Straight to the point: Food- just ok, NOT great. Service- HORRIBLE! You get what you pay for doesn't hold true at this place. Over priced for the quality. I would NOT go back for a free meal! We visited the location at the Paris Las...More

Great venue with a great buzzy ambiance on our Sunday night visit (although I hear it can very loud Thursday through Saturdays). We sat at the bar. The cocktails were excellent, the service was excellent and the food was excellent.

Don't waste your money. Average Italian American food and extremely rude service. They make you feel like they are doing you a favor while charging $32 for a mediocre veal parmigiana! Overrated food and sub par service. Spend your money elsewhere where you are treated...More

Service was very good, the young man said he was new to the business about 2 years. Did a great job. Food was good to average nothing over the top. Can get loud which is not my thing, but could be yours.

Cafe Martorano is a haven of excellent authentic Italian dishes. Every dish on the menu has its own unique flavors. It's a wonderful party in your mouth. The ambience is elegant with melodic overtones to to give a smooth dining experience.

The place attracts wanna be celebrities and the people watchers who love to love them. The staff are obnoxious ignorant snobs but pay no attention. Wear jeans and enjoy the food if it's still any good. Sliding standards and... More
