Westword's Description

Maybe you've heard stories about the little Italian place in Lakewood that won't take reservations because if it did, there'd never be an open table for the neighbors, and where regulars arrive a half-hour before the start of dinner, jockeying for position and counting heads to make sure they'll get a seat. Cafe Jordano is that place, and nearly everything this restaurant does -- from the smallest touch of service to the most labor-intensive entree -- is wonderful and well-considered. The menu is classic Italian strip mall done phenomenally well by the Heitman family who have done nothing but that for the past two decades.

    Great Italian food, great service and great prices! And get there early if you're hungry...first come, first serve!

    Try the Gnocchi. Best I've ever had. Been eating there for over 10 years, favorite Italian of all time.

    First time there and the waitress suggested Pollo Bolgnese- lightly breaded chicken cutlet topped with prosciutto and mozzarella cheese in a cream sauce. So yummy! :)

    This place has my second favorite gnocchi on earth. (the 1st is a tiny Italian place in las Vegas, way off the beaten path.)
