Never a good experience when the server make you feel he’s doing you a favor by dining there ...
If Jesus walked the earth today, he'd eat at Martorano's seven days a week!
Cafe Martarano is the best example of Italian-American comfort food, perhaps in the entire country.
The veal chop Parmesan was amazing. Def loud place but great service and food. Not the place you want a quiet dinner.
The food was amazing and the ambiance was even better. We had a fun night.
Service was great. Food was great. Steve was awesome.

Great Food and Service. Steve always goes out of his way to make sure everything is perfect
I cannot say enough about Café Martorano, I have been going there for years! Steve is a gracious host and staff is professional and food is exceptional. Marsha is a classy lady....always an Exceptional dining experience!
Amazing. We all skated.
Best Veal Parmigiana ever eaten!
Food was great as always!
Exceptional food and service always. The best Italian food in South Florida.
Our favorite place in South Florida!! We go at least once every time we’re in town.
It is always a great experience in enjoying really great Italian food in a class of it’s own!!!Great atmosphere!
I think the people who left poor reviews woke up on the wrong side of the bed because THIS PLACE IS UNREAL. Coming in from NY and being Italian I am naturally quite the food critic and honestly every dish here was INCREDIBLE - like mouth watering counting down the minutes until we come back good. Yes, the restaurant gets loud after 9pm but that's all part of the fun and expected when you go. The live DJ was awesome. We had an amazing time, the service was unparalleled, and food was BEYOND WORDS. Honestly where do you find a place that the owner is actually in the kitchen rolling up his sleeves and putting in work?!! An absolute must go if in Fort Lauderdale - we can't wait to come back!
It all starts with the owner Steve Martorano His attention to every detail make this place extraordinaire. From the moment you walk in you feel all your senses are being engaged. A great bar atmosphere is enjoyed while waiting for your table. The selection of music makes your evening flow perfectly. The wine list is superb and the various nightly dishes cooked are simply the best in south Florida. You gotta try the meatballs & Scampi. Mouth watering. Been going to Cafe Martorano since 1998 and have never once been disappointed. The greatest ever Cuz!!
This restaurant gets better and better. The food and service were excellent. We were a party of five and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Try the Veal chop!
Too crowded, waaaaay overbooked 1-1/2 hr wait with reservations
I have been eating at Cafe Martorano for close to a decade now. I mainly would drive to the Hollywood location at the hardrock but unfortunately, it was closed down. The original in Fort Lauderdale is not as big but still a nice place. It is very loud due to the music playing but that just means I fit right in as an italian due to always being told I speak loudly. Food is absolutely amazing, main reason I always come back. Our server didn't really seem interested in being there and looked away when taking our order. Everything you read about reservations are true. We were a few minutes early but waited about 20 to be seated. Although the food is good, it most definitely overpriced. In the end we had a great experience and enjoyed some delicious food.
Amazing meal, especially the meatball! Excellent service!
The food here never disappoints.
THE BEST EVER! Every time we eat there, it tastes better and better because they consistently serve world-class food using the finest ingredients. Incredible service and staff. The restaurant is very clean and ambience perfect but the best part is that Steve blends flavors that are so out of this world, you taste them for a week! Yes, it's that amazing. We are regulars but this time brought another couple. They haven't stopped talking about their incredible dinner and how they have never tasted a better Philly Cheese Steak or Meatball or Chicken Parm or Sicilian Slice anywhere in the world [incl. Rome] than Martorano's. THESE ITEMS ARE THE BEST IN CLASS! This is one of those rare restaurants that not only lives up to its reputation but actually exceeds it. Thank you Steve & Marsha for bringing us the best Italian food and desserts on earth served with a lot of love and care. AMAZING!!
Excellent! The food is the best Italian that I have ever had. Great service and a very friendly staff!
I really can't say enough about how amazing this place is! From the food to the service to the music, it's hard to top! We were only in Fort Lauderdale for 5 nights and just had to go there twice! Steve and Marsha thank you for the amazing experience as usual! We will be back soon! #yocuz
Food is always great and specials change all the time.
Tourist trap. Food and the cousin Vinny schtick was good but rediculously overpriced. $54 for pasta with a couple of shrimp. Meh.
Best Italian food , great service that isn’t just service but is fun. The servers really know what they are talking about and out their heart into it.
Service and good was amazing you can tell that everyone loves what they do!!!
From Steve to the whole crew. First Class and Seven Stars!
Horrible service. I was always remind to order faster and eat faster. It was my birthday . They destroyed it
Food and staff were amazing Every dish was better then the one before. The meatballs and salad so much more than what you read about.
Marsha you were wonderful and so welcoming. Xoxo. Hope your husband (I think his name is Steve? ) is feeling better.
Simply the best Italian restaurant in the USA!!! Everything, from the incredible meatball salad to the fresh , homemade cheese to the carbonara to the chicken parm was better than any I've ever eaten!!! Is it worth the trip from all points in South Florida? Hell, it's worth the trip from South America and South Korea!!!!!
Great food but unnecessarily expensive
Always the best.
Very unhappy with my server. Had a reservations booked at 9pm on Saturday February 24th. Ordered a 150 dollar bottle of wine, appetizer and two entrees for my wife and I. After the entrees were complete we had some wine left we would like to enjoy, and our server said we can not finish the wine and forced us to order a dessert or have to leave. He delivered the dessert with bill as we were still trying to finish our wine. Very unprofessional. I ordered two coffees after and he basically had to bring another bill and waited for me to hand over my credit card.
I love the food and atmosphere here and come every year when my wife and I travel to Florida from canada. Very angry customer
It rocks every time!!
Everything was phenomenal from the moment we arrived! We were greeted by Mar and taken right to our table. The waiters were prompt and friendly, and very welcoming. We ordered the meatball salad as appetizer! Great portion and absolutely homemade meatball, no filler, so delicate and cooked perfectly! For dinner I had the fresh mozzarella and broccoli rabe. My husband had the chicken parm. We left nothing on the plates! We ordered the Tiramisu and red velvet cake for dessert! This had to be the best meal we have had, from apps to dessert! The waiter suggested the perfect wines and we had cappuccino with dessert. Service was superb and atmosphere was spot on! Came all the way from Philly to eat here for our anniversary! Best decision!
Always on point ! Been to many locations but original is by far my favorite ...
