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.

Was very impressed with the menu and service. I picked the restaurant mostly at random because we were looking for someplace new and we were very happy with our choice. Check it out!

Our server was great! After dinner we asked for a 'to go' panini and somehow the order was left off so our server apologized and said the panini would be ready shortly and would be without charge. It was a kind gesture and appreciated. When we are in Denver Osteria Marco is always on the top of our list of restaurants.

Ate here for the first time on Saturday. Good service, nice, and not too overtly friendly. The appetizer (arancini), salad, and dessert (berry cobbler) we had were very tasty; however, our main entrees (lamb meatballs and eggplant parmesan) were not very good and quite overpriced for the quality/quantity. Maybe worth another try but nothing really stands out to attract us back.

Like the food and location but it was too noisy. Our table was next to a private party and there was nothing but a sheer curtain separating us. We ‘loud talked’ thru the entire meal and the server had to lean in to hear us.

Jake, who took care of us, was great- friendly and knowledgeable. Our meal was well paced and he kept our wine glasses filled. The food was delicious, especially the sliders, arancini and pizza. We’ll keep going back to try new menu items.

Always love coming here. Starting with some meat or cheeses is a must. I highly recommend the chefs choice mix of meat and cheese. The mussels were also amazing - the sausage is super tasty! Love this place - definitely a favorite!

I send a lot of our guests here, so I was eager to try it myself. I absolutely was not disappointed. The service is top notch, and the staff are very knowledgeable about the wine and the food. We had the fig & goat cheese pizza, and it was pure bliss!

The Muscles were some of the best we've ever had, and the Burrata was also top notch. Our Osso Buco was good, but I've had better. My father had a parmesan chicken panini, which I never would have ordered, but was much better than expected.

The apps and salads came out super quick, but there was quite a lag before the entre.

We love the food and have been here several times. The staff could be friendlier and it is disconcerting to see people walk in and get seated while you wait 20 minutes for a table even though you have a reservation. Overall a good place.

Was in town for business and visited this restaurant at the recommendation of a Denver local. Holy smokes! The food was phenomenal! The three of us at the table had the steak, the veal and a squash pizza with bruschetta and roasted artichoke appetizers. All were fantastic and the service and ambiance were absolutely great. This was one of the best meals I've had in the last year.

This was my second visit and again for a business meal. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Food was good, particularly the grilled octopus. They had a good Italian (Umbrian) Chardonnay by the glass.
The only flaw was not having espresso for the second day in a row. This was really absurd. A short walk around the corner would provide several opportunities to grab a bag of beans. “Waiting for a shipment” was a pretty feeble excuse. A problem easily avoided.

We enjoyed dinner at Osteria Marco. The atmosphere is fun,, and has a buzz without being too noisy. We tried the chicken entrée, some pizzas and salads, and everything was delicious. Service was good, and staff was friendly. This is good food without the "fancy restaurant" type feel. The restaurant is downstairs in a building on Larimer Square. Great location.
