Catering


Welcome to our Family

The tradition began with “Johnnies” on the north side of Chicago in 1952, and continued in Colorado with our first restaurant called “Red Hot Experience” in 1980. We served amazing Chicago style street food, and won several awards over the years. Our most famous restaurant in Colorado was most likely “Ristorante Catalano,” which was opened by Nonna and her husband, Joe in Greenwood Village in 2002. “Chicago Mike’s opened in 2008.” We went on to open several other restaurants over the years.

Our Bistro offers live entertainment, and a romantic atmosphere, enjoy our piano bar, while sipping on one of the many choices from our extensive wine list. Our wine menu showcases small family owned wineries with organic and biodynamic practices. Sample our handmade pizzas cooked in our wood burning oven. Savor the sweet taste of our rich Italian gelato, and create long lasting memories with a family that truly knows how to celebrate “Italian Style.”
