Came for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it. We shared some bread and olives as we were warned hubby's main course would be 20 minutes in the making. The bread was two big chunks of foccacia so we asked for the varied bread selection they used to serve but sadly don't now. It was replaced for ciabatta which was preferable to... More

I highly recommend trying their twist on a cosmopolitan-their marcopolitain, it's amazing! So is the mushroom risotto. This restaurant has never failed to disappoint me and I would recommend it to anyone! The food is delicious and of a high standard but with a good price tag.

This is such a great place for a meal whether it's with friends, families, couples, lunchtimes, party times, romantic occasions or any time meals out. It is very popular so you may need to consider booking for weekends and holidays.

Lovely restaurant which my boyfriend and I visited, whilst in Newcastle. Food was gorgeous, enjoyed starters and mains. Quite pricey but worth the money as the service/food was good.

Stop off at marco's after afternoon hitting the shop for early dinner. The menu range was good with a lovely fix price set menu for two or three courses. Food was tasty and they had good range of wines from different regions of italy and the service was good aswell .What more can you ask for.

We ended up at Marco Polo's after another local restaurant messed up our booking - And I'm glad they did otherwise we wouldn't have ended up at Marco Polo's. The restaurant is lovely - Nice atmosphere. The food is amazing, we had the bread and olives to start and fillet steak for the main. It was cooked to perfection. It's... More

We visited for restaurant week. The food was lovely and we had a really enjoyable evening. The goats cheese salad in particular was lovely and I tried swordfish for the first time. Recommended by the waiter who was very friendly and helpful. Thanks, it was a good choice. Very juicy and the salad that accompanied it was delicious! Actually all... More

Marco Polo is an Italian bistro that is celebrating its 40th 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.
