Denver’s Best Italian Food

Come experience Gaetano’s and Denver’s BEST Italian food, it’s old-school, authentic and suburb linger in on the weekends for our famous Italian brunch.

Or treat yourself like “a boss” and cozy up to the bar with a classic gangster cocktail and soak up the retro ambiance and historic vibes of Denver’s former mobster headquarters. 

Gaetano's History

OWNER OF GAETANO’S BUYS ITS HIGHLAND PROPERTY FOR $2.6M

Ron Robinson apparently made them an offer they couldn’t refuse. Robinson, who has owned Italian restaurant Gaetano’s in Highland since 2013, now owns the restaurant’s history-laced brick building, too.

Robinson purchased the Highland properties at 3760 Tejon St. and 2018 W. 38th Ave. in late April for $2.6 million from an LLC managed by Wynkoop CEO Lee Driscoll, according to public documents.

Mmm. It was so good. We smashed dinner and didn't even get a picture.

I'm Sicilian and grew up with authentic homemade Italian food...so Italian places are hard for me. Gaetanos was a joy to go to...great atmosphere. Like old time Chicago. The garlic bread and sauce is outstanding. And a good sauce in a restaurant is hard to find...this one is great with a little bite to it which I love. We ordered meatballs for an appetizer...they were very good. Probably the best yet at a restaurant. I had chicken picatta...I thought the sauce was too runny and the chicken wasn't as moist and juicy as I expected but all the flavors were there. We also ordered lasagna...my husband loved it...very flavorful. We had a bite of our friends chicken parmesan and it was also very good. The lemon cake was good but the cannolis were outstanding. Don't let the orange flavor put you off you can hardly taste it. I loved this place and am happy to say I finally have a regular spot to go to. Looking forward to trying more of their menu next time. We've been back a number of times since my first review...their sausage is outstanding, loster ravioli is exceptional and gnocchi was amazing. My fav place to eat Italian BY FAR.

My only complaint - and believe me this place is awesome and could be my regular spot, if only they could just fix the ratio of sauce to pasta…just too much sauce OR give me more pasta. That’s all! Much love to Gaetano’s, I’m a big fan.
