The restaurant is highly rated on most websites and it lives up to the praise. It's a large dining room with a lot of brick and wood so it is loud but if you come expecting that it is not an issue and happen to...More

I've raved about Osteria Marco before, and I keep going back. There are many choices in LODO, but none that I've tried have impressed me as much. The staff are always friendly, courteous, and efficient. The food is always delicious.

Was in town on business with a group of colleagues. Was recommended by a friend who lived in town and they really hit the mark. Good quality Italian wine and wide variety of food.

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

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.
