About Us

Meet Jimmy and Lasinda, who own Cranelli's Italian Restaurant. They have three children - Connor, Niko and Brittany, along with their granddaughter Bethany, who is 3. They live in Highlands Ranch. Lasinda and Jimmy both have a passion for fantastic food and customer service. Jimmy's love for Italian food started in Chicago where he was born and continued on when he moved to Colorado at 13. Lasinda is from Florida and also came to Colorado at the age of 13, her passion for customer service began in the mortgage business at 19 and continued on when she entered the restaurant industry at 28.

Over the past 25 years, Jimmy and Lasinda 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 almost 7 years! They welcome you to stop in and check it out for yourself. They deliver within a 5 mile radius (weather permitting). Please either call the restaurant, click on "order now" or go onto Grubhub. Their lovely heated enclosed, outdoor patio is always available for dining year round.


Parking is limited if you are unable to find a spot in the lot, the Rocky Mountain Law Enforcement bank on the same side of the street, just to the north of us, allows our guests to park safely in their lot, it's just a short little walk. If you are here for lunch or plan to leave before 6:00pm sharp, then you can enter through the gates to the north and park at your leisure. We know that parking at the University of Phoenix is somewhat convenient but it's DANGEROUS - we do not like anyone crossing that busy road, Rocky Mountain Law Enforcement will be your best bet if here after 6:00pm. Hope to see you soon!
