My boyfriend and I went there for my birthday. Our server, Adalita was friendly and professional. I had the baked Salmon which was amazing! My bf had a seafood with pasta dish that was equally amazing. I can't wait to go back!

Our go to restaurant for a quality night out. Service is excellent. As a BYOB we each enjoyed our alcoholic beverage of our own choosing. Shared appetizers of zucchini strings and calamari. The group had entrees of Grouper, Chicken, Lobster ravioli and rib eye steak so a wide variety was chosen and we each had leftovers.

Overall we enjoyed our meal, very cozy however the restaurant was a little dated.

We enjoyed the food. The sauces that came with the lamb were thankfully on the side as they shouldn’t have been anywhere near the meat.

The server was very friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. We also liked the fact that we double checked allergies with each dish we ordered.

There was hair in my food. I feel as if it was purposely put there after i no longer wanted a certain dish that was not up to standard. The food was also very bland.

I went to this restaurant for the first time on Saturday. Food was great! And our waitress was very nice and efficient. I ordered the grill lamb chops and it’s the best meal that I’ve had in a long time! Prices were a little high but the portions were large and the food was very tasty. I will say that the inside Decor was a little dated.

The quality of the rib steak was not as good as it used to be. The steak was very tasty and it was grilled as ordered, but it was very tough and chewy. This is the first time I’ve ever had a steak at Fresco that was not up to par. Hopefully, it was an anomaly that won’t happen again.

We went here for my mom's birthday and were all pleasantly surprised!!! We never heard of the restaurant before and it was in a shopping plaza, but we were glad we went! It's BYOB which is always a plus! We started off with some fried zucchini strips, spinach and beet salad and my brother had the French onion soup...all super yummy! For entrees we had the filet mignon, very different with the breadcrumbs...chicken francese, eggplant rollatine parmagiana and I had the flounder special. It was very buttery but super delicious! For dessert, the birthday girl had the ice cream pie (which was outstanding), my Aunt had the apple cobbler and my brother & I split the banana bomb cake. Our waitress was lovely, the place was spacious and crowded (even at 3:30pm on a Thursday) and the atmosphere was inviting!!! Overall we all enjoyed our dining experience & would recommend it to others...xoxo

Had lunch date with my girlfriends here and enjoyed it. The service was on point. Our appetizers were great we had the seafood platter. I ordered shrimp Francese for entree b/c of the amazing reviews I read about it but I thought it was on the bland side had to put salt and pepper on it. We had cannolis for dessert and they are great.

The food is always great and never disappoints . The cost for some things can be a little high but the prices are compatible to similar restaurants . It is worth a trip trying it out. In fact their other two restaurants, pontevechio and Lu cas are also very good. One word of advice , make reservations way in advance. They are always crowded and prime time is a challenge if you have more than two people.

Food was absolutely delicious I enjoyed it very much. The service was good. Waitress was friendly and courteous but took long a few times to get what we needed it. Fresco tends to be in the loud side since they are usually full house. Over all its good.

Fresco's remains a very good choice for any occasion. A menu of wide variety and always numerous specials to choose from. Service is always great with sufficient staff to ensure plates are cleared or water glasses refilled.
Four of us each chose a different entree, three choosing seafood and one lamb chops. There wasn't a model left on any of the plates. Case closed.

Fresco's food is a mainstay. We enjoy dining there infrequently. Their portions are generous but the tastes just miss the "wow" factor. We had the lobster bisque which was delicious, the steak was cooked perfectly, the potatoes were very flavorful. The shrimp was just to okay. The service is excellent and when the restaurant if full, it is very loud. I still recommend dining here and finding your favorite dish tp go back for. It is a BYOB which makes it reasonable night out cost wise.

Salad way over-dressed
Crab cakes drenched in sauce, causing them to be mushy
Capellini overcooked

All of this should never have happened- previous meals have always been top notch!
