Amazing Pizza! Super fresh salads!
We like coming here to eat outside by the water. The pizza is just amazing (love the pancetta!) and they use fresh field greens for their salads. They offer a variety of veggie sides and healthy options along with supper yummy decadent dishes. I did not care for the sautéed calamari I got, but our server was quick to offer it in a marinara sauce and that transformed it. Every time we go here, we are very pleased with our selections. The fish special is always wonderful.
The only thing I do not care for is smoking is allowed outside. It gets pretty bad at times and can ruin a dinner.
Must try the pizza!

We had a wonderful meal after
We had a wonderful meal after an evening movie. Location is great as it overlooks cranes roost and right next to theater so we only had to park once. Staff was very friendly and atmosphere is wonderful.

Excellent lake front Italian
Food is excellent, particularly very tender veal. Chicken Parmesan also very good. Pizza fine but nothing special. Very nice setting overlooking lake.

Fun for a group
On a busy Friday night, the outside patio is away from the noisy bar scene but captures the excitement.
The food is terrific, the service is fats, friendly and accmmodating. Cafe Murano is great!

Outstanding food & service
My husband, daughter & I dined at Cafe Murano last Friday and were extremely impressed. We have been here once before, about a year ago, but this visit far surpassed our expectations. The service was second to none & the food was excellent, fresh & homemade. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a visit & can't wait to come back.

A great waterfront spot
We live about a hour away from Cafe Murano and only go there when we attend SmoothJazz concerts at Cranes Roost park. If we lived closer we would go more often. We love the food and love to dot at the bar and watch the pizzas being made. The guy that makes them is a master. I've never had a bad meal there and love that they have music too.

Consitantly great food
Cafe Murano is known for consistantly good food. From wood fired pizzas to pasta and seafood dishes, we have never been disappointed. Sitting on the lake side patio is one of the best spots for North Orlando area residents. The susnsets spectacular. The staff is always friendly and helpful One of our favorite dining spots!

We enjoy this restaurant as it sits adjacent to a lake/park, one can choose to eat inside, outside, in a bar atmosphere, or in the quieter table area. They have light appetite sizes as well as family-style size. We have consistently had friendly service & wait-staff who are wiling to be sure that everyone enjoys their meal. The variety of parking areas as well as a valet option makes it convenient for all patrons.

What a *great* surprise
My wife, my 8 year old doughter and I went to Cafe Murano for the first time this very last saturday.
The experience was great, Ryan took a very good care of us all. The food is great, but sitting by the patio with the uptown water view is awsome! Just too bad they were out of Sam Adams regular on tap, but nothing that could even scratch our great experience.

great all around
Cafe Murano has something for everyone. Try and get a booth or outside table or late night maybe a high top in the bar area which has a lively scene with entertainment. Great find on opentable!

The service was the best. Thanks Diana. Food was good and lots of it. Noisy and energetic but a fun place. The band (The Franshise Players) was great and really engaged the crowd. We'll be there again.

Fun evening with friends
Cafe Murano is a great place to enjoy a good meal with a group of friends. Weather permitting the outside dining is fabulous. The water views are beautiful. Variety of menu choices were excellent. Our group of 6 thoroughly enjoyed our entrees, most with enough for leftovers. We chose to sit in the lounge area as we specifically came to enjoy the Downbeat Band. Entertainment was great. Service was exceptional, very attentive and friendly wait staff. Will definitely return in the future.

Finally Found Good Italian Food
First time I've been here and best Italian food I've had in Central Florida after 8 years of searching. I used to live in CT so I was spoiled by the good Italian in New England. From the tasty,warm bread with oil, to the salad to the Lasagna Romo I was very impressed with the food. Service was good but not spectacular.
Only negative was the pounding music in a half full dining room around 6 PM.

I am not sure who our two
I am not sure who our two servers were, but they truly gave incredible service, both had great personalities , and were some of the best we have had there!
Food , atmosphere, service, all were five stars!!!
Keep up the great work.

We always enjoy Café Murano. Whether you just want pizza (watching the master tossing the dough is fun) or a great salad or a fabulous appetizer, entrée or dessert, they are all wonderful here. The bartenders are masters and came up with a Fabulous Key Lime Martini. Yum It was like dessert in a Martini Glass. We like a window table if possible because the view of the Lake is beautiful. Also, great entertainment and dancing if you want. It has everything.

Great Food, Good View
Cafe Murano was chosen for its location on Crane's Roost in Altamonte Springs. Romantic ambiance would have been better if they lost the TVs in the dining area. Nice music would have been a MUCH better choice. Food was excellent! Our table service was good. They gave us a window seat like I wanted, unfortunately Florida weather decided that the nice sunset view I had hoped for wasn't going to happen that night. Of course that isn't the fault of the restaurant. Overall it was a VERY enjoyable experience and we definitely would go back again.

the food and service at Cafe Murano are dependably excellent! Try the shrimp francesse, eggplant al forno, margarheta pizza and lemoncello cake...delicious!

Very nice evening
We were entertaining Eurpoean friends., Our food was excellent and our waiter Eric couldn't have been any better

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.

Loved the atmosphere
If you are seeking great food at very reasonable prices, look no further. The view ov the lake and energetic environment are superb. If you want a quieter environment, it is there too! We had a great time and will visit them often.
