Italian
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.

    Really enjoyable restaurant. Our dinners were really good seafood in a nice paella type sauce. Would have appreciated a few more expensive ingredients instead of little tomatoes and mussels (there were only 2 scallops in a $32 meal). But we'll be back to try other great looking dishes like their half chicken dinner and pizza from a nice authentic pizza oven. Overall a very reputable place by a very reputable chef.

    Excellent food. Accommodated our table of 7 without issue. Friendly, engaging wait staff. The music was loud enough to drown out neighboring table conversation and was a nice mix of music. Waits between courses were very reasonable and no special request went unfulfilled.

    As always, terrific food, attentive service, and we always love sitting at the bar- it’s a well-oiled machine, and amazing to watch the magic happen in such a small space.

    They messed up our table reservations. The guy who assigned tables didn’t appear to understand the software system. Other than that, the food was great and the server was excellent.
