Centennial has options when it comes to Italian food. The city is home to some high-quality and very long-standing Italian family restaurants, where the recipes have been relatively untouched for decades and where the food is prepared from scratch. Here are four of the more notable locations to get your authentic pasta fix.

GeJo’s Original Italian Restaurant

The scoop: GeJo’s was established in 1968 in Trinidad by Carl and Angelina Galasso. The restaurant was managed by Angelina’s mother, “Granny” Mariano, and was named after her grandsons, Gene and Joe. Current day owner Dino Galasso said, “Our recipes were handed down from ‘Granny’s’ mom, ‘Nana’ Cappelucci, from her kitchen in southern Italy. In the early 1970s, the Galasso family expanded GeJo’s to include several locations in the Denver metro area. Now after 45 years, our family is back. We re-opened GeJo’s Original in February 2011 at one of our favorite locations in Centennial.” Try their WeJo happy hour special from 3 to 6 p.m. daily, which includes a WeJo pizza with up to three toppings and a choice of wine, well or draft selection for $8.95.
