Hanging above the entrance to Osteria Marco is a brass pig. You could miss it if you weren't looking for it; as a matter of fact, you could easily miss the entire restaurant — which is mostly belowground. But in that warm, welcoming basement space you'll find a gourmet wonderland of artisan cured meats, handmade cheeses, beautiful wood-fired pizzas, paninis, and salads with roasted meats — all displaying a remarkable attention to culinary detail. Our favorites are the ciccioli, a braised and shredded pork dish with perfectly crisped edges, and the burrata, a creamy white cheese so perfectly light and smooth you'd be forgiven for thinking it was a balloon, about to float away.
