Fresco Bistro Italiano
The pastel frescos that cover every available inch of wall space add to the hectic charm of this tiny bistro at the south end of Elgin Street. The front windows are removed in the summer to give it a patio feel that is topped off by flower boxes and wrought-iron railings. Thin-crust pizzas, a full wine list and friendly service make the restaurant appealing to a wide range of diners. The menu is strong on creativity, with a unique but distinctly Italian approach to all of its veal, chicken, seafood and vegetarian dishes.
My party went to Fresco's for new years eve. Waited 40 minutes to get our table(which was reserved) Dinner was scheduled for 9:30, we didn't recieve our main course to well after midnight. We ended up skipping our last 2 courses to leave at almost 1am, no discount for the ridiculous wait/or lost courses. Staff was obvously not prepared for number of reservations taken. When the co-owner was approached about the wait time, he relpied "this is a restaurant, you'll have to wait". Well, you won't be a restaurant for much longer with service like that Fresco's.
