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.

    Should have known this place was not a good choice when I got the bill for my "angel" (glorified margarita) cocktail at the bar... $16.50!!! Dinner was incredibly slow (we were two people at 10pm). It took us 1:45 to get out of the place. We ordered two pasta dishes and a side of meatballs... All of the dishes came out separately with about 10 mins in between each coming out. When my husband complained the manager offered us free dessert (gee thanks). The dessert was pretty good but it did not make up for our mediocre Sunday gravy rigatoni and penne aka vodka. Also meatballs- yeah not so great. Better off going to Carmine's in tropicana or Mia in Caesars.

    Maybe I was expecting too much...but I heard how the other Martorano's were so neat with the decor and the TV's with mob movies, etc and how great the food was...well, I was disappointed. The menu was rather small and the decorum was the same as when it was Luke Palladino's place except there were TV's..Plus it was so loud that we could not even hear each other when talking. The food was just mediocre at best. And why they would give a couple Asian type chicken wings as an appetizer is beyond me...why not something Italian? Plus this is supposedly an upscale place, we are all dressed up...the last thing we want to handle are sticky Asian type chicken wings. Normally I wouldn't comment but it was such a let down...just sayin'

    Best meatball I have ever tasted, however not worth $22.00. Maybe if there were two and really big, it might be worth it. The food was outstanding, i will definitely give him that, but way too pricey. It's a place to go and experience, but too expensive to keep returning to. As I listened to surrounding tables they had the same complaints to the waiters. However, I wish him the best of luck.

    Food was very good, a bit pricey for the serving size. It was kind of funny watching 'The Godfather" on every TV screen in the restaurant and when the scene of the movie family having their 'family style' dinner our 'family style' dinner was being served at our table. I doubt if Don Corleone would be impressed with the portions of our family dinner. Portion size aside, the service and most importantly the food was excellent.The Meatball Salad is a must, simple and great tasting. Another small hiccup for us. Our area is noted for some of the best Italian bread on the East Coast yet we were served fresh but very nondescript bread with our dinner. We really enjoyed our overall experience at Martorano's.

    Food was tasty and the service was quick and everyone was very knowledgeable about the menu. Make sure you either call or check the menu, as well as ask about the specials. The menu is not the same everywhere and could change every week because they do test new items in the market. The noise level was very low and we also received a taste of their pasta, which was great, that was sent to us by the chef. The desert with the wafles and ice cream was amazing and was the perfect ending to the night.

    Service was terrible- all too young and inexperienced. Three tries to get the correct bottle of red wine ordered. Asked for an additional glass of white and was brought the bottle, told the server and he never corrected, served and left the bottle and charged us for a bottle! Added 1$ to the price of vegetable on the menu. Food came out so quick (much before the right bottle of wine came) that I couldn't inhale it quick enough. Not a nice food dining experience at all! Asked for a manager which also took 10 minutes (he offered us desserts on them). Food was very tasty! I just wish we could have enjoyed what we were eating more and with our wine. Room turned dim at 9:45 for the DJ to start up. Good music. Fun but better with light fare.

    Our dinner this weekend at Martorano's was the best meal that I have had out in quite some time. From the cocktails, the wine list and the food, everything was perfect. The meatballs tasted just like my Italian mother-in-laws and the calamari and the carbonara were he best I've ever tasted.

    The buzz about this place was really good so when we purchased concert tickets at Harrah's, we thought it would be a perfect time to give Martorano's a try. Food was excellent, the service was great and the decor and ambiance is very contemporary and clean. We highly recommend the calamari as an appetizer for two. If you like Italian food, you won't be disappointed.

    What a great addition to the Atlantic City casinos. Love the restaurant in Fort Lauderdale, and this is just as good. The restaurant is beautiful and not as loud as the Fort Lauderdale restaurant, which is a plus. Only complaint was that all our dinners did not come out at the same time, making some of us wait while the others got their food. Will definitely go back.

    If you want to be a big winner in Atlantic City go to Martorano's. It is the best Italian-American Home Cooking in Atlantic City by far, and late at night becomes a high energy club with a DJ, great music, video screens and a pulse pounding sound system. You can dance the night away til the early morning hours. Steve Martorano's team led by General Manager Nick makes everything work flawlessly so you can enjoy every minute. It is outstanding dining accompanied by high energy fun! It puts the 'special' in special occasion!

    The food was very expensive and didn't live up to the costs. An appetizer of two meatballs with ricotta was $22. They were pretty good but not stellar. Vodka and citron $20? We had 4 specials at the table of veal sinatra and they were $58 each. The portions were small and while the small lobster was cooked well, the veal was just fair. My friend had the seabass which lacked flavor in my opinion. Service was for the most part good but for the price of the food I wouldn't go back. I have eaten better meals at other high end establishments in AC for a lot less. We had a crowd of 7 and our bill was $850 - no sides, just entrees, two desserts, three bottles of wine ( nothing crazy) and maybe 8 cocktails at the table.

    This is the best restaurant in Atlantic City. Even though it's categorized as "Italian", hands down the best. This restaurant alone will keep people coming to Harrah's. Harrah's hit the mother lode. Any given night, you can see a celebrity or athlete having dinner and dancing. Great place to people watch.

    My friend and I found the restaurant to be very noisy. We could not have a conversation across the table. The food was good. However, there was a Halibut special which we ordered and later found out that the price was $58.00, which we thought was outrageous! All there was was a piece of fish and some broccoli rabe. We could have eaten better at the steakhouse for less money and we would have been able to hear our conversation. We will never go back there. P.S. There were no prices on the dessert menu either and $14.00 for a piece of cake is too much.

Had the Home-style Philly Cheese Steak made with Prime Ribeye, Carmelized Onions and American Cheese. Better than in Philly! Linguine in White Clam Sauce with the freshest Clams, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Fresh Garlic, Italian Parsley and Chili Flakes. The first time we had it my wife dreamt about it the next night! Veal Cutlet Parmigiana with Sunday Gravy and Homemade Mozzarella was cut with a fork delicious. Spaghetti D.O.P. with certified San Marzano Tomatoes, Garlic, Basil, D.O.C. Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese-simple and superb. Go and have delicious dreams!

    Food was absolutely amazing and couldn't have asked for better Italian food. Wait staff was great and attentive (if you get Debbie and Roberto you will love them). Courses were served and timed great. We came to eat and that is what did, started with the meatball salad and eggplant stack - continued with the linguine with white wine clam sauce and each finished with the chocolate cake and red velvet, OMG!! Also, got a special small plate sent over from Steve himself, couldn't have asked for a better dinner and/or night!!! I will definitely be dining again at Martorano's, wish my second night hadn't been cancelled because I was dying to eat there again (but I completely understand because they scheduled their grand opening party).
