Andrew made our night! So kind and attentive! The Arancini was delicious and I was so excited they had Menabrea!
I’m glad we got to go there before it shut down due the current situation. I hope they be back soon!
A reservation is nice since there is much walk-in traffic from the Hilton across the street.
Service is professional - food is good.
Prices are high for general Italian food, but it is Honolulu and it's located in a high-rent district so it's understandable.
Wine prices are very high - one might want to consider beer.
It's on the second level and from what I can tell there is no elevator so for those who have ambulatory issues you might want to consider another site.
We were on the second level next to an open window and the view and the evening breeze were pleasant.
Great meal and service...our group of four had a nice evening!
We celebrated our staycation with a fantastic dinner. We were seated by the window. Our server was attentive to our needs. The food was cooked to perfection.
Wife’s birthday was very nice at Fresco’s.
This is not Italian food!!!! There is no flavour in the food and everything tastes bland. Save your money and do not go here!
Server was Dakota, very polite, attentive and efficient.
We went a second night because we enjoyed our meal so much the first night. Had the same entree, it was fabulous. We had the Rigatoni Con Salsiccia All' Arrabbiata.
The restaurant was full on Saturday night. The food, service and ambience was outstanding. It certainly was old school Italian food, reflecting modern ingredients and interpretations.
For such a highly promoted restaurant located right across from the Hilton Hawaiian Village the food here was bland and disappointing.
We had a reservation but still had to wait 15 mins for a table. Server kept passing by our table making but never stopped to greet us. We waited about ten mins before she decided to come to the table to greet us. She was very awkward and unfriendly. Food was bland and disappointing. Super cute place but that's about all it has going for it.
the wait was long even though we made reservations.
Food came in small portions, was expensive, and overcooked but the service was excellent and the waitress gave us a significant discount.
Food was terrible. Lobster poorly cooked. On the menu, ribeye described as coming on a sizzling platter with Asian dressing. Waitress said it does not come on a sizzling platter nor does it come with Asian dressing. Creme brûlée came out chilled.
Never eating here again.
Perfect view of sunset while enjoying a delicious dinner.
Taste of Hawaii menu was delicious.
FRESCO never disappoints! Delicious pomodoro sauce , fresh bread, delicious caprese salad. Always a winner!
Really pretty restaurant for lunch and dinner! Food is fantastic!
The most friendly, accommodating and welcoming staff.
We've been going there for years and take our visitors there often.
We'll be back!
This restaurant is one of our "go to" restaurants both for out of town visitors and for just the two of us for a frequent Saturday night treat. We often opt for the Sunset Special offerings when it is just the two of us and we're never disappointed in the choice, quality or the quantity of the delicious food. When we decide to splurge on ourselves or want to entertain friends in a lovely open air restaurants, there are plenty of mouth watering options on the regular and prix fixe menus. Service is always professional, attentive and friendly. Although all of the servers provide exceptional service, we ask for one of Kele's tables, if he is available to make the evening even more special.
We love this place. Best pasta on the Island!
Dakota our server was excellent and did a great job trying to work with the chef to accommodate our onion allergy. Unfortunately the chef was unable to create any sauce or modify any recipe. We ended up with penne pasta, 3 mushrooms, 3 shrimp and a drizzle of olive oil for $32. I expect that from Olive Garden but not a specialty Italian restaurant in Oahu.
Our server Kele was very nice and helpful. The food was very good and the atmosphere was nice.
Wonderful Italian food
Rigatoni Salsicca was tasty with its spicy flavor.
Found this Italian restaurant on Open Table and choose it because it was within walking distance from the hotel we stayed in while on Waikiki beach and thought the outdoor dining was overlooking the ocean and inside a Hilton hotel. Instead the outdoor dining overlooked nothing and was not in the hotel at all.
Overall. dining experience was good, as the staff was extremely kind and the food was pretty good.
Restaurant could use an update. It was so plain and didn’t look or feel like an Italian restaurant.
Our waiter was excellent. Portion sizes were not large but the food was very good.
We love this restaurant! We’ll be back!!
Amazing service from everyone. Warm welcome. Amazing quality food that has been consistent quality and taste for over 12 years. Our favorite restaurant on Oahu. Great romantic experience.
Wonderful food. Hard to find.
My friends and I just love this restaurant. The food is always wonderful. And, we just love that it is in the Hilton Hawaiian Village with all the shops to visit afterwards to walk off all of those yummy calories. This is a must try whether visiting or a local. Michael has served us the last 2 times we were there. He's quite attentive and always has great suggestions. Highly recommend Fresco's!
Michael and Tuan took excellent care of my wife and I. The entire dining experience was awesome. The best tropical birthday meal, ever!
Resort restaurant. Food is OK, wine selection terrible. Deserts best avoided. Best point was that they had grappa!
Malik was the very best waiter we had in two weeks. Keep up the good work Malik♥️
Always great food and service. Very respectful of food allergies.
Very nice New Year’s Eve dinner with an accommodating and informed waiter. The food was delicious. We enjoyed ourselves!
Don’t go there! waste of money, first and last at Fresco! Hope they close soon!!!!
