Classic Italian restaurant with many years in the neighborhood – a long-standing favorite – Especially like the baked clams, gnocchi, salads and ricotta cheesecake

Food and service was great but i was not ready for the treat this place had for us. When i looked at this place it said $35 and under a plate so i was like ok not bad once i get there for mothers day turns out there is a fix price for $55 dollars per person and supposedly $35 for children under 12 THEY CHARGED ALL US US $55 Even my little sister. Nowhere did it say it was going to be a fixed menu with a fixed price that was not ok we were expecting to pay $300 for 6 people but not $500 we still left a good tip because the service was great at it was not their fault their sneaky boss wanted to take advantage of the occasion. With this said i am never going there again i dont mind paying for good food but i don’t like to be tricked so upset it ruined mothers day for me !!!

Marco Polo never disappoints - it's been our neighborhood go-to restaurant for years! My personal dinner menu favorites - veal meatballs, and agnolotti, and a peach martini. The staff is also fantastic - very welcoming and always in a great mood!

Absolutely delicious! Three of us were able to enjoy an array of their tasty, authentic Italian food. The specials were unique (and yummy) as were the staples. Flavorful appetizers kicked it off but the lobster ravioli, beat gnocchi and a spicy cavatelli dish (all in the photos) could not be beat! This along with impeccable service, made it a 5 star experience.

Food was good. I was somewhat annoyed over the manager - server. He is a know it all and has no clue how to read the room. On and on about his past accomplishments. Seriously you should never tell a woman how much sugar she is consuming in her cocktail

Each course was wonderful. Salad, portobello over polenta and pasta with seafood. Even the bread with olivata was excellent. Nice wine list as well, though I wish they had more Italian options by the glass.

We've been going to Marco Polo for many years, and we've always had excellent food and service. The restaurant adds innovative dishes to its line-up of Italian specialties. They also have an excellent wine list and great cocktails. It's a great place for special occasions and just a quiet week night meal too.

Our waiter, Antonio was friendly and helpful in helping us decide what to order. The appetizers, beet salad and an eggplant terrine was fresh and delicious. Drinks were good sized and well done. Entrees were excellent! Special Halibut was moist and not overwhelmed with sauce, frutta di mare with spaghetti was also fresh and light but great tasting!!
We will make this place a regular!!!

Inspite of all the COVID restrictions, on Sunday 11/22/2020, Marco Polo was open for business for indoor dining, and set up up for outdoor dining as well. My aunt and I chose to dine indoors to celebrate my birthday. Our caesar salads were delicious, and the pasta entrees were very well done! Since my aunt usually orders something not on the menu, she was graciously accommodated by our server. For a late Sunday afternoon, the dining room was not crowded at all. Speaking to one of the employees, they are taking bookings for Thanksgiving, so definitely do not let the Corona keep you away from a real neighborhood treasure!

Marco Polo has been in operation for about forty years--certain features have changed to keep up with the times--the physical décor for example. It is now light and airy, lifting the spirits. The food has some new accents, interesting variations on traditional preparations; it is always, however, very good. Some of the mainstays, such as the pasta cooked in red wine are as satisfying as ever. We've been dining here since the beginning and have always found it to be an enjoyable experience. The service is terrific as well.

The restaurant had a cute outdoor seating area, nice tables with table cloths and it was enclosed from the sidewalk traffic. We ordered shrimp cocktail and the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella as an app. Both were ok, shrimp was a bit over cooked. Fish dinner dishes were both good. Side portions (veggies, potatoes) were sparse. Server gave us a minute to look over the menu then deserted us for 15 minutes, had to ask another server to take our order.

MARCO POLO - such a great classic spot . The host is so nice . The food was very good but portions shrunk but their prices did not . They have a great outdoor set up - I was try to stick to outside for now / the inside was not so great . I like that the host took every ones temperature.

Every visit to Marco Polo they NEVER disappoint and this visit was another great example. They've even raised the bar on preparing and accommodating their guests for social distancing while still being able to enjoy their meal and professionalism of their staff. Thank you for NEVER Disappointing me!

Never had a bad meal here but I brought a friend who said she did not like the food when she last came 5 years prior.
Well, if she could have licked her 3 course meal plates clean she would have!! Outstanding meal.
I think my friend has had a complete change of heart when it comes to the quality of Marco Polo’s food.
When asked how she’d rate the food from 1-10 she gave it a 20. I had to agree. ( service was excellent as well)
