Our waitress (Erica) was terrific. The portions were large enough and the food was really good, but a little heavy on the salt.
We sat outside. Through no fault of the restaurant, the cars passing by (a few times), leaving Taco Bell, had loud radios and screaming kids while stopped at the traffic light right next to the restaurant. It took away from the ambiance a bit.
All in all a very pleasurable meal in spite of the few small things mentioned. Go! I don't think you will be disappointed.

Outdoor service is back! We so enjoyed our fish entrees, stuffed bronzini and grouper filet, cooked to perfection and served with vegetables and roasted potatoes. Despite it being a holiday, the service was gracious and I rushed. Perfect cure for the indoor pandemic blues!

We did ask for an outside table thinking the TENT and HEATERS were still in use. But that was not the case. We did sit outside and one of the staff did set up a local heater.

What did dis-appoint was the lack of a WARM, greeting with a SMILE. It was less than welcoming. I felt like we were a nuisance.

Our server, JD was great. He did make up for the lack of Customer Service 101 @ the check in.

We had an excellent lunch at Fresco. We ate outside which is a little noisy. We would highly recommend Fresco for lunch or dinner.

We have been here several times and return each time because of the quality of the food and the outstanding service. This recent trip did not disappoint.
Seating inside is adequately spaced to comply with current guidelines making it even quieter than usual.
Our server gave us time to decide on our dinner choices and spaced the service so that we weren't rushed between courses. Will definitely be returning.

Had crabmeat stuffed branzino. Would have preferred simply crab meat as the stuffing rather than crab imperial.

The food was very good.My wife and I split the egg plant Rollatini and the crab stuffed mushrooms for appetizers. I had the bone in ribeye with garlic butter on top ,mash potatoes and vegetables and my wife had the chicken Franchess over linguine with potatoe and vegetables.Everything was cooked and tasted excellent. The waitress was polite and not overbearing. This is the 3rd time we ate here and was very happy every time.

Reserved a table for Valentine's Day for 1 PM. It was before it really got busy but the reservation was on time, the service was as excellent as ever along with the food. You do pay for it but for special occasions and really want the quality of the food with it - it is worth it!

I made my reservation for 8:45 and it magically changed my reservation to 8:15. It didn’t even ask me if I wanted to change it. Clams had a lot of sand and broken shells in them.

We went for Valentine's Day Eve early dinner and thankfully , it was their standard menu. They did remove lobster bisque from the menu. My husband had the Cream of Maryland crab soup as a special. I had the escargot. It was a generous serving- but not in the shells or in the special serving dish. The many snails were in a great sauce and served with bread for dipping. We split a salad and Fred, our server, brought 2 different salad dressings to accommodate us. I had the Grouper special- mushrooms, artichoke hearts and sun-dried tomatoes in a white wine garlic sauce served with roasted potatoes. He had his go to dish- mussels fra diavolo over linguine which is not on the menu but they were happy to make for him. They brought us ice for our bottle of wine and served great Italian bread rolls with dinner. The room was not too full- 35 % capacity in NJ. The hostess was efficient. Fred is an excellent waiter. One drawback- we were seated in a corner with 2 sets of windows. Even after we closed the blinds, it was still very chilly. I ate with my coat over my shoulders. Not Fresco's fault that it was so frigid out, but the room was drafty especially since it was not crowded. Overall, a great meal, as usual.
