About Cafe Murano

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.

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!

Enjoyed dinner with my wife. It was a busy Friday night and the noise levels were a little high from the bar area but we were still able to have a conversation without yelling. Service was outstanding; friendly, warm, and very efficient. I had smoked sausage and shrimp risotto in a mild tomato cream sauce with goat cheese folded in...fantastic! My wife enjoyed the penne ala vodka with chicken. The stuffed dates appetizer was also great. I don't particularly care for the tvs in the dining room...it cheapens the atmosphere; keep them in the bar area.

Our dinners were excellent, as usual. We often stop in Cafe Murano after an afternoon movie. Our favorite dish is the chicken Della Casa. The portions are large enough to enjoy for dinner with plenty to take home for tomorrow’s lunch. I had the veal piccata and it was quite good, but a little salty. A little wine,a little pasta, excellent service, Cafe Murano remains a favorite casual dinner place with my group of friends.

Restaurant was what I expected, having been there a couple of years ago. Food was very good and they have a good house band...Nice for dancing.
The bar room is very noisy, and the dining dining area we were seated in was open to this and the loud noise. The closed dining area seemed to be for larger groups and was fairly noisy. Eating on their deck is great when the weather permits.
Food is reasonably priced, except for their specialty drinks. They were not listed on the menu, but when the bill arrived, they were $13 each. Really high in comparison to other places in the area.

I have visited Café Murano for many different reasons. It is always a great time and the Staff is outstanding. The Management will always visit your table and make sure you are completely satisfied. The staff remembers your name and little things like not only bring the great bread and oil but butter.

Danny, our excellent waiter, said that the most popular dish is the eggplant, which our party agreed was wonderful. The other dishes were excellent, too. And there's a good variety of wines by the glass.

We had reservations for 6. We where seated in a larger table away from the bar and band. We could hear the music and enjoy it without it being overbearing noise. We could still enjoy our conversation. Once we sat down we were forgotten about and it took 10 minutes before we could find someone to ask if we had a server. The server we ended up getting was nice and attentive.

Overall it was fine, but I don't really agree with most reviews, not as amazing as it sounded. Love the location and the outdoor seating with a very nice view, but the food could have definitely been better. Service was a little slow considering that they weren't that busy. If you are bothered by smokers, the outdoor seating are not smoke free and there isn't a smoking area.

EXCELLENT !!!! The service was outstanding and very prompt !!
Our server went out of her way to get us directions to an event we were going to attend. The food was outstanding. Lobster and crab ravioli was delicious and had a very appealing presentation. Eggplant parm was one of the best we ever had as well as the sautéed spinach Very impressed and would not hesitate to return.

It's been about 5 years since I was last there and this time brought friends that have never dined at Cafe Murano. Food and presentation were excellent, as well as superb service from Lou (Luigi). Atmosphere very conducive to everyday AND date night...Will and have highly recommended your establishment to friends and family. Will definitely return!!

Café Murano is simply a neighborhood gem. We locals like to keep this one as our little Seminole County secret! Have been numerous times for drinks, dinner, late night cocktails with live music...ALL OF IT and always AMAZING! Bartender Erika and Doug the server including the rest of them have become like family. One tip ...make reservations if you plan to sit for dinner. Otherwise go and enjoy the high top tables at the bar area and order some AMAZING brick oven pizza!

Great food, but poor service this time in the dining room.
Emailed manager about the experience and poor service ; no reply. It's unfortunate the manager doesn't have proper management and service skills either.

I arrived early and our table was ready and waiting. We asked for quiet and so were place well away form the bar / live band area.
Our waitress, Rebecca, was very accommodating with a special, silly request.
All of our food items were good, nothing spectacular and in my opinion over priced.

My family and I went here for the first time to celebrate my daughters birthday. We originally had a reservation for 1:30 for 8 but got there about an hour early. The staff was very accommodating and very pleasant and sat us very quickly. From the time we where seated our waitress Jessica was on point. Very friendly very out going and very help with the food selections and recommendations. As far as the food everything was delicious!! They even gave my daughter her choice of a free dessert for her Birthday. We really enjoyed our family celebration. :-)
