A group of friends ate at this restaurant on our 1st evening at a convention. I had the soup du jour, which was a lobster bisque (?). The bisque wasn't tasty and the lobster was bland. A friend's pasta was undercooked and another's chicken was tough. The wine selection was good. The other couple's food was good, they said. We... More

We had dinner at the restaurant. My veal dish was too salty and the server replaced it immediately with a less salty chicken dish that was very good. Dinner was outside on the veranda. Very comfortable and the service was fine. The menu is pricey, but all menus at the resort are pricey. The restaurant is child and family friendly.... More

Fresco Italian Restaurant was highly recommended as being 'Great' Italian food. Frankly, we were disappointed! After paying over $90 for four side salads and four small bowls of soup - no wine or soft drinks - we were seriously unimpressed. Granted service was good, ambiance ok, but food portions extremely small and food quality marginal. When staying at Hilton Hawaiian... More

It has been years since I have dined here because when I went several years ago, the service and food was not good. I thought I would bite the bullet so to speak and try it again today for lunch. I had a wonderful server who gave me excellent service with a smile. But the food? I ordered a Seafood... More

In the Hawaiian Village, so it was close to the hotel. We had dinner here one night because we were tired and didn't feel like venturing out. We are so glad we did. Masa took good care of us and we truly enjoyed the food. We shared both the Spaghetti Alla Carbonara Granchio and the Rigatoni Con Salsiccia All’ Arrabbiata.... More

Drinks were good and the carbonara was good too. Service was only okay. But we were happy with our meals.

They had a great menu selection and although a bit pricey, they were very good. I had the lasagna and I enjoyed it very much.

My wife and I had dinner on a Friday night in December 2016. We ordered a rib eye and an ‘Aragosta al Vapore’. Both were quite bland and definitely not up to the quality we expect from an Italian restaurant. Very expensive and not worth it.

We had dinner there and weren't disappointed. Service was good and food tasted very good. Easy restaurant to get to if staying at HHV. They have a decent kids menu as well. No complaints.

We had come to Fresco Italian Restaurant and we came back for the good Italian food. This time, however, we found that though the food was still pretty good, we did have some issues with their "Happy Hour" policy. When we first walked in, we were told that we would have to wait at least 10 minutes for a seat... More
