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.

Osteria Marco Ratings and Reviews

Every bite was outstanding. This is the best pizza in Denver. My only disappointment was the lack of hospitality: even though I had noted in the Open Table reservation that we were celebrating my 50th birthday, no one appeared to have read it, not the hostess, not the manager, no one. I even wrote this on their survey form after the meal - no follow-up whatsoever.

I was very disappointed with our experience. we asked if there was a children's menu and our server told us she recommended a cheese pizza. We thought it would be a small children's portion and instead it came out as a full size pizza enough for 2-3 people. I thought it was very misleading that our server didn't mention that when we were ordering. She was a nice gal but didn't see to care much about our experimence. Overall we were disappointed and won't be recommending to anyone we know.

Pizza was OK, appetizer was OK, drinks were good. The prices were pretty ridiculous considering the place is not very attractive, it looks like a run down bar on the inside. The service was good. Nothing was great about this place. Two people having a couple of drinks and pizzas should not have to drop $100 (including a generous tip).

While there was nothing wrong with the food or with the experience, it was all just so-so. With so many other restaurants to choose from, I wouldn't go back to this one and I wouldn't put it on the list of places that I would recommend.

Osteria Marco has never disappointed and last night was no exception.
The service was impeccable, the Montepulciano was wonderful, and the food was so delicious! The fried green tomato appetizer was sooo good...tangy and savory. The barrata was so creamy and rich. And the carbonara pizza?! Holy moly! Here's a tip... order it with two eggs...no joke, it is out of this world!
We were celebrating a girlfriend's 40th birthday and they made sure to recognize it. It was a wonderful evening!

Visiting our son in Denver and picked this restaurant online because it is close to his apt -- turned out it is his favorite place, and with good reason. Authentic Italian with incredible starters (calamari salad and toasted bruschetta were unusual and packed with savory goodness) and real deal Neapolitan style pizza. Our server was attentive and friendly, and the atmosphere is pleasant. Strong recommend.
Our server didn't know much about wine b ...
Our server didn't know much about wine but made suggestions with wrong information anyway. The calamari was mostly wilted lettuce with a sweet sauce. The calamari themselves were over breaded and very greasy. Atmosphere was cool and pizza tasty but undercooked.
Lots of hype, food was ehh. Didn't live up.

The food is amazing. That said, I only eat out for dates and the tables are too close together for any intimacy and seating is uncomfortable. Very noisy because it was busy. Service was mediocre at best. Menu did not accurately describe desserts, as a result I got peanut butter cannoli which I would never have ordered otherwise.

A friend and I arrived on time for our dinner reservation and were rudely told that there was another party ahead of us and then took us later downstairs to the table closet to the kitchen/bar.
No one greeted us or brought water for At least 5 minutes and when they did she was rude when my friend asked about the wine list "uhhh it's on the back" the waitress said with a huge sigh. I asked for a Sprite and she ordered wine and she left.
She returned with the wine and my drink and started to walk away....we stopped her and said we were ready to order an appetizer...turns out it wasn't our actual server she was just bringing drinks and didn't say she'd get our server but instead just shrugged us off.
5 min later our actual server came by and took our order and I mentioned my drink tastes odd. Not like Sprite like I asked. She then told me that's bc it's soda water with lemon and lime not at all the same. I wish she would have told me that ahead of time. It taste awful.
Soon dinner arrived and my panini was sooo soggy. The bread on the outside was burnt and toasted but the contents were so soggy and gross. I couldn't even eat it. Not impressed.
My friend complained for me as I typically don't say anything. Our server was unapologetic and said she could have it redone but that's just it. Ended up taking it off our bill but she was so rude.
After my friend finished her meal and second glass of wine we got the bill and hightailed it out of there. The 3 hosts upstairs didn't say good bye or thank us for coming in. I will never go here again and will tell clients and friends to avoid as well. Extremely rude and terrible experience over all!!!!!

Our waiter was fantastic! Very pleasant and eager to tell us about the food and answer our questions. Also was able to joke around with us, which we liked. The food was delicious and well presented. I would recommend to anyone!

Osteria Marco is kind of our go-to restaurant downtown. Close to Theater District, Pepsi Center, Comedy Club, 16th St Mall, etc. Food is very good without being pretentious. Prices are very reasonable for downtown. Other area restaurants may be fancier inside, but I like the basement level ambiance. Reminds me of many restaurants in Italy. Overall a great value.

Lovely spot on Larimer Square with the best burrata we've ever had! It and several other cheeses are house made. Staff is very accommodating with special requests, and our waiter knew the menu well. Liked the food, service, and ambiance so much that we went two nights in a row.

Osteria Marco remains to be one of my favorite restaurants in Denver for ten years running now. I always end up bring friends and family when they come in town. The value is unbeatable. Exceptional food and service for below-average prices.
