Our waiter was not the best, didn't seem happy to be working. The ladder back chairs are horrible-really uncomfortable. Pizzas were very good. They didn't have any specials or pasta dishes.

Food was heavy handed on salt ( arugula lettuce and parmesan) the dressing had too much salt, nothing specialty and no flavours, seating very uncomfortable. Main course Alaskan Halibut nothing special, baby carrots over cook.

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

Went after a Broncos game once.; casual was fine, but several couples were dressed up as well. Everyone appeared to be appropriate.
I don't see any pasta dishes. Do they have pasta dishes? They have pasta dishes in Italy.

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.
