A word from Cafe Murano
Growing up one of 5 children in a tight-knit New Jersey family, Chef John relished the chance to work in the kitchen with his European grandmother, and it was from her that he developed his deep affection for Italian cuisine.

He cites his opportunity to work alongside Master Chef Giuseppe Formica at Hotel Giardino, in, Pesaro, Italy, as having a profound influence on his culinary philosophy.

Here at his popular upscale restaurant on Italy’s Adriatic coast, Chef John learned the delicate art of making pastas, breads and pastries a mano, and gained a finer appreciation for the importance of freshness, quality and simplicity in Italian Cuisine.

Chef John’s love of food is enhanced by his engaging personality and his love for people. Dine at Café Murano and discover a friendly welcoming atmosphere, an amazing meal and a longing to return.

Diner Reviews
  • "Food was excellent. Booths were comfortable. The outstanding point of the evening, besides having dinner with my wife, was our server. Our youngest daughter was a server for several years and we are tuned in to what a server should be.. Jamie exceeded our expectations. She was personable and friendly but maintained a high degree of professionalism. Her knowledge of the menu and recommendations were excellent. We will definitely be back. Robert"

  • "Cafe Murano has your typical Italian fair at a good price. The location at Cranes Roost makes it a hot spot for locals so its pretty busy on weekends. Food is good and ambiance nice in the dining room. The bar area is large with several TVs and dining space as well. You can also sit on the outdoor patio which has a nice view of the lake but it fills up quickly in nice weather or special events are at the park. Service varies depending on when you go and who waits on you. In my experience most servers are friendly enough but some tend to disappear once you order and its frustrating if you want another drink or something"

  • "They had a band and dancing....nice surprise! The waitress did try to rush us a bit as she brought the salads right after she brought the appetizers....it was Valentine's Day so I understand the need to turn table BUT who wants to be rushed. Anways, she was understanding and the rest of the service was PERFECT. I would reccomend this place to anyone. The fact they had dancing is a rare find now a days and I will take my spouse back just for this alone. The food was good. The place is in a great location on the lake. Overall it really was a great experience and glad i made this the spot for the holiday"

  • "We got there 15 minutes early, but our table by the window was ready. The service as excellent and the food and wine was very good. The meal was well paced, we did not feel rushed at all, even though the resturant was full. They have some wonderful deserts, so make sure you leave room to try one. I recommend the Lemoncello Italian cake. Best of all, the prices are very resonable and the portions are generous. We had a great appearance and would recommend this restaurant for any occasion."

  • "We had reservations on Valentines day, and they called us a few days prior to confirm we were still coming a nice touch. They required us to arrive 10 minutes before our reservation time to ensure prompt service and we did that and got seated right away. The place was packed. We were seated in what looked like a meeting or group room and we're introduced to our server pretty quickly. From that point on, the service was very slow but the food was awesome. The best veal picatta I've ever had and the recommendation from the server to my wife was also a delicious dish. I would de go back on a less busy day."

  • "Cafe Murano is a great place to go for the ambience, whether you sit inside, or choose to take in the lake and park view of the outdoor dining (we prefer that latter). The service is wonderful and the food is outstanding."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "We read that the restaurant was noisy but on Saturday night, I would say noisy was an understatement. We had no idea that it was going to be the Lighting of the Lights in the area and half of Central Florida would be there. It took us 30 minutes to find a parking place and then wind our way thru the throngs of strollers and people to even find the restaurant. We called the restaurant and they held our table. Joe was our server and was very professional. The food was generous and delicious. It's just that we couldn't carry on a conversation across the table because of the noise level. Great food and wine menus but no atmosphere. Maybe try outside."

  • "The food & service were very good. A screaming child did not add to the ambience. When you go out to dinner at a nice restaurant you deserve a nice atmosphere especially at 8 pm. The staff should have asked the parents to take the child out until he behaved properly."

  • "Food was excellent. Timing of delivery of child's pizza to table was poor. Parents food arrived about 5 minutes prior to child's. (% year old) Service was fair. Outdoor deck could use some sprucing up to improve ambiance. Would recommend to friends as a good spot for outdoor dining. Have gone for date night with spouse and with children. Works for both."
