The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The dining area is surrounded by racks of wine. We got the calamari appetizer and it was cooked perfectly. The house salad had chunks of fried eggplant instead of croutons - yummy! I had the Linguini Tritone. I am not a fan of cream sauces, but everything else about this dish made up for... More

I loved the ambiance of the quaint italian restaurant, you are transformed from the shopping strip entrance to Tuscany. Wonderful wine list and the antipasto was impressive! I didn't enjoy my entree the alfredo sauce was a miss but the desserts all made up for it as i tried everything due to be in a large group. Very nice ambiance... More

First of all, my new husband and I have always loved Marcello's for their wine selection. We've driven past the Wine Market Cafe' hundreds of times and vowed to try it one day. Well, we finally had our day! Walking into the restaurant, we were quite pleased with the atmosphere. It's a dual wine cellar and restaurant, with very intimately... More

I've only eaten here once & the spaghetti with meatballs is pretty decent. Others will tell you how great the food is but we usually go there to buy wine because they have a really good selection.

The grease stains on the stainless in the kitchen tells me that cleanliness is not all that important and makes me think they have not cleaned the... More

We had an hour wait, not happy about that but in the scope of things it was worth the wait. The food was outstanding and the wait staff was world class. Expect a wait, but worth it!

Fortunate for our group we arrived early enough to get the last 6 person table. From that point onward for the next two hours we dined on outstanding dishes. The veal marsala was outstanding as was the grilled tuna and both dishes were enough to take home some food. Service was personal and professional and the appetizers, entrée, desert, sazeracs,...
