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

Cheap drinks on Friday before 7, live funk music, and decent tasting pizza make this a fun group atmosphere!

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
