The classic Italian dishes are excellent. The service is fantastic and the wine list is awesome. We love this restaurant and recommend it for any occasion.
I live 75 miles away; worth the drive and have done it three or four times a year.
It's a toss up as to the wine, service and the food; all are 5 STAR. I am a second
generation Sicilian and so is Gene; the proprietor. He too is 5 STAR.
Food was delicious as well as the wine. Overall good time.
I've been to Marcello's many times. Always consistent, lots of variety, good quality for the price. I would highly recommend Marcello's. I'll be back.
Our server wasn't great but it was our very first experience of a mediocre waitstaff. Normally our experience is delightful, but our server was not with it.
Very good Italian cuisine, great wine selection, nice atmosphere, good service.
Consistently delicious with an upscale, yet relaxed atmosphere. Great for business meetings, special occasions, and everything in between. Best wine list (and prices) in town, food and service are always excellent. Highly recommended!
Never a disappointment, regardless of the day of the week or time. Always consistent and reliable and a very inviting atmosphere with prompt and polite service and a menu that has items that will appeal to all. The wine selection cannot be challenged. It's unbelievable and priced right. There is no price gouging at this fine restaurant. It's very popular locally so make your reservations early and if you are there when Gene is on site, you'll even have more fun. While I'm at it, if you happen to be in New Orleans, you absolutely will not be disappointed with Marcello's downtown location on St. Charles Avenue, where advanced reservations are even more important.
Need more meat/shrimp/etc in the entree
Fantastic! Great food and great atmosphere!wonderful veal dishes and great wine selection.
My wife and l came on a Thursday night for an evening together before a business meeting, it was our second visit, and we had a great dinner!
Lovely, fairly quiet restaurant. Appetizers, entrees were exceptionally good - I'm pickier than usual since am a James Beard Foundation member. All desserts were heavy, rich, sweet. Greater variety of types, textures, sweetness would have been helpful, but more tempting.
outstanding dishes n recipes. wine selection is the best ever. you can pick you wine by browsing the wine racks that are in the dining area. this is the real Sicilian thing.
Food and service outstanding, as usual. Marcello’s never ever disappoints.
We were given an excellent table in the dining area. You walk to the wine area to choose your wine, much like shopping in a wine store. The selection was amazing and reasonably priced, for a restaurant. Our food was prepared perfectly and was delicious. Absolutely a gem of a restaurant.
Birthday lunch with family! Everybody likes their food! Soup always good! Fried shrimp BLT awesome! Eggplant fried With crabmeat on top good ! We were there from just before 12:00 until 1:30? Entirely too slow ! I don’t think it was the waiter who did ok but the kitchen was backed up it seemed! It was full on a friday at 12:00! But it usually is so disappointed entree didn’t come out sooner!
Always consistent and delicious !
I love Marcellus for almost any special occasion, as well as for everyday dining. Always consistently good food- even the specials.
Marcello's makes wonderful Italian food. We had a fish dish and a shrimp/linguini pasta--both delicious. Marcello's makes fantastic cappuccinos too, and has a nice by the glass wine list. Service is fantastic. The only glitch on our visit--which was unusual--was a crying baby who was with less than attentive parents. Totally tough situation for the restaurant of course. Still highly recommend Marcello's.
Our server was great! Barbara was very knowledgeable and professional. She took great care of us and knew we had a deadline. We will be back!
Always consistent. Food and wait staff.
Ashley was wonderful taking care of wife and I Good time!!!
Love this place!
The service was very good. The food was great. It was my second time here’s do would definitely go back.
Marcellos is our favorite restaurant in town.
Food is excellent, service is excellent, and ambiance is excellent. Great for special occasions and everyday dining. Great for two people or a group.
Perfect Evening!! The service was fantastic. This lady could not have been nicer or more informative.
It was an amazing meal. The food is always exceptional. The only hiccup on the evening was slow or inattentive waitstaff. My drink wasn’t refilled without having to flag down and ask.
The food is always great, we've always been satisfied. Great service, courteous servers.
My favorite restaurant in Lafayette. I'm always pleased with the food, drinks, atmosphere, and service.
Marcello's continues to be one of my favorite places to dine in Lafayette. The food, ambiance, servers, all come together for such an enjoyable evening. My experience has been consistently excellent. I look forward to many more wonderful times at a great restaurant.
Excellent food and excellent service!
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
Great service, ambiance, and food. Our favorite place for date night and special occasions.
This is one of our favorite restaurants. The food, atmosphere and service are excellent. Very relaxing place to dine. If you're visiting Lafayette this is a must try. Recommend reservations.
Another great meal at Marcello's. The food, drinks and service were all terrific, despite the crowd that was there as well. We had a variety of seafood, pasta and chicken piccata, all were delicious, hot and well prepared. Marcello's also makes a great cappuccino if you are a fan--accompanied with a tasty and crunchy biscotti.
Awesome food and great drinks in a nice location. Awesome wine selection.
Another very good meal at Marcello's. Tonight we enjoyed a wine that was a special for the night, and quite a good value for the price. Entrees were well prepared and tasty as always, and service was professional and competent. The bread is quite good at Marcello's, though tonight it was not quite as good as usual. This is a go-to spot when in town on business.
Great service and delicious food. Would not hesitate to go back.
Still one of my top three restaurants in Lafayette.
This was my second dinner at Marcellos, both business dinners. The Italian food has options beyond standards, and the pasta in particular shines--great taste and presentation, often incorporating Gulf coast seafood. On this night there was Coppola cab wine special--fine wine at a fair price. Service is polished and attentive.
I enjoy being visited at the table by the Owner, Gene. Makes you feel that he's glad you're in his restaurant.
