Husband and I had lunch there. We both ordered the eggplant parm, and we had the shrimp, sausage and asparagus appetizer. The appetizer was bright and flavorful. The entrees exceeded expectations. Maurizio was our wonderful server. We will definitely return.

No idea. I am not a diabetic and have no food allergies other than macadamia nuts. I agree that you should contact the restaurant for such information.

Al Fresco Restaurant lets you feast on a bountiful array of Italian specialties. The outstanding menu, featuring pasta, chicken, veal and seafood, highlights a spectrum of lavish Italian specialties that are sure to please discriminating palates. Al Fresco Restaurant was planned with the summer in mind. An outdoor patio with a warm breeze and cold drinks are a perfect combination.
