Pretty good

We've eaten here many times over the past 17 years. Large portions and good basic food. Go early on the weekends and expect to wait a bit. Kid friendly.

This restaurant has been here for many years. I would love to rate it higher, but I can't. A friend and I were here for lunch. For starters, the restaurant was absolutely freezing inside. By the time we were leaving (over an hour and a half later), the heat finally had kicked in. The food was meh. We started with... More

This place has been here forever and seems to be the default place to go for folks who just want a good old predictable, family-friendly atmosphere with good but unexciting cooking, primarily basic Italian fare. Service is perfunctory unless you're lucky enough to get a newly hired waiter/waitress---which we didn't, but observed at the next table.

The restaurant offers wide variety of menu items. The food is average and so is the pricing. The restaurant certainly needs a face lift. Last Saturday I sat is one of their booths and the seating was uncomfortable. The waiters and waitresses certainly represent the restaurant in a positive way.

Ordered shrimp scampi on lunch menu during lunch time, which lists as $14.95. Then I was charged $26 for this lunch dish. When I inquired about the reason, the girl who placed order said they charged dinner price for lunch on Sundays. There were total 6 shrimps in this dish, which is not even dinner portion at all. How could... More

The night started well - staff was friendly and the appetizer sampler platter was good. But the main dish was very dissapointing. I had the sausage sandwich, which I left half eaten. The flavors of the sauce and the sausages were at odds with each other, not very tasty. My friend described the marinara on his pasta as tasting like... More

Leveraged another writer's title....fits perfectly - reliable Italian. Torn between rating of average and very good but went with very good for the overall experience. Everyone was friendly from the hostess to the waiter. Everything was good though the toasted garlic cheese bread was WAY too garlic for my taste. Side salad to the huge lasagna special was a plus....

Location was convenient and food was good. Service was quick and price reasonable. They are interested in turning tables over so they make money and you are in and out without feeling too rushed.

Marco Polo has been around for awhile, but I was recently there with my family on New Years Eve. The food was what you would expect in terms of offering the standards. But, more important, they did a good job with those dishes. We took our young (and picky eating) children and everyone came out happy. I should also note... More
