Love this restaurant

Everytime that I am in the Orlando area, I go to this restaurant. The food is excellent. Generally, the wait staff is good. I love the live band playing old school rock on the weekends. They should consider updating the decor to make this an excellent restaurant.

We and another couple met at Café Murano today, Easter Sunday, for brunch. I was surprised to find the restaurant almost empty. It is a beautiful location on Crane's Roost is located behind the Altamonte Mall. The lake is visible from the indoor and outdoor seating of the restaurant. There was a special brunch menu and all you could drink... More

Been a while since we had been there, returned with another couple for dinner. We'd been before for appetizers and drinks on the deck so weren't sure how a full dinner would be. Well thanks to Mary, one of the best servers we've had anywhere for a long, long time...we had a truly splendid night. We sat inside in the... More

If the weather is good, sit on the patio overlooking the lake. This is a nice setting. Margarita Pizza is delicious!

Excellent food and very flexible kitchen....... I saw a veal dish (Veal Piccata) on the menu that looked good, except I am no fan of veal. I asked the server if they could make it with chicken instead. She said "sure, no problem" and it was great. Very nice desserts also.

Food, service and location combine for a wonderful dining experience every time! One of my daughter's favorite restaurants, she even had her wedding rehearsal party there. Extremely accommodating even with small children in our party.

When traveling I always search Trip Advisor for new places to eat. Wow, glad I tried this place out. Great food selection, incredible atmosphere and the food was delicious. I was by myself so I sat at the bar but the staff was extremely friendly and great music played the entire evening. This is definitely a place to take your... More

The food was very bland and the drinks were very weak. Nice staff and that is all I can say positive about them.

I've been eyeing this place since we moved to Altamonte Springs a year ago. This afternoon was a perfect day to sit outside and watch the sunset after a day at the ballpark. And the food wasn't bad either. My veal was super tender, the sauce was well seasoned. It was so good that I wanted another plate (which says... More
