Located in New Orleans at 715 St. Charles Avenue in an historic 1930"s building, MARCELLO'S Restaurant & Wine Bar is owned and operated by the Todaro Family.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
