This restaurant is a gem!!! If you visit Asheville, it is definitely worth the drive to Black Mountain to eat here! Everyone there was so friendly, including the owner! It was recommended by one of the shopkeepers in town when asked where to have dinner. It did not disappoint! From the starter of crostini with three homemade spreads to the... More

Wonderful local place in Black Mountain near Asheville. Definitely worth the 15 minute drive from Asheville. The absolute best pizza I've ever had -- and that's coming from a NY pizza snob! Friendly staff, prompt service.

My fiance and I stopped here as a last stop before going home from a weekend in Asheville. We stopped through Black Mountain to see the sights mentioned in "One Second After" - a great book we had just read that featured many sights in this town. The pizza place is small but offers a wonderful selection and is made... More

Cozy little pizza and pasta joint. Pizza crust is perfect, thin and delicious. Marinara was tasty and fresh. Generous pasta dishes. Local beers. Would come again in a heartbeat!

This was my family's first visit to Fresh. It's a small place with lots of great outdoor seating. It was cold and raining when we went so we sat inside. It was crowded and the tables were close but we didn't mind. We tried cheesy bread and two different pizzas. The were wonderful and you really could taste the freshness.... More

One of my daughters has celiac disease so when we travel eating out can be problematic. On a trip to Asheville we stopped in Black Mountain. We had read up on gluten free options before we left so we started out immediately looking for this restaurant. Be advised it is not readily seen from the main street if you are... More

We love this place. We go several times a year. The owner and his wife are friendly and also are part owners of the black mtn biscuit company. Everything we have tried had been very good. Sometimes it takes a little while because the wood burning oven but it's worth the wait. The servers are all nice and are great.... More

Some of the best pizza you will ever have. Make sure to order with or without char as it really is cooked in a wood fire. We also had a baked pasta dish that was excellent. We always go here every time we are in the area. If you only eat at one place, this is it. Very casual. Great... More
