During Phase 1 of this reopening period. Marcello's will be open Wednesday-Sunday for 5 pm dinner service, and open for Lunch on Fridays beginning at 11:30. We will be closed on Monday and Tuesday. We look forward to having you join us again.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
