We visited this restaurant many times. The vegetarian pizza is the best. They also make a great Caesar salad. We became friends with all of the staff. They are a great bunch of people.

It's a dump. No service and a very limited menu. Wouldn't waste my time here. Best feature ... A crappy pool table.

We had a hard time finding this restaurant until the last evening we were there. Great place with oven fired pizzas and Italian fare. Nice decor and great service. Wish we had found it sooner.

I was there with my husband and I eaten a delicious vegetarian pizza with so much vegetables, and parmigian cheese. My husband eaten linguine alle vongole…and he was very happy! The owner Marco is a nice man and his assistant Emanuele is so funny! I love this italian restaurant.

I love the pizza at this place. I am quite a pizza connoisseur and theirs is special. The service was always great as we made a habit of coming to eat there many evenings during our two week visit. I would highly recommend Marco Polo to anyone visiting Potrero.
