I have been here at least three times within the last year when I pass through the area and I have never been dissapointed. Off the main drag, pleasant outdoor seating, and good service. The food is great after shopping and winetasting all day. The salads (especially the Greek Salad) is great and the portions are of a good size.... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants to eat at, whether you are looking for Fish, pasta, pizza, meat or salad. Everything here is good. You can't go wrong with anything that you order the staff is friendly and helpful. Something here for everyone.

We have been going to the wonderful Fresco Cafe in Santa Barbara for years, but this was our first visit to its sister restaurant in a charming little plaza in Solvang. The place was understandably full of people, locals and visitors, at lunchtime. Beverages are self-serve, and food is ordered at the counter and brought to your table by gracious... More

Great big salads, delicious pizza that wasn't too greasy, and yummy burgers. Everyone at the table was happy with their selection. Desserts looked amazing but we were too full.

we had a veggie pizza and it was a pretty good one. Not very pricey. The ambience was perfect, and it had outdoor seatings too

I worked remotely from MN to plan a groom's reception for 90. Matt is a pro and no email, text or phone request went unattended. The indoor/outdoor venue provided our guests with the opportunity to become acquainted the evening before the wedding. A fantastic wine and beer selection, passed apps, and delicious dinner buffet received rave reviews. My son, the... More

When searching months ago for a venue for a Friday night groom's reception for 90 in Solvang, I came across Fresco's website. Because we reside in MN, I had nothing more to go on than Fresco's website and reviews...until I made contact with Matt. Then I knew our reception would be in the best of hands. No online or phone...

The restaurant was clean and quiet despite being busy. It was casual and artfully decorated. The service staff was friendly and professional. They were helpful and attended to our needs very well without hovering. They were efficient and treated all customers with respect. The food was hot and tasty. It was fresh, well prepared and well presented. The meals were... More

Our server wasn't very friendly, but there was another server at the tables near us who seemed very nice so I think it depends on who you get. They do have a good kids menu, but the food was pretty average. I ordered a pizza and the person with me got a sandwich. It wasn't bad and the prices were... More
