About Osteria Marco

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 often judge a Chef by his soup making skills. It’s simple to make, yet requires great skill to execute in a perfect manner.
My soup was complete perfection. It was a potato purée with crispy prosciutto, topped with fresh herbs.
After that taste sensation, I relaxed and took comfort that the kitchen would deliver a great dinner. They did, I left very pleased. Keep up the good work!

Nolan! You're the best! Just wanted to give you a big shoutout on how awesome you made our evening. You were so kind and thoughtful when it came to my food allergy. You made sure I was comfortable, made suggestions, and double checked things. I just want to say that means a lot to me, and is not something you find everywhere.

And thanks for just being an overall, genuine nice person! :)

We'll definitely be back.

We were expecting an italian restaurant but it's more of a restaurant and bar with alright italian food. If that's what you're looking for then it'd be good, but it's not what we were looking for.

The food and service here was fantastic. It was a Saturday night and our server was great, very prompt with everything. The rotisserie chicken was phenomenal. It was more casual that I anticipated for a date night, but was still fun and energetic. I would recommend for a fun night out with friends, maybe not for a date where you really want to have a conversation.

I would love to write a good review as for the most part, it was a good meal. However, if something is super spicy, it really should mention that on the menu. I ordered the lamb panini - I love lamb and was really looking forward to it. However when it came, it was really spicy and I am not allowed to eat spicy foods. My husband and I ended up switching paninis and the chicken was fine. When we mentioned the spiciness to the waitress, she agreed that it should be indicated on the menu.... They also absolutely drowned my arugula salad in a very tangy dressing - they did bring me some with no dressing when I asked. The bread pudding dessert was heavenly and not overly big. It gets pretty noisy in there as it fills up.

Accommodating staff in an ambient setting is always appreciated at this restaurant. The happy hour deals are ideal for food and drink; and.. not just your ordinary bar food, but rather unique treats like homemade ricotta spread on oven toasted rustic bread and eggplant panini with a mountain of arugula really satisfied my picky palate. Our server was uber attentive.. (wish I recalled his name to give kudos) many thanks for a lovely Friday eve out with the ladies!

Decided on Osteria Marco because of the awesome reviews and the amazing looking menu. Went with my girlfriend for a casual date night and we got WAY more than we expected. This place is a ton of fun and the service was amazing. We got great recommendations for food and wine from our server and were not dissapointed. If you go, you must try the Fig & Goat Cheese pizza.... some of the best pizza we will ever have. A great spot that is a must within Larimer Square.

After years of being Osteria fans we have finally given up. The last few visits have included sub par service and marginal food at a high price. While they used to produce delicious food that was worth the cost, recently they have suffered from soggy pizza dough, bland flavors and skimping on menu items that used to include more (example house made ricotta used to come with pesto and brushetta with the grilled chibatta). Additionally the lack of happy hour pricing at tables drives a negative feeling for early evening diners. Making $3 more on a glass of wine seems short sighted when competing for customers with many options on Larimer Square. Osteria has lost it's place on our dining list and our recommendation list for friends. Overall we are disappointed to see the slide from a 8/10 to a 2/10 scoring and we will move on to better options with better service.
