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.

This is our first time here, and we will definitely return. The service was fabulous, as was the food.
Unique dining experience, whereby you can select a bottle of wine from a large selection of wines on racks in the dining room. Suggest you do this, as a glass of wine is $10 + ....better deal to get a bottle. Lasagna was good ,mistra salad excellent as was the Tiramisu , Enjoyed the evening.
Great wine collection, staff, and food. We had vongole, linguini with veals, tomato basil soup, and ceasar salad, all of which were great. The serving person also made us a day by bringing a cake for both of my parents who had their birthdays by surprise. Great place to dine in.
Birthday. Very good would recommend
Great food and the best service we have had yet in NOLA. Mike was a great service that gave us some good local tips in town and was knowledgeable about the food!
This is a place for wine lovers. The menu is excellent, but the ability to pick wines at affordable prices with no pressure guidance sets Marcello’s apart.
Our waiter, Christian, was exceptionally exceptional. He made our experience all the better.
Our first visit to Marcello's was great. The food is excellent, so is the service. I would definitely recommend.
The food came quickly and our server, Christian was great. I ordered the seafood tritone. It was good but heavy on the sauce and could’ve used more noodles.
Had a great dinner with Derick's help as our waiter. He led us into muscles, scallops and pasta. Very attentive. Will return!!!
Great spot .....service was superior to any other we had attended this week .Kudos to Christian
I had the veal and it was exceptional! Service was spot on, and my business partner had the pork cheeks. One of the Big Easy’s best!
Outstanding food, service and staff! Thank you!
Always a Pleasure! We keep coming back for the food, service, and atmosphere - and always the wine. We love trying new vintners and there’s always something new. Much more fun perusing the bottles than second-guessing a list.
Great food, friendly service and reasonable prices for the area. Traditional Italian with some interesting modern twists.
I love this restaurant. Browse the racks for your own wine, use the knowledge from the wait staff. Clean inside. Great food.
Great food and great stafg
I had the Veal and angel hair pasta and the grilled artichokes for appetizer. Be sure to get the cannoli for desert. Service was astounding. Parking can be tricky. Great dining experience
Food was excellent. The bartender, Morty, was very knowledgeable and personable.
Chris and his staff are wonderful
Always love, love, love Marcello's!!! Jen, our server, was the best (as everyone always is). Will keep coming back for more!
Great food and location
The food was really good. It just a long time to serve it.
Amazing food!! However service was subpar. We were checked on maybe once during our main meal and we ordered espresso however never received them.
Great experience. Great service and great food. One of our favorites!!
Ambiance is very nice....100 year old building, racks of wine separating dining areas. The grilled long stem artichokes were a good light appetizer. We both had veal dishes that were well prepared . Portions were just the right size for us. You can browse the wine racks for the wine you want with your meal.
We made a 4:30 reservation for pre-theater dinner. Discovered that they have half price wine-by-the-glass, cocktails, and appetizers before 6:00! The menu is fairly classic, and the food was delightful. Though we're from out-of-town, we'll definitely return to Marcello's.
Food was far too salty!
Gem of a restaurant. My husband and I had a lovely dinner here together. They have a wine shop with an amazing selection of Italian (and other) wines that you can shop for your own bottle and they will cork and serve it to you. Food was amazing, and there were plenty of vegetarian options. The Eggplant Parmigiana was the best I've had and my hubby said the same of the meat spaghetti!
Definitely recommend this place!
We've eaten there several times...the food is always consistently excellent. The restaurant doubles as a wine retail store and the selection is excellent. The General Manager is extremely knowledgeable about wine and makes excellent recommendations. Additionally, the wine is very fairly priced.
The food was the star of the show. The restaurant has a nice comfortable vibe, we were not rushed, and enjoyed taking our time. Our waiter needs some training - his skills didn't match the prices or the quality of food. Nothing major but not up to our expectations. We will certainly go back.
Great place. The pork cheek was outstanding. The staff was outgoing and friendly. We felt welcomed the entire visit. Definitely going back next trip.
Everything was wonderful as always.
Fantastic experience. We loved Marcello's and have already told many friends about our experience. We will be back. Service was excellent and of course the food was fantastic!
ALL GREAT. FOOD WAS DELICIOUS , WINE PERFECT, DESERT SWEET.
Great service, delicious food. Will definitely dine here again.
We picked this place for date night as we were visiting from out of town and so glad we did! Great place! The staff was friendly and the food was amazing! Definitely recommending to friends that visit the area.
Excellent service and delicious meal
Wonderful dinner experience.
Amazing wine selection with a superb sommelier!!
One of the best Italian meals we have had.
Wow! Fabulously fabulous! Amazing dinner and spot on service! Our server Christian was fun and professional! Love perusing the wines in the rack. Great ambience! Go!.
