Headed to a show at City Winery and decided on dinner before - Macello's has been a go-to for us for a few years - great spot prior to Bulls/Hawks game at United Center. Cool ambience, delicious cocktails , and good wine! Our server recommended the special appetizer which was a neopolitan pizza with olive oil, arugula and burrata cheese and cherry tomatoes - it was a great way to start the meal - the Chilean Sea bass was a hit - I went with the lamb chop casserole and it was absolutely marvelous!!
The Chilean Sea Bass from the wood oven is some of the best I have ever had!
Food and service are always outstanding. Great place before an event at the United Center.
Always happy with the food and service at this comfortable, authentic Italian restaurant. Very broad menu, great homemade pastas, very large portions, and fun lively atmosphere.
Wonderful, didn't expect it to be so wonderful. Food was AMAZING. Cocktails and server were lovely, too. Didn't break the bank.
Great place to eat. We use it for Hawks pregame for clients and it works well. Always great food, good service, and valet parking if needed. Very cool interior.
As always we all had a grand time, it’s the best Italian restaurant in chicago!
Good food, warm atmosphere, nice menu. We go to Macello’s often before theater and are never disappointed.
Friendly and welcoming as always! One of our regular spots downtown.
I love this place. The cozy atmosphere. Delicious food with amazing gluten free options. The service is always great.
Waiter was great. Food hot and good. Very good appetizers too.
Another couple and myself were here on an early Sunday evening. It was relatively quiet probably because there wasn't a hockey game. One person had the Italian wedding soup, the
other two of us had the spinach salad and we all shared a pizza. We all shared the Tiramisu to finish. The others had beer and I had a glass of wine. They have a good list for wines by the glass and the waiter offered me tastes of the two wines I was interested in and wasn't familiar with. That always gets a lot of points with me. We all enjoyed the food, the service and the ambience and this is a go-to place for us to get together and catch up. We can be equally casual as we were on this occasion or have a party as we did for two of our birthdays.
Great place to go before a hawks game, if your in a rush they get you in and out without affecting the quality of food.
Terrific authenic italian food. Pizza is awesome and cannoli's the best in the city!
I went on Valentine's Day with this girl I've been seeing and we had a wonderful time. The ambiance, service, and especially the food were spectacular. Absolutely will be coming back.
Had a very disappointing Valentine's Day dinner there. Boyfriend got there early and sat for about 15 minutes before he waved over the server to take a drink order. The stuffed artichokes were...I don't know what they were. They were artichoke bottoms stuffed with cheese and served in hot water. Very unappetizing and they didn't taste very good at all. The braciole with pasta was very under seasoned. Pizza was okay, however in my opinion the crust was way too thin. Weird italian radio on the speakers, including jarring advertisements. Won't be returning.
Great service! Wonderful waiter! I would like to say, thank you!
Went for a Valentines’s dinner. Service was excellent.
Delicious food, great wine, excellent service, just the right size.
Excellent food; loved the ambiance.
Octopus was like rubber rest of the food was good but nothing special
Very authentic food and wines outside Puglia (Italy). Great lamb, pastas, salad and wines. Always a fantastic experience with friendly, professional staff. A must for true Italian food.
Excellent meal tonight. Restaurant week offerings were delicious and quite a good bargain. Everything was good, the salad, the risotto, the lamb chops and dessert. Excellent value tonight. Pizza and the griglia mista were excellent too.
We chose Macello because of its proximity to Revel Fulton Market, where we were headed for a charity event. Macello is a great place to go for really delicious Italian food, especially the pizza. We went with my parents who have visited Italy many times, and they said it was the best pizza they had eaten in a long time.
Atmosphere, service, & food is exceptional. The food cooked in the wood oven is just so good. The pizza is off the chart.
Delicious food and nice Ambience. All of our meals were outstanding! Friendly staff and great location.
If it’s not on the menu, ask the waiter to zuppa di pesce. The chef always complies and it is a phenomenal dish. I’ve been there on multiple occasions and never been disappointed.
I keep going back for the wood oven grilled sea bass. I have travelled extensively and have never found a sea bass prepared so well. It is a generous piece of well-seasoned fish that from the moment your fork touches it you know it is going to be tender and juicy. I am also very choosy about marinara sauces and recently tried a pasta that I am still raving about. Add to that, the warmth and convivial feel that the wood oven provides for the room and you have a great winter dining spot.
We went for restaurant week and had a reservation, took over 30 minutes to get a table.
The Hostess said that they were overbooked. Others waiting seemed to have to go back up to her to check in on their tables as she would forget about them (her words).
Food was good, service was great.
Good food. Very loud
Had a reservation for four and we were seated without any delay. Service, food and atmosphere were great. Have never been disappointed.
Perfectly portioned entrees and ample appetizers. Perfect place for a friends' get together. Interesting decor.
My favorite Italian restaurant in Chicago!!!!! The pastas and pizza are amazing. Can’t go wrong with any of the menu items. Highly highly recommend
It was my second time there and I love it. Great place to eat before a game or concert at the United Center. I love the patio in the summer time!
The food was amazing. Bar tender was great. Overall a great place especially before a Blackhawks game
Macello's food is outstanding and the prices are very value oriented.
Fantastic Service, food and environment! Everyone loved their food!
Outstanding ambiance. Impressive wine selection. Easy parking. Food overall is on par with most other Italian restaurants in the city. With the exception of their wood fire pizza/calzone/panzarotti, which are outstanding, nothing too special. Seafood was good, but slightly over done. Lacked depth of flavor.
Food was fabulous! Was easy to catch up with old friends noise level just right.
