Good food competitive pricing

We have been coming here for 20 + years. The food is always decent. Italian food is what they do best. They're good with coupons and the staff is very friendly. It can be a little pricey so if you can find a coupon online I would use one.

We went to Marco Polo for dinner. My wife had the lobster ravioli and I had the linguini and clams (white). The ravioli was under cooked and had to be sent back. The sauce on the linguini was not very good. The waitress was unattentive. It took us over 30 minutes just to pay our bill. I had to ask... More

Wow, another Friday nite with Belly Dancers! What an incredible group! If you've never or seldom been to a belly dancing venue at Marco Polo, you are missing a great time.. It's also good to support our local dance artists. They put a lot of time and effort into choreographing and dancing, and they are fun to watch. Some are... More

We went on a Thursday night and their special was lobster. Maybe it's because I'm from the midwest, but that lobster was some of the best and least expensive that I have ever had. The clam chowder was amazing, just the correct thickness with a jolt of clam flavor, heavenly. I wasn't sure when we walked in, I have to... More

Less than I was expecting. The food seemed like it was precooked and frozen, We did not like it at all. The entertainment was sub par very old and not likeable at all.

Marco Polo Restaurant has been around forever, but it's quality and value have been consistent. The prices are competitive with other Italian restaurants and their portions are enough for two meals, depending on what you order. The booths give privacy to your group, although there's usually a large banquet going on in one of the larger catering rooms. The service... More

Marco Polo consistently has great pasta dishes and I've had it many times. My favorite pasta dish is the Baked Ziti, tons of ricotta cheese and the best sauce in East hartford. If your looking for a great burger, this is the place, they use an awesome hard-roll bun that really makes the burger special.

Went to a large banquet function for a civic group. Appetizers were a decent pizza selection, very limp small egg rolls, prefab moxxarella sticks and an unknown item because it was never refilled. Salad consisted of plain lettuce in a glass bowl that didn't feed the entire table, had to be refilled on the first pass, with one dressing passed... More

Picked this place out of the internet, looked like a nice restaurant. We walked in and the hostess was very gracious. Sat us in the lounge which was very nice and as we looked at the menu the waitress came over and we placed our order. The appetizer plate was every thing we like on one order, very nice. we... More

Marco Polo has been a staple in East Hartford for at least 70 years. We go there almost every Tuesday for dinner. Great food reasonably priced - great management and staff.
