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.

Marcello's never fails to satisfy - such a great place for a business lunch. Grilled artichoke is a favorite and everything else is wonderful! Not a bad choice on the menu! Our server, Justyn, was friendly and efficient - overall another great experience.

I ordered the spaghetti and meatballs. There was so much sauce on top of the spaghetti but I could not taste the pasta. The meatball was flavorless and soft. My husband and our guests all ordered chicken Parmesan. The chicken was so heavily breaded that it took away from any flavor of chicken, sauce or pasta. The quality of the food served at this restaurant is comparable to ordering the same meals at a fast food family operation. I would never go back nor will I recommend anyone go there.

We picked Marcello ‘s from the selection of Restaurant Week New Orleans. The variety of offerings was wonderful and the addition of the wine pairings made the special menu exceptional. We have already told several friends and plan to go back.

We have been a patron of Marcello's for years and the service and food is always outstanding. We have had the same server last 4 times we have been there and she does a wonderful job of making our meals come out quickly and removes plates immediatly and is always there with a smile but not hovering over our table. I love the wine selection and always can counts a great service in selecting just the right bottle. We recommend to all of our friends visiting Nola.

First time to Marcello on a friend’s recommendation - major props to my friend for the recommendation- delicious selections for dinner and really expansive yet well priced wine choices. We were lucky enough to come on a night when the wine buyer was there and he was super down to earth and helpful in picking a bottle. Good place for a date, business dinner or family get together. Service was outstanding. Have already recommended this spot to others and plan to return on visit next month to NOLA.

The restaurant is lovely. Service was good. The meal was lacking. The spaghetti with clams was very wet and flat. It was not hot. Clams were rubbery. Pasta was tasteless. I was born and raised in New York. If I had gone to Little Italy this would not have been an acceptable plate. Price for meal I felt was high even for New Orleans. I have had much better.

When out-of-town friends visit, this is one of the places we take them. Food is consistently great, service and ambiance is just right. Everything from the bread to the lasagna, pork cheeks, Molli chicken, clams pasta, all have been delicious.

Great place for lunch or dinner, whatever the occasion. Food is great. Service is awesome. Chris, the restaurant manager, is very knowledgable in wine(s). They have a wine market in the back of the restaurant. You can with the help of Chris pick out a bottle for the table to enjoy. We dine almost weekly if not once a month just to say hello to the staff. Would definitely recommend.

Just ok. Good service. If you like thick intense red sauce on everything it will be an enjoyable evening. Lafayette venue had better food. Good wine selection. Good service

Thoroughly enjoyed our first visit here. Interesting concept of being able to wander and pick you own wine. We had a wonderful waitress who suggested two bottles based on our orders. They were both amazing and reasonably priced! The chicken parmigiana was amazing! Down side was that we were seated in the back corner, with reservations, even though there were many tables available. Would still highly recommend!

Absolute wonderful dinning experience every time! The staff is so genuine, food and drinks are traditional yet innovative, and atmosphere is inviting and relaxing. One of our top choices for a relaxing date night any time of the year. They have indoor, outdoor, and bar seating. Music is lightly playing in the background giving a wonderful atmosphere to the gorgeous decor. Their bar is not the pretentious type, yet you can order any drink from their expert bartenders and be amazed. The wine selection alone is stunning - love the fact that you can go to the back and select your own wine, all very casually. As far as food is concerned, everything we've had on the menu is worth eating again. My favorites are the calamari, clam pasta, and shrimp pasta. Oh, and any dessert because they're all perfection. The portions are substantial and there is something on the menu to please everyone for 3-4 courses for a long meal or for one entree for a quick meal. Honestly cannot recommend Marcello's enough!
