A suburban gem

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... read 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.

I had the best tortellini I've had since I lived in Europe! It was delicious. Service was very good and not bothersome...very attentive. Met a friend I hadn't seen in nearly 50 years for lunch and we had the best time. Prices are more than reasonable.

I like Café Jordano because I like family run places that offer good food. The prices are reasonable. The service is fast. The thing to know about Café Jordano is that they spare no calories when it comes to their white sauce. It's HEAVY with cream and cheese. No white sauce is healthy, but theirs is extra heavy. During my... More

The food was just ok. I had the buffalo with brandy cream - it lacked flavor - perhaps needed more salt or something. I think the atmosphere was nice, sort of a family-type atmosphere with big tables of folks eating and talking and enjoying glasses of wine. I can see why people go back, it's sort of a neighborhood restaurant... More
