Enjoyed a lovely evening at Cafe Murano chatting with friends/former co-workers I had not seen in over 5 years. Eight of us were seated at a large, round corner table. Lighting was dim creating a peaceful ambiance. My husband and I shared a calamari fritta antipasti served with marinara sauce. Its texture and taste was quite good. Shrimp Farnesse for... More

A welcomed change to our previous experience at this location. We were warmly greeted by 2 Hostesses - who appeared to be working hard to accommodate a table arrangement for some other guests. As always on a Friday Night, the live entertainment of cover songs sparked the nightlife for the locals. As we were entertaining family for the weekend, we... More

Location offers view of Cranes Roost pond (though locals refer to it as a lake) and is close proximity to the Altamonte Springs Mall. Menu looks diverse, but found the food just average with uninspired presentation. If your looking for a bite before heading to the AMC Theater located behind the restaurant, you could do worse, though there are many... More

The food is great, have had a lot of what is on the menu, do not forget the pizza cooked in front of you at the bar and the service has been great every time I go, weekends are sometimes very busy. They have great bartenders that make great drinks.

We have been there a few times. The place has good food and we like the music from time to time. It has a nice view at sunset across the lake.

We've been dining at Café Murano for over 4 years. I think the only thing that saved this poor experience was the amazing food by the very talented chefs. Upon arrival, we waited an extremely long time to even be greeted. No one was at the hostess stand and all the servers would look over at us and dismiss us.... More

Came for dinner on a Friday evening with another couple. We had a 6:30 reservation and were seated immediately. The service was prompt and friendly. We ordered a variety of items off the menu and everyone liked what they ordered a lot. I had the Three Cheese Ravioli with a side of meatballs and it was fantastic. Since we were... More

I don't like to talk about service when I talk about a restaurant but there's always a time to set aside preferences and comment on the great service here. The waitress here was spot-on with every recomendation. We came in for a drink and ended up ordering some food. I tried the fried zuchinnis and had a couple drinks that... More
