“Search this out; it will be worth it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Does Pesce Fresco offer the best, most creative dining experience in Denver? Probably not but what it does offer is a consistently excellent experience in a surprising location. It is tucked away in a small strip mall but once inside you'll forget all about that. We have been here four times within the past year and have always been pleased by the quality of the food, the choices available and the excellent service. It is a pleasure to support a family run business that offers such dependable quality.

“Nice restaurant, good food and nice ambiance but pricey...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We went to Pesce Fresco last Saturday with a group of friends and we really enjoyed the restaurant and the atmosphere. They have a nice bar area that opens up to outside and they had live music on Saturday night.

There were 8 of us and we sat in the main dining room. I believe everyone in our group enjoyed their food and the service was good, minus a few glitches but nothing serious (received wrong salad but our waitress took care of it).

I enjoyed my scallops saltimboca but the dish only had 3 scallops for $24 it seems a bit steep for what I got. They were served over pasta and some veggies. (I would have expected at least twice that many scallops for that price...)I would not order it again.

Other that the portions being on the small size and a bit pricey - the food, ambiance and service were all great.

It is a nice place for special occasions. Our dinner was over $100 with tips for 2 (one appetizer we shared, two glasses of wine, 2 entrees and one dessert we shared and 2 decaf coffees) which is a bit expensive.

It is located inside a strip mall and we did not have any issues with parking ( we were early - reservations at 6:00 pm for 8) but I imagine that it could be an issue if the place gets busy.

“Disappointing Visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Having dined here many times, our recent visit was not up to the quality we have come to expect from this restaurant. Appetizers and the salad course were average at best. The entrees were very good but the portions were small. I believe they are trying to lower costs to compete and the result is less on the plate. There are better places in the vicinity and we'll try those first before returning to Pesce Fresco.

“Great food at affordable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

I have heard about this restaurant for years, but never got to go. Went for lunch for the first time and really enjoyed the meal and atmosphere. So we made reservations for New Years Eve for a group of fiends. We're not disappointed. Definitely a price performer for this special night. One of the specials was a whole lobster for $29 and it was delicious! They also had a one man band in the bar area for background music. I hear their happy hour is good, especially in the summer when they have a patio. Can't wait for weather to warm up to try it.

“Wonderful place to celebrate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Pesce Fresco is my favorite "go to" place in Denver. The food is excellent; the owners and staff are friendly and caring. I recently took my family there for a special birthday celebration in the Wine Room, available by reservation for such occasions. It was perfect for the young children, allowing the parents to enjoy themselves and the food. Thank you to Pesce Fresco for the wonderful memories.
