Oldie but goodie

Marco Polo Restaurant has been around forever, but it's quality and value have been consistent. The prices are competitive with other Italian restaurants and their portions are enough for two meals, depending on what you order. The booths give privacy to your group, although there's usually a... read more

Less than I was expecting. The food seemed like it was precooked and frozen, We did not like it at all. The entertainment was sub par very old and not likeable at all.

Marco Polo consistently has great pasta dishes and I've had it many times. My favorite pasta dish is the Baked Ziti, tons of ricotta cheese and the best sauce in East hartford. If your looking for a great burger, this is the place, they use an awesome hard-roll bun that really makes the burger special.

Went to a large banquet function for a civic group. Appetizers were a decent pizza selection, very limp small egg rolls, prefab moxxarella sticks and an unknown item because it was never refilled. Salad consisted of plain lettuce in a glass bowl that didn't feed the entire table, had to be refilled on the first pass, with one dressing passed... More

Picked this place out of the internet, looked like a nice restaurant. We walked in and the hostess was very gracious. Sat us in the lounge which was very nice and as we looked at the menu the waitress came over and we placed our order. The appetizer plate was every thing we like on one order, very nice. we... More

Marco Polo has been a staple in East Hartford for at least 70 years. We go there almost every Tuesday for dinner. Great food reasonably priced - great management and staff.

This icon has been around for many, many years, and it's not surprising why they have survived. The food is terrific, the staff is friendly and the prices are reasonable.

Although the Marco Polo has been in business forever, they're still a great place to go for a delicious Italian meal. They always have something going on in one of their banquet rooms so it's a busy spot. We had veal francaise which delicious and plentiful enough for leftovers. I had a wonderful, huge bowl of pasta ala vodka with... More

We held our class reunion at the Marco Polo Restaurant and I'm pleased to report that everything was top shelf. The staff was very professional. The food was terrific. Could not have asked for a better time.

Marco Polo has been around for longer than I have been alive. In it''s hayday, it was the place to go. We hadn't been there in years, but last night thought we would try it again. We are glad we did. It isn't white glove service, but the food & prices are the best anyplace. Lobster Bisque is the absolute... More
