I have been to Marcello's several times now, and each visit was wonderful. The food is really good. My husband loves the pork cheeks, I love the chicken - which sounds pedestrian. It is not! Our friends love the seafood pasta and lasagna. The setting,...More

Beautiful restaurant, and staff - Amanda was great. I had the eggplant parm and loved it. We were early and were glad for that cause the restuarant really filled up within the hour we were there. Get there early!

If you are looking for delicious food Marcello’s is a great find in New Orleans. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Having eaten some great Louisiana food on our trip this Italian restaraunt offered some much needed Pasta. The Crab starter was perfect and...More

The restaurant presents itself as a wine bar and you get to pick your bottle. We were in the front room, and oddly only saw two people actually drinking wine. Others were having mixed drinks or beer. I have dietary limitations and asked for pasta...More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
