Veal piccata was very good and service was excellent. Bread was good too.

Excellent choice for Italian. Come here. Very good food. We visited as a large group on the recommendation of a local and are so glad we did. The owner is so kind and sat us in a quiet spot at our request. Nice but not too fancy; good for a family. A little farther than I'd thought from Williamsburg or Newport News but so so worth it. I'm craving the penne Alla vodka and will insist on returning when we visit the area again.


Great local Italian restaurant with a great wine list and reasonable prices. A favorite "destination dining" spot

Friend Recommended The Resturant. Always Looking For somewhere Different! Food Was Good not Great, Service Was A little slow,As the Waitress Was Very Busy. It looked like the needed More help! Are server was Nice and Great when she could make it to the table. We Might go Back But Aldo’s and Isle Of Capri Are still the best on Our list.


Went there for my mom's birthday and the food was amazing especially the flounder alfresco. Will definitely recommend that place had a blast. The waiters and way staff were standing around but we were there super early.

We thoroughly enjoyed my birthday celebration at Al Fresco’s! Everyone had a wonderful time! The food was delicious and prepared perfectly. The ambiance was just right and the noise level low, enabling everyone to hear each other.


We had the two specials of the day. Our food was absolutely delicious. Loved our experience here!


Quaint n elegant Italian restaurant. Chef quality foods n great selection of wine choice. Although, not required(?), a reservation is a good idea. Welcoming hostess n wait staff. I’ve come to dine n celebrate my birthday, for the last 5 years. It’s become my tradition now. Although, casual(?) dress dining, I prefer to show my respect, with business casual attire. Authentic cuisine, wines, desserts, and after dinner drinks, are welcoming to my palate. Quality for the price, is quite advantageous! I recommend this restaurant for any personal or professional occasions.

Kesh thanks you too

Very popular with an older crowd..very traditional fare of Italian cuisine


We had a wonderful dining experience at El Fresco. The mussels as an appetizer were the best I have ever had...could not get enough of that broth. My daughter and I both ordered pasta and were very happy with the generous portions that we could have another meal. We will definitely be going back.


We ate there last night. Everything was great from the wine to the entrees, Irish Coffee and dessert.


Food was delicious! Atmosphere was very nice. Will definitely be back

We ordered to go and LOVED our food. The calamari was so crispy and the spicy marinara was perfect. The chicken parmigiana was delicious. I prefer a sweeter sauce when I have Italian food, so I usually make it at home instead of going out but we found ourselves in the area hungry for pasta….we will definitely be back and will dine in for the full experience next time!
