The Pubbelly Restaurant Group and Macchialina Taverna Rustica announced today that they will amicably split ways, effective immediately.

Macchialina’s  chef Michael Pirolo and General Manager Jen Chaefsky have purchased the concept, name and brand from the Pubbelly Group and will now be operating the rustic Italian concept as a separate entity. “We will miss having them as part of the team,” said Andreas Schreiner, founding partner and Managing Director for Pubbelly Restaurant Group.

Macchialina Taverna Rustica, located at 820 Alton Road on South Beach, serves dinner, Tuesday–Thursday, from 6pm-midnight; Friday and Saturday from 6pm-1am and Sunday from 6-11pm.  (305) 534-2124
