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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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.
