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.
