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.

Our usual pre-trip tradition to have dinner here. We will always love you. Did the capa ricotta changes since you opened?

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.

The tables downstairs in the back aren't great, especially when I requested patio or a booth in my reservation (nobody acknowledged this), but other than that a great experience.

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.

Extremely loud and service was not good. We asked for a booth so we could participate in the happy hour specials. Hostess said they were held for large parties. When we left they were still available 🤨

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.

Everything was tasty although the ceasar salad could have used more dressing and cheese. It was a bit like eating a bowl of chopped romaine. House red was a good value.

We had a fantastic date night at Osteria Marco. Cocktails were good, food was delicious, and the service was incredible. The best food we've had in Denver so far! The arugula salad was simple and delicious and the lamb meatballs were AMAZING! Great prices for the quality of food.

We ate here late one evening after catching a flight into Denver. The hostess was very accommodating and let us keep our bags (we had 3 total, carry-on size bags) with her so they didn't take up room at our table. The food was good - I had the meat and cheese plate and at the server's recommendation we sub'd in the Burrata for another cheese (definitely try their burrata, either by itself or with the meat and cheese plate, it was soooo good) which was the right call. For my main course I had the Luca's Wild Mushroom Fasilli which I think may be one of the richest dishes I've ever had. It was delicious, but I found I couldn't eat all of it because it was just too rich - a LOT of butter and cream. Overall, the restaurant had a nice ambiance, the food was good, and the service was great. Will definitely come back here again on our next trip to Denver.

This was a “meh” experience. We showed up early for our reservation and were turned away although it appeared to be half full.

We returned were seated downstairs and we watched our server table hop without putting orders in. A diet soda took a while to arrive. The Margherita pizza was a soggy mess with what amounted to stewed tomatoes a ton of salty cheese and strands of basil. The Rotisserie chicken was bland and the arugula salad was a pile of greens a couple of scrapes of Parmesan with olive oil. Beyond that food was nondescript and the service was merely adequate served with an insincere smile.

The lamb was nothing but fat and not edible. The halibut was so dry and so over cooked it made it difficult to enjoy.

There was a street food event that looked like it was rained out, so the restaurant was pretty crowded. The food was great as usual, but we felt pretty rushed by the waitress. She asked if we were done with our plate when there was food still on it. She also gave us the check early as well. I’m definitely always cognizant of people waiting and I don’t just hang around at tables when I know they’re busy. However we were hardly talking and I felt hurried while eating. We ordered a bottle of wine and spent a good amount of money on our tab, so they made out well for the short time we were there!

The food was great but the environment and service was lacking due to a broken AC (I can only assume due to the warmth) and a rushed, impersonal server.
