    Food was only fair to mediocre. I will not be returning or recommending simply because it was way too expensive for very fair food. The atmosphere was really nice and the service was great. Out cocktails were a nice generous pour but unfortunately the food quality was not what we expected to receive when paying well above average prices.

    Dined before a concert at Hard Rock Live. Early reservation, but place filled up fast. Nice decor and bar was huge. TV screens abound juxtaposed with white tablecloths. Food quality very good. Chicken Marsala consisted of 5 well-cooked and seasoned plump, small breasts. Very tender, sided with a saffron/pea risotto. We thought that the pricing was high for that dish ($34.00). $28 should be the high end for chicken. Still enjoyed it and finished the plate.

    Booked an early reservation, because I had concert tickets at Hard Rock Live. Service was excellent get us in and out on time. we split muscles in wine sauce and the muscles were large and juicy. My date enjoyed her order of veal parmesan. I had the special chicken rollatini with a mushroom gravy. It was good just right and tasted great. We skipped dessert, but did have a cup of cappuccino before heading for the concert.

    When Martorano's opened on Ft.Lauderdale beach,it was an Italian foodie great. Now the food comes out all different times,when our 6th guest was served the first served was done! Food was average,pasta over done,fish overdone. VERY OVERPRICED for what you get.

    I was very excited to try out this restaurant for a friend's birthday and we were not as impressed as I thought we would be. The food was delicious, but it was over-priced and not phenomenal. It's like they threw in high-end menu items just to be able to say they were a fancy restaurant and charge more. Also, the music was way too loud- we could not hear the waiter or even have conversation. I understand that at 9pm it becomes a dance club but before 9pm, let us enjoy our meal & have conversation. The wine list was very good with a lot of great variety and the not the typical big name labels. The spaghetti carbonara was phenomenal but my $60 steak was not worth $60. You won't be disappointed if you go here but don't go often.

    Food was good but not great. Ordered risotto balls for an app. 5 balls about the size of a gumball for $14. We each ordered off of the specials menu which was nicely presented on a tablet. Girlfriend had stuffed shrimp, 2 nice sized shrimp with risotto,$48, ridiculous. I had Sunday italian meal, meatballs ,sausage, beef, ravioli and salad. Average portions, $42. Definitely not worth it. Not sure what the average meal is on menu, we didnt look but any place that offers specials that are so unreasonably priced is not looking for return customers.

    The food was unbelievably good. The restaurant was a little loud and the hostess attempted to seat us right next to the kitchen door and quickly sped away while we were realizing our surroundings. We went back to the hostess and asked to be re-seated. We waited about 10 minutes, had a drink and were placed at a much better location. The waiter was awesome. Quick, witty, knew the menu, and we ever waited for a drink re-fill or for anything. He was awesome and made the experience fantastic. Hats off for food and wait service.

    I took friends there for their first visit and was very rushed from the second we sat down. Tried to place an order for appertizers first, but the waiter would only let us order both apps and dinner at the same time and said the food would come out when it ready even if your main course comes out before the appertizers? What successful Restaurant does this? Tried to pick a Rigatoni Pasta with our Chicken Parm but because it comes with spagetti you can not substitute pasta? Food was good but the unfriendly waiter and fast paced service along with the difficulty ordering small changes to menu may not worth coming back for...

    This restaurant is way overrated. The service is hurried, they are not customer friendly and you definitely get the feeling that you are just a number to them. Your satisfaction is secondary to their policies and desire to turn the table. They have a captive audience in their location at Hard Rock so they will do well in spite of their unwillingness to please. One star is too many.

    We showed up at the Oakland Park location at 8pm on a Saturday night, with a reservation.... for the Hard Rock location. I was amazed that they accommodated us anyway. And I'm so glad they did! What an amazing dining experience! The food was phenomenal, the wine list very impressive. We had a delicious $115 Super Tuscan and 2 of the specials. We loved the music and ambiance. We will be back...

    food was overpriced and not that good. $5.00 for an extra bowl of gravy is out of bounds. The ambience was nice but not worth the money or food quality. Ordered 1 ceasar salad and 1 lasagna. a coke and extra sauce for the dry lasagna and it was $60. I was underwhelmed and we had to go to Wendy's to eat after.

    The service staff was top notch but they did serve her entrée before mine though by about 4-5 minutes. We shared the salad and meatball appetizer. It was good and just the right size for two. NOTE: We looked through the menu and there were several great choices. Then the waiter came over with an Ipad and slid through photos of nine different specials. They looked even better. We ordered the veal chop and the seafood pasta. The entrees on the menu were running on average $38. There were no prices on the specials. Big mistake not to ask. The veal chop was $68 and the seafood pasta was $72. Yikes. They really should let you know that without having to ask.
