Food was bland. Got our appetizer quickly (meatball and salad). Then waited 50 minutes to get our cold Sunday sauce (that had no sauce) terrible veal parmigiana and the only thing that was hot was the carbonara and it tasted like nothing even after putting an entire bowl of Parmesan cheese. Our waitress asked twice where our food was and wasn’t even apologetic. We’ve been too so many Italian restaurants and have never written a review before, good or bad. Just honestly wasn’t worth the money. We ran out of there after they took our plates. What a disgrace. My boyfriend and I were really looking forward to going to this restaurant and honestly we will never come back.
Unfortunately, Matarano's has become too big for their own good. We were seated at our table and ordered drinks and appys and they took almost 20 mts. to be served, then the waiter brought our entrees but all the appy dishes were still on the table. Either they were short-handed Sunday nite 2/18 or they don't care they are missing the mark. Will not go back here until I hear it's improved.....ESPECIALLY with Gordon Ramsay taking over The Steakhouse @ Harrah's !!!!!
I have been going to Martorano's since they opened and have never been disappointed. The orechetti with pancetta and cauliflower with bread crumb crusted top was out of this world. I highly recommend that this special become a regular menu item. If you have a chance to try it do yourself a favor and do so.
Service and staff is very friendly and prompt. Make you feel as family.
Poor quality food with fair service. Menu item descriptions were different than meals that arrived. Different ingredients.
Our server was hands down the best server we have ever had. His name was Hillsley ( maybe spelled wrong). I was disappointed with the food but the service was awesome! I saw online that the menu offered a vodka sauce but the menu didn't have that offered. He checked with the cook and she offered to make it special for me. I appreciated the effort but with so many people there, I could imagine it would take away from what she was already making. The food wasn't bad but my substitute meal just left something to be desired. Our local Applebees typically has more of a tasty sauce. The atmosphere was fun, but honestly, the gentleman that waited on us was the best part of the night, else this review would be much lower in stars.
Love the food and ambiance. The only downfall is the noise level. We could not hear our waiter telling us about the specials as it was way too noisy
Best service I’ve ever had! Food is delicious!
Wonderful experience. Great ambiance, service and food. Seating is spaced out enough that your meal is private, music selection was very fitting, service and staff was friendly, warm and attentive and the food was amazing. Can't wait to go back again!
Excellent!! Chefs are amazing. Waiters are great. Food is outstanding. Have been there 5 times and will def return again. Awesome
Service was poor
Started with Fried Mozzarella-Good. Followed by Pappardelle with Mushrooms-Very Good. I had the Veal Marsala and my wife had the Center Cut Pork Chop. Both Very good/Excellent. To full for dessert. Delicious dinner with excellent service.
Waiters were pushy and unfriendly. Weren’t attentive and we did not feel welcomed at all. Would never eat at restaurant in the future.
Great Food Great Service
Way too noisy....music too loud! Great staff and food!!
We were so impressed by this place ! Our new fav spot in AC!
Let me say I manage a small Hotel with a Restaurant on site which has great food and even better value. This dinner was way overpriced. Food is just good, if that. Ambiance is a bit confusing with movies playing around the restaurant and music (All different varieties) on as well. I spent most of the dinner distracted. Oh well . I won on the Wheel of Fortune machine afterwards so the night ended on a high note!
Being Italian and virtually eatten in every Italian restaurant from Philly to AC i had to try this place. The staff professional but warm and friendly. The food is second to none ! From first bite you taste the freshnesss and every ingredient pops out. Gnoochi was home made and firm not mushy. The clams and macaroni was the best ive ever had. The calamari was fried to perfection. Last but not least i have eatten meatballs in my life. As a true Italian would say "nothing beats my mothers meatballs". Well, Steven Marturano knocked it out of the park ! I will be back very soon!
Waitress told me the pork chop dish wasn't spicy and yet it was with peppers in it. Husbands veal parm was large portion but we weren't sure if it was cooked fresh or reheated cutlet. The eggplant stack was good. Noise level loud, wouldn't suggest it if you're looking for quiet dinner to catch up. Nice wine list
Food was good. Shocked at cost of specials that we ordered. Too loud and noisy.
The food was very good big serving. Our server was horrible
My husband wanted to get spaghetti with his chicken parmigiana the waitress said we can’t do that no substitutes.
Our time was amazing at Martorano’s!! The drinks were superb and our waitress, Digna, was personable and delightful. She made our evening memorable. The carbonara was outstanding. Thank you for a wonderful night!
Amazing! Our server Guille gave us the best service and care. It’s one of the reasons we always go back. Great atmosphere and just an amazing time
Food was not what we had hoped. Pasta was dry and cooked to al Dente for my liking. Very expensive for the little food that we had.
Food an atmosphere is excellent but very over priced
Stick with the menu...some specials are hit or miss. Take the cannolis...leave the branzino.
food was OK, seating was bad against a pillar even though most of the place was empty,
very noisy and bad lighting, service mediocre.
Was very disappointed that you could not substitute pasta for the risotto . No substitutions period. For a place that prides itself on making everything fresh and to order this was unacceptable especially for the price you are paying. The food was very good.
The gnocchi are terrible. They will not substitute, which is very odd for a restaurant "trying" to be upscale. We won't be going back. Food was average but prices were not.
Real Italian food, I was initially turned off by the greeting or lack there of when we got there for a 5 pm reservation but was pleasantly delighted with our waiter. The ambience is great, very romantic and the food is 5 star...I would absolutely go back, it's expensive so be prepared but well worth it!!!! The Dessert was delish!
Overpriced. Service was fair. Nothing to rave about. pretty disappointed overall
