A word from Martorano's Atlantic City
Martorano's combines exceptional food, music and movie entertainment to create the most unique dining experience. Enjoy our state-of-the-art sound and lighting system that sets the scene with anything from Classic R&B to Disco to today's Hip-Hop and Classic Slow Jams. Our high definition televisons throughout the restaurant show scenes from many of my favorite movies. Keep in mind the movie content may be R-rated and contains scenes not suitable for children under the age of 18. If you want to have a business meeting or family dinner join us between 6pm and 10pm when you can listen to classics from Sinatra to John Coltrane. From 10pm till 2am, the music kicks up and the party begins. If you see this concept anywhere in the world, know it began at Cafe Martorano in 1983.

    Food was amazing!! Get the meatballs - out of this world! The eggplant stack is also to die for. They have some interesting cocktails served over water ice. The Godfather is playing on a loop on all the tv screens in the restaurant with subtitles on. Fun and delicious dining experience. Highly recommend!!

    We have been here 2 other times and always bring people there for their first time. As ALWAYS the food and service were great. Quality and fresh made to order food. I can't forget to mention that on Sat night they crank up the music and then the party really starts. Gotta have the Veal Martorano. Hats off to the entire staff but we have always had Collin and Noodles as our wait staff and they are the best.

    There were two very large parties going on at the same time, and most of the wait staff seemed to be tied up with them. We waited over 10 minutes before anyone even came to our table. I thought the menu was sparse, and my husband was a little upset that he couldn't make a substitution to his selection (all the poor guy wanted was spaghetti instead of gnocchi with his chicken parm). I thought the food was overly salty, and the chicken was a little tough, but for me who loves gnocchi, I thought they were little puffs of heaven. The meatballs and gravy are okay, but again, too salty for my liking. Interesting to note, there are no salt or pepper shakers on the tables. Should have been my first clue.

    We started off by splitting a delicious, cut-with-a-fork tender veal cutlet parmigiana as an appetizer. Then enjoyed the Spaghetti D.O.P, with genuine San Marzano tomatoes, Linguine in White Clam Sauce, with amazingly fresh clams, and an excellent Branzino entree. I don't usually eat fish, but I thought it was superb. The imported Rustichella d'Abruzzo pasta is top quality and has a satisfying richness, prepared perfectly al'dente. Service is first rate, and the videos, music, DJ, charge the air with fun, laughter, and set the stage for a feast like you will find no where else in Atlantic City!

    The atmosphere was pleasant. The service was terrific. The veal parmesan was very good except the sauce was a little strong. The presentation of the specials was unique with the pictures of each dish and the explanations from the waitress was very knowledgeable. I would go there again and try a different dish next time.

    We have been there 15 times since they opened approximately 3 months ago. Best Italian-American Home Cooking we have found anywhere! On our last visit we were sitting next to a party of 10, and at the conclusion of their meal the gentleman at the head of the table, who was relatively quiet throughout dinner, made a loud comment "I was skeptical, but this was a triple A!" That said it all. The best food, great service and an energetic, fun setting. "Triple A".

    And you shouldn't refuse any offer to go to Martorano's at Harrah's Resort in Atlantic City. DELICIOUS well-prepared made-to-order Italian food that will remind of you of Nonni's cooking, but even better (don't tell Nonni!). Simple red-sauce ideas but stylish and updated. Meatball appetizer, eggplant stack, and Shrimp Bruschetta were amazing. Service was impeccable and thoughtful, provided by incredibly friendly, well-informed servers...Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett singing in the background only enhanced the experience! Celebrated my Dad's birthday there and the experience could not have been better!

    Although the food was excellent, I thought it was over-priced. In addition, the service was slow, even though there were a number of empty tables. The waitress seemed more concerned with attending to other tables with more diners rather than waiting on a single diner.

    First time visiting Martorano's in A.C. and we were very pleased. Our waiters (yes, there were two!) were very helpful and provided tons of information on the menu and the owner/chef and his background, which was interesting. The service was excellent, and the food and wine selection was very good - I'm a vegetarian and they had a couple of items on the menu I could order, both of which were tasty and unique (Eggplant Stack and Martorano Salad). My husband had the veal marsala and loved it. It's a bit pricey (we had a bottle of wine), and be warned, it's loud - especially after 10:00 p.m. when the disco music comes on and customers start dancing! But it's all good fun and something to definitely try when you're in A.C.

    Loved Martoranos but be prepared for the bill!! Very pricey but the food is fantastic. Portions are smaller than I remember when I went to the one in Vegas years ago. Eggplant stack app is excellent along with the Sunday Pork Gravy. Just like my Italian mother in law used to make. Pistachio ice cream is different so I wouldn't get it if you are used to the traditional pistachio. Service is impeccable but be prepared for your food coming to the table at different times. Food is cooked to order so it comes out as it's ready (not all together). Be prepared to pay about $100 a head but I would definitely go back for a special occasion.

    I booked this restaurant for my husband's birthday dinner. We loved the previous restaurant and wanted to try this one. When we arrived at Harrah's the day before, we read the menu and thought about going somewhere else since it did not offer a large selection. My husband said that since I planned ahead for him this would be fine. We were VERY pleasantly surprised at how delicious the meal was. I was glad to see that specials were offered. My husband had the steak special and said it was perfect. We honestly were not expecting a dining experience this delicious. We would recommend this to anyone. We are returning for Thanksgiving with friends and hope you are open for that day!

    We waited over half hour to get a table I had reserved and they also tried to give us a booth instead of a table. They did not have bread initially for us either. It was also way too noisy and we could not even converse. Club music was starting to blare in at a deafening level. Also, it took forever for a waiter to come and get our orders in. If you want to go here, better off super early and maybe not on a Saturday night. I would put maybe as a recommendation.

    The food was delicious ! The gravy was authentic tasting- not like these other restaurants that make ketchup- like gravy, you can taste the pork and clove undertones (the real deal). The staff was friendly and educational about the history of the restaurants, and the menu. I loved watching A Bronx Tale as I dined, it gave the chic setting a sense of home. We had the pork chop w/ cherry pepper sauce special and the chicken cutlet parmigiana w/ homemade gnocchi, it was so good! I will definitely be going back for round 2!

    Martorano's boasts that it has the best homemade meatball anywhere. It does. (But don't tell Ma.) In fact, it has the best Italian food in Atlantic City. That statement is made with first-hand knowledge of all the Italian eateries in the city...and there are many. Try the incredible eggplant stack, the meatball and salad, Spaghetti D.O.P., and waffles and ice cream for dessert. The vibrant atmosphere is comfortable, yet fun; dressy, yet casual; hip, yet classic. The wait staff is most attentive without being intrusive and eager to please. After 10 0'clock on Friday and Saturdays, the restaurant also features a dance floor with top tunes and beautiful people. Martorano'a was the best night we have had in Atlantic City for years!

So by me putting my request in, met nothing, they just seated me where they wanted. and we were not happy.
