Marco’s Coal Fired Pizza – Ballpark Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
We were in Denver for a week and I heard great things about Marco's. The pizza was supremely disappointing. The ingredients were bland and old, not fresh or quality in any way. The cheese was just okay. I expected a lot more, yet in reality this place is barely a step up from Domino's.
