Had a wonderful dinner at Fresco tonight! I was pleasantly surprised how good it was! Perfect, no. But very good. We got there early and the pace is slow but this is a place to relax and enjoy. Bread was good but burned on top. We could smell it before we received it! Had the braised short rib sliders. So good! Meat was fork tender. Pork tenderloin was fantastic! Butternut squash tortelachi (spelling??) were fantastic and the basil cream sauce was a religious experience!!!! Perfect Moscow mules and excellent service by Greg (Craig?) completed the experience.

Food was very good, atmosphere was nice, although a bit noisy, server was very attentive.
Good and ok are as follows:
We had the Caesar salad (which is enough to share and they'll split it for you). But it was over dressed (as in, oops I tipped the bottle too much!). Our water glasses were kept full (very important)! Service was very attentive. I'm thinking our waiter might have been new. He didn't know much about the preparation. But, he readily went to ask and came back with the answers. He also wasn't knowledgeable about the wines.**
The Veal Parmigiana was very good as was the Chicken Piccata and Chicken Milanese. The bread was Fabulous! We will definitely return!

** Management suggestion:
Have your wait staff learn the menu; (know how dishes are prepared (cream, oil, butter, fried, baked, etc.).
Have the server suggest a particular wine to compliment the entrees. You have a very nice wine selection. You should promote it!

Nice wine bar and nice menu. Restaurant is a bit crowded and noisy. Have eaten there a couple of times and the is always something prepared wrong.

Not enough wait staff on. We had to ask for second drinks and to bring bread to table. We had a party of 10 so it was a little disappointing. We will go back to Cranston and W Warwick locations. Food was good though.

Fresco is my go to for fine dining at a reasonable price. The atmosphere is quaint, and the food is delectable. I quite enjoy the risotto with peas and grilled chicken! Yum! Everything on the menu is delicious and freshly made. The bread dipping sauce is a must have as well!!!!
