Marcello's of New Orleans
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 restaurateur. 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 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.

We reserved at the last minute and was given a very nice table. Our server was most helpful in helping us to choose the wine. The antipasta was very good and the Veal dishes also very good. Next time we visit NOLA, we will have diner at this restaurant.
Great place! Love the restaurant within the wine store concept.
The veal was to die for! Delicious. Great service very fast and attentive. My husband has the Seafood Tritone dish it was really good too. We were there after they closed and never felt rushed.
The wine selection is the best. I love the concept of choosing your own wine at a reasonable price and then they serve it to you.
What an awesome experience for me and my new husband! We were seated in a window view table with complimentary champagne. The food was fantastic. The service was even better! Love this place! Would recommend!!
Loved this restaurant! If you are in New Orleans, don’t miss it!
I would highly recommend Marcello's Restaurant. Excellent all the way around.
First off, our server Christian was fantastic. Your server can really make or break your dining experience and Christian was great from start to finish. He never rushed us, was very helpful with all our questions and was very friendly.
The food was delicious and servings were really nice sized portions, so much so my wife and I both brought some home. We also really liked being able to pick out our own bottle of wine which was very unique.
The ambiance was great, all throughout the restaurant and bar area everyone seemed to be having a great time with each other and all the servers and bartenders were engaged with the patrons. It looked as if a lot of locals go here regularly with how everyone interacted with each other. All in all it was a great dining experience and I would definitely go back again.
GREAT service, food, ambiance, and wine list. Had a wonderful mid afternoon meal with my family, one of whom is a pescaterian and was just as pleased as her grandparents with the choice.
Our server was helpful and kind and overall a true pleasure.
Good and drinks were magnificent!!!!
Always a good go to place for business lunch downtown.
Food was excellent and prices reasonable. Definitely a winner.
Very good Italian food and I am from a city known for good Italian food. I thoroughly enjoyed the Veal Palermo and the rest of my dinner party enjoyed their entrees as well. We shared the fried calamari as an appetizer which was great and the sauces were well received. My Pork Cheek Old Fashioned was very well done.
Great ambiance, food perfect! Knowledgeable waitstaff, selection of wines notable.
Excellent wine selection. Food was fantastic
It was a nice night. Food was good but overall a little salty. Wine was perfect and server was very sweet all night.
Exceptional food. EXCEPTIONAL! Why don’t I frequent this restaurant more often!?!
Service was pretty stellar too. Great atmosphere, fresh food, better wine offerings at super prices. Can’t wait to return!
Our service and food was fantastic, absolutely no complaints. The problem came with the drinks. They use tiny little old fashioned glasses for Martini’s. That’s fine if the price goes along with the size. But for $13 We expected a decent sized Martini glass and a good drink. I had the Pear Martini and The quality was so-so, I could have gotten it anywhere. No rimming, a small piece of candied Ginger would have been nice instead of a tiny lemon. The drink was made with a ginger syrup but all you could taste was lemon. I’m sure it seems odd me going in and on about a drink. But what really got me is that the quality of the food was so good, the drinks should match that. Come on Marcello’s, you can do better.
Good and creative Italian food with a well trained/knowledgeable staff. Has a great wine selection and a tradition of very good craft cocktails.
Great food and atmosphere
Everything was great and Chris picked out a great wine for us!
Great service and fun space. Have had great food here before but this time the lasagna was average. Great wine selection.
Food and service was outstanding. Never disappoints !!
Looking forward tp going back after Mardi Gras for the full experience. Our server was amazing. Not recalling his name and he was extraordinary. We were there Sat. Feb15. GIve him a raise please as he is deserving. My husband and I enjoyed every minute of our experience.
Marcello's service, food, and experience are always excellent. Highly recommend!!
Love this place!
Romantic, great food and service. Excellent wine choices. Good location in CBD
Third year in a row I came for my birthday, enjoyed myself as always. Rose’ was great, complementary champagne and dessert did surprise me. Loved every minute of it.
We had a delicious dinner with great wine options offered and a superb group of knowledgeable staff who kept us comfortable and well fed
Outstanding on every level. Food, service and if you love wine put this on your list.
Best Italian food inNew Orleans!
It was great
I love the staff and personal attention they ALL give. VERY pleasant place to relax and of course the food is remarkable. Derrik, the manager personally took care of us and made us feel like family!
We were visiting our son who is a student at Tulane and all he wanted was good Italian. It was a Sunday night and some of the places that we had received recos for we’re closed. We found Marcellos on Yelp and figured we’d give it a try, although my expectations weren’t high that we’d find good Italian in NOLA. It was one of the best meals I’ve had in a while- everything was amazing! And the bread- soft, savory and warm- we must’ve asked for at least 3 refills! It was also quiet and away from all the hubbub which we loved after being in it for a couple of days. I wanted a glass of Malbec which they only had by the bottle. The waiter suggested a couple of similar wines and brought me a taste of each, which were both delicious. Would highly recommend if you want a break from typical NOLA places/food.
Great Italian food great service good and reasonable priced wine selection
Our server Jennifer was delightful and attentive. Spaced courses properly and kept wine in our glasses. Food was excellent and hot (temp). Fresh bread from oven a nice touch.
Food and service was top notch. (Veal Parm and Eggplant Parm). We will definitely return. Highly recommended.
Delicious meal and excellent service. We will definitely be coming back in the future!
