Constructed in 1728 and beautifully restored, this quaint Hudson Valley farmhouse is family owned and operated. Located just 30 minutes from Manhattan and moments from Bergen County and Westchester, this historic Rockland County restaurant is home to freshly prepared Italian fare. The space boasts six intimate candlelit dining areas as well as serene seasonal outdoor dining. The Sage, Savory, Sassafras and Saffron Rooms are all unique in their own way. The antique stone Wine Cellar is perfect for a romantic dining experience near one of our fireplaces. Il Fresco's menu is all prepared fresh when ordered. The wine list features Italian and American selections carefully selected to reflect the wide range of flavors offered from its kitchen. The Sorrel Bar is a festive dining space where you can get a firsthand look at our bartenders preparing our 10 ounce martinis. The restaurant is multi leveled, so if there are issues with stairs please let us know in advance.

Private party facilities
This restored 1728 historic farmhouse, adorned with candles and warmed by antique fireplaces, is home to several quaint rooms serving freshly prepared Italian fare. These rooms can be used either separately or in unison to host your event from 12 to 110 guests. Our stone Wine Cellar is open during those cold Northeast winter months near one of our fireplaces. During the summer, our Meadowlace Terrace opens to allow our guests to enjoy the good life under the sun, the moon and the stars. Since our inception in March of 2001, we have prided ourselves in creating food that is fresh, always giving great care in the selection of ingredients used to prepare these items. We are available to cater your next special event, day or evening, intimate or large. My family and I welcome all those that wish to dine in what we consider our home.

IL Fresco is by far the finest Italian dining experience in the Rockland-North Bergen area. Excellent menu, terrific but reasonably priced wine list, cozy atmosphere and personable servers who go out of their way to ensure that their guests have a wonderful dining experience. Can’t say enough good things about this place.

the 10oz martini was really well done. i got pasta with scallops and prawns. the prawns were super rubbery and when the waiter finally checked in about my meal i asked him to redo the shrimp which he did but the next ones were less overcooked but still rubbery --you can't force thaw shrimp by running it under water. the scallops were perfect, the pasta was good. the bread is good and the venue is great. the waiter never checked back in again but the person who bussed my table noticed and told the waiter --good job support staff!! i wouldn't go back for food, drinks? sure because the venue is great.

Il Fresco is just fabulous.
The food is ALWAYS good - their specials are creative and flavorful. The service is fantastic! However on the weekends it can be a little slow going due to the kitchen being small - But who wants to rush on a Friday or Saturday night! Sit back, order a drink, relax and enjoy!

First time at Il Fresco, which is in a pre-revolutionary war building. It was a chill Spring evening and our table was in a room with a very inviting fire to keep us warm. The service was first class as was the meal. We were very impressed and will be certain to come back.

We went to Il Fresco's for our monthly friend's dinner. We really enjoyed our experience and will absolutely dine here again. We were greeted by Raffaella and Amanda and were immediately seated at a cozy table upstairs. Our waiter, Eddie, was friendly and knowledgable. He explained the menu to us and we ordered several appetizers from their specials. The drinks were delicious and prepared by Frankie behind the bar. We had to ask who made the drinks because they were that good. We each ended up with different Martinis. Our meals were excellent and we ended up eating everything from our plates. Again, we had to ask who created such delicious dishes (Ranging from Country style Chicken to Penne amatriciana). Chef Andrew did a great job! The ambiance was cozy and comfortable. We were able to dine for several hours and just enjoyed the entire experience. We can't wait to dine here again.

Valentine’s Day was the second time my fiancé and I went there. The first time was for our anniversary back in December. Knew about it for years but had never gone before but that’s why we went two times that close together. It was that amazing and did not disappoint!! Absolutely loved it both times!!
