Extensive pasta menu

What I have enjoyed the most is that there is a good variety to the menu. Some less often seen dishes are available here. I was also able to substitute an aglio e oglio side dish of pasta for the usual marinara, which was a nice change.

This is my father's favorite Italian restaurant to take the family when we all gather for family reunions. (We are German in heritage so....) I like that there is a great selection. the meals are moderately priced and although the atmosphere is 1960 suburb neighborhood that is kind of what you what when you are catching up with your goof...

Good food with generous portions. Service was adequate. Not overly friendly, but adequate. The busboy was very polite. They brought out the food for 9 guests in waves of 2 and didn't know who got what. Was a little difficult to understand what they were saying. That being said, everyone in our party enjoyed their entree.

I'm a bit of snob about eating in suburbs where it's typically chain restaurants, but that snobbery had no business at Cafe Jordano. Wow - super good! I took a group of 4 there prior to a theater event nearby and was not disappointed. Every one of us loved our dinner. The service was great, too. The server had an... More

I myself usually have Bob's Favorite, but am often tempted by the specials. Have had out of this world salmon, seafood pasta and others. Food is always fresh, delicious and served in timely fashion even when busy. Our guests always ask for a return visit - I think they are coming to town just for this! Locally owned and operated....

I have had lunch and dinner at Cafe Jordano. I usually order a chicken dish. My favorite is Pollo Saparito. Description: chicken breast with white wine, artichokes and mushrooms, in a red sauce with a splash of cream. The chicken is very tender and the sauce is perfect. A side of spaghetti is served with marinara sauce. The service is... More

My wife and I live right around the corner from this place and it is excellent. I've actually never sat down in the restaurant but have placed take out three times. I don't think there's one item on the menu I don't like. All the ladies working there are pleasant and the orders have been quick to deliver and pleasant.... More

I have been a Jordan's fan for over 15 years and they seem to just get even better with time! My current favorite is mussels and shrimp Franco which surpasses any meal I have had in Italy over the years and cost less than $15. Not fancy, just great food at a reasonable price. Get there early the word is... More

A friend of ours recommended Cafe Jordano as their favorite Italian restaurant, so we've been wanting to give it a try. It definitely lived up to our expectations, even after all their raving! We left talking about what we want to try on the menu next. Cafe Jordano looks very unassuming from the exterior and it's location in a strip... More

The food is excellent. I usually order the Buffalo Al Jordano. It's pretty noisy at least on the weekends. It's a small place. You need at least 6 people to make a reservation otherwise I can guarantee you will have to wait to get in on the weekend. They are also open for lunch during the week.
