Great Food!

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

I went to this restaurant because it got really good reviews on Trip Advisor so I figured I will give it a try. The service was really good, we had an actual Italian server that was very attentive and helped me choose my main dish. We started with some drinks, they have a nice wine menu, most wines were from... More

This fantastic restaurant is only five minutes from my neighborhood and I have been eating here for about twenty years. In my opinion, if you love Italian cooking and reasonable prices, you will love this great restaurant. This is where I take most of my out-of-town friends. If you go once, you will be hooked!

The service is nice. The atmosphere is okay. But the food is marginal at best. They don't have a lot of competition, so locals think this is amazing Italian food. They don't hold a candle to even an run of the middle Italian restaurant in an city with any sort of Italian conclave. They cover up the poor quality food... More

I was invited to join a friend for dinner while I was on a business trip. This was superb in all respects. The staff was attentive, cheerful and helpful and the food was the best. Loved every element and will definitely go back. My wife is Italian and I cannot wait to take her there. It was busy and there... More

Went with a friend who is a regular and after about a ten minute wait, we were seated. The place isn't that big and it was full to capacity on a Wednesday evening. Wine had to be ordered at the wine bar and then we took I to our table. They have several buffalo entrees and I decided on the... More

Great Italian in Lakewood? Who would have thought LAKEWOOD of all places would be a place for such an bad@$$ resto. It's small and family oriented and always packed for dinner, so come early or be prepared to wait a bit. If you come there for lunch, you'll have a much better chance of trying their entrees, getting a taste... More
