Best Gravy and Meatballs!
The food was outstanding, it was so good, that the first time I was there was because a vendor brought us there. We had an excellent time and got to enjoy quite a spread, it was amazing. Then, a few days later, my husband and I cancelled reservations at another local restaurant to go back to Martorano's. I also ordered the cookbook...incredible!

Fantastic food! Attended
Fantastic food! Attended the Penn & Teller show and decided to try Martorano's without knowing much about the food or restaurant itself. Very pleasantly surprised. Only downside - noise. Music was quite loud at times, more like a night club, making it difficult to talk with others at your table especially if they were across from you.

Martorano's was fabulous! Everything from the decor, to the service and not to forget THE FOOD. Everything was great but I must brag about their eggplant stack and their meatballs! The stack is under the appetizers but can be a meal. The flavors of the balsamic, mozzarella, arugula ,.....AWESOME! The meatball is huge, delicious and served with a wonderful sauce.
If you want a nice night out with great service and great food you won't be disappointed. The only odd thing but after going there every time we are in town it's grown on me, is that Scarface plays on all the screens with no sound because they have music. Now when we walk in we try guessing at what scene it's at.

Only thing we didn't enjoy was the constant green strobe light beaming in our faces...

Great Italian food. Everything is fresh. A great place.
5/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food is top notch Italian. Do NOT as for any substitutions because the chef will not adjust his dishes in any way. They keep mob movies playing in the background. It's an overall great experience.

A great place
My third visit to this restaurant and it seems to get better every time I go. The dining experience is one that I will not miss when I plan a trip to Las Vegas.

Went on a Tuesday night at 8 and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. Reasonably priced, nice dark lighting and beautiful view of the pool. Food was very tasty. Would go again...
6/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
We love the food and the ambience is old school party. We always take out of town guests. It is a super evening out dining spot.

It was fabulous!
Dinner at Martorano's was one of the best meals I have had in my life. Making a reservation was easy to do on my smart phone. They easily accommodated a group of seven. The service was relaxed and professional. The signature martinis were delicious. But most importantly, the food was fantastic. The salads were great and every entrée was spectacular. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a memorable and divine meal.

Most recent experience...
My most recent visit was less than expected from previous experiences. The food was excellent however the the music was very loud this time making it impossible to have conversation and the service was less than satisfactory as our table was only waited on when our order was taken and the food delivered to the table. As this is a favorite, I will revisit.

Best Italian in Vegas
Hands down the best italian in town. The specialty meatball appetizer was divine, perfectly textured, full of flavor, and perfectly complemented with the sweet grilled peppers and "gravy" (which approximates a rich, italian tomato-based sauce). The Penne Vodka was superb! The pasta was al-dente, the sauce carried full flavor with just the right thickness/thinness, and even the shalots and onions were pre-sauteed exquisitely. The fresh ingredients used were obviously fresh, and everything was magnificent. The service was very satisfying. The waiter interaction was just right, and very pleasant.
6/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
We eat here every time we come to Vegas, sometimes twice in a trip. All the food is so delicious & the service is excellent . I highly recommend this place for fabulous Italian food!!!
6/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
My dining experience exceeded all of my expectations! The quick seating and service, the quality of the food, and our server Ben made the night amazing! Thank you, Martorano's, I'll be back!

What a meatball! Great food;
What a meatball! Great food; better than expected.
The tables are large which great, however, do to the noise level it was difficult to carry on a conversation. After the dinner, we complained to the waitress about the noise level. Her response was chef liked it that way. If chef likes it that way, then he should spend some money on a little acoustical treatment and a good sound system. With the technology today, it is possible to create an energetic ambiance that is not deafening.
An otherwise perfect meal was overshadowed by the ambience (most notably the noise level).
All that said, we would don our earplugs and go back for more.

Brenda was my server and was spectacular! This is a great "philly" style restaurant, but the cuisine is fit for anyone wanting quality experience and Home-cooked Italian. "Yo Cuz!"
7/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very satisfied with everything my wife and I ordered! Top notch possibly some of the best food I have ever eaten!
Only down fall is I can't afford to eat their more often.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place had great food but the solicitation during dinner was a bit annoying

Real Italian Flavor
The experience of dining at Martaranos was excellent. The Italian food was incredible and the service great. I would recommend it to anyone
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had dinner for my husband's 65th birthday. The food was very good and the main course portion was huge.

The ft. Lauderdale location
The ft. Lauderdale location is one of my favorites. Here in Vegas, was a little more quiet and less energy. The food was amazing as I would expect.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed the Hard Rock Fort
Enjoyed the Hard Rock Fort Lauderdale location many times. Great food, service and ambiance. First time at the Las Vegas location. Enjoyed the food. Will try it again!
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were in-town and enjoyed dinner. Portions were large could not finish. Food was fresh.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT! Amazing food, friendly and attentive service, can't really ask for a better restaurant experience. If they are running the Chilean sea bass special - GET IT

Incredible Food - Really Noisy
While the food has been incredible every time we have eaten here and I do highly recommend the Chicken parmigiana and the risotto, the noise level was incredibly high by the time we finished dinner. Our reservation was at 6:30pm and by the time we left at 8:30pm I could barely hear the person across the table from me and we were only at a table for 4. I was quite disappointed by the noise level and it will make me think twice about choosing to have dinner here despite how much I love the food and service.

