Diner Reviews
  • "It was super noisy Friday night. The place to be. The food was excellent and the staff and service was perfect."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "The waiter was nice but the hostess had attitude. For the price I would rather go to Flemings or Campagnes. I could have BBQ a better steak and my wife said I could cook the Chilean Seabass better."

  • "We went to Five this past Saturday on a long overdue date night. It had been almost a year since my husband and I had gone out without our children. I was hoping for a romantic evening. Instead, we walked into a very loud bar scene. When seated, we were seated very close to other couples whose conversations were so audible as we were desperately trying to hear each other's words. The service was great and the food was okay. However, I would not choose this restaurant again for a date. Sadly, a chain restaurant could have done better."

  • "Tried "Five" again for dinner. Banquette seating for two. Very close. Too close. Noise from the bar was overwhelming. Service was efficient. Lobster ravioli was bland. Anniversary night was disappointing. Wouldn't go there for dinner again. 3 strikes you're out!"

  • "We went to Five for a Girls Night Birthday dinner. Service was awesome, and the food was amazing! Everything from appetizers to dessert, and of course the wine!"

  • "5 is a great Italian restaurant that could have easily been in San Francisco along with the best. Service was good. Waiters were attentive without being nosy. Food presentation was superb, and pairing was well-thought-out. Nice wine. Good coffee. Great desserts. We will be back. Saw a little micro-managing, which should not be noticeable, but it did not take away from our enjoyment of the evening."

  • "The food was above average, but not great. The portions were very generous. I had the coconut shrimp appetizer which was excellent. My entree was veal scallopini, and it was just okay. The sauce was a bit watery and bland. The veal itself was tender. My wife had the Farfalle Monte Rosa and enjoyed it. Huge portion with enough left over to take home for a second meal. Bread was served beforehand with an olive tampenade. They also had a very good wine list, and 7 or 8 beers on tap. Service was outstanding; very polite and attentive. My only complaint was one bus staff member who reached right across my wife's face (as she was talking to me) to take away her bread plate, without so much as an 'excuse me'. It was very LOUD as well. Overall, a 7"

  • "This restaurant is a real gem in the north Fresno area. The service is friendly and quick. They care about the patrons and make sure your visit is enjoyable. A great place to eat and meet friends for an enjoyable evening."

  • "When ever I want to treat some one for a special occasion I always know 5 is the place and every one enjoys and say they would come back . Most have never been there before"
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "i travel to fresno form NJ and often visit Five. Well, Italian food is a staple in the east coast but i visit Five due to one of the few Italina cuisines in Fresno. It doe snot disappoint. I usually get the lobster ravioli and it is one of the best lobster ravioli dishes i have tasted. The atmosphere is good with a good wine selection. "

  • "The food is so great, i could eat there everyday and never get enough, if your in town visiting or live near Fresno, you have to try it!"
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "We, a family of five, reserved a table at 7 pm through Open Table. We came to the restaurant at 6.50 pm, and we were seated at the worst table in the restaurant, a table that is not even there on a daily basis. We asked for another table, because it was so loud in there, and everybody had to pass our table to get in and out of the different rooms. We were told, it would take about 10 minutes to seat us somewhere else, and we waited more than an hour. "

    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "My husband and I both had great meals. Was quite loud due to a large crowd in the bar, so would not recommend if you're wanting a quiet, romantic dinner. The Tuscan nachos are great!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Great place. We eat here a lot and have never been disappointed . The specials are always a treat!"

  • "The restaurant is very loud and has prevented us from going back there in the past."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "The food was fabulous as always. Our service was just okay. We had a wait for a steak knife for along time. We had to ask for water. We will return because the food is amazing all the time."

  • "Food & Service were good to very good. It however was extremely loud in the restaurant making it hard to enjoy the meal."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "As always the food was great, the service excellent, the only complaint we had was we were seated at a two top and could barely hear each other with the loud voices from the two top next to us."

