Been here on Friday. The location is cool but a bit hidden, therefore difficult to find. This Italian steak house has normo prices, but the portions are soo tiny that you have to order more, therefore you end up spending lots of money. My steak...More

Description
Macellaio RC in Union Street is inspired by the numerous theatres in the local area, the beef will be dry-aged on site, dramatically hung behind glass, and a stage will extend into the restaurant between two large banquet tables. The restaurant will introduce two exciting unique new concepts - a theatrical in-house butchery and a Ligurian baker
