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.

My husband and I went for an evening out together and had a very good time and thought the food was fabulous with outstanding service (attentive, informative, never overly so). We have very different tastes, so it's a bonus for us when we find a place we both like so much. We would order everything again, but are looking forward to trying new things too. With my husband I would likely go at a quieter time than Sat. 6:30, as it was a little loud and tables for two are pretty close, but we did exchange some pleasantries with our neighbors, which was nice, too. With another couple or a group I don't think it would even register. We are looking forward to our next visit!

A decent menu for an osteria, but not completely up to Frank's usual standards in his better restaurants.

The food at Osteria Marco is delicious! It's in the lively neighborhood of Larimer Square and the decor is very cool. I was extremely disappointed with the level of service though. I'm not sure what was going on, maybe the staff were overwhelmed that night. We were a party of 7, which I fully recognize can be difficult to manage, but our waitstaff would disappear in the middle of an order; brought back the wrong bottle of wine; put the wrong items in front of people, and then not explain what the dish was so we couldn't figure out who it was actually for; and in general seemed very inconvenienced by every little thing. I found it very surprising. From the get go, they seemed inconvenienced by our presence, which I feel like is unfair. If you're at capacity for large groups, you shouldn't have let us make a reservation.

We were celebrating my boyfriends moms 65th birthday - and I had made a note about it in my OpenTable reservation. Two minutes after we sat down, our waiter brought us glasses of Prosecco to kick off her birthday celebration! Dessert had a candle in it, and they gave us a Good Customer discount on our bill.

My boyfriends NY Strip was “one of the best meals he’s had ever.” And it was SO GOOD. Their artichoke is phenomenal, as well as their paninis. Perfectly crispy bread and not greasy at all.

We will 100% be back!

We've been wanting to try Osteria Marco for a while based on the reviews, but we were disappointed. The pizza was so undercooked that the crust was a wet sloppy mess. The service was ok, she was speedy but distracted, for the price point we expect a little better. The charcuterie was actually pretty good, the rabbit gnudi dish was just so so, the gnudi was undercooked. Cocktails were good but slow coming. Th ambiance was different than I expected, it was pretty loud in there and very dark.

Great food and attentive service. We unfortunately were seated at a two top next to the private room which is open on that side separated by a wall of wine bottles. The group in the private room was very loud, combining with clamor from a full restaurant to make the noise level unbearable, spoiling our evening out.

We were very impressed with everything we had to eat at Osteria Marco. Started with the meat & cheese charcuterie board. All items are made in house. Also had the house made olives. Delightful. Next had the grilled artichoke hearts. We don't get these often enough so I really enjoyed these. Finished up with sharing the ribeye. Delicious all around and the service was wonderful!!

Overall a great food selection! We really enjoyed the mussels especially. The wild mushroom fusilli is a must if you want pasta and the Carne pizza hits the spot if you like meat but don’t want to be super full.

Birthday dinner and we were happy to get a patio table. The food was solid, service was pretty much terrible. We never got a water refill, had to flag her down to send back a soggy pizza and have it cooked more. The side salad, meant to be prior to meal, came with everything.

Waitress never came to see how the meal was, we had to wave her down for wine and the pizza issue.
Never got to even ask for parm and pepper for the pizza and pasta dish as she didn’t actually bring the food to the table. I watched her taking of other servers in the window while ignoring her tables overall. Really disappointed.

I went to Osteria Marcoe based on other reviews. I had the house bruschetta which was soft white bread - untoasted, with what tasted like barbecue sauce spread on it, goat cheese, very salty ham and corn. The soft white bread, barbecue sauce and overly salty ham just ruined it. I also had a Caesar salad which lacked any flavor. The place is also pretty noisy and my friend and I had to shout to hear each other. I won't be going back.

The food was fabulous. We were seated close to a speaker and had to request that the music be turned down. The 2 top tables are so close that we could hear the neighbors on both sides of us. Also, it was a little cool.

I've been to Osteria Marco many times in the past and thought the food was great. This time however, the food did not live up to their past standards. We ordered the Burrata which usually comes with fresh of the grill bread. This time the bread was cold and we received small end pieces. A real disappointment. The salad we ordered was just "OK". The kale had long stems and just not very tasty.
Our waiter did an ok job.

The restaurant was very very hot with little airflow or air conditioning. The cheese and wine was excellent but the main course was kind of meh. We hurried to eat our dinner and leave because it was so hot that we could not get comfortable and enjoy the meal or conversation.
