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.

We had the BEST experience here! We will definitely be back many times! When I booked the table on Open Table I told them that it was my daughter's birthday. They actually remembered and brought out a piece of tiramisu with a candle and everything. I've made reservations before where we have had a birthday to celebrate at other places and nine times out of ten they don't even remember or do anything about it! I was so pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious, the ambience is wonderful and our waiter was EXCELLENT! Loved everything about it!

Very cool setting. Waiter might’ve been overworked so that side was a bit slow but understandable at this time. Food was good but didn’t pop with flavor as other Italian places do. Went with pastas, want to try the pizza next time. Will go again definitely

Everything about Macello is excellent. The ambiance, the service and the food.
The menu has a variety of selections. Prices were reasonable.
I started with a salad and my husband had the special appetizer. For our main dishes ( it was so difficult to decide) my husband has lamb casserole and I chose the roasted chicken. Everything was delicious. We shared Spumoni for dessert.
I would definitely return and recommend.

We dine at Macello every year before the Chicago Marathon. It has Gluten Free options and the vibe is perfect pre-race! Love the servers, all so authentic and accomodating. I wish I lived closer, I'd eat at Macello more often!

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.
