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.

The food was excellent! The server seemed agitated and rushed even though we were her only and last table. The main issue / problem we had is that after buying a bottle of red for for $177 it was poured into a decanter and apparently the bottle was discarded. Only half the bottle was consumed. We were not offered to cork it to take with us. ALL other New Orleans fine dining venues did offer and allow us to take the remainder with us.
Dinner with friends
Absolutely amazing. Went for a friend's birthday- so attentive, so knowledgeable. Insane wine selection. Food was spectacular. Vibrant, fun staff that were super engaging. Will return many, many times in the future.
Service was excellent and enjoyed all the food. Nice wine selection. Highly recommend.
We loved eating at this fun restaurant. We had a great meal and met some locals at another table that took us out to a famous bar, La Fittes later. It was a great night.
Good food good wine nice atmosphere
Delicious as usual. The staff is always so friendly and make you feel special!
Thalia was so attentive to me and the food is impeccable at your establishment. Thank you for an excellent me and stellar service!
Food is great as always. Great ambience and atmosphere!!
Good food, great service, extensive wine selection. Overall a great experience.
Very good food. Service just ok. Uncomfortably high noise levels inside - they should really address this- we sat outside however quickly found out that outside dining was way too noisy with cars and streetcars driving by the whole time - especially with the streetcars had to stop conversations until passed by due to the noise.
Excellent food and also a great variety of whine
We have been here several times. Food is always great, as is the service. Love the grilled artichoke hearts. We will be back.
A bit disappointed with our waitress rushing us throughout. We dined on a Tuesday night and the restaurant was not overly crowded. Only four of us for a nice dinner out but interrupted and rushed.
It was noticeable and most unfortunate. Food was delicious as always!!
A great anniversary lunch in a special setting...wonderful food and service...couldn’t want more.
We booked at Marcello's for a gathering as a part of a conference. It was a quick walk from Canal St and nice to get out into NOLA a bit. The group was from across the US and the UK and everyone enjoyed their hand-crafted cocktails and beer, a very good charcuterie plate and our entrees.
Flavor in layers and layers. Great find.
The homemade sausage was over cooked and dry. The eggplant parm had very thick pieces of eggplant, should be thin and nicely fried.
Service was excellent. Very few diners in the restaurant.
Everything was excellent, the food, the service, the wine selection 100% perfect!
Delicious food, superb service, and excellent wine.
We very much enjoyed the atmosphere, the service from Chris, the wine, our entrees and dessert. It was a perfect meal for our last night in New Orleans.
Impecable service, amazing food, always a must when we're in the area.
Love the gluten free pasta options. Delicious entrees.
Food was absolutely delicious. Highly recommended.
Great cheese and meat plate and some of the best Chicken Parm in the country.
Wonderful! I suggest sharing entrees to make room for each course.
As always Marcellos is great. If it’s not right they’ll fix it. Great selection of wine, beer and mixed drinks with the NOLA style. Great location.
Love dining alfresco and watching the world go by. The food and service is always impeccable. Get the cheese board and some great vino.
They don’t have a wine list. You have to look through racks of wine to find the bottle you want, like at a wine store but you are in the dining room. They say people like it, but I was not a fan.
Good food and great wine selection. We keep coming back to enjoy the food with different wines and enjoy the off-the-rack selections. Always appreciate the good advice offered in making our selections.
Good service, good value for wine, good food, casual, unpretentious which is great. I would recommend
Service was great and food was delicious as usual!
Several dishes were fine but came out lukewarm to cold. We told the server. As a “thank you”, she brought out 1 cannolo with 4 forks as dessert. Have you ever seen 4 adults try to split 1 small cannolo? We thought it was a “lukewarm” thank you.
One of our favorite restaurants in New Orleans. Never disappoints. Our latest visit was filled with delightful authentic Italian dishes, wonderful service, and a fun crowd!
Our waitress Jackie totally enhanced our experience! Wonderful atmosphere, energy and food.
Too spicy. We have eaten there before and thought it was wonderful. This time didn’t like it.
Delicious food and excellent service! Our waiter made good suggestions and was right on point with his recommendations.
Large portions! Enough to share.
While my family, wife and daughter, have previously dined at Marcello's this was my first dining experience at the restaurant and I choose it for mid-week date night due to it's location and reputation. Our waitress was excellent and was very well versed on the restaurant's cuisine and exceptional wine selection. A rather unique dining experience, as the restaurant encourages their diners to personally walk through their display of excellent wines to select one for their enjoyment. Our meal was superb from appetizer, a antipasti board, zuppa D'Iieri, mista salad, veal palermo and a most excellent tiramisu one of the best we've enjoyed. If you're looking for a lovely restaurant to spend some quality time with that special person in your life, visit Marcello's for a memorable dining experience.
A truly outstanding meal with nice, quiet service. The soft shell crab pasta was simply fabulous. Good wine selection and nice appetizers. Definitely a repeat.
