Best meatball ever
Best Italian food in South Florida. Staff is friendly service is excellent. Fun for a late weekend night
Was there with a party of 6 and was there to eat and drink and was rushed throughout the whole night! Was disappointed!!
Best Italian food I’ve ever had. The mozzarella appetizer was spectacular as was the veal chop and bucatini carbonara. It’s great to go to a restaurant where the owner takes so much pride in his establishment that he’s in the kitchen making sure every dish meets his expectation. Great food, great atmosphere, great people!
Birthday, has a great time
Cafe Martorano continues to be the finest Italian restaurant in the United States!
This was my second time coming and can’t wait to come back again . The food was delicious ! The service was on point ! Even the busboy was top notch . Awesome dinner !
For the price they charge the service and presentation was very lackluster. Tavalino's is CS crushes this place. Went with out water for 90% of our meal.
I have eaten here frequently I guess that means it is really good food, great vibe overall a fantastic restaurant
Stevie and Marsha are terrific, as is the staff. The old school food and music is classic. The experience is always top notch!!
Noise level was high.
Simply The Best...
Martorano was highly highly recommended to us and I was at first disappointed to see it was in a strip mall! However, we walked inside and were amazed! It was small but spectacular! Food the best of our entire trip. I would definitely recommend and return myself! Staff was wonderful! A young girl called a cab for us and when it didn't come in a timely manor she not only called again but stayed outside with us making sure we were taken care of and satisfied. Loved the experience altogether!
Outstanding service and the food was amazing. No wait time. Had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Mr Martorano
My family is in Fort Lauderdale for vacation and we really enjoy good food, so we really wanted to check out Cafe Martorano. We all did due diligence, so we expected the place to be kind of noisy and pricy, but well worth it. We were not disappointed. Service was fantastic, our waiter was very attentive, down to earth and knowledgeable. We ordered several (5) apps for the table, each one delicious. Steve was nice enough to send out a few complimentary apps too, all of those were very good as well. Our favorites were the prosciutto and the meatball w/ /salad. The baked clams were very good too! Each time an appetizer was brought out, the person bringing it to the table
Would ask how many wanted some of the dish, and would serve it to each of us. So again, the service was just excellent. By the time entrees came, everyone was pretty stuffed but we all enjoyed our entrees. The chicken on the bone and the sausage, mushroom pea pasta were especially good. We couldn’t help but have cappuccinos and desserts, all of which were great. Overall just great experience. We all noted how it’s not a pretentious place, very relaxed, make you feel like family vibe. Great food and service.. but not somewhere you go looking for a good value. You get what you pay for. We will be returning any time we’re in the area
Felt like I was back in my grandmother's kitchen in South Philly. The absolute best
Awesome as always. Food is incredible! Looking foreword to going again.
I’ve been here a number of times. The place is awesome. Go after 9 o’clock-it rocks. Last trip, we had 8 guest. We had great service. We did family style. The waiters were great. The atmosphere was on believable. I thought the meal and wine were fair fair values.
Always the best experience
Always great food and great service!!
Food is EXCEPTIONAL but waiter was arrogant!
Mediocre, entree was delivered 15 minutes before my fiancé, no one checked on us as to why. Meh.
The cheesesteak was amazing!
The shrimp and crab scampi was amazing.
The browned butter cake and homemade ice cream was an awesome delight!
Can't wait to go back.
Steve never disappoints, I have been dining here for the past 23 years. It just keeps getting better. The food is outstanding, the quality is top notch and there’s always great surprises to the specials which makes it extra special. The final touch are Marsha’s desserts which are from Lilly Cakes. Thank u Steve, Marsha and staff for knocking it out of the park every time! 👌🏻🥂
Outstanding as always! I'm from Atlanta but feel like a regular when I go to Martorano's. The bartender, Alicia, is awesome and provides great service. Food, of course, is first class and delicious. Tried the bone-in Pork Chop and it was pure gravy - that means it was amazing! Can't wait to go back!
We went for dinner while in Ft. Lauderdale since I loved the one in AC . It was excellent . The homemade mozzarella was warm and perfect . The chicken parm and chicken Marsala were delicious with the rigatoni vodka. The meatball salad was huge and one of the best meatballs. We had the cheesecake for dessert. Everything is huge so it can be shared. We will definitely go back .
My favorite restaurant in South Florida! Steve is the best!
Food and service was great. Very noisy & expensive!
Food was amazing. Service was amazing. Definitely plan to go back.
This was my second time coming to Cafe Martorano and I was impressed again! Food was fantastic. The ambience was wonderful. Being able to see into the kitchen is great. The desserts were out of this world. Staff is attentive and professional while being friendly and engaging. I tell everyone about this place....already I can’t wait to go back. (I may have to try the Atlantic City one to get my fix as it’s closer!) Any time I’m
In lauderdale I’m going to stop in!!
BEST food, service and music!!! THANK YOU CAFÉ MARTORANO for another amazing night out!!!
If your looking for an incredible experience you need to go to cafe Martoranos. This place is the best never disappoints
Great food and service!
Outstanding, Amazing . Always loved this place . This past Wednesday was heaven on a plate . I live in NY and frequently go the the one in Atlantic City. But , I forgot how delicious this one is . Every thing was amazing . Pasta cooked to perfection, lobster melted in mouth ... Awesome music .
By far the best Italian food in south Florida, the staff and atmosphere was incredible as well. I already made a reservation for June when I come back down here. This is definitely one of those MUST go to places when on vacation in south Florida.
We were cell testing a birthday!! We are frequent new guests and we truly love the service and the good!! Steve and his wife are very warm people!!
The BEST Italian food you will ever have. Been going there for over 20 years and never disappoints
Good service. Excellent wine and menu with plenty of choices. So many TVs made it almost seem too casual and overstimulated for the intended atmosphere. For fine dining and higher prices, I might expect a more quiet, classy ambiance.
Always a go to restaurant when we come to Florida, your guaranteed the best meal of your vacation when you go here. Love when Steve is there cooking for everyone!
I have been to this place many times and the food was outstanding. This time I asked for my veal chop which was like $72 to be cooked medium. It was well done and difficult to even cut. The sauce on top was tremendous though. The table service was a bit over the top. As soon as you put your fork down they try to take your plate away. A couple times I told the waiter no not yet there was still food left to eat. I felt like the staff was stalking and rushing us so that was a bit uncomfortable.
Overall the food is usually very good though very pricey. Excellent place to go for special occasions.
