Café Jordano's is one of the best neighborhood restaurants you could go to. The staff is a little rushed but they are so busy I'm sure they are just trying to keep up with the demand. The food is always consistent, which is something we like. I always get the chicken parmesan and I've never had it be anything but... More

This place is the best for Italian. Great atmosphere, family owned business. Be prepared for a 15 - 20 min. wait. They are very popular.

We go to Cafe Jordano at least once a month! Whether we pick a usual favorite or try something new, we always leave completely full and happy because everything is amazing! Weekends tend to be a long wait, they don't really do reservations except for very large groups. Very much the Mom&Pop atmosphere. Reasonable prices for the most delicious Italian... More

So, its in a strip mall? - Fuhgeddaboudit! We've been searching for great Italian food in the Denver area for years and we finally found the real deal. We tried the mussels prepared two different ways- one in a wine sauce with fresh tomato and basil, the other in a creamy tomato sauce. Both were outstanding and the sauces were... More

My wife and I have been coming here for many years and I've never been disappointed. The food is very good and the prices are lower than what one might be used to paying for food of this quality. The cafe is quite small and the wait times can be long but the food is always worth it!

I know other people who do not go here because of the rude owner. However, I live within walking distance of this restaurant and love the idea of having a delicious Italian restaurant so close. I am not a princess, so I do not expect to be treated like one. So, I had to try it. I have been there... More

Wonderful food and service. I always get something different and every dish I have had has been excellent. The service is very gracious. I prefer going to Cafe Jordano's for lunch since I usually do not have to wait to be seated. This restaurant is an absolute favorite.

This local Italian is awesome. It's always crowded, so go early or long line waiting. Decent wine selection as well. Seafood mix, mussle, clam I had there was one of best I had!! My friend said Egg Plant Parmesan is best she ever have here as well.

We first discovered this place a few years ago when picking up take out from our favorite, now closed Chinese place a few doors down from there. There was a gaggle of folks milling around on the sidewalk waiting. I figured that was a sign. Wandering in the smells were enough to convince me that this place needed more investigation.... More

If you are a fan of food so good that you think about it for days well this is the place for you! It is a small family place. It's loud in there, but it never bothered me because the way that owner Elise treats everyone, you feel like you are in someone's kitchen with your best friends. My favorite... More
