To mistake Juan and Katie Padró's Italian eatery, which opened right next door to their Highland Tap & Burger in the fall of 2015, for just another wood-fired pizza joint would be to miss out on the Italian and Italian-American fare from chef-partner Max MacKissock, who not so long ago thrilled Denver palates at the Squeaky Bean. This time around, MacKissock is channeling his younger days as a chef in Italy and New York, creating speidini (skewered meats), fettunta (similar to bruschetta) and hand-made pastas dressed in traditional sauces. Add to that a long, stately bar serving Italian wines, beers and spritzes concocted with house-made sodas, and you've got the hottest thing going in LoHi.
