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.

Food, drinks, and service were excellent.
Casual place with upscale food. Didn't try pizza, which I hear is gold.
Burrata is amazing, ceasar salad is huge, and baked rigatoni is delicious.

Still on of my favorite places to eat in Denver. I always sit on the patio to get that relaxing feel of European sidewalk cafes. Our server was fantastic and didn't seem to mind that we tied up one of his tables for 2 1/2 hrs. The food...soooo good....burrata (yum), lavender rickey (awesome), butterscotch bread pudding (one of the best things you've ever put in your mouth! Yes, I do love this place :)

Fantastic Italian restaurant in Larimer Square. Their burrata - ricotta wrapped in freshly stretched mozzarella was to die for. We had a wonderfully attentive waitress, they aggressively clear the tables and refill water, and they showed us a wonderful first experience. House salads, margherita pizza, and short rib entree were all delicious as well.

Everything was absolutely delicious. From the chef’s cheese and meat platter right into the pizza. Highly recommend the short ribs for an entree. Great service and friendly staff!

We may have caught our server and the kitchen on a bad night. We arrived early for a pre-show dinner. We ordered the meatball sliders and speck for starters, and margherita pizza and quinoa salad for mains. The speck came out quickly, but unfortunately was very bland. Then our mains came out. The pizza was not cut and the salad was a mess of overly dressed greens, yet somehow still under-seasoned. I then asked the server to cancel our sliders, as we had received our entrees. He said I never ordered them. Obviously, no big deal that he forgot to put the app in, but better service would have involved an apology, not an accusation.

We have been here a couple times and it has been great both times. The ciabatta is delicious! Salads are great, pasta is amazing and they greeted us with champagne for our anniversary. We will be back.

The fact that happy hour was only at the bar was irritating and somewhat deceptive, since the restaurant did not indicate this policy on their social media or website.

Overall, the food and drinks were delicious and the servers were kind.

Restaurant is downstairs, so no ambient light, but nice atmosphere. Due to this can get noisy if you have busy tables around you. Food is great, we ordered family style across the menu and nothing disappointed.

We love coming here. The wine selection is great as is the food and service. We began with the house made burrata and spicy salami. Next was the house salad. The salad was so fresh, crisp and simply awesome. Finally, the meatball sliders. Just perfect.

Excellent food. Our only negative was the music was really out of place. 80”s pop music did not fit the atmosphere- but at least it was not too loud.

Housemade items make great Italian food. It's what sets an italian place apart from the countless others. Osteria delivers in every category. You'll notice in every delicious bite that everything from the sauce, to the pasta and bread are made in house. Our Caesar salad was really exceptional. Even the oil, olive and spice mixture you get to top the fresh bread is wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed every part of our meal.
Our server was also exceptional. Like any great server, she balanced being polite, fun, and professional. The ambiance is also great. It feels open, yet homey. It's romantic, but well lit enough to see.

It's no wonder Osteria is one of the highest rated Italian restaurants in Denver.
