Charbroiled Oyster

If you have eaten at Acme Oyster House in NOLA, it is the standard for charbroiled oysters nationwide. Elise's charbroiled oysters beat Acme hands down. The flavor was exquisite and the texture was butter that melted in your mouth. All the food was absolutely superb. This is now our favorite Denver area spot. The all-day Monday happy hour is a great way to introduce yourself to the fresh, vibrant, intricate flavors of this elegant and sublime cuisine.

Charbroiled Oyster

What an experience! Both my husband and I were blown away by the ambiance of the atmosphere and how talented and knowledgeable the waitstaff was. The wine list was not only delectable, but highly expansive for any wine preference. The calamari was absolutely divine with an elevated palate of perfection. The charbroiled oyster was to die for and their variety of skillfully prepared dishes has made Cattivella our favorite restaurant. Getting to know the waitstaff has been such a pleasure over the times we have visited, as well as the chefs. The personalities and their memory of you leaves such an incredible impression. Could not be happier and have recommended this beautiful restaurant to everyone we know.

Grilled Romaine Salad

Love the grilled romaine salad! The lightly charred romaine has a unique and elevated taste paired with a light and delicious Cesar dressing. Perfect with a glass of wine and dinner on the patio.

Buffalo Burrata

One of our fave restaurants! We have had a great experience every time we've gone. The seafood stew is one of my favorites. The burrata is amazing...Truly everything has always been great. I had a special birthday dinner, and the chef made me a custom pistachio cake that was to die for. She's always willing to go the extra mile.

Rabbit gnocchi

This dish is amazing! The gnocchi has the perfect texture and the taste is fantastic. We have had many other great dishes here as well, but this one stands out for me.

Pollo Arrosto

Omg - if I am ever on death row, this might be what I ask for as my last meal! Everything is perfectly cooked and seasoned - crispy chicken, peppery arugula with a light dressing, crunchy/squishy potatoes. Just amazing...

What a FANTASTIC dish, my absolute favorite. As a food journalist and foodie the balance of favors are impeccable. The firm exterior is just the right along with the creamy interior. The peppers add a nice bite along with the acidity of the balsamic vinegar. A nice Cabernet Sauvignon or Frappato would pair fantastically. Elise is a gem to speak with, her insight and personality is fantastic. Most restaurant owners won't talk with you. I look forward to my 7th seating wes with Cattivella, Malcolm Dean

Pollo Arrosto

Cattivella is the best restaurant between Stapleton and downtown. Nothing on the menu will disappoint you. Nothing. The pollo arrosto was fabulous, like everything else we've eat here! Seriously, treat yourself. Eat at, or from Cattivella.

16 oz CAB Fire Grilled Ribeye

We were hesitant to "take on" this dish, but we savored every bite and could not stop talking about it throughout our meal. We could almost not focus on anything other than this beautiful, perfectly prepared dish!! We have loved every experience of Cativella and look forward to dining in again someday soon.

Buffalo Burrata

This buffalo burrata is without a doubt consistently the best we've had! (Including in Italy) I insist on ordering it every time we come, but it's also pretty filling.

16 oz CAB Fire Grilled Ribeye

I can't rave ENOUGH!!! My husband and I began with their calamari and oysters (which feature a divine garlic herb butter) which were absolutely heavenly. I then ordered a Fire Grilled Ribeye and my husband the Buffalo Mozzarella, and it was then that Cattivella became our favorite Italian restaurant! Both dishes were made to perfection and the fire grill adds such an incredible taste and texture. DIVINE!!!!!!

This is one of my favorites - so simple, but so delicious! perfectly cooked and fried little bites of polenta, with whipped goat cheese, balsamic glaze AND Fresno peppers, which totally make the dish sing! We get it almost every time we come. I only wish there were 6 pieces instead of 5 so we wouldn't have to fight over the odd one out... ;)

It's difficult to write all the fabulous things I could share with the world; about Elise's fabulous creation! Cattivella... simply thinking this creates a mouth watering experience and desire to once again, indulge in their wonderful, surprising creations! Absolutely fabulous and delicious!!

Buffalo mozzarella

Having the highest caliber ingredients and a wonderful blend of a cracker like crust topped with a beautiful sauce and buffalo mozzarella, Cattivella has quickly become my favorite restaurant in Denver. Cattivella is special not just for the always consistently high quality food they create but for the welcoming and fun atmosphere the staff and chefs are always able foster. I have been going to Cativella consistently for almost a year now and I know almost all of the waiters and plenty of the chefs which is something I haven't been able to experience anywhere else. Anytime you are lucky enough to be at Cativella, you know it's going to be a good time.

Buffalo Burrata

Absolutely delicious! Between the buffalo burrata and the prime rib pizza I I almost didn't want to try anything else. However during my 16 visits this past year I had a great sampling of the menu and Cattivella has become my favorite restaurant in Denver.

Hard to choose one dish at Cattivella to rave about, not simply because everything I have had there is out of this world, but because the incredible food is packaged in an atmosphere and vibe that can't be matched. Friendly staff and amazing service to top it all off. Oh... and the Sgagliozze is to die for :-)
