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.

Went to Osteria Marco for my boyfriend’s birthday and they sat us at the tiniest table possible. Making my reservations almost a month ago, I figured we wouldn’t be sitting on top of people but I guess not. Food was ok, pizza was under cooked and fell apart. Overall not impressed.

We had a wonderful evening at Osteria Marco. I can't get the Prosciutto Pizza out of my head. Everything was great, the wine, appetizers and our entrees. Can't believe we have never been here before. We'll be back!

I had guests in from Baton Rouge, LA. The manager visited with us since he had spent time in New Orleans. Service was excellent despite how busy the restaurant was on a Friday night. I had the wild mushroom fusilli with the truffle oil...spectacular! My guests had the Scallops and NY Strip...Wow! The sauce on the scallops is to die for and the portion size on the NY Strip was legit! We also had a great bottle of Cab Franc to go with our dinner...we loved the wine list too.

This is the third time I have dined here...and the second time bringing guests. Great location, easy valet, Larimer St. is so cool...this is a trendy, Italian place that I will continue to keep bringing out of town guests to! Loved it...thanks so much!

We waited 45 minutes to have a server ask to take our food order, and the place was not even that busy.

Fabulous food.... but service left a lot to be desired and pretty much ruined our evening!
Granted, it was very busy as it was Denver restaurant week and normally this isn't an issue. We got there at 5:45 for our reservations and everything started out ok...although our Server, Mahriza didn't come to the table until we were there for almost 15 minutes. We ordered the first two courses (apptizers and salads) quickly which were WONDERFUL but our dinner didn't ever show up (and we're fast eaters so that wan't part of the issue) so at just after 7 pm I got up and went to see the hostess and asked her to bring some take out containers as we weren't going to have time to eat our main dishes (We had a play at 7:30) and to give her our credit card for the server (whom we never saw again...she was very nice but clearly overwhelmed!)
Sad that our evening started out so good but ended terribly! So disappointed!

Arrived 5 mins before our reservation and had to wait 15 mins for our table which was crammed up against a loud private party room with no real noise barrier and a busy hallway. Waiter was rude and literally left our table as we were about to order wine since we paused a a second to look down at the options. He came back to take our wine order 10 mins later...very odd and rushed. The food was delicious but the waiters attitude and where they seated us (unless we wanted to wait 45 mins for another table- that we RESERVED) were awful. There’s better places on larmier with just as good as food and better service.

Miserable experience. And i have been here before and have only had good experiences. Meal took over two hours from start to finish. Food was just ok, bland. Waited nearly an hour to get the salads out from the kitchen. At the end of the meal when the server asked for feedback, i politely declined. She pushed that i give feedback, i told her about the bland food, and the wait. She gave a non lackadaisical response “I didn’t know you were in a rush”. She came back to the table and told us that a manager had provided a generous comp based on our feedback and experience. Was given $8 off of a $200 check. I won’t be returning to this bonano restaurant after this experience.

Amazing food and service!! We even got a complimentary dessert for our wedding anniversary celebration :) A wonderful all around experience.

The only thing I’d say that could be improved on is the tables not being so close together. Hearing other people’s conversations on both sides of us was distracting and I’m sure they probably thought the same.

VAlentines day. WE were an hour late because of horrible traffic and they accommodated us. We had a very nice time. Just too noisy to really talk. Not too romantic because of how busy it was.

We had got our reserved table at 830 and didn’t get out till almost 2.5 hrs later. The service was friendly but so very slow. The food came out wrong (one ordered chicken parm but was brought a gross rotisserie sandwich instead and then had to wait even longer) and then my steak salad was not very tasty. I ended up eating 3 bites and that is it. Not good. I had a bite of my husbands pizza and it was pretty good.
The staff being so slow extra sucked bc we had gotten a party bus and had reservations for activities at other places. So there was more money wasted.
