                                                  We went for my daughters birthday dinner while on vacation. Food and service was great! Will definitely come back next time we are at Hilton Hawaiian Village.

                                                  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

                                                  Food was very bland and definitely not worth the price. Our only positive comment was our waitress was excellent. Won’t be returning to this restaurant. Has gone downhill since our last pre-Covid visit

                                                  We ate at Fresco Italian Restaurant four times during our two week vacation. This the fourth time was not quite as memorable as the other three. But, very good.

                                                  Price was reasonable, customer service was awesome and food was actually good. The only thing I didn’t like were the table next to us coughing their lungs of and not even covering their mouth.

                                                  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

Service was excellent, server gave us a run down of all the specials that weren't on the menu. food and appetizers were appealing.

God forbid she would inform us that there was others seating options other than "inside or outside". They do have a balcony like dining room overlooking the Hilton property and Great lawn. Too bad we were placed in the we sterile dining room. Shame on the "hostess" she must just love her job!!!

                                                  Location is nice, service was good, just the food was not great. Bread was not fresh, potatoes were oily and reheated, pasta was average. Not authentic Italian food, more commercial type and overpriced for what’s being served.

                                                  Service was fine and attentive. Complimentary bread was chewy like is was warmed up in a microwave not the oven. My Caesar salad was good however the croutons were very stale. For $14 it was just chopped romaine with stale croutons. I informed the bus boy so they can stop serving it until they get fresh croutons. The pasta was nice, cheesy and hot. Overall it was overpriced for a basic Italian restaurant.

                                                  I would have given this 5 stars had we not had to wait an hour for our reservation. The place was exceptionally busy on a holiday and it didn't seem like they knew how to manage it. They were extremely kind and were apologetic so it was hard to be upset but it was frustrating to wait so long with a reservation. Food was great, service (besides wait time) was great. Would go back on a less chaotic day.

                                                  Our waiter Sheldon was amazing. He made us feel welcome and I really enjoyed his service. The overall experience at the restaurant was excellent. The food was great and served piping hot and quickly.
