This is our 2nd anniversary. And we love this place. Ronnie is always a pleasure to talk to. And food was great. It's like being in Italy. Food is fresh and not pre-made. We love it.
Went here for my wife's birthday! Had a wonderful and romantic evening. Will say that at the beginning the water cup is always filled but as the dinner came to a close it's almost if they had stopped filling the water cup. Other then this we had a wonderful time.
Tables very close together to the point of hearing each other's conversations and being elbow to elbow, well almost. Delicious food. Expected a white 'cream' sauce, but it was more a broth.
Great food & service! Comfortable local restaurant!
Everything overall was perfect from the friendly atmosphere to the service and food
Our 2nd visit and we'll definitely be back. The food is great, and everyone is made to feel like family.
A longtime Virginia Peninsula favorite, Al Fresco once again delivered the goods. We had an early reservation for pre-theatre drinks and dinner. Apparently, everyone else had the same idea -- the place was packed, but the service was friendly and attentive. Very good salmon salad entree, per my wife, and I had an excellent Veal Picatta. We'll be back for sure!
ALWAYS enjoy having dinner or lunch here. Lovely wine and Lasagna was yummy.
Al Fresco never disappoints. On this night they were busy. Every patron appeared to be enjoying their meals and themselves. You would not know the pandemic was still ongoing. Getting back to normal.
We had a wonderful meal at Al Fresco last Friday night. The service was excellent - the food was delicious and the drinks were very good too. We had a bigger group and everyone enjoyed their dinner - the chicken parm and all pastas were the big winners of the night.
We love Al Fresco and will definitely be back.
Came to the area for a quick getaway and found this place on OT with great reviews. Food was great and I am still thinking about that chicken parm. We got stuck in the back room with two birthday parties so not exactly the quiet dinner we had hoped for. Service was great as everyone helps out. We will definitely return when in the area again.
We celebrated our 35th anniversary at A Fresco last night!
Our server Arturo was wonderful and the food was perfect!
Nice nice evening !!
Used my open table rewards without any issue too!
Thank you Al Fresco for a wonderful evening !💕
Al Fresco is the best Italian food around. We started with a penne vodka with peas, onions and sundried tomatoes! With our great wine it was a foodie experience!! The veal was tender and with a great sauce. The chocolate layer cake recommended by our excellent server topped off a perfect meal!
Always a great experience! I enjoyed the Rock Fish special, which was amazing. My wife enjoyed the chicken parmigiana, which was fantastic! Dinner at Al Frescos is a Great way to end the work week!
Best classy restaurant in Newport News.
Great food and excellent service. Friendly & attentive. The wild mushroom ravioli was delicious. Enjoyed the red wine by the glass. Will make a return visit in the future. Definitely recommend.
Visiting Newport News for CNU family weekend with Reservations for 7- very accommodating. Food was fantastic! Service was excellent! We had to be back on campus for an event and our food was delivered quickly!! We will definitely be visiting there again!
Great local Italian restaurant with a great wine list and reasonable prices. A favorite "destination dining" spot
Veal piccata was very good and service was excellent. Bread was good too.
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.
Food and service were outstanding! Would recommennd!
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.
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 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.
Excellent food and service every time!
Good service and great meals
Brianna was an outstanding server. Attentive, efficient, graceful but most of all friendly and made us feel warmly welcomed. We just relocated from Austin and found our new, local favorite Italian (eye-talian" in Texas) restaurant!
Fine food that compares with anywhere. We started with a rigatoni vodka adding sun dried tomatoes and peas. A fantastic appetizer for us. The veal piccata is ample and tender with a great lemon sauce. Service is always on!!
I booked as I know this place and love it and was meeting a friend for dinner who was working in the area. Never disappoints!
Was a great nite and a great visit - worth the drive.. All in the restaurant seemed to be enjoying themselves..
Service was great! My dish was just ok. I liked my shrimp but nothing special. It could have used more sauce. Same with my daughters entree.
10/10 recommendation!! Everyone is very friendly! They went above and beyond!
Elaine and I were greeted with a smile as we entered. Ronnie remembered us from a previous visit.
We were shown our table. Breanna was our waitress, and she was totally marvelous.
The food was so delicious. The best lasagna I have ever had. My wife had ravioli with lobster sauce and shrimp. Wonderful!
A great experience! Al Fresco will be our go to Italian Restaurant
Been coming here for years and absolutely love it!
Wonderful, from beginning to end!
