Food and service were excellent. Wait staff was very attentive and helpful in making recommendations. Desserts are amazing :)
Customer service there is horrible. The blond waitress there who served us was extremely rude to us. We just completed our dinner and she came the next second to pick it up and asked nothing further about desserts or anything else during our entire dinner. When it was time for payment we decided not to give her much tip due to her behavior. And after giving her tip she looked and started laughing on our face which was very rude to us. I wonder how nobody taught her table manners in such a good restaurant. we had to go to another restaurant to celebrate eventually. It spoiled my important day. Not at all recommended if you are looking for good service.
Two small bowls of soup, one small artichoke/mushroom salad, two cappucchinos - $100! Moderate food, ludicrously overpriced. There are so many restaurants you can go to where you are better treated, the food is better, and you don't need to take out a second mortgage to eat a fast lunch.
The service was lovely, food was delicious, and ambiance was very nice. I would definitely visit again!
We visit NYC a couple of times a year and always are sure to dine here. The food is amazing, nice atmosphere. Dennis in the “Rose” room has been our waiter and his service is impeccable!
It was my 2nd time in Fresco by Scotto. Great food and good service even on a busy work day!
32nd Anniversary celebration with the most wonderful Woman I know. What better place for us to be for an Italian dinner than Frescos by Scotto. The Staff was superb, food was magnifico. This is dining at its finest. Superb....
What Italian restaurant in all of NYC does not offer Chicken Warm???? We were told by our server that the restaurant only makes it on weekends. So we New Yorkers who live here have to deal with tourists in order to enjoy Chicken Farm?????? Think something is wrong in the kitchen when a chef is that "clueless". Have been going to Fresco since it opened and the restaurant before Fresco. The food was okay but totally had to compromise what I was looking forward to eating all week long. Will likely be a while before we bother to go to this "tourist" place again. Think we will stick to our usual local Italian restaurants in the upper East Side where we can always get Chicken Parm and/or the chefs are accommodating.
We have been to Fresco by Scotto numerous times and always have a great dining experience. The food is wonderful, the staff is attentive and the service is excellent.
The service, ambiance, and food are good if a bit pricey. The noise level is very high. The restaurant would profit by the use of such sound absorbing materials as drapes and carpets.
Experiencing Fresco by Scotto was a dream come true! Dining in their restaurant has been on my list for years and they did not disappoint! From the moment we walked in and were greeted by Mrs. Scotto, to the incredibly attentive servers, the amazing food, beautiful ambience, it was
ALL an amazing dream fulfilled. We learned that our server was from Slovakia so when I shared that I have Czech heritage, he gifted us with a very special dessert. Such kindness and attention to details. And the BEST part was chatting with Mr. and Mrs. Scotto as we were leaving and getting my picture taken with Mrs. Scotto!! I bawled like a baby and she asked me why I was crying! I explained how much the experience at her restaurant had touched me deeply and how wonderful they treat their employees and teach them to serve their customers with love. It was a dream experience for me!
We loved this place. It is a great place for wholesome food and being starstruck!
Absolutely fabulous all around. Expensive but worth it. Service was phenomenal and the room has a classic elegance which I appreciate as so many NYC restaurants are striving to be too cool and modern in an antiseptic way.
Fresco is never a disappointment from the staff to the food everything was wonderful.
Food and wine selections are excellent. Preparation, presentation were impeccable and the food was superb. We loved it.
We had a cocktail beforehand at the small bar at the front of the restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed bantering with Tom the bartender.
This is a family run restaurant and the care and thoughtfulness of the family shows.
You will not be disappointed.
A perfect dinner!! Our fabulous waiter, Antonio, made it so enjoyable, and the food was just fantastic. So happy we chose this wonderful restaurant for our special evening in NYC!!
Food is excellent, service is attentive and friendly. We were celebrating or anniversary and they made it special!
Just ok. No engagement from the staff. Food was like a baked macaroni from the box. Nothing special for $200
I had a lunch with a group of 7 and we had a wonderful time. The table we sat in was a square table so everyone was able to face each other. Food came in quick and the food was delicious. I recommend the calamari, crab cake for appetizers. branzino for entree
Very busy when we arrived (7:30) but almost empty by 9:00 pm. Our server made great play of the fact that she was going to give us great service ... but she left and went tome (presumably) halfway through our meal. It didn't matter, but ... Very good but overpriced.
Great food but way too pricey.
One of my favorite spots in NYC for Italian! Only wish is that wine list had some more reasonably priced options - the mark up appears to be 3 to 4x retail, which can make for a very pricey meal.
The pasta was delicious and the wait staff was very attentive. An excellent place to have dinner for a special occasion.
We weren’t to Fresco for a farewell lunch. The food was outstanding and the service was great. The entire experience was great, everyone made us feel right at home.
This was mine and my husbands first time dining at this restaurant. It came highly recommended to us from the hotel we were staying at, but we were also familiar with the restaurant name due to their over-all public reputation. We were in NY celebrating our wedding anniversary and decided to try this restaurant, glad we did, everything was fantastic!
Been wanting to try this restaurant for a long time. One of the best dinners in a long time. Everything we had was excellent.
Very good attentive service.
This is a fantastic place for dinner. The Scotto family makes you feel so welcome. Great menu and wonderful service. Salad and pizza apps were yummy. Chicken parm and shrimp special were also delish. Polenta was out of this world! Save room for dessert. Bomboloni was beyond the beyond. Cannot wait to go back!
Delicious food. Good time with great friends. We will definitely be coming back again.
The food was delicious. Had to try the meatballs after so many wonderful reviews. They did not disappoint. Our party sat by an open window. The ambiance was terrific. Service was excellent. Definitely will go back.
Anthony and the staff welcome you in with some of the most delightful culinary experiences... Amazing food....
Good atmosphere for business meeting - will be returning
Superb service and awesome food
I have been wanting to have a meal at Fresco by Scotto for along time and I was happy to have the chance
to enjoy a good dinner with some of my good friends and family. The staff was very well trained and was on top of the service. The food was good but my meal was not very hot and had little taste. I would give them another chance, but so many other good restaurants.
had another great business lunch. Great location and food.
Excellent food and excellent service!
Outstanding in every respect. Was my first time for dinner, had been several times for lunch. Waiter was very knowledgeable. Was trying to decide between 2 pastas, the duck ragú with parpadelle and the chicken & veal rigatoni, our waiter said they were two of his favorites and told me I could get half portions of each! Great idea and both were amazing!
The pizza taste bad according to my daughter.
ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE PLACE !!!!
I really enjoyed my visit to Fresco by Scotto for lunch earlier this week. The prices are quite high, however the food was incredible and the service is outstanding. I also loved the very New York ambiance and feel in the restaurant. It is definitely a once in awhile treat yourself kind of place and I can't wait to return for another special occasion.
