Italian
There are two cardinal rules of Italian cuisine – eat locally and eat seasonally. Food is part of the rhythm of life, and so Italians eagerly await the arrival of seasonal ingredients from mushrooms in the fall to wild strawberries in the spring. We at Cafe Murano bring these themes from Italy to you. Our food is carefully created using the freshest ingredients made from scratch.

It was just ok. Nothing that stands out as a must try. I may come back to try the pizza but other than that, I don’t have to go back

Tonight was our first visit at Cafe Murano. Food and service were very good. My son enjoyed his penne with vodka sauce and I really liked my eggplant. My husband had an issue with his pizza and the manager handled it flawlessly. Trent was a class act and took my husbands complaint seriously. Can’t wait to go back and try other dishes on the menu.

I have been a customer of Café Murano for over 6 years. Café Murano has use to be at the top of my list as far as quality is concerned. I celebrated my wedding day there and every anniversary since.
Unfortunately the service and inventory seems to have been affected by decisions taken by accountants. Unlike my past experiences this last experience was a conformation of my predictions. Their beer inventory is very limited for example they do not even have Guinness anymore or, any other dark beer for example . Their menu is now a single sheet of paper that does not include fish. Everything is pointing at Café Murano changing direction. It seems they would prefer to become another “Fridays” or “Chili’s” or English pub style business. It is perfectly fine if they do that but, they need to understand that they are opening a very large void for another “decent” normal restaurant to open right on their front door.
Personally I am disappointed in their service (understaffed) and their limited beer inventory. The food is still outstanding (except for the fish that is not served anymore) but, if you are looking for a nice intimate restaurant to dine with your wife this is not the place anymore.

We discovered this restaurant while on a soccer tournament weekend. I don't care for chain food especially while traveling - I want good fresh food with good ingredients. This time we took our boys and girls tennis team there plus 3 adults and ate amazing food for $300!!! My grouper was out of this world and could easily have been shared it was so big. They made it gluten free for me as well. My mothers veal was tender and delicious. The vegetables were so fresh as was the meat in every dish. When we were leaving we saw apizza go by us and it looked amazing!!!!!I highly recommend Cafe Murano.

The staff at Cafe Murano was very friendly and accomodating. The food, as usual was quite tasty. It is a moderately priced restaurant and expect to spend about $75-80mper couple, which is standard for this type of establishment

THe high quality of our experience was exacerbated by our server, Candice. She was very attentive and was genuinely interested in making sure we got what we needed. I always look for high quality servers which tells me that the management cares about who thhey put on the front line

It was great only thing is I added chicken to the fettuccine Alfredo and the up charge was $ 7 .00 extra on top of 17.00 For the Alfredo plus $1.50 more for mushrooms so the total for a plate $25.50 it was good but expensive It would have been nice to know the price ahead of time I guess I should of asked too ouch lesson learned !!! Service was great ! Music awesome !!! Food delicious just over priced if you add anything to your meal !!!

I went on a Saturday night and there was a band playing in the bar. It was extremely loud! They closed the door to the dining room and I could still hear the music clearly. The food was good but the Marsala sauce was way to salty and it didn’t taste like it had any Marsala wine in it. It tasted more like brown gravy. I’ll go back again but not on a Saturday night and I’d order something different.

This place is great! Excellent menu choices - great martinis at a reasonable price and food was delicious too.
The best thing was the band! Played a a wide array of rock music from 80s, 90s and some current. They sounded great, especially the singer! We danced after dinner and had a blast!

We love going there on Friday and Saturday nights because they always have a live band that starts playing after around 8:45pm. The food is excellent no matter when you go, but the live music and people watching on Friday and Saturday nights is a ton of fun!! They also have a selection of craft beers that rotates every week or two, which I love. The bread is off the charts delicious!! Definitely our go to Italian restaurant.

My husband and I had to fly into Orlando instead of Jacksonville (our home) due to poor weather conditions in Newark. We rented a car and decided to eat a late lunch away from the bustle of downtown. As usual I checked open table and read about Cafe Murano. WOW!!! We totally enjoyed the food and service. Starting with delicious warm bread, extra virgin olive and freshly grated cheese to our amazing entrees--Shrimp Farnesse which melted in my mouth. The shiitake mushrooms and homemade pasta added such a wonderful taste to this shrimp dish. My husband enjoyed a fantastic Shrimp/Sausage dish. In fact, he devoured it before I got a chance to taste. Our server Danny rocked. A totally enjoyable dining experience.

I have lived here for almost 15 years and have never tried this place. My girlfriend and I decided to go out for Italian change it up a bit there, are a couple different options but when I saw the pictures of the food it seemed like the place to be and it was. We even considered going back the next day for takeout. If we didn't have to go to her mother's house for dinner. The service was wonderful it was a Friday night so it was very busy, make a reservation. We made a reservation so they sat us immediately which is great. You wouldn't tell by the service and by the timing of delivery that it was as busy as it was. If you like Italian food, check it out I can't wait to go back.

We had a wonderful time. We were amazed by our waitress who handled our table of 14 with such ease and grace. She was warm and friendly and took a photo of our group at our request. Love how bubbly she was and outgoing. She did not rush us nor did we feel pressure at any time. The food was "delicious" were the comments from the entire table. Her name was Erika..So a big HUGE THANK YOU to Erika!
We also were told by the bartender Kevin it was okay to bring in Diet tonic water for those wanting low carb drink. A BIG thank you to him and the drinks prepared for our group. Our third year in a row with you all...every time has been fabulous but this year the service was Incredible!
