    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.

    It was my 1st time dining at Marcello's in Covington. A few years back I dined at the one on St. Charles in NOLA before theater. I found the food as delicious as I remember from long ago! My Veal Scallopini was so tender & that lemon butter sauce just put it over the top. I plan to return soon.

    Food is good, some dishes better than others. The lobster bisque was very good. Caprese salad, not even close to what it should be. The speckled trout special was also very good. My wife had a shrimp dish which was outstanding. The service was so so. Waitress was pleasant and helpful, but her duties where split with some tables outside and some tables inside. It would be better to have the waitress in one zone, so she can be more attentive to her assigned tables. Second visit to the restaurant, but do plan on returning.
