    Service was great. Food was very good. Loved all the extras such as flavored olive oil prepared table side with fresh hot bread, all the way to the limoncello at the end. Glimpse of the ocean - mostly resort pool views. Pizza was v good!

    The restaurant was half empty but we still waiting over a hour for our pasta meals. Neither my wife’s meal nor I could ear the dish. The Tortellini was undercooked and filling tasted raw very chewy. The seafood linguini when where there there were shells and and much of the seafood was missing. Also, my wife go sick later in the evening. We would not recommend anything other that the pizza.

    We went to dinner on 3/11 around 6:15pm. We had a great meal at Frescos. The stuffed chicken with Lentils was delicious and they even substituted asparagus for spinach. The pizza was good as well. The insulate that came with the mozzarella ball was with the money! The woman who greeted us at the door was very friendly and checked on us a couple of times. The young waiter was very good as well and had some good recommendations and was very attentive - sorry that I don’t remember his name. We sat on the edge of the restaurant and had a nice view of the ocean and the setting sun. Great experience!!

    Delicious Italian cuisine with friendly and personable service - all with a beautiful palm beach view. Breezy Aruba weather makes outdoor dining very pleasant. Paulo our waiter was very attentive and chef Raphael made a personal visit to our table to make sure everything met our expectations - the local made barrata salad was yummy and love the special touches here… flavored olive oil cart to go w the facaccia bread, my aperol spritz apertivo was so refreshing, and a complimentary limoncello after dinner was a nice touch!

    Fresco is an Italian restaurant wanna be. The meatball appetizer came with 3 very small meatballs that were dry. My husband ordered a pizza that was undercooked and covered with garlic which was not mentioned on the menu. I had an ossobucco pasta dish that had chunks of pork (not tender) and luke warm pasta. The service was great, the food not. I would not go back.

    Have been here twice really love the food it’s very fresh and very good. The Bruschetta is amazing as are the meatballs. Only issue is the service is horrible for dinner and breakfast. It takes forever to get drinks like forever. Other than that it’s a great place to eat dinner.

    Delicious, laid-back spot on Renaissance property. At night - very romantic. The chicken caesar salad was one of the best we’ve ever had. We also loved the ghetto veccio pizza and the red wine suggested by our waiter. Lovely dinner spot - would return.

    We went on Monday night which is 'all you can eat' pasta and pizza. They don't advertise that there are only 3 pizza choices. There were enough pasta options and everyone in my party was ok with the quality of the pasta. The pizza, on the other hand, was surprisingly bad. It was slightly undercooked but also just didn't taste good. I wouldn't recommend the Monday night meal but I can't speak to their regular menu.
