Officially our praise is about Cattivella's kids cheese pizza (I didn't see that on the selection menu). My son came with me when I ate lunch at Cattivella with some friends (over a year ago). Just recently we walked across the parking lot to look for ice cream, but Constellation was still closed. As we sat on the bench waiting for my husband to finish our grocery shopping, my son pointed to Cattivella and said, "I see people in there! Can I have some pizza?" I could believe my six-year-old could remember your pizza from over a year ago, but apparently he did! (He hadn't asked for it previously, so I did t realize how much he liked it). After we came home and he devoured much of the kid's pizza, he told us, "That's a good pizza!" I don't think he's ever complimented food before. Good job, Cattivella! We know where we're heading anytime we need a pizza party!

When was the last time you thought about tiramisu? Sleepless in Seattle? Me too. But we ordered tiramisu as part of a carryout Easter brunch, and let me tell you: it was fantastic. Balanced, flavorful, and not too sweet - just enough. What a light, wonderful dessert!

Cattivella Old Fashioned

Cattivella Old Fashioned hits the spot EVERY TIME! Whether it's happy hour or take out, one of the best deals in Denver. This restaurant comes through every time, and has been nothing but gracious in hosting my wife and two young kids. Thanks Cattivella! -Benton

Grilled Romaine Salad

There are only a handful of restaurants that are daring enough to grill lettuce and luckily Cattivella is one of them. This is the BEST iteration I've tried - smoky and savory. It's enough to make you give up steak.

Lamb Ragu

Every bite of this was like a warm hug from an Italian mother-in-law. My wife sat across from me, stifling laughter as I said after every bite. If it was socially acceptable I would eat this dish every day.

We loved this when our wedding was catered by Chef Elise!!! This dessert was a huge hit with all our guests. We love everything on the menu as well, huge fans of the all day happy hour, especially the grilled oysters, shrimp and mussels.

Lamb Ragu, Pappardelle Pasta, Truffle Sheep Cheese

This was the most delicious meal I have ever had. The lamb was so incredibly tender and flavorful. The pasta was cooked to perfection. The sauce was to die for. Honestly could live in this dish. Highly recommend you trying it

Buffalo Burrata

Where do I begin? My husband and I find ourselves visiting Cattivella for all occasions! We choose to sit at the chef's counter so we can enjoy watching the meticulous steps the chefs take to bring each plate together. We have tried a variation of items on the rotating menus and have never been underwhelmed! One thing that is a constant for us though is the Buffalo Burrata. The creamy texture of the burrata paired with the crispy wood-fired crust is impeccable!

Had a box lunch delivered to our Work place. St. Anthony North Health Campus. The turkey sandwich had a great flavor enjoyed the roll it was made on. The cheese type spread was terrific. Thank you so much for sharing with us. I will definitely look you up when I'm in the Stapleton area.

Excellent. The family loves it, especially the kids. Cattivella does a wonderful job and has nailed the carryout during COVID 19. Highly recommend and the amount of salad, main meal, and dessert was plenty for the whole family.

Grilled Romaine Salad

I just picked the Romaine Salad just because! ALL OF THE FOOD at Cattivella is amazing. My husband and I have been going since they opened a few years ago, when they became our favorite Italian Restaurant! We have tried just about everything on the menu. We miss sitting at the counter watching the chefs prepare meals, and it was always nice to be recognized when we walked through the door, but we will continue to eat here no matter what! So should you, you will truly enjoy the meals!

Lamb Ragu, Pappardelle Pasta, Truffle Sheep Cheese

This is seriously the most amazing pasta dish I have ever eaten. I can't do dairy and they kindly accommodated my request to leave that off. I'm still dreaming of this dish months after eating it.

This is hands down my favorite pasta dish anywhere. I love Tagliatelle noodles and Cattivella cooks them perfectly, not too much or too little and the perfect amount of flavor so that each ingredient really stands out. Cattivella is my favorite restaurant in Denver, there is not a single plate here that I do not like. Check it out! I promise you won't be disappointed.

Lamb Ragu

From the Charbroiled Oysters and Calamari on Cattivella's outstanding happy hour menu, to the rich Lamb Ragu as a middle course, every flavor is balanced and perfect! Round out the experience with the beef cut of the day- expertly and elegantly executed. I've never had anything short of a great experience!

After enjoying a fabulous meal (consisting of a HUGE variety of incredible items off of the Happy Hour menu) the chef surprised us with a complimentary spoonful of Tiramisu that was to die for ! They do it right at Cattivella - great service, an educated staff, and a menu that never disappoints !

We have been loyal acolytes of Chef Elise and Cattivella since she opened her doors. The food and hospitality is unsurpassed. We got take out pizzas last evening for dinner, and they were THE BOMB. Her pizzas put everyone else to shame here in Denver. We will survive this crisis, and one of our first stops will be Cattivella!

Certified Angus Beef Cut of the day

Always perfect! Their steaks are magical! The simple arugula salad, roasted potatoes and salsa verde on the steak call our names almost every week. The love they put into every dish is what makes Cattivella so special. We love eating out and Cattivella is our favorite restaurant in Denver. The staff makes you feel like family and chef Elise always takes time to chat. It makes for a special dining experience every time. Thank you for all the love you share with us! Roeland & Tawnya

Fattoria Piatto

I keep telling everyone that this is the best $10 happy hour item in the country. Up to 4 different cheese selections, 4 different salumi, nuts, jams, preserved tomatoes and wood-fire roasted grapes - all served with grilled fresh bread points - this piatto never fails to impress. Pair this with a nice happy hour house red and you're in heaven.

Charbroiled Oyster

This place is so good we went back three nights in a row. Staff, wine, cocktails are all great. Food is impeccable. Chefs bar to watch all the line is fun and refreshing. Great prices & all dishes appetizers, salad, pizza, mains, and the crostini dessert, mind blown. I've tried them all, it's love, my wife and I are foodies and we found an unexpected favorite.

Polpettes are my favorite thing on the Happy Hour Menu. I love them! The service and food are great.

Courtney 3 months ago


I absolutely love Cattivella and could go on and on about the quality and tastiness of the dishes! My all time favorite is the homemade Tagliatelle pasta. It is light and fresh, seasoned just perfectly and I usually add grilled shrimp for just the right amount of food. The risotto special is always fantastic too! The service has always been great, and the ambiance is classic and welcoming. This is by far our favorite neighborhood spot and Italian food in Denver!

Focaccia di Recco

My family and I absolutely LOVE The Focaccia Di Recco. My boys ask for it every week! We like to get extra Balsamic viles because it is so incredible.. This dish and the Lamb Ragu are dreamt about on a regular basis. I feel so lucky to have you in our neighborhood!
