Great staff that were very nice and very knowledgeable of the menu and chef favorites. They even had some great chef specials on a Tuesday night! Very reasonably priced, definitely worth checking out if you are in the area! Great for groups, family night out, or a date.

We loved Tutto Fresco! The staff is beyond amazing and the ambiance is beautiful. The food was good and plentiful. We had the pork tenderloin and shrimp risotto, along with the chicken vesuvio. All delicious and well prepared. We will visit again.

Do not understand why more people do not go as food was excellent as well as service and value. Outside is good and it is probably the ambience which deters people but it should not

Fried calamari is a dish I use to judge the quality an Italian American restaurant. The calamari was fried to perfection! A friend had steak - a damn good NY Strip cooked to medium rare. Good sized portions, great seafood pasta, very good spaghetti carbonara. The staff was very attentive, wonderful.

I was disappointed because I specifically booked a table outdoors and the option was given when I booked the reservation but when we arrived we were told that the patio was booked for a private party. Why would they give an option to book indoors or outdoors if the outdoor patio was not available? This is especially important to me during covid. The restaurant was not full when we were seated but then got busy so we had to rush through dinner because we were not comfortable eating inside a busy restaurant. The food was excellent and our waiter was great and so nice but they need to cut off the option to book outdoor seating if it is not going to be available. A lot of people do not feel safe eating indoors during covid.

I was looking for a nice place with a patio, and boy did I luck out! The covered patio is lovely, but the food and customer service were really outstanding. First, we ordered wine and then Shrimp Vesuvio, and a Caprese salad. Both were quite good. I ordered the Pollo Limone with spinach. Delicious, and I finished everything on my plate. One friend got the seafood Diavolo, and she really liked it. We had such a good time, and they never rushed us so we could relax. The nicest servers you could ever meet! For the dolce, I had an affogato and my friend got cappuccino gelato. Yum! It was refreshing to go somewhere that was unpretentious, friendly, and affordable.

The food and service were fantastic. I'm always surprised that it's so easy to get a table here. The salads are huge and fresh, the appetizers delicious and the entrees are excellent. The tortellini soup is not to be missed! We always order a take out bowl for later. A great place to dine.

The server was attentive but not intrusive. He let us take our time and enjoy our conversation. The risotto was amazing. The brusetta was a little too garlicy and not a lot of tomato (weird that just open faced a cherry tomato and laid it on top). Overall, a good solid Italian dinner. It was quiet but it was also a Wednesday night.

They gave me the wrong dish and offered no sort of solution besides remaking it after we had already been waiting quite a while. They didn’t como/offer a discount/ or try to remedy the situation in any way.

The food was very average, they never brought out bread for the olive oil and cheese that was sitting on the table. Just not that great of a place overall.

Really attentive staff and very friendly easy going. Had a baby with us and gave us the best possible spot away from other customers and in the corner with an extra big table for 6 (we are party of 4), plenty of space for stroller near the edge of the enclosed area. Very accommodating. Gave us jug of hot water to heat up the milk. I had gnocchi, very authentic pasta and Marinara sauce with other sauce options as well. Pasta and food are really great and ordered a bottle of wine, bill comes out to be just under 50/ person even after tax and tips. Wow. Parking on street right in front super convenient to the new parents. Will definitely come here again and recommending to everyone.
