only sampled it - will be back

Stopped in as a group at the end of our Foods of New York Tour of Chelsea Market / Meatpacking district. Restaurant was very nice. We all sampled pasta a la Bolognese. Very tasty. Liked the area, so will go back.

I took a rib eye and I must say that the meat was tasty and well cooked. As for the service, you feel like waiters are putting pressure on you in order to make more money : they fill your glass (of water or wine) again and again so that you need to order additional bottles, they put pressure on...

This place had intrigued me for some time now being it's prime location in the Meat Packing District. I had decided on this place to celebrate a friend's 40th birthday. The staff was very accommodating in setting up our reservation and we were seated promptly upon arrival on the main floor (if interested in a more rustic European feel, then... More

We felt like steak and did some Googling, glad we found this spot. Was nice and quiet for a Sunday evening dinner. Enjoyed the atmosphere and good service. Filet mignon, creamed spinach and fries were delicious. Forget which steak my husband had that evening, but he enjoyed it all. We would happily return if we stay in the area on... More

We celebrated a birthday at Macelleria and had the chance to eat at the long tables located in the back of the restaurant with view of the kitchen. The food was delicious. I had the Spaghetti with white truffle and they were very good!

Stumbled on this great restaurant after visiting Chelsea Market and walking back throught Meatpacking district and wondering where to get a good espresso (very hard to find in US!). So we see Macelleria and think why not try as it looked interesting as Macelleria means butcher in Italian. I must say not disappointed as staff were accommodating as we explained... More

thought I'd post a quick review of Macelleria as I would highly recommend it. Being in the meatpacking district is a totally different vibe and it made us feel like we were in a place where the happening locals went which we absolutely are not but still very cool to see. Our dinner was amazing, we got there at 7... More

We had an 8:00 reservation and were sat 15 minutes late at a table right near the door and it was cold. It took a long time to get a server and the time between our aps and entrees was way too long. The food, however, was very good. One of the dishes tasted exactly like one of my grandmother's... More

Owned and operated by Violetta and Sergio Bitici, Macelleria's rustic, Northern Italian cuisine never disappoints. Using only the finest meats and home-made pastas, each visit to Macelleria is like sitting in on a Tuscan grandmother's Sunday dinner. Drop by and you're likely to see Robert DeNiro or Jay-Z dining in the restaurant's wine cellar, constructed in-part using a 16th-century fortress.

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
