I have recently visited this place. It was not my choice of the restaurant and would not be. As a non meat eater I found this place is very limited on vegeterian options. Service was ok. Pizza actually tasted good.

What a brilliant find. Went for a pre-theatre meal. The staff were really attentive and friendly and the service was good. The food was just delicious and good size portions. Two courses and wine came to £35 each including Service. Great place.

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