  • "This place was awesome!!! Fantastic food, service & atmosphere!!! We are definitely coming back for more than Valentines Day!!!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Had Valentines dinner with my wife and had a mixed experience. The staff was excellent but the restaurant was set up where you were way to close to the other customers. They tried to cram as many people as possible for dinner. You could hear everything your neighbors were saying and there was zero privacy. The menu was limited but had many options which were very good. The food was very good and service was excellent. Maybe next time try not to cram so many people into the restaurant at one time."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Many visits to FIVE. Never been dissatisfied. Always great food and service. I look forward to more visits. Great place for business meetings. Private rooms have always made a great turnout."
    Dined on 1/13/2014
  • "My wife and i often frequent Five, and everything on the Menu is absolutely amazing. We especially enjoy the Filet, we never expected the best Filet in town to come from and Italian restaurant, mix that with amazing Italian food and Five is the best."
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "Food met or exceeded expectations (pasta/clams, bass/scallops, salmon/halibut, lamb chops). Some entrees could use more vegetables. Salads right-sized, nicely dressed. Wine list lacks rose choice. Menu covers a broad range of choices. Literally something for every diner, carnivore or not. It's noisy, with some places so spread out or exposed as to foil intimate conversation. All that said, this is an excellent restaurant that coped with an unexpectedly large post-Christmas crowd with aplomb. Staff friendly/efficient. Restaurant is beautifully appointed. Great part of Fresno dining-out scene."
    Dined on 12/26/2013
  • "The Tuscan nachos are 5+ stars. It is a dish unlike anything I have found in other restaurants. Also, the Eggplant Parmesan entree is superb!"

  • "We always celebrate our anniversary here. This place has a great staff and excellent food! Love the ambience too! This restaurant does everything right!"
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "Upscale dining, casual atmosphere. Nice menu, a little for everyones taste. Food well prepared, tasty, nice portion sizes. Nice wine list to complement menu. Service was very good, server knew menu well, answered our questions about some menu items and helped us decide on our order. Restaurant was quite busy and full, noise level such that it was difficult to talk across the table and be heard, and we were a table of two. Would try this restaurant again next time through Fresno, did enjoy the food. Would hope for a smaller, quieter crowd next visit."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "We reserved our table several days in advance, to celebrate our anniversary. Had heard many positive things about the restaurant over the years and were expecting a very nice evening to enjoy our anniversary. The restaurant is very noisy, we were seated near the kitchen and at a table not a booth, and no one, not even the hostess mentioned our anniversary. To top it off, our expensive celebration evening dinner was completed in less than one hour! I guess that is a tribute to good service, but not worth the price of the food--which was very good, but not anything more than I would expect for that price point/style of restaurant. Should have gone to Ruth Chris or Flemings (again) to celebrate anniversary."

  • "Great food, great service; the best high-end Italian place in town."
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "Never a bad experience, business, personal, a drink or two! good times!"
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "Five delivered good food and descent service. The hostess was nonexistent and we had to beg for a booth even though the place was half empty. Eventually the server allowed us to be seated in a booth. The food was good. I will return but only because Fresno has few options."
    Dined on 11/25/2013
  • "This place is so beautiful and their food is amazing. If you have never been here you are missing out."

  • "This family owned and operated high-end restaurant is always excellent. The Farfalle Monterossa is a favorite."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "Second time to this neighborhood gem. My first trip the food was outstanding and service was attentive. The Lamb Chops were unbelievibly prepared. Apps were spot on and came in the appropiate time. This second trip the service was outstranding, but the kitchen was backed up and the courses came slowly and poorly timed. The food suffered as a result. Uneven dishes and less then steller flavors. I would not hesitate to return for dinner again, but at these prices I would expect better from the kitchen."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "The food was excellent, as was the wine. The restaurant acoustics are not the greatest creating more noise, from the customers that I like. It was pretty noisy, but it was a Friday night & the restaurant was full. I would recommend it & the Rocca family, who own it have a long history of serving good Italian food!!"

  • "The staff was excellent. Friendly and attentive but not intrusive."
