REAL DEAL ITAILIAN

Their wine selection is second to none, the food is equally as good. just know it is a little pricey, but you do pay for excellence. If your looking for Italian food in Lafayette, this is one of the best places to get it !!!

We've found this to be our favorite in a town that's known for good, mostly Cajun and creole, cuisine. This location is primarily a restaurant, and the wine is sold as if in their retail location with a small ($10) corkage fee. It's a dark, richly appointed restaurant which lends to it's charm and atmosphere. There's a full service bar... More

I had some time to kill for lunch and just wound up here due to the location. I ordered the French dip Sandwich. It came with a small but very good salad and warm toasted bread. The sandwich was good and filling and the Aus Jus sauce was excellent. There was a large selection of wine. It seemed to be... More

We go to Lafayette, LA frequently and have always enjoyed Marcellos until this visit!! We had arranged to go for dinner with some friends and were looking forward to it a great deal. The service was horribly slow. When they brought our meals, my wife's chicken parmesan was burnt on the underside. Maybe they thought that she wouldn't taste it?... More

Went there for a University of Louisiana Lafayette graduation party. 8 in our group. It was packed, not a single seat or table open but we did have reservations, sat at the well stocked bar and then sat down. While waiting, I struck up a conversation with a older gentleman who looked like a diner. I spoke to him about... More

This was my first experience at Marcello's. We had our company Christmas party there. The service was wonderful, very thorough and nice, my wine glass was never empty!! Marcello's is great if you like trendy places, I personally did not like the food, very bland and the shrimp still had the tail on it. The dessert was great, but that... More

Nice classy, quiet place. You sit near the racks of wine for sale and the staff does not rush you. Food was great, definitely not a chain restaurant. I had the "Lamb Ragu" and it was great. Wifey had some shrimp and alfredo pasta and loved it. We will be back.

Maybe all the hype about this place raised my expectations above what they could fulfill. The service was lackadaisical, the food was overpriced, cold, and very small portions. The only saving grace was the stuffed mushroom appetizer.

Everything there is great, from traditional Italian, to the steaks, fish and lamb dishes. We have never been disappointed. We love that we can buy our wine there, pay a small corkage fee and enjoy fine wine at a reasonable price. Great service too.
