App was well balanced and delicious. Only downfall is I would have liked more goat cheese.
I could eat this every day and die happy! The balance of the flavors is par excellence. Thank you Elise!
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".
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.
Everything is delicious!
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!
outstanding, delicious and amazing as always
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!!!
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!
These are fantastic! Ordered one and needed two more.
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.
The most amazing meatballs, pasta and sauce. A perfect bite.
Cattivella is by far the best restaurant in Denver!! The charbroiled Oysters are to die for! We have had fresh fish over risotto before that was incredible! Everything is great including the service!!!
Love the grilled romaine!
Always so good!!!
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.
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.
Wonderful dish at a restaurant that is one of our go to favorites. Service and food always top notch.
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.
Delicious!!! I love this place. My boyfriend and I came for date night and had a great evening.
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 $.
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.
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
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!!!
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.
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
I love grilled romaine and this is the best ever
I try to order something different every time, and its not like me. I do usually stick with one or two dishes I like. But at Cattivella, my imagination goes wild! Anything I try, is just amazing! Love to visit you guys : )
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!
The lamb ragu is top notch. Hard to find an Italian dish this rich and flavorful anywhere else in Denver
called in for take out and was quick, easy and un-rushed during busy time.
This dish was so freaking good. Couldn't eat all of it but, brought it home. Our son finished it and wanted more. 😀
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.
This is almost a meal in itself, so good and an amazing value!
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!!!!!!
The buffalo burrata is amazing! We always come back for it!
Best dish you will ever have in Denver. A must order. The quality is so fresh. We make it a point to order this each time.
My favorite drink on the menu. It's perfect!
