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.

We had an enjoyable last minute Father’s Day dinner at this restaurant. Everyone was so nice and the food delicious.
We will definitely be going back.

Very good Italian restaurant. Service is usually VERY good, but due to graduations they were overloaded; but still good. Good place to take your significant other on date or for business meeting.

First time for dinner. I had a group lunch there a couple years ago and it was good and one of our party went recently for lunch or dinner (not sure). Reservation was fine, but they were trying to get a window table ready as I requested, but early diners did not finish in time :-( We sat at another table near the doors going outside, which would not have been an option if it wasn't raining, so there was no one coming in and out. Servers were very nice (Nicole and Diana).... Food was super - 2 specials of grouper over white truffle risotto with asparagus tips and tomato and one order of the Chicken Marsala. Hot all the way through - yum! Nice to have great choices for GF :-) Also had the Crème Brulee for dessert - another nice option! Will be back with our guys and friends!!

One of our favorite restaurants. The indoor decor and spaces are kind of strange, but the food, drinks and service are invariably excellent and the outdoor deck is lovely.

We were tremendously disappointed because we had been here a few other times and enjoyed it. However this time the food was cold and almost tasted as if it had been frozen and re-heated. The place felt and smelled dirty. Bathrooms were filthy. Nit a good experience at all.

We normally don’t dine at peak hours but this occasion was a 7:30 on a Saturday. I could tell our server was busy, but she was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. The food is always great. Love the homemade pasta.

Nice dinner date. Sat on outdoor patio. Service was exceptional. Friendly staff, attentive and informative. Food was delicious. We had the chicken Parmesan and rigatoni calabrese and side steamed broccoli. The rigatoni I would order again in a heartbeat.

My wife and I took a client to Murano for dinner. The weather was wonderful for outdoor seating in April. Our server was very good and the food wonderful. Our client lives in the Philly area so he knows good Italian and raved about the quality and taste the next day. I highly recommend this restaurant for a client or evening with your spouse.

A friend and I went for Murano's Jazz Brunch on Sundays, and the price really couldn't be beat.
For each of us, we spent just $25 for a filling entree and bottomless mimosas - and the service was great! Next time I'm back up in the Altamonte area, I'll definitely stop by again

I was in Orlando for work and was very pleased with my experience at Cafe Murano. The location was easy to find and have a great lake view from the outdoor patio. The server was great and very helpful with picking out/customizing my meal items to meet my vegetarian needs. The food was also delicious as well. I would definitely recommend Cafe Murano to others in the future. If the weather is great I would recommend sitting on the patio.

Food was great, but the service was poor! The staff was not focused on the customers. They were busy hanging out and talking with each other. We sat outside and this was nice , but the outside needs a major power wash to remove cobwebs in ceiling and food off the plastic protector on the walls in front of the rales

The food was excellent as well as the service. The room we were seated in overlooked the waterfront. The noise level was appropriate for the number of people in the room.
Atmosphere was inviting and pleasing to the eye.

Was our 1st time dining here. Met friends to enjoy lunch together. Service was slow and when we finally got food it was room temperature. We ordered a variety of entrees and found all unsatisfactory. We think food got plated and forgotten. By the time it was served it was cold.

Restaurant was clean and nice view so might try again but not with other guests. Will need to see if it’s up to standard before we invite others to join us again.

Waitress was nice and they were busy when we were there but no excuse for cold food being served.

Love at first bite. We were celebrating our second wedding anniversary and the overall experience was wonderful. Our server, Candace, was on top of her game. As a restaurant manager myself, I find that Cafe Murano is as a restaurant should be. From the hosts with a welcoming greeting, the service, to the amazing food, I see all the. signs of a successful, well run establishment.
We will definitely be returning for more of the same. I have, and will continue to, reccommend this restaurant.
Thank you for a great evening!

Our waiter was very slow, our waiter placed my husband and my food separately. My steak was well done, I ordered it medium. My glass of tea wasn't filled I had to ask each time. The music was so loud, we couldn't place our order without yelling. I had to use my cellphone light to read the menu it was so dark. The food was ok, it wasn't a five star.

From the ease of making a reservation via OpenTable, to being seated immediately upon our arrival, there was absolutely nothing that could have been done better than it was! Service; impeccable. Food; perfectly prepared. Ambience; perfect for a private, intimate meal. Highly recommend!
