was on top of everything. The food was phenomenal. I had the lamb chops special, the pizza bread app, and tiramisu for dessert

The wine and food were outstanding. The servers were really attentive and things came out quickly! (Which was perfect because we made a 5pm rezi to attend a show downtown at 7. It also seemed like a popular spot for people to dine before attending a game at the United Center too because it was mostly Blackhawks fans!)

A very clean and lovely room. We were happy to have found it- menu was very nice—then things started to go downhill. We ordered the zuppe de pesce special- they also had something similar on the regular menu. Also a nice app with bread and buratta.
Dinner was so so rushed our entrees were brought while we still eating appetizer. For sure it went under heat lamp and then still rushed down but was not too hot. Waiter was doing his best so no foul there.
Check came and the special was 55 bucks but the menu zuppe de pesce was about 30. App was also overpriced.

Waiter didn’t bring bread after asking 3 times. And he took forever to give us the bill and once he just left it at the table and we politically asked to split the bill. He laughed. Rude

Food was good- great pork chop! Our waiter was forgettable from time to time when we asked for a side dish and dessert. They do not write down your order- which is fine but to ask twice for the things your ordered, maybe they should?

But overall, will definitely go again!

Good seating arrangements, but would have liked more space between tables...interesting atmosphere, delicious entrees and fairly priced. Service good, not great. Brought in small home made birthday cake and were surprised to be charged $4/slice. Would come back again in a few months.
