When Al Pacino says your homemade meatballs are the best in the world, you’re onto something special. Restaurateur and Philadelphia native Steve Martorano—the “Godfather of Italian-American cooking”—brings his bold flavor and flair to Atlantic City with his first location in the northeastern United States.
Bring your appetite, because you’ll want to mangia the entire menu of Italian classics. Order up Martorano’s Signature Eggplant Stack, South Philly Cheesesteak, Rigatoni with Sunday Pork Gravy or Bucatini Carbonara and see why it doesn’t get better than this down-home, red-sauce Italian restaurant. Oh, and don’t forget Pacino’s favorite meatballs in the world.
More than just a restaurant, Martorano’s is also a happening night spot. So come for dinner and stay for the party. Start the evening musically with Sinatra, Martin and Darrin. Then light it up with R&B, disco and hip-hop with a pinch of classic rock peppered in. This unique concept has attracted the attention of today’s hottest celebrities and reality TV series.
So don’t just make dinner reservations. Book an immersive experience at Martorano’s!
"Martorano’s combines exceptional food, music and movie entertainment to create the most unique dining experience. We are not for everyone nor have we claimed to be. If you get “ IT ” you will have the time of your life, if you don’t we’re just not for you. Enjoy our state-of-the art sound and lighting system that sets the scene with anything from Classic R&B and Disco to today’s Hip - Hop and Classic Slow Jams. Our High-definition televisions throughout the restaurant shows scenes from many of my favorite movies. Keep in mind the movie content may be R-rated and contain 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 – 2am if warranted, 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"

The restaurant is conveniently located inside Harrah's Casaino / Hotel. The food is very good and they do have specials consistently with top quality ingredients yeildong flavoraful dishes. Noise level is high but tables are spread apart which iw really nice. Staff continues to provide a high level of service. It's a great place and be aware prices reflect it.
Started off with the Calamari for appetizer. A sweet, spicy flavor that is not the expected in an Italian -American restaurant but was uniquely delicious and really was a great start to the meal. Entrees were hard to chose, everything looked so good, but we eventually settled on two of the new entrees on the expanded Specials menu for the night: A First Cut 16 Oz. Veal Chop in a Florio Marsala Wine Sauce, Melted Fontina Cheese & White Mushrooms-Excellent! The second entree was Red Snapper Francaise, White Wine, Lemon, Butter, topped off with Jumbo Lump Crab Meat-Exquisite! The new entrees were a delicious addition, and we can't wait to go back to try more!
You can feel the passion in our server Signe and assistant Juan. Our expectations were exceeded in the quality and presentation of our food. The chef made an exception on my pasta request and prepared it superbly. This was not our first experience but our best one yet. Now, keep it going forward.
