Did you know that today (July 29) is National Lasagna Day?
To celebrate the tasty occasion, Café Martorano inside the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino is cooking up a special homemade lasagna dish throughout the weekend. Available for just $24, the off-the-menu special will incorporate the signature bold American-style Italian flavors that earned Chef Steve Martorano the nickname “godfather of Italian restaurants” by the Las Vegas Weekly.
Chef Martorano had a modest start as young kid in South Philly with a sandwich delivery service that 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 Café Martorano inside the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino features white walls, black granite, stainless steel and evocative lighting with widescreen 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 Chef Martorano’s Florida venue, but its mood, groove and attitude are still strictly Martorano. A favorite with celebs, everyone from Matt Damon to “Jersey Shore” star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has eaten at the Las Vegas restaurant.
Café Martorano is open for dinner Sun.-Thurs. from 5:30 p.m.-10 p.m. and Fri.-Sat. from 5:30 p.m.-10:30 p.m. To make your reservation, call 702-777-7747, or for more information, click here.
