Food was average, but the service was slow, unresponsive and the bar was marginal. Highly over rated

Great selection of Italian wines, including samples. Ordered wild mushroom pizza, split between two. Waitress always attentive, yet never intrusive. Very crowded, asked and moved from a table for two to a booth. Very happy. (Wednesday night)

Truthfully we came here as our other options were booked. It is a super fun place. The main dining rooms are downstairs and the staff has to climb up and down those stairs constantly. Yikes! It is very busy yet the staff is super friendly...More

I came here for dinner expecting high end food. What I got was pizza and a sandwich. Yes they have other things but for a high end Italian restaurant this seems out of place. Food was good

I had the shrimp pizza, the crust was so good, the toppings and cheese was excellent. The service was quick. Good restaurant in the Larimer square area.

I went with some colleagues for dinner. Everything was delicious, the best meal I've had in a while. The lamb meatballs were my favorite, especially with the burrata. Save room for dessert.

It was $27. It was good but the portion was small. It's not worth it.

Went after a Broncos game once.; casual was fine, but several couples were dressed up as well. Everyone appeared to be appropriate.

Opened in October 2007, Osteria Marco is intended to be the livelier, more playful younger brother to Frank Bonanno’s esteemed Italian eatery Luca. Guests are greeted at the top of a grand staircase by a cheese maker, deep in the throes of crafting burrata and charcuterie. At the bottom of the stairs, hundreds of bottles of wine line the walls and announce an affordable, yet progressive wine and spirits program. Whole roasted suckling pigs are the hallmark of Sunday evenings, and friendly engaging servers easily navigate diners through a thoughtful menu that runs a gamut from pizzas and panini to oven-fired shrimp, to crispy calamari and braised, lamb meatballs.
