Everytime it gets better! Thank you cuz ! Amazing
We eat at Martorano’s quite a bit. I can not praise Steve or his staff enough. We’ve at all of his places but our favorite one is our home city one here in Lauderdale. If you have been here Please please do so! Love ya guys and see ya soon!!
As always, the food and service never disappoint. The staff went above ad beyond following the new safety protocols . So glad to be able to dine in again, although even the takeout was amazing!!!
I took some work buddies for dinner Tuesday, they had a great dinner and loved the ambience. Hard to believe there are still people in our area that haven’t had the opportunity to dine here. Do yourself a favor and call for a reservation.
Thank you to the team at Martorano’s for always making me feel welcome and I consider you all family...
The food is always absolutely outstanding, but the staff and owner of this beautiful restaurant make it such a special place. Upbeat, full of energy, and cool, but warm and welcoming all at the same time. You won't be able to go just once.
1. Food was ok, the rigatoni was totally undercooked way beyond normal “al dente” you may find in Italy
2. Vegas prices in Ft. Lauderdale without all the flash
3. Most disappointing was being asked to leave the table for the next reservation. We had drinks, appetizers, main course, and desert. We had been at the table and were actually wrapping up and would have been gone in another 20 minutes after my wife had a chance to finish the rest of her $120.00 bottle of wine. For a $500.00 plus check you would think there would be a better level of hospitality. Our total time at the table was 1 hour 40 minutes.
Unfortunately trying to support the local establishments did not work out so well
Always Perfect. Whenever I’m in town or Vegas I eat at Cafe M. It was my birthday and everything was wonderful. I’m a 20 yr plus fan.
We were six people waiting for two more to complete a reservation for eight. They would not allow us to sit at a table even though one of my guests was holding a very heavy baby. They told us to go to the bar where there were no stools to sit on. Once seated, they did not have a high chair. My guest had to go back out to the car to drag in a large stroller. Our waiter was shouting all the specials with no mask on .We asked for a side of vegetables for the nine month old baby and all they could offer was a plate of broccoli Rabe for $14.
The bus boys were constantly trying to take our plates away while we were still eating. At one time the man clipped my guests shoulder and dropped oily cheese on her new dress. It was very aggressive table clearing. I have no problem spending large sums of money for a special occasion. But all in all this was a bad experience. Plus they don’t have garlic bread!
Cafe Martorano has it all - Amazing food! Great ambiance! Excellent service! Authentic Italian food you will not find in South Florida. Quality comes with a price cuz!
Couldn’t wait to take my boyfriend’s family! They said hands down the best ITALIAN they ever have had. FAB 🇺🇸
Quiet, enjoyable evening with social distancing
Always consistent and delicious.
Steve always creates new dishes and one is better than the next.
Meatballs, fresh Mozz always a must.
Props to all the hostesses, chefs, servers and bartenders that works as a team to run this great spot! Jose our server was awesome...thank you :) and a shout out to Malcom and Brittney that make sure our drinks are always filled. Cheers!!
Just a nice dinner :)
Always a hood choice for any occasion.
Absolutely great restaurant. All the people were dressed themed to the restaurant. The food was perfect. Best veal I've ever had. Wife's shrimp was perfect and delicious
AWESOME!!!!!! The Best Restaurant In The WORLD! Thank You
Service was terrible! Took guests for their first time and I was embarrassed!
BEST BEST BEST from the bread and olive oil to dessert. You want the best, eat here!!
It is our favorite spot and it never disappoints!! The best food, I love the homemade mozzarella. Jose" is our favorite waiter an Steve plays the best music in town! We take all our friends there and they fall in love with it also. We will be back soon!
We love it!! Of all the best locations... FLL is the best of all!! The music is amazing. I had a huge Surprise 50th party planned for my husband last year and due to my dad passing I had to cancel. This year I had a Surprise 50/51 party planned and canceled to due COVID-19. Instead, he and I had an amazing dinner last Saturday night and enjoyed ourselves immensely ♥️
The food is always excellent!!
Gave this restaurant a second chance . First time had reservation for 8 people at 8 pm for my husbands 50th birthday and didn't get a table till 10:30 - we left and went across the street to a very accommodating Greek restaurant. My 50th birthday was the other night and had a table for 12 people. Due to a medical emergency me and my husband had to fly back home. Not only did Cafe Martorano charge the existing party for our plates ($125 each) They also didn't provide the planned menu and made no apologies. Will never return due to poor management and a staff with no moral compass. They put the check on the table and were asked to leave.
A one of a kind dinning experience like no other. Fantastic Italian Food and exceptional service!
Fabulous food, great service and loved the music !!!
Steve always does it right.
Incredible food as always!!!!
Food was fabulous! Waiter and staff were knowledgeable and professional. Excellent night
Staff was not very friendly. Food was good but not over the top.
We found the food and service to be exceptional. Many lively groups in attendance.
Always excellent food and service. A truly exceptional dining experience!! Our favorite restaurant in South Florida!
When I walked in I felt like I was in someone's home. I was welcomed and so were my kids. Once our table was prepared according to our reservation we sat down and was greeted by staff. The server did an amazing job telling us the promo items and explaining them further since it was our first time there. He also went over the food and drink menu a little more as we asked. The other staff were very attentive in bringing bread to the table, clearing our dishes that we were done with, and boxing our food that we needed boxes were. Steve (the owner) was there on the line in the kitchen as well as mixing up music. For one you hardly see restaurant owner's on the line in the kitchen so that stood out big time for me since I was in the restaurant industry for over a decade. Also my youngest daughter enjoyed his DJ skills since that is her career goal so to see that closeup was awesome. Overall vibe was like family, laid back with a sense of fine dining, which was an awesome mix.
I brought my daughter and a friend because they have heard from us how fun it is....(we have come the last 3 times we were down here from New York) this time there was no music, no dancing and no fun movie interaction... perhaps becaus it was a Sunday night ( my previous visits were on the weekend)- perhaps it was because of his loss (for which we send condolences to the family)... however, the food was delicious - and after all - isn’t that why we go to a restaurant?
Always a fun night
The best food I ever had!
This is our favorite restaurant. I brought my wife here for her birthday dinner. Never disappoints
Always outstanding food and service. Are favorite restaurant in South Florida!!
Three times in 1 week. Need we say more. #biggestfans

Excellent service and food. Best cheesecake I've ever had.
