We were referred this place from a friend who went 20 years ago, it was amazing - it is where everyone who is ‘anyone’ goes - looks like an exotic show room car lot. Food is amazing and the music starts around 9:30- I recommend an 8pm reservation. We can’t wait to go back. Order anything Pasta- remarkable

Waiter suggested a different wine than what I ordered. When bill came wine was almost twice the price of the glass that I ordered. One thing to suggest a reasonable substitute, not ok to suggest a wine that was almost twice the price. Low class move.

Steve, you guys knock it out of the park every time. Julie and I cherish the birthdays and anniversaries we have spent but last night was year two of an annual trip I make with the first friend I ever made in my life. He talks about it all year. Your team never disappoints. The eggplant stack, cheesesteak, meatball and pizza we shared to start was as incredible as any other time we had it. The sausage and mushroom pasta and veal parm was excellent. I need to bring a bag of spinach next year for the Veal My Way. Still talking about it after all these years. Hope you all are finding serenity in a very challenging time in our industry. Thank you for the memories. Thank you to your team for understanding how important it is to bring their A game to every shift. See you soon.

Restaurant was absolutely amazing. The owner Steve greeted me as soon as i walked in. I told him I’m from New York and whenever i come to Fort Lauderdale, i always come here. He said “welcome home”. The service was outstanding. We didn’t have an empty plate on our table for more than 30 seconds. Waiters come and clean your table in between courses, and always give you fresh and clean silverware. The food was outstanding, the Philly cheese steak is a top appetizer. Steve the owner sent over a small pasta and an another appetizer on the house for us to try. The homemade mozzarella was warm and delicious. Around 9oclock Steve got on the dj booth and the atmosphere was crazy. Awesome throwback songs had everyone dancing and singing at their seat. At the end of dinner, Steve invited me and my brother to the kitchen to take a picture with him. Our experience was absolutely incredible and i will always visit Steve and his wife at their restaurant when I’m in town. Very humble people who treat you like family. 5 out of 5 stars.

Martorano is always a good time! Always! The staff of very friendly and beyond accommodating! The vibe, the music, the food everything comes together to make it a tremendous experience! Steve himself is warm, friendly, super hospitable, and welcomes everyone into his home to share his magnificent skills- listen, the reality is, you will not find a place more fun, more professional with food of that quality! Guarantee!! It exists only at Cafe Martorano!
