First time there and we had a wonderful evening. Food, ambiance, service was all outstanding! Very nice menu with unique but familiar specialties. Lots of great choices. Highly recommend!
Small place which got crowded very quickly, after all it was a Saturday night. Our table was comfortable, but trying to walk to the restroom or to leave was challenging because the room was so crowded.
Wonderful staff and service...celebrating a birthday. Food was excellent
My husband’s birthday
Great spot for girls night out, date night or just a fantastic meal.
Great place and really good food.. GF options available. The staff was wonderful!
This wonderful restaurant is a find !
What fabulous food, wonderful service, and beautiful atmosphere. Definitely coming back soon.
Loved every minute and every bite !
Second time here. We were very pleased. Great energy. Shared a Church St salad...we both ordered salmon special..delicious. Affagato for dessert topped off the meal. BYOB. Attentive service.
We like this restaurant a lot now that they don't blast disco music on saturdays. food is delicious, nice atmosphere, friendly service. Very happy and will recommend this restaurant to our friends
Service was great, food was very good. Will return.
Food was ok, waiter never introduced himself, was out front of the restaurant vaping while we were waiting for dessert menus's. No personality at all. Manager was very nice however but waiter should realize he works on tips
Excellent as always! The staff is awesome!
Always find Fresco very accommodating, somewhat upscale with reasonable prices and delicious food. Very good for large groups and celebrations
Everything was fantastic!! The food was incredible. They also surprised my daughter with a birthday song and sparkler. Made her SO happy! Wish we lived closer so we could go back all the time!!
Food was very good and service was excellent. It was BYOB which was ok, but the menu prices were a little high, but that could be attributed to the area they were in. We would reccomend as the food was very good.
Went for brunch with friends. Half ordered the avocado toast and half the chicken and waffles. Everyone was pleased with their dishes. I loved having an egg with the toast and one of our party said the chicken was awesome.
Great time, very accommodating since I was late for my reservation but due to parking...limited parking so Uber or Lyft there to have less hassle. Food was awesome. Our waiter was very nice and gave us his honest opinion on what to order from the menu and it didn’t disappoint...will go back there again
Staff was very attentive and accommodating. We can't wait for our next visit.
Beautiful restaurant and decor. Food was amazing and on point, absolutely delicious. Service was also impeccable!!!
First time here. Dined outside. Nice salad to start..I enjoyed tuna entree and partner loved bronzini..affagato wonderful dessert
My wife and I recently dined at Fresco Da Franco for the first time and could not have been more pleased with the service and food. My wife is pregnant and we asked a lot of questions about the menu/ingredients and the waitress, manager, and chef couldn’t have been more accommodating. My wife really wanted to try to pumpkin gnocchi but the sauce had ingredients that she couldn’t have, the chef immediately offered to alter the sauce and he made her a delicious meal that she very much enjoyed. The waitress was very nice and was completely on top of the service and entire dining experience. Every part of this meal was amazing from appetizer to dessert and we would recommend Fresco Da Franco to anyone looking for a delicious Italian meal in Montclair NJ.
We recently dined at Fresco da Franco to celebrate our friend's birthday. Everything was outstanding! The food, atmosphere and overall experience couldn't be beat. It was the perfect place for a birthday, especially since they brought out a sparkler with the cake, and played "Fireball" by Pitbull! So fun! Also, we had a minor situation that the owner handled with grace and the utmost customer service. We will definitely be back!! Run, don't walk, to Fresco da Franco!!
The hostess was extremely helpful helping my wife (back injury) with a big cushion so she could in comfort! The waiter was pleasant and prompt and the food was very good. Would definitely recommend this place to others!
Prepared well! Taste like Sunday dinners at Grandpa’s house! Servers attentive not bothersome! Modern art deco decor ! Zucchini flowers stuffed with lemon ricotta😍😍 Watermelon and arugula salad😍
We have eaten here on several occasions, and the food is always delicious, and the servers always attentive.
We shared the stuffed figs,which were enough for two to share.
They were perfectly ripe, and beautifully dressed.
I ordered a salmon filet stuffed with crabmeat, and served over risotto. It was beautifully seared, and the crabmeat stuffing was nicely seasoned and delicious.
The risotto was just as I like it, creamy , but al dente.
Love this place.
Great food, great service.....Have been at Fresco's often and will continue to do so!!
This was my first visit to Fresco Da Franco, but it won't be my last. The food was outstanding and the service was first rate. I would highly recommend the meatballs appetizer. They may be the best I've ever eaten! If there is a negative it is a little bit noisy inside, but everything else makes up for this. It is also BYO which is another big plus.
Amazing food and service. This is our go to place Never had a bad meal or service.
Food was delicious but the service was beyond outstanding. Forgot the young lady's name that took care of us but she was 10s across the board.
We were not expecting such a fine dining experience. Our server was gracious and accommodating. We hadn’t done any research and didn’t realize it was a byob but Justin informed us of a store across the street as well as their “delivery” service! Awesome.
our favorite place to seat outdoors and listen to Brazilian Jazz .... now on thursday's i believe ..
the food is one of the best i ever had ....specials are always awesome and so taste ... we love grandma
The restaurant was very good. Sitting outside was wonderful because there are large plants that make you feel you are not just sitting on a sidewalk. The food was very good, just a bit pricey. We will definitely go back.
It was a lovely restaurant. Staff friendly but not overly attentive. Food was delicious, I had the Branzino -excellent. Music was great end of night.
Only issue I had was they served my food 8 mins after the rest of my party. We had to call for service to ask for my dinner.
I would recommend a visit.
Loved it! The atmosphere and food were both on point!
I love the outdoor eating but I the street parking was very disturbing.
Service was good as was food which could use more salt. Entrees were priced about right but apps and desserts were over priced
I have been to Fresco many times and it is always consistently great! Such a lovely ambience, especially the outdoor seating area.
Went here for a friend’s 40th birthday. Food was ok, not awful, but definitely nothing special. Especially not for the ridiculously high prices. The waiter asked us if we wanted still or sparkling water, no option for regular tap water, and charged us for an overpriced bottle of water. One of my friends who is pregnant asked that her eggs be cooked well done, no yolk at all, came out runny. Another friend wanted her eggs cooked normally, and it came out hard. It was obvious they had mixed up the two orders. No big deal, they took it back and fixed it, but no apology from the staff. The rest of us had our food and then ended up having to wait while they fixed two of the orders. We ordered two desserts to share, desserts were delicious but portions were kind of small. A dessert on the house would have been nice since they made a mistake and since it was a birthday, which they knew because it was mentioned on the reservation! Overall, ok experience, would definitely try something else next time.
