Good basic Italian food

My wife and I met a friend here for dinner on a Tuesday evening and it wasn't too busy. The temperature was warm to dine out in the large patio area on the west side of the restaurant. Dinner was a bit disappointing as they were serving as a buffet, but the pasta was good and we were able to... read more

Ordered the Coconut Shrimp to start which was pretty good.. not a lot for the price. Then shard some Tortellini and a Buffalo Burger that were bother pretty well portioned for the price. Waitress was kind, not very attentive but it seemed busy. Would definitely try again sometime.

Located in a strip mall on a very busy, not-well-planned shopping area. I’d probably go more often if it was located somewhere else. Spacious and cheerful inside, fast and friendly service, pasta nice texture and not overdone, everything not smothered in tomato sauce so can taste the other elements in the sauce such as broccoli, garlic, creams. Parking a problem... More

Food was amazing. I had the strip loin. Caesar salad is excellent. Prices are reasonable and service was great. This restaurant is way better than Lina Linguini's across the road (which, as I understand, are owned by the same people). Wait staff is by far nicer, more knowledgeable and professional than across the street.

A group of six made up of family and friends went for dinner to celebrate a retirement. Reservations had been made. The table was suitably located and comfortably accommodated the size of our group. The waitress was friendly. She allowed us the additional time that we requested to place our orders. The food was delivered all at once, a very... More

This is my favourite place. My boyfriend and I come here a lot. We always get crab dumplings, warm goat cheese salad, greek fries and skor cheesecake. So yummy! I really like the vibe in there and the service is always nice. They make some neat martinis too.

We had our work Christmas party tonight. I recommended Fresco's to my associates, because I love going there to dine. They did not disappoint. The food, the service and the venue was perfect. We were a large group of 50. They did such an amazing job servicing all of us and accommodating some of my co-workers with allergies. We did... More

In town for an athletic tournament, it's very hard to anticipate when we'll eat so we can never make a reservation. Having tried a few other places at 7:30pm, Fresco's said they could seat 7 of us within 20 minutes and they did. It took awhile to get our food, but the waitress kept us informed, soit didn't seem that... More
