WOW!!! A must go-to place if you’re in Fort Lauderdale. The food is magnificent, but it’s the atmosphere that truly makes the experience. Great music, better food, and wonderful hospitality. Can’t go wrong with that.
I have been there before and it never disappoints. We love about Cafe Martorano. The food, service, music and the ambience is perfect!
Felt rushed from the moment we arrived. Place is small, crowded and extremely noisy. Food was good but way overpriced. Two meatballs cost $50!! Never again.
Overpriced for location
Was great as usual. Steve and his crew never disappoint.
We have been coming here for years and have never been disappointed. The food is amazing and the service is excellent. It is our favorite restaurant in South Florida.
This is the best place to eat!! We travel 1600 miles to eat at Steve’s original love them
The best food anywhere! Don't plan to diet when you come here...and worth every calorie!
Every dish is amazing!!!
Delicious food but very overpriced, very dark and no ambiance and adequate yet abrupt servers - food was good have had comparable meals in plenty of others restaurants!
I absolutely love this place! I’ve been here several times and the food is always fantastic. The owner is always on site and he’s very personable. He’s got a great background story too. Every time I’m in Florida I make it a point to eat here at least one time. If you want good food you have to try this place. You truly get what you pay for. The best way for me to describe this food is an Italian grandmothers cooking top quality ingredients.
Best Italian in South Florida.
Consistent every time we eat here
Steve’s the Best!!!!
Real Italian food!!!!
Wonderful dinner again
Fantastic food and service
If are gluten free... don’t go!!! They have no concept of it!! I was sick as a dog afterwards from a meal they promised me was gluten free. No options unless you just want cheese.
We had a great wait staff to guide us through our fist visit. They were wonderful. Then a young man known as Tommy C sang a few songs, he was fantastic and made our girls night out special. Hope he is there again soon. Thanks for the wonderful experience! I will be back again for sure.
Service was excellent. The waiter suggested as first timers to have the meatball salad to start and it was awesome. Will definitely come back
This is the best place ever! If you’ve never been your missing out. It’s an experience that you’ll never forget. I don’t ever write reviews but this place deserves more than 5 stars. Food and service are amazing. Can’t wait to go again
Terrible service but great food. They were not accomdating at all at the bar and then rushed us through dinner and dessert and kicked us out of a table to make room for the next round of reservations. So disappointed
Just as amazing as it was over 25 years ago when I first started eating at this incredible restaurant. Steve and his staff are amazing
This was my second time visiting since I was in town. I brought three girlfriends for dinner. Brian and Jose took care of us Friday evening. The atmosphere and our entire meal was fantastic. Steve the owner sent us over an plate to share to start which was very nice. Both servers were very personable and made the start to our girls night out great! Thank you!
Steve is a magic when it comes to food and tunes
Should have fish special more often. The grouper stack was incredible. ❤️❤️
We have got been going there for 10 years. The food has always been OK as we are from Boston where the food is certainly much better. The wait staff is rude is the owner. It’s all about rushing you in and getting you out it’s all about just turning the tables worst experience ever. I would just skip eating Italian before I ever go there again!
Love this place/food but continues to decline in other ways
Love The Mart!
Great food and service but they were definitely rushing us out to try and turn the tables. The food came out so fast and we didn’t even have time to finish one course before the other course was coming out. I even asked them to slow It down and they told me they couldn’t as they had to turn the table. I wanted after dinner drinks and I was told no they had to turn the tables I could have more drinks at the bar. It was a lot of money to be rushed through dinner
You will NEVER have a bad meal at Café Martoranos, Steve and his staff always go above and beyond to go out of there way to help in any way that they can.. We have been going there for many years and his brand just keeps getting better and better... Its our go to place, You should make it yours to....
This was my fourth visit here. My boyfriend and I love this place. It’s always busy however the staff and the owners are always trying their best to accommodate. Steves wife is always warm and welcoming. Plus she is so gorg. The food is beyond delicious and taste so authentic.
My boyfriend is so obsessed with this place and we have tried other Italian restaurants all over Fort Lauderdale... nothing compares.
It is true... Martoranos is not just a restaurant, it’s an experience.
Every time we travel to Fort Lauderdale we go to Cafe Martorano at least twice during our stay. The food is beyond amazing, the service is outstanding. The owner, Steve is nonstop cooking but is sure to say hello to everyone, his gorgeous wife Marsha is always so pleasant and friendly - I can’t say enough good things about this restaurant - five stars all the way!
Just when you think it can’t be more delicious, it’s even better then the last time . How is that possible?! Food really amazes and the music is great. Always a wonderful evening to look forward to.
We loved the amazing food and hospitality. Steve was great to watch orchestrate the evening .
Always excellent! Don’t miss it.
Always Great food
This is the best Italian restaurant I have ever dined in. Incredible from the time we walked in to the time we walked out the door. All of the food is made to order so it is like being in your grandmothers kitchen. The wait staff was very professional and attentive. Oh and did I mention the meatballs were absolutely over the top delicious with the side salad. Make sure you have reservations. Enjoy for you will fall in love with Cafe Martorano. Thanks, Byron Yahnis
Food is outstanding.... a little pricey and the philly cheese steak is amazing but getting smaller
Other than that, I am a repeat customer and love it.
A Terrific night at Martorano’s, Fabulous food and Wine.
Service by Joey was tops. “THE BEST”!
Everything was very nice EXCEPT my experience with Valerie. She has absolutely no idea what a positive customer experience is. I called to try moving my reservation one night because one of guests was sick. She told me we’d be assessed $100 We then called her to say we were on our way but stopped for a bridge opening. Of course she said she would only hold table for 15 minutes. We then had to wait 20 minutes.
First time at this restaurant and everything they say about it is true.Food is excellent and fresh.I bought the cook book and the recipes are excellent as well.A true neighborhood gem with an amazing chef.
