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.

Pretty good food. Very casual no need to dress up but you would fit in either way. Love the “wine list”. The concept is great only issue is with all the wine in the floor it’s a little warm nothing an ice bucket can’t correct.

Fantastic food!!! Veal Molli was delicious!!! Service was good, except waiter complained about how busy he was and how the front was disorganized. You really don’t want to hear about all that.
Chris the sommelier was most helpful and picked out great wines for us!

We discovered Marcello's a couple months ago even though it is just around the corner from our downtown condo. I've eaten there 3 times since. The food is outstanding with options for the traditionalist or the foodie looking for some new options. I've had the pork cheeks twice and the short rib twice. I intend to branch out each time, but those two dishes are so good I end up breaking down and ordering one of them again. Also, don't forgo the grilled herb focaccia that your server brings to the table. Some of the best bread I've ever had.

Visiting New Orleans for a few days and was looking for something other than Creole/Cajun cooking. Great option for an Italian meal. Wonderfully prepared and excellent service.

Our server Amanda was very knowledgeable (thanks again!). We selected a bottle of Amerone from their large selection (akin to shopping at a wine discount store). The service was attentive and professional. Everything we ordered was excellent (artichoke hearts wow). Would highly recommend this gem

Dining before theater at the Saenger can sometimes become stressful. Our server, Jennifer, handled it perfectly! She hit the right combo of attentive, helpful, & friendly. Her advice of cocktails & seafood pasta dish was spot on! We dined here a few years ago & wanted to return - so glad we did....we'll be back!

Quiet, competent service by a caring staff highlighted dinner for two out-of-towners from DC who were anxious to escape the noise and crowds of the Canal Street area. Looking for a good and authentically Italian restaurant, preferably within walking distance from the Marriott, was a challenge to us as contenders to Marcello's seemed focused on telling us about their New Orleans flair with Italian food, exactly what we were trying to avoid. Finally came across Marcello's menu and decided to give the restaurant a try, as it was not too far from our hotel. Glad we did. Only negative: we would have preferred standard Italian bread, rather than an oil-soaked bread cube in advance of the meal. That's a minor issue, though; we will return if we are ever in New Orleans again.

We had a wonderful experience celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. The staff was attentive, fun and engaging. The executive chef brought us a special treat and a glass of champagne to celebrate. I would highly recommend the food which was tremendous and the dining experience. Well worth it

Everything about our experience was great. The server, the food, all of it. As a vegetarian, I was disappointed there weren't very many options, but our server told me it was not problem. Tell him what I wanted and he'd make something happen. I had a great meal, and we sat outside for a good 2.5 hours. The wines? You can walk through the wines and just pick one and they'll open it at your table.

Amanda was amazing, really like the atmosphere, but we had higher expectations on the food, husband had the lamb shank pasta, couldn’t taste the lamb,drenched in sauce so basically that’s all you could taste, the spaghetti and meatballs were just ok, meatballs were dry and sauce didn’t have much flavor, plus side my daughter had chicken Parmesan and LOVED it! We will be back and I’ll try something different. We really like the restaurant, location and the vibe!

New Orleans has a lot of good food but limited for authentic Italian food. Marcello’s is really good and top notch service. As my waiter said “Just like NY Italian” and he was right. It’s all about the sauce and theirs is excellent. Great restaurant

Marcello's is a laid back Italian restaurant serving varied menu of favorites and chef's specials. I enjoyed the Lamb Ragu which was flavorful with a rich mouth feel. My dining companions had the Chicken Parmigiana, which he said was very good. The server and kitchen readily accommodated a modest special off-menu request my wife ordered, which she also said was good.
