Had not been here in a few years, but had always wanted to go back since my first experience there was wonderful! This time did not disappoint as well, and was more impressive since we were a large party. Our servers were friendly and personable and attended to our every wish. The food was hot, fresh, and delicious! My only complaint, and it's not really a complaint, is that they don't serve the bread the way they used to (soaked in olive oil and then baked). However, don't let that stop you from choosing Marcello's as your to-go place for a fabulous Italian meal. We will go back every time we are in Lafayette!

It was my first time eating at the Lafayette location, I’d only eaten at the St Charles restaurant. I was not disappointed!! Delicious! I actually drove two hours to bring a couple friends to lunch there. They loved it also! The Mtruffle Mac and Cheese is a must have!! Can’t wait to make the trek again

I requested a romantic table for 2 on Open Table, and our quaint little table was ready upon arrival. Very nice atmosphere, and all the food was delicious. Not a drinker, but the wine selection looked wonderful. Great place for a quiet romantic dinner. You should definitely try it!

Good dinner on recent Saturday nite while visiting Lafayette area. Snapper picatta was excellent, as well as veal parmigana. Artichoke appetizer good. Caprese salad missed the mark though. Great wine selection and interesting close out section. Waiter was spread thin but still provided adequate service. A good bet if you are in the area.

Waiter was terrible. Waiter had a large table to take care of and did not bother with us. Bought a nice bottle of wine for a birthday dinner and took an hour to get bread. Horrible service for a night that was suppose to be a special occasion. Ended up leaving after talking to manager.

We each tried the soup of the day, which was great. I don't remember what it was called but it was a slightly spicy lentil. I had the linguine tritone which was very rich. I enjoyed it but I'm glad I got the smaller portion! It was plenty of food. My husband had the pork cheek marsala and if I could go back, I would have ordered that! It was amazing. I enjoyed being able to peruse and pick out our own wine. It was overpriced likely, but I liked the experience.

Marcello's is simply the best restaurant in Lafayette, bar none. The food is exquisite and the Sicilian flair is authentic. Kudos to Mallory and her kitchen staff! Now, there is great food at a number of places in Lafayette. The wine list is far reaching. Probably the best for quite a distance. But the real pearl in this oyster are the people. From Gene all the way through the entire staff, everyone is friendly, knowledgeable and just a joy to spend time with. And it is not simply marketing and business practices. They are genuinely good and friendly people! I simply have no higher praise I can give to this place.
