    Our social club held a dinner event at Tutto Fresco (Rancho Santa Margarita, Ca.) last night and it was excellent. Despite the rain the atmosphere was warm and inviting. The food & wine was outstanding as was the service. After dinner the chef came out and thanked us for visiting the restaurant. You don’t get too many evenings like this one.

    Must have been an off night. We have had several fine meals there but this time was disappointing. It started with the walk in the front door. The hostess just ignored us while she worked on the computer. No greeting or I need a minute to fix this. Plus two other people stood beside her and ignored us as well. Then they took us to a table that was in full sun which we said we couldn't sit at. So to punish us they took to a poorly placed table inside next to a large group. When the waiter poured the champaign we ordered, he seriously overflowed the glass, said he would return to clean it up but that was the last we saw of him. The food was tasty but by then the evening was ruined. I guess they have enough business they no longer care about providing a top-notch experience. It will be a while before we try this place again.

    The barramundi and risotto are fantastic! The barramundi is mild and moist and the risotto is creamy and blends well with the fish. The lasagna is the ultimate in comfort food. The calamari was just ok. It was a little on the chewy side and greasy.

    Well can’t comment on anything except they only held our reservation for 12 minutes and then let it go. We were running a little late and when we checked in they said they had released our reservation. It was 12 minutes from our reservation time which I’ve never heard of not allowing 15 minutes minimum. I won’t go back.

    Great place for date night. Had the pasta with shrimp and lobster which was delicious! And the side dish of brussel sprouts was smothered in balsamic vinegar with just the right amount of garlic...yum! Hubby had the meat loaf (meat loaf in an Italian resto?) and he said it was very good. Nice James Taylor music being performed live on the outside patio topped off the ambiance. Always a great place to have dinner, but make reservations on busy nights to avoid long waits!

    Very poor AC on one of hottest days of year. Service started ok, but somehow just went down hill with long wait for water, drinks, wine. Some of dishes were fine, several overly salted to point of not being edible. Very disappointing and somewhat chaotic evening.

    Our server was really backed up and it took 20 minutes to get a drink. It took us another 10 minutes before we could order food. When the food came out it was made incorrectly. We also had to wait awhile for refills. I understand our waitress wasn’t feeling good and was relieved. Management was nice enough to apologize for the inconvenience but it was 50 minutes before I was able to start eating. The food was great. We ordered dessert and my wife had a few drinks. Our bill was over $100. The cost was not a problem. What I notice in dining out often is the classy restaurants acknowledge the customers that go through as much as we did and tend to offer some type of discount or future offering to return back. Though it’s not necessary and I will be going back again and again, it would have been nice at least being offered a small discount for the inconvenience.

    Three of us went to Tu Tu Fresco for lunch, and it was delicious as always. Two of the ladies had pasta and loved them, and I had the roast beef (dip) sandwich, which was one of the best sandwiches I've had. The tomato soup that I ordered with it was very delicious too. We will definitely be back. Our waitress was very friendly, efficient, and quick with the water refills, and asking if there was anything else we wanted.

    Arrived 5:00 pm for early dinner, not crowded at all, probably early. We ordered 2 different entrees were very good with large portions and service was good, later a lady came by and asked how all was, ( maybe a manager on duty,) did not identify herself, was very nice and polite. We shared sorbet which was good and soon after left. A favorite place to go, love patio! Food always good and bread with vinegar and olive oil! Only negative I feel is that their are a few seats that are too close together for me, you can hear all of next tables conversation and they can listen to yours!

    An unusual bad experience. Our Food came out in a fragmented way. My son’s meal trailed by 15 minutes. They offered a free desert but I would have preferred at least his meal to be comped. We will still come to Tutto because I do feel this was an unusual experience.

    I've been dining at Tutto Fresco since it first opened at their original location down the street. I have never had a bad meal. The service has always been quick and courteous. I would recommend it highly to anyone. Their free range chicken breast is excellent and moist. I would also say that I've never seen a larger more well-cooked piece of chicken parmigiana ever.
