Bristol really busy because of nearby harbour festival but we managed to find this place without making a booking. Great location, great welcome, nice decor - food not too bad either! Both had pizza's which were OK, other food going out to fellow diners looked good - some pasta dishes seemed huge! Service friendly & efficient. Would go back when... More

Staying round the corner and not wanting to go into the centre of Bristol on a Friday night, this restaurant was so handy. Nice atmosphere, good service and well cooked food. Can't say fairer than that.

Happened upon this restaurant by chance as it was close to our hotel. We were made so welcome by Martina and she made us feel as if we had known her for years. The atmosphere was excellent and the pizzas large and full. If we had not been leaving the. next day we would certainly have returned.

We were in Bristol for a Torbay Express steam train trip to Kingswear/Dartmouth (also a must do). We decided as we had not been away much recently to splash out a bit on food. Having sampled another Italian earlier we decided on Marco's for the evening as it was closer to our accommodation and we didn't want a long walk... More

Have walked past this restaurant many times, kicking myself for not trying it sooner. Cosy, friendly, well informed and extremely helpful staff. The food was perfect, even offered something that was not on the menu but suggested by the waitress after chatting to us about our likes and dislikes. I am going back this week.

Been here before in a previous incarnation but it's a in a lovely location and we had a great window seat! The waitresses were fantastic and friendly. The food was terrific if overwhelming but manageable! Really worth trying if you are in Bristol.

A number of others reflect the lovely atmosphere of this little restaurant and I can only endorse what they have to say. I had a lovely two course meal + glass of wine for £9.95 which really felt like a great deal. I had bruschetta (lovely and garlicky) followed by tortellini - also very good. I had a delicious tiramisu... More

Walking back to our hotel we thought we would pop in for some olives and a glass of vino. Instead we had a cheeseboard for starters, a shared pizza, a lovely bottle of Frascati, ice cream with amaretto and then the lovely waitress gave us a complimentary limoncello. Thoroughly recommended!

I have been to Marco's twice now and enjoyed it both times. First time I had the lobster ravioli which was lovely and the second time canelloni with ricotta and spinach. The canelloni was lovely, piping hot and obviously freshly cooked. Much better than the meals I had at the neighbouring Hilton hotel which was nice but overpriced. Thoroughly recommended.

We had a very enjoyable evening at this friendly restaurant which serves authentic Italian food including Sardinian specialities. The mainly Italian staff are friendly and helpful, the service efficient, food is good. We had the fixed price menu, £9.95 including two courses and a glass of house wine - could not be faulted. As that was so cheap, we could... More
