Marcello's of Lafayette
Dinner: Monday - Saturday: 5:00pm - 9:30pm
My favorite place in Lafayette. Gene runs a great place and has a phenomenal wine selection at very good prices.
Marcello’s is truly a hidden gem! The food, drinks, service and ambiance are wonderful and make for a great evening.
Marcello's is one of my favorite restaurants between Lake Charles, Louisiana and New Orleans, Louisiana. The food is exceptional, and I love the place. It has such an old Italian feel. The menu has lots of choices from authentic Italian dishes to nouveau cuisine. One of our guests has dietary restrictions, and they accommodated her requests very easily. Highly recommend.
Great place to eat! The atmosphere was friendly as was the staff and the food was great
Delicious food and excellent service.
Been there many times and always outstanding.
BUT, on a Monday night, my wife's food was extremely over salted...........to the point it was not eatable. Sent it back, server was gracious, Manager replaced with another dish (at no charge) that was served when I finished my dinner. Oh, and they forgot to bring out my Caprese salad. It was really an awful experience but to be fair, only one of many experiences there.
Excellent service. Outstanding food. Pork cheek was amazing.
Great food and service! Always consistent. We will definitely return.
Always a favorite. Every item on the menu is delicious. The family recipes are superb! Wine selection is fantastic!
Food was great! The bread was fresh and hot out the oven, the eggplant parm melted in your mouth, and the crabmeat contessa was uniquely pleasing. With that said, the service was interesting to say the least. The person who filled the water glasses didn’t speak (not even in response to a thank you), never met your eyes, and left me with an empty glass quiet often. The waiter, too, wasn’t too keen on eye contact.
This restaurant never disappoints!! Highly recommend. One of my favorites in Lafayette.
Waitress was very good and timely
Food was wonderful

Waiter was fantastic. Even able to recommend things off the menu.
Great food, great service. Best restaurant in town!
I am from Lafayette and this is one of my absolute favorite restaurants in Lafayette. If you enjoy authentic Italian food this is the place your you. Best wine selection in Lafayette. Great service!
The pasta was very good, nice restaurant, service was excellent.
Great as usual. Tasty but a little slow on the kitchen. Had plenty of drink.
This was an awesome all around experience. Food very flavorful and portions were just right. Waiter was knowledgeable about the wine and recommended a very nice bottle. Service was fantastic. The surprise of the evening was the croutons. Will be back
Good service if you are not in one of the back rooms.
Food was very good. My husband loved the lobster mac and cheese. My artichokes were great. The veal parmigiana was divine. Service was a tad slow but they did look slammed at 7:00
Senior ring ceremony
Great service great food
Always delicious! You can’t beat the Shrimp Papate’! The service is always good, too.
Consistent, reliable and always good for the best Italian in town.
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
