This is a charming restaurant with delicious selections and fabulous service.
not good service. took forever to find a server (although nice when you found them), forgot to bring the dessert, waited too long for the check, grumpy greeter. Not going back. was embarrassed for my business associate who was apologizing profusely.
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.
Very nice dinner. This is a go to local Italian restaurant for special occasions.
Fabulous! Can’t wait to go back! This was our third time there. We have been life long residents of Rockland and only found out about this gem recently. Love the atmosphere, drinks are great and food is even better. The owner was friendly and spoke to us the first time we went and recognized us when we went back. Great place!
Ilfresco's never let's you down. The food is amazing the staff is attentive and friendly. A little pricey but you get what you pay for. Overall a wonderful experience
Was here on a rainy night. The restaurant was rocking busy but you would never know it as the food and service was better than ever. I’ve never been to a restaurant where everything comes out of the kitchen so hot. Had a great seat near fireplace. Martinis were Amazing. Drinks food service all better than ever. My favorite restaurant. Always consistent.
Service and food were very good. Would recommend to friends and family.
Absolutely fantastic meal !! Pasta was superb! Great martini menu! Can’t say enough good things ! Highly recommend :)
Always a wonderful place to visit. Had the monkfish and shrimp fra-Diavlo special just delicious. Also Angelo our waiter , just the best so friendly and attentive. Hit all the time!!!!
Never disappointed! Food was delicious perfectly presented perfectly prepared! Service excellent!
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!!
Food and service was excellent. Enjoyed every minute of our visit. Will return again.
It was perfect from start to finish! This was our first time dining here. I requested a table in the wine cellar and we were seated in this very special room complete with fireplace and only 4 tables. The service was pleasant and efficient. The food was absolutely delicious and excellent value for money spent. When I made the reservation I had mentioned that we were celebrating a big birthday. When we ordered dessert...Italian biscotti which came with a dish of amaretto to dunk the cookies in...they wrote Happy Birthday in chocolate on the dish. Very nice gesture. As mentioned it was our first time here but it definitely won’t be our last.
Another wonderful meal
Pasta was great, nice ambience and nice service
Il fresco never disappoints
Rocklanders and others, no need to take a trip into New York City when you have Il Fresco's. The beautiful old stone house, built in the early 1700's welcomes you to a fabulous dining experience. The food, prepared exquisitely with the freshest ingredients is a present for your palate. I've enjoyed this restaurant in the past and will be a returning customer for as long as the restaurant is there.
Always great. Love the wine room by the fireplace. Very romantic.
II Fresco is my absolute favorite restaurant!!! It is such a relaxing and romantic evening. Food and drinks are always great. I would recommend II Fresco to anyone!!!
Best Italian I have had in a long time and I didnt have to go to the city.
Very disappointed with our dining experience Valentines Day. Table was made for second floor not by request but all they said was available. Very cozy and food was very good, but I think they forget about you up there. A waiter took our drink order right away and then we had to hunt him down to order. I asked for cheese for my soup, no one came. Finally I asked a busboy to bring it as the soup was getting cold. No one came to ask how dinner was....by the way I was missing a fork.....no water refilled and at the end of the night we had to walk downstairs to find a waiter to pay our bill. We decided not to have coffee or dessert. My advice is not to make a reservation on the second floor as they will forget about you up there. I think these waiters need to get a little more polished.
Food was good. Service was very good.
Excellent food and amazing martini list of course
I have frequented this restaurant over the years. Always had a good meal. But last week I ordered one of the specials of the night and was very disappointed. Tortellini with chicken sausage it came with 4 little tortellini and reg chopped up chicken not chicken sausage swimming in tomato sauce. My friend ordered a pasta dish which also came out with way too much sauce. I can’t say I won’t go back but when I do I’ll ask exactly what I’m getting and say easy on the sauce 😱
Always a treat to go to IlFresco...never disappoints!
Food as always delicious. My only complaint is that without a reservation it is almost impossible to get a table before 9. Great food friendly staff.
This is probably one of the best restaurants I've ever dined at and I have nothing but good things to say. The staff is extremely friendly, and the ambiance of the restaurant just puts you in a good mood. The food is phenomenal and consistent. I've been getting the same dish each time I go, and each time I am blow away by how delicious it is. You can always count on this place for a great meal. And don't forget to save room for desert. Their gelato is to die for.
Lovely place to go for an evening out or celebration.
Good food, service and cocktails.
I go way back with the family that owns this place to years ago when they were in Palisades Park. The warm bread to start is perfection. Had a reasonable bottle of wine with dinner. Started with a shared order of eggplant rolatini. I had the rigatoni bolognese and my wife had shrimp and calamari. In between courses we both had a small salad. Food is freshly prepared and always arrives hot. Service is professional and attentive. Portion sizes are substantial. One of our favorite places to dine.
This was our third time in the last 3 years dining here on NYE and everything was excellent as usual. But do not just come here for holidays or special occasions! The food is delicious and the service is friendly & attentive. They have outside seating when the weather is warmer but the inside is very cozy and comfortable. Very enjoyable.
Excellent as always. Great service. Wonderful food. Nice atmosphere.
Always a great experience. I've never had a bad meal here. Everything is excellent.
frank ( the owner) personally served us .. our go to for quality meals.. better veal chop than "patsy" the nyc restaurant .. no hype .. better than the former zaviers
Great place, went here on a quick whim and was very pleased.
We frequent Il Fresco, usually dining three to four times a month. We love the food but we find the owners, hostesses and wait staff cold and unfriendly most of the time. Regulars expect to be welcomed back but it's as if they don't recognize us. Friends who frequent this restaurant have also experienced this same disappointing service.
Haven't been here for a long time and forgotten how good it is. Food was excellent although the service was a bit slow on a busy night but nothing to worry about.
Il Fresco has charm and warmth with small cozy areas. They have unique creative cocktails and the food choices range from delicious specials to
Old favorites done to perfection.
Great food! Perfect for a family dinner or date night
Always great.From the food to the service to the treatment by the proprietors
Excellent service and atmosphere. Food was delicious. Did not care for the rice balls.
My martini was fabulous and quite large.
The Absolute best in Italian cuisine. No better.
