Food was great but we were shocked that half the staff was not wearing masks and tables were close together. Also we were made to wait outside because they hadn’t opened yet at our reservation time.

The best Italian food in All of Florida. The service is outstanding. Everyone is highly engaged. Everyone there makes sure that everything is done perfectly but without the stuffy atmosphere you find in other places. The food is outstanding. The simple approach to the ingredients is what makes the flavors stand out.

Amazing dinner! If you enjoy high quality Italian food, Cafe Martorano provides the best. I have traveled to many locations and the food and the service was amazing. People that enjoy high quality Italian specialty dishes will enjoy. If you are a spaghetti and meatball eater you might want to go to Olive Garden.

The food was awesome however our server basically threw our food at us, blaming it on the kitchen, despite our specific request to time it differently.

We are regulars and absolutely love Martoranos! We’ve never had a bad experience or meal here, only the BEST. It’s super consistent and absolutely amazing Italian American food. Steve, the chef is one of the best in South Florida for sure!! The others don’t even compare. For appetizers, the Meatball salad is a must, and a few of our favorite dishes are Linguine Yo Cuz and the Lobster Francese. 100% recommend for any occasion, birthdays are fun because they bring out a dessert with a big sparkler in it. Jose is our server and always on point and personable. Steve’s wife Marsha is also super friendly and personable, she makes the best desserts. The atmosphere is always great, busy, bustling. Around 9 on weekends Steve will begin to DJ really good music, like 80s vibe it’s a lot of fun. Great wine, great food, great people. We’ll forever be Martorano’s obsessed.

I have been here many times before, but this time I left really upset and offended. The waiter was consistently rushing us and not friendly at all. I thought maybe other people needed the table but it was 12 am. He brought the check without us asking. On top of it, he hand wrote the amount of a 20 percent tip and added it to our total and circled it. It was very offensive that he felt he had to do the math for us, or even think to do that. We still tipped him 20 percent which technically lost him money because I always leave 25-30 percent. I think of the situation now and I should have left him 15 percent just for being so rude and doing that.

Place was overcrowded,dark ,no ambiance and overpriced!! They rushed us in and out! The food was ok , however no good enough to warrant their ridiculous prices! The selection was very limited. Definitely a tourist trap.
However the waiter did his job fine.
