Martorano's Atlantic City Ratings and Reviews
Wonderfully-prepared choice ingredients made for a most enjoyable casual evening and meal--consistently the best Italian fare in Atlantic City. Spaghetti D.O. P and al dente Rigatoni Sunday Gravy were the highlights of our meal. Of course, a visit to Martorano's would not be complete without the world-Famous Meatball and Salad appetizer. It's not to be missed. Another delicious appetizer was fresh calamari with a unique blend of sweet and spicy chili sauce and diced hot peppers. The juxtaposition of flavors and textures were tantalizing. Fresh brewed coffee and espresso topped of the perfect meal along with Martorano's homemade waffles and ice cream. Yo cuz! When in AC you've got to visit Martorano's.
Love love love !!!! It our go to restaurant for all of our special
Occasions !!!! Food is incredible- energy is palpable!!! Steve is an amazing man with a gift like no other!!!! The vibe and positive energy can't help but make you happy and smile! If you want a quiet place this might not be the place for you!! On the other hand if you want a super fun and memorable night this is a must!!!
Drive down to harrahs and stayed overnight solely because I wanted to try Steve Martoranos cooking /restaurant ...and my son and I were amazed on how well polished an experience it was ..good was outstanding ...service was great ...would recommend anyone who knows or likes great authentic italian food try one of his locations asap !
I always find that their food is overly salty. I specifically asked not to add any extra salt to my meal and it came out so salty that I could not eat it. They did offer something else and even took the meal off the bill, but I was very disappointed. Also, I often find that the meals do not come out at the same time. I think the kitchen should have a better plan on when to start meals from the same table, so that they all arrive at the same time.
Not awesome! Went on a Sunday night. Service very slow and inattentive. Kitchen having a problem getting food out. This restaurant has an open kitchen in the center of the restaurant and seemed decently, if not heavily staffed. Same goes with servers. Dining room wasn't quite half full. 20 minutes before two cocktails arrived, 40 minutes before 4 stuffed clam app arrived. Over an hour later before entrees arrived. Very expensive for mediocre service and average food at best. I understand it's a casino restaurant, but the quality of service and food should be exceptional if you're demanding such high prices. On a positive note, it's a good looking dining room and bar! I appreciate the concept of an upscale south philly gravy house. Just poor execution and very pricey for an overall so so experience.
Had dinner with another couple this past Sunday evening. Had the meatball and salad and the eggplant stack apps....both wonderful and plenty for four to share. For entrees, the veal Sinatra was a hit for us girls while the guys had the veal parm and the shrimp diablo, both were quickly devoured! A bottle of Martarano's Chianti was enjoyed with our meal and key lime pies were shared for dessert. Food was outstanding!
A special thanks to our waiter, Michael H., for making our meal so great with his knowledge of the menu options and wine choices. For only being on the job for 3 weeks, he was so pleasant and checked back often to see how we were making out, even with having so many tables to wait besides ours. Best waiter we have had at this restaurant to date!
You Cuz! Martorano's in Atlantic City NEVER disappoints. We recently revisited our favorite Atlantic City restaurant and enjoyed every aspect of our evening. From the moment we checked in at the front desk we were made to feel welcome and appreciated. (Even Nick, the manager, stopped by our table during dinner to make sure that we were enjoying our evening.) Our appetizers were plentiful and delicious. Especially notable were the famous meatball and salad appetizer and the calamari. Clams Martorano was also fresh and enjoyed by all. All of our entrees were made with the choicest ingredients and were clearly prepared fresh. Spaghetti D.O.P featuring San Marzano tomatoes reminded me of my childhood and days and the food lovingly prepared in Nonna's kitchen. The 16 oz. Prime NY Strip special was prepared as ordered and did not disappoint. The lightly breaded chicken cutlet smothered in the most-delicious medley of summer vegetables was incredible. Coffee was fresh, cocktails throughout the evening were plentiful, and our desserts were phenomenal. Of special note was the homemade waffles and ice cream, which went perfectly with our double espresso and limoncello. After 9:30 or so, the dance floor exploded and our table enjoyed dancing, libations, and coffee well into the morning hours. Afterall, how could we leave such an inviting experience? We felt young again, and are certain you'll feel the same if you give Martorano's the chance. (Did I mention that the Head Chef even came to our table to check on our experience? Wow!) Our evening was perfect. When in Atlantic City you have to give Martorano's a try! We did about three years ago, and we've been hooked ever since.
