I wanted Italian and the hotel desk clerk suggested Fresco Cafe. I’m glad he did. Food was fresh and well prepared. A nice wine list and excellent service. What’s not to like. If I am back in Bozeman I will definitely return.

Food was well cooked and seasoned. Quiet atmosphere mid-late evening. Location is easy to miss if you don't know where it is.
