Pizzeria
Marco’s Coal Fired started with the simple idea that passion makes great pizza. The authentic taste of Italy is served to you through the finest ingredients and traditional techniques of the Verace Pizza Napoletana (VPN). Only 00 flour, San Marzano tomatoes, all natural fior di latte or bufala mozzarella, fresh herbs and fresh, all natural, non-processed ingredients are acceptable. Marco's Coal Fired cooks in authentic, Italian hand built wood fired pizza ovens.
Come taste Marco's Coal Fired's efforts and see if we don’t have you dreaming of warm Neopolitian nights, no passport required!

Very lucky in Denver at last to have several great authentic pizza places from which to choose. Marco's always tops that list. A Valentine's Day promotion (over 4 days) was outstanding value-for-money though the normal menu is fairly priced too. But the promotion allowed us to try both a new appetizer and different pizzas, both of which are now favorites. Attentive service, steady but not rushed.

Good pizza and great service.

Too bad it is crazy loud due to the bad acoustics that has sound that's outta control even it is not crowded. The chairs at the tables are horrible. Weird, swivel rolling wood office chairs that are too low for tables and seriously uncomfortable. We wanted to have more drinks, but no one could bear staying any longer in those terrible chairs and that echoing din.

We're new to the neighborhood and stumbled into Marco's. The service and food was perfect. I'm a big fan of brick oven cooking. The pizzas and shells were fantastic. Once you've had a true brick oven pizza its hard to have anything else. We met the owner, who is warm and friendly. His staff were equally charming. We had 5 plus a 7 month old and all of us walked out glad we've found this place. Look forward to next week!

I LOVE this place but on Sat. the 19th they were a little off their game. I will go back but if I receive a pizza that seems soggy, I will complain. I was so taken aback and we were with others so you know how that keeps you from speaking up. Also, the Roasted Vegies salad was a bit "less than". New people in the kitchen? Too busy? Don't know but something was off. Pay attention, Mr. Marco, your pizza is usually fabulous!

We went to Marco's on a Saturday night, and it was definitely busy and loud. My primary complaint is that all of our pizzas were soggy in the middle — picking up a slice wasn't really feasible, so we had to use knives and forks. The flavors were good, but the pizzas weren't cooked to our liking. With so many great places for authentic pizza in Denver, I can't say Marco's is on my return list.

We really enjoyed our meal. The food options were amazing and paired with good wines and cocktails.

The restaurant seemed to really be on their toes about Gluten Free and preventing cross contamination for Celiac disease, yet my Celiac daughter got sick later that night, so we suspect she did get some gluten.

What an incredible evening of great company and delicious food. We were visiting our daughter who goes to University of Denver and we invited her friends and some of our friends kids who live in Denver so we had 13 people for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised that they have a whole area downstairs which felt like a private room since we were the only party downstairs. Amazing service by Cesar and delicious food.the gluten-free crust burrata pizza was absolutely amazing. The mushroom pizza was so good too. The limoncello wings were amazing and the salads were so fresh and so healthy. We would definitely come back. We had a great evening. Thank you.

Marco's Coal Fired Pizza is my favorite pizza restaurant in all of Denver. The pizza is surreally good. Thin crust, a perfect crust/cheese/sauce ratio, and spectacular flavor. Everything on the menu is reasonably priced and their happy hour menu is a steal. In the summertime, they have a great patio area out back that's fun to sit in. The folks at the bar are always really helpful and make incredible cocktails. I've always been impressed with the friendly service and helpful menu suggestions. I just cannot recommend this restaurant enough.
