Had to wait a short time, but got seated as a single at a table for four since I was next in line - very fair and democratic. This is a simple neighborhood style restaurant, nothing fancy, but good food. Wine list is limited and affordable. Would return.

Although located in a strip mall, this homey, slightly worn restaurant serves good food, fast and at a great price. Inside, you do not feel as though you are in a strip mall. Surprisingly, the restaurant was not busy when we were there for a group lunch. From the more vegetarian meals to the yummy chicken parmesan that I ate,... More

The only down side is it is small and crowded. It is fun to watch the ladies argue in Italian. The food is always good and not too expensive. Old decor and setting.

Even when they open their doors at 5 pm, there is a crowd of people who have gathered to get in. There is a reason people will wait for the best Italian food in Lakewood. Their chicken dishes can't be beat - it is always a hard decision to decide which one to get. Their Bucatini Colorati is one of... More

Cafe Jordano is located in a strip mall in Lakewood Colorado (Cross streats - Kipling & Jewell). Dpont let the location fool you. People always say the Italian food is authentic but they never come close to my Italian Inlaws prepared meals. Cafe Jordano exceeds my expectations everytime my wife and I have the opportunity to eat there. Getting seated... More

The food is amazing! Everything I have had there tasted homemade. At peak times it can be crowded so plan accordingly. It is definitely worth the wait. :)

We've been visiting this restaurant since they opened, more than 20 years ago and, if anything, it's gotten better and better over the years. The owner, who is from Italy, serves some of the best Italian fare in the Denver area, as attested to by the wall full of Zagut and other stellar ratings. Though the location is unimpressive, tucked... More

My husband and I stopped here for dinner and had a pretty good experience. We were sat right away however the server was very slow. We asked for lemon for our drinks and after 15 minutes I went to the bar to ask the bartender for the lemon. The bread had no butter and again it took forever to get... More

Neighborhood restaurant, with a wonderful variety of great Italian dishes. Great service, too. If you enjoy authentic Italian food, and a family style place to enjoy it, go to Café Jordano when you visit Lakewood.

So good. Cafe Jordano has been packing in diners since it opened. Lunch and dinner--both wonderful. One word...gnocchi!
