The moment you walk through our door you know you are in for something special. The restaurant is filled with lively chatter and the delicious smell of pizza, freshly made for you in our wood-burning ovens. Colorful fiberglass orbs provide gentle light to dine by and our wine selection stretches from floor to ceiling against our longest wall, providing you with myriad options from which to choose. Macello is a place where you will feel like a regular from your very first visit. A family-friendly fine dining restaurant, coming here you will find all of the comforts of a home-cooked meal without any of the mess. Since October of 2007, Macello has transported diners to another place and time. We specialize in Pugliese cuisine, inspired by the nostalgic reflections of our two owners, both with strong ties to this southern Italian region. Our menu takes advantage of many of the coastal region's unique seafood and pasta dishes. Always traditionally-inspired and fresh, we strive to capture the Old World charm and authenticity in our West Loop restaurant. From the two wood-burning ovens kept fired to the finest ingredients, at Macello you will find a taste of the Adriatic like no other. Customers have come to expect the highest quality of ingredients, the simplicity of a perfect meal, the cozy unhurried professional service and the feeling of being surrounded by family and friends and we are happy to welcome them time and again. Come and join us and see if you don't become a regular, too.

    Advertised as quiet, the noise level was high. Concrete floor and no shades over skylights made the otherwise cool ambiance, very cold and loud. $28 for lousy unripe tomato salad was unacceptable. Mussels tasted nasty …couldn’t finish our dinner. Disappointed at a restaurant we had high expectations. Our server was delightful.

    Everyone in our group of five loved everything about Macello, which specializes in Southern Italian (Puglia region) food; the ambience, service, food, and drinks. Bartender made terrific cocktails for all, even my wife's margarita was spot-on. Our waitress, Sarah, was knowledgeable and personable and the rest of staff who brought food and drinks were pleasant and efficient. Sarah recommended a Puglia red that was excellent. We started with a brick-oven pizza as our appetizer, which we all thought among the best we've ever eaten. I had the zuppa di pesce, which had fresh and delicious baby clams, muscles, octopus, squid, and a very large prawn. My wife loved her roast chicken and potato. The others in our party were very happy with their orecchiette barciole and linguini scoglio. We will definitely be back again.

    Macello has been a favorite for years. During the pandemic, we took advantage of meals on the patio to get out. Their food is terrific, many servers are fixtures. They know their business and the food is great.
