We just came into town and headed to one of our favorite restaurants! It was pretty busy for a Thursday night so we decided to eat at the bar. The meatballs are the best in the planet and the gnocchi is so amazing you can't stop eating it. The shrimp scampi is consistently out of this world as it has... More

Don't waste your money. Average Italian American food and extremely rude service. They make you feel like they are doing you a favor while charging $32 for a mediocre veal parmigiana! Overrated food and sub par service. Spend your money elsewhere where you are treated with respect and made feel like a king when you spend your hard earned money.... More

Service was very good, the young man said he was new to the business about 2 years. Did a great job. Food was good to average nothing over the top. Can get loud which is not my thing, but could be yours.

if they didn't turn the lights on and literally kicked us out! OK, it was monday night -- but this is a resort/touristy city, they should just at least honor their advertised working hours. It said it was open until 12AM but at 11PM we were pushed out of the restaurant. the food was amazing! everything we tried was spectacular... More

Cafe Martorano is a haven of excellent authentic Italian dishes. Every dish on the menu has its own unique flavors. It's a wonderful party in your mouth. The ambience is elegant with melodic overtones to to give a smooth dining experience.

Last night a few close friends and I dined at cafe martoranos in ft.lauderdale. The music was amazing and so was the atmosphere. I have been here many times over the past few years, and always have a good experience. Last night on the other hand I must say was not as enjoyable. Steve and the kitchen did an excellent... More

From the moment you walk in you can feel the energy and are greeted promptly by the hostess, only to look past and see the Kitchen and dapper waiters eager to serve. With my reservation of 7 we were promptly seated by the open kitchen with a great view upon the small but bustling atmosphere. We were quickly greeted and... More

When we visited Cafe Martorano, we were given a list of specials orally described by a waiter. Two of our party of four ordered from this list of specials. The prices of these specials were not listed. The food was fine and the service was very good. However, upon getting the bill, I noted that my entree, a veal cutlet,... More

Way too loud. Felt hurried. The wine list wasn't great. The $45.00 bottle conveniently wasn't available so we had to go with the higher price bottle. We had reservations at 8 and was seated immediately. One person at our table ordered the Sunday gravy, they were out already, then he ordered another dish and that was out as well. It... More
