“Two different tastes, One Fine Restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Originally named in honor of their three daughters, Patrick Larrocca and his wife launched this new enterprise to enhance their very successful Italian family restaurant in the rapidly expanding Woodward Lake neighborhood in NorthEast Fresno. The addition of a very boisterous lounge and a well designed patio plus a tasty new cuisine assisted in weathering the recession, which took its toll on their original store, but Pat successfully blended both menu 's to retain the old favorites with the new tastes to satisfy all of clients, and added music on special occasions to attract a very diverse clientele. In my opinion, the Calamari and Eggplant Parmassion are the leader of any offered, and the Melanzani Capilinii is the best kept secret going!

“Great meal, friendly place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

We took a group of 8 for dinner and had a wonderful night. Base of Italian with a mix of Mexican - try the Italian nachos. We had a private room behind the wine cellar which was perfect for our group. Wine list had a nice mix and was reasonably priced. The Owner seemed to be very engaged and friendly. Highly recommneded.

“Always Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

I have eaten at Five several times and each time I wonder why I don't go there more often. Everytime I order a steak at Five it is fabulous. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Fresno. Three of us went there during restaurant week. Two of us ordered the petite filet and the other person ordered the salmon. Service was great as usual and so was the food.

“Great food, noisy at times”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

Fabulous food (be sure to get the pancetta &basil appetizer). Service very prompt and professional. Atmosphere can be very noisy with bar crowd and background music, not conducive to a quiet meal

“Friend of mine owns this place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Pat LaRocca owns "Five". When you walk in, he makes you feel like you're his best friend! He makes sure his guests are comfortable and satisfied with their food. Five has the cutest waiters, too!!!
