This place is always consistent with great food. Service is not always consistent. I had the lobster and crab ravioli. It is made fresh and from scratch and the taste is out of this world. Definately a place to frequent. Specials are always unusual and tasty. On a mild night, sit outside and enjoy the view of the lake.

The bread was the absolute best, but everything we had was extraordinary, from the shrimp scampi (large, perfectly cooked shrimp, seasoned just right) to the homemade ravioli (spinach & cheese stuffed with Alfredo sauce, grilled prosciutto and peas was my favorite, but the Ossa Buco was also GREAT!), it was just AWESOME. A specialty drink called Alpine something (vodka and... More

Excellent service and food. We sat outside by the water. Cranes Roost is so beautiful by day or night. We did dinner. Our out of town guests and we enjoyed it.

The best Pizza anywhere and very good entrees. The view of Crane's Roost Park is lovely and there is outside dining. It can get a bit noisy but it's a great place to meet and greet.

Bread was yummy dipped in the olive oil, balsamic and herb mixture. Meatballs and spaghetti, eggplant rollatini, and veal piccata over pasta, were delicious. Service was excellent. My only complaint was the tap water was so heavily chlorinated , it was vile. They should filter their drinking water.

I was with a group of 13 people. Our server was a lot of fun and very accommodating. The appetizer bar was plentiful and delicious. The meal choices and food was excellent. Unfortunately, they had several tv's with the current football game on and blaring. The majority of my party was into football and they sat there staring at the... More

We love Café Murano as a place to go for dinner so we thought we would try the NY's Eve party as it was close to our home. We had a blast. They did a great job with the antipasta in the early evening then the meal was very good ( not great , but for the occasion it was... More

I have read the reviews and perhaps it was just my order of the meat ravioli but I'm certain by far that they were not the best. The marinara sauce was tasty but the meat filling inside had no flickr at all. I began wondering what it was really made of? In addition, the craft beer also didn't taste very... More

Went to grab a quick dinner for 4 and were told it would be a 30 min wait. Even though there were 5 tables open in the bar we could not us them. An hour later the tables were still open... Very poor management and not friendly.
