Perfectly cooked food; wide choice; need to book for busy times e.g. weekends and special holiday times. Live Music some evenings. The restaurant is adjacent to Crane's Roost, lakeside boardwalk used by locals for jogging. This visit the lake and lakeside walks were decorated with Christmas lights...very pretty setting.

Wonderful Sunday brunch. Stumbled upon the place looking for Macy's with a friend and decided to eat first before shopping. Opened at 11 a.m. and we went to the patio. I ordered the eggplant al forno and she ordered the Murano eggs benedict. We both loved our dishes. Everything was fresh and delicious, and the tomato sauce and hollandaise were... More

A lively eatery during the evening with good food and live music at the weekends. Does get very crowded - and noisy - but a great watering hole on a nice evening when you sit out with a drink and people watch.

Overall my wife ane I enjoyed the restaurant. The veal marsalle was excellent. The shrimp dish with egg noodles was ok. Not enough flavor and sauce. The atmosphere was very romantic and quiet. The only item overpriced was the desert: I paid $7.00 for a cannoli. I would definitely return.

We are so glad we decided to have our wedding at Cafe Murano. Everything was practically effortless. Our ceremony took place at Cranes Roost, and having a reception at Cafe Murano made it easy for our out-of-town guests to get around. Mary, the events coordinator, did a wonderful job keeping our wishes and concerns at ease. Our guests loved the... More

First time visit. In town for business and went with a group of ten people. We went on a Wednesday when they have a promotion on wine. Every two entrees receives a bottle of wine. Between that and previous reviews, we thought it would be great. Some of the food was great (eggplant) and some was average (spaghetti and meatballs).... More

We went to Cafe Murano based on some other reviews from Tripadvisor. I thought it lived up to the reviews. My co-worker and I both enjoyed our meals, and the service was friendly and attentive. We ate an early dinner so we didn't experience the noise from some of the previous reviews. I would definitely eat here again on my... More

My family recently celebrated birthday here. The stuffed mushrooms are my favorite appetizer bar none. A few of us shared the wild mushroom trio and the Rustica pizzas. Delicious is all I can say. Other family members raved about their dishes also. Price to portion is great. Everyone had to go boxes. Nice outdoor seating area with a view of... More

My husband and I stopped in after going to a movie next door. Great date night combo! Movie and Murano! Wine selection is one of the best, as are the micro brews. A great place for those bored with chain restaurants.

We stopped at Cate Murano after visiting a Latin Music Festival near Cafe Murano. I had a delicious pizza and the other guests enjoyed their meals. The band in the main dining-bar area was loud but we were seated in another room and the lack of load music was enjoyable. I would definitely try Cafe Murano again to see what... More
