Go for a nice evening out

This was my first time here. It was difficult to find a parking spot because this restaurant is so popular and many were meeting for end of the year celebrations. The seating is rather close together and we found that the table was a bit small to hold the large menu and drink menus. We were... read more

This is a solid Italian restaurant for people who appreciate locally owned, non-chain restaurants in Fresno. The pasta and pizzas have always been excellent and I think the Tuscan nachos are unique and delicious. Ambiance is lovely, but it can be quite loud for some. Overall this is probably the best restaurant choice for people in North Fresno.

Went to Five for Christmas Eve dinner and had a 6:30pm reservation. Everything was going well until we went to order some more drinks and we were told the bar was closed and last call was at 7:30pm. At no time when we made the reservation or when we were seated did anyone tell us that the bar was closing... More

Great place to get together with old friends. Had a drink and a pizza with a friend last night. We sat out on the patio (They have heaters). The waiter kept checking up on us. This is a great place to have your birthday party (If you're an adult). I recommend the combo pizza during happy hour.

Been there a few times while on Business travel. The stuffed ravioli is very good and usually order when i am there but still when i come back East, the Italian is on another level. It is good for the price and service is wonderful. Will visit again.

I recommend eating here if you are celebrating something. The food was very good, but pricey for just a simple night out.

I have to admit that my wife and I only came because we were given a gift card. We had eaten at Five twice before in their early days, but we were not impressed. The food seemed uninspired, expensive, under-seasoned, and considering all of the good restaurants in Fresno—irrelevant. Even with the gift card providing us a free meal, we... More

Both our dishes - Rigatoni al Pollo and Farfalle Monto Rosa - were very good. Only downside was the noise. The main dining room has hardwood floors and the tables are close together. We sat for dinner at 7:30 so many of our fellow diners were well into their 2nd or 3rd glass of wine. We were unable to hear... More

Dinner was good--especially the lamb chops and service was attentive. It was nice to have an option to add a small salad with dinner for $5-$6 --especially one that had all of the special ingredients (nuts, fruit, etc) usually reserved for larger (and higher priced) options. What made our rating just Average was the atmosphere--due to the noise level, it... More

I was completely taken off guard...I basically had zero expectations since this was my first visit to Fresno and was not amused with this city (first night our car was broken into). The food tasted great, clean/pleasant atmosphere and the service was on the point. Felt like we had 3 different people helping our table. I would definitely come back... More
