Chef Elise Wiggins
Chef/Owner Wiggins brings decades of restaurant experience to Cattivella including a 12-year stint as Executive Chef of Panzano 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. Several lucky guests sit overlooking the pastificio (pasta table) section of the chefs’ counter while others might be seated with a view of the Butchers’ Corner where the Cattivella butchers will do their magic on beef, pork, lamb and other whole animals. The surrounding chefs’ counter seats 26 along with 74 additional interior seats and 100 seats on a wrap-around patio with stunning views of the mountains. The open kitchen provides the perfect setting for the wildly successful cooking classes that Elise continues to offer.
