Description: 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.

“Absolutely delicious”
Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

Best ricotta I've ever had, it was part of a sampler meat cheese tray our party of 6 shared. Wines were good and everyone raved about their dish. Mine was the fig, prosciutto pizza. As for location, was quite taken aback when I turned the corner and saw the beautifully lit street.

“Great food”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

We had a great time with personable bartender and locals. The ambiance is a cozy basement that doesn't feel like you are stuck away in some dark corner.

“Food, Atmosphere, and Service - The whole package”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

This was my first trip to Osteria and it was really good. The space is open and inviting with dark woods and exposed brick. Service was attentive and the food was great. We had the bruscheta, Eggplant parm, a pizza, and a couple of delicious salads. While we are not meat eaters, some of the meat based menu items made my wouth water!

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We were early for dinner and the restaurant was empty. The hostess seated us the back behind the stairs we asked to move - she was annoyed - not nice about it. After she seated us, everything improved. Our waiter was awesome! We definitely ordered too much food for our party, but tried so many different things it was worth every dollar spent! Our waiter - she was super friendly.
I don't quite get why hostesses are allowed to be rude - this gal was. If she worked for me - I would have fired her.

“First timer”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Our first night (Tuesday) here in LoDo (Lower Downtown) and we decided to check what TripAdvisor had to say, We decided to go with suggestions from past reviewers and we're glad to say we weren't disappointed. We shared the Chop salad and the Shrimp pizza. Both were very good and the salad was exceptionally large. I highly recommend this place if you find yourself downton.
