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.

Last minute plan for dinner. Accommodated us as a party of 3 even though there was only two top tables available.
Great service. Great food. Just loud bit not so much that we couldnt talk.

I had the roasted chicken over the green beans and mashed potatoes. The chicken was dry and pretty bland. Laying the chicken over the mashed potatoes makes it impossible to get to all the meat without using your hands. But then you get mashed potatoes all over your hands. That presentation of that dish makes me roll my eyes everytime I see it at a restaurant. It also covers the green beans in mashed potatoes, and makes the potatoes really runny from the beans and chicken juices. It may look nice, but it trashes the flavors and textures of each part of the meal. I won’t order that dish again.

It has been about 5 years since I have been to Osteria Marco. What a pleasant surprise. The food and service were excellent. We order the Rabbit and suckling pig ( only on Sunday) for main courses. Both were tender, juicy and spectacular! I am so pleased to see the high standards are being maintained. Highly recommend this Denver treasure.

We came here to celebrate our anniversary. The hosts seems disorganized and when we came to ask if our table was ready they said they would come back down and find us.. which didn’t happen. I am very familiar with open table and you should be using your text features. The bartender was not super friendly. My boyfriend and I were looking at the wine list and noticed both of our menus were different so we asked which one was correct. He grabbed mine and walked away without a word. Our server Nolan gave us incredible service and he saved the night from a service stand point. The food and wine were delicious!

We were very pleasantly surprised to find this Italian Osteria fitting in most every way. The menu drinks and service were all very very good. The only negative was first being seated in the corner by the kitchen door, which I abhor. They moved us to a nice quiet booth. While the lamb shank and sausage pasta dish were rich and meaty. The mushroom rigatoni was sorely lacking in MUSHROOMS and rich cream sauce. The sauce was bland and creamy, but no flavor. The drinks were outstanding and burrata was awesome with the grilled bread. Service was great. Will go back!

Greeted by smiling hosts. Seated at the reservation time without any additional wait. Server promptly arrived at table and watered and provided time to look at the menu. Drink order taken promptly and delivered promptly. Water and cocktails never empty, always refilled and delicious. Friendly waitstaff, outstanding food. I'd want the burrata appetizer every day of my life.

We had never been to Osteria Marco before and we were very happy we ended up here. The atmosphere was wonderful and the food was exceptional. Our waitress Tracy was great. She was very flexible in separating our bill. She did it with a smile and was very accommodating to our requests. We will be happy to return.

Good location and solid atmosphere for casual dinner with friends, but the food was just so-so. Seems like they were catering to a slightly less sophisticated crowd. Also, pizza was totally undercooked in the center. I'd go back here if I was meeting up with people and they picked the place, but I wouldn't book it myself again. On the plus side, the outdoor patio was nice for sitting out on Larimer Street and people watching.

The food was amazing. We had the lamb meatballs and the cioppino, awesome! I used to work for a 5 star chef and these dishes were right up there with his. The service was good, but I always seem to get servers that assume because I don't drink alcohol, their tip will be bad or something to that effect. Because service starts great and then I order water and it goes down after that. The atmosphere was good, lively and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. Food was delivered in a very timely manner and was amazing! Kudos to Osteria Marco! Side note try the house made cheese!!
