As usual Steve Martarano never lets you down!! The Greatest dining experience on the Planet!!
We are from Ohio and we make sure to visit the restaurant every time we are in the area. Definitely more pricey, but everything is so fresh and made from scratch that you don’t feel over stuffed when you leave. The food is cooked to order to its takes a little time, but the wait is worth it! Service is amazing. It won’t disappoint!
The srrvice and was excellent. A bit pricey for Italian. I did not realize that the place turned i to a nightclub at 9:00 at night. A little crazy snd extremely loud with club atmosphere light show while your eating. I will get an earlier reservation next time
Great food! Great time! We had a blast. Thank you Steve and staff!
Best Italian food in Ft. Lauderdale. Extremely lively and entertaining, Mob movies playing non-stop on several screens. The place is loud and changes to menu are frowned upon, but the food...oh so good! Chef Martorano holds court in the open view kitchen. Lucky, the waiter's assistant was amazing! Fresh pasta was to die for. Lots of garlic and the tomato sauce (no gravy) was outstanding. Try the fresh mozzarella. Enjoy!
Great food and service but very rushed. Dinner was on their time schedule not ours. Dinner came before we were done with appetizers and check came before we were done with dessert.
The best Italian food this side of Italy!
When we came up to the restaurant it looks like nothing from the outside. But good abs service was outstanding. Best Italian in Ft Lauderdale.
Very good food and service
Great experience as always, will for sure be back!! One small thing, when it was getting crowded it was getting warm in inside. Coming from someone that likes 65 degrees everyday and everywhere, it was a very little problem. Look forwarded to bring back soon!!
Love it! Been going there and to all his locations for 12 years now! Same awesomeness!
This place was amazing! Whenever we come back to Florida it will be must stop! Wish we lived closer but also glad we don’t because I would be there every night!!
There is no other restaurant that can compare to this place. If you are looking for the freshest, the cleanest, the tastiest food and so much more. You will not be disappointed. Wish there was 10 stars on here, because thats what Cafe Martorano’s deserves.
Best food ever! Service is amazing. Great place for a celebration!
If there was a rating for higher then "5 stars" i would give it that. From the food to the service everything was exceptional. I will definitely be back again.
As before on our numerous visits, the food and service were top notch. Every meal here has Benn wonderful! That's why we keep coming back.
This was our 2nd visit to Martaranos since we do not live in the area. We are from New York City and this restaurant will be our go to whenever we are in the area.
Awesome food awesome service great night out great place to take a date if you’ve never been go check out this place it’s a must see!
So much fun! Great music and food!
Love this restaurant. Just felt like we were rushed out.
Haven’t been in 2 years. LOVED it when I was last there. Food COMPLETELY different. So spicy I couldn’t eat my linguini w clam sauce. The meatball w ricotta and Italian salad, same. Salad was so spicy not even edible. So very sad to say I won’t be back. The music and ambiance is amazing - but not worth it.
A must go to spot for Sicilian and Italian dishes in Fort Lauderdale.
Outstanding food, I always enjoy it.
Service is spotty, took a LONG time to get drinks and refills.
Worth going to and enjoying an evening of high quality Italian Food.
Amazing as always it was my dads birthday he loved it. Have been many times and absolutely love the food and the hospitality of Steve and Marsha. Great place great food and fun atmosphere. Philly cheesesteak is still my go to meal. Just love it 😊
Hostesses were rude and unwelcoming.
New manager could not make a decision to seat us so we could order drinks before the other 2 people in our party arrived. Even after we explained that we would follow their rules and not order until everyone arrived. So we wound up standing at the front door for 20 minutes while waiters buzzed by us.
I ordered Chicken parm. Nothing special at all. Sauce was bland, pasta side was minimal. Have had much better at my local pizza shop for 1/3 the cost. And speaking of cost, entire menu is waaaay overpriced. Typical trick used is for the waiter to ask if you want regular or sparkling water and not offer tap. They don’t say it will be bottled. If you say regular then they bring over the bottled and charge you. Most reputable place will offer tap at no charge.
Gimmicky menu where the waiter shows you specials on an iPad with no pricing. Our friends ordered sea bass and it was over $60 for nothing special. Very sketchy.
We originally came to Martorano’s over a year ago to try their meatball and salad dish which my daughter loved and at the time we did the same and it was fine even though that was also overpriced. But this time around will be our last time.
If you want good Italian food, there are much much better places to dine with regard to quality, taste and value for your money.
Have been coming here for the past 4 years and always has been fantastic.
Awesome! Food is amazing.
Incredible food, amazing experience and fabulous service!!! It’s a must go to place
Loved it place was electric
Best Place, Steve sets the bar for a great dining experience
Thank you to the girl at the reception desk who checked us in and actually didn't give away our reservation to a couple who wanted to be seated with no reservations. I've had that happen before at this place. The food is exceptional and the ambience is a real treat for those of us who love that stuff. Thanks again.
The Best Basic Italian anywhere. Also, there is no better cheesesteak. Always a super fun atmosphere. Dining at Martorano’s in Las Vegas and Atlantic City has always been amazing. Finally enjoying the original in Fort Lauderdale did not disappoint. Just the best!!! Cannot wait for you to open in Pittsburgh!! Steve and Marsha are amazing hosts. Yo cuz, don’t miss it!
The waiter was great his recommendations were absolutely delicious the food was impeccable great place to have dinner
If we didn’t feel rushed from the moment we sat down, I would have given 5 stars all around. We were so disappointed to feel like they were just in a hurry to turn our table over. It was an awful feeling.
I can't say yes or no about recommending . Food was delicious ( but had to keep asking for more bread) and menu is OVERPRICED and it was soooooo noisy. We couldn't hear each other talk.
Everything was great especially our waiter Ted he has been waiting on us since they first opened
every time we get to Florida we make sure we get to Café Martorano with new people every time
my husband gets the lobster Franchise almost all the time
Can’t wait to go back with more people from Stevens old neighborhood in northeast phila
Both of our meals were excellent and the meatball salad is a must. Food portions are huge.
The Food was Excellent! Steve Martorano is not only a great cook and gracious host , he DJ’s Too!! The music was a great addition to a great Dinner!! Service was also Excellent! We have been coming to this Fort Lauderdale location for over 15 years now and are never disappointed!! I highly recommend it!!
