Cafe Jardano

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... read 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

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

This has got to be the best Italian restaurant in the Denver metro area. Bob's favorite is to die for. I have never been to this restaurant and had a bad experience. FANTASTICO!!!!!!

I have been here several times & ordered something different each time. Every meal has been wonderful. Worst part of dining here is that because it is so good, it is crowded.

I'm sorry, but maybe this is a matter of rating it based on other Italian options, and I'd say it's better than Olive Garden, but that's not saying much. Their gnocchi was overcooked, ravioli so undercooked the cheese was still hard in spots, their "famous" cream sauce is very bland and boring. They don't offer caesar salad- only a plain... More
