Location and contact

Rustic Italian Cuisine from James Beard Semifinalist Chef Michael Pirolo. Macchialina is an energetic, casual Italian taverna featuring the bold, seasonally inspired cooking. The recipe is simple, clean flavors, fresh ingredients & rustic accents. The 70-seat establishment emits a warm, inviting and hip ambiance that feels as if it has been plucked from the streets of New York City. The dining room is adorned with antique brick walls, cozy, tufted leather banquettes and handcrafted wood tables. Macchialina's lively bar is the perfect spot to enjoy a Negroni and snacks or a full meal.

As half-Italians, we expected more. We heard about this restaurant from Eater, but we just appreciated just one of the dishes: Cavatelli. The service was below the average: they did not accepted to order the antipasti and wine first. The rule was to order all...More

The waiter messed up the order and on top of that it took more than 1h and 15 minutes to be served. The restaurant is overpriced and they charged us 18% upfront. The service is really bad.
