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.

On a recent three night visit to Newcastle we were recommended this restaurant. We each chose different side dishes as starters as this worked out a really good way of getting good value. The Restaurant was very busy , but the service was not too slow.

Visited Thursday for lunch. Absolutely fantastic food. Had the rosemary garlic bread for starter then pizzas followed by tiramisu and panna cotta. The dough for the pizzas was ultra light and tasted amazing, the toppings were original and delicious. Desserts were huge and really tasty. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. We'll be back for sure! Definitely recommended.

The food was tasty and the atmosphere was nice, waiting staff could be a little more friendly and knowledgeable on the menu and food. When we ordered starters our server didn't inform us well on portion sizes so we were almost unable to finish off everything! Regardless, the food was enjoyable and the prices was good. I would recommend this... More
