I've come here several times for dinner, and the food has always been great. I've gone there a couple times with no reservations which has been tricky as you have to wait and may not get the most comfy spot so I recommend making reservations. If you're unable to sit in high chairs then you definitely want to reserve a... More

We came here on the last night of our honeymoon and it was so good. Definitely go for the meatball sliders! I loved the pizza I got and the dessert (it was pumpkin spice cannolli) was really good too. Make a reservation, it was very busy and I don't think we would have gotten a table without one.

Experience downstairs Italian ambiance with friends. Wood fire thin curls pizzas were great. Personally had the pork short rim risotto, excellent in all ways, meat very tasty. Entertaining to watch the street level antipasto and meat / cheese plates being assembled in the front window.

This was my first time to this restaurant although I have been to all the others by the same owner. Location is very nice in Larimer Square. The restaurant decor and sitting is not very pleasant and chairs very uncomfortable. Server was nice. The food was very average for the prices we paid for lunch both in price and in... More

I usually go here every time I go downtown. I usually order the pizza, lamb meatballs, or rabbit. I've never had a bad meal and it's always worth the price. Great service every time as well. One of my favorites.

I am finally getting around to reviewing OM after a number of trips. The most recent was two days ago. We were celebrating a birthday there. In case you've never been, the restaurant's front door opens to the top of a stairway. The dining room is down the stairs. It was ridiculously cold and snowy outside after the polar vortex... More

Six of us had dinner at Osterio Marco last night before heading to a show at Comedy Works. Out of 6 dinners two were winners--the rabbit and a sausage pizza. My husbands pizza was a gloppy mess with grey shrimp. My eggplant parm was the worst I've ever had and my friend had mussels which made her sick. I really... More

Great location and good, if uncomfortably noisy, venue but the food was disappointing to an extreme. To begin with, we asked for a 'quartino' of prosecco but we're served with just 1 glass. A quartino is normally 250ml - which this was decidedly not. The pizza base was soggy and undercooked and any Italian would be ashamed to serve such... More
