I wouldn't hesitate to go back but not on a busy holidayl5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLobster Ravioli!Everything was delicious! Lobster Ravioli to die for. Lovely patio. Not inexpensive but worth the price.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyableMy wife and I had dinner with another couple, we had a blast.

The eggplant appetizer was so yummy and it reminded me of growing up and our big Italian dinners. The pasta dishes were definitely homemade and they literally melted in your mouth.

Food has always been excellent whenever we have eaten at Fresco.
