Well Worth the Wait; Best Italian in Town – As an excellent home chef with Italian heritage, I can vouch for the delicious food at Cafe Jordano with lots of dining experiences. I've been eating there over 15 years. Yes, you have to wait if you don't arrive right at 5, or later in the evening. Yes, the staff can be a little rushed, but it is to be expected at a bustling family owned business. So, if you want to go somewhere quiet and candlelit, this isn't the place. On the other hand, if you want delicious well-executed, Italian dishes that always taste excellent, and a fun and packed social atmosphere come here and Manga! I literally crave this place. Recommended with authority!

Fine Dining without the Fine – This is my third time to the restaurant and it keeps getting worse. Each time the wait has taken longer and longer.

Service - We arrived 10 minutes early with reservations and were still not seated until 20 minutes after the reservation (total wait 30 minutes WITH RESERVATIONS). Then it took another 20 minutes before the waiter even took our order. Service was lousy and the waiter had his head in the clouds. We had to ask several times for the "complementary" bread, drink refills, etc.

Food - I ordered Fettuccine Alfredo. It was watery and the cream sauce lacked much flavor. The portion was slightly small. My father ordered their special, Shrimp Scampi. Not only did it not have any pasta on the dish, the portion was so tiny. He had to fill up on bread afterwards.

Wine/Drinks - Their selection of wine was small and most of the wine listed had "replacement" wines instead. And if you order a soft drink, it is $1.50 and they bring you a can of soda (the same 12 oz can you can buy for $0.50).

Prices ? Our meal included salad and bread in the price. My Fettuccine was $9.25.

Overall ? I will never return to Cafe Jordano. Three strikes and you?re out. As much as I hate the chain restaurants, I would recommend Olive Garden or Macaroni Grill over this place. They are too tiny and too snooty. While acting like they are a four-star restaurant, they are far from it. They are ?Fine Dining? without the ?Fine?.

If you are looking for a great family-owned Italian restaurant, try Mama Roma's instead.

Italy meets the west.... – Great authentic italian dishes in a family-owned Italian resteraunt. One of the things that makes this resteraunt unique, however, is a selection of Buffalo Italian dishes. Not what you would call their most authentic dishes, but they are to die for.

Awesome food – I love Jordano's! The best dishes are the ones with names like "Bobs" or "Barbs". The gnochi is fabulous, as is the tiramisu! The salad is really simple, but the soup is good with bread for dipping! The atmosphere can get kind of loud, but it makes me feel right at home and you know everyone is enjoying themselves. They can get very busy on Friday and Saturday nights, so be prepared to wait! Or make reservations for parties of 6 or more.

A homey, well-priced Italian secret, tucked away in a strip mall. – In Short
The interior looks like an upgraded diner with a hint of Italy: bright yellow walls, plenty of table decorations and old family photos on the menus. Since the eatery doesn't take reservations, nightly crowds wait in available bar seats and spill out onto the sidewalk. Creative pasta sauces, chicken dishes and buffalo preparations are signature dishes. Entrees include fettuccini with Gorgonzola, buffalo scaloppini with a splash of cognac or chicken with artichoke hearts.

Yummy cheap italian – Went on 07/10/06 with my picky mother-in-law and hubby for dinner. They had been closed for a couple of weeks for vacation and this was their first night re-opening and it was busy. We got there around 8pm and waited for about 20 minutes to get a table. The service was great (but I admit it hasn't always been that way), my mother-in-law couldn't make up her mind so they took our soup/salad order while she decided. The food was really yummy, we had a shared appetizer, three entrees and a bottle of wine for $60 (not including tip) and we all loved our dishes. Can't wait to go back for more of Bob's Favorite!

Best former "hole in the wall" Italian – I've been going to this place for years and have watched them go from a tiny hole in the wall to a larger and more classy place. The food has remained the same and is some of the best Italian i've ever had. Their Chicken Marsala is AMAZING! It's a little hard to find unless you're looking for it, it's nesteled in a King Soopers strip mall in the 'burbs.

Will never eat here again – This was the worst Italian food I have ever had. The pasta was overcooked, the sauce was bland, the bread cold and the service slow.

The Best of Italy is in Lakewood! – My family and I have been dining at Cafe Jordano for years now and have never been dissatisfied. Their Mussels appetizer is wonderful and I REALLY love the Shrimp Scampi! Order it over Pasta or you will get Spaghetti on the side. The wait can be long but, always worth it! Come early and get right in except on the weekends...
