Little Italy on Larimer Square

Casual Italian in Denver

Osteria Marco, named for the youngest Bonanno son, opened its doors just in time to celebrate Marco’s fourth birthday in October, 2007.

Chef-proprietor Frank Bonanno wanted to complement his highly successful high-end Italian eatery, Luca (named for the older Bonanno boy) by offering a little brother—a more playful version of Luca, but with the same artisan spirit, impeccable service, and the best house made burrata in Denver.

The Story of OM

Osteria About Image 1
Osteria About Image 3

Bringing delight and discovery to Larimer Square.

Wide striped black and white awnings greet passersby as both a tribute to the original grocer’s shop that stood at 1453 Larimer in the 1880’s and as a nod to the traditional bold butchers’ cloth. Pigs—in metal on the street and in canvas as within the osteria—were crafted by Denver artist Quang Ho and ironsmith Michael Mancerella, not only as additional tribute to the butcher (and the wares found within Osteria Marco) but to bring luck and good fortune to all who enter. With our classic hand-tossed Italian pizza, homemade pasta, and extensive and accessible wine selection, house crafted meats and cheeses, and rustic elegance—Marco carries on the tradition of a classic osteria—a place where an upscale chef might flip a few pizzas; where great food, fabulous wine, and laughing friends connect to experience the Italian table.
