The menus is extensive, the food is expertly prepared, the sunset views are breathtaking and you are never rushed. Highly recommend this for any couple looking for that "special treat."

We have dined at Fresco's many times over the years and every time the food and the service are excellent. The crab cakes are a favorite, yes they are pricey however they are the best crab cakes you will ever eat. All lump crab and broiled not fried. Delicious! The pasta, veal and seafood are all very good and the... More

My sister, my niece, and I went on a summer evening to Fresco's and had a great meal. Sat by a window with views of the bay and had reservations, which are recommended. The Caesar salad was great - lots of garlic and Parmesan with crisp romaine. Croutons could have been more flavorful. The escargot in pastry was tasty. Eggplant... More

Fresco's is decent Italian on the bay. Lots of windows and brightness. Food is reasonably priced and pretty good.

The bay views are beautiful, and the food is delicious. Ordered the eggplant dish and must say the sauce was excellent. The bumbleberry pie is a must have too, delicious pie crust filled with plump assorted berries. Perfect place for a nice dinner out at the beach.

My boyfriend and I went for dinner. The atmosphere was very Nice and romantic, beautiful views of the bay. I had the salmon and it was wonderful and flavorful. My boyfriend ordered a chicken Cesar salad that took forever to come out and the chicken was like rubber. Over all it was a pretty standard experience. A little over priced.

Was not very satisfied with this restaurant. The quality of the food did not match the price they charge. Been to several high end restaurants and this did not remotely compare. Olive Garden would have been a step up on the quality of food received. Waiter and staff seemed pleasant. Would never go back.

Likes: Good waiter, nice view! Dined here a few years ago and was pleased. Food was ok but overpriced and I don't mind dropping some cash on a good dining experience. Dislikes: Pricing, Carpaccio app was so skimpy I could hardly taste it. Mike Vaughn

Arrived early for a family dinner for eight and were seating immediately in a corner table with a view of the bay. Food was excellent and service was great ... we will be returning in 2014 and on other visits to the ocean.

We have always had a great experience when we visit Fresco's. We decided last minute on Father's Day to go out for a nice meal. It was easy enough to get on their website and get a reservation for 3 hours later. Our server was timely and attentive. This is one of the few restaurants that serves grilled calamari, a... More
