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

Always enjoy eating here. The dinning room is always full of laughter and chatter. I'm not a big carb person but there's still plenty of options for me Of course, wine list is exceptional

We had friends come in to town to celebrate the successful end of a work contract. We were their guests, so I can't say much as to the price but none of us were very overwhelmed. Good thing we ordered appetizers because the service was so slow. The restaurant was quite crowded though so that may have been why. We... More

Hands down, this is the best restaurant in Lafayette. Had a wonderful meal and experience last week for our 36 th anniversary. Hubby had the steak and I had the tri pasta. The mussels were to die far and we capped off the night with the best tiramasu I have ever had. You will not be disappointed!
