11 of us went for a big birthday meal and the menu was really varied. Loved the non alcoholic cocktails and the panettone bread and butter pudding. Our pasta dishes were well thought through, tasty and filling with delicious flavours. The pizzas looked Devine as well. Well recommended.

Had a lovely meal at this restaurant on Friday. 2 courses for £10 can’t beat it. Good food and service.

The restaurant has a lovely convivial feel... More

My friends and I decided to try and get a table without booking and we were lucky enough to get one as it was busy inside at 8pm on a Saturday. The waitress that served us was really friendly, I didn't get her name otherwise I would personally mention her. We had some bread and olives to start which were... More

We had been meaning to try this place for a while - live round the corner - so were looking forward to the meal when we came in on a Saturday night. Firstly, the service was friendly enough, so no gripes there, but that's where the positives end unfortunately. Gin & Tonic served in a coke/lemonade glass wasn't a great... 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.
