About
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.

The place was packed so we figured it was good. It had a bar atmosphere - which I am no fond of but we wanted to try. The tomato bisque and kale salad were a real treat. We truly enjoyed every bite.

Excellent. One of the best Italian/pizza places I have been to. Highly rated and justifiably so. Salad was excellent. Beer was local brew, pizza was unique. Very high quality ingredients. Good service. In a fun part of town.

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