We had a decent sized group and they worked to get us a table quickly. Our server was great. Our party had a variety of food and it was all great. I asked for shrimp part which wasn't on the menu, but they made it for me and it was incredible. Who wouldn't love cheese, fried shrimp and marinara sauce?... More

Great atmosphere at table outside with a lakeside view. Got pizza and it was fabulous. Not very good choices for wine and way overpriced, but the beer was cold and service was great!

Went to Café Muranos on Saturday night to hear the band (8:30 til about midnight), and was surprised that the food was excellent! Try the clam/linguine. For what I thought was just a place for the "oldies" music, I was pleased at the food and service, too.

We tried Cafe Murano based on the reviews and were a little disappointed. The stuffed meatball appetizer was good except for the hash browns that were under the meatballs and sauce. When you put sauce on a hash brown it gets soggy. Don't know whose idea that was but time to rethink that one in my opinion. Also, hash browns... More

I've lived in Altamonte for quite some time and had never been to Cafe Murano. Boy was I missing out! I happened to order take out one day and was very surprised. I had the lobster ravioli, which was delicious. Since I have a major sweet tooth, I ordered the brownie a la mode. It was outstanding!!! They have an... More

The live music on Friday made this a pleasant place to share an evening with friends. Food is tasty but far from gourmet. We have no regrets, though.

We selected this restaurant based on the reviews. Pro's: Pizza, pizza, pizza. It was wonderful. Service was good too! Con's: Fish and capers dish was too fishy for our taste. Construction made parking a little difficult for us newbies to the area.

The hotel recommend this restaurant because I asked for something within walking distance to the hotel. The restaurant has a nice outdoor seating area that overlooks the lake. The menu is very nice and they have a good wine selection. I had the bruschetta and the spaghetti with meatballs as my main course. They both were very good. The service... More

We were in town for a tennis tournament and wanted a good Italian meal. I checked Trip Advisor, one of my favorite websites while traveling, and found Cafe Murano! I made a reservation on line via open table and when we arrived the hostess was nice enough to tell us that the table they had reserved for us was a... More

Went there for a business dinner, and had appetizers and a fixed menu. Everything was excellent, including the service.
