Good dinner

This is a great place for a date. A date where you just need a lone time with no interruptions of televisions, or any screens showing something in the background. The restaurant is clean, and the food is good and relatively affordable. I would recommend this place.

Everyone at work chose Fresco’s as the choice for a colleague’s retirement luncheon. There were about 20 of us in our party. Due to the fact that we were able to pre-order a few weeks in advance, our meals were ready soon after we arrived. The service was quick! I had the Gyro Wrap and a house salad, with the... More

As a Brock Alumni, I loved this place when I lived here. When I took my husband a few years later I was glad to see nothing has really changed! The atmosphere was still nice and the food was still pretty good! The salad and bread that accompanies the meal is great value and I really liked my ravioli!

Just left Fresco's where I had an excellent lunch meeting with my work colleagues. The service was friendly and fast. The food was delicious as always. I had the Pasta special and salad. My peers really enjoyed their lunch choices. It was their first time there. I really love this place. Never disappointed! Thanks Fresco's!

We participated in a wedding rehearsal party on Feb. 12, 2015 at Fresco's. The food was amazing and the service was superior. Everything was perfect!

We were just there for supper and the vegetable mix of carrots, broccoli, peppers and green beans were completely raw/hard. They need to be at least cooked to be tender crisp to enjoy. If you are gluten free you have to ask server, because nowhere in the description did it say the stuffed chicken breast was breaded. Would have asked... More

Let me first say I used to rave about how great this place was. A year ago I went to fresco and notice there being stingy on there portion size but the food was still great quality. I went with family for Christmas this year and what a disaster we all asked for medium rare not well done and we... More

I love the feel and look of this restaurant. In with my mother for lunch today, it was her birthday. She picked Frescos. We were sat promptly and were greeted by a very nice waitress. We had Crab Dumplings and calamari for a appetizer. Next course was Creamy Chicken Fettuccine and Chicken Sausage Penne, plus it includes a salad. Value!... More
