I was extremely disappointed in the last experience.. When restaurant is busy food quality diminishes. That was true for 3 out of the 5 dinners served. In addition woman out front was extremely rude to one member of our party because she was late. She...insisted to make a nasty comment to her when she arrived. Beware of bi-polar hostess and best to eat in when they aren't too busy.More

We were in Lowell, MA and were visiting some of the museums there. We were hungry and wanted to grab a bite to eat. Unfortunately everything seemed to be closed. We then checked Yelp and looked for some other dining options and Bpt where we...glad to find this place. The reviews were really good and when we checked their menu the options looked great. I am so glad we decided to come here for lunch. For starters we had a wonderful antipasto appetizer which consisted of salad, cheese, Italian meats, hot peppers, artichoke, mushroom and more. For my entree I had the mixed grill and my girlfriend had a chicken pasta dish which she said was delicious. My mixed grill plate was out of this world. It had steak tips, sweet sausage, and chicken breast all served with sautéed veggies and a plate of French fries. The portion was quite generous and so flavorful. The meats had some barbecue sauce which made it even better. To end our meal we had the Creme Brûlée which was a perfect way to end our wonderful meal. The service was quick and attentive. We felt very comfortable at this place and would definitely come back if in the area.More

We got takeout a couple of nights ago as we had heard so many good things about Al Fresca. We were not disappointed. I got the veal piccata and my husband got the Seafood La Bella (gnocchi with shrimp, scallops, and lobster). Both meals were...very good and we both had food leftover as the plates were so big. Plan ahead though as when I called to place the order (mid-week night) I was told that it would be an hour and a half wait time for our order to be ready.More

The seafood alfredo was simply perfect. One of the greatest dinners of my life. Visiting from New Mexico and came here one night. Pasta is awesome, mussels and calamari were perfect. Shrimp and scallops were huge. Couldn't finish my plate. The wait staff were very...helpful, kind and friendly. My son's lobster ravioli was unbelievable and he is picky. Loved it. The chef clearly loves his food and his passion shines. The sauce was over the top. By the way. I'm 57 so top five meal has a lot of competition and is richly deserved.More

The regular menu, the specials, it's all superb! The sauces are light and don't overpower the dish. The meats, the seafood, the pasta, the veggies, all fresh and perfectly cooked. Mark and Erica, the owners, are the most beautiful people and their staff reflects that...in caring for the customers. Always wonderfully pleased, never disappointed. Can we give a 9 or 10 instead of the max 5?More

We ordered a "to go" dinner for the family. The ordering process was easy and the food was ready in 40 minutes. The food was OUTSTANDING!! We had several different entrees and two appetizers. Each dish was OVER THE TOP DELICIOUS!! We look forward to...being about to sit in the dining room at this restaurant. We will definetely frequent it when this Covid stuff is over!More

Went there for a couples date on a Saturday night. We DID have to make RESERVATIONS. Due to limited seating it's highly suggested. APPS: LAMB LOLLIPOPS were soooooooo good! I could have eaten 5 more plates. EGGPLANT ROLATONI (or something like that) Super good! DINNER:...I got the Gnocci w the seafood. My date got just the Gnocci. They were both really good. Mine was not fishy at all. However it was salty. I was hoping more for a lighter sauce and something more Fra Diablo. It was still good. My friends got A chicken w eggplant dish over angel hair. Her date got something w chicken asparagus lobster over angel hair. I think the Florentine? Either way it was all delicious! My boyfriend's mother comes here every Thursday w her friends. I'd def go back!More

With the pandemic it’s really hard to find a good meal, in a safe and attractive environment. I guess restaurants have no choice but to use parking lots and sidewalks for outdoor seating- so be it. We had an awesome meal: martinis, hot fresh bread...with great dipping sauce, house salad with homemade blue cheese dressing, calamari app special, veal scallopini, the chicken special, and of course tiramisu. Everything was fresh, hot (or cold) as required, excellent sauces and dips- well done 👍 we will return for sure!More

Traveled to Tyngsboro for a Jiu Jitsu tournament and selected this restaurant based on the TripAdvisor reviews. The veal carbonara was very flavorful with a nice amount of veal medallions. The shrimp francese had large succulent shrimp that was like eating miniature lobster tails. Didn’t...try the desserts but checked then out in a display case and they looked great. The service was exceptional.More

Al Fresca NEVER disappoints❤️ Dinning in person, take out or meals from the marketplace are always made to perfection. Worth the trip from 40 miles away for sure. If you haven’t been you are truly missing out on a fabulous meal.

A really good local Italian Resaurant! I had the Chicken and Sausage Al Forno, which was excellent. The Bread was fresh and tasty. If I lived near this place, I would gain weight like crazy!
