Bravo! I went to Fresco last Sunday afternoon. We had the absolute best time, best service and food! The wait staff was professional, prompt, friendly and courteous. The food was excellent as was the wine. I honestly felt like I was in a friend's home. I could tell there were regulars there because of how the guests interacted with the staff. It was refreshing. That is a great sign of a great place. The music is GREAT. The duo that plays will have you dancing in your chair. That is what kept us there beyond our lunch! Check this place out. Meet the owner. This will become your "go-to" restaurant for sure!
