Food was amazing... service was outstanding! Owner was there greeted all who approached him. Little pricey but to be expected before we arrived. No wait had a reservation we were at our table within a minute. Had a later evening reservation and I liked the owner was djing and turned it into a lounge. It was an overall wonderful evening.

The cafe Martorano experience is nothing short of spectacular. From the minute you sit down your treated as one of Steve’s family. Whether it’s Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas or Atlantic City the quality of Italian food is second to none. You couldn’t get any fresher. I can’t wait to go back.

Our dinner was delicious. The service was too aggressive for our
Taste. From the moment we sat down to eat, we felt rushed through out our entire meal. As a result, we did not enjoy our
Experience as much as we could have. We were dining with friends and wanted to enjoy and converse while dining but felt
Too rushed to enjoy. We even communicated this to the people serving us but it still continued throughout our meal.

I look forward to Florida business trips solely to eat here everytime I’m in the Miami area. I don’t eat Italian food at home in Southern California because it’s sucks so I save my craiving ms for Chef Steve’s REAL Italian food. You can taste his passion in every bite!

Wonderful dining experience with a very unique and energetic atmosphere. You have to try the Meatball Salad. All the dishes are made to order so the food takes a little more time to arrive. But, you won't be disappointed. We have never had a bad meal in all our trips there which speaks to the quality and consistency of the food.

The server tonight wasn’t the best we’ve had. Maybe it’s because the owners weren’t around. The food is hands down the best Italian we’ve had ever which keeps us coming back every time we visit FLL!

We booked the reservation as a special occasion several months back. We should have walked out when we were seated - the hostess had an attitude and stuffed five of us into a table for 4. I sat in an aisle and was bumped by everyone on the wait staff.
I’ll keep it simple—the food selections were limited, overpriced and awful. I ordered a chewy veal dish. The service was terrible. Before you finished your final bite they were removing your plate. There were two bright moments - the fresh mozzarella and getting into my car to leave.
If this restaurant was up north - it would have been closed years ago. Steve and his team can take their attitude and shove it - he has the nerve to say don’t bust his balls - you’re in a customer service business.

My sister and I took our Dad there for Father’s Day dinner, my Dad who is an old school Italian growing up in Coney Island Brooklyn with 11 Brothers and sisters, so all they could afford was Macaroni He said it was the best Macaroni and meatball he’s Had since his Mom was alive. Thank you to all the Staff at Cafe Martorano for making this a great Father’s Day for him.

We enjoyed every moment of our Father’s Day dinner at Cafe Martorano. Every time we go, they never disappoint, never anything short of INCREDIBLE food and service! It may be a little pricey but worth every single penny. The food is always fresh and absolutely delicious and the service is polite, kind, so knowledgeable on the menu and very attentive . I would recommend to any and every one!

Very rude hostess with altitude!! We asked if we can get a table in the main dining room instead of the side tables and she goes « if you want to wait 45 minutes «  in a rude sarcastic way... and we had a reservation!!
She really took away from the experience!!
