Not bad

Marco polo's is nicely situated for shoppers to pop in for lunch, or for anyone to eat before hitting the town. It has a good menu although I have scored it lower as the option I chose, pork belly, was quite poor at a ridiculous price - too much belly and very little meat. However the rest of our groups stuck to the pizza & pasta options and all throughly enjoyed their meals - so perhaps a lesson that just because something sounds nice and is expensive doesn't mean you'll be satisfied! Good service, very nicely done out but the lager is very expensive even for town - £4 a pint! I do plan to go back and choose something a bit safer from the menu.

Luntime bargain

Sometimes if I am shopping in Newcastle or meeting a friend I want somewhere to go for lunch that is quick and easy. Marco Polo is an italian restaurant which fits the bill.

The interior is modern and not done out in the traditional style of many italian places. I think maybe they are trying to attract the business side of the market rather than families.

If you go at lunchtime the place always seems to be busy although they do have more seating upstairs. Partly this may be because they do a business lunch special which comes in at under £6 for either soup or garlic bread and pizza or pasta. Often it is cheaper to go for this choice than to buy a pasta or pizza on its own although there are a couple of restrictions of dishes that aren't included in the deal.

Staff are friendly and helpful and the place is great for a quick bite at lunchtime for a bargain price!
