we find ourselves coming back to this spot because the outside dining is a plus, and the inside has a nice atmosphere. but the food is average and certainly not memorable. we have never had an awful meal here, but i can't recount one outstanding dish either. the service is fine and the waitstaff attentive, but the food is average....

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

Went to this restaurant with a few friends to catch up and have some good food. The food was really good. Everyone was happy with their dishes. Restaurant is pretty inside. 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

I went with 3 other couples and several bottles of wine. We all had a really good time. The food was so good we all had to taste a little of each other's plates. Our waiter was a pro and he made sure we were well taken care of. Great location and outdoor dining on Church Street. I would definitely... More

Stopped in for a nice leisurely lunch on Saturday.....boy were we surprised. While the food was just ok, being rushed is not one of my favorite activities. Busboys are obviously trained to take items off of your table WHILE YOU'RE EATING in order to get ready for the dinner service. The place was not crowded inside or out, and when... More

Where to begin? Well when we first walked in, the place looked nice, however you cant judge a book by its cover. We where seated promptly, as there where only 5 other tables already seated in the restaurant. Our ‘waiter’ took about 10 minutes to greet us, and when he did – he didn’t say a word, NOT A WORD!...
