We went for a quick dinner before going to the next door movie theater. The place was packed, both inside and out (Saturday evening). We sat outside which was fine, except that the valet parking seemed to take place right next to our table. Anyway, we ignored that. The service was a bit slow and we began to get nervous... More

Fresco offers something for everyone. You may find yourself ordering two appetizers instead of an entree. Service is usually attentive can slow down on their busy weekend nights. Park in the lot one over street and save yourself some trouble trying to find parking in busy Montclair.

My wife and I attended an event at Fresco's this past weekend. We were very impressed with the quality of the food at every level, most importantly taste. The appetizers and entrées were seasoned to perfection. As an Italian American and amateur cook, I, for one, tend to examine in detail with careful and/or critical attention each dish. I can... More

Went for lunch and sat outside in sidewalk dinning area. Our table was next to the busing table and the staff continuously spoke loudly and were making jokes in Spanish. It was obvious that they were making fun of a patron. It was very obnoxious. Food was average: we ordered Fresco pizza, Fresco salad with shrimp, and Chicken Milanese. Ordered... More

We visited our friend Marion who lives nearby last night I said Italian and she said let's try Fresco. (not related to the Fresco in NYC) I saw they had tables outside and since it was a cool evening we sat down. We shared a beet salad, $9.95 for two slices of beets and some yogurt cream,not great. Then we... More

Our waiter Jimmy was great. The only drawback is parking, what a hassle. Not the restaurants fault but something to keep in mind. Its a bring your own and... More

My family enjoys Fresco. We started going there early on and found the wait staff to be friendly and attentive. Once the restaurant took off, one waiter in particular always remembered us and would make a point of saying hello even if he was not working our area. On another occasion, my husband and I showed up at 10 pm,... More