Sherie, Jerry and all their assistant servers make sure you feel welcome and have every need satisfied. We were there on a Friday night so it was very busy. This is a no nonsense place that makes you feel at home. Direct and to the point, don't think they are going to coddle you, it's you want it? Or not?
Good food, a bit pricey, great service, without kissing your butt.
Every time we come to Atlantic City we make sure to have dinner here. The restaurant is beautiful and the food is amazing! The wait staff is always super friendly and attentive. Last night Jerry was our waiter and he was terrific! He was very nice and made excellent recommendations that we were glad we tried. Best chicken parm we have ever had and the Parmesan gnocchi was out of this world!
The food and service were horrible had to ask numerous times for a table set up numerous times for Bread to be brought. This place has really gone down hill . We have eaten here numerous times and never experienced such horrible service and food as we had last evening Asked 3 people for a glass of wine The salad was a salt mine the famous meatballs loaded with breadcrumbs and hard and my Sunday gravy was nothing but large chunks of fat over pasta. My husband didn't fare much better either for pasta that is supposedly always Al Dente his was marginally over cooked with strange tasting and textured sausage. We wrapped everything for the dogs and hightailed it out of there The chef sent over complimentary dessert which we just wrapped as we could not wait to get out of the restaurant. The only highlight were the long hot peppers. As I had that for my dinner with bread it was the only edible thing on the table. No grated cheese offered with the pasta and had to ask for pepper. Will never eat here again even with casino comp. used to be good but no more.
Pretentious restaurant with mediocre food and inattentive service. The restaurant was not crowded and people who came after us got served before us. Took 20+ minutes to get a refill on my iced tea. Breaking on veal was mushy with a huge glob of cheese that overpowered everything else. We are at this restaurant in Las Vegas and the food was MUCH better there.
I have been going to Harrahs for years. This is the first time I ate at Martoranos. Everything was perfect. Debbie was our waitress and she was very attentive. We had the clams for our appetizer and they were stuffed with shrimp and crab. They were delicious. I had the seafood with pasta, it was excellent. The chicken parmigiana was also really good with gnocchi. The Pinot Grigio house wine was great.
The restaurant is very entertaining with movies playing and then 70s disco music playing. The next time I go , I would love to hang out and dance. We had a really nice night and I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone!!! I will definitely be back!
I ordered the Veal Marsala, high quality Veal Scaloppine, with a boldly flavorful Marsala sauce.-Superb! (When I order this dish, I always ask for more Marsala-It is so good.) My wife had the Pork Chop with Vinegar Peppers and Mushrooms-Superb! We also ordered a dish of sauteed Spinach as a side. Both of these entrees are the best we have found anywhere! I would have loved to order a dish of the delicious Spaghetti D.O.P., but I knew that would be to much for one sitting. (Next time for sure.) Finished with the freshly made Waffles and Ice Cream (yes really). Service was excellent. Nick, the Manager, and Diana, the Chef, always provide a great dining experience. Another 5 star dinner at Martorano's!
Yo Cuz, Martorano's in Atlantic City never disappoints! Our Father's Day celebration was the perfect mix of a delicious meal, hearty cocktails, and exceptional service by Jerry in a lively, chic atmosphere. Be sure to try the meatball and salad entree as it is the best in the tri-state area. The pork chop entree and chicken piccata were moist, flavorful and delicious. Both were prepared to perfection, as was the crab special over al dente pasta. Did I mention how good the hot pepper appetizer was? Be sure to leave room for one of their signature fresh homemade desserts as they're the perfect end to the perfect meal. Oh yes, kudos to Eric Kopp who stopped by our table to make certain that our evening was perfect. Between his concern for our service, the hospitality of the hostess, and the efficiency of our waiter, Jerry, our evening could not have been better. Cheers to Martorano's!
