Always great food!
We've been to this restaurant time and time again and we're never disappointed. We brought our 4 month old with us and they were very accommodating. The food here is excellent.

Always a pleasure
We had another very good experience at Al Fresco. We enjoyed our meals and we had very good service. It is always a pleasure to go to Al Fresco as you can always count on it being a satisfying visit.

this is a wonderful place tucked away in a shopping center on the end.. They have great food and are willing to accommodate any dietary requests ! The proprietor was there and was chatting with folks which shows a true passion for customer service . A Newport News Va must go to !!!

I've been to Al Fresco's several times, and each time has been a pleasure. The food and ambiance is always great! I only wish that they still served a merlot called Salmon Harbor (or was in Salmon Bay?) - but it may no longer be in distribution. BTW - I've been living in SC for over 20 years, but when I come home to Newport News, Al Fresco's is where I want to eat.

Good food, Nice Atmosphere
My boyfriend and I enjoyed dining at Al Fresco. He had a chicken dish and I had a dish with shrimp and scallops in a light cream sauce. Both dishes were prepared nicely. Our waiter was very kind and gave us great service. We will definitely go back. It's a good date night restaurant.

Great food and service
Everything here is delicious. The eggplant parm appetizer was so good, next time I'm ordering it for the main course. The salad and bread were fresh and plentiful. I had rigatoni w/asparagus & shrimp in pink vodka sauce; creamy, but not at all greasy like at some other places. The lemon ice in the frozen lemon for dessert was outstanding and the perfect ending to the meal.

Almost regular spot
Slightly moderate prices keep this good restaurant from being a more regular choice.

My wife and I wanted to celebrate our 33 year anniversay by treating ourselves to a special dinner. We considered going to Williamsburg but decided to stay closer to home and skip the 30 minute drive. We made the right decision. We typically visit Al Fresco for special occassions. We both ordered the specials of the day. Everthing, including a bottle of Italian wine, was very good. Hopefully we have many more special occassions to celebrate.

Enjoyed My Lunch
Food was very good with large portions, waiter was exceptional. Some of the tables were a little close together to suit me and the carpet could use an update but overall I very much enjoyed my meal. I have and will continue to recommend Al Fresco and I will return.

Excellent food and service!
Excellent food and service! The dining room was full and we were still given personal service. This is one of our favorite restaurants.

The food was great. Anything with red sauce (marinara) is very good. We will be going back AGAIN.

Best Italian in Newport News
Nevermind that this restaurant in tucked into the corner of a shopping plaza, once you smell the aroma and taste the food-you will completely forget where you are! The owners aren't spending their money on fancy furnishings, but the fresh, authentic dishes make up for it ten-fold. The establishment is clean and the servers aim to please. The pinot noir recommended by the server was a great pick!

Worth the trip
Great Fettucini Alfredo, extensive wine list, and the service is really nice. It's a fairly open seating area, but even with that set up it is not a loud environment. Will definitely go back

feels like Little Italy
Al Fresco Italian Restaurant was one of my choices on a recent trip to Hampton VA, and on entering I felt like I was in a big city's Little Italy. I had in mind the Vitello Verbena (veal scallopini with proscuitto, capers and asparagus) so I asked for recommendations for a lighter appetizer, and my server recommended the Melanzane Rollatini (sliced eggplant stuffed with ricotta topped with tomato sauce). The appetizer was a good choice and my entree was excellent. Our reservation was for a Thursday night at 8:30pm and my colleague and I ended up talking business until after 10:15pm, well after all the diners left, but our server was very gracious. Definitely worth a visit, and they take reservations on OpenTable, which is always a plus!
