Description: Marco Polo is an Italian bistro that is celebrating its 40th year of trading. We are an independent restaurant and locally owed. We offer a wide range of pizza/pasta and consider this to be our bread and butter. However we really come in to our own on the a la carte side of the menu. All our dishes are prepared on site and deliver extremely good value. The restaurant is always busy and has great atmosphere. We can cater for most requests. We take reservations and also hold a number of tables back for walk-in custom. So if you're passing pop in.

I found my meal here to be one of the poorest I have had when eating out in a long time. The starter was very lame. Mushroom bruschetta consisted of barely lukewarm bread with cold, sloppy ricotta cheese on top. The mushrooms tasted decent because they had been cooked with garlic but the dish overall was not worth the money.... More

By far the best pizza I have ever had and the dessert was to die for. My pizza was the marinara and dessert was an almond and pear tart wit the best almond ice cream.

Italian restaurants come and go in Newcastle, and have done for many years, however Marco Polo seems as if it has been here for ever. The menu is always a bit different from the normal, the staff always pleasant, and always has a nice atmosphere. Recently took an American friend ( who sometimes can be hard to please) he had...

We go here quite a bit so I thought it time to say a few appreciative words. The staff are attentive and helpful: the welcome is warm, the service impeccable. Food is invariably first-class. There's a good range of drinks, too. Well worth a visit.

The service is always top class, we're always well looked after, time after time, on my most recent visit the bar tender even made a cocktail that wasn't on the list anymore, as it's been a firm...
