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 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.

This restaurant was the perfect place to meet an out-of-town visitor and sit outside for dinner on a lovely September evening! The menu offers a satisfying array of options - and the pizza I had was delicious. Would definitely recommend!

It came highly recommended by a colleague of mine and we were quite impressed with the food. Wine selections were comparable. The wait staff were extremely accommodating; they moved us to a quieter seating when we requested it. Overall experience was pleasant. We will be back.

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.

Dinner was fantastic! Food was great, our server Jo was fantastic! Could not of asked for anything better. Got placed in the smaller room by the stairs, and the noise was extremely loud, hard to talk with people at my table! Otherwise fantastic!

I’ve been here multiple times. Food and service was wonderful every time but this time. This time the food was excellent and service wasn’t bad, but you could tell the server was overwhelmed. Not his fault he did the best he could to juggle the crowd. Overall an excellent restaurant.

My wife and I swung by for dinner before catching a show at the Bellco Theater. Service was prompt and courteous. Food pricing felt odd as some things were crazy expensive while other seemed quite cheap.

My husband and I come here on dates almost every time we are in Denver. We love the food and wine list. This year for his birthday we brought all of our kids and my parents. Everything was delicious, the kids love the anchovies on the Caesar salad. Our waiter was great. Overall one of the best experiences we have ever had going out with our family.

Great night. Took another couple out to dinner at Osteria Marco. Great service, wonderful wine list with great recommendations from our server, house made burrata and house cured sulami. Entrees were all top notch. The rabbit was wonderful.

We were seated very quickly and service was good. However, food was mediocre at best. We had mussels as appetizer and it was hot and tasty. The 2 pasta main dishes were too salty and soaked in sauce. Expected more for the price.

My sister got the mussels, looked so yummy, which she said they were, definitely trying that the next time I go. Amazing how noisy it is but you can only hear your own party’s conversations.

We have enjoyed Osteria Marco many times. This time we went for Happy Hour before seeing a show at the Bull. The house white wine was an Italian wine. The waiter said it was like a Pinot Grigio. It was very refreshing. We also had a Caesar salad, the cheese pizza, eggplant paninis and the fresh burrata. The paninis also came with a side. I chose the arugula salad. Everything was delicious! The portions were full size for Happy Hour prices! We will definitely be back!

The food was wonderful, and our server Sarah was fantastic. We were visiting from out of town, and not only did she help us navigate the menu, but she also was patient and awesome when it came to recommendations on what to visit and answering questions about the Denver metro area. The food was a bit pricey, but considering the quality of dishes, server, and other employees it was absolutely worth it.

Caesar salad had no flavor. Artichoke had little “meat” to it. Pizza was good. Will stick to pizza.
