Charming old farmhouse restaurant, warm and friendly atmosphere. Terrific Martinis, large wine list and wonderful Italian food served by an attentive staff. Service is never rushed, dinner is enjoyed in rooms of varying sizes, so noise levels are minimized and intimate conversations can be had. Can't wait for warmer weather so I can go back and enjoy my dinner, Il Fresco, on their spacious patio.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a wonderful restaurantThis is a wonderful restaurant with delicious food, outstanding service and terrific ambience..

The food, service, and ambiance are always top notch!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe vibe was fantastic. AThe vibe was fantastic. A former farmhouse with tons of charm and great food...why did it take me so long to find this place?! Make sure to get the cannoli ice cream. I'm a dessert fiend and its among the best ice creams I've ever had. Fig/goat cheese/prosciutto crostini as an appetizer is good but small. Make sure to take the mint leaf out (too overpowering with it in but you still get the mint taste once removed). Chicken park is fantastic. Even my chicken parm snob boyfriend was impressed. Cheese tortellini with cream sauce and prosciutto & peas was tasty too. Great wine list by the glass. Delicious espresso after dinner. The waitstaff even let us take over the TV to watch the masters. Il Fresco is my new go to restaurant!!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe quality of the food andThe quality of the food and service is consistent from one visit to the next. The menu, coupled with the selection of specials, gives a wide variety to choose from. As good as any restaurant in Little Italy.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ate upstairs which wasWe ate upstairs which was the perfect cozy atmosphere for two couples aimed at catching up. There was a buzz but it was pleasant and did not interfere with conversation. The stracciatella soup was to die for as was the veal saltimbocca. Desert was decent but nothing outstanding. While the waiter fogot my soup order, one of the owners came up to bring it, appropriately apologetic. He was so nice and funny that any frustration was soon forgotten. Overall, a great experience - we will be back!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMalways great!Wondeful selection of italian food, prepared fabulously! Wonderful wait staff. Never disappoints.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGood time every timeThis was my 4th time going to Il Fresco. Every time I go I'm also impressed by the service and ambiance. Good for a group of 10 or an intimate dinner for 2. Very friendly staff, and great food. The best section of the restaurant is the room by the fire place in my opinion. I recently sat by the kitchen and the waiters going in and out of the curtain was sort of inconvenient next to our table. Other than that we had a great time with friends.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was fantastic. WeThe food was fantastic. We sat in the wine cellar which was small and intimate. There was a fireplace and only about 5 or 6 tables. The service was good for the most part. I would have liked my waiter to come over at least one more time before I finished my meal so I could order another bottle of wine, but I was better off not having it. An after dinner drink was perfect. I would highly recommend Il Fresco and I will certainly return sooner rather than later.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, especiallyExcellent food, especially pastas all Al dente.
Bread comes straight from the bread factory in Rockland.
Crab cakes are the best as an appetizer.
Apple tart for dessert with the biscotti gelato is outstanding.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were quickly seated. OurWe were quickly seated. Our table for two was in a nice and secluded area.
The food while not inexpensive was top quality and delicious. Everything was just right.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOld farmhouse with a cozyOld farmhouse with a cozy feel. History of farmhouse written on the menu with invitation to tour the historic rooms. Service excellent as was the food. My friend had salmon, which was served with whipped potatoes and a vegetable medley. I had breaded chicken breast stuffed with spinach and prosciutto and served in a mushroom and marsala sauce. Both were tasty and the portions were ample. Although we didn't drink, the martini list is impressive and creative. I've enjoyed wonderful 'tinis on prior visits. I look forward to my next meal at Il Fresco.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMDisappointed in the restaurantDisappointed in the restaurant week menu. Had a pasta dish that was good but under seasoned.
