“Great little restaurant with good variety”

Great big salads, delicious pizza that wasn't too greasy, and yummy burgers. Everyone at the table was happy with their selection. Desserts looked amazing but we were too full.

“Perfect venue for large groom's reception associated with destination wedding weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

I worked remotely from MN to plan a groom's reception for 90. Matt is a pro and no email, text or phone request went unattended. The indoor/outdoor venue provided our guests with the opportunity to become acquainted the evening before the wedding. A fantastic wine and beer selection, passed apps, and delicious dinner buffet received rave reviews.

My son, the groom couldn't have been happier and neither could our guests. Matt and his service oriented team made it look easy and made me look smart for hosting our event at Fresco.

“Perfect setting for a destination wedding groom's reception”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

When searching months ago for a venue for a Friday night groom's reception for 90 in Solvang, I came across Fresco's website. Because we reside in MN, I had nothing more to go on than Fresco's website and reviews...until I made contact with Matt. Then I knew our reception would be in the best of hands. No online or phone detail was overlooked. Our guests loved the indoor/outdoor venue which provided the perfect opportunity to mingle and make new friends in town for the wedding. Terrific wine and beer selections coupled with delicious apps and a main course buffet all offered by an outstanding, pro-active staff. Days later, I'm still getting rave reviews. Thanks, Matt. Our son, the groom, had a memorable evening and our extended family and friends think we worked hard to make it all happen. I'll never tell them it was all you and your amazing staff!!

“A Very Enjoyable Evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

The restaurant was clean and quiet despite being busy. It was casual and artfully decorated. The service staff was friendly and professional. They were helpful and attended to our needs very well without hovering. They were efficient and treated all customers with respect. The food was hot and tasty. It was fresh, well prepared and well presented. The meals were priced fairly and we felt that the whole experience was excellent. We will be back.
