It is great to have a local
It is great to have a local restaurant that is consistently good.
If you like spicy, the fire shrimp and spicy sea food pasta is your dish.
Great flavors.On a nice night you can enjoy the water view as you eat outside.
The owner-chef is extremely accomodating and makes it a point to come by your table
during the meal.We will continue to make this our go to spot.

One of the better restaurants
One of the better restaurants in Ventura County and it's next to the Marina so you can enjoy a window view of the boats while eating. I liked very much my entrée of chicken parmagiana and my wife enjoyed her meatball and sausage entrée. We ended up taking some home because the portions are large. Very good cocktails. The service was fine, and we enjoyed our third visit here for dinner.

Excellent Mediterranean flavors
I have had salmon, ravioli and salads. The flavor of my dishes have been fabulous every time. What I had a serious plroblem with was the size of the portions. When I got my salad it seemed to be brought for a pot luck party.

Great menu variety of Mediterranean
Great menu variety of Mediterranean items, but missed the boat on some. Active owner involvement.

A wide variety of food
The menu is broad enough to make it diverse but compact enough that it doesn't take all evening to peruse the pages. The location is charming and you're almost certain to get a nice view from any table on the lower floor.

Great restaurant with marina view
Had a fantastic lasagna and my wife had a seafood pasta. Both were excellent. They also have the best fried calimari that I've ever eaten. Very unique.

This is such a lovely place, open a year and looks brand new. It is on the Oxnard channel with indoor and outdoor seating. We enjoyed the live music. The bread was fresh and hot. The seafood pasta dish was excellent and enough for leftovers. I had a shrimp dish in an amazing sauce. I saw someone eating a spaghetti dish that also looked yummy. It's a little far from home but if I'm in Oxnard again, I wouldn't hesitate to return.

Food was well prepared, but
Food was well prepared, but not as tasty as the last time we had dined. Service was not as it had been the last couple of times we had been here, but I believe the wait staff was more concerned with a wedding party (bridal/bachelor party) that was going to be taking over most of the restaurant's dining area. Seating was limited, but we were still able to sit away from the bar and get a booth.
Still a strong menu and many varieties of food were available. Would still return, but might check if a big party was going to be there prior to making the reservation.

An amazing find in West Oxnard
Fresco II on the Marina is a surprising find for the Oxnard plane. Located near a marina in the Mandalay Bay, part of the restaurant overlooks the water providing a lovely scenic view. The decor is upscale for Oxnard but perfectly suited for the area in which the restaurant is located. Service is great and staff friendly and attentive. The Mediterranean food is among the best I have ever eaten. I've tried the gyros and gourmet zucchini pizza but would recommend anything on the menu.

We were passing through the area on vacation and wanted a nice lunch for our 3-generation family. Open Table provided numerous choices, but Fresco II sounded exactly like what we were looking for. We enjoyed a warm welcome and attentive, non-intrusive service. The menu has excellent variety, suiting everyone from a vegetarian, to a meat lover, to a 10-year-old. Ravioli with a giant meatball, a gorgeous main-course salad with premium produce, and delicious seafood pleased the clan. The restaurant was decked out for Halloween with creative decorations--yet not too scary for kids. If we were lucky enough to live in CA, we would enjoy Fresco II on a regular basis.

Two couples celebrating my wife's birthday. Nice booth with view of the marina. All the food was delicious - lobster ravioli, Greek lamb chops, shish kebab and shrimp. Attentive waiter and great service.
