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.
What a great and creative menue for an Italian restaurant in Lodo. Although the entranceway was a little intimidating the basement restaurant was warm and inviting. There were many open tables leading to a more social dining experiance but we sat in a booth giving us a bit pf privacy. Dinner was 5 star many ingreadients made in house. The only drawbacks were although the waitress was knowledgable she spoke so fast my international guest could understand little and the wine list was far from updated.
If you like creative Italian cuisine and don't mind eating in a dark basement, then OM is the place for you. We started with the Burrata which was delicious, and plenty for two people. For entrees we ordered Lamb Meat Balls and Stuffed Pork Loin. Both were innovative, delicious and generous. Our server was Katie, and she was engaging and knowledgeable. We had two things we really didn't like about OM...lack of intimacy, unless you want intimacy with strangers, and an overall darkness. They have a communal dining set-up, but even the individual tables are less than two feet from each other lined along the west wall. The tables are dark, the walls are dark, the floor is dark, the lighting is dim...get the picture? Kudos to Chef Bonanno on the menu, but please, give the place a face-lift!
This restaurant is one of my favorites among Denver restaurants. The service is fantastic (very knowledgeable staff) and the food is really amazing. I love that they make their own cheeses, cure their own meat, and use whatever is in season on the menu. The food is fantastic and keeps me coming back. The roasted pig on Sundays is also terrific!
What a fun spot. Our waiter was fantastic and had thorough knowledge of the menu. Definitely try the house cheese! Pizza was great with thin, crisp crust. And the price was better than fantastic for a Larimer St. dining establishment.
