About Martorano's Atlantic City

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.

Martorano's Atlantic City Ratings and Reviews

We were three people at Harrahs AC for a conference. Although one of us was allergic to potatoes the restaurant would not substitute the gnocchi that came with the meal for anything else. At $39 for a small portion of Chicken Parm and no substitutions it was shameful. The service was terrible, we waited more than a half hour without water or bread and the waiter telling us he will be right back. The quality and the taste of the food wasn't better than any pizzeria. There are far better restaurants at Harrahs and in AC

I was disappointed in the food at Mataranos. I have been to his Fort Laurderdale location. There is definitely a difference in the food. Delicious food great atmosphere. The Atlantic City location, portions were small. Chicken parm. was cold. It tastes lke commercial food. its best when Steve Matarano is cooking in the kitchen.

Our dinner on Sunday, September 4th did not meet our expectations. The waiter who was very attentive to his "regular customers", ( even sitting down at their tables)- certainly wasn't attentive to my husband and myself.
At our table, however we eventually received bread and oil by a second waiter after our first appetizer was finished. Then our waiter brought more bread and oil, and hand stacked the new bread with the old. When he brought bowls over to split the pasta that we ordered, there was a black speck in the bowl. He wiped the speck out with his hand and then used the bowl to serve our pasta.
While the food was good, the experience was from from what one expects at a gourmet restaurant.
We did speak to Nick, the manager when we left, who said this was not acceptable and asked us to come back "someday" and see him and he would take care of the meal.

The BEST restaurant in AC hands down!!!!! If you haven't been there you need to make a reservation!!!
Steve takes great pride in his restaurants and it shows in every aspect!!!! The vibe here is so alive!!! He has Tv's going all around the restaurant and music playing. When an iconic part of the movie plays the sound on the tvs go up and the music goes down. It's not odd to see people getting up mid way through their meal to start dancing.
The food is authentic Italian! Everything is delicious!!! I am 100% Italian and very fussy. His food is spot on always!!!!!We go for all of our families special occasions and recommend to anyone that will listen to us!!!! We have gone so far as to buy his cookbook. My husband has perfected "The Cheesesteak"!!!! And I the "Meatball and Salad"!!!! We have been to his AC location, Ft. Lauderdale and Vegas! !00% consistent!

I have been to Martoranos in AC 4 times and Las Vegas 2 times. AC outshines the Las Vegas location.
Food is excellent, service was good and the wait staff very helpful and nice.
The first time they had this Shrimp Scampi with Italian bread soaked in the scampi sauce- that was out of this world.
they no longer offer this on menu- they should put it back on...

Very interesting experience . Food Great Authentic Italian .. If you like high energy this is the spot for you . If you are uncomfortable with loud music and lights like a nite club then it might be a little uncomfortable .. Felt like a modern 1950s. Dinner Club ...

This is my fourth time at Martorano's and I want to like it. My issues are, music and band too loud, food is not made to the way you wanted to be cook. The prices you pay for the food should reflex the way you want it cooked. I don't understand the issue about HARD pasta(like it cooked)) and trying to get extra sauce(gravy). What's so hard about that.

Started with The Eggplant Stacked, a signature Martorano's dish-Excellent. My wife had the Calamari with a sweet and tangy flavor-Very Good/Excellent. I had the Chicken Parmigiana with Gnocchi for entree, and my wife had the Halibut-both Excellent. Dessert was The Deconstructed Cannoli with and Espresso for me and a Cappucino for her-Very Good/Excellent.
Service was attentive but not obtrusive-Excellent. A very enjoyable dining experience.

I made this reservation for my director and a colleague. He was very impressed with everything from the meal, wine to very to the attentive staff. We had the calamari and sea bass which we all agreed was better than other restaurants we have dined in. We were there for the Blacks in Government Conference which will also be held at Harrah's next year. I plan to bring another group! Thank you so much!

All the food that we had was delicious and we will tell all our friends who frequent A/C to try it. The portions were large and I was able to take half of my main course for lunch the following day and savored every mouthful.

I made a reservation for 3 at 8:30pm and waited at the bar for cocktails and by the time we received them, we were asked to be seated. Our server was Christian and he was outstanding!
The food was delicious, the service impeccable and the music was entertaining, a bit of old school!

They sat us at a table next to a work station. The hosts and staff constantly kept passing our table rather than using the outside aisle. The customers that the hosts were seating kept touching the top of the empty chair at our table. Who does this??? I was getting very upset about this. The hosts and staff should realize how rude it is to the customer seated at this table. They took the easy route. If they are going to do this move the table or the work station.

We had to ask and wait to long for a response many times for something needed at the table.
Veal parm needed more sauce and had to wait and remind waiter. For a high class restaurant it left a lot to be desired. It was not worth the cost. Sorry. BAM

My daughter suggested Martorano's this year for my birthday dinner. I have to tell you that Being 100% Italian, I have yet to be impressed with any Italian restaurant, so I went and as usual ordered my "gravy" on the side . The crusty Italian bread, house salad, and fried mozzarella, did impress,however, when my gnocchi was served, I pointed to the open kitchen and joked that If she wasn't already dead, I would have to go see if my Mom-Mom was the cook because they looked just like hers! (By the way, LOVE the statue of the blessed mother on the counter, another authentic touch that made me feel at home!) anyway, I put a little gravy on the gnocchi then tasted. It took 25 years for an Italian meal to bring tears to my eyes! Most of my family died before my children were born, so they never got to experience a multi generational Italian family dinner, however, while at your restaurant that evening, I was inspired to share their stories as we ate which made for a most memorable birthday!

Unlike its predecessor at this location, Paladino's, Martorano's is not a fine dining establishment. What it serves does happen to be exceptional Southern Italian cuisine. But, expect it to arrive in rapid fire time, regardless of any attempt to slow down the service. And the simple things that a finer restaurant would offer, such as a middle pasta course, are not permitted here. "We don't do three courses, here," informed our waiter. A cheese course with port, also, not available. It's kind of a shame they have positioned themselves as such, because this place has the food foundation to be a very special restaurant.
It's a good place to go if you're catching a show that night because you won't be lingering or dining at a casual pace.
