A word from Osteria Marco
Osteria Marco is a very social, artisan-style pizzeria in the heart of Larimer Square. The exposed brick dining room is lined with bottles from our exclusively Italian wine list, which features nearly one hundred labels priced under fifty dollars per bottle. We roast the lamb, pork and beef for our panini right in the dining room and craft the cheeses and charcuterie from or salumi bar in house. Osteria Marco has all the amenities of a fine-dining establishment--excellent service, beautiful food, fabulous surroundings--but priced for the more casual, social diner. Continued

  • "I come to Denver several times a year to visit my daughter at DU. We stumbled upon OM several months ago and were delighted with the food. Now, we have visited OM several times and it has not disappointed us ever! We ALL love it. BTW the three of us are: 1 vegetarian, one meat eater and one seafood/poultry only. So, something for everyone!"

  • "Myself and a group of friends came here for dinner. The ambiance is lovely (a very cool urban/classic restaurant). The severs are extremely attentive. The food is amazing and surprisingly affordable."

  • "Unusual menu for italian restaurant, no pasta dishes other than specialty items. Typical pasta dishes such as lasagna, spaghetti, etc. not offered. Pizza good. Wine list difficult to understand. Restaurant a little expensive and no ambience. Had great service from our server."

  • "We had great service and great food. Six people who all liked everything they got - it was great! The calamari was crispy and flavorful. The pizzas were big and yummy!"

  • "Loved Osteria Marco......service was great, quick (tkts to Comedy Works 1 block away) and suggestions were spot on......Lamb Meatballs were awe-inspiring. Have gone 2x now and cannot wait to go back and try other items on the menu! Among my handful of 'no question' places when it must be a winner!"

  • "I love Osteria Marco. However, the service on this date was less than stellar. We were there before the rush of lunchtime patrons came. I don't know why it took so long for us to get our food. I'm not blaming the kitchen. I think our waitress got distracted and didn't check on the food. She was waiting on tables around us and I noticed that they weren't getting checked on that frequently either. Fortunately there were others there to refill our water and tea glasses when needed (the second time around). My lunch companion had to wait a while to get a refill on her tea & ended up pouring her water into the remaining ice. The waitress came and refilled her tea into the water! She should have asked if she needed another glass."

  • "I've been here a few times over the last couple of years so I've tried a few items on the menu and everytime I walk away very happy and satisfied."

  • "I brought my son to dinner for his 3rd birthday because he loves pizza. He had a grand time, and everyone from the hostess to the servers was absolutely wonderful. The waiter (Ben) suggested a special plain cheese pizza (not on the menu) for my little guy. We ordered the burrata (sp?) and a house salad, both of which were big hits- my son loved the salad! The pizza was delicious and our leftovers were carefully packaged for us to enjoy at home. I will continue to recommend Osteria Marco for dining downtown. It's wonderful!"

  • "OM consistently delivers great food and quality drink. The bartenders are service oriented and mix creatively. My steak was delicious. Wine recommendation was excellent."

  • "We have been coming here for years, but were very disappointed in the food this time. There were no specials and the food was room temperature and very average in taste and presentation. The service was good and wine selections was very good. We will not be going back with so many other choices in the area."

  • "First time at Osterio Marco and it was good. We arrived before the evening crowd and enjoyed wonderful appetizers and dinner. In spite of the attempts to absorb sound the volume grew to become inconvenient. The food is wonderful. Our server Jo-Ann was attentive and informative. We had the Brussel Sprout-Bacon skewers with a Cheese/Salumi sampler followed by salads. The combination of tastes and textures were wonderful! Even with the loud volume we will definitely go back! The prices were reasonable, the value good, and they had a great wine list."

  • "Great food as always! Very noisy during dinner time (but that can always be a good sign too)."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Our table enjoyed two of your excellent pizzas, delicious lamb meatballs with polenta, succulent charcuterie, and tasty Caesar salads! My only tiny suggestion would be to add more than one of those delicious white anchovies to the Caesar salads."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Took some business associates here on Sunday night - they have a special roast pork dish only on Sundays that is unusual and delicious. We tried some of the meat and cheease appetizers also - quite good! The restaurant was busy, even late on a Sunday night. I like the Larimer St. location and imagine it would be nice to sit outside in the summer. Food and wine are affordable and excellent and service was also good."

  • "As a Japanese foodie, I was worried about foods in Denver. But this place serves delicious and healthy foods and I found them reasonably-priced. I'm not a big fan of very thick American pizza crust but this restaurant's is thin enough and tastes good (mildly sweet). I didn't know they don't charge for soda refills... I also enjoyed the vibrant atmosphere of the restaurant."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Osteria Marco is definitely a "destination location" in Denver. The food is rustic, natural and fabulous, the all-Italian wine list begs exploration, and the wait staff were tremendous (meaning prompt, informed and genial). Plan to dine at O.M. again very soon...."

