{denver} osteria marco style pizza

April 14, 2015

One of the places my sister really wanted to try while in Denver was Osteria Marco because it was on some list of best pizza places to try in the country that she had read at one point or another. Since she travels quite a bit for work, she tries to hit as many as possible during her travels. Walking past Osteria Marco, you would think that the place is absolutely tiny because only a counter and a few chairs are visible from the outside. What you don’t realize until you walk in though is that the dining room and kitchen are actually in the basement and the place is massive. Since they didn’t have any more tables available, we decided to eat at the bar.

First we decided on some of their signature cocktails. We figured since this was going to be one of most expensive meals while in Denver anyway, we might as well. The Mora Agave and Deconstructed Grapefruit cocktails were both so delicious! Then we decided on an Arancini appetizer. We had never heard of Arancini before but were super pleased with the Butternut Squash Risotto, Crispy Brussels Sprouts, and House Made Ricotta. Then we decided on the Fig Pizza, which sounded strange, but tasted super delicious. I thought the opposing flavors of the sweet figs, sour arugula, and salty speck (cured meat similar to Prosciutto) went together perfectly. What a delicious meal!
