First time here and the food was absolutely delicious. We can see why they have won so many local awards. Really, really good Italian food. Since it was our first time, our waitress (Meagan I believe) gave us the garlic knots on the house. Super nice gesture and made an instant great first impression. They were awesome. The only negatives were that I did not receive a Caesar salad as requested, which is totally not a big deal. They were super busy, even though we had a 7:30 reservation and I could tell everyone there was working super hard. Also, I left absolutely stuffed and the salad wasn't on the bill so honestly, no harm no foul. The other thing was that it was kind of loud in there, again they were booked up. But the atmosphere there is really awesome and the place is super cool and rustic. Prices were decent, but I don't mind paying for really excellent food, which this was. Overall a great experience and cannot wait to come back and try other dishes.
I’m reluctant to leave a review as I want to keep this place a secret and hog their exquisite pastas for myself. Cranelli’s has quickly become our go-to joint for Italian fare and I’m not kidding when I say you’ll want to lick the plate clean for almost any pasta dish you get! And our favorite part is that you can always get a half-portion, so you can try two different ones each time you go—(I highly recommend the Chicken Genovese, but you can’t miss with any of them really). Service is always friendly and it’s very cool that they employ a lot of high school aged kids who work very hard to help keep the atmosphere clean and lively. Perfect for a date-night, big family gathering, or even just to sit at the bar solo for a drink and dish. Pros: Top notch menu and service. Cons: Very limited seating/parking (it fills up fast so make sure to make a reservation), small portions for happy-hour food (a con for a guy like me with a huge appetite but could be the perfect size for some).
It's a 4.5 stars. Server was Van and she was great. We ordered 1 spicy Italian margarita and 1 regular Italian margarita. We didn't even finish them. They were awful with little to no tequila. The spicy one tasted like the non spicy one. The said they used jalapenos to make it spicy. No way. No jalapeno flavor. They brought me extra spice on the side which was a clear liquid. Do not order margaritas here. Entrees do not come with salad or rolls. Our server brought us some garlic knots on the house to try them. We ordered a salad and it was good as well as the knots. The tiramisu I believe was store bought. I've had worse but I make it better.
WOW!! Is all I can say. Phenomenal customer service. Delicious food. Great ambiance. The young lady who is a hostess, super sweet and welcoming (blue eyes with blonde wavy hair). Melissa was my waiter and one of the best customer service I’ve received. Her knowledge on the menu and recommendations from appetizers, entree’s and dessert is what made this experience top tier for me. I wish we had one of these restaurants in Texas! Will recommend this restaurant to everyone I know who comes to visit Denver or lives here.
Wonderful food! We were driving about and hour away from our home and decided to try this place out. Service was great and they gave us some free garlic knots for being our first time there. After an appetizer two cocktails and two entrees I'll say that our bill was pretty pricey. This is an occasional place in my opinion. Loved their caprese
