I was not allowed to give no stars so I selected an average rating. This restaurant is under renovation and I understand that they are planning a new menu and a new name. They are not open at this time

I visited Al Fresco's on Thursday evening (5/15/14) and found the door open, restaurant closed with personnel working to remove furniture or renovate the place. I could not tell for sure and the only person there that I spoke with could not speak English, of course! So if anyone knows what's up with the business, by all means please advise.... More

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

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.
