Meet Jimmy and Lasinda and their three children - Connor, Niko and Brittany.
Jimmy and Lasinda have lived in Highlands Ranch over the past 20 years and have built their family and their career around the restaurant industry. Lone Tree has been the melting pot of their career over the past 20 years, where Jimmy opened Bahama Breeze, Brio Tuscan Grille and was part of the management team at P.F. Chang's in Park Meadows. Lasinda served and managed at Outback Steakhouse in Highlands Ranch and is a true barista at heart, having been the GM at Nordstrom Ebar and Peaberry Coffee. Jimmy and Lasinda's combination of family values, customer service and love for food is what has kept Cranelli's thriving for years.
We welcome you to visit our cozy, family-feel restaurant and try some of their signature dishes like Lasagna, Linguine & Clams or our signature Italian Margarita to name a few. Check out our warm and quiet patio seating.

    Cranelli’s was fantastic. We were seated in the outside patio area which had an excellent ambiance to it. Our server was friendly, helpful, and checked in on us often. The food was flavorful, rich, and delicious. We had an incredible night.

    Our server was fantastic. Place was jam packed at 5pm. Bowl of pasta was $25 for a full order, drinks were $12, app was $12. Be prepared to drop a significant amount of money. I guess pasta is just boring and overpriced to me. Very popular spot with no parking.

    A nervous young man was asking for our daughter's hand. The staff couldn't have been better in helping to make this a very memorable evening! Thank you for not interrupting during a serious but fun conversation. The staff was so attentive and fun and the food was fantastic. A special night with our future son-in-law!
