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.

Lovely family meal

We visited Marco Polo to celebrate the birthday of my mother in law. There was 7 of us including my two young children. The staff were very accommodating of the children and had a very good value children's menu (£4.95 for a main and pudding). All food was brought promptly to the table and was... read more

Food was amazing as always. Every time I visit Newcastle I come here for a meal. Staff are friendly, food is good. Hot fresh and always first class. Rabbit lasagne was out of this world. And not to be missed if it is on the menu when you visit! We were booked for 7pm. But we're early, about 6:10. Popped... More

First visit here for a number of years, but not disappointed. Service was very good and the food freshly prepared. Prices are also very reasonable for a city center restaurant.

Very nice independent restaurant, lovely atmosphere and a large menu of Italian dishes. We had the smoked chicken pasta and a 'potato' pizza which were both very nice and reasonably priced.

The Marco Polo is a restaurant that we used often when we lived in Newcastle many years ago and when we revisited last year when we really enjoyed the restaurant all over again. We ate here again one Friday lunchtime recently; we ate early so the restaurant was quiet but there was still a pleasant atmosphere / ambiance. We took... More

The restaurant could not have been more helpful from making the initial enquiry , to booking and organising the evening and the evening itself they made things stress free and a thoroughly enjoyable evening. I had the wild mushrooms to start and the... More

The chargrilled squid I had as a starter was charcoaled and bland. My pizza was too greasy, and simply not good enough for a place that has pizza's as one of its specialties. The coffee was not hot. A pity, since the restaurant itself is pleasant and service is friendly, while prices are decent.
