A word from Marco's Coal Fired Pizza - Ballpark
We know from experience that there's nothing more satisfying than that first bite of a truly great pizza: the crunch and chew of the perfect crust, the sweetness of the sauce, the earthy aroma of basil and the salty taste of fresh mozzarella that lingers for just a moment on your tongue.

At Marco's we want to bring that feeling to you, which is why we've worked hard to bring you the best ingredients, like Antico Molino Caputo flour, San Marzano tomatoes from Italy and the freshest locally grown produce. Our pizza makers are trained and certified by the Associazione Pizzaiuoli Napolitano, and we bake our pizzas in handmade brick ovens from Naples.

For us, the reward is in the results. Taste our efforts and see if we don't have you dreaming of warm Neapolitan nights, no passport required.

  • "Service was slow and even though this is a pizza place it seemed that their chick dish was the most popular as every table around us was having it and we were the only people I noticed having pizza."

  • "Great Antipasto and Pizza is wonderful. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"

  • "There is NOT a better pizza place in Denver, except for the other Marco's Coal-fired pizza across town! This is one of the few internationally certified pizza restaurants and you'll know why after your first bite! They also serve lemoncello chicken wings which are also cooked in the coal-fired oven after being marinated for two days and then dredged in spices. You will enjoy everything on the menu. We went there for the hundredth time Saturday evening with family from out of town. Every plate on the table was clean when it left. Great Food, Great Service (Love you - Marco, our waiter), Great Location and free parking next door! It doesn't get better than this! Oh - reasonable prices, too!"

  • "I took my husband here for his birthday dinner. The service, food, drinks, and everything was amazing. Our server was excellent. They gave us a nutella pizza and two shots on the house. We would highly recommend this restaurant for a casual dinner or special occasion. "

  • "What more needs to be said. This was our first trip to Marco's. It was impressive. Very nice atmosphere. Outstanding service and great pizza. "
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "First time I ever encountered a pizza place that took reservations, but glad I got them. It was lively on a Thursday night. Great thin doughy crust with flavorful toppings. Just right for 2 to split a pizza and salad. "
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "We loved our dinner - pizza, wings and great beer. We also took our 2+ year old grandson. You must try the wings; the pistachio pizza is great but the Neapolitan and spicy version are out of this world. I wish we could replicate the crust. The pizza is the best we've found anywhere - there is a place that's close in Scottsdale, Arizona, but it is not as perfect as Marco's Coal Fired Pizza in downtown Denver. Highly recommended - you can't find better service or food. Thanks to the owners, but special thanks to Gina and Leo - they make the dinner service. "

  • "The coal fired oven is around 1000 degrees which makes for very fast service & pizzas. The toppings are fresh & inventive. The pizzas are absolutely delicious! Save room for the cannoli for dessert. Very affordable as well. Our server MacKenzie was friendly, efficient & attentive."

  • "We always go to Marco's before the baseball game, we love the food & people. Usually sit in the bar when it is the two of us but went for the patio with a group of 5:)"

  • "We got there a hour early, was very nice, the service, the ambience and the Pizza was amazing, we went with New York Pizza salad and bruschetta, I recommend this restaurant, and also the location is great! Good Food!"
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "We've been many times and this is a favorite place to take out of town guests. The pizza is the best and the drinks and service are top notch."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Marco's is a worthwhile walk from the 16th street Free Tram to this neighborhood gem of a Pizzeria. If you are a pizza fan Marco's will not disappoint since it is a great place to enjoy an evening meal with friends or family."

