We happened upon this little gem after a work conference and we're lucky to get seats at the bar. Many locals told us we couldn't order anything that wasn't excellent. They were right. The food was amazing. The service was friendly and warm. I'd love to celebrate every birthday and anniversary there, but, since I don't live here, will have... More

We had a very large group that enjoyed the large variety of food available. The waitstaff was good, but overwhelmed by the numbers. Would definitely return!

I tried to find this beautiful restaurant on the list. I went through #1 to #200+ and was appalled not to find this gem within the top 200 in Orlando. They have chain restaurants and fast food places above this gourmet delight. I am sick. I went in with a friend after he had a medical procedure. We were looking... More

We recently visited for a business lunch and had a very good experience. Even though our party size was very big, everyone in our group was well taken care of. The appetizers shared by the group were well done and enjoyed. Everyone enjoyed their lunches as well. Due to our party size, we were able to try many of their... More

We drove across town to have dinner at Fresco's because we had heard how wonderful it was, however that was not our experience. I ordered Panzanella salad and Shrimp fra Diavolo. Both were so off-base in terms of taste and preparation that it was surprising. Panzanella is a tomato and stale-bread/crouton salad. I've had many variations on what else is... More

My family and I had dinner the last night of vacation at this restaurant and it did not disappoint! Being Italian, we are hesitant to go to unfamiliar places like this. It's sort of hidden in a shopping center but easy enough to find. We had a reservation (it was Friday night) and we were seated right away and had... More

Nestled in a strip mall is a jewel of an Italian restaurant. Wonderful tasting food. Ordered chicken picatta and it came with a delicious Mac and cheese. Found on trip advisor and went back to hotel concierge to tell them about this great find. A definite and can't wait to come back.

A local at the Marriott Grande Vista resort recommended this place as having wonderful Italian food. Boy, was she right! It is a family owned business with cooks from Napoli preparing food. The spicy tomato sauce was rich and tasty. Salads were fresh and crisp and the tiramisu was homemade by the owner and was the best I have ever... More

Visiting Orlando, looking to eat Italian, saw the reviews for Fresco Cucina and thought it could not be that good. Well it was that good and more - went back two days later. Food was fabulous, service great, hostess gracious. House wine just like those we had in Italy. Joe and Lisa
