About Us

Meet Jimmy and Lasinda and their three children – Brittany, Connor & Niko, with their newest addition to the family - Bethany, Brittany’s daughter who was born in July of 2017. Jimmy and Lasinda live in Highlands Ranch. They started their passion for food and customer service at the young age of 15 and never looked back. Jimmy's love for Italian food started in Chicago where he was born and continued on when he moved to Colorado at 13, where he became a dishwasher at a local Italian mom & pop in Lakewood. Lasinda is from Florida and also came to Colorado at the age of 13.

Over the past 20 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 10 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 will keep Cranelli's thriving for years to come, they welcome you to stop in and check it out for yourself. 


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 here for lunch or plan to leave before 6:00pm sharp, then you can enter throught 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 best if here after 6:00pm. Hope to see you soon!
