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

Atmosphere is nice but most importantly the food was great. The bruschetta was the best I had. Full of flavor, no soggy baguette. So far I have tried the chesse raviolis .. def not out of a package. My wife has tried the lobster ravoli, loved it and shrimp/scallop dish. This dish is not on menu but you can order... More

I have been to Cafe Murano many times over the years. This is a good place for a celebration or meeting over drinks. You will want to avoid their indoor seating during ladies night unless you want to watch the inebriated dance and don't mind loud music. The food is wonderful. I usually get a gourmet sandwich or pasta dish... More

Been here about 10-12 times already. My favorite dish is the Shrimp Scampi over pasta. Always cooked the same, always tasty! My husband Loves the pizza!!! Prices are fair and worth it. Lots of outdoor seating but the only con is the décor on the outside is Blah. With the view of the lake they should expand the outdoor atmosphere.... More

We were a party of 6 with a reservation. They gave us a perfectly-sized table right next to the window overlooking the lake. Waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu - we had one person who needed a low sodium meal, and he fixed her right up. He suggested a beer for me, which was wonderful (I had 2, and... More

Great food! It's a bit pricey but so worth it! The scenery isn't bad as it is right on the lake of Crane's Roost. Love this place!!

I had the Chicken Marsala which was excellent. My friends had Chicken parmesan which they also enjoyed. We also had Caesar side salads. The service was good. The price was reasonable. The entrees came with bread but the sides were ala carte. The atmosphere was pleasant and inviting.
