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!

I love authentic Italian food and when I got there I asked if they had my favorite dish. The waiter told me know but that he would make it for me. The dish is called Saltimboca. It was the best I have ever had. What A fantastic place to eat. I wish I lived closer to here so I could... More

We have been going to Cafe Jordano for years as it is close to our home. During the summer on week ends, people wait in line to get in. It is in a strip mall near Safeway. Don't let this turn you away because the food is outstanding. Cute place inside. Family owned. The food is Italian and sooooo good.... More

Absolutely authentic Italian cuisine beginning with the most wonderful soup, terrific pasta, good wine selection for a small restaurant, and attentive servers. It is important to either get there early or plan on waiting. A hidden gem in a Safeway center.

Amazing cream sauces, delicious buffalo dishes, and a quaint atmosphere (pictures of the owner when she was a young girl in Italy cover the walls) make this one of our favorite spots.
