Driving from Toronto at about 9pm, snowing, hungry and looking for somewhere to eat, my wife checked on her cellphone and found frescos. Lucky for us. Food was reasonable, and the the coconut shrimp quite nice. Service was excellent and atmosphere very comfortable. It is not a fine dining restaurant, so if that is what you are looking for, this...

I love Fresco's! It's one of my favourite restaurants in St. Catharines and so I try to dine here whenever I am in town. The ambiance is enjoyable, with it's Mediterranean decor and lively music playing (usually with a Latin beat). We always get great service and the food never disappoints. This last time, my fiance and I went for... More

Had dinner with a friend here Tuesday night. Greeted nicely and taken to a booth. Was told about the pasta special that was featured and some local wines. We didn't even open the menus. We both had the $10 pasta special. You can add items to it also for an extra charge. It came with salad and bread. They were... More

The restaurant accommodated a same day request to serve of party of 35+- so good on them. It seemed like everyone liked their meals once they arrived. A decent selection of salads, sandwiches, burgers and pasta. My pasta with sausage was 8/10. Would try again.

Our first time visiting this place. Visiting a friend who lived nearby but it was the first visit for her too. We should have made a reservation as it was Saturday night, but decided to wait the 20 minutes for a table. Got seated faster than promised and were attended to immediately. One in the party asked for a slightly... More

Treated my friend to lunch for her birthday and they made it very special. We had a delicious lunch and shared a few items. Steak tacos, fresco's salad and calamari. We also had a nice chardonnay that was on the menu for that day. Service and food was on point. To top it all off the manager treated my friend... More

Visited fresco's for dinner with friends sunday night. We were warmly greeted and seated. It was very busy and our service was fantastic and friendly. We had a bottle of chardonnay that was on feature and shared quite a few plates that were recommended to us by the owner. Chili lime calamari, greek fries, apple kale salad, asiago and chicken...

Love the food there, always great and the portion sizes are always filling! The only issue that I keep facing is when I'm there is the service tends to be always slow. They need to work on the speed of there service especially when some guests are on lunch break. Other than that, I would highly recommend it

I love the crab Ragoon? Here. 4 large with a spicy sauce. A meal on their own. Also tried the ravioli with chicken and mushrooms in a mushroom cream sauce and it was fantastic. Service was on point: attentive and friendly.
