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.

I’m a little bit surprised that an Italian restaurant would have 1 pasta dish!? Great ambiance and wine list but the menu needs to be redone.

Great find on our last day in Denver. Super service and delicious food. Sitting outside is great people watching. Selection of Italian dishes is just right. Ask your server they know what is best to order.

As always, Osteria Marco was a thoroughly enjoyable and pleasant experience! The food here is always impeccable, the service is very attentive, and the bartenders are top-notch. It's not cheap but it's very much worth it when you can afford it!

A Sunday night visit complete with a wine and pizza. Dining mate choose a panini with potato salad side. Good was excellent, however wires got crossed and ended with green side salad. Otherwise excellent dining experience.

Mixed drinks were really awful! We had three different kinds and none of them were good. Appetizer Burrata was delicious. Our 3 meals were very hit and miss. The fusilli was TO DIE FOR! But the lamb meatballs were way over processed and mealy as well as so spicy they were inedible. Price was pretty outrageous for 3 people since some of the food was bad and the drinks were all terrible. The waiter was great though.

Osteria was just as expected. Great Food, somewhat limited selection, but the quality made up for that. Superior Service from the waitstaff and managers. The host stand could take it down a few notches ... this isn't an exclusive NY Hot Spot. Great Ambiance, cool vibe and well decorated.

Great service and ambiance. The pizza was amazing. The soft drinks tasted off, I think they have an off-brand. The meatball sliders were a little dry and the Caesar salad didn’t have a ton of flavor but the pizza more than made up for it!

It was alright. The burrata was great but the artichoke was not worth it. Pasta was ok. Good sized portion. Maybe we should have gone with a pizza instead? Not sure i’ll find out cause Denver has so many great options and I don’t live there so I need to choose my meals wisely. Lovely service though.

The noise level made it impossible to talk. I had asked for a quiet table because one person was hearing impaired and while it was quiet for the first 15 minutes soon a huge boisterous Table was seated in our little alcove which made it very difficult to enjoy the meal.

I will start with the positives. The service was very good, the Chef’s choice meat and cheese plate we ordered for an appetizer was good and my wife enjoyed her muscles she ordered as her entree. Now the negatives, the Halibut I ordered was dry and had very little flavor. The restaurant was very hot inside, there was little to no air movement and I was quite uncomfortable.

Great cheese and meats, would recommend for an appetizer, however, the restaurant itself seems like an incomplete thought. Good concept with up-scale prices, but waiters in jeans, t-shirts and tennis shoes make a confusing statement. Overall wouldn't go again.

Amazing food and service. While waiting for our seat we were talking with the bar tenders and decided to dine with them as they were a friendly and lively crew who made some good wine recommendations as well as gave some tips on things to see while in Denver. The food was amazing and the place just has a great homey comfy feel. All in all one of the finest dining experiences of all time.

Once we were seated at our table the experience was great. Initially our encounter at the hostess stand was not as welcoming. I made the reservation for two tables so that our daughter and her friends could sit together and my husband and I could sit at another table. When we checked in, Matt took it upon himself to try and find a table that sat seven of us without asking me first. When he came back and told us what he done, I requested the two separate tables I originally booked. He looked at me and he said “I wouldn’t recommend that, it would be too difficult to change.” After I explained to him that I wasn’t the one that requested the change, he rolled his eyes and turned his back and walked away. We ended up sitting at the two tables per the original reservation. Food was great and our server Catherine was wonderful.

Decor seemed very dated and tired. Food was okay- burrata was yummy, bread with grill marks but cold? Mussels for an appetizer were decent and the mushroom fussili had no flavor. Not to mention the wine seemed overpriced. A bit disappointed with our experience.
