Absolutely extraordinary food and service. I've been visiting this restaurant often for dinner since the day it opened. Never, have I been disappointed in the fabulous food and service at this establishment!

Staff & good wine choice made up for mediocre food that was over priced. Next time buy fast food and sit in the park across the street.

3 out of 4 of us ordered the ribeye after specifically asking about their steaks. A 12 oz supposedly aged ribeye was thin, tough, and very disappointing. Their pasta dish was good. Waitress Debbie really steered us wrong on their steaks and the "special" of adding shrimp. Three small shrimp ended up at $9 each - complete ripoff. Her attitude... More

If you are looking for Italian food in Altamonte Springs THIS is the place to go! Ambiance is above average. Outside seating on Cranes Roost is a plus and recommended id the weather allows. Food is always fresh, delicious, and well priced. Great pre meal bread when you sit. Staff is always very friendly and accommodating.

In town on business. The ambiance of this restaurant would certainly make it good as a couples dinner. The waitstaff was very helpful and knowledgeable of their menu and drink list. I had an oven-fired pizza and it was very good. Food was served hot in a reasonable amount of time. I had a very good time here and would... More

Murano has great food and a wide selection of mostly italian cuisine. Across from Cranes Roost Lake, the place can accommodate many and does a fairy busy business on Friday and Saturday night. The restaurant has a handsome and large bar where locals gather after work for cocktails. The service is good most of the time but can get swamped... More

Love the food here. We're lucky to live nearby, never had a poor experience. Many types of seating options to include dining on the terrace with a view of the lake and park, a regular dining room, the more open noisy area and the bar. Great pizza from the wood fired brick oven. Enjoy!
