If you are looking for Italian food in Altamonte Springs THIS is the place to go! Ambiance is above average. Outside seating on Cranes Roost is a plus and recommended id the weather allows. Food is always fresh, delicious, and well priced. Great pre meal bread when you sit. Staff is always very friendly and accommodating.

In town on business. The ambiance of this restaurant would certainly make it good as a couples dinner. The waitstaff was very helpful and knowledgeable of their menu and drink list. I had an oven-fired pizza and it was very good. Food was served hot in a reasonable amount of time. I had a very good time here and would... More

Murano has great food and a wide selection of mostly italian cuisine. Across from Cranes Roost Lake, the place can accommodate many and does a fairy busy business on Friday and Saturday night. The restaurant has a handsome and large bar where locals gather after work for cocktails. The service is good most of the time but can get swamped... More

Love the food here. We're lucky to live nearby, never had a poor experience. Many types of seating options to include dining on the terrace with a view of the lake and park, a regular dining room, the more open noisy area and the bar. Great pizza from the wood fired brick oven. Enjoy!

Visited twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. Food was delicious. Highly recommend the penne a la vodka and the lobster ravioli and stuffed dates. All first rate food. Service was pretty good as well, but not outstanding.

We were looking for a new italian restaurant to try and we found and love Cafe Murano. The location can't be beat. We always sit on the deck to watch the lake, sunset and people in the park. The bread and olive oil is great and we usually share a caprese salad, which is always fresh and amazing. I have... More

I spent New Years Eve here. What a time! It was a blast! The food is amazing, they have live music. Service is great! And you can eat with a view of the lake!

We have been to Cafe Murano many times and really enjoy going there. We have tried a number of dishes and have never been disappointed. Our only issue is that while they have 2 outside eating areas they allow smoking in both areas. Seems simple to allow smoking in only 1 area.
