Celebrated my wife's birthday with excellent wine and was served great food. We had the calamari for an appetizer and it seemed to disappear before my eyes - everyone got a couple of bites and all were pleased with the taste. The ambiance was nice - met lots of friends and will eat there again, soon! Service was good and... More

Last Thursday I was looking for a place for lunch after seeing my doctor for a check up. Since the doctor said I was in great shape and that I didn't have to return for a year I decided to treat myself to a special lunch. Then I remembered my last visit to Marcello's Wine Market Café and decided to... More

Such an easy way to make a reservation...online. Arrived at 5:45 for a 6 seating and was quickly accommodated. Had a nice quiet table near the front window. We were not rushed to order. We started with cocktails followed by an artichoke appetizer and warm bread. Afterwards we ordered. The lasagna was authentic Italian and my dinner date enjoyed the... More

I hadn't eaten at Marcello's in years and when we dined there I wondered why I had waited that long. The food was beautifully prepared and superb! I ate there again within a few weeks I enjoyed it so much the first time. I highly recommend Marcello's for authentic Italian food.

My husband has tried spaghetti from every Italian restaurant in Lafayette, and this is the only place he has found that he loves. The bread was also supper delish! Although my chicken parmesan was too hot, which caused the batter to separate from the chicken, it was still full of flavor.

Went for lunch with a group. Good service - very good food. If you are on a tight schedule either go early or go when you have time. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal!

Just took my wife's mom to lunch for Mothers Day and the food was outstanding. Owned and operated by an Italian who I suspect used his Moms recipes. The bartender made an excellent bloody Mary. I had sausage and peppers that was very good but my wife eggs crepe was OUTSTANDING. Next time we come back to Lafayette we will... More

We arrived approximately 20 minutes early but were seated promptly. The waitress was extremely knowledgeable and obviously very well trained. I had the "Milo", I believe it was called, which was a picata with artichoke hearts. I opted for eggplant and it was, without question, the best picata I've ever tasted, and picata is one of my standards. The wine... More
