Went here Saturday night (18th Feb) for a night out with friends and family. Restaurant was full (pleased that booked in advance) and atmosphere was great. Food good, service good and didn't wait too long between courses despite being busy. All in all a good experience and well recommended.

This restaurant has been here for many years. The food is very good and it is always busy. Well worth a visit if you have not been before. Not cheap mind but not expensive.

Visited on a Monday night. Restaurant is spread over 3 buildings on the main road down to the quayside. This makes it a little labyrinthian inside, but adds character. Restaurant was about 1/3 full on a Monday night at 2000 hrs. Welcome, and indeed service throughout, were particularly friendly and welcoming. Staff could not have been better in my opinion....

It is years since we were last here and we weren't disappointed. Good choice of food - mainly Italian with some twists. Starters- garlic bread with rosemary was yummy and a huge plate of potato skins which would have served 2/3 with aioli dips and sweet chilli Main- linguini with meatballs was a hit as was the creamy penne carbonara....

I used to come here back in the 80s and 90s. On a trip back to Newcastle we decided to pop in as there was a special Restraunt week menu on. The interior is a far cry from when we used to visit but it is still a very popular eating place. We went early about 6pm and the place... More

When we tried to get a table at the well-known steakhouse around the corner it was full, but they recommended we try the Marco Polo. So glad they did & we may well have got the better deal. Excellent food, wine & service in cosy surroundings. So nice to eat at an Italian restaurant that does something different from everywhere... More

Marco Polo is an Italian bistro that is celebrating its 42nd year of trading. We are an independent restaurant and locally owed. We offer a wide range of pizza/pasta and consider this to be our bread and butter. However we really come in to our own on the a la carte side of the menu. All our dishes are prepared on site and deliver extremely good value. The restaurant is always busy and has great atmosphere. We can cater for most requests. We take reservations and also hold a number of tables back for walk-in custom. So if you're passing pop in.
