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.

A brilliant meal, and the most excellent service from Loren. We usually have a few days in Newcastle just before Christmas, and shopping has to be finished so we can relax and enjoy new (to us) resturants and bars. Very fortunate that we found this one. The rooms on different levels were very full, but service was very quick and... More

Came here for a work team meal, there were about 16 of us and pretty much everyone enjoyed their food. Mine was really enjoyable, garlic bread to start which was good, then I had the smoked chicken pasta which was amazing. Finally I had a sort of chocolate platter for desert which was equally as good. They were excellent in... More

It is great when you find a place you would like to try and after doing a bit research on Trip Advisor you then find out the reviews were accurate and the restaurant was as described. That is what happened to us and we had a brilliant night out in the Marco Polo restaurant. We dined from the fixed price... More

We arrived as a table of 8 on a business evening meal. The staff were polite, efficient and freindly. The food was really enjoyable and very reasonabley priced. Marco Polo is a lovely restaurant with a great atmosphere.

I was at Marco Polo's yesterday for lunch with work colleagues. The service was excellent, (it is always difficult serving large groups) our waitress was very friendly and accommodating. I don't eat gluten or sugar and hadn't checked the restaurant before visiting to see what I could eat. The menu was clearly marked for gluten free options and you can... More

Visited this wonderful restaurant on 14/12/14 with my dad & girlfriend. We shared some garlic bread with spicy salami and tomato to start, it was delicious. I had the pizza with Tuscan fennel sausage, requito and green peppers, one of the very best pizzas I have had. Both my dad (roast chicken pasta) and my girlfriend (chicken Caesar salad) really...

Each time we visit Newcastle, we make sure we include a meal at Marco Polo. This excellent Italian restaurant is only a short walk from the Royal Station Hotel, where we always stay. The food here is consistently good and the staff are really friendly and helpful. The prices are reasonable for a city centre restaurant, and going by how... More

Wine was fantastic, food was amazing and the panna cotta was incredible! If you miss this place, you miss the Italian part of Newcastle. We'll come back! Mario from Switzerland
