Have been here a couple of times for the lunch set menu. I know you get what you pay for and the offer is cheap but it could do with bigger portion sizes. Apart from this it has excellent atmosphere and great speedy quality service!!

Dean street car park is just across the road, it's not 24hour but open pretty late. It's also free to park there after 5pm on weekdays!

Description
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.
