Description: Al Fresco Restaurant lets you feast on a bountiful array of Italian specialties. The outstanding menu, featuring pasta, chicken, veal and seafood, highlights a spectrum of lavish Italian specialties that are sure to please discriminating palates. Al Fresco Restaurant was planned with the summer in mind. An outdoor patio with a warm breeze and cold drinks are a perfect combination.

I've eaten many times at Al Fresco over the years, it really is the best Italian restaurant I have ever had the pleasure to frequent. I would highly recommend it.

“Good Quality and Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

We enjoyed a very good meal last night at Al Fresco. Nice ambiance. Veal Verbena and Pollo Portofino were outstanding and the portions were large enough for leftovers. Service attentive and price was reasonable. Definitely a keeper in our new neighborhood.

“Great Lunch after Appointment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

Stopped at Al Fresco for a late lunch on a Friday afternoon. Really enjoyed my veal parmigiana. Very tender veal with tasty marinara and plenty of cheese. Had the Caesar salad with, well done. My wife had pasta and a Caesar. Great meal.

“Great Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This restaurant serves the best Italian food in Hampton Roads. The linguini al vongole is exceptional. All the dishes are great. Service is friendly and prompt. Wine list is extensive and has something at every price point. Many people come here to dine prior to a show at the Ferguson Center. On those nights especially, you need a reservation.l
