Dawn W. from Broomfield, CO says: “As I walked away from lunch today there was a skip in my step and I realized I was completely smiling ear to ear. I tried to think of a bad meal or even mediocre meal that I have ever had here. Simply stated….Zero. Of restaurants that I frequent, I can pretty much always identify one “off” day. That is part of the business and I am okay with that. Burratta, Shrimp and Artichoke Pizza (yes, that is right) and the Rotisserie Chicken Salad is delicious – every time. Keep up the good work!!”
Amanda T. from Denver, CO says: “Osteria Marco had never been on my list of restaurants to try. That was silly. B. and I had a wonderful meal here before heading over to Comedy Works last weekend! We started with the Cheese Plate and had the Burrata added to it. And, for dinner I had the Shrimp Salad and B. had the Grilled Vegetable Risotto. While we enjoyed the Burrata, I don’t think it lived up to all the hype I’ve heard about it on Yelp and elsewhere. Don’t get me wrong, it was good and there wasn’t any left. I just don’t know if I would actually order it again or tell anyone it’s a must have. I actually think the stand out cheese was the sheep’s milk cheese and that grilled bread is pretty darn tasty too. My shrimp salad was amazing! Grilled shrimp with fresh grilled corn and a corn vinaigrette that was like nothing I’ve ever had; outstanding! And Brent really enjoyed his risotto. Our server was friendly, helpful and made sure we were served in a timely manner so we could head over to Comedy Works in time for our show. While Osteria Marco may not have been on my list of restaurants to try, it is certainly on my list of places I’ll return to.”
Sean M. from Grand Rapids, MI says: “Love, love, love this place. Came here for lunch with my sister and we enjoyed every part of the meal. We started off with the apple fennel salad which was amazing. It was the perfect salad and perfectly dressed. It contained apples, fennel, frisee, toasted almonds, and gorgonzola picante. A must order salad. Then we shared the fig, goat cheese, fontina, speck and arugula pizza. This pizza is perfect. Salt and sweet. The crust is thin and crispy. Would love to come back to try their apps and paninis.”
