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
The chef's meat and cheese platter with the burata was very good as always. We ordered pizza this time, and they were slow in arriving and a bit burned on the bottom. The base flavors of the pizzas we're good, and it is worth trying either the carne (excellent meatballs) or the buffalo mozzarella. One disappointing note, the various chellos we're not nearly as good as in times past; definite need to readjust.
From start to finish, Osteria Marco was everything you could hope for in a perfect evening dining out! The staff was friendly, and our table was ready early. We were offered a patio table for a short wait, or a table in the dining room immediately. We opted for the dining room even though the patio is so cute and overlooks Larimer Square. Being from out of town, we really appreciate a server that is not afraid to make recommendations and show us what they are known for. Our server was perfect and made the most phenomenal recommendations! We started with a meat and cheese board that I didn't want to end! Next we had lamb meatballs, carne pizza, and the chicken parm sandwich. The only downside was that I could not make up my mind of which was my favorite! As an adamant Chicago-style pizza girl, let me tell you that even though the pizza was thin crust I think it just might be the best pizza I've ever had in my life. Our server was training, and both women were attentive and full of recommendations without being pushy. Now, onto dessert. We reluctantly ordered the butterscotch bread pudding. I say reluctantly because we all kind of thought maybe we should order something more Italian, but it just sounded good. Two bites in, and we went ahead and ordered a second one! That was insanely delicious. I cannot stress enough what a wonderful experience this was, and how incredible our food was!
Always an excellent place for business lunches. Convenient, great quality, good service. I had the turkey panini, usually have salads. I myself did not prefer the chunks of turkey in the sandwich; made it hard to get a bite without pulling the entire piece out of the sandwich, which created a mess. I brought half home and my husband loved it.
We went before heading to the theatre, so we had to make it a quick meal. Our waiter was very mindful of our time constraint and provided excellent service. We ordered their burrata which was tasty as was the bread served with it. I wish there had been a little more bread. We probably could have asked for some. I had the mussels which were very good and my husband had a lamb sandwich which he said was only ok. He really enjoyed his tequila cocktail and I had wine by the glass.
We will go again. Their pizzas are very good!
We very much enjoyed our food, which was tasty and well-prepared. Our server(s) were attentive and pleasant. Osteria is definitely a family place, and on a Sat. night supper hour, the place filled up...and became almost too loud to hold a conversation (the only down-side, I'd say).
Overall, a wonderful place to celebrate a birthday, especially with small children. We were seated near the bar area because my son wanted to keep track of the football game. Our server was attentive and helpful and patient, especially with our group arriving at different times. However, everything worked out well and the food was delicious and everybody enjoyed themselves. I recommend Osteria Marco and will look forward to returning there.
Met my grown sons here for an outstanding meal in a very relaxed and comfortable setting. Starting with drinks all the way through dessert and espresso everything was outstanding and in the over two hours we were there never felt rushed. Excellent choice!!!
So so good. This restaurant was recommend to us from some friends who are locals and it did not disappoint!! The carne pizza and fig and goat cheese pizza were both amazing. And for starters we had the chef's meat and cheese board which was fantastic and the beet salad! Overall every person at our table only had good things to say about this place upon leaving!! We will be back!
Osteria Marco has been one of our favorite spots for years. Best arugula salad in Denver! We also love their pizza. I will say that our margarita pizza on this visit was only so,so. First time I have ever had one at Osteria Marco that was not superior. Probably just an anomaly.
We were in Denver for the first time and chose this restaurant based on reviews. The food was excellent with varied choices. The wine selection was good. It was overall a good value with waiters that were attentive and knowledgeable, steering us to good choices. I had lamb meatballs and my wife had rabbit. Both were very good. The calimari was breaded and deep fried with a real kick. The peach cobbler was great.
There aren't many places that I feel comfortable ordering a gluten free pizza, but Osteria Marco is one of those places. It's delicious and they put such care into making sure it's as gluten free as they can make it in a shared kitchen.
I got the wild mushroom and ribiola pizza.
It had been a while since I was last at Osteria Marco; I honestly had forgotten just how good it is.
The grilled artichoke was delicious; the beet salad with watermelon and cucumber, mouthwatering and the vegetable risotto was cooked perfectly and the flavor was outstanding . I was dining with a friend visiting from Los Angeles and needless to say, she was impressed.
