Cranelli's Italian Restaurant
BOGO ON House Wine & Well
Sat in the outside area which was quieter. Service was good. Love their sandwiches (with toasted bread, garlic/herbs), but decided to try the salad with spinach, strawberries and chicken. Good, but a bit expensive (it is Lone Tree).
We always live Cranelli’s! However, it is loud, (small confines).
We love Cranelli’s! The service is as awesome as the food. Thank you Brittany and all for another fantastic experience!
Love this restaurant. Family owned, friendly people. Small gem, very busy, very loud, but not a problem. Great happy hour and great recommendations from the servers. Servings are huge and don't miss the garlic knots.
Loved the garlic knots, chicken parm and lasagna. Caesar salad was just ok. Very fun that they do a group birthday celebration - delicious foood and good value...would definitely go again
Yet another great experience. Food was awesome. We really like the small plate option and the choice of subbing spinach for pasta. Its a popular, busy place so it is tight and loud but the ambience still works.
Cranelli's is a winner every time! Best marinara and meatballs anywhere! All of their fresh Italian dishes are scrumptious!
Had the table waiting for our big family. Food was delicious, kids loved it, hit the spot after a long morning. Attentive service. Cute outside space.
The service was top notch, refills immediately, great recommendations, and super friendly.
And the food was outstanding. A half portion is plenty, but the full portion made for great leftovers. Don’t skip the garlic knots, best I’ve ever had.
Fantastic homemade food! The owner gets to know every table and the lasagna is the best I've ever had
We love coming to Cranelli's. The food is consistently delicious. Tonight was no different. Our server Mitchel was fantastic! We love coming here and will continue to come back.
Positive, attractive ambiance, attentive service, the chicken masala was very tasty - I would go again.
Just brought it up online, had good reviews so we decided to try it, was very happy with the service and the food was awesome. Will definitely return and recommend.
The line is always long; has to be great, right? Right! From the fun service to the delicious food, everything was better than expected. Highly recommended!
Wonderful homemade Italian food and experience. The owner is always visible and very friendly. The staff are all knowledgeable and kind. I highly recommend the eggplant sandwhich and eggplant parm!
Writing this with my newborn daughter on my chest. Discovered this place when looking for a place to eat before pregnancy classes and it's my favorite. Great food, amazing people, all need to eat here!
Although a very small restaurant, the food made fr hand-scratch made up for everything. This was our first visit, and the first time my picky-eating husband repeatedly complimented the fresh and bold taste in the dishes. Be prepared to meet new friends since the tables are so close. Great choice for lunch or dinner.
Yummy! It like going to eat at Grandma’s - always so good and they welcome you like family.
As always...fun, service friendly and prompt.
This time tho my clams and linguine wasn't up to par. The sauce was so thick it was like paste.
Hard to find the clams. Normally this dish is good here.
This was our first visit and we will definitely be back. Made reservations same day and received a call before arrival that due to weather they were going to have to sit us inside. We were greeted at the door and recognized our name and took us directly to our table.
Service was personal and you most certainly felt like family. Brianna and Brittany were very keen on answering our questions about the restaurant even though they were busy.
We had a pizza and shared a salad and would recommend both. Pasta dishes looked very generous and the cappuccino was the closest to those in Europe that we have had in the Denver area.
Energetic noise level does not make for a good environment. The noise level created an extremely uncomfortable environment; much too noisy for a conversation. Staff provided most excellent complimentary Garlic Knots while we waited for our reservation.
However, we did not stay for a meal due to the noise level; even our wait person had difficulty hearing.
We will only return at an "off" time but not at a typical meal time.
Great family run restaurant with good food at reasonable prices (half portions). However, can get very noisy at peak times.
Great place! Music was random for atmosphere, from Beegies to rap. The volume was a little on the higher side (at least on outdoor patio). Server was good but appeared to have to many tables. After ordering our drinks, 25 minutes went by and my wife had ask our waiter where her sangria was. Not a big deal and he was very apologetic. Food was great and garlic knots were fantastic! Will definitely be back.
This was a delightful find. We got a gift certificate and waited to use it as we had a favorite Italian place; how special could this be? Well, let me tell you: The owner, LaCinda, is a wonderful lady who is personable and attentive to the guests. She took time to come to our table to get to know us. Our waitress was well versed in the menu and had personal experience recommendations.
The food was absolutely delicious. The garlic knots were light and fluffy and the marinara sauce was full of flavor. I had the Chicken Genovese and it was very tasty; the pesto was house made, well developed and the best I have ever had. My wife had the Eggplant Rollatini based upon our waitresses recommendation and she couldn't have been more pleased.
All the food was perfectly seasoned! I salt everything, usually without tasting, because most places don't have enough flavor so I use salt to bring out the flavor. This time I tased first and it couldn't have been more perfectly balanced.
This is a must place to check out. Parking can be a challenge as it is a small lot and there are other businesses there that have reserved spots for their customers.
The evening was warm and wonderful, so we elected to sit on the patio. Our server was cheerful and pleasant, but he seemed to have too many tables. Both of our salads were room temperature so their crispy freshness and appeal were lost. My guest enjoyed her Chicken Marsala, but I found the Lasagna very disappointing. The sauce was quite good, but the noodles were gluey and thin, and the filling sparse resulting in a dish that lacked body, substance, and interest. While an attentive bus-boy refilled our water glasses, it wasn't until the very end of our meal that we were able to interrupt another server to request that our wines be replenished. In summary, we found it disappointing.
Good food, good prices and excellent service!
If you HAVEN'T been to Cranelli's yet, you are seriously missing out. It's like dining with your giant Italian family - no Italian heritage required. The food is amazing. The people are amazing. Trust me, you will never regret a night at Cranelli's.
Fabulous food and very well priced! Staff was very friendly, and the restaurant had a family-owned type of environment. Would highly recommend!
Great food and atmosphere as usual. We had to substitute champagne for our favorite prosecco but that was OK. Everyone loved their entrees and the garlic knots are the best around. There were several tables that had someone with a birthday (including ours) and the waiters got everyone to sing Happy BD which is always fun!
Great food with a varied menu. Very small restaurant and limited seating so get a reservation early.
Such a lovely and friendly place! Food is delicious!
My wife and I were looking for some good Italian after a day of travel. So glad we found Cranelli's. Was our first visit and we were both very impressed with the food and service! Will definitely make the drive back from Colorado Springs.
Great as always! Our favorite place for date night!
Make reservations!!!!!!! Everything on the menu is glorious!
As always. It was amazing. Thomas went out of his way to ensure our every need was met. We had several food allergies in our group. Shout out to Lacinda and her team.
Service and food were excellent! We felt like we were part of the family. Our friends and family from out of town always ask to come back when they visit- you just can't beat the meal or the experience! 5 stars, we will be back again and again.
Been there twice and it’s our new favorite Italian restaurant!!
We love Cranelli's! Service is fast and friendly, food is delicious, and their house wine is fabulous!
Busy restaurant... always a very friendly greeting and great, energetic service. Food was delicious. Love that there’s an option to replace pasta with spinach...it was so yummy! Will be back again soon! Definitely do not go without a reservation..
Never disappointed when I eat here. Reservation mandatory if you want a table.
