Located along the Le Boulevard portion of the property, Martorano’s features expansive seating areas, including patio dining, and a large elaborate central bar. Reminiscent of Martorano’s original location in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the sleek black and white décor is the perfect blend of modern with slight touches of the classics, including black and white tiled floor.

Martorano, known as the “Godfather of Italian American Cooking,” started his career as a D.J. and created the first restaurants with D.J. booths in the kitchen. He now blazes a new trail again; this time expanding his brand with his second Las Vegas location and first on the famed Strip. The Paris Las Vegas location is sure to be a celebrity favorite like its Rio sister, which has welcomed notables from the music and sports worlds and big and small screens.

Martorano’s Paris Las Vegas is open for dinner Sunday-Thursday 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday 5 p.m. to 12 a.m. For information or to make reservations, please call 702-946-4656.
