A group descended and they were great

We were visiting Borgo a Mozzano for a destination wedding. On the last night it was decided to go out. We chose Osteria i Macelli for the group, which ended up being about 24 including two little ones. The restaurant had less than an hour to prepare and were fabulous.

Look for a yellow ochre building just above a local car park, at the foot of a wooded valley stretching into the hills. From the terrace with its sun umbrellas and geraniums you can ignore the cars and enjoy the view of the ancient town church, chiming the quarter, and the hills behind. Service is friendly and prompt and the... More

Delicious food at an amazing price given the quality. We really enjoyed both the truffle and rabbit pasta options. 3 courses including wine for under €50 for two people.

We dined at the Osteria I Macelli on 24th July for a special birthday celebration. The meal was excellent. The menu was extensive including homemade pasta dishes, local delicacies for starters and great meat and fish for mains. 3 people had the T Bone steak which were huge and definitely not for the faint hearted! One person had pork which... More

I have not reviewed Osteria I Macelli before, but I found this receipt dated 05/06/2012, (so can not truthfully select a date from your list) but I think this story tells a lot about this Osteria... Looking on Google Map realized it was the place we turned to in desperation at 9pm at night, because we had been turned away... More

The restaurant is hidden away at an exit (or entrance) of Borgo a Mozzano. However it would be an error to miss it. The food is very good and original. It is made of fresh products. The service is very quick and very friendly. The prices are affordable. It is a very good address.

Just had the pleasure of a 2nd excellent dinner at Macelli. As we were lucky enough to be there during the truffle season we had excellent pasta with truffles followed by an excellent boar stew along with a bottle of local red. It's a very local restaurant (at least in the winter) and all the nicer for that. Altogether a... More

I have been living up the road from I Macelli for summers, for the past five years and this year is the first time we have appreciated the range of fabulous dishes and the service, as well as more than decent prices. The mussels with garlic, oil and pepper are nothing less than fabulous. A dish of tagliatelle with a... More

3rd time here and still consistently good. Yes, relaxed service but just what we needed to cool down after a hot walk around beautiful Borgo. Great generous starter of prosciutto and melon; gorgeous truffle pasta; slightly small tiramisu (but tasty) and very good value house prosecco. Yummy! Well worth it - thoroughly recommended.
