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

This restaurant has been around for YEARS and is very consistent and reliable. The atmosphere hasn't changed and it could use a good year 2000 update, but the good is prepared well and you get a good amount for your money.

This appeared to be a quaint local italian place we went to as a family. It had a typical red sauce italian menu, a lively bar scene and an attentive and friendly staff. However , Once we were eating somewhat tasty food we noticed large patches of mold on the ceiling tiles and the vents. We lost our appetite Immediately

After attending a nearby crafts show we went online to look for a good restaurant in the area, and were directed to Marco Polo. Not easy to spot and parking is around the back. But, once you are inside the dining experience is very special. The four of us shared some appetizers and soup. Best onion soup ever, lots of... More

Thgis is a red tomato sauce place that will satify the whole family. The Italian wedding soup is the best around, with lots of tiny meatballs floating in an exellent broth. The main courses range from pizza and meatball subs to excellent chicken and veal dishes. There's something for everyione.

It was a great pick for a late Saturday lunch @ 1 ish with six friends who all wanted something different. Monster-size appetizers were very good. I had my fresh salmon/ greek style salad re-engeered with an Alaskan honey-based sauce on the fly and it was very nice. Good bar and great server and value for money!!!! Lots of parking... More

This authentic Italian restaurant has been a favorite in my family for more than 20 years! When we want the best Italian food, we know that we can count on Marco Polo! If ever your are in Northern NJ, this restaurant will be worth your time.

If this restaurant was a plane it would be on auto-pilot, food and ambiance is ho-hum and the waiters who have been around for years seem annoyed that your placing an order with them is interrupting their day, Every time you go in the door you know what awaits you, you can do better for a night out.

And, they even have a full bar because, well, some people still actually have liquid business lunches. Alas, I digress. Great little place to eat, with more than a touch of 70's decor. It's somewhat dated on the inside, but the service is still great, the portions are wonderfully prepared (lunch, specifically), and the meals have character each their own.... More
