Marcello's of New Orleans
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.

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.
Incredible food and service! I’ll definitely be back!
I went to Marcello's during New Orleans Restaurant week. It was my first visit but I will definitely return. The service was outstanding, the food amazing and the wine choices were incredible. Loved everything about it!
Great place... people were awesome. Excellent wine selection..service was great, my only ping is they didn’t make their own pasta.. That said I’d 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
Great place to eat!! The pork cheek was excellent.
Terrific food. Great service. Big, beautiful beautiful windows.
Wonderful food,atmosphere and service. We have eaten at a lot of great NOLA restaurants and this is very high on our list!!
great gem of a restaurant. have been there before and will always recommend this place to anyone. great service and great grub!
wonderful waiter food DMN GOOD THE ENTRANCE WAS POLITE THAT STARTED MY BIRTHDAY OFF RT. N EVERYTHING JUST FELL INTO PLACE
Great experience, wonderful food and wine.
Great restaurant! Reasonably priced but top tier in revere way. Possibly our favorite restaurant in a city of outstanding restaurants.
Loved picking the wine at a great price. Worried a little bit that wine was at room temp not at 55.
The pork cheek Marsala was excellent. We enjoyed taking advantage of the Coolinary menu. We had calamari, ceaser salad & great chocolate dessert with our entrees. The service was outstanding. Love this restaurant. We will be back.
Enjoyed the chefs creative presentation and diversity of flavors.
Eggplant Palmero was outstanding!!! Fabulous wine selection where you walk through the restaurant and pick out your own bottle
Love this restaurant. We had a great seat and our waitress was excellent.
Food was delicious. Be sure you come with a big appetite as the servings are large.
Second visit for wife and I. Both times we were celebrating and event in our lives. Both times we were impressed by all this restaurant had to offer.
Marcello's is one of our favorites in NOLA. We always visit when we are in town. The food is amazing and the service is impeccable. Can't wait to go back next time we are in town.
Food, service and ambience were all wonderful. Mike, our waiter chose our wine for us. Very delicious and well priced.Looking forward to coming back again.
One of the best Italian restaurants in Nola!
Food was delicious and our waitress wonderful. We loved the ambiance and will definitely return.
Good for a romantic dinner.
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!
It was our daughter birthday and they sent her and her sister a special kids drink and also sent her a dessert on top of a delicious meal and margaritas and great service!!!
Veal Molli was very good! Give it a try. Service was exceptional.
Everything was fantastic. Will definitely be going here again. Mike was our waiter and was very knowledgeable about the wine selection and took care of us. Must finish with the cheesecake, it was incredible all around.
The food here never disappoints! Great service and a fun place. Be sure to have a drink in the bar after dinner too, the barkeeps are part of the experience.
The restaurant has great character for any occasion. The service was great and very knowledgeable. If you are seated in back you are surrounded by the wine selection for atmosphere and the wine selection is outstanding and the staff is very knowledgeable about the wines. The front area is great with the bar but the front windows open you to St Charles St ant seeing the Streetcars roll by gives you a great feel for New Orleans and it atmosphere. There is out door seating that offers you an open are experience to this great restaurant. The food is great , try the cheese and meat board it is always excellent. The Italian dishes are great as well as the veal and or chicken dishes. Never had a less than excellent meal. Deserts are great or have a drink after dinner on the out door seating and watch a streetcar go buy!!!
Food great. Wonderful service. Will definitely go back
Great place for Wine enthusiasts. Pick a wine from their shop or bring your own. Food and service are amazing.
Une bonne adresse pour tous les voyageurs
