Macello Ristorante Pizzeria

About Us

Italian cuisine from the Puglia region of Italy, Steaks & Chops. Macello, a rustic Italian restaurant and market/deli located in the Warehouse District (West Loop), offers an airy dining room with woo...d beams, exposed brick, and two wood-burning ovens. The menu features plenty of thin crust pizza; linguine with mixed seafood in a spicy cherry tomato sauce. The butcher shop inspired market located in the front of Macello stocks cured meats, cheese and food from the Puglia region- the "boot heel" of Italy. Macello appropriately translates to "slaughterhouse"-- the building housed a slaughterhouse in the 1920s. Macello was recently rated as the "BEST PIZZA" in Chicago by Chicago Magazine (July 2010)

The pizza was very good but the calzone was absolutely outstanding. The do indeed seem to know that pizza is about the crust (bread) and not all the glop that might end up on or in it. They advise that these items might not deliver well but ask that they not cut the pizza and when it arrives throw it (and/or the calzone) in a hot oven for a few minutes and you will not be disappointed. The stuffed eggplant and the stuffed squid was also very good. The prices aren't as ridiculous as other places (e.g., Rosebud) and the delivery was fast to our place. We look forward to trying other items from this welcome eatery.
