    Delicious food, reasonable prices, clean restroom, and close to UC Berkeley. Still you have to pay for parking.

    You can customize your order! The food is reasonably priced, they're open late, the pasta is delicious and they have an extremely friendly staff. I will be back for sure.

    The owners and staff are super friendly. They have a great lunch special from 11 to 3. I love their chicken breast sandwich and their Penne Bolognese entré.

    Marco pollo is good but I'm disappointed that it doesn't include chicken. They had a prime chance to make a pun and instead just misspell "polo."
