I always stop here when I’m in NY. The food is great, service is excellent . They don’t rush you thru dinner. Even when tables are full, noise level is very manageable. Will be back!
Quite a little gem in midtown. The linguine with shrimp fra diavolo was perfectly cooked and perfectly spicy. Delicious. The pappardelle with Sunday sauce was also excellent. Maybe a tiny bit rushed and wine by the glass a bit pricey but will definitely go back.
Unbelievable food! Service was awesome!
Your Sommelier is highly knowledgeable...…..great meal. Will definitely return
The atmosphere, food, and service are all fabulous. If I lived close by, I would eat here as often as possible.
Overpriced menu. Wine vastly overpriced.
Consistent excellence. The Scotto’s presence on-site makes a difference with the details.
My husband claims “best bolognese”!!!
Fresco by Scotto has been a favorite of ours since it opened, 25 years ago. This wonderful family restaurant was the perfect place to meet (for the very first time) the parents of our daughter's fiance, who live in Los Angeles, CA. My wife said that the ravioli special was delicious. Our guests ordered from the daily menu based on my recommendations from past meals. We were all delighted with our choices. Fresco by Scotto's food is delicious and plentiful. The Old World service is graceful and dignified. On our way out we lingered to browse the many photos of so many prominent New Yorkers (and other citizens of the world in the public eye) who also enjoy dining in Fresco by Scotto. The restaurant is located at 52nd Street off Madison Avenue, just a few blocks away from such lovely sites as St. Patrick's Cathedral and Rockefeller Center. After a perfect meal, our guests enjoyed walking over to see the holiday tree lit up with thousands of colorful lights. Fresco by Scotto was a wonderful venue to begin our new extended family relationship!
The most gracious and hospitable family.... best Italian food in NYC!!!!!
I hope to visit you the next year!! Thank you for all you kind...
It was a wonderful evening! Ruben our waiter was gracious and accommodating! Loved everything about our meal! Tuna appetizer, Cavatelli with sausage, Pappardelle with duck all were amazing!
terrible bartendar, worst martini ever served in a goblet!
My wife and I went to dinner on Tuesday December 4. It was the most positive experience. The food was superb. The best service ( all service staff were very attentive to our needs). I would recommend Scotto’s to anyone that can appreciate great foo and service staff
Perfect as always.
Great service and food!
This was our nice dinner during our girls trip to New York and it was perfect. Loved everything we got!
We actually loved it so much, we ate here twice during our NYC girls’ trip. The food was delicious and the service was unmatched. We were lucky enough to have the same server from Spain and handsome water boy on both nights. They catered to everyone in our group like (Southern) royalty - from my 7 year old daughter to my 80 year old grandmother. We can’t wait for From My Window to come out from the future server turned author and hope to one day be as satisfyingly hydrated again from our model water boy. We will definitely visit Fresco by Scotto on future NYC visits!
The food was average at best. Service was iffy.
Felt pressured , pricey for pasta
Nothing was bad but was not fabulous either
Rigatoni with veal and chicken had meats shredded??? Great way for restaurant to stretch the food , we ordered two apps they appeared immediately? Pre-made??
Desserts were very fresh
The food was very good and very expensive. However we were continually rushed by the waitress and staff even after explaining we were not in a rush. We would not return for a special occasion or on a weekend.
Very disappointed our dining experience . Our reservation was for 9:15 pm. We were quickly seated . We ordered a cocktail. Placed our order and kept the wine list as we were going to order a bottle of wine to go with our dinner once our waiter returned ..we didn’t have the opportunity... our meal quickly arrived , we were not given a chance to order wine, the bus boy asked twice if we we were finished with our meals.. we clearly were not. As soon as our plates were removed from the table the waiter asked if we wanted our bill.... by now the mood for wine was gone. We paid the bill and were outside the restaurant just minutes past 10pm!
We felt so rushed and did not enjoy our evening at all
We visited on a Friday night in Dec, so it was packed, but the servers were very attentive and the food was delicious!
No complaints on food, ambiance etc. Fourth or fifth visit to Fresco. Coat check could not find my wife's new beige coat. Woman was not friendly and said we only checked one coat. She insisted that we were mistaken. After looking at our table and around the restaurant, I found it on the floor of the coat room. She then ignored us and never apologized. Maybe they should find a person to interact with their customers that is not so rude. May be our last visit.
great for any of the above..great for any of the above....great for any of the above......great for any of the above
We had awesome service, and the food was outstanding! We will certainly eat at Fresco’s again the next time we are in New York
We had a wonderful meal at this terrific restaurant. Loved meeting Rosanna Scottos mom and brother! Warm, wonderful family and delicious food!!
The atmosphere, food and service were terrific. It's a very pricey restaurant and was very disappointed that they charge you for breadsticks, flat bread and bean spread. They do not put bread on the table. They also charge for a few biscotti with coffee even after we ordered two desserts. This could be a deal breaker in going back again.
Perfect for a date, but lots of business dinners taking place in there as well. The food was amazing, and service was impeccable from beginning to end.
Wife and I traveled from Chicago to have our anniversary dinner here.
No fuss! Just great food and atmosphere plus terrific wine list.
This was our 4th visit over 6 years, and they came through once again. They did a very nice and flexible job subbing out a few items and reducing the spicy heat of the shrimp dish to perfection. The spaghetti and meatballs are always delicious, and plenty enough for two. We also tried the special crab raviolis which were super fresh and delicious with tender crab. The only thing that could have been better, was the cut of meat on my veal chop was not the greatest with a lot of fat. It was cooked well, and tender, but more fat than usual. Prices were on par with most high end NYC restaurants ($$), but a good amount of food. The owner greeted us as usual, the sommelier went above and beyond with two tastesrs, and our waiter was very attentive. The ambiance is perfect for special occasions like anniversaries or date night.
We have eaten at Fresco by Scotto several times. This time we were disappointed in the soup special. The $15 soup was dish-watery and not worth $15. There were not a sufficient choice of fish dishes. The bread should be toasted and the butter should not be hard. On the positive side, the linguini and shrimp was very good. The wait staff was very attentive.
Family trip to NYC
Excellent experience. Ciprian was very focused on our party and helpful with wine selection. This was a terrific evening with our family. Highly recommend.
This was our first time at Fresco's and it did not disappoint at all. From reading the reviews about the staff and the food lived up to the hype. My wife and I enjoyed our apps, dinner, dessert and drinks. We'll definitely be back again.
Terrific family gathering. The Scotto Family treated us so well... courteous, cheerful and appreciative of our patronage. Thanks for a lovely evening!
Everything about the evening was wonderful!! I know we will be back in the future.
Great service, warm atmosphere, and delicious food.