  • "I just love meatball sandwiches. I have tried meatballs images just about everywhere. And this place hits a good. I also had a Caprice a lemon salad Yummmy Or something like that Great Vino list And delicious Peroni What a great lunch"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "We made reservations to eat here on opening day before the game. With the crowds in the streets, I doubted our reservation could be honored. We were pleasantly surprised how fast we were seated and how quickly we got our tasty wings. Great hostess and nice waiter on a busy day."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Great location to start off a night downtown, or going to a Rockies game. The antipasta platter is my favorite in Denver. Great portion of meats and cheeses and the basalmic reduction and pickeld garlic take it over the top. Great selection of pizzas. I am not a meatball fan, but their meatballs are amazing, great pizza topping. Save room for a nutella pizza for dessert."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Get the wings! They are delicious every time! The pizzas are fantastic. We unfortunately got seated next to an army of small children but had an otherwise pleasant experience."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "We ate here because it is close to the VooDoo comedy club where we were headed. If I go back to Voodoo I will eat here again."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "My hubby and I are gluten free - at least we try to be 95% of the time - so when he suggested Marco's I was worried about what I would find in the GF options. Marco's has the best GF crust I have tried. It didn't even "taste GF"... which is a great thing. They can do any of their specialty pizza's on the crust and it's coal fired, the same way their "gluten filled" pizzas are, so you don't miss anything. I would recommend the Sicilian... it was amazing. Will be back here again soon!!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Do yourself this one favor...try the wings. You'll be ruined for all other wings, but totally worth it."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "This is my second time in Marco's . Love the Neapolitan style pizza. One of the waitresses mentioned that the pizzeria uses Italian flower. Which in my mind makes their pizza dough really close to what one gets in Naples. Very friendly staff. Excellent food. Walking distance from Downtown Denver. Great location for group dining."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Our server was attentive, the vegetables were fresh (especially the arugula) and the beer on tap was very good. I enjoy thin crust pizza like this, and the had a decent number of options. It IS on the small and noisy side, reservations on a weekend definitely recommended!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Excellent pizza as usual. Quality and consistency hallmarks of a good restaurant."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Marcos is a wonderful place to have that frist date, meet some friends and even make that business meeting go well! The location is near the ball park so you can have fun before and after the game. I must say that after you have one of their pizzas ..You will not be able to enjoy the fast food pizza places anymore, sorry but telling the truth."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "1st visit. Top notch. Almost perfect. Definitely perfect for date night, end of week late dinner... highly highly recommended."

  • "My beau and I came in on Feb 12th to celebrate V-Day early. We chose the special Amore menu, and were pleased with everything that hit the table. The service was great, we had someone check in with us rather frequently. We always enjoy eating at Marco's and will definitely be back soon!"

  • "Though to to talk. Cold when seated by the front door Pizza was goog"
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "I've been wanting to try this place and my cousin was in town with her boyfriend. It was a great casual place to grab pizza and a beer or wine. We all really enjoyed the pizza - wonderful crust and great options for toppings. The atmosphere was fun and energetic yet comfortable enough to have a conversation and hear everyone in the group. Since we were catching up with family we needed a little extra time to order. After we told the waitress that we needed more time, it was hard to get her attention again and felt service was a little lacking. Definitely go back again and give them another try!"
    Dined on 10/19/2013
  • "We have been eating here since it opened and they are consistently one of our favorites. MUST eat the meatball sliders, lemoncello and rosemary chicken wings, the toscana pizza and nutella pizza."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "Our waiter (and his sister) who happened to be working downstairs tonight were absolutely great. Service was spot on even with the huge crowd they had tonight. Pizza and wings were excellent as always. The only thing missing is a great blue cheese dressing for those wings!"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "With food cooked at 1,000 degrees the time from sitting to eating 3 courses is less than 2 martinis, this fast paced feeling could easily be construed as rushed, but the time the staff takes to stagger and talk with its guests keeps the atmosphere relaxed. Great custom cocktails pair well with the house recommendations. Amazing service, everyone is a valued patron when they walk in the door."

  • "A wonderful find, fabulous food, great scene, really nice staff."

  • "My family stumbled into Marco’s several years ago by accident on the first night they were open. We live in Boulder and I had always been disappointed with pizza in the Denver/Boulder area but I was surprised that it rivaled Pizzeria Paradiso; my all-time fav (DC) for quality. Since then there have been lots of good pizza showing up notably Basta, & da Lupo in Boulder (or Locale if you are a stuck-up poser) but none are quite as good Marco’s; it’s the crust The menu has changed a bit since the last time we visited; I miss the tricolore salad. We will definitely be back, it’s worth the drive."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "Read a bunch of positive reviews and was not disappointed. Great pizza. Great atmosphere."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "The only reason I don't give them 5 stars for food is the kitchen frequently seems rushed and you end up with some pizza toppings clustered. (i.e. It's not uncommon to have a slice with one or no toppings on it. Sliced onions occasionally bunched in one spot.) The quality of ingredients and flavors are exceptional!"
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "The best pizza in Denver hands down. I had a build your own with sweet Italian sausage, meatball, and hot cappacola ham, it was wonderful. What makes this pizza is the crust and the quality toppings. They also serve a Nutella dessert pizza that is unique and delicious."
    Dined on 11/25/2013
  • "Great pizza. Our waiter was fast and very nice. The size of the portions was just right. Great neighborhood restaurant."
    Dined on 12/4/2013
  • "After being pushed repeatedly by the waiter to order more food than we wanted (and than we ended up needing), we quickly received our salad and pizzas. Both were quite tasty. Their house white wine was also quite tasty. But the 90's rock that was blaring made conversation difficult and was too much!!"
