Marcello's of New Orleans
With a passion for food and wine, our patriarch, Gene Todaro, Sr., arrived in New Orleans from Sicily in 1961 and, since then, has succeeded as both a wine merchant and restauranteur. Today, MARCELLO'S is the marriage of those two specialties. From Italian classics to modern chef creations, our menu is simple but robust. With our entire restaurant selection on display for guests to personally peruse, our wine program is unique throughout the city. In addition, competitive pricing distinguishes MARCELLO'S from traditional restaurant wine mark-ups.
At MARCELLO'S, you will experience gracious service, an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere, excellent comfort cuisine and a competitively priced, comprehensive wine selection.

A wonderful family dinner with outstanding food, service and wine! Thank you!
Visiting New Orleans and we were looking for a place to eat away from the French Quarter. Saw a review for Marcellos and decided to try it. So happy we did. The staff was extremely attentive and friendly. Food was delicious and much better than expected.
Great food and service. I’m never disappointed and always pleasantly surprised by how wonderful Marcello’s is.
First time to Dine at your restaurant and the food was amazing. The staff was very courteous and we had some of the best cocktails ever. Worm and friendly atmosphere! Be one of our favorites when visiting NOLA .
Always a magnificent meal here. Great wines to choose from. If you decide to get a bottle, you get to walk through their wine shelves to pick your own. Don't worry, they will also discuss the wines with you as you wander. Prices are listed on the bottles for the wines, and there is very little mark up. Always a wonderful evening here.
Fabulous restaurant. Magnificent food. Amazing Chef Blakley always does it right. Elliott brings outstanding service to the table. Great wine selection at such reasonable prices. Simply a perfect dining experience. The entire team here just makes it work. You’ll always go back for more!
Marcello's is an amazing restaurant. It's a wine market so we were able to look through their selection of bottles and buy the bottle we wanted to have with dinner (great prices). The food was delicious. We are going back to try everything on the menu!
Great food and service
Love the unique wine selection
The sauces were delicious! And I really enjoyed being able to pick my own bottle of wine from the wine racks. Great idea.
Love this restaurant! The staff was friendly, didn't hover, but we did not ever lack for service. They accomodated any change we had to a dish with a smile. Food was fabulous and I am a foodie! Recommend this restaurant highly! Bon appetit.
Delicious Italian food. Been on numerous occasions. Consistently good. Great selection of wine.
Great authentic Italian. Classic Sicilian gravy. Very fresh ingredients. The table bread was amazing! Service wonderful. Highly recommend. Great alternative to your typical tourist NOLA quisine.
Co-worker had dinner here on Sat and she loved it so much she wanted to go back again with me the following night. Food was delicious, great wine, great bread right out of the oven, dessert was heavenly. Service from Talia was top-notch. Would love to visit again next time I'm in New Orleans.
I’ve never been to a restaurant where you can pick your own bottle of wine by walking through the shelves to make my decision. I loved it.
The food was delicious and the waitress a delight.
Elliot is such a sweet angel from heaven.
That Domaine Serene was delicious.
Good food, friendly wait staff, and you sit at tables amid rows and rows of wine racks filled with Italian wines of every description.
This was the most amazing restaurant. We loved it so much tonight that we decided to come back tomorrow. The wait staff and the regulars are so amazing and inviting. We were able to meet the head chef and the owner. She was the most amazing lady. We were so pleased with this experience. The food was amazing, tasty, and classy. 10/10 would recommend.
The food was excellent and the service was exceptional!! The only thing I would change is the music that was just a little too loud. It was distracting but overall a WONDERFUL meal. We will definitely return!!
Awesome service, very knowledgeable and friendly. Food was delicious. Everyone ordered something different and everyone gave rave reviews.
My wife and I were visiting New Orleans. We went here last time, December 2016 and had a 5 star meal. We couldn't wait to go back. This time, the food seemed a little over cooked and although it was still good, it wasn't quite as spectacular as last time. We had the pork cheeks, which we had recently in Italy. It was prepared differently, which was fine, but as I said, seemed a little dry and 'well done". The Spaghetti Bolognese was also a bit dry and over done. I will give them another chance and I would still recommend this place to friends.
Service could have been a bit more attentive. I think she got busy with other customers. We enjoyed our meal, the experience, and we will be back. Overall, a very enjoyable evening.
Fathers Day dinner! Fantastic service, food and wine!!!
Wonderful ambiance, food quality, service, wine selection and attention from staff was top notch. Highly recommend without hesitation.
We had a fabulous time. Our waiter, Justin, was totally great. We are definitely coming back!
First time there. Wow! Did not disappoint. Amazing welcome by hostess, comfortable seating, amazing server (Eliott), stupendous wine selection (and Chris is so helpful), reasonable cost. Blown away. All around.
Always incredible in every way!!
Despite our unassuming appearance, we were treated very well (mom & young son). Food is fantastic! Very tasty authentic Italian cuisine! Service was extremely attentive! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thank You !
A little mystified with all the 5 star ratings and rave reviews. The food was adequate - certainly not a spectacular example of good Italian cuisine. Our service person was odd - friendly, but trying too hard to the point it made us uncomfortable. The wine concept is a good one in theory, but not executed smoothly at all. We are visiting, and ate here with “local” friends. All of us were underwhelmed.
Fabulous. Fabulous server Talia. Fabulous bartender Chad. Fabulous food. Fabulous, happy, friendly crowd. Had a FABULOUS TIME!!!
Great dining experience, interesting ambiance, very high end wine list. And not so noisy!
Always fabulous and the best wine prices in the city.
Food and service was great. Interesting approach to wine by the bottle. It’s like a wine store to pick out your wine
Great place. I over ordered. Portions are great and tasty. The appetizers are bigger than most you get elsewhere.
Don't waste your time. Nothing special. Too bad considering we chose it as our anniversary dinner.
Bring your crayons. A $200 dinner for two buys you a paper table cloth.
Our server was great. Attentive and gave us some suggestions. Unfortunately the food was mediocre at best. The sauce for the pasta tasted like it came out of a can and was terrible. The veal parmigiana was poorly cooked, very greasy, and too much cheese. The appetizer of eggplant, zucchini and peppers, was very good, but that was about it. For a restaurant that was supposed to be so highly rated, the food was below expectations.
Marcello's of New Orleans is a wonderful restaurant. The atmosphere is inviting and comfortable. The food and service were excellent. Apparently, Marcello's got it's start as a wine store, so wine enthusiasts should enjoy their selections. (I'm not qualified to evaluate wines, but I could tell this was a spectality of theirs.) More traditional Italian fare is offered along with their versions of seafood and steak. We enjoyed our meal immensely and hope to return soon.
The meatball appetizer was a stand out, as were the veal entrees and the spaghetti with meatballs. But, what really made it special was our fantastic server, Jennifer. She was terrific, especially considering she had a picky table! Everyone left full and happy!
Wonderful as always!
