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.

    My husband and I were really impressed with Marco's. We started off with a delicious salad and then split one of the New York style pizzas. It was the perfect amount of food and both items were delicious. There's a good drink selection as well. We'll be back!

    My wife and I have lived in Colorado for almost 5 years, having moved here from North Carolina. We have eated at Marco's Coal Fire Pizza several times and the Pizza, Salads, and Beverages have consistently been excellent. The Service is Superior as Well. Marco's Coal Fire Pizza easily rates as one of the top 2 or 3 Pizza Restaurants I have ever eaten at.

    2 adults, 3 year old & infant - felt like VIP's. Loved, loved the pizza (ordered the Sicilian); perfect crust, toppings and -- oh yummy, the cheese -- the wings were great as was dessert. best service ever from the manager/hostess (Gina) and the server (Leo). Will definitely return; frankly, cannot wait to go back. Could make this a go to restaurant at least 2-3X a week (if we lived in Denver). Sure wish we had one at home (Casper, WY).

    Our last trip to Denver was capped by a visit to Marco's...not only were we NOT disappointed, we were excited about our new find! The pizza and salad was excellent and the craft beer (although selection was a bit limited) was fantastic as well. The waitstaff (not just ours but others we observed around us) were not only knowledgable but also very friendly and outgoing! We will definitely return the next time we're in the Denver area.

    The wife and I were on vacation in Oklahoma and had heard of this place through friends and through tripadvisor. The staff there was awesome especially the bartender and our waiter Leo. We ordered the Brooklyn pizza and the pizza was good but not great which is the reason for the 4 stars. It was kind of disappointing after all of the hype.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!!

    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.

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.
