Fresca skilfully combines all the celebrated traditions of Italian cuisine with a chic, contemporary setting that is perfect for either an intimate dinner or group celebration.The Fresca menu is truly versatile, and offers a range of dining options. Traditional Italian delicacies are served in many forms – from hand-tossed pizzas to fresh pasta and risotto. Bold, eclectic recipes also feature, such as salmon, cod, tiger prawns and mussels served with a tomato & basil sauce, scattered with garden peas and gnocchi. There are also vegetarian options and a children’s menu.An added Mediterranean twist is brought to Fresca with the addition of the tapas menu. Delicate dishes like homemade meatballs

Came here with a few friends for lunch last week. The food was so tasty. Authentic Italian food at its best. As it was lunchtime there was a two course meal option at great price. We were all pleased with our choices.

Used to love coming here but has now gone downhill. Poor waiter/waitresses without the knowledge or skills we were used to in this establishment. Heard shouting coming from kitchen. Food seemed rushed & overpriced. Will no longer visit.

My experience wasn't great and i have to say this wasn't the first time we had poor service. That said, food was good, service let's this restaurant down.
