great food and good prices. If you like Italian food you have to go here. Pastas and seafood are great. Make sure they are open I think they close early afternoon 3 and reopen at 5, just call

Went to Al Fresco for a graduation dinner. All four of us had very good meals, seafood pasta and other standard Italian fare. It's a very pretty restaurant and the staff was attentive. All is all, an enjoyable celebratory dinner.

Al Fresco's is the Best Italian restaurant in Newport News, Va. We go there often and have brought friends who have been back themselves. Every dish has been absolutely mouthwatering I haven't had anything I didn't like. I've been disappointed when I go elsewhere to order one of my favorite dishes that I like at Al Fresco's. Trust me, you'll... More

It wasn't the normal Irish fare for St. Paddy's Day but I was in more of an Italian frame of mind. All Fresco is always a sure bet for a lovely evening and a great meal. I decided to try something different and ordered the salmon piccata. I'm so glad I did. It was absolute perfection. Do yourself a flavor.

I had been a few times and the service & food were excellent. However, this time was a very different experience! I had a groupon and I feel that because of this we were treated the way we were. We were told what we could or could not order and when we said that we would happily pay the difference,... More

I have reviewed this restaurant before, but my recent experience there was so bad, I felt it needed a review. We decided to go to this neighborhood place for Valentine's Day. Since they were booked, we chose to go the day before. We made reservations through Open Table. We arrived just before the reserved time. They didn't have our reservation,... More

Had dinner before heading to Johnny Mathis concert. Staff was courteous, attentive and prepared to get us out so not to be late! Food was excellent. I had the Salmon Fra Diavalo special and it was fantastic. Girl friend had a veal dish that was also terrific. Will go back before another Ferguson Center concert!!

We can only assume, based on the number of well-dressed elderly couples, that this used to be a prime restaurant. Now...not so much. The TA description said it was "French, Italian". The only thing French on the menu was wine. Our waitress was pleasant, but not great. She never discussed the specials with us, so it's a good thing we... More

Very pleasant Italian restaurant. Our server was most efficient and helpful. Had the prawn and aubergine starters, the sauce with the prawns was particularly good. All the mains ,two veal dishes and linguini with seafood were good. The lobster ravioli was extremely good. All mains come with a side salad the meat dishes with pasta and they served focaccia bread.... More

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.
