Award-winning Denver chef Elise Wiggins welcomes you to Cattivella, wood-fired Italian in the Eastbridge project in the Stapleton neighborhood where she lives. Cattivella translates to “naughty girl”.

Chef/Owner Wiggins brings decades of restaurant experience to Cattivella and was named Best Italian by Westword and winner of multiple awards for food and service from The Denver Post, 5280 magazine, The American Culinary Federation and The American Automobile Association. She makes an annual pilgrimage to Italy to work with Italian chefs and learn the classic techniques and ingredients that she employs at Cattivella.

An exhibition kitchen is the star of the show at Cattivella and focuses all attention on a wood-burning pizza oven, a wood-burning grill and the graceful dance of the Cattivella cooks.

    We like this place, but it wasn't great this time. We reserved a spot at the counter and were seated next to the bathrooms and the edge of the kitchen. There were 4 empty spots at the front of the counter open. When we asked the host to move to those spots, she said they were reserved. We finished dinner in about an hour and a half and neither spots were ever taken. In fact, the front of the counter cleared out almost entirely but we could not be moved. The food was also a bit disappointing. We ordered the special spicy pasta dish and it tasted like the sauce was canned. Our chicken was also undercooked. We will give this place another try but this was certainly an off night from service to food quality.

    Excellent food and service. Easy parking and accessibly. Good value for delicious food. Good variety of entrées. It was a bit noisy, but it was Saturday night. Excellent service and great atmosphere.

    Generally this is a pretty good restaurant. Last night was OK but nothing special. Most of the food was good but my rotisserie chicken was extremely overcooked. The meat was dry and almost flavorless--no juice and really difficult to eat. I'm surprised this even made it out of the kitchen as it was dark, dark brown and shriveled. I probably should have sent it back but I didn't want to disrupt the rest of our table and I'm generally not one to send back food. I'll probably cross this place off my list for a while...
