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 had an amazing dinner here. The food was so yummy and was of top quality. I ordered a risotto starter; it was my first time trying risotto and it was so nice, full of flavors and made me fall in love with risotto. For my main I ordered lamb and it was so tender and again, full of flavors.... More

This is a busy place, but well appointed and with prompt and efficient service. The food was great! The mixed antipasto Misto was outstanding. Plenty of food, well presented and very tasty. Mains also good as was the expresso afterwards. The price - very reasonable for a city centre hotel. Go there, you will enjoy it!

This was a really great restaurant with lovely food and friendly staff. Our meal was excellent and the service was very organised and quite quick even though they were very busy on a Saturday night

We had a table for two and actually arrived a few minutes late which was fine upon arrival. Service was fast and friendly. The starters were hot and very tasty. The mains arrived shortly after our starters, however, my fiance thought her risotto was a little bland in flavour. I ordered the Marinara pizza and was impressed with the selection... More

I've visited Marco Polo a number of times over the last 7 or 8 years as and when I come to Newcastle to visit my uncle or to watch a match. We almost always head here. The food is superb, the staff are friendly and attentive and the atmosphere is excellent. The quality of the food is exceptional and you... More

Me and my partner love food and we got a recommendation from friends to go to Marco Polo. We both love Italians and the food was ideal beautifully prepared and it came with a smile. The only thing was the staff were over tentative so every 5 minutes different members off staff would check up on us some people love... More

We visited here as a group of four on a Friday night. The restaurant was fairly empty and lacked atmosphere from the moment we arrived, although we were booked in quite early. After looking at the menu (and not understanding how the starters were the same price as the mains) I ordered the wild boar salami to start and pesto... More
