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 go here every time I'm in Denver and it never disappoints. From wine to pizzas to the entrees (the short rib was outstanding), I love this place!

Loved the restaurant and location and the service was great! We order drinks, pizza a main dish and desserts. Lawrenceburg Slugger was great an the deconstructed grapefruit was refreshing! Their house sausage pizza was the best! I would return just for the pizza! The pasta we ordered was our least favorite. It was burnt and dry. The server was great and was able to take care of this dish. The butterscotch bread pudding and dark chocolate torte were to die for!

Service was aweso.e. we showed very early for our reservation and they kindly sat us right away. Ciabatta and prosciutto were incredible. Try the lamb meatball! Buratta had a good flavor but wasn't creamy like I'm used to and had a weird rind on it. Ceasar salad was salty and I had to send it back (too much anchovy?). My friends liked their pizza and salad. I would definitely go back.

My wife and I came here for a pre-theater dinner on a Friday night. We were very pleased that they seated us promptly and got us in and out in time for our show, without us ever feeling rushed. The waitstaff were all friendly, attentive, helpful and enthusiastic. The food was all quite good, and what was most notable was the house made cheeses. They showed up in my wife's panini and as part of my lamb meatball dish. They were perfection!

We highly recommend Osteria Marco, and we'll be back!

Delish! We started with a meat and cheese plate and up-scaled to include the burrata - so glad we did! The artichokes were the best we have ever had, even scrumptious without the aioli. The lamb meatball and panini were devoured. We had 4 of us and shared all of the plates including a double Caesar, pizza and dessert. We will return.

Great food. I visited with co-workers. It was a bit difficult to talk to each othef with the noise level. Thw sears were close to the bar. It would have been nice if they asked about the seats. I wpuld have waited an extra 15 min. To be seated away frpm the bar.

Osteria Marco is one of our favorite spots in Denver. Always fun and lively. The staff can customize drinks beautifully and gives great recommendations and heads-ups on the menu items. The food is always delicious and crowd-pleasing. Never skip the homemade ricotta on the cheese/meat plate!!

My wife and I had a very nice late lunch at Osteria Marco in Larimer Square. I had the Eggplant Parmesan and it was absolutely delicious, and I am always looking for places that can prepare eggplant well. My wife had the Butternut Squash pizza, which I had a bit or two or three of and that was delicious also, I really liked the crust. I do wish the restaurant has more vegetarian options though, that is why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars. We will definitely return again for lunch. A big thumbs up from us.

I am a longtime fan and patron of Osteria Marco. Everything we ate last night from the burrata to the Caesar salad to the short rib was just off. Next time, I am going to stick to the Chicken dish and specialty pizzas.

Went with 3 business associates for dinner. It's in the same restaurant group as Russell's Smokehouse, so we had high hopes.

Decent beer and wine selection. I had the meat pizza. It was good. The meatballs were great. My colleague had the chicken parm sandwich. The chicken was awesome. Very traditional chicken cutlet (like my friends' mothers made growing up on NY). Could have used a little more sauce.

Overall it was good.

This was a great spot for a splurge dinner before a long-awaited theatre evening to see Hamilton. It delivered a great meal for someone who doesn't get to do that very often.

Great food & service! Three adults, two teenagers started with the Chef’s Assortment of meats & cheeses with grilled bread - yum! Girls got paninis (turkey & Italian) and they both loved them and enjoyed the side of potato salad, too. Adults got the prosciutto & carbonara pizzas - delish!! Opted for another glass of wine instead of dessert! House red is nice - light & fruity. Cute place on Larimer St. We’d go back next time we’re in town!

I frequent this restaurant once a month; it's my favorite place to take out-of-towners, or to celebrate a special occasion, or to entertain clients. The restaurant has a lively, fun, playful atmosphere. The food is consistently fantastic ; don't skip on the chef's selection of meets & cheeses (the capra ricotta is my favorite), and mke sure to order the carbonara pizza with a second egg. Other menu favorites include the lamb meatballs, the chicken parm panini, and the rabbit. I always leave the restaurant feeling full and sleepy and a little wine drunk which to me, is the sign of a perfect Italian meal in my eyes.

Osteria Marco is always a wonderful place to visit before a visit to the symphony or a show at the Denver Performing Arts Center. The food is consistently delicious, and although it's a bit high-priced, it's a winner.
