Marcello's Restaurant & Wine Bar
715 Saint Charles Ave
New Orleans, LA 70130
Marcello’s Restaurant & Wine Bar on St. Charles Avenue offers rustic Italian fare that stands out among the Creole-Italian restaurants of New Orleans. Marcello’s well-executed comfort foods find their way onto a menu of antipasti, contorni, zuppa and insalata, specialties, and entrees, with gems like the marsala pork cheek, which is slowly braised until it cuts like butter, and the tritone, a linguine dish with crabmeat, lobster, shrimp, mushrooms, and spinach, in a creamy sherry sauce. The restaurant is divided into a front dining room, dark-wood bar, and spacious back dining room lined with wine racks, which you can peruse to find the glass or bottle you’d like to indulge in during your meal.
