Extremely over priced. The food was fair I've had better italian food at far notable restaurants for less money. Also when we checked in for our reservation the hostess made a comment under her breath about us booking through open table

I never complain about the prices at a fine restaurant, but I have never had lasagna for $36 nor a 8oz bottle of coke for $4 each. I don't feel price is justified.

We went the night of the Miami heat play off game. They seated us right away every tv was on so we couldn't miss a thing. Then the food started coming the crowd was getting bigger and bigger the place was rocking. The food the service and the people watching was a 10 . I also love that there's no little kids running around. Just a hot spot to get unbelievable Italian food Big fan

The food was good but nothing out of this world, I think it was little pricey. I went for dinner and everything was fine until the music started, it gets too loud and it was very difficult to have a conversation without screaming.

We went for my husband's birthday. Had an AMAZING time! DJ was awesome! Everyone in the restaurant seemed to be having a great time. Food was great! Everything we ordered exceeded our expectations! The only negative is that we haven't tried this place sooner.

My wife and I went there four our anniversary dinner since we like to try new places each year. This place was not the most romantic place in the world with it's TV's and loud music, but overall we had a nice time. The meatball was really good and our entrees were pretty good. I think it is a little over priced for Italian food but we knew what we were getting into. My entree was served to me about 5 minutes before my wife revived her meal which I found pretty odd. Overall it is was a good experienced but I most likely won't be going back anytime soon.

Went to Martorano's before a show at Hard Rock live. Location is definitively perfect if you going to Har Rock, right accross. The food was good, definitively over priced but good. The service was not that great, although the service staff introduced themselves, I was not ask for if I wanted a second glass of wine, we were a party of two and my dish came out 10 minutes before my guest plate.... The place is not fot for foodies at all, menu is limited, it is very loud and very hard to converse. It is definitively an happening place that cater to a younger crowd who hjs no problem building credit card debts.

They have come a long way to now being more friendly. When they first opened they were so sobby and unfriendly. The waiters would rush you and were very difficult. This dinner was lovely, not rushed and the waiter was friendly. The food....OUTSTANDING! What flavor! Fun place, good drinks. Very high priced for what you get though. In the go-go days maybe that went over but in today's economy...well they might want to get with the real world.

Food was very good!!! I have never had such bad service...we ordered cocktails and he brought us the wrong drinks..he was not busy. Also had to ask for bread, had to ask for salt and pepper. It was 8pm and they were sweeping around our table and moving chairs to clean. When our bill came he just put it on the table, did not ask if we wanted coffee or dessert.so that was my final draw, the check was 250.00 and not worth it due to the service. I will not go back due to this service.

Loved the food, but felt they could have been a bit more flexible in making food modifications in light of the fact they said the food was prepared at the time of the order. For example, would like the eggplant salad and calamari app to be able to be made grilled , versus breaded and fried.

YO CUZ I love this place, my husband and I took my mother here for her birthday/mother's day dinner; we are all born and raised from Philly so we KNOW good food; I'm half Italian I have to say that Steve's meatballs holds its own but they don't hold a candle to my gram's (sorry CUZ my gram from south Philly and so is my mom). We had fried calamari "Italian style" A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. mom had the meatball & salad, hubby had the chicken marsala (3 huge pieces of chicken) I had the linguine with A LOT of HUGE FRESH CLAMS in white wine. Their pricey but the amount of food they serve with the quality makes up for it. We were so stuffed; it was so good we kept eating but we didn't have room for dessert. STEVE DID 215 PROUD!!!

Portions that were once abundant are now inadequate - what was once enough for two people now barely feeds one - chicken parmagiana as an example - the smallest imaginable wedge of chicken breast and seven tiny pieces of gnocchi. When two of the same appetizer are ordered, they are combined into one serving barely larger than a single portion (at double the price). Service was appallingly bad (rushed and unprofessional). Drinks were poor and expensive - a dry martini is served as ice water with a shot of gin. The already loud background noise of the spooled movie scenes is now deafening - making conversation impossible. Matorano's has gone steeply downhill - a very disappointing experience.

After having eaten in the original Cafe Martorano's in Ft. Lauderdale many times I was concerned that the quality of the food may have slipped because Steve is spread thin with the two spots in S.Fla in addition to the new place in Vegas. However my concerns were quickly alleviated after a great meal @ Martorano's. As a S.Fla resident I still prefer his location in Ft. Lauderdale because the experience is entirely different @ the tourist-driven Seminole Hard Rock. The restaurant is beautifully built around a huge bar in the center of the restaurant but it seems more geared to an "event" crowd rather than a true foodie scene. The entrees are pricier than they are in Ft. Lauderdale but the food does not suffer in any form and is outstanding.

This was the second time we dined at the Hard Rock location and once again, thoroughly enjoyed it. Service is great and the food is excellent. The fact that you can order anything from a sub, salad or a pizza to an elegant seafood risotto, which by the way was amazing, is a plus. Knowing we were going to the show, the staff was very attentive, yet we didn't rush us. We will be back!
