Marco’s Coal Fired Pizza started with the simple idea that passion makes great pizza. The authentic taste of Italy is served to you through the finest ingredients and traditional techniques of the Verace Pizza Napoletana (VPN). Only 00 flour, San Marzano tomatoes, all natural fior di latte or bufala mozzarella, fresh herbs and fresh, all natural, non-processed ingredients are acceptable. Marco's Coal Fired Pizza cooks in authentic, Italian hand built wood fired pizza ovens.
Come taste Marco's Coal Fired Pizza's efforts and see if we don’t have you dreaming of warm Neopolitian nights, no passport required!

This stop was a great find for pizza while in Denver. The limoncello wings stole the show though!

Great pizza. Our waiter was excellent and engaging without being overbearing. We had a large group and it took us a while to decide on what we wanted. Waiter didn't seem irritated at all. We tried 5 different pizzas and they were all very good!

One of the best pizzas we’ve ever had. Coal firing definitely lends a incredible flavor to the pizza. Highly recommend and the patio was quiet.

The pizza was really good. The middle got a little soggy, but flavor was great, however. Could have used a little more staff as it took a while to get drink refills. Perhaps we're too picky. It is definitely a place to visit and we will probably go back when in town. Just mentioned a couple things that could have made it a 5 star experience.

Marco's Coal-Fired pizza is great! It was late in the evening, after 10:30 p.m. and there were four of us in our party. First, we ordered a large Caesar Salad to share and the limoncello wings for starters. We also ordered three different pizzas - my personal favorite the Margherita Pizza- great crust, cheese, tomato and fresh basil. Everything was delicious. So was the cold beer! Our server was attentive and friendly and we enjoyed sitting out on the patio with all of the colorful painted walls.

The pizza was good but not the best. A bit soggy on the edges and brown on the top. Ok, that’s neopolitan, but a little too soogy. Good flavor. Excellent service.

The staff was amazing and took great care of us. They were incredibly accommodating when extra people showed up that were unplanned. I need gluten free and I had more options than most places. The GF pizza was amazing! I will definitely go again. It was perfect before a concert at Coor's Field so before a baseball game it would be perfect.

Always amazing!! I honestly don’t want to overly recommend this place because I would come here everyday if my wallet and waistband could afford it! Great atmosphere, authentic delicious pizza made with love! I can’t explain, just get over there. And don’t worry about going back again the next day.

Special shout out to gluten and/or dairy-free-ers it’s the pizza you’ve been waiting for!

The other pizzas included fresh mozzarella and basil- awesome. Also the meats which I cannot recall the names were great. I highly recommend.

We stopped in before a Rockies game for some wings. It was still happy hour and we decided to get the ham sandwiches and a big order of wings. It was all delicious, as was our cocktails. A few things would have made our experience better. 1) We were told the big order of wings had 12, but ours was only 11. Not a huge deal, but also not what was promised. 2) Our server (Mark? Matt?) was attentive when we arrived, but then ignored us after we got our food. We sat without drinks, without food trying to wave him down for over 25 minutes before I had to stand his face and ask for our check. In fact, ALL servers, including a guy that looked like the owner (older, not wearing a uniform shirt but clearly working the front of house) ignored us for that 25 minutes but walked all around us helping others. I LOVE the food at Marcos, but would suggest that if you are in a rush, you may want to go somewhere where the staff is more attentive.

Our favorite pizza in Denver. Highest quality ingredients and toppings. Salads are also excellent. The limoncello wings are unlike any wings anywhere and worth a special trip to any of the 3 Marco's locations. Don't confuse this with the other similarly named pizza chain that is nothing like this.

Nice place, great friendly service. I ordered the traditional pizza; high quality ingredients but could have cooked a couple minutes longer because I didn’t get the “coal fired” feeling. Not crispy . Small house salad was delish.

Couldn't ask for a better Saturday night meal in Denver. Bronx pizza, limoncello wings and rotini all five stars. The owner even came over to us after we were seated and asked us if we wanted a better table. We stayed where we were at because it was great for people watching. Nice people, great food>

We were there with my husband’s parents who were in from the East Coast. The place was packed and Marco himself was there helping the staff. I spotted him and started a conversation. Even though he was busy, he spent some time speaking with us and bought us a round of limoncello which made the evening extra special for my in-laws. We ordered pizza, salads and drinks; all were amazing. This place is highly recommended!! It’s walking distance to the stadium/Ballpark, RiNo and LoDo.

The ‘zza was great. The service was surprisingly quick, friendly and good considering the place was overrun before the Eagles/Buffet concert. The bar service was a bit slow on mixed drinks but it’s hard to fault them given the melees that was happening.
