We went to Osteria Marco on recommendation of someone in the hotel, and the food was pretty amazing! I had never had a beer salad before, or squash bruschetta. Loved the food, but the service could really be improved. Our server barely spoke to us, especially after the food was delivered. He seemed a little pissed off when we took... More

This is my second visit in 30 days having had a very good experience first time out. A month ago we had pizza, muscles, salads and suckling pig, all properly prepared and well worth the visit. The pizza at $15 shouldn't be a soggy mess. It was this time and should have been sent back. The rabbit was over salted... More

This place looks very small from the outside and I would have passed it by because it looked like it was full, but my colleague had been there previously and let me know there was a dining room down below. The restaurant looks like it only has a few outdoor tables and a small counter with a few stools inside,... More

This place would have been 5 stars if we had stopped at the apps!! We came in on a Friday night without a reservation and sat at the bar. The bar service was excellent. Drinks were great. We did the meat and cheese platter and ciabatta with an amazing basil pesto - it rocked! The later courses - really dropped... More

Even if you don't like it, you will here, that's how good it is. Great location with a satisfying wine menu makes this a more than ample spot for friends, family or a little of both. It's one of those places that you can always fall back on if you run out of ideas.

As the food came to the table, I had know idea what the chef was thinking. The menu is all posturing and the meal was so disappointing. Service was very slow, the food insulting, and prices promised a quality that they do not deliver.

Rustic Italian casual atmosphere. Thin light crispy crust pizza, artisanal cheeses, savory meats. Good service and drinks. Make a reservation, it gets busy.

Met one of my friends here for wine, food, and gossip. They have a great selection of house wine (red or white) for $5. They also have a nice happy hour menu, and we tried and loved the calamari (with nice greens) $5, house made ricotta (with grilled bread) for $4, and a cheese pizza (this was a normal size... More

This place is incredible - I have been twice, once for a dinner and once for a birthday event. The food is always amazing, the service is attentive and the ambiance is wonderful. I can't recommend it highly enough.
