An authentic Italian restaurant on Old Brompton Road, Macellaio Roberto Costa aims to showcase the best possible produce from Italy. There's an emphasis on beef, with a range of cuts from Fassona cattle - a breed native to Piemonte, in north-west Italy. 

Dishes range from beef carpaccio, battuta all'Albese (Italian-style beef tartare) and charcuterie platters to connoisseur's cuts of steak, tagliate dishes and offal options such as fegato - a dish of skewered fassona liver served with butter, sage and roasted onion purée. Pork also plays a part, with dishes made from free-range black pigs from Siena. 

The all-Italian wine list is focused on reds, with each categorised by how your steak has been cooked - from blue to burnt.

meat and steaks mecca in the heart of south kensington. the proper italian cuts are found here .

I have eaten at Macellaio twice in the last year and this is because the food is incredible and the service is outstanding. On my first trip accompanied by my boyfriend, we were seated next the the butcher come chef, who shared the background of the meat and other produce that we had the pleasure of eating. Everything comes from a farm in Italy and is incredribly fresh (and in turn delicious!) Slightly blown away by the variety of of cuts and selection of starters on the menu, we asked the chef to suggest what we ate from starters through to pudding and my goodness did we love it. To start we tried carpaccio, heart, bresaola, lardo (we really went all out), and then shared a huge rib eye - and I can honestly say that it was the best steak I have had in London (or indeed, ever!) The chef matched the wine to the meat (of which we consumed two bottles) and suggested we tried the cheesecake for desert and again, I have never tasted anything like it. The food was amazing but the personal service and the experience we had there will take as back time and time again. I have told everyone I know to go to to Macellaio - just make sure you book a table in advance as it is becoming increasingly popular (and for good reason!)
