The menus is extensive, the food is expertly prepared, the sunset views are breathtaking and you are never rushed. Highly recommend this for any couple looking for that "special treat."

We have dined at Fresco's many times over the years and every time the food and the service are excellent. The crab cakes are a favorite, yes they are pricey however they are the best crab cakes you will ever eat. All lump crab and broiled not fried. Delicious! The pasta, veal and seafood are all very good and the portions are ample. A perfect evening is watching the sunset over the bay while having pre dinner cocktails at Jive (attached to Fresco's), great martini's and service, followed by a delicious dinner at Fresco's. When traveling if we are in the area we will stop in Ocean City for an evening only to have dinner at Fresco's. That says it all!!

My sister, my niece, and I went on a summer evening to Fresco's and had a great meal. Sat by a window with views of the bay and had reservations, which are recommended. The Caesar salad was great - lots of garlic and Parmesan with crisp romaine. Croutons could have been more flavorful. The escargot in pastry was tasty. Eggplant around angel hair pasta was wonderful, especially the sauce. Only complaint was that there was nothing else served with it for 21.99. It needed a little something else on the plate. The best dish was the veal and lobster! It was to die for with generous portions of tender veal and a good sized lobster tail in a wonderful sauce. It was served with potatoes, green beans, and carrots. Very tasty! The service was great, too. The only problem is rumor has it that one of the only true good dining experiences in OC is leaving, along with the great martini bar, Jive, at the end if the summer. Get there soon before they leave!

Fresco's is decent Italian on the bay. Lots of windows and brightness. Food is reasonably priced and pretty good.

The bay views are beautiful, and the food is delicious. Ordered the eggplant dish and must say the sauce was excellent. The bumbleberry pie is a must have too, delicious pie crust filled with plump assorted berries. Perfect place for a nice dinner out at the beach.
