    Food was great, except for the angel hair pasta, to me it smelled like it was cooked in fish water. Very loud for some reason, you will not be able to have a normal conversation. Very pricy if you order wine. Service was great though.

    We LOVE it here! The wine selection is great and you get to “shop” their wine wall for your bottle. Such a fun experience! All of the pastas are excellent (the linguine tritone is a must). We always come back!

    Our food was actually very good. We would have preferred to see a wine list rather than be told we could get up and go to a back wall in the restaurant to pick up bottle of wine. It felt a little bit awkward walking around other peoples tables as they were eating. Our server was friendly enough, but not terribly attentive. We will give it another shot at some point.

    First things first. Our waiter, Seth, as always was fantastic. Give this man a raise! Second, our food was amazing. Had the grilled shrimp salad and tomato basil soup. Both were excellent, however the soup was outstanding! Third, our bottle of house wine, Chardonnay was very pleasant and well priced. Fourth, the ambience is small and wonderful. Keep up the good work Marcello’s!! Loved every minute.

    Marcello's is in a quaint old house in old town Covington. It is a very comfortable restaurant serving classic Italian fare. The food is excellently prepared and service is very nice. Prices are reasonable and many dishes offer the option of being prepared with either eggplant, chicken, or veal. The wine selection is also excellent with a third or more of the reds being interesting Italian wines. Wine prices are also reasonable. Overall, a very relaxing and enjoyable dinner.

    We went on a Tuesday night to celebrate an anniversary. Ambiance was perfect, from lighting to music, to room setting. Service was amazing, as was the food. We started the crab cake Contessa, Caesar salads, braised short ribs, and cannelloni special. Everything was perfection. We also enjoyed “shopping” for wine and picking out a great selection. It was our first time visiting and certainly will not be our last!

    Authentic Sicilian food. Great service. Food arrived hot and was delicious. Our second time here brought friends from Nola who loved it also. Fried calamari outstanding. Lasagna had rave reviews from our guests. Huge wine selection and good bar drinks. I’d get reservations as limited seating.

    The food is delicious, every bite! The waiter was super but did seem a little distracted after about 1/3 the way through the meal. Which is why I had to make it a 4 instead of 5. But he was a very good waiter other than that.

    Veal Molli was delicious. Veal was flavorful, tender and practical melted in your taste buds. Angel hair could have used more lemon butter sauce. The salad was also outstanding. The appetizer board was delicious and did not fill me up so much I couldn’t eat dinner. Had a bottle of wine which was the perfect addition to the meal. All four of us in the party were very impressed and said we would definitely return.

    My husband and I went during Happy Hour where appetizers, cocktails and wine was half off. We got the Crabmeat Contessa, Sausage skillet, wine, and cocktail and split the Pork Cheek Marsala. All of the food was very good, great service, and sat in a room with the wine bottles, which was very quiet and quaint. We will definitely be going back!

    We dined at 6 pm on Friday evening, it was fairly quiet until later in the evening. Our waiter was not very attentive, we had to call him over to ask for drinks, which we received, but no offers were made to refill our glasses. The food, while tasty, was served without bread, without a vegetable and without a salad, and the portions were smaller than average. Not what we considered good value for the money.

    I really thought this would be a great place to reconnect with family. Boy was I wrong! I made a reservation for 4pm and family wasn't able to arrive until 4:30pm. In the meantime the restaurant management made a point to let us know that they had another reservation set for 6pm. I have never in 50 years been told I would have to vacate a table because of another reservation. Shame on them! I will never bother them again!