After spending a few hours
After spending a few hours reading reviews I had to try this place. The service was amazing. We ate early so it was not too loud. The later it gets the louder the music gets. The best part of all was the food. If you are looking for great tasting Italian, it's a must have. We ordered multiple items and did it family style, so we could try multiple items. The spaghetti and Philly cheesesteak were my favorite. It can be a little pricey but I don't mind paying more for such great quality food.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome as usual!
Cannot say enough great things about this restaurant - there are two locally where I live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida! And the service and food could not be better! Just like at home :-)
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We loved the food and our
We loved the food and our service was fantastic. The music was VERY loud - and surprisingly the restaurant and bar were empty - which did not add to the fun. But from a pure food standpoint - fabulous!!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
A little bit of everything!
We were thrilled to be able to order lots of different item that were fantastic! The meatballs & salad was delicious, the eggplant stack is not to be missed, the gnocchi in cream sauce was light & like grandma's, the mozz & Parma ham incredible.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Meatballs and more
Martorano's was very good. How good are his meatballs? They were great, just like Grandma's. I would recommend Martorano's if you are looking for good Italian food.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
While staying at the RIO we happened upon this restaurant. What a find! Rice ball apps were awesome and the red sauce is as good as my family recipe from Sicily. Service is spot on but not intrusive. We will be back in Vegas in two weeks at another hotel but it will be well worth a cab ride to dine there again.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place was so yummy, it will be hard to find a restaurant in our hometown that even remotely compares! Best food we ate the entire time we were in Vegas!
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Been wanting to try this place for a long time. Wish I had come sooner. Food and service were fantastic. Prices are a bit high, but you get what you pay for. Will return.

YO CUZ, True South Philly Cooking
You & your food are a knockout!!
Having dined at two Cafe Martorano locations, Rio Las Vegas, NV & Fort Lauderdale, FL. Martarano's will always be my arriving & departing meals when visiting Florida & Las Vegas!!
Every bite was a memory of Nonni at the stove while we built up our appetites playing half-ball down the street in South Philly!!
An old neighborhood friend, Steve cooked many dishes for us from pasta & fish to his infamous meatballs. I could say one dish was better than the other but they weren't!! Everything he prepared for us was absolutely fantastic, more than plentiful & served by his top notch, knowledgeable staff!!
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service and
Great food and service and location. Pasta to die for.

Great Italian food
Pleasantly surprised! Usually I do not like to go Italian restaurants away from home because I'm disappointed. Not here. They are right about the meatballs. Excellent! I had the veal parmagiana (spelled wrong, I know) and it was cooked to perfection. Our waiter was attentive and wasn't working to pad his tip. He genuinely enjoyed working there. The wine list was okay. Not too extensive. We ordered a bottle of 2006 Brunello at about $100.00. It was recommended by the waiter. It was the least expensive one of the bunch and it was very good. We will be back.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
The menu was exceptional - the homemade pasta was without peer, the wine list excellent, and the TVs running "My Cousin Vinnie" add something special. great ambiance, service was excellent. Liked this location very much and look forward to returning!
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice place with nice music
Nice place with nice music playing. The food was delish and well served. Would recommend for special occasions.

We both had the Veal Parm
We both had the Veal Parm and it was excellent. It was the best I've ever had. I even bought the cook book but was disappointed there were not that many recipies in it I would definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone who goes to Vegas The meatball salad is a must.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
You won't find better Italian food!
Great, great food and terrific service. Also nice specialty drinks!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I am in Vegas often n this was my first time here. It will def not be my last food top notch n service unreal. Just go here. You won't be disappointed
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place was amazing. The calamari was the best I've ever had. The veal parmagiana was also delicious.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
went back for more
Went to the bar for a drink and appetizers before the Chippendales show (it's right next to their theater) Loved the food so much we made reservations for dinner the next night and were not disappointed. Linguini & clams, fresh made mozzarella, and the calamari with spicy chili sauce were all fantastic. Looking forward to going back and trying more things on the menu.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best spagetti & meatballs in Vegas!
Every time I eat at Café Martorano's I order the spaghetti & meatball and it never disappoints me. Is my opinion it is one of the best things on the menu and tastes great. Went here with a friend for her birthday and we had the most amazing service. A sparkling candle with a great flame was placed in the cannoli.....fun to see. A must try if in Vegas. If you are a local and part of the Total Rewards program, it is a great value!

Great food and services... and LOUD
Thoroughly enjoyed the food, and the service was phenomenal. Ambiance is super-hip and very, very modern. Not what you'd ordinarily expect from an Italian restaurant. Only real shortcoming was how loud the place can get, but maybe I'm just getting old. It's no deal-killer-- I'd go back with no misgivings.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
The continuous light show flashing across the dining room seemed out of place. If you suffer from vertigo you may not make it through the meal.
The food was good and the service very good.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
I wouldn't recommend this
I wouldn't recommend this place because I think it is too pricey. Living in Las Vegas there are much better places for more reasonable price.
