My co-worker and I were given Marcello's as a dinner recommendation, good choice. Reserve your table because I doubt a 'walk in' would be able to be seated; this place is busy. You can select your own bottle of wine from a vast selection covering all price ranges; if you know wine, you'll be in love. The service was exceptional... More

I found myself looking for a early lunch after a meeting in Lafayette and was less than a mile from Marcello’s Wine Market Café. As soon as I sat down, my waiter, Keith, brought me delicious crispy Italian bread with olive oil and vinegar. The bread was warm and the oil was very tasty. After taking a short look at... More

We made last minute reservations for the one night we were in town. We thought we would enjoy a nice evening based on Tripadvisor reviews however, our evening turned out to be a marvelous experience! Far better than what we imagined! We were warmly greeted by Georgio and enjoyed our conversation about Italy, wines etc. Georgio selected a wonderful bottle... More

Romantic atmosphere, excellent service, and exceptional food are traits of Marcello's. I ordered the simple fare of spaghetti and meatballs. I was hungry so I ordered the dinner portion. The marina rustica sauce and meatballs were amazing. I wish I could have finished the meal! Our server was exceptional in helping us pick out a wine too. Saw many groups... More

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
