Fantastic every time worth the wait a real panty dropper
All I can say is that the the food is made with love. You can taste the love in every bite. Steve is passionate about his food and it shows. My favorite, lobster francaise, was not one of the specials that night. But as usual , if they can accommodate you, they will and managed to make me one. The water ice martinis need to be ordered, as are the meatball salad and Sicilian slice, which is still crispy, cold, the next day!!!! If you are looking for an excellent meal with exceptional service, go to Cafe Martorano. All of his restaurants are phenomenal, but Lauderdale is my fave.
Outstanding food, great vibe, exceptional service. Couldn’t ask for a better meal or experience!!!!
Great service, the waiter was very attentive —explained the restaurant, and constantly checked in. The food was fresh and delicious!
Whenever, I'm in Florida..Martorano's is my first stop for dinner.. The food is ALWAYS fantastic and the staff are always impeccable. Thank you again Mr. Martorano, Teddy and the Martorano family..Till Next time
As always the food was simply amazing the service fabulous and Chef runs a terrific restaurant.
We LOVE Martorano! Steve makes magic in the kitchen. I think we celebrate every birthday here! Everything we had was outstanding. The calamari is very unique and the meatball always lives up to its best thing reputation. The veal with hot peppers was delicious and we ordered rigatoni vodka which wasn’t on the menu, but Steve happily made it.
We flewvin from Toronto Canada and our family in Fort Lauderdale told us we must attend and experience this restaurant. Fantastic was outstanding service and felt so comfortable.
Amazing service with even better food. Second time here, never fails to be so fresh and delicious
great food, great service. not a quiet atmosphere but really fun
Sucked! Food was way too expensive for what it was.
My family and I dine at Cafe Martorano often especially when our oldest is down from college. We try to go every month and a half because it’s THE BEST Italian food in South Florida. We travel to Italy often so we know great Italian and trust me if you haven’t tried it you’re missing out big time. I have tried many dishes and every one is outstanding. The meatball salad with ricotta melts in your mouth. Seriously I’m spoiled for meatballs and can’t eat them anywhere else. The entrees are one each better than the next. I’m always torn because EVERYTHING I’ve tasted is superb. I always circle back to the chicken Parmesan as it’s deliciously Devine. The starters are excellent and you’ll be ridiculously surprised that the cheesesteak sandwich and Sicilian slice are both the best I’ve ever tasted. the bread has a perfect crunch on each of them. One more thing I’d like to point out. Steve is such a perfectionist with his food. He is so gracious and is almost always there. He takes pride in the meals he creates and is a master at his craft. If you have not dined here you are really missing out. Try it. You will keep coming back. By the way they sell his sauce at my Publix and I always buy it. It’s the best sauce on the market.
Cafe Martorano never disappoints. When I go out to eat I would rather come here and spend a little more money and get quality food and service than go somewhere else and get bad food and bad service. The meatball salad is an absolute must! I also had veal with a creamy mushroom lobster sauce. So good!! Take my money!
Thank You Martorano
Another great night, food, service, and music.
What more can you ask for!!!
Food as usual is unbelievable but get there before the loud music starts. Owner even puts headphones on when it starts. But I need to restate that the food is outstanding
Delicious food, fun atmosphere. Spent $500 for 4 people without dessert or bottles of wine. 4 entrees and 4 appetizers basically.
From start to finish worth every penny plus some. Very attentive service, food cooked to order and served PIPING hot. Wouldn't hesitate to make another reservation.
Had not been there in a while but still great food all do we are early the light show and dj are still a staple of this original spot go after 10pm it's a blast we will be back
Achtung Abzocke. Seit vielen Jahren immer und immer wieder super. Aber - ab sofort rate ich jeden Interessenten von diesem Restaurant ab. Die Selbstherrlichkeit am Empfang ist nur noch zu steigern von der gelangweilten Einstellung der Kellner. VORSICHT: Die Speisekarte zeigt normale Gerichte zu normalen Preisen - die Tages Special werden am Tablett präsentiert und lassen aufgrund der Lautstärke des Ladens keine Nachfragen zu. Spaghetti für EUR 48,00 und Ricotta im Teig für 37.00 sind der absolute Hohn. Die Preise verstehen sich natürlich netto, also zzgl. rund 27 %. Die Party, die den Laden bisher ausgemacht hat findet nicht mehr statt. Die Musik läuft nur noch über den PC und es findet keinerlei Light Show statt. Alles in allem also ein absolut schlechter Abend der im TV einmal für „Achtung Abzocke“ übernommen werden sollte. Über viele Jahre ein High Light in Fort Lauderdale - jetzt nur noch eine große Schande und eine Touristenfalle. VORSICHT
Always a 5 star experience
Amazing as always!!
My girlfriend and I were in town for a few days from New Jersey to celebrate her birthday. A friend of mine saw a post on social media she put up saying we were in Ft. Lauderdale and immediately texted me stating “if your in Ft. Lauderdale you gotta go to Martorano’s.” To keep it short, arguably the best Italian food I’ve had.
Excellent as usual... great place to celebrate a Special Occasion
5 stars everything: service, food, atmosphere. Closest thing to a solid northeast meal as you’ll get anywhere. Absolutely fantastic.
Great experience service and food was well worth it
First time at Cafe Martorano taking customers out for dinner. Restaurant was recommended by a friend. Everyone enjoyed themselves and raved about the food which was outstanding. Will return again next time in Fort Lauderdale.
Great time... great energy... great food and drinks! What more do you need?
As perfect as it gets! you can definitely share some and try a variety of these amazing dishes!
First time at Martorano’s and it was amazing. The service and food could not have been better. My family is in Florida for 10 days and we’re going back next week.
Thanks to the staff for making my birthday that much better. Great job!
Absolutely amazing experience and food as always! Ever the consistent (and delicious) experience!
Food was amazing... service was outstanding! Owner was there greeted all who approached him. Little pricey but to be expected before we arrived. No wait had a reservation we were at our table within a minute. Had a later evening reservation and I liked the owner was djing and turned it into a lounge. It was an overall wonderful evening.
It's a beautiful setting outside with its water feature. Large outside patio area. Service was excellent! The food...not so much. If I go back, it wouldn't be to have a meal, but rather a few drinks after work with friends.
The cafe Martorano experience is nothing short of spectacular. From the minute you sit down your treated as one of Steve’s family. Whether it’s Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas or Atlantic City the quality of Italian food is second to none. You couldn’t get any fresher. I can’t wait to go back.
Our dinner was delicious. The service was too aggressive for our
Taste. From the moment we sat down to eat, we felt rushed through out our entire meal. As a result, we did not enjoy our
Experience as much as we could have. We were dining with friends and wanted to enjoy and converse while dining but felt
Too rushed to enjoy. We even communicated this to the people serving us but it still continued throughout our meal.
server was very nice & helpful
overall atmosphere was lively but still personable with your own table
steve was gracious to speak with us
this restaurant will not disappoint
a must go to when in ft lauderdale
I look forward to Florida business trips solely to eat here everytime I’m in the Miami area. I don’t eat Italian food at home in Southern California because it’s sucks so I save my craiving ms for Chef Steve’s REAL Italian food. You can taste his passion in every bite!
Always a great place to dine for any occasion. Dinner was delicious!
Best restaurant in Broward county by far! Jimmy is top notch, food is beyond exceptional!
