Restaurant description

Marco’s New York Italian Leicester blends laid-back American style with classic Italian flavours. In true New York style, pizza and pasta dishes are joined by American favourites on the hearty menu.

Inspiration from Marco’s Italian heritage and his love of New York merge on the menu, seeing pasta and risotto sit alongside burgers and steaks. Try one of the flavour-packed pizzas, or tuck into the New York rack of ribs with barbecue sauce. Other irresistible mains include the American barbecue burger with Monterey Jack cheese, crispy bacon and hickory sauce, or a classic hot dog served in a brioche roll with garlic tomato salsa and crispy onions. Fish dishes aren’t neglected, with the likes of oven-roasted organic salmon with gnocchi, peas, rocket and basil on the menu.

Desserts at Marco’s Leicester continue the indulgent blend of Italian and American flavours. Sample a New York cheesecake with forest berries or tackle the decadent chocolate sundae, served with warm brownies, Swiss dark chocolate, white chocolate and honeycomb ice creams, and chocolate sauce.

Marco’s Italian sits in the Mercure Hotel in the town centre. Leicester Train Station is just a 5-minute walk away.

    The interior design was great, the hickory baby back ribs were very good and would highly recommend. However, the shrimp and crab penne was cold on arrival, which was disappointing. I had a booking at 6:30 and only one staff member was available which was not great as I had to walk around to find someone.

    I had booked a table for a special meal to tell my friends they were going to be my Bridesmaids - I asked for a side table which they provided. They put up the balloons my sister had left with them during the day and the gentleman asked my sister if she needed any support bringing things in from the car. He was very helpful, was at our service for the whole evening - he stayed on top of our drinks as well as food orders were taken and delivered superbly. I could not have asked for anything more - the food was delicious! We had a 3 course meal with a glass of bubbly and every dish was tasty - they also catered to individual needs. I would definitely dine here again and book a large party booking as the service from the beginning to the end was amazing and no faults at all.

    That Salmon fillet was to die for! Great service from the gentlemen working that night and my girlfriend loved the setting.

    Food was lovely but it was freezing cold, so much so it was uncomfortable

    Shocking!!!!! Poor service, dropped multiple things on our table. Selection on the menu I thought would of been better. Quality of food, my wife shrimp and crab pasta was very wet with minimum flavour. She left 75% of her dish. Cost, my goodness £85+ for poor quality and service. I mentioned this to our waiter at the time and he didn’t seem interested in our comments. I will not be going back the worst part of it, it was our 5th wedding anniversary meal that was ruined by the experience.

    Booked on line and asked what occasion it was. Advised it was my wife’s birthday but why ask for that information? Nothing was said or done. Starters took approx 30 minutes to arrive bearing in mind the restaurant was only 40% full. Having 2 children aged 8 and 5 in our party of 6 you can imagine the stress with them quite hungry and asking where their food was. Main courses arrived 20 minutes after the main. Both my wife and daughter ordered the Spicy Shrimp and Crab Penne. My daughter had 3 shrimps and my wife had 5 with a total lack of crab. Bearing in mind the dish cost £18-95 each so really not value for money. I advised the waiter who told me he’d tell the chef and the waiter came back with the reply that the chef was adamant he cooked 12 (6 each I presume) I told him we were adamant that this wasn’t the case and to tell him again. Again came back with the reply that he’s adamant about the quantity he cooked. Nothing done so virtually no customer satisfaction there. So wrong in my opinion. When we left the waiter reduced our bill which sort of softened our angry and annoyance at the lack of customer service shown. Overall “Bella Italia” food served and cooked by amateur staff.
