Fantastic. Everything from service to quality of food to attentiveness of owner is exactly what the Northshore needed. Authentic Italian recipes with a quiet low key but elegant ambiance.

My wife and I gave Macello’s a try and we were not disappointed! We had the Eggplant Parmigiana and the veal parmigiana, which were really good! The veal was tender enough to cut with a fork, no knife needed! Generous servings too. Love the wine set up and the ability to pick out your own wine. Service was good, the place was packed. It was very loud inside, which would be the only hang up if you’re looking for a quiet dinner. We loved the energy of the place and we will definitely be back!

White table cloth dining with a cool vibe made this an inviting dining experience. Getting to “shop” for a bottle of wine with prices right on the bottle was a great add. Great appetizers (Brussels sprouts and calamari) and very tasty entrees (veal parmigiana, spaghetti and meatballs, and lasagna). Bottled beer only but with fair selection. Very tasty deserts (tiramisu, cannoli). Making plans to go again. Great looking patio which we’ll try to book at this popular place.

This is classic Sicilian dining at its best. Veal is cooked to perfection and appetizers are amazing.

First time having dinner at Marcello's. The food was excellent. Daniel, our server, was very friendly and attentive. My husband had the Veal Palermo and I had the Amberjack fish special. Both were outstanding. We purchased the house special wine by the glass and then selected a bottle of Chardonnay from the wine refrigerator. Everyone was helpful and friendly. This is definitely a "go to restaurant" for future outings!

We decided to give this place a try. It was OK. The server was not terribly attentive, the food was good. I fully expected for a brand new place that a manager/owner would walk around asking folks how their experience was. They must've known the table behind us because they spent quite a lot of time with them, but never inquired about our experience. My chicken was good, however the pasta served on the side was extremely dry. It had a few pieces of roasted garlic on top but nothing else to the point that it's stuck together.

All of the food was excellent. We had Daniel as a waiter and he was very good and accommodating. I wanted to alter my entree and he asked the chef to make the changes and they did.

We have been to Marcello's in Covington now three times and the food is very consistently good. The meatballs are also excellent.

It was fabulous from the moment we walked through the door! A cozy Italian restaurant that beckons you to the country side feeling. Terrific waitstaff, bartender, and a delightful owner who clearly loves her business! The food was fabulous! The portions were perfect for leftovers! Can’t wait to go back!!!

The 2 times before, there were “specials”. I suppose going on a week night means you are limited to the standard menu. Seeing that it peppered with mushrooms, even the soup of the day. Makes it difficult for me to maneuver.

Food was excellent. Chef spent time explaining her wine selection on the floor. She, along with other wait staff, continues to check to make sure everything was to our liking. This location moved here from the St Charles New Orleans space. Covington is elevated to have a Marcellos!
