Seven of us went to dinner on Monday evening and thoroughly enjoyed the food, the ambience and the service. Our guests from the East thought the food was excellent and the quantity much more than they usually received in NJ and PA restaurants. The wine list was lengthy but they were out of the two Italian wines we had initially selected. I will say the alternative was also excellent though slightly more expensive. All in all, an excellent restaurant and excellent service.

This was our third occasion
This was our third occasion and we had excellent food and service again. Music was also excellent although when I approached the singer to see if he could play/sing "Pretty Woman", he said he could and would but we never heard it. That would be the last time I will drop a $5 in his bucket!
All in all, a great restaurant and one which we will return to.

Beautiful birthday celebration
When you arrive you will note the comfortable and beautiful surroundings. The wait staff is terrific. They are well versed in the menu, personable and attentive. The food was well prepared and delicious. Because we were celebrating two birthdays they brought us the best tiramisu that I have tasted. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Walked over from the movie
Walked over from the movie theatre. Excellent way to do dinner and a movie! The food is always great, and I love the IPA they currently have on their beer list (I'm not much of a wine drinker). We often have Andrea waiting on us, and she always does such a nice job.

worth the travel
We were staying at Pala and wanted to see a movie. Went to small town of Bonsall...not much there but good little cinema and this restaurant was great. Good size portions and delicious desserts! Great service and reasonable prices.

We brought our 9-year-old
We brought our 9-year-old niece with us, and our waitress was really good with her. Food excellent, as always. Really enjoyed the live music, as well. I guess it's not often you hear Johnny Cash songs at an Italian restaurant, but it was fun!

Excellence in Dining
It was our first visit here and the food was very good. I had also been to the one in Carlsbad but the atmosphere here wins
hands down. It's off the HWY 76 going East for 7 miles from the North Santa Fe Road light. Make a left and then immediate right into a well hidden shopping center.

This was my second visit to Fresco in Bonsall, off the 76 going east from Oceanside. I highly recommend it. Food is very good.
Salad I had was ok but very little dressing, as was the first time. I had to ask for more. It's located in a small shopping center of Mediterraean buildings. Very nice. Try the veal regular size plate and request pasta instead of mashed potatoes on the chicken (pollo) parmeggiana and veal parmeggiana. Also I recommend the Lucatelli Romano grated cheese instead of parmesan, which has no flavor.
Make a reservation here. They should extend their hours after 10 pm.

Lovely Neighborhood Restaurant
We have tried the other Fresco restaurant in downtown Carlsbad and found this to be a smaller version with similar beautifully rendered frescos on the walls. The food was very good as was the service. We enjoyed our meals and look forward to trying something else on the menu on another occasion. Large menu with many choices. Also, several specials.

We have been drawn here for years and really enjoyed the live music last weekend. The vegetarian selection is limited but SO good. I love the mushroom ravioli! We tried the chocolate souffle for the first time. OMG - the best chocolate desert I've ever had!!
