This is a very quiet place and it has piano music at night, it has a nice outdoors seating area with a pretty fountain. Very romantic but perfect for a girls day! We were taken care of by Susan who was very helpful when it came to food allergies. The food was FANTASTIC. You get a lot for your money... More

I always enjoy going to Al Fresco's. I always sit outside on the terrace with the gas lanterns and waterfall. Music is played outside such as Frank Sinatra and other mood music. It is a place to go when you want to enjoy a meal and not be in a hurry. The House Speciality is Manicotti and it is delicious!!!... More

Went out with family from Memphis. Everything was great this time. The pasta, the seafood, the ambiance. Thanks for an enjoyable evening.

Great ambiance, fair prices & ok service. Wife's manicotti was good and friends had no complaints. BUT, my pizza was doughy and tasteless. Will try something different next time, definitely will go back. You should try it.

Last night, we ended up in downtown Ocean Springs so we decided to eat at Al Fresco's. Upon arrival we debated over the beautiful courtyard or dining room. We decided on the dining room because the air was cool out. However, on a nice night I will return to enjoy the lovely area they have set. The dining room has... More

While at the Frank Anderson art festival my sisters, mother and I had the pleasure of dining at Al Fresco's in Ocean Springs MS. Great food, great staff and service. I had the grilled shrimp salad. which was awesome! Everyone else had the pasta and was just as pleased. Will go back again.

Nice little restaurant in downtown Ocean Springs at first appearance. Ambiance was great and the bread served with olive oil and seasoning was delicious. Crab cake appetizer was good. Main courses were over seasoned with lemon or bland with no taste. Service was great. Wished that food had been better.

Had one of their roast beef sandwiches with au jus sauce specials!! So tender and juicy and full of flavor! The service was amazing, and if you get the opportunity, sit outside!! The flames in the water fountain will mesmerize you!
