After a hard work day my wife and I were lucky to have our local client recommend Marcello's. It's not large, and on a week day it was packed with locals. We got the last table. The menu was interesting and reasonable, was was the wine list. My wife had the pork cheeks and I ordered the Palermo, a special.... More

We were staying just down the road at the Staybridge and had picked this up from the internet. A lucky pick that saw us having an excellent dinner. It’s exactly the sort of Italian place which you hope would open up wherever you live, so you could become regulars. There’s a shortish menu allowing the kitchen to concentrate on doing... More

Always enjoy going to Marcello's. The food, wine, and staff all combine to make the experience memorable. Soups are always good, especially the white bean pancetta. Eggplant parm is awesome. The Bolognese with an added meatball is primo. If you're lucky you'll get Trish as your server.

Marcellos has been a favorite place of mine for years. Food has been well prepared and service good. Attended a birthday party for 8, food well below acceptable standards, service was deplorable. From the placing of cocktails to delivery of meals. We felt that we were abandoned at times. Hopefully this was an aberration.

This is the kind of place that the locals smile about. It's romantic to them. It's great Italian cuisine to them. And, I'm really happy for them that it is. Because Lafayette was rated as one of the happiest cities in all of North America, and restaurants like Marcello's must be why. This restaurant is heavy on the cream. It's... More

The atmosphere is great and the food is delicious. Chicken parm and the stuffed bell pepper soup are the best. Fantastic service, outstanding wine selection

We were given a gift certificate to this restaurant. We decided that the perfect time to go was for my wife's birthday. Great choice ! We had a quiet table, and super service ! The waitress was also a sommelier-we were able to sample several wines before we made a selection. The wife had the Pork Cheeks marsala, and I... More

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
