Casa Crobu

Casa Crobu delivers Italian fare with fresh ingredients, handmade pastas, and slow-cooked sauces made by husband-and-wife team Mario and Kelly Crobu. You’ll find classics like Classic Lasagna Bolognese, Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli, and Tiramisu all fresh frozen to lock in flavor and nutrients. Italy’s Sardegna island native, Mario Crobu, even offers specialty dishes from his home town such as Malloreddus alla Campidanese—Malloreddus pasta and a rich tomato based ragu with Italian sausage and mushroom topped with sheep’s milk cheese. Casa Crobu also sells their homemade pastas, sauces, and chili oil if you don’t need a ready-made meal but still want that rich home-cooked flavor.

Order deliveries occur between 10am-1pm and 1pm-4pm on Mondays and Fridays in and around Denver.
