Marcello's is an upscale Italian restaurant on St. Charles Avenue in the Central Business District, a short walk or streetcar ride from Canal Street. The decor and service were both outstanding. There are good street views from the front room, but the intriguing back room has tables that are separated by floor-to-ceiling wine racks filled with a wide selection of wines. There is no wine list. You select your bottle from the racks with the help of your waiter.

The food was equally outstanding. My wife had a classic spaghetti Bolognese and I tried a new-to-me veal dish, veal Palermo. Both were authentically southern Italian. So were the desserts, a chocolate mousse and a tiramisu. With cocktails and a glass of wine each, the total before tax and tip was about $115. A bargain for this quality.

Linguini with clams is gorgeous, and then I wrangle the meat out of those clam shells, and it is just as delicious as it looks, but This little lady is still hungry, because after all that work, it is an appetizer portion, even though we paid an fancy entree price. Their lemon dessert has a nice texture, but it is not tart enough. For the amount of money spent, our meal should have been large enough, and the lemon should have been more tart.

Ate here tonight with some friends. This is a well-decorated restaurant which is not all that loud (very unusual for New Orleans!). Three of us had eggplant dishes, and I had chicken parmigiana. The food was very good, though the chicken was not quite as good as the eggplant. Service was very attentive, and prices are reasonable. Bread was very good though not great.

We stopped in here to have a quick Bloody Mary and ended up staying for happy hour. Great atmosphere, good drinks and appetizers. Chad the bartender is awesome and makes a killer Bloody Mary.
