Fresco has delicious fresh Italian food. It is also kid-friendly and with great service. The wine list was short but had good Italian wine for reasonable prices. Two of us got the veal specials of the day. One was a veal Milanese that was huge and quite tasty. The other was an out-of-this world giant grilled veal chop. The wood-fired pizza was excellent as was the lasagna! After all this food, we could not believe that we let our server talk us into a tiramisu for the table. Good choice! It was amazingly rich and but still had subtle flavors. We are already talking about a return visit the next time we are in Orlando.

Our family is in town to visit Universal and needed to get "off campus" for a nice meal in a low-key setting. This place had great food, attentive, friendly servers and the owner was a sweetheart. It was just the experience we were looking for in the craziness of Orlando. Piano player was a cool touch as well!

Went to Fresco for dinner with the family, Everything we ordered was delicious ! We had soup and pizza for entrees. The spaghetti bolognaise the lobster ravioli and lasagna were excellent . Great atmosphere and service was excellent and not expensive .Too bad we found this restaurant on our last night in Orlando because we would definitely come back if we had another night in the area.

What a great find on Trip Advisor, in a shopping plaza no less!
The Chianti suggested by our waitress was spot on. My son had Lobster Ravioli- he loved it. My husband and I both had Veal Parmigiana- I went with the penne, he went with the linguine. It was an authentic Italian meal. Fantastic staff, very attentive!
We will be back!
