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.

Food, ambience, and service was great! We had Amanda and she was very knowledgeable about the menu and she was great helping us decide what to get! My husband is still talking about the cannoli he got for dessert!

Excellent old school Italian in an intimate environment- it feels like sitting between wine racks in a high-end wine shop. My wife enjoyed perusing the aisles and finding the perfect wine with the assistance of the staff. Lovely veal parmigiana and a very hearty portion! Amanda, our server was great. Would visit again!

Excellent food, with a wonderful and attentive server. Kitchen a little slow- which wasn’t a problem on this occasion but could be if time constrained.

This was our first time at Marcello's and won't be out last. The food was delicious and loved that we were able to choose our wine right off the rack. Jennifer, our server, was wonderful. She was so friendly and knowledgeable about the menu, specials, wines and gave us time to relax without rushing us through courses. We will definitely ask for her on our return visit.

Outstanding Mother's Day experience! Food and service were on point, manager assisted us in picking out one of the best bottles of wine we've ever had and the atmosphere was just perfect, busy but not hectic! Marcello's is always a top choice of ours and this experience was even better than ever!

I have dined here over and over again as I live in the "hood" and will continue to as long as you keep up what you're doing here. Exceptional Italian cuisine close to my Sicilian ancestors prepared and served in a grand fashion.

My friend and I had a lovely time here. The server, Mike, was wonderful. His drink suggestions were on point. The food was a little delayed, but that was ok because it was still very delicious. It was piping hot when it reached our table. They were very considerate of the delay too. All in all an excellent experience.

The location was nice and sitting either indoors or outdoors is a good experience. To be able to select your own wine from their selection makes the experience complete. Their meatballs and sauce for appetizer was amazing and their seafood pasta dish is one of the best I ever ate.

Every member in our party was very happy with their selections. Yhe turtle soup is s good as any to be found in NOLA. The house salad was the perfect serving and the Gulf Fish of the Day (Speckled Trout) was seasoned just right. I would gladly recommend the restaurant to anyone that ask me.

It was very cold in the restaurant. We usually love this place but this time all the food was off. The calimari was raw on some of the pieces, also the meatballs were awful and way too spicy. The dishes of artichoke were tiny and overpriced. The fish special was a light fish but with heavy sauce and angel hair pasta so totally out of balance.
We really were disappointed and even though this place used to be good it isn’t anymore. Back to Vincent’s!

Marcello’s is always awesome: we went there during a tornado watch so the loudest ppl in the restaurant were myself and my friend. But, as always, the food was perfect, wine selection is awesome as you can walk around and choose your own bottle, and service was excellent. Not enough good things to say about Marcello’s.
