Café Martorano to Honor National Lasagna Day with Homemade Special July 28-29

To celebrate National Lasagna Day on July 29, Café Martorano is cooking up a special homemade lasagna dish starting Thursday, July 28 and continuing throughout the weekend. This limited time special will incorporate the signature bold American-style Italian flavors that earned Steve Martorano the nickname “godfather of local Italian restaurants” by the Las Vegas Weekly.

For $24, guests will be treated to an off-the-menu special taste of cook Martorano’s lasagna while experiencing the unique blend of exceptional food, music and film that leaves diners both impressed and satisfied.

Martorano had a modest start as young kid in South Philly with a sandwich delivery service operated out of a neighborhood basement. It ultimately grew into an award winning restaurant, which he moved to Fort Lauderdale in the early ‘90s. There, he developed his signature “Martorano flavor” and has since become one of the hottest fixtures on the South Florida culinary and club scene.

The 150 seat, 7,000 square-foot restaurant inside the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino features white walls, black granite, stainless steel and evocative lighting with wide screen plasma televisions surrounding the room playing scenes from gem mob movies. Located in the Rio’s Masquerade Village, Café Martorano Las Vegas is more than twice the size of his Florida venue, but its mood, groove and attitude are strictly Martorano and sure to be smokin’ hot.

Café Martorano Las Vegas at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino is open for dinner Sunday through Thursday from 5:30pm to 10pm, and Friday and Saturday from 5:30pm to 10:30pm. For more information or reservations, call 702-777-7747.
