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.

Nice change from the usual
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!
Outstanding service, outstanding food, great beer list with local beers from Abita. We will spread the word and will be back! Great experience!!
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.
Wonderful staff and amazing food! We will definitely be back!
Daniel was amazing, thanks for an amazing meal and special attention to us.
Great food and service ! I would definitely return!!!
So glad you enjoyed your visit! We hope to see you soon!
Street parking only or paid parking lot. Outdoor seating in nice weather. Clean restaurant, good food, great service, full bar.
Loved the food, our server Jennifer was great. A good experience.
Marcello's was recommended to our group by our hotel
concierge. I would continue to recommend this Italian restaurant.
We had an excellent meal with all of our party agreeing their food was very good. The meal was made all the better by our waiter who was very knowledgeable, very helpful but also non-intrusive.
In town for a couple days. By chance we chose a great Sicilian restaurant. We know our southern Italian and this is it?
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.
We just love Marcello's. What's not to love: fantastic outdoor seating, great waitstaff, amazing food.....
The best part about us is the people that come to visit! Always a pleasure having you!
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.
Excellent food, service and experience. It’s a hidden gem in a very competitive market
The chef was amazing and came out to wish my friend happy birthday, then we ended up outside sabering champagne on St. Charles! So fun and so delicious!
Other than the too bright lighting all is great. Great staff. Great food in s simple menu. So much wine and no corkage. Thanks for the evening.
Went on a business dinner and a customer was able to purchase a bottle of wine to bring home. Nice casual dining experience
Marcello’s provided a wonderful dining experience. The food was creative and delicious as was the wine. The service was very good. We are from NYC and are tough food critics. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
The best Italian food in New Orleans with large wine selection and excellent service
It was so good, we made reservations again two days later.
Best of all was our waiter, Justin. Made us feel like we were friends, gave us great recommendations, and was an outstanding server. It makes a world of difference!
Wonderful restaurant! Great service and outstanding food! Love it!!!
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.
Okay restaurant nothing special
Excellent service and food for the money was excellent. Would go back there. Close to Canal street where our hotel was so good location too. Nice quite neighborhood in other side of French Quarter.
Our waiter was very attentive and friendly, every dish we had was very good for no fuss Italian. Salads delicious with eggplant croutons. They were accommodating with gluten free preparation. Good for families.
This restaurant is a gem! I would definitely come back here again someday!
Amazing food in a relaxed atmosphere. Great indoor/outdoor options. Fun service. Creative dishes.
Superb lads fan and spaghetti. Great service, very nice front dining room with view of NO streetcar. We go to Marcellus for great Italian fate at a reasonable price. A standard for us.
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.
The clams are terrific! Fresh ingredients, wonderful recipes. Staff eager to please and very attentive.
Highly recommend! Our waitress was fantastic and the food and wine were amazing!
Had an early dinner while waiting for music at Lafayette square. the happy hour prices make Marcello's very affordable; the food and service were excellent!
