Another excellent visit to Fresco, warmly welcomed by joint owner (front of house) and a young waitress, husband is the Italian chef. All three courses and wine excellent examples of the country and the restaurant. Parents first visit, and suitably impressed. Busy little restaurant for this time of year and being mid-week, but that reflects its popularity.

We were taking a friend for dinner as a birthday gift and wanted to go somewhere that he had not visited before, and out of the immediate Torquay area. We had not been to Fresco for some two years and remembered how good it was on the last visit. I, foolishly, left it quite late to book and so could... More

Beautifully cooked food, good wine and fantastic service each time we ate there. It was as if we were actually in Italy. We just wish we had a restuarant of this quality near us. We cannot recommend it enough.

Been here a few times now and is a first rate restaurant. Not the largest venue, but that only adds to its appeal - book in advance if you want to get in. The front of house is extremely knowledgeable and very extensive specials board. Quality of food and drink is really amazing. This time around I had the venison,... More

Three of us reserved a table for dinner at 7.45 on a Wednesday evening. One of us had eaten at Fresco before but it was a new experience for two of us, and it was a very pleasant one from start to finish. We were made to feel welcome straightaway and received very attentive service from the lead waitress and... More

This is becoming an annual ritual - a meal at Fresco before we set out on the arduous task of setting up the book and cd stall at the Teignmouth Jazz Festival. Everything about this restaurant is a joy to record. Always a warm welcome on arrival and sadness when we come to the farewells at the end of a... More

Returning to Fresco is never a disapointment. As usual the food was excellent and served by the ever cheerful Cherry and her young assistant. We always book in advance as the premises are small and intimate which could make for difficulties getting a table.

A very warm welcome at this lovely Italian. All the food is cooked to order and my Ravioli was very good and the special dessert delicious!

We visited here on a Saturday evening at 6pm. It is a fairly small place with about 10 tables so has a nice cosy atmosphere. We were welcomed in by the owner Cherry who made a fuss of our 3 young children, which put us at ease immediately. The food was excellent and I can highly recommend the sprats if... More

Booking is essential as there are a limited number of tables. Staff are very welcoming. We had a couple of specials and they were very tasty! The place has a very nice ambience and is very popular! Came for an anniversary celebration and will be back soon.
