    Google Maps is incorrect-located on top of the ice cream shop in HHV, across from rhe Great Lawn. Food isn't terrible, service not good, was offered only one drink-no second round, needed to ask for parmesan cheese, salt, pepper. Not a staffing issue, appears to just not care-wouldn't recommend

    Good service, bad wine selection for a Wine Spectator 'wines of excellence' award winner, but that was from several years ago, and no longer impressive. Overpriced and under-delivered with a small selection and average quality at best. Definitely a tourist trap destination, but again, service was the only bright spot.

    While vacationing in Honolulu, our party of four had a great dinner at Fresca. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed the food, especially the corn chowder! Service was friendly and efficient. We enjoyed the open air ambiance, with our table right at a large open window.

    Seated overlooking the Pacific as well as the Luau hosted by the Hilton. Our server was great and had a good sense of humor. Appetizers and the meal were delivered prompt, warm, and delicious. The food quality, freshness, and flavors were great. Couldn’t of asked for a better experience .

    We had an incredible dinner at Fresco tonight. We have been in Hawaii (Big Island and Oahu) for almost a week, and this was by far our best experience. Family of four, we had a friendly busboy, a terrific waitress, and really timely service. Food was great, service was exactly when we needed it, and this was the perfect last meal for our week in Hawaii. Thank you.

    Our entrees, particularly the spaghetti bolognese, was salty beyond belief. The service and ambiance of this restaurant are great, but the cook has got to go… as I said above, service is spot on. Better food is a short walk toward Diamond Head, where there are plenty of choices for better (and more economical) food can be had.

    The venue is great depending on where you sit in the restaurant. The window seats are lovely looking out onto the ocean Side where you can see the lagoon and sunset and lots of green. Preparation’s were good but not excellent. The seafood pasta didn’t have a lot of flavor. The chicken Parmesan it was good but was not chicken cutlets or pounded chicken but a chicken breast so different preparation but it was moist and tasty. The panzanita Salad head hot house tomatoes or what appeared and tasted like hot house tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, too much vinegar and only two thin Crostini— it was deconstructed not the typical bread salad preparation. They were out of the prime rib the night we went which was what we were planning on having. The portions were very good. For the price point I was looking for some thing a little more distinctive however the overall experience was very good and the food is good it’s just not exceptional

    We went to Fresco to celebrate our sons 4th birthday! The food and service was absolutely amazing. We ordered the bruschetta that did not disappoint, Cesar salad to share, cabonara, special- spaghetti meatballs (by far the best we had!) and shrimp pasta!! For dessert we had crème brûlée that hit the spot! The outdoor seating was nice and relaxing. There’s cool breeze and fresh air. Our server Brook took excellent care of us! We highly recommend Fresco and server Brook! We will be back soon!!

    The wait staff has been the most memorable part of the experience more than the food. They did their best to accommodate our table with limited vegetarian options. The food was alright, not much to rave about on the pricing. Definitely a place to consider going to if you don't feel up to go outside of the village and have no strong preference of food craving.

    Fine in a pinch, but pretty bad compared with your typical Olive Garden. The grilled shrimp I ordered on top of my penne were horribly chewy. Will not be returning
