Amazing food and service. The garlic shrimp is by far the best in the 757. While the restaurant is small this allows for a personal experience and the staff does an amazing job in providing only the best in service. Truly a must do for anyone visiting in the area.

About the restaurant
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.

I was in town with a group for a conference, and all four of us loved this place! Though it's tucked into a strip mall, it has white tablecloth (literally) elegance without being too stuffy. The homemade pastas are terrific, and the garlic bread and salad to start are also both a notch above standard. Three in our party ordered glasses of wine, and it was a very generous pour. I'd highly recommend Al Fresco if you're looking for a nice Italian dinner in the Hampton Roads area.

We arrived at the Farmhouse early and enjoyed a bottle of Sparkling wine we had bought at the vineyard on the front porch. We had called earlier to ensure this was Ok. We were greeted by Alex Espinosa with a kind smile and a warm welcome. Alex continued to be a gracious host while we waited for dinner as well as throughout the meal. The atmosphere of the grounds and the building are perfect. The views are stunning. Then here comes the food. Course after course was beautifully prepared and matched with delicious wines from the Vineyard. A perfect night would be how I would describe the experience at the Farmhouse

What a treat of a place. We stumbled onto Croc's last year by accident, and liked it so much we've made it a go-to for our annual summertime family bash. Great food and drinks, wonderful service, all in a cute place you wouldn't think twice about from the outside - but be sure to come on in!

About the restaurant
Situated under a canopy of old growth trees on Lake Joyce, this natural gem serves seasonal fare from tidal Virginia. The menu reflects freshness with a distinct emphasis on showcasing the inherent colors and flavors of the ingredients. The cafe's bakery provides all its breads and deserts and is open for retail on the weekends. This fresh approach to food done in a natural and unpretentious setting has been a local favorite for twelve years. If you don't see your desired time slot available give us a call.
