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.

Overall = Fair, but with a bit of effort, could be better. $9 Caesar salad was very small with pudding-like garlic paste dressing, far overpriced. It was the size of a side salad, which would normally come with an entrée. The $19 special pasta ravioli dish was quite tasty, but buried in a bowl of heavy sauce, hiding very little ravioli and shrimp. We have visited and enjoyed Marcello's maybe 8 times and, unfortunately, this seems to be the norm. Sorry to say, I don't know that we will be returning. Atmosphere is lovely. Service very good.

The wait for our food was long and an order was left out. The lasagna my girlfriend ordered was cold in the middle but they quickly fixed it. The food was great which made up for the long wait. We would have been to full to enjoy the portion left out either way. I would go back, just not on a weekend night due to how busy they were.

Excellent dining in a quiet neighborhood restaurant far from the crowds of the French quarter.

As ALWAYS, delicious food and wine and delightful, knowledgeable service. Marcello's is probably my favorite New Orleans restaurant.

A group of us ate here about 6 months ago. At that time I believe this was the second of their three locations (one in Metairie in the metro area, and one in Lafayette). At that time this place was happenin' and hoppin'. This time not so much. Maybe it being soon after Mardi Gras there was some post party depression. The staff seemed sad. (The Metairie location has since closed.)

The food was good, but not extraordinary. Standouts were the ravioli pasta app and the chicken entrée. The service was reasonable but not really warm.

Wonderful time at Marcello’s. It was perfect for our date night. Waiter knew a lot about wine and pointed us in a great direction. We will be back soon!
