I have been to Cafe Murano many times. The food is always very good and the service is always warm, friendly and attentive. For Antipasti the Calamari, Stuffed Meatball, Brussel Sprouts and Shrimp Diavalo are great choices. For Entrees the Lasagna, Chicken De La Casa, Eggplant Al Forno, Veal Picatta and Shrimp & Scallops Cecca are all fantastic. Their Bartenders... More

The service was excellent. Loved that they did not bring the entree until we were completely finished with salad. The food was excellent and liked the lasagna so much we ordered one to bring home as well as our entree there. Definitely recommend this as a couples location. The view of the lake and they gave live music on the... More

We eat here a lot, both lunch and dinner. We have never had anything but incredible meals. The relaxed atmosphere makes it a wonderful experience. My husband and I usually go alone or with other couples, but we've taken our grandchildren and they really enjoyed it.

Looking for a reasonably priced Sunday brunch and this fit the bill. Quiet even with music, so we can talk and enjoy each other's company.

The pizza is my favorite, fired in a brick oven, unique combinations, crust not too thick, great sauce! I love the bar area, beautiful granite and plenty of TVs but if you want a more quiet dinner you can sit in the dining room or outside. I love their steak salad, had many times, always fresh and is more than... More

Atmosphere: No. Food: Some, but not great. Fun: No. Empty at night: Yes. Good reason: Yes. Wish it were better than average, but it ain't. Shouldn't be long now.

Really enjoyed the dinner. Asked for and got shrimp parm. The shrimp were large and very good. The marinara was perfect. The mozzarella was great. Bread and evoo were just too good. Wait staff was friendly and helpful. I'll be back.

Thank Brent H
