A Denver-based fast-casual Italian restaurant chain is adding a location in Parker. Mici Handcrafted Italian, founded in 2005 by Miceli siblings Jeff, Michael and Kim, will open a location at 11290 Twenty Mile Road in March, according to CEO Elliot Schiffer. The 2,500-square-foot space in Parker Valley Center will seat 70 indoors and offer a 20-seat patio.

The business is known for its pizza and pasta, Schiffer said, and the fact that its menu items are derived from Miceli family recipes passed down through the generations. “The family is from Caprarola, Italy, so the menu’s inspired by that heritage,” said Schiffer, who previously was senior vice president of nontraditional development for Denver-based chain Smashburger. “You can ask about pretty much every menu item and hear the story behind it.”
