The food here is incomparable & consistently AMAZING. There is no comparison to any other Italian restaurant in Florida. The quality of the products they speaks volumes when you take your first bite. You have to like a LOUD party like atmosphere when eating here. There is NO other place like it.

We stopped in on a Friend's recommendation and we weren't disappointed, the fresh mozzarella/tomato parfait app was light and delicious, my pasta ala vodka was on point, the Eliche pasta was cooked perfectly al dente, wine list is a little pricy but a good selection, service was great, no salt and pepper shakers on the table, the way it should...

Great venue with a great buzzy ambiance on our Sunday night visit (although I hear it can very loud Thursday through Saturdays). We sat at the bar. The cocktails were excellent, the service was excellent and the food was excellent.

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
