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.

La comida es muy buena pero el servicio fue pésimo, muy grosero el mesero que hasta nos aventó la cuenta.
One of my favorite neighborhood restaurants! Always consistent with the food, quality, atmosphere, and excellent service! The entire staff makes you feel welcome, and the food is amazing!
Consistently great food, extremely friendly and helpful staff, always accommodating to our special requests--will always recommend to friends.
Sat at the bar, service was absolutely awesome!!
Wonderful food. Excellent service. Very flexible and attentive to my wife's food allergies. Definitely recommend.
Marcello's never disappoints! The food and service are always excellent.
Best Italian Restaurant in the country. New Yorkers agree
Great dinner! Only issue was some food was room temperature. Could have been served a little hotter.
Delicious meal. Wonderful Italian cuisine . Outstanding service staff. Great ambiance. We will be back.
Some of the best italian food I've ever had. Awesome service also. Had the special of the night and it was fantastic!
Awesome service amazing Food & wine selection service was outstanding all the staff wa knowledgeable
Comfortable and convenient location. Seated right away. Entire staff is friendly and helpful.
The calamari was a bit over fried. The mista salad was delicious and different.
The masala pork cheek was delicious tender and delicious. The veal Parmesan was wonderful and the nice waitress out bolognese sauce on my spaghetti which was great!
The portion were generous and I thought prices fairly.
We didn’t have room for dessert and the choices weren’t too interesting.
The ambiance is far from warm but is welcoming. There were a few women at the bar who were loud enough to be asked to leave but weren’t.
The good is great and I’d go back and try something else.
It has an extensive wine list...but I don’t drink wine.
The food here is always amazing. This is easily my favorite Italian spot in the city. Service is wonderful as well.
We had an excellent dinner here, celebrating an anniversary. Our waitress was phenomenal; polite, knowledgeable, and attentive. The food was incredible. I had the King Salmon with pasta which was absolutely delicious. They remembered that we were celebrating our anniversary, and brought us cannoli, which my husband raved about. We will definitely return here when we next visit New Orleans.
New Year’s Eve... 9:45 pm reservation , seated by 9:50 pm.. wine director extremely helpful in recommending an Italian wine that was $98.. great choice., We had the pork cheeks very good , but ran out of polenta.. I definitely recommend, we walked from our Marriott hotel .. 15 min
This is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in Nola. Let’s start with the bread. OMG. You have to ask them to be liberal with the oil and parm, but don’t eat too much. I LOVE the shrimp scampi. It’s so fresh and flavorful and plentiful. My date had the chicken Parm. His was easily enough for two meals. Server was fantastic. The manager Chris, worked the room and made sure the guests were well served. Great dining experience
Marcello's is always a nice date night spot for me. The service is wonderful. The food was a little off this year, as my Chicken Mole was a little over flour-ed and had too much breading. Last year was much better. Still, it is a very nice restaurant.
Great food & service!
Had an early dinner before going downtown for New Year's Eve celebration. Very pleasant experience and great food. Would like to return for a later time slot.
Delicious food and even more delicious wine. Thanks, all!
Great Italian restaurant
Great all over
This restaurant has become our favorite in NOLA. The food is excellent, and the service is the best. I highly recommend for any occasion.
Marcellos was delicious! The service was fantastic - thank you Rene- and the concept was really great. We loved this special little gem on our visit to Nola!!!
Ambience and service were top notch. We loved the wine selection and assistance from the sommelier. Food was decent but for us it wasn’t nearly as wonderful as other Italian places we’ve dined at. The marinara lacked depth and the bolognese was over-seasoned with nutmeg flavors. But overall it was a lovely experience.
Wonderful! We will go back!
NICE ambience, incredible wine racks, excellent service and quality traditional Italian food with large portions
Wonderful service, amazing food and easy to walk too from Canal.
We visited for a late afternoon dinner - Great wine & appetizer specials.
A great concept -pick your wine. Told no markup except prices tended to be 2-3 times going retail. Markup already there!
Food was well done but nothing special. Caprese salad was rubber mozzarella and styrofoam/hothouse tomatoes. Service hit or miss.
Our experience at Marcello’s was wonderful. The waiting staff was friendly and attentive. Our food was absolutely amazing and came out very quickly. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Its hard to evaluate a restaurant on a holiday visit, but we did . It was rather noisy, but the ambiance was
good. The food portions were large. I prefer my veal to be more delicate and flavorful, but it was fine, and served with ample pasta and hot. I would try it ag
Met for Christmas Eve Dinner. Loved that we could choose a bottle of wine from their extensive selection, priced at standard retail, and have it served with our dinner with no additional cost.
Beautiful space with an amazing wine selection. Minus one star due to mistakes in the kitchen, but it was a busy night.
The food was excellent and our table host, Taylor, was very attentive and helpful. She made sure we didn’t want for anything. The space is very attractive and is perfect for small, intimate dining but can handle large groups. We tried the less typical Italian dishes and were treated to a fantastic meal. I’m already anticipating my next visit.
Every trip to NO means a trip to Marcellos. The food and service have always been excellent and wines by the bottle or glass at retail prices is unheard of in the restaurant industry. Just a short trolly ride from the French Quarter takes you out of the madness to a great dining experience.
Delicious! Great date night spot.
Always delicious. The Pork Cheek meal is probably one of the best dishes on the menu.
A group of us went to Marcello’s for Christmas lunch today and everything was fabulous! After being disappointed in our choices the past few years, this was a welcome return to a really nice lunch with fantastic food.
