Italian
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.

We had wonderful meals and with all small rooms it was so nice to be able to sit and have a conversation.
My only criticism is I have never had chicken Parmesan and not had a side of pasta

Service staff needs to wait till all diners are finished eating before removing plates from table! they were constantly reaching over those who were still eating to clear table. It made slower eaters rush to finish their meals which resulted in not enjoying meal!

This is a lovely restaurant. The bar is charming, and there's plenty of space between tables, and not too noisy, so great to have a relaxing meal with friends. Menu could be more imaginative. I would go again for sure.

The food and service were excellent. You should consider given pasta instead of salad as a side with the entrée or a choice. The parking is not good very tight and dark at night. We will comeback again.

Lovely atmosphere period.
Appetizers VERY small. My rosemary chicken was laying in 1/2 “ oil. My one friend had the halibut, way over cooked.
Our waiter had attitude in the beginning but started to come around.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!!!!
Oh forgot to mention VERY pricey for the quality and quantity of food.

Food is great and service is usually too. But they lost our food ticket and we did not get our food until 75 minutes after we ordered. They did provide a round of drinks and dessert as an apology.

I have always had an enjoyable experience dining at Il Fresco. I love the warm and cozy atmosphere of the historic farmhouse. I have never had a bad meal there, until recently. My three dining companions had no problems, but my appetizer was soggy calamari, with very little breading and a rubbery flavor.; I sent it back, something I rarely do. My entree was salmon---delicious and properly cooked---but the mixed vegetables were a mushy, overcooked selection and the Duchess potatoes were dry and burned black top and bottom. The potatoes were replaced with another serving only slightly less burned. I guess it was an off night. I would go back, based on all the many positive experiences I have had there over the years.
