nice service, great view

You'll get enough food for a second meal the next day! Not expensive, if you eat outside you can look at the park. They don't rush you out the door either. Very good chicken parm. Not the BEST italian in the area, but good for the price.

I have eaten here many times and they never fail to provide outstanding food and service. They make all the pasta themselves and my favorite is lobster and shrimp ravioli. Fresh ingredients throughout. They have a brick oven so there pizzas and flat breads are delicious. The steaks are well aged and fresh seafood are always available and they have... More

I was very negatively surprised after reading all previous reviews. I was in the area and was in the mood for a good lasagna. So after reading the reviews, I decided ro give it a try. The host, should be promoted to server, and the server fired. First words out of her mouth, "what you drinking?" I felt i was... More

I was in the mood for gnocchi and they had theirs in a red cream sauce. It was cooked perfectly and very tasty. I like mine spicy so the waiter said he would ask the chef to up the heat. The sangria was also very good. The wait staff was excellent and checked back often without disturbing our conversation. We... More

Days like today are why I love TripAdvisor. Traveling on business, I found myself in Altamonte and looking for a good lunch. My fellow foodies on TA indicate Cafe Murano. I never would have found this place on my own as it's off the main thoroughfare. My server, Christy, suggested the Vodka Penne. I ordered that along with a chicken... More

We visited Altamonte Springs Florida to visit a doctor in the area and forgot to check tripadvisor for our first night's dinner; we paid the price for not checking :-) After checking like we should have done in the first place, we discovered to our delight, that Café Murano is within short walking distance of our hotel so walked there...

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
