    I'm afraid I never heard of Martorano's, but I'm so glad we found it on our recent trip to Vegas. The appetizers were so good we knew the main meal would be as well, and it definitely was. The octopus was the all around favorite. Bought the cookbook/storybook as well when we left.

    We were seated - service was slow to even come by and ask for the drink order - sat for almost 10 minutes without seeing a waiter - music an kitchen noise was so loud that my wife and I had to yell at each other. We got up and left. No one even noticed.

    Being our first time and the hotel recommended the restaurant but didn't mention the high noise and music level. We were there in the evening and where we were seated there was poor lighting to be able to see the menu. Got out flashlight, waiter finally came over and lit extra mini candles. This helped some, but still hard to see the food. Unfortunately my sea bass came cold, and while the sauce on the side was warm I sent back the fish and waited another 5-10 minutes for a reheat. Manager, I think was stopping at other tables but never came over to us. Rio's focused on the "card members" as they were taken and seated first and we were left waiting with out an explanation. Our waiter was excellent and prompt service.

    Great food; but extremely pricey; $15 for one meatball?? However, the Rigatoni Pork was excellent and I enjoyed the dinner very much. The biggest disappointment was the fact that they were showing "Casino" on the HDTV's. If anyone ever saw the movie, you would not think it is appropriate for dinner.

    We were going to see a show at the Rio and wanted to dine there as well. Despite a low rating on Urbanspoon, we decided to give this one a try - and we were very glad that we did! The ambiance is sleek NY and the food is wonderful Italian comfort food. If you like the food on Arthur Ave in NY, don't miss this place.

    Came to Martaranos with a group, and everyone left satisfied. We had the meatball appetizer and calamari both of which were excellent. 2 had the sea bass which was succulent and full of flavor. I had the lasagna, which was also fabulous. We topped it off with the chocolate cake, which was also delish.

    We ordered two antipasti items, the homemade meatball with gravy, ricotta cheese and Martorano salad and the eggplant stack (after watching the chef making it on one of the big screen TVs. Both were excellent. We were given a flashlight to read the menu. Noise level was off the charts, with a deafening bass beat. We couldn't even talk during dinner.

    The extremely loud clubby music just does not fit with the food and ambiance of the restaurant. The food is always good, but since I need a place to bring customers I will probably not return. We could not have a decent conversation without practically yelling. I'm sure I missed most of the conversation on the other side of the table as well.

    Stopped by the location at The Rio, Las Vegas to try something new; we were very impressed. Although, they ran out of meatballs (warning, they must go fast!) our other options were delicious! From the eggplant stack to the side truffle fries, everything we tried was amazing. Would definitely recommend and go again!

    Would have liked to have sat by the window and at least looked out at the pool. We were seated right in the middle of the room. The mushroom in the chicken Marsela tasted like they were canned. The chicken hadnt marinated long enough in the wine. Wasnt as flavorful as I have had in other restaurants here in Vegas. The price for the Ala Carte dining was very high. We split and salad and had to order rice to go with our meal. Dinner for two should not be 150. with one bottle of wine. The wine wsnt that expensive and it wasnt the same year as stated on the menu. I wont be back.

    Since we were going to a show at the Rio Casino, we decided to give Martorano's a try. The menu looked promising and their kitchen delivers on that promise PLUS. We don't often eat at Italian restaurants when we travel since we're from Philly and most "resort" Italian restaurants are weak as compared to what we get back home. NOT Martorano's !! The food is just like home and their kitchen is imaginative and very skillful in the food preparation. My only complaint was the noise level is high and the revolving colored lights gave my spouse a headache. We would return to eat there again. I believe that they are opening a second location inside the Paris casino, hopefully it will be as good as this restaurant is.

    Foodie10
    Dined on 9/4/2014
    The food was good, but...the menu says no substitutions. I am lactose intolerant, and when I asked for something beside the risotto with cheese sauce, I was told that they would change that for me to the spinach this time, but never again. I almost said, then we'll never again come here, but I didn't. During dinner, there was a movie playing on the many screens around the restaurant, with Al Pacino. All of a sudden, a graphic rape scene came on screen. Not something to watch while eating. When we complained to the hostesses, we were told that the chef/owner wants the place to have a "Godfather" atmosphere, and as for children, they're discouraged from eating there. Not a way to run a business.

    Dined on 8/12/2014
    While the food was excellent and the wait staff attentive - the order was not sent to the kitchen correctly. I wanted the meatball appetizer that came with a small Matorano's salad. I'd seen a picture on the internet and was excited try it. What I got was a full salad (enough for a meal) and a full meatball entrée. The menu itself could have been at fault but I didn't see a reason to make a fuss. The other unfortunate incident was a shrieking child two tables away - who's parents appeared to be deaf. A tough situation for managers and wait-staff. This really wasn't a child designated restaurant, but alas some adults don't care if their lack of responsibilities ruin the evening of an entire room of people. I lasted an hour...

    When dining alone, it takes a special kind of restaurant to make you comfortable... It can be awkward, because everything is set up for couples. Martorano's went out of their way to make me feel comfortable while enjoying some contemporary Italian food. I had a commanding view of the room, and my water glass needed only to dip a fraction of an inch before it was once again filled. They start you off with a piping-hot complimentary bread service, featuring olive oil with and without hot pepper for your spreading / dipping pleasure. Appetizers are worth trying, especially their eponymous house salad, which had some of the only edible tomatoes I've ever seen in a restaurant. The rest of the meal was full of flavor and prepared well.

    Ella
    Dined on 8/1/2014
    Let's start with the fact that they got one of the dishes wrong and three of us were eating dinner while a fourth was waiting an additional 20 minutes for a corrected dish. Which then we were not comped and we're expected to pay $30 for a plain, unimpressive pasta dish (we argued over it and they comped it). Add to that the gaggle of cackling bachelorette party "ladies" (and I use that term very loosely) and food that gave us an upset stomach later that night and you get a horrible restaurant I would not come back to even for free.

    When my girlfriend showed me a picture of the meatball on Instagram I knew I had to go to this restaurant. The process to book a table was easy through OpenTable and even though I was late for my reservation the hostess got us seated after just a few seconds. I was there with my girlfriends celebrating her birthday and I let the hostess know as we were being seated that I would like to do something special. Later, the waiter came over to me and showed me the desserts that they had to offer on a tablet, privately. My girlfriend thought it was weird that he was showing me something. Our food (salad, meatball, pasta) in ample portions was amazing. And her surprise cheesecake with sparkler made her night.

    Perhaps we selected wrong, but just shy of $200 for two people...ouch! Had the "famous meatball" appetizer, which comes with salad. Great! Could have been dinner! All sides to main entre extra. Ordered the "special" seafood linguine, didn't ask price...$53.00 and house chianti (which was good) at $46.00. You see how fast it adds up. Ambiance at Fort Lauderdale location, much better.
