Business associates first suggested Fresco on a visit a few years ago. I arrived at prime time without reservations and dined at the bar. It was a beautiful early summer evening, the windows were open and it was wonderful. The bartender was attentive, knowledgeable and interesting. The food was delicious. I have returned regularly since and usually sit in the dining room. I have never had anything but a great experience.

I love this place! This is where I would want to bring people to impress with awesome food and service. The hostess was genuinely hospitable, the bar staff was super busy but attentive and friendly, ( the Italian apple martini was divine), and this was just the beginning. It was date night for my husband and I, which we never have, and the whole dining experience was excellent. The sommelier helped with our wine selection, and I was pleased he didn't just try to sell anything expensive. The place was buzzing. Our waiter was very professional, and the entire staff made us feel like we were a guest in their home. Even the owner graciously walks around to make sure all of the guests are happy. We will definitely be back next date night.

Just got back from Fresco and had to rave about it. I have been seeing them on television and decided to check it out. The girls and I went for drinks and dessert. This place has an incredible wine list, and the best deserts around. Everyone was friendly and we felt like we were sitting among family. Anthony Scotto came around and was talking, and laughing with everyone. We had a great time and will be going back soon. PS Anthony was even more attractive in person.

When I arrive at Fresco I think of the great restaurants that New York has always been known for. I have been frequenting Fresco since its inception and they never fail in making me feel at home and reward me with something new on the menu. I find the food exceptional and they are always delivering great new dishes formulated from good Italian recipes that the family has perfected over the years. I think this sets it apart from other restaurants in their milieu. The pastas are great, the fish dishes always done to perfection and garnished with something that brings out the flavor. I think their steak for two is probably one of the best in the city. The desserts are killers. Try their Italian cheesecake Let's face it when you walk into Fresco and are greeted by that wonderful family you are NY. The place hums yet the wait staff are always very attentive. The owners who head up the place never fail to come to your table to see if you are being taken care of. I have brought people there from all over the country and they all leave thrilled with the dining experience. Fresco has nailed it.

While we were greeted and seated promptly, the problem began with our waiter. He did not ask if we wanted a cocktail or offer a wine list, he gave us the specials, left for 2 minutes, then returned and took our order. I told him I wanted a glass of merlot and he just kinda shrugged and wanted to know what I was ordering. We barely started eating the potato and zuchini chips when we received our entree. He just handed us dessert menus, not asking if we wanted to see a menu and then handed us the check before we were finished with dessert. He was more interested in serving the "ladies" then my husband and myself. I read a review that said they "treat you like family". My family treats me much better than this waiter did. Food was good, but not worth the service. I would not go back and instead eat at a restaurant with good food and better service (since it being NYC, would not be difficult to find). The entire meal took less than one hour. I have never felt so rushed before and the restaurant was not even crowded!
