For the mission in GTA San Andreas, see Saint Mark's Bistro.

Marco's Bistro is an Italian restaurant located in Saint Mark's, Portland Island, Liberty City. It is featured in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto Advance, briefly in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and in the opening scene of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.


The restaurant was most likely a shared turf by the Leone and the Forelli families. Although it appears to be named after Marco Forelli suggesting that the official owners (until at least 1992) are in fact the Forellis.


The timeline of the restaurant as indicated in the games where it is featured is as follows:

  • In GTA Vice City, Marco's Bistro's interior is actually in the Ocean View Hotel.
  • In GTA Advance, Marco's Bistro appears a bit different than in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories due to the Game Boy Advance's limitations. The parking entrance is on the south side, and the back alley's ground seems to be made of dirt.
  • In GTA San Andreas, Marco's Bistro has a small back lot with dumpsters and small trees and a wall around it, but in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, this back lot is absent and is replaced by a large empty area behind the building.
  • Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories is the only game in the 3D Universe that does not feature the Marco's Bistro, either in game or cutscenes.
  • A picture of Carlo Gambino can be seen during "An Old Friend" in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
  • Rockstar has jokingly described the cannoli at Marco's Bistro as "stale as hell".[1]
