Fresco's was recommended by the owners of Ridley Gate Manor B&B. Wonderful recommendation. Loved the food and atmosphere.

Nice place to eat, but its sister restaurant Lina Linguinis is better value. Price range is $$, but it can accommodate people who would like booths, bar, or comfy chairs.

There was a hair in our appetizer (we didn't say anything) then there was a hair in my friends dinner which I had to get up to go find our server because she was no where to be found. My dinner was stone cold. Nothing was offered or compt. Not that I'm... More

This was our 5th time here over a 2-3yr period. Initially we loved this place, service food and ambiance were all very good. I understand this is not fine dining, but I do expect certain things when eating out. My first hint to the decline should have been the overall appearance of the outside parking area....papers and litter strewn all... More

This was our third visit to Fresco's. It's become a kind of tradition now to visit this great restaurant once a year when taking our kid back to Brock. Every meal we have eaten at this place has been served like a work of art, a warm, delicious work of art. On this occasion Melanie, our waitress was friendly and... More

Our social meetup group came here for dinner on the way back from a day in the Niagara region, and I was not disappointed. We were assigned a very private, quiet dining room for our group of around 50 for our ten course Italian dinner. All of the courses were very tasty and the staff were very efficient and friendly....

We ate at Fresco's for the Sunday brunch buffet and were very pleased with the quality of the food selections. The service was good, and they even brought out tiramisu with a sparkler for birthdays we were celebrating. Excellent Eggs Benedict, tasty pasta to order, and a wide assortment of other good foods. Best of all was the desert bar,... More

Wonderful meals (Sunday Brunch and Friday dinner). My kids loved this place! The menu, food quality and service were outstanding. The dessert is to die for! On our trip to Niagara and Toronto, this was my kids consensus favorite.
