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.

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.
