We are regulars at this amazing restaurant. I can’t say enough how much my wife and I enjoy this place. Chef/DJ Steve is a master in that kitchen. His flavors on every dish just makes my mouth water typing this review. We can’t wait to be back. Have a great vacation to the Martorano crew and yes we already have our reservation for October 6 see you then!!!!

The service was amazing, food beyond the best of the best. We were given tasting plates of food items just to try; everything we were served was absolutely amazing. If you are in Fort Lauderdale this is a must. Don’t miss out on a meal or a lifetime, service beyond no other and such a great ambiance. Looking forward to our next visit. Be sure to make a reservation.

Incredible food, great service and the ambience is so much fun. Try it on Friday or Saturday night when Owner/Chef/DJ, Steve Martorano spins an array of top movie soundtrack Favs…it’s an experience! Leave room for dessert! If you’re lucky enough to get a table after 8..be sure you show up!!

25 stars out of 5. Had the sausage cavattini with veal Demi glaze. The best thing I’ve eaten in my 51 years on earth. Oh wait it was tied with one other thing I had before. The fried mozzarella as my appetizer. Wow! Delicious. Delightful. And downright f’ing awesome!

Great time as usual. We usually sit at the bar but They accommodated our request to have a table with back support for my pregnant wife. The food was phenomenal as was the service. We weren’t rushed and it was just a nice Wednesday out. Thanks a ton!

2 words. Absolutely incredible! The food was to die for. The service was impeccable. Whatever the price was didn’t matter because it was worth every penny. We were very very happy with this experience and will definitely be back. Could not recommend more (and I’m a complete food snob!)

What an amazing experience! We met our friends who frequent this cafe often. We started with the lemon drop martinis which were super fab. Upon their recommendation we ordered the meatball & salad to share. Best ever! Even the way our waiters served our plates made me feel so fancy. Then our food was served. Let’s just say my husband and I are definitely fans. Our favorite drink became the Prickly Pear drink. We ended with a piece of homemade pistachio cake made by the owner herself, who we had the pleasure of meeting! Great time with a fun atmosphere!
