Sorority sisters and their spouses gathering for a Homecoming reunion. This was our first time at this cafe. All liked the cafe and their menu choices.The wine was perfect with all of our menu choices, and our server was cordial and efficient. The level of noise did not interfere with all 8 of us conversing.

We always enjoy our evenings at Fresco. Very good value—food always good. Can be a bit noisy at busy times.

The most inappropriate staff there is. Noticed them using Google to look up the various guests and reading about them. Not even bothering to be discrete and leaving the browser open for all to see.

Food was superbly executed. Waiter seemed much less enthused when we didn’t order alcohol this evening. However everything is delicious and we will be back.

The food was great as always. Outside seating made for a pleasant, un-hurried evening with friends. They raved about the food and we enjoyed a great time over wonderful meals. The perfect place for a special occasion or romantic evening or just to meet friends.

I’m an official salmon snob having spent 35 years of my life in Alaska with fresh copper river reds and kings fresh out of the river that we caught ourselves. I was pleased when the waitress knew where the salmon came from and what kind it was. And it tastes fantastic! Whatever the chef did for the glaze and grill was absolutely mouth watering.

What an incredible establishment. I’ve traveled to many big cities and eaten at many fine establishments, but this one strands out ahead of the rest. Excellent service, the best food, and an unbeatable environment. Well done!

Overall, we were very impressed with food and the service. By far, it was the best meal that we have had in Bozeman. The spaghetti puttanesca was delicious, as was the spaghetti bolognese. I was disappointed with the pesto cavatappi because it was cream-based, which I find odd for pesto, particularly when cream was not listed in the description. Had it been straight up pesto, I think I would have really enjoyed. it. The flour chocolate torte was terrific. We look forward to visiting again when we are in Bozeman.

As a server I try to be very sensitive to servers, but ours wasn't very present. Food was delicious, wine was ok (my boyfriend's red wine was HOT), evening was still delightful.

A lovely location right next to a creek right in the center of Bozeman is the setting for this pleasant restaurant. The onion soup was excellent, if a little bit too salty. The other guests enjoyed the daily special (lamb shank and cannelloni) but my sockeye salmon was a bit overdone. The vegetables and sauces were tasty. The waiter was exceptionally accommodating and helpful and was a joy to have as a server. I would definitely go back, but be more selective about ordering.

We had heard of Cafe Fresco from friends who had dined there many times. Wejust didn't seem to be able to make it. But we did this time and loved every part of it - the food, the ambiance (we ate on the patio), the service. As far as we are concerned it is the best Italian restaurant in Bozeman. IT compares with other favorite Italian restaurants we have been to on our journey through the states.

As we have ever since Fresco was located on Seventh Ave., we enjoyed a wonderful meal and a couple of Peroni Beers. For this occasion we opted for the outdoor, creekside seating which added to the ambiance and kept the crowd noise to a minimum. When we have out-of-town guests we often bring them here because the food is excellent and the quality is consistently great. All of the menu options are really good and most of them are fantastic. Even something as basic as spaghetti and meatballs has a Fresco twist that makes them special. One of Bozeman's best restaurants. We've been regulars at Fresco for more than 25 years and keep coming back. A great "special occasion" spot.

The food was good. The service was absolutely terrible. The hostess did not say hi or even make eye contact until she was totally ready. Took drink orders for the party in front of us and in 15 minutes had not filled them. Took about 45 minutes to take our order. 2 different tables around us actually got up to track down wait staff asking for their food. Appetizer we ordered never came. It had taken so long I didnt push it. This was on a Monday night.

Not my first choice in Bozeman, staff is burned out. Not interested in helping navigate food allergies, can't be bothered. Had a reservation for 8:15 pm on Saturday night, and weren't seated until after 9. So dark I needed to use my phone flashlight to read menu. On the upside, the shrimp fettuccini was delicious.
