Like finding a little unknown restaurant in Florence. Delicious entrees with great service. Our friends loved it too!
Neighborhood gem and excellent service. Great pasta dishes.
Wonderful dinner. Very Italian!
Excellent food and service! Will come back for sure!
I was ok with the food end wait service until my sister-in-law told me that they didn’t call her back when she left onions and jam under the table. I was definitely not on the mark when I heard that and I left. 30% tip.
As always, our evening at Trattoria Fresco was very good.
We love the cozy neighborhood ambiance, and our salads and pastas were excellent.
Excellent Homemade Italian fare and a good wine list. Portions are smaller but filling and a good value. Quaint neighborhood restaurant.
Salad as appetizer had room for improvement. Pasta was one of the best in Bay Area. Very friendly server. Small place, you think you are in Italy.
We have eaten here twice and have had delicious meals both times. Great lamb chops and pizza. Local casual restaurant with lovely attentive owner. We are going back tonight with a group of friends
Absolutely love this place. The food is amazing - delicious, fresh authentic. Been to Italy so I know what I am talking about. Truly a Marin County gem!
A great neighborhood bistro for small groups of friends to eat very good italian food.
Pretty good, not a place for impressing your OK Cupid guest...friendly to families. They need to rename the chicken balls entree to chicken Meatballs and offer four on the plate instead of three. Tasty little morsels!
Good food, wonderful service and fun atmosphere
great to share with friends.
Unfortunately the food was good but the owner was incredibly rude...a real bummer
Trattoria Fresco never fails to please. Everything is well prepared and satisfying. Great pasta dishes and deserts to kill for. The absolute only quibble I have is that when the party of 7 I was with requested more bread we were told they'd only baked one loaf and they ran out. Oh well, things happen. This is a great small and intimate restaurant.
Great service. Food was fresh. Awesome.
Hate bad reviews but maybe this can be a wake up call. I remember now why we haven't been back in years. Food was far too expensive,poor quality and boring presentation. Had to send my steak strips back, not med rare as ordered. The garlic and oil spinach was very good. This place could be a great local find if they upped their game. Saturday night and the place was pretty empty.
Ordered 3 pasta dishes - all tasted about the same, small portions for the price. We left hungry and disappointed
I always enjoy dining at Trattoria Fresco. Marco has created a fabulous restaurant.
This restaurant is a gem! We had a very nice dinner before attending a play at the Ross Valley Players. The romano and green salads were so fresh and delicious. I had the pasta with a delicate red sauce and wild boar meat, which was scrumptious. My date enjoyed the salmon in truffle oil with potatoes and vegetables. And we couldn't resist having the dark chocolate mousse with vanilla ice cream for dessert.
While the food is delicious, that's not quite the point here. Open Table's questionnaire suggests the phrase "neighborhood gem" and that's what Trattoria Fresco is. A small, modest room with efficient service. A nice selection of appetizers, entrees and wine. Above all, low key so you can actually unwind and enjoy your company and the meal. We love it.
excellent always, as it has been for many years Perfect Italian cuisine, fresh, simple, extremely well prepared. QUIET ambince, very comfortable and very northern Italian
This was a really delicious meal. We started with the sausage pasta, and it was perfect!
So tasty, and the pasta was just right.
For the second course, we had the wild salmon, and it was one of the best salmon dishes I've had.
Tira Misu was delicious for a finishing touch.
Marco was very helpful and friendly. The ambiance was great; very quiet and romantic.
This is a true "neighborhood gem." Highly recommended!
The food at this little neighborhood gem is outstanding. Simply delightful. The pasta was cooked to al dente perfection, and the sauces--on both our dishes--were sublime.
The food was outstanding, but the service was subpar. It's possible that it was an off night, or a bad day, but overall the waitress provided unacceptable service. For spending the amount that we did, the value of the food was great, but the service was bad. It would be questionable whether we would recommend the place to a friend. We would probably give it a second chance, but would likely see how it pans out spending much less and heading over to La Loggia in San Anselmo for some wine.
I was hopeful after reading some other reviews, but this place never got there. I believe the owner was on premise, but even though there was only one table occupied (of the 7-8 in the restaurant), no one greeted us for several minutes. The owner came by and gave a cursory greeting. Waitress didn't seem excited about her job or the food. Questions about the pastas came back with "I don't know, everyone's different" response. The pasta itself was OK, though the creamy tomato sense was quite bland. My Italian sausages were dry and the cannelloni beans also lacked a certain savoriness. Again, bland.
Won't be back.
Average food and small selection.
quiet , great food, simple décor and a neighborhood favorite.
Beautifully seasoned Italian cuisine . Pleasant out going chef who manages to greet to cook and serve
