Located in a shopping center with Italian ambiance for décor inside and out.....we chose to eat inside due to winds but tables were available with heaters. Good range of well prepared dishes. Three of us enjoyed our choices for the meals along with the wines.

Our Italian dinners were very good, but the salmon & fish were dried out. Stick with Italian food & you will be happy. The service was excellent & prices reasonable. We will return.

We eat at Fresco fairly frequently. Very seldom is there a wait. There is a large seating area and also food service at the bar. I've eaten a variety of menu items and all have been well prepared and the portions are more than adequate. Usually have a "Take Away". The service is always prompt and attentive and the restaurant... More

Expensive for the amount and quality of food you get! Beautiful restaurant, excellent service. Nice to have a local Italian spot close by, however only for a special occasion! May try the happy hour sometime!

Excellent on all levels from food to service and live music. Fabulous spread of Italian antipasti, salads, meat dishes and pastas. Nice custom omelet bar. Free-flowing champagne that they kept topped off. The jazz duo was great. The restaurant sent out a delicious complementary dessert for my Mother's birthday.

Had a delicious meal with the family this week. Food was excellent, had the shrimp with risotto meal for around $18. Sampled some wine too which was great. For the price it would be excellent to have a salad included in addition to the bread. The lobster ravioli portion was too small - a bit shocked when it was served... More

As a Farmer, I am constantly trying new restaurants to see if they are worth approaching to sell my produce. Fresco has a location not far from me so I thought I'd try their Bonsall location. Nice interior for a shopping center location. Website mentioned a German Pilsner they no longer carry, shux. Regardless, the staff were extremely polite and... More

We hadn't been to Fresco Grill in a while and just decided to go on the spur of the moment. We had an excellent salad, nice bottle of wine and I had the mushroom ravioli. It was the best. The waiter was cordial and efficient. We had a wonderful experience.
