The food was very good. The server failed to give the prices of the specials and the wine that he recommended. The special that my husband got with the mussels was great. A plate or bowl should have been served underneath.
My portion size was great! It was just enough, I did leave one bite. I do love to go to restaurants where the portion is not a mountain of food.

I was accommodated with a more private area as I had requested for business meeting/lunch. Food and service were superb. Thanks

They were very relaxed about us having to wait for our friends, who were running late. Dinner was not hurried, very well paced. The waitress was professional and friendly without being too talkative. She was very familiar with the menu items and made excellent suggestions.
The dinner special was pricey but worth it. Large portions, took half of it home. This restaurant has never disappointed us. Great food and atmosphere.

Marcello's is one of my favorite locations for a date night dinner with my wife. The food is outstanding as is their service and attention to detail. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxed making for an excellent location for special events like an anniversary dinner. Good selection of both food and drinks and the specials are particularly great.

The food and service were excellent. My wife and I love Marcelo’s. Spaghetti with bolognese sauce and meatball is the best ever. Tried the stuffed flounder it was phenomenal.

Our waitress may have had too many tables. We had to wait on her several times during the meal. One guest didn't want to drink red wine and asked our waitress to bring her a glass of white. The waitress poured us our bottle of selected red wine and took too long to bring the other glass. We sat for about 10 minutes waiting to have the first toast and drink until the glass of white wine showed up. We finished the first bottle and selected another. Our waitress seemed to be lost so we asked another waitress to please chill and open the bottle. Disappointing service.

The food, the atmosphere and the dining experience is really great. We are regulars and will have to request specific waitress in the future.

As always the food and service was tremendous and enjoyed by us all. We had gone to Marcello’s to spend time with our friends in a relaxed setting and the restaurant did not disappoint. Our waitress Red was absolutely on point, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. She allowed us to settle in with drinks and to socialize with our friends before going over the specials on the night.
Thoroughly recommended,
Richard

This was our first time. Marcello’s has that true Italian feel. Menu is great. House Italian salad was exactly what you’d expect. We had veal and seafood. Excellent.

Been a fan since it started. They had a bad night. Been there over 100 times. I might go back once more. I hate to be honest when the truth is evident. Service great! Kitchen and manager very lacking.

Met up with some clients for dinner and, as usual, Marcello's was on point. The food, service, and atmosphere was great. The wine selection was great and price point was better than expected. If you want a quiet dinner with friends, family, business or special occasions, Marcello's is always an excellent choice.

The alfredo is EXCELLENT. Their balsamic vinegar served with the bread is addictive. Our food took pretty long, but it was well worth the wait. I highly recommend the lemon cake for dessert - so moist and flavorful. The mascarpone icing was heavenly. Great spot for a romantic date night! So sad the Baton Rouge location closed, but we made the trip out to Lafayette!

While I would dine there again, it could have been better. The tomatoes were tasteless in the caprese salad; the pork meatball appetizer were not as light or tender as I would have liked; and the veal scalloping was a little heavy on the olive oil; the lemon cake was moist, light, and delicious. The service and ambience were very nice. So, I think there is room for improvement but overall the experience was very good.
