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.

Wow! Fabulously fabulous! Amazing dinner and spot on service! Our server Christian was fun and professional! Love perusing the wines in the rack. Great ambience! Go!.
Always Excellent. One of my favorites when I’m in town for business
The food and service was incredible! Highly recommend, will return!
Not as good as the Lafayette restaurant.
Service and meal were excellent! The table they sat us at was in the bar area so it was pretty noisy even though it was only 5PM. The main dining room may not be that way. Food was definitely worth dealing with the noise.
I love the intimacy of Marcello's. It's fun to pick a bottle of wine from the back and the staff is very knowledgable about the bottles.
Delicious food! The chef salad was the best! Wonderful service - Justin is an excellent server -so attentive, helpful and friendly!
I was in Italy in May and ate Lasagna at several different areas and none was better than Marcello's and a few were not as good. Very Very good. Same for the Veal. You can't beat Marcellos' for the quality, quantity and price. The same goes for their wine selection.
Server was exceptionally warm and fun, short ,thin redhead, I apologize not knowing her name...food was good. Need to make their own pasta.
Everything about our time we spent here was wonderful!! Will be highly recommended!
Wonderful place! Excellent wine cellar, food is awesome. The service was excellent. Love this place
Service was absolutely great but know the food was astoundingly great. One of the best if not the best Italian I have ever had. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. Hats off to Marcello’s.
The food was awesome...from the bread to the calamari to the lasagna. Loved the idea of taking wine off the rack and drinking great wine at retail prices. Our favorite dining experience in NO.
Great food in the warehouse district of NOLA. Service was very nice. Ambience was fun - sit at a window or among the wine racks. No wine menu you just pick what you want off the racks of wine which change periodically. Food is great. A change from the usual fare in NOLA.
I was a little surprised when my food was brought out that they didn't have one of the substitutions that I requested and just brought me the side that I didn't want. I would expect a little more from a restaurant of this level. Otherwise, the food was good.
We enjoyed every bite. The bottomless white wine bucket drink special was fun and a good deal.
The food was delicious and our waiter was accommodating. We also enjoyed having a window table.
The service was fantastic; the food absolutely dreamy and the atmosphere fun and lively but not too noisy. We ordered a variety of appetizers, entrees and desserts and every single dish was super. I will return.
Great food. Amazing wine selection. Our server Mike was very attentive.
Food with flavor for days!
We were 4 couples on a weekend trip to New Orleans from Florida. After local New Orleans specialities we needed a break and went Italian. It was awesome in every way...food, selection, quality , service. It is a great restaurant and experience.
Food was awesome. Huge selection of wines at reasonable prices. Great service.
A great go to local restaurant with good food and service.
Lovely lunch at Marcello's. I arrived late, so it was really quiet. Service was excellent, Food was very tasty... I had the speciality pasta with shrimp was extraordinary. Highly recommended!
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.
This was one of the best meals we had during our recent trip to New Orleans. Food, service and ambiance was outstanding! Will definitely be back during my next visit!
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.
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.
