Il Fresco Ratings and Reviews
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!!
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.
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.
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.
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 😱
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.
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.
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.
LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!!!!
It just keeps getting better and better each time we come here. Food is superb, drinks are solid & the waiters and waitresses are very attentive and friendly. Need to acknowledge waiter, John Carlo. He was SUPER!!!! Very attentive, patient & helpful. A GENTLEMEN!!
We had a 530pm reservation , the restaurant had a few people already seated. After being brought to our table we were reminded by the hostess ie: the great cocktails available. There was another couple already enjoying the appetizers. We waited for our server, we waited, no one came to take our drink order. We were not in any hurry but very slow service. After seeing the servers and others in blue shirts talking in another room my husband had to get up, go in the other room if he should order a cocktail from the bar. Another server “ not ours”. Promptly came and took our order. Eventually, our server came to take our order. Again, we wanted to order another cocktail and again the servers were chatting paying no attention. Food was good, service poor, no apology, and again we had to ask for the specifically check. They could have made an allowance on the check for cocktail or dessert for the poor service. No we did not ask to see the mgr. At that point we just wanted to leave. Expensive menu high pricesd drinks which we knew but poor service ruined our special dinner out. Tough to recommend again, we were here before but be quite awhile to come back. Should have called restaurant directly for better reservation as well, maybe would have had better t@ble and server.
