Re: “Macello

I spent my junior year abroad in Florence, Italy, so I am pretty picky when it comes to good Italian food. My hairdresser is from Rome and urged me to try out Macello, and thank goodness I did! I sampled the calamari appetizer, the Macello pizza (buffalo mozzarella, sausage and olives), and a delicious pasta with tomato, burrata, and arugala. Everything exceeded my expectations. None of the dishes were ovely complicated, but they were all cooked impeccably. The pizza in particular blew me away, and I credit the wood burning oven (a la Naples) for that.

My only complaint was the parking situation - it took me forever to find a spot! Any tips? That being said, even terrible parking won't dissuade me from returning for delicious food.
