Rabbit gnocchi

This might be my favorite item on the menu. It's between this and the Lamb Ragu for sure. But literally every single thing on this menu is superb and the staff is amazing. This is easily my favorite restaurant in Denver. No question about it.

One of our absolute favorites. I usually order two so I have leftovers. I usually cannot eat the whole thing, but hubby always finishes it on top of his meal!!!

Lamb Ragu

This dish was absolutely amazing! And I LOVED the truffle cheese that garnished it! By far the best pasta dish I've had! The whole experience there was so delightful and we would definitely be coming back again! This is now our new favorite Italian restaurant!

Vincisgrassi - Famous 100 layer Lasagna

Lasagna... a taste of home, but better than grandmas. Awesome dish. Followed by sinful tiramisu, put me to bed happy!

Buffalo Burrata

My boyfriend is Italian so we love when we find a good spot with wood-fired dishes, delicious flatbread and pastas, and great small plates. We knew this was our new date spot when we tried the Burrata flatbread. It was so creamy and fresh over a crispy flatbread freshly baked with sundried tomatoes and basil, Mmm!!

Whole Roasted Rotissiere Chicken

I genuinely was not expecting it to be THIS GOOD but WOOW--legitimately the best meal I've had in a very long time. My husband and I split the Whole Roasted Rotisserie Chicken (familia feast) and our eyes were popping out of our faces the entire time. I'm eating leftovers now and had to write a review!! It came with a huge caesar salad (which was GRILLED and SO GOOD), a container of mouthwatering grilled bread, and then a container with the whole roasted chicken + potatoes. It was all perfectly packaged and easy to assemble. The chicken skin legit tasted like bacon just by itself, and the meat beneath was juicy and flavorful. Then the fried potatoes were so flavorful that I didn't even use ketchup (I'm ashamed to have even considered it). The sauces that came with were all incredible. Just.. do it. Just order something. Worth the $.

Charbroiled Oyster

We came here for happy hour, and it did not disappoint. It was very reasonably priced for what you got, especially ordering off the happy hour menu. We ordered a rose, an old fashioned, the mushroom pizza, the Fattoria Piatto, and four charbroiled oysters. The oysters were so good, we ended up ordering another round.

Ricotta Cavatelli

Delightful! When it arrived at the table, you could lightly smell the lemon zest and mint. It's creamy, garlicky, and delish without being too heavy

Buffalo Burrata

We used the live in Central Park and went to Cattivella all the time. We now drive 45 minutes for Cattivella's amazing burrata, cheese plate and pasta. Well worth the drive. The food and staff are perfection every single time!!!

Calamari Fritti

Came for cocktails and appetizers. Everything was excellent. It felt like a real classy night out. Cocktails weren't overly sweetened and the food was very fresh. Central Park is lucky to have Cattivella.

Charbroiled Oyster

The Charbroiled Oysters are fantastic!!! The were served piping hot and the cheese was melted perfectly. My date and I shared 12 Oysters and she also loved them. Already planning our next trip to Cattivella's. The service was also top-notch. Robert

Best place in East Denver to dine romantically or with family-- and an absolute gem of a happy hour. I'm still in the process of trying everything on the menu but the oysters and Pasticcio are my faves so far. Keep your heads up Cattivella and keep doing what you do, we love ya!

Charbroiled Oyster

I dream about my next visit. I love their oysters. Yummy garlicky buttery heaven. I have been here and usually come for happy hour. I have had everything on the HH menu and you can't go wrong. I had the pastas too, so delicious. I taste your passion with every bite, mush love and respect.

Risotto of the night

Omg. I had the fish special. Black cod isn't normally my thing, but it was perfect. Not fishy at all. Very delicate, light flavors that paired with the fennel, pesto, and shrimp perfectly.

I had my first experience at Cativella today and I am already planning another trip back! The happy hour menu is out of this world compared to anywhere in Denver! The food itself is stunning; both in presentation and flavor. Chef Elise has done an outstanding job!

Salumi Calabrese

We just moved to South Park Hill and decided to treat ourselves. Since I am a bit COVID shy, we looked for a place to eat outside. I was impressed with Cativella's commitment to a healthy dining experience. We started off with the Fattoria Piatto (charcuterie) which is divine! A meal in itself and a definite must. A nice starter for a group and perfect for 2 with wine. We then order the Salmuni Calabrese pizza - This is a Neopolitan style pepperoni pizza with a fried chili pepper sauce that is so delish!! The dough has a robust flavor with a tender, light crust, and chew around the edges. Perfetta We missed Happy Hour (HH) by a minute, but we are definitely coming back for HH as well as dinner. With so many restaurants it is comforting to find a place where the food, atmosphere, and pricing along with the community and personalization making us a "regular".

Lamb Ragu, Pappardelle Pasta, Truffle Sheep Cheese

This dish was SUPERB! The sauce was delectably and the meat was super fork tender. It was melt in your mouth good. Highly recommended trying it. Best restaurant in the area. All the dishes are prepared with care and attention to detail. Thanks for giving us great food again!!! Simply fantastic.

Vincisgrassi - Famous 100 layer Lasagna

Stupendo!! Almost as good as Nonna Giuseppa, my mother in law in Castelfidardo Italia. This dish is very difficult to make as I've seen her do for Sunday lunches, she starts the sauce cooking early in the morning... a speciality of the Marche region, Cattivella makes this dish superb!!!! Our family loves this dish and brings us home to Italy every time! ❤️ Grazie Mille!

This place absolutely rocks!! I can't wait to come back when I'm in town again early next month. Everything I ordered last time was absolutely delicious, and the service was top notch.

Forget appetizers, forget a pizza, forget the awesome drinks...go STRAIGHT to the Crostata!! ON a cold night (or hot), indulge in this HOT, bubbly, fruit filled puff of yumminess that oozes onto the hot plate it is served on and DO NOT SHARE! So decadent and fulfilling and satisfying you must start with dessert! I wish I could share the video I have!!!

Pollo Arrosto

The most wonderful meal and service! The chicken was roasted to perfection, the appetizers were to die for, and the wine (Moltepulcciano) the perfect accompaniment!

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.
