I brought my mother to Murano for a birthday lunch and was so pleased with the experience. The place is reminiscent of an old school, New York Italian restaurant and they clearly take pride in what they do. They went out of their way to make the meal special. Everyone was attentive and friendly and the food was excellent. At the end, half a dozen staff members sang "Happy Birthday" and brought over a complimentary dessert selection. They took excellent care of us and made it very memorable for her. Try the lobster bisque - it's awesome. We'll definitely be back!

I love Italian food and I love American food. Murano seems to have confused the best of both.

Murano is quite clearly a business mans fancy lunch, a place were corporate high level gossip can be exchanged while the executives get thoroughly lubricated. Indeed Murano is not open on the weekends.

Italian food has wonderful distinct courses with its antipasti, pasta and secondi all with different tastes and textures. The antipasti is made to be eaten with bread. The pasta??s shape is made to enhance the flavors of the sauce; for example Penne will always be linked with vodka sauce and fettuccini with creamy Alfredo sauce. The secondi??s sometimes meat, sometimes fish are separate and distinct.

In American food, the courses are often combined, and the pasta or starch is served with the meat or fish, but they separate and usually un-sauced and easily identified.

But Murano serves Italian American food probably because American businessmen don??t have the luxury of time their European counterparts have.

Murano??s food has neither the grace of Italian food nor the straight forwardness of American food. Let me give you an example. I ordered fettuccini with salmon in vodka sauce. There was no Alfred available. I expected a filet of salmon with fettuccini on the side. Instead I got a mishmash of both; the filet of salmon was broken up and cooked with the pasta. The salmon was obviously the tasteless farm raised kind, and was made almost indistinct by the orange colored vodka sauce. I also ordered a cold mixed antipasti. Italian food has wonderful Capanata and Gardinera, but instead got olives and mushrooms straight out of a Costco giant jar.

A dinner of a salad, antipasti, two pastas and a shared dessert is approximately $ 100 and hardly worth it.

I found Murano on Citysearch and I'm glad I did as I've been back several times in the past year. Delicious Italian food served by a friendly waitstaff in a comfortable environment. What more can you ask for? Ah yes, a great location too. Highly Recommended!

My girlfriend and I were seated and were waiting 20 minutes at our table for our waiter to give us a menu or ask us if we needed anything. He had given us bread and water, so he clearly knew we were there and under his service. No such luck. Finally, we decided to walk out. As we were leaving the owner asked what was going on. We said that we had been waiting for 20 minutes and no one had come to our table to even give us a menu. He gave us a dismissive, far from genuine apology. Here's a tip to the owner...usually you should offer a disgruntled customer something free so that they stay, as well as a genuine apology. Instead, he could care less. This is interesting considering the place was not exactly bustling. DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE! This is the worst service I have ever had in New York City.

Very good, standard Italian fare. I had a very good linguine with white clam sauce. My sister was very happy with her angel hair pasta with roasted tomatos and garlic. The service is excellent - friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is very spacious for New York; you won't be sitting in your neighbor's lap. The prices are not exactly cheap, but they are reasonable. The menu could use some innovation. Overall, it's not worth traveling for, but if you are in the neighborhood it's a great standby.

Always the same bartender - forget his name but he's very personable. Food is outrageously good and very under priced. Portions are generous. This lights could be dimmed a bit, though.

I always dine at Murano. The overall experience is excellent. They owner's son has a bald head and he is so SEXY. The prices are cheap compared to the quality, taste and service received there.
