Went for brunch on Saturday, not sure what was going on but they had a DJ and lots of loud music. But had a good time and enjoyed the food.

We sat in the quiet area downstairs (how awesome to have a noise level option!) and were one of just a few other tables down there. Our server McKenzie was awesome! We had the lemoncello wings, a salad, and the pistachio pizza— it was delicious and the neighborhood was perfect for an after dinner stroll. I’d totally go back to Marco’s!

Best Pizza in Denver, period. I've been going to Marco's since it opened, years ago and they've held up their quality over the years. There is simply no better pizza crust in Denver, and the toppings of the set pies are wonderful, fresh and full of flavor. The price is OK, as is the service.

The food was amazing, great crust with a hint of sweetness, no grease and lots of great topping choices. The pear salad on special was delicious, the tiramisu was a bit mushy but still tasty. All around delicious.

Came in to celebrate my birthday with friends for lunch. We had the wings as an appetizer and they were amazingly delicious and then the main course was great. We shared the Trio for desert, and wow, the deserts were amazing! However, the server was not very great. He was not very friendly, and hinting annoyance with us. We were the youngest people there. The atmosphere is great, and fabulous for a get together and even a date.

We made reservations for New Year’s Eve and upon our arrival, we were excited about the energy of the restaurant. Our excitement quickly dwindled when the hostess took us into the basement where it was cold, empty, and zero energy. In this basement, is the dry storage area in which the servers kept coming and going. Our server was not accommodating and when we asked for some “mocktails” for our young adult children, we were told that he didn’t understand and proceeded to bring them a Shirley Temple, which in theory is a mocktail, But not what we were looking for. The pizza was mediocre, the atmosphere downstairs was depressing, the service was horrible, and the temperature cold. If you decide to dine here, demand that you not be seated in the basement!!!

A whole lot of hype for a very average restaurant. Tripadvisor had great reviews. I had high hopes. Service was poor. Took 15 minutes just to get menus. I felt like i inconvenienced the server by just being there. He refilled my water for the first time after he brought my check. Food was average but expensive for a pie restaurant. ( $19 for a 12 inch thin crust pie). It was my first and last experience here.

We used to come here all the time, but hadn't been in a while as we were frequenting other restaurants. When we ate here this past week, we were disappointed that the food wasn't nearly as good as it used to be. The salads were small and didn't have nearly as many ingredients. Same goes for the pizza. With so many great pizza places in Denver, we most likely won't be back.

Love this place, as always! The regular pizza is amazing, but they also have the absolute best gluten-free pizza we've ever had, as my child has celiac. I would recommend this place to anyone in a heartbeat.

We have been to Marcos many times and each visit is better than the last. We have celebrated birthdays, eaten before shows and after shows. Marcos never disappoints. The pizza is amazing, wait staff fun and attentive and the atmosphere is always vibrant and comfy!! I would highly recommend Marcos to any and all lovers of great Italian pizza!

Our waitress was attentive and the service was great. Our food was also very good. The only thing I didn't car for was our table was next to a table on a slightly higher level, where a couple's back was to us - it felt a little weird to me, but otherwise we had a great dinner.

Been coming here since it was originally Marco's, then under the name Racca's and now back to Marco's. The two consistent things are: 1) simply the best pizza in Denver (Beau Jo's is in a league by themselves, very different) and 2) this location is always loud. The inconsistent things are the service. This time, after sitting waiting (with reservations) for 15+ minutes which coupled with the parking lot being tied-up by the adjacent bar and my street meter ticking away, finally got service and very, very good from that point on. But we were signaling for a server as if we were trying to land an airplane only to be ignored. Again, once we saw our person, it was great.

Always a good bet, this restaurant has, I think, the best pizzas in town. I'm not a huge fan of thin-crusted pizzas, but something about that coal-fired oven makes the pizzas here amazingly delicious. Try the margarita with pepperoni and the Del Re pizzas - you can't go wrong.
