I have a patron of Marcello's since the earliest days in Lafayette. The food and service are always spot-on and consistently good. The wine availability, for Lafayette, is unsurpassed. Gene Todaro, the owner, is an institution who always acknowledges and appreciates his customers.

If you want Great food, great service, great wine, great prices, go to Marcello's in Lafayette or New Orleans. Really, really good fresh Italia food. My personal favorite is the veal. Hundreds of very slightly marked up wine that is well curated and good.

Casual, slacks and shirt or nice jeans with dress shirt. Not shorts and flip flops, though. I went from a conference and had a dress and flats on.
