Gwen, a local resident, has been a loyal customer at Cafe Murano’s for over 4 years.
Gwen describes this wonderful, local restaurant that currently has two locations, as “a kaleidoscope. The room is the tube, everything inside the room changes. Whatever mosaic is in the kaleidoscope changes often but is always fun and wonderful”. There is a core group of about 50 regular diners so even if you come in alone, you never stay alone for long. There are several bands that rotate throughout the course of six weeks or so; this rotation of bands appeals to a wide audience. The bands feature many genres of live music and play at the Altamonte Springs location every Friday and Saturday evening.
You can’t go wrong with any dish you choose on the menu. The menu tends to change regularly with special features added, so Gwen shared her favorites. The flavors of the Steak Salad are beautifully balanced and delicious.
Another favorite is the Stuffed Meatball appetizer; it is perfectly seasoned, stuffed with ricotta cheese, and topped with a delectable light tomato sauce. Gwen has found the portion generous enough to add a half salad to make the Stuffed Meatball appetizer a meal.
Maybe you’ll choose the Penne Vodka or the Eggplant al Forno as your meal. Most of the regulars will rave about the Lemon Cello Cake, sweet, delicious, and unique. It’s a signature dish that is made in house at Cafe Murano.
The bartenders serve up “martinis” that are reminiscent of a dessert sometimes, too, such as the Key Lime Pie or Tiramisu Martini. Delicious from start to finish!
Gwen says this is one of her favorite hangouts. The fun bartenders, good service, wonderful variety of music, and the creations of Chef Khai and Chef Scotty (as Gwen affectionately calls him) are unsurpassed.
Once you experience the kaleidoscope of Cafe Murano, you may call it one of your favorite places to eat and enjoy as well. Gwen shares her zest for life and food by saying at Cafe Murano, “It’s fun. You make your own fun!”. We invite you to come and try us soon.