  • "Love this place. The food was delicious and it is really cute with great ambiance. My husband and I will definitely go back again."

  • "The food was excellent especially the Caesar salad. The problem was the service. The server was not engaging at all , service was slow and it took 15 mins to get my check.The staff walks around like that they are the end all, not friendly at all.There was no music so you are left listening to people's conversations that sitting literally six inches away. As much as I liked the food , a restaurant that thinks so highly of itself , isn't for me."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "Since I only go for lunch, I can't comment on most of your categories. Don't think it would be especially kid-friendly and there is no view since downtown is quickly becoming downtown LA. Imagine the bar scene would be good for the younger generation after work. If the food is any barometer, I would expect the wine list to be excellent. I very much enjoyed my lunch and the service was excellent. Will definitely go again."

  • "The food is amazing. I love going here to just enjoy the event that is supposed to be eating and socializing with friends. The wines are so diverse and just pairing food with wine and coursing the meal out to enjoy the atmosphere, the service and the delicious food is divine."

  • "This is a great place to go for fun or a special occasion. The energy level is always great but the food is amazing."

  • "We have been here multiple times and always leave more than satisfied! The portions are large and so tasteful! We haven't had anything on the menu that we didn't like. If you have a chance ask to sit at Sydney's tables because she is the best server we've had in a very long time!"
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Excellent waiter and great food. Moderate prices. The wine list is 100% Italian and extensive. Fun, lively environment."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The vibe of the restaurant was awesome - great decor, younger crowd and lots of conversation. My husband and I started our meal with one meat and cheese selection, then shared the beet salad and fig pizza for our main course. The ingredients were fresh and well-balanced, and ample portion sizes. We finished with the chef's special dessert - even though we were stuffed - their take on strawberry shortcake (we think that it should be added to the permanent menu). Every element of the meal was enjoyable and extremely satisfying. The house red wine was worthy of ordering again, too. We will be going back."

  • "I've been there twice now. First time with the family, was fabulous, had to go back. Second time, with friends for late evening dinner and drinks. Fabulous again. Great Food, Wonderful Service. This will be a regular stop any time I'm in Denver."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "we probably ate too much, but it was all excellent. The meat/cheese appetizer was excellent as was the fig pizza - i know, sounds strange, but it was good. The only thing I would say that's not so good is the place was packed and noisy - not their fault (it's good afterall) but it was hard to make conversation. I guess that gave us time to focus on our dinner - have i mentioned it was great?"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Ate here for my birthday recently. Had been there before and absolutely love the food here. Only downside was that we ordered a cheese plate to split with 5 people, and ran out of bread for the plate, so we asked for some more bread for the rest of the cheese. When we got the bill they charged us for the extra bread. Really?? At a nice restaurant like this you'd think they'd give you a few extra pieces of bread rather than nickel and dime you for it. What a cheap policy, or at least a cheap waiter."

  • "Love Osteria Marco. We always eat there before attending shows at the DCPA. Ben is an awesome waiter, and mad sure we were done in time to make our curtain time. Great food, great service, great ambience, great location!"
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Our new favorite place to eat. The Fig pizza, mussels, and rabbit gnocchi are awesome along with the service. We took our server's recommendations for wine and food to try and were not disappointed. The wine list featured Italian wines in a range of prices. Great place for dates or to visit with any excuse. They even make sure of your timing in case you have a show. One thing I really like was that we never felt rushed to leave, instead enjoyed a nice long meal and great food. This place is a must try and we'll definitely be back soon."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "We really enjoyed our evening at Osteria Marco. From the lobster bisque to the mushroom pizza the food was very good. Our waiter asked if we were going anywhere after dinner. We told him we needed to be at the DCPA by 7:30, so he made sure we got there on time."

  • "We dined at Osterio Marco during Restaurant week and the place was hopping but we were seated right at our reservation time. I had the Suckling Pig and my wife had the Striped Bass. Both were delivered quickly and were worth dining out for. The pig was unique with an interesting flavor and the bass was breaded and deep fried. The wine by the glass was very reasonable priced. With the variety available on the menu this restaurant is worth a look as there is something for everyone."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "Food was great! Had the prosciutto pizza and lamb meatball pannini.....both excellent. The service was both attentive and knowledgeable. My only complaint would be that they pack people in. Unless you ask for a booth (which are few), you will likely have the table next you less than 2' away."

  • "We have been to Osteria Marco before and loved it but this time was beyond all expectation. We started with the Bruschetta which is always delicious and seasonal so it is always changing, this particular night we were treated with figs...oh how I love figs. I splurged a little and went with the "Pearfection" for my cocktail, it is an understatement to say it was pure bliss. For dinner, the Short Rib with Red Wine Risotto. The meal was luxurious and perfectly paired. In addition to the most divine meal I may have ever had, the staff were all exceptional. Thank you all for taking pride in what you do."
