About Martorano's Atlantic City
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.

They originally put us near a wait station so we asked them to move us which they were very accommodating and did so. The coconut water ice martini was amazing as was the chicken special, meatballs, clams, and sauteed spinach. I heard it gets loud and hopping later, but we were done by 8:30 and it wasn't at all loud. Highly recommended. Would definitely go back.

Beautiful dining venue. We had a romantic booth. Food was excellent. Service was impeccable. We had a wonderful dining experience. We would definitely return again. For some it maybe a little pricey for an Italian Restaurant. But I must say that the portions were very generous and it was delicious! So for us it was great! Oh, and the martini"s were fabulous too! We'll be back!

Loved the meatballs and salad! My favorite. The Sunday pork and Rigatoni delish! Tasted just like my Italian family recipe. Quality ingredients for sure. The baked clams disappointed a bit. I make mine more lemony and the topping has a nice light oil crunch to the breadcrumb mixture. I didn't care for the soft breadcrumb topping. I'll definitely will be back to try a few other items. Kitchen was slow, even though it wasn't that crowded, but I guess freshly prepared takes time! I didn't mind because my hubby and I were comfy in our booth watching an Italian movie!

Chef refused to make minor changes such as cooking pasta a little more or changing an item due to food allergy! Left prior to eating due to waiter telling me I could leave if I didn't like it the way it was. RUDEST experience ever eating out!!! Would NEVER go back or recommend this place!

Atmosphere is very nice my wife had the chicken marsala which was very good I had the chicken parm which was dry thin not much better then the corner pizza place service was extremely slow the waiter said they were understaffed being a Wednesday

Our meal had an inauspicious start when we waited about ten minutes to be greeted, even though it seemed there were more servers than patrons. We ordered two bottles of wine which also took way too long. The server did a nice job of keeping our glasses filled for the rest of our meal. Our appetizers were very good and were somewhat timely, as well. The rough turn occurred during our main course service. One meal arrived first. About 5. minutes later, another meal arrived. It was not the correct meal (or even something similar.) The food runner took it back to the open kitchen, where I saw him discuss it with the chef; Then our waitress discussed it with them before walking off in a huff (all of this is the downside to an open kitchen.) A few minutes later, our waitress came and told us my meal would be out shortly. About fifteen minutes later (and well after my wife had finished her meal), I was delivered my meal. The seafood dish I was delivered tasted so strongly of salt, that I had to send it back. I don't think I've sent back three dishes in my life, so it says a lot about it. They did not apologize for anything to this point, but offered to get me something else. I declined, as I couldn't stomach another fifteen minute wait. When the server offered us dessert, my wife joked that it should be on the house. The server said she would, in fact, give us dessert on the house. Another fifteen minute wait produced a very dry, and not very good, tiramisu. Overall, not exactly a stellar night at a restaurant we had previously enjoyed. Hoping this isn't the start of a downward spiral.

Dinner was enjoyable. The Caesar salad and eggplant tower were exceptional. The "sunday gravy" was rather flat and the veal parmigiana was just ok. Dessert choice of layer cake with cream chees frosting was a mistake - more thick frosting than cake. Should have went with the Italian ices. Will try other dishes next time.

Every visit I make to Matoranos gets better and better. The food is plentiful and delicious. The other night I tried the veal piccata and was totally bowled over...wow!
The salads are big enough to share.
Best of all, the service is superb. Even if I come in alone, I am escorted to my favorite table and made to feel special. Every single diner who comes to a restaurant alone knows how unusual that is. I look forward to returning, with a group or solo, and know I will enjoy a scrumptious meal with thoughtful service.

We started off with the "famous" meatball salad. The meatball was flavorful but much smaller than I anticipated with a small serving of salad. It was enough for 2 people to split as an appetizer but was very over priced at $22. For my entree I had the chicken Parmesan. It was tasty but the breading was soggy and the gnocci that came with it were bland and tasteless. My wife had the linguini and clams and the clams were so over cooked she couldn't eat them but the pasta and sauce were excellent. She told the waiter about the clams and he said they were a lot bigger that night than they normally are and apologized. For dessert were split a piece of chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting. This was one of the best cakes I've ever had and the frosting was so rich it was like cheesecake layered between chocolate cake. My only issue with it was that it was priced at $14 for a slice. Overall I'd say the service was excellent. The food was good but not great and VERY over priced for what you get. Unless I was on a casino comp again I wouldn't return as I didn't find the place to live up to the hype that surrounds it.

Extremely nice restaurant. Made to feel like an insider. Like one of the family. Really enjoyed the fact all they played was Frank Sinatra. Service was incredibly fast for as crowded as they were. Food was quite tasty.
Only problem, my date got serious food poisoning, I had a lesser case. We shared a meat ball salad, the steak, the lobster, and both drank ice water from the pitcher, so it's impossible to say which one in particular was the culprit.
It's very unfortunate because everything else was just wonderful.

Went there for a Birthday dinner with my wife. Started with the Spicy Calamari and Eggplant Stacked, two of Martorano's signature appetizers. Both were superb and a great way to start the dinner. For the entree, my wife ordered the Pork Chop. She said it was the best Pork Chop she has had anywhere, top quality with mushrooms, peppers and a delicious sauce. I had the Chicken Marsala, also top quality with the uniquely bold and delicious Martorano's Marsala Sauce-Excellent. For dessert, the homemade Waffles with Vanilla Ice Cream was a perfect ending to a great meal. As we were having dessert, Nick, the General Manager, and his entire team came over to sing Happy Birthday! Service was excellent, and the ambiance was vibrant. A birthday celebration with great food, great fun and great people. Thank you Nick and Team!

carbonnara was fairly good but the baked clams had an outstanding flavor, unfortunately the clams them self were really to tough to eat. and god knows i tried !! the chef should never send food of this quality out of the kitchen i had the same foods at matoranos in las vegas at the paris hotel 10 days ago and it was absolutely superb , i guess they have a far better chef !!!

The food was amazing as always. The service could be better, I was not impressed and was very frustrated. Me and my boyfriend were celebrating my birthday and I felt our server forgot about us as soon as a party of 10 was seated. I understand large party's can take time to get orders but it was clear our server had no interest in assisting us. We would have stayed for dessert and another drink but we couldn't get him to come to our table for 30 mins. So we asked the buss boy to get Our check then our server wanted to assist us by that point we were frustrated and left.

The old school Italian look and feel. Hats from the day are a good touch. TVs had football on one side of room and the movie Godfather on the other side. Food was very good. Taste,portion, menu, were very good. Our waitress was very attentive with a nice professional demeanor. W ill be back again as we have thoroughly enjoyed the meal.
