We came here on a recommendation from a delightful restaurant with very refined preparations. What a HUGE mistake. The food was not refined in any sense of the word. We had calamari that we sent back due to an extremely greasy texture and a not...More

7 of us sat down for a family meal and could not be more pleased. The service was fantastic and the food even better. GF options were great and everyone found something they loved. Homemade cheeses are spectacular!

Good drinks. The meat and cheese platter not on the menu is a must. Beer salad with chicken or shrimp makes a fabulous dinner with lots of flavors. Parmesan chicken sandwich dry and not so good. Lamb sandwich excellent. Didn't have pizza but heard they're...More

An Italian restaurant that doesn't have pasta. But they do have very thin crust pizza (and wine). The pizza was OK and it was large enough to take back of it to my hotel. Not spectacular enough that I'd go back. Lots if other options...More

Burrata - The warm bread was slightly salty which was nice with the cheese. Mushroom and cheese pizza was delicious too. Worth a second visit! The restaurant is also on a nice street for an evening stroll and some shopping after dinner.

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.
