AWESOME!!!!!! The Best Restaurant In The WORLD! Thank You
Service was terrible! Took guests for their first time and I was embarrassed!
BEST BEST BEST from the bread and olive oil to dessert. You want the best, eat here!!
It is our favorite spot and it never disappoints!! The best food, I love the homemade mozzarella. Jose" is our favorite waiter an Steve plays the best music in town! We take all our friends there and they fall in love with it also. We will be back soon!
We love it!! Of all the best locations... FLL is the best of all!! The music is amazing. I had a huge Surprise 50th party planned for my husband last year and due to my dad passing I had to cancel. This year I had a Surprise 50/51 party planned and canceled to due COVID-19. Instead, he and I had an amazing dinner last Saturday night and enjoyed ourselves immensely ♥️
The food is always excellent!!
Gave this restaurant a second chance . First time had reservation for 8 people at 8 pm for my husbands 50th birthday and didn't get a table till 10:30 - we left and went across the street to a very accommodating Greek restaurant. My 50th birthday was the other night and had a table for 12 people. Due to a medical emergency me and my husband had to fly back home. Not only did Cafe Martorano charge the existing party for our plates ($125 each) They also didn't provide the planned menu and made no apologies. Will never return due to poor management and a staff with no moral compass. They put the check on the table and were asked to leave.
A one of a kind dinning experience like no other. Fantastic Italian Food and exceptional service!
Fabulous food, great service and loved the music !!!
Steve always does it right.
Incredible food as always!!!!
Food was fabulous! Waiter and staff were knowledgeable and professional. Excellent night
Staff was not very friendly. Food was good but not over the top.
We found the food and service to be exceptional. Many lively groups in attendance.
Always excellent food and service. A truly exceptional dining experience!! Our favorite restaurant in South Florida!
When I walked in I felt like I was in someone's home. I was welcomed and so were my kids. Once our table was prepared according to our reservation we sat down and was greeted by staff. The server did an amazing job telling us the promo items and explaining them further since it was our first time there. He also went over the food and drink menu a little more as we asked. The other staff were very attentive in bringing bread to the table, clearing our dishes that we were done with, and boxing our food that we needed boxes were. Steve (the owner) was there on the line in the kitchen as well as mixing up music. For one you hardly see restaurant owner's on the line in the kitchen so that stood out big time for me since I was in the restaurant industry for over a decade. Also my youngest daughter enjoyed his DJ skills since that is her career goal so to see that closeup was awesome. Overall vibe was like family, laid back with a sense of fine dining, which was an awesome mix.
I brought my daughter and a friend because they have heard from us how fun it is....(we have come the last 3 times we were down here from New York) this time there was no music, no dancing and no fun movie interaction... perhaps becaus it was a Sunday night ( my previous visits were on the weekend)- perhaps it was because of his loss (for which we send condolences to the family)... however, the food was delicious - and after all - isn’t that why we go to a restaurant?
Always a fun night
The best food I ever had!
This is our favorite restaurant. I brought my wife here for her birthday dinner. Never disappoints
Always outstanding food and service. Are favorite restaurant in South Florida!!
Three times in 1 week. Need we say more. #biggestfans

I WISH I COULD GIVE 10 STARS! MY FAMILY AND I LOVE CAFE MARTORANO & THE EXPERIENCE IS ABSOLUTELY OVER THE TOP INCREDIBLE EVERY TIME WE GO. THE FOOD IS OUTSTANDING AND SO IS THE WAIT STAFF. I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT THIS RESTAURANT. THE BEST ITALIAN YOU WILL EVER EAT!
From start to finish the food was above and beyond The calamari was excellent as was the meatball & salad the main courses were excellentThe desserts and cappuccino was also great , the noise level was like being in any other restaurant , the food is top shelf along with the staff
Awesome experience. Nice vibe
Great food and atmosphere as always! The steak is a great addition to the menu.
What about the Grouper Stack with Mashed Potatoes between each stack, topped with Spinach & Tomato’s sautéed together. This is dynamite! And the Shrimp Scampi, and the Linguine and clams,shrimp & Lobster. What a Meal. Great,great, & Great! Thank you, Steve!
Absolutely the best Italian food in the state!!!! And great service too. Been a regular here for as long as they have been in business.
Way too extremely, ridiculous, incredibly loud. I like loud music in a club, or anywhere, actually. But the DJ was rattling the dishes on the table so intensely, it was impossible to have even the most basic conversation for the entire dinner.
My Go To restaurant when I am in Fort Lauderdale. Been eating here for almost 10 years and it never disappoints. The Food and the Service is always amazing!!!
Great atmosphere and a true treat to all your senses.
Great experience. The food is amazing and the vibe is lively.
Yellowtail prepared by Steve Martorano was terrific! We all had it and really enjoyed it. The wine, the drinks, the appetizer, the meal! Then Comes the Dessert by Marsha Martorano! The was nothing but crumbs on the plates after we devoured the Carrot Cake. A great way to start Lent. Thank you, Steve!
Best restaurant experience in S Florida if not the USA. Great team and perfect harmony!!
Great, great, great and great were the 4 Meals we had at Cafe Martorano last night! The Grouper was back on the menu and is one of Steves’s Best of all times. And don’t forget Marsha’s Deserts. We cleaned the platter. What a terrific meal. We will be back.
