    My husband and I went during Happy Hour where appetizers, cocktails and wine was half off. We got the Crabmeat Contessa, Sausage skillet, wine, and cocktail and split the Pork Cheek Marsala. All of the food was very good, great service, and sat in a room with the wine bottles, which was very quiet and quaint. We will definitely be going back!

    We dined at 6 pm on Friday evening, it was fairly quiet until later in the evening. Our waiter was not very attentive, we had to call him over to ask for drinks, which we received, but no offers were made to refill our glasses. The food, while tasty, was served without bread, without a vegetable and without a salad, and the portions were smaller than average. Not what we considered good value for the money.

    Our 2nd visit here, the food is excellent, as was our server. Quite a problem with the noise level, but we became adjusted to it after a couple glasses of Pinot Noir. We enjoy italian dishes, and this is probably as tasty as it gets.

    I really thought this would be a great place to reconnect with family. Boy was I wrong! I made a reservation for 4pm and family wasn't able to arrive until 4:30pm. In the meantime the restaurant management made a point to let us know that they had another reservation set for 6pm. I have never in 50 years been told I would have to vacate a table because of another reservation. Shame on them! I will never bother them again!

    It was a very lovely environment and the food was quite good. We went Friday evening so it was busy and a bit louder than expected. Overall, very nice. It would have to be the hottest day for the air conditioning to crap out.

    Best Italian restaurant my wife and I have been too on the North Shore in a long time. The atmosphere was sweet and perfect for a personable date night. Not too loud and the music choice was excellent. Our food came out promptly and the wait staff were true and friendly. We both noted how grate we felt after our meal and could tell that the best ingredients were used in our meals. Thank you for a great night Marcellos! We would highly recommend you to all of our friends and family!

    We had a lovely meal at this downtown Covington restaurant. We had the appetizer with fried eggplant and crabmeat, the eggplant parmesan, the fresh fish of the day prepared with a red sauce, and the breaded veal with artichokes and capers. Everything was fresh and prepared well. My husband thought the veal might have been the best he'd ever had. We will definitely return!

    We were celebrating a birthday and Marcello's never disappoints! We started with the calamari appetizer (perfectly fried with a light breading that allows the full flavor of the calamari to shine) along with a marinara dipping sauce that has just the right amount of heat to it! The signature eggplant croutons on their Caesar salad are outstanding and perfect for those looking to avoid empty carbs!! For dinner, we enjoyed the braised Pork Cheek entrée and I can't remember a more decadent meal! It is fork tender, the sauce is amazing, and all over a creamy polenta. This dish does come with the cutest micro greens to cap it off, but if you don't care for cilantro, you'll want to omit those or do like I did, and just pick them off! They are POTENT! 😊 Our other entrée was the Linguine Tritone - it has the lightest, creamiest sherry cream sauce you can imagine and loaded with crabmeat, lobster, and shrimp. To cap our celebratory dinner off we shared the Tiramisu for dessert and it is definitely one to remember. To me, this one is one of the best I've ever had, the flavors and layers meld together perfectly, there is no 'cakey' consistency to the lady fingers; everything just goes together like magic. If you want a delicious meal, a caring and considerate staff, a lively ambiance (that's not over the top), along with beautiful wines that you get to pick yourself! This is your new "go to" place...

    Everything was delicious. Staff very friendly and made you feel right at home. Nice wine selection which my husband enjoyed getting to see the wines and select from their “cellar” wall. Ambiance was perfect except that it was an unusually cold winter evening for louisiana and we were seated in the porch room was very nice except that it was a bit cold due to large windows. Not sure there’s a solution for that. Not that many freezing temps here so not to worry. A sweater is all ya need. Totally worth it. I can’t wait to go back to try the rest of the items on Menus. So many good choices.
