Italian
Constructed in 1728 and beautifully restored, this quaint Hudson Valley farmhouse is family owned and operated. Located just 30 minutes from Manhattan and moments from Bergen County and Westchester, this historic Rockland County restaurant is home to freshly prepared Italian fare. The space boasts six intimate candlelit dining areas as well as serene seasonal outdoor dining. The Sage, Savory, Sassafras and Saffron Rooms are all unique in their own way. The antique stone Wine Cellar is perfect for a romantic dining experience near one of our fireplaces. Il Fresco's menu is all prepared fresh when ordered. The wine list features Italian and American selections carefully selected to reflect the wide range of flavors offered from its kitchen. The Sorrel Bar is a festive dining space where you can get a firsthand look at our bartenders preparing our 10 ounce martinis. The restaurant is multi leveled, so if there are issues with stairs please let us know in advance.

We loved the seating in the lower level. The stone walls, beams and fireplace were gave a lovely atmosphere. The food and service were excellent. Excellent place for a special occasion or romantic dinner.

This was a birthday dinner for my husband. We had eaten here last summer outside and loved the vibe and toured the indoor eating area and said we had to come back for a cozy dinner in winter. This place has so much history and they've done a great job of retaining that in all both in the building and in the lovely description of the history within the menu. We sat in the room with the bar so it was lively and energetic and good for me because the other rooms had several stairs to get to them which I wouldn't be able to do. The service was wonderful and our food came out hot and delicious. One had the rigatoni with the bolongaise sauce while the other had pasta with the pomodoro sauce. I had the veal saltiboca which was very good. We decided to go home for dessert and presents but they actually brought out a lovely scoop of gelato with whipped cream on a pretty plate with Happy Birthday written in chocolate sauce and 3 spoons. The waiter sang to my husband while my daughter and I, and the whole restaurant joined in. A lovely evening and a beautiful place.

2nd time eating here in 2 weeks. Food was very good but on both occasions, two different waiters forgot several items we ordered. Not sure what the issue is but seems to be a consistent problem.

Frank and his family and great staff never fail to deliver on delicious food, outstanding service and unbeatable ambience making you feel like home. The Veal Chop Mario, delicious fried calamari and ginormous Jolly Rancher Martini are my go-to favorites. But whenever it is on the menu, I will kill for the elusive Osso Bucco. Desserts are off the chain, espresso is buono crema and wine list top-notch. Kudos on the Coribante, a delicious and very reasonable wine. We enjoyed a cousins night out this past Sunday and had the pleasure of Frank wait on us. We love it here as does the whole Daleo family.

My husband and I had a wonderful evening. We sat downstairs next to the fireplace and it was so nice. The waiter was so attentive and the food was delicious! I will recommend Il Fresco again and again....but it seems I don't have to...very crowded; but in a good way. The cozy feel makes this restaurant very special.

It was my first time here and I had a wonderful experience!!! We sat down stairs in the basement next to the fire place and I am convinced we had the best table in house! Can not wait to come back again!

Been going here for NYE the past several years although last year had to miss because I was ill. Fortunately not this year and dinner was superb as was the service. Hopefully we will be going here more often, not just on NYE!

We always enjoyed Il Fresco. My wife and daughter enjoyed their entree’s. I ordered the lamb chops and was a bit disappointed. The chops were tasteless though it was seasoned with rosemary and the meat was tough. I usually order the country chicken which would have been the better choice.

Everything was excellent except for the sirloin steak which was very fatty leaving a small portion to eat. I indicated that it was a special birthday on my reservation and the
Waiter presented my boyfriend a complimentary dessert with a candle. The cosmos was one of the best I’ve had. This is my favorite restaurant for special occasions.

We arrived for our reservation at 3 PM on a chilly Sunday afternoon and were immediately ushered into the warmth of a gas-lit fireplace. The cozy ambience of this historic venue is delightful.
Our reception and wait service was attentive.
We enjoyed the menu, wine list and special cocktails.
IL Fresco is a must do and we will again, ENJOY!

It was a quiet Tuesday for lunch. Restaurant was not very busy, so it might not be a good characterization for other days and times. However, the service was terrific and the food was delicious!
