Al Fresco Restaurant lets you feast on a bountiful array of Italian specialties. The outstanding menu, featuring pasta, chicken, veal and seafood, highlights a spectrum of lavish Italian specialties that are sure to please discriminating palates. Al Fresco Restaurant was planned with the summer in mind. An outdoor patio with a warm breeze and cold drinks are a perfect combination.

First time was for a pre-concert dinner. Service, cuisine, atmosphere were excellent. Long drive from Chesapeake, but worth it.

We have been to Al Fresco at least 50 times. The food and service are always excellent. Frequently, our server is Bailey. Bailey knows the menu and remembers us when we return - including drink orders. Al Fresco is a true gem.

Al Fresco is my new favorite restaurant. We dined there by mistake one day while looking for another restaurant that had been recommended. We were so lucky to stumble upon this wonderful dining experience. The food is absolutely incredible. The service is friendly and professional. I can't wait to revisit this place and have another great meal.

Went with my family for dinner. We felt like we were being rushed the whole time. We couldn’t sit back and enjoy our dinner and time together. The owners kids were running around the restaurant. Food was definitely not worth the high prices. Who installs smelly carpet on a restaurant and charge $30 a plate?

The dinner was a family treat so we had three little ones with us. We were served appetizers and salads right away. Our main dishes took a while to arrive due to the waitress not putting in our main orders but because we had the appetizers and bread/salad we were able to keep the little ones happy. Overall great experience. Restaurant treated us to dessert for the long wait for our main course.

We weren’t acknowledge upon arrival, sat ourselves and weren’t provided menus until asked, food was lovely but Hair in the water, waitress said no one worked there with that color hair and we saw another waitress walk by with that color (whether it was hers or not he waitress lied) I’ve had two other wonderful experiences, this one not so much
