Here're 3 reasons to consider cruising by this approachable LoDo staple: a menu full of great Italian eats, a sick patio, and an appealing happy hour with cheap meatball sliders. Stop by and try one of their incredible handcrafted pizzas, cheese plates, and cured meats. Why aren't you there yet?
Simple Italian could be best used to describe the food served at Osteria Marco, and that’s exactly what restaurant-maker Frank Bonanno had in mind when he opened up a less-complicated rendition of Luca D’Italia. Think a focused, cured meat selection with Parm prosciutto and mortadella, panini stuffed with crispy pancetta or meatballs, and a fig and gorgonzola pizzathat will make you stop and ask, “Did this food really come from a basement?” Oh yeah, did we mention it’s in a basement? But don’t let that stop you from hopping down the stairs and trying some of the best Italian in Mile High.
Another turkey day takeaway with some Italian dazzle sprinkled in, this Thanksgiving for two features slow-roasted rosemary pork loin, fingerling potatoes, baked rigatoni, and tops everything off with apple crumble cannolis, to name a few good reasons to add it to your pick-up list. Crack a bottle (or two) of red, sit back, and enjoy the marrying of seasonal Thanksgiving flavors with those that make Italian food so special. The best of both worlds, if you ask us.
Reserve your time slot and pick up for Wednesday, November 24th between 12 - 4 pm. $110 per package.
