Wonderful evening! Will definitely go back soon.
This is one of our go to restaurants. Excellent food, wine and mixed drinks. Wood burning oven in middle of room. Welcoming decor.
I read the reviews online and thought this would be a great place to try pre-United Center. Hi he inside was super quaint. The menu looked nice. However, the food was “meh.” Didn’t have a lot of flavor. We had a salad, some pizzas, and two different pastas. I would say the salad had the most flavor. The pizza crust was very nice, just wish the sauce was more balanced and flavorful. The pasta didn’t have any flavor. It looked pretty, but didn’t satisfy the palette like the eye.
The service was FABULOUS! The hostess, waiters, and bus staff were incredibly attentive. They made the experience so lovely.
Like eating Sunday dinner with your family. Gustavo our server made us feel welcome from his first hello. A great server indeed!!! The pasta with the shrimp was very good. Large shrimp with a wonder sauce. My husband had the baked pasta dish which he enjoyed. Both dishes were piping hot and tasty for sure. Would love to return to try the wood fired pizzas which looked great. A bit off the beaten path but worth looking for.
Everything was great from start to finish!!
Love this place! Has the best gluten free options, so much fresh deli and seafood appetizers, will definitely be back. Took a little long getting to our table, but we were hangry, and after that the service was amazing! Even got a free limoncello dessert shot!
First visit. Rating of 4.8 is accurate. Delicious food. Artichoke appetizer, arugula salad and grilled calamari were great. Pizzas were amazing. Will return. Service was fantastic. Above and beyond.
Good food. Slow service when not a busy time. A little expensive. Pleasant atmosphere.
Excellent service, fine food, and a vibrant atmosphere.
Food and service were outstanding ...great Italian food. Highly recommend. Cool setting and fun vibe!
Was awesome - great food, good value, fantastic waiter (Gustavo)
Lovely dinner last night. Husband was delightedly surprised at how big the shrimp were in the appetizer. He had the pizza, and I had a the tartufata and loved it. We both enjoyed our meals and the ambience of the place. Service was top notch.
Our experience at Macello was amazing! The filet was oustanding and the Chilean Sea Bass was delicious. We will be back!
Everything is perfect except AC is quiet strong to blow on my shoulder ..
Birthday. Server brought a dessert with candle. Nice touch. Server very attentive.
More vegetarian options would be lovely
Awesome service & awesome food! Will definitely be going back!
Excellent food and drink with attentive service. It was quite noisy at this visit
This restaurant is one of my new faves. This is a great place to catch up with friends or to go on a nice intimate date. All the wait staff are friendly all the staff are friendly. The food is delicious I recommend the calamari as a starter. They even have a cute outdoor area very nice for pics. Cocktails are tasty and the wait staff are very knowledgeable about the menu to be helpful.
Gustavo was excellent 🙏🏻. 100% recommended
The restaurant give mom and pop shop kind of vibes but everyone there was extremely friendly. The waiter was well educated on the menu and had excellent recommendations. The food did not disappoint and neither did the wine.
This place is amazing, food TOP QUALITY and the staff are the best. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Great place great service
I love everything about Macello! Ambiance, service and cuisine make this a perfect spot for special occasion or everyday dining.
Always a great dining experience!
Excellent service and even better food! The drinks were also great. Will definitely be making a trip back to visit. Loved the outdoor dining too.
We live in the neighborhood and have not dined at Macello for over a year, since COVID shut everything down. We had an outstanding meal last night and are so happy to have returned! Our entire experience was outstanding from start to finish — great atmosphere, terrific service, and wonderful food.
Pizza was great
Laganelle pasta was great.
Cavatelli wasn’t that good.
Calamari and eggplant were good.
Renee was great. Wish he came a little sooner with the check, but I found him and took care of it.
Fabulous food!! Authentic and fresh. Waitress was a little sassy and I did not appreciate that. I have a garlic and onion allergy and she made it like I couldn’t get anything without it. Otherwise food was 10/10!
Love this restaurant! Food is amazing and staff is very friendly!
Had a wonderful time at Marcello! Sat outside on patio, was lovely. I had Adriatic (seafood risotto) which was delicious. My wife has pasta San Giuseppe which was also very good. We had mixed grilled seafood (shrimp, octopus and calamari) served over rapini, for an app which is more than enough to share, which was fantastic! Our server, Martha was super friendly and knowledge.
Excellent!!! Gustavo is AMAZING!!!
It was great.
Marcello is Chicago’s hidden secret. It is an incredible restaurant for authentic Italian delights in a gorgeous setting. I highly recommend our server Rene. He took great care of us. The atmosphere, service and cuisine make this a definite yes!!
Excellent service. Delicious food
Great food, nice ambiance. We enjoyed our dinner.
This was our first time to this gem of an Italian restaurant. The service and food was wonderful. I highly recommend the pasta and the lambchop casserole. Great wine list and don't without the tiramusu.
Sadly, despite Macello's great reputation, this time we ran into a hurricane supplied from the rear door overhang that when bustled by the wind dropped hundreds of gallons of water on patrons across the patio and on my date. Sadly NO ONE told us they "were sorry" or "can we help you dry off?" or "here's a glass of wine for your trouble". Sorry, as there are many choices in Chicago we'll have to think carefully about coming back until the management figures out how to not have movie set rainfall during meals.
