This was my first time to this restaurant although I have been to all the others by the same owner. Location is very nice in Larimer Square. The restaurant decor and sitting is not very pleasant and chairs very uncomfortable. Server was nice. The food was very average for the prices we paid for lunch both in price and in... More

I usually go here every time I go downtown. I usually order the pizza, lamb meatballs, or rabbit. I've never had a bad meal and it's always worth the price. Great service every time as well. One of my favorites.

I am finally getting around to reviewing OM after a number of trips. The most recent was two days ago. We were celebrating a birthday there. In case you've never been, the restaurant's front door opens to the top of a stairway. The dining room is down the stairs. It was ridiculously cold and snowy outside after the polar vortex... More

We went in a large group for lunch and everyone had very good food and an excellent experience. Great lunch offering and location. Interesting setting that you will enjoy.

Six of us had dinner at Osterio Marco last night before heading to a show at Comedy Works. Out of 6 dinners two were winners--the rabbit and a sausage pizza. My husbands pizza was a gloppy mess with grey shrimp. My eggplant parm was the worst I've ever had and my friend had mussels which made her sick. I really... More

Great location and good, if uncomfortably noisy, venue but the food was disappointing to an extreme. To begin with, we asked for a 'quartino' of prosecco but we're served with just 1 glass. A quartino is normally 250ml - which this was decidedly not. The pizza base was soggy and undercooked and any Italian would be ashamed to serve such... More

The food here is fantastic! We enjoyed the Chef's cheese plate then various pizza and sandwiches. The downside was the service - it was a little lacking. It's worth coming here but plan on plenty of time.

We had no reservation so were seated at the back bar. The service was amazing and the food was really good. The lamb meatballs and short rib were amazing.

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
