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.

Always an excellent meal! They were very helpful accommodating a tight schedule so we could get to a show on time.

Excellent food! Very attentive service. If we weren't from out of town, we would become regulars and try many of their mani dishes, but the mushroom pizza and chicken panini were great!

My wife went to dinner before a concert Sunday night and had a less than ideal experience. The entire tables food came out incorrect. Total dinner time was about 2.5 hours. She said they seemed under staffed and overwhelmed by the Sunday night dinner rush. The food was average at best. Not up to the standard of the Larimer square restaurants.

Very chill and friendly staff, seated promptly after they let us know our table was being cleared. Great house made cheeses and yummy meats for our appetizer. I was concerned about portions but was informed by our nice server that I could get a half portion of the pasta dishes, which I did and the rigatoni with sausage was very good and just right size wise for me. My husband got the rabbit dish which was delicious. The wine selection was good. Service was good and everyone seemed to be enjoying their time at Osteria Marco.

This restaurant is such a hidden gem. I love all the brick inside and the overall feel of the restaurant. The food is always outstanding and the service is on point. Very happy with this Italian restaurant for lunch or dinner. YUM!!!

Love, love, love the food!! Did not like the table in the back next to a large table. Felt like I was in a corner and it was very loud.

Our dinner was quite lackluster. Lamb chops were tiny and the pasta they were on had zero flavor, the Caesar was cafeteria-esque, my husbands tilapia was super bland. Overall a bummer because we’ve had incredible meals here in the past.

The wait staff were friendly and helpful with suggestions, but it was a busy night and it sometimes took a while to get our server’s attention. But overall it was excellent service. The food was excellent too. We had the hurrays, artichoke, pizza, and halibut. All expertly prepared/cooked and with great flavors.

Sunday special is “Whole Suckling Pig,” but it was served pulled bbq style and not as advertised. Three people out of 5 at our table ordered it and were all disappointed. The dish focused more on the sides than the actual pork (bad sign), corn bread tasted store bought and was not worth the price. Best item on their menu is their wild mushroom fusilli

Honestly, this place is a hard pass for us. Pizza was subpar. Lamb chops came out so rare -- like frozen rare - they had to be sent back. When they came back, they were so bland that they had no flavor. Tasted like seasoning hadn't come near them. Oh and 2 tiny chops for $36. LOL. Server was disinterested at best - empty beverage never refilled. Skip.

Osteria Marco is perfect for a date night! The space is very cozy and inviting and the food is absolutely delicious! We got the lamb meatballs and the carne pizza and both were very good. Would definitely come back next time we’re in Denver!

No longer offering wines by the glass; huge scam. Food substantially declined in quality. As a regular, feeling taken huge advantage of. No longer our go-to spot, unfortunately.

We had great service and the food was very good. We started with the bread, mozzarella, and olive oil with Caesar salads. Since they are known for their pizza, we ordered the Prosciutto, Margherita, and House Sausage. There were four of us and we had leftover pizza which was nice. The only drawback was we were seated in the back of the restaurant and it was warm, and pretty crowded. I would have rather sit in one of the booths in the front where it was a bit cooler. We will be back.

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.
