Please visit our website for more information including menus, reviews and photos, or stop at our bar to smell the roses. <br />Jackets are required. <br />For lunches only, if the room upstairs is available, we may accommodate gentlemen who prefer not to wear jackets at lunch upstairs.<br />Electronic Devices, Cell phone, Blackberry, Laptop Computers... and misbehaving children are not allowed to annoy our guests. We recommend the care of a loving babysitter for the latter, and as for the use of electronic devices, we recommend another restaurant.

"We went here for a business lunch at 12:30 and did not leave until 2:50. I understand lingering over one's food for a dinner, but we were three people in suits so obviously we wanted to move things along at a normal (forget rushed, just normal) pace. One of our party ordered the tuna special and ordered rare, and it came out well done (i.e. dead and grey looking). Even the waiter was surprised. The re-do was arguably medium but we just needed to get out of there at that point. The other items we ordered were very delicious, so it's a shame that one dish spoiled the whole experience (as well as the 2+ hours it took to get that food), but when you're paying that much, and there is a dress code etc. where they are clearly striving for a certain standard, they fell well short. Too many other choices to go instead of this one."

Martorano's combines exceptional food, music and movie entertainment to create the most unique dining experience. Enjoy our state-of-the-art sound and lighting system that sets the scene with anything from Classic R&B to Disco to today's Hip-Hop and Classic Slow Jams. Our high definition televisons throughout the restaurant show scenes from many of my favorite movies. Keep in mind the movie content may be R-rated and contains scenes not suitable for children under the age of 18. If you want to have a business meeting or family dinner join us between 6pm and 10pm when you can listen to classics from Sinatra to John Coltrane. From 10pm till 2am, the music kicks up and the party begins. If you see this concept anywhere in the world, know it began at Cafe Martorano in 1983.

"If you go to the website, they hit you over the head that their pasta is "AL DENTE." We each got a pasta (bucatini carbonara & the Sunday gravy) and both of these were ridiculously undercooked. If you are now saying "this is probably a person who doesn't know what al dente really is," think again. I am Italian, have been cooking Italian for 20 years, and have eaten in countless Italian restaurants around the world. This place is just lazy & trimming their prep time by trying to sell it as "al dente." On top of this, the whole concept is misplaced. It turns into a club at 10PM & becomes literally impossible to hear anything. In short, not worth the $. Plenty of other places in AC for Italian food or clubs -- you don't need them in one place."
