Had an excellent meal, wine and sat at the bar. Loved it. However, I was surprised the bread wasn't real Italian focaccia. Too light and airy to be considered Italian.

Fresco Cafe has very good food. I have eaten there 4 times. The consistency of a meal's taste, size and presentation is dependable. Service is good. No long waits. Nice atmosphere.

Saturday night dinner - glad we had a reservation. Some good specials, and I enjoyed their spaghetti Carbonara (though not as good as my friend's in Rome!). Previously had lunch at Fresco - that was good, too. Service was good both times.

This restaurant is located in a cute location and is cozy inside. Our meal started with an easy starter and large salad, and ended in blah main courses. I ordered the mild salmon with penne.. The salmon was the worst I have ever had; completely fishy, tiny (though I am not complaining because I didn't eat any of it past... More

Two couples were heading out on a "culinary weekend." Bozeman was lunch time, so after some discussion, we stopped at the Fresco Café. Lovely little café, nice views, quiet, attentive service. The lunch menu was mostly Italian and Panini's--with a nice selection of wines and local beers. The crowd was light, but steady--a good sign for lunch. The menu was... More

Nothing wrong with the food here but I can not return until they fix the acoustics in the room. Very loud and could not hear myself think. Its too bad because the food is top notch. Very off day for the service as well, hopefully that is not the case on a daily basis.

Thank you for coming into Fresco. We are glad that the food was good, but sorry to hear that our service was not up to par. We will share this information with our servers and be sure that we improve on busy nights like this past Friday. We are also aware of out acoustic problems, and a solution with sounds... More

As good as we find in Portland OR, at the gateway to Yellowstone Park. We never expected to find something this good. The owner stocks boutique wines from a very small distributor.

My wife and I went to Fresco's new location on Mendenhall and the atmosphere is much different. It feels a lot more upscale than it did in their old location, It is also a bit larger, maybe about twice the size of the old location. The tables are still close together, but the food totally makes up for it. I... More

Love the food here, and we had a wonderful server, but miss the quaintness and serenity of the previous location. The new location, which has very limited parking around it, it much more hustle & bustle, and inside is noisier with the concrete floors & walls. The outside patio is lovely...if you can get a table. We'll still call in... More

I'm thrilled with the new downtown location of Fresco. They've done a great job with the menu, decor and bar. I had been there twice with family, and liked it so much I brought our out-of-town guests on our third visit. Everyone liked it, everything from the atmosphere to the food to the excellent service. The menu is fresh-Italian, with... More
