I've been a couple of times now and find this a great place to visit. It's quite intimate even though it is a larger than expected restaurant. It's very popular and I can see why. Great menu with lots of choice along with it being well priced. Staff are helpful and the food is delicious. Definitely worth a visit and... More

We had a family meal here recently and had a very enjoyable evening. The menu has a wide choice and the food is of a very high quality. The service was very good, efficient and helpful without being too intrusive. We would definitely recommend it.

A nice Italian restaurant with good service and a varied menu. Starters are excellent and the mains are as can be expected of a proper Italian restaurant. The atmosphere is nice for 2 or a bigger group

Jimmy very kindly provided me with a menu with 6 choices of starters and 7 of mains and 4 of desserts and I had expected that would give everyone the chance to chose... 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.
