We just live around the corner but could never get into Cattivella because it was always so busy. We were able to sit at the bar last night (dinner and show) and well I can see why this place is so popular. I have not had a meal like that in Denver in a very long time. The service was spot on, the staff was super friendly & knowledgeable and the food was spectacular! I had the Pasticcio (meatballs on homemade ravioli=yum). My spouse had the Beef Ragu special with shell pasta and it was delizioso!!!!! You can tell Chef Elise cares about her staff and the food. I can't wait to visit again, especially on Mondays during happy hour!! Well done Cattivella and thank you for a wonderful evening!
The Pasticcio on the happy hour menu is delicious! The melted cheese and huge meatball is perfection. The size portion is great if you're sharing a few items from the happy hour menu!
This is the best restaurant in Denver. Living in the San Francisco Bay Area and NY and having eaten in some of the best restaurants, the food of Cattivella is as good or better. Simply impeccable and the bar-seating is rather mesmerizing while one watches the orchestration of the team. The Chopped Celery Fennel Salad and Pasticcio are delicious. The Salad is so refreshing and the Pasticcio with the meatballs & pasta is superb.
