This is one of my boyfriend's favorite restaurants. To be honest, I think it's good but not jaw-dropping. It's not impressive from the outside -- it's in a strip mall in Lakewood. The first time I went I had a chicken dish with a very uninspired alfredo sauce. I was disappointed. This past time (last week) I had a lasagna... More

We went with another couple, making a group size of four, on Saturday night at 7:00 it was about a 25 minute wait. The waiting area was small, but it wasn't too cool out so there was plenty of room out front to wait. The hostess was very nice, and did well about checking outside for waiting parties, she was...

I had lunch there with a group of 12. I ordered the Pollo Elegante and it was incredible. All of our groups' meals looked amazing. Cost - $8.50 each. I can't wait to go back. I got there at 11:30 and there were still plenty of tables open, but it filled up by noon. All of their food is Italian;... More

Don't let the strip mall location discourage you from trying this restaurant. It's the real deal with authentic Italian food. A personal favorite is "Bob's Favorite," a chicken breast in a white wine sauce with asparagus a Ned three cheeses. A side of pasta with tasty marinara sauce comes with the dish. Other favorites include lasagna and gnocchi.

Great food, attentive service ..... all at VERY affordable prices. Believe it or not - one of the best clam chowders ( lived in RI for 10 years ) - ever. The food, from appetizers through our main courses was very/very good .... and even better when one considers prices. The menu was unique - yet classically Italian ... sauces... More

We have never been to Cafe Jordano where there hasn't been a wait but the food is well worth the wait. Our wait was about 25 minutes and we were seated at a corner table near the kitchen. Our server was friendly and brought waters and bread immediately to our table. We ordered a bottle of Chianti and our food... More

It is so hard to rate a restaurant like this. For value its five stars, for breadth of menu its also five stars, and the grin on my 18 year old step daughter's face when she saw the menu helped explain the full car park in the suburban car park where no other retail tenants were open. It was not... More

My wife and I have been looking for a really good Italian restaurant in Denver since 1999, and except for Carraba's and Olive Garden have yet to find one. Last night we ate at Jordano's, and while my wife's dish was acceptable, I was disappointed. The spaghetti sauce was awful, no complexity at all--it was as if it had been... More
