I really like Fresco and can highly recommend the Spicy Chicken Sandwich, Spaghetti, Southwest Quesadillas, Fresco Filet and, of course, the delicious pizza.

The delivery wait is generally about 45 minutes & they charge a $3 delivery fee. I've ordered dozens of times & have never had a problem. The food is always hot & delicious.

I'd have given 5 stars, but I have to agree with the above reviewer who felt the salads were lacking. I've never had a fresco salad that I've enjoyed. Ever. That's saying something since I order salad everywhere I go & can think of no other restaurant where I actively refuse to do so.

But if hot food is what you are looking for, Fresco is the place for you!!

I was a little skeeved out by the stink bug story above- might need a few days to get over that one.

Too expensive!!! My husband and I are on an extremely tight budget. Last night, we decided to treat ourselves..... sorry we did now. We ordered and picked it up, the order was $30 +. The caesar salad was SO small for the amount we paid for it and it didn't contain any chicken. My Panini was OK. My husbands burger was OK. The motzarella sticks were good, but you get 5 motzarella sticks for $5! I will not order from there again. It was just too expensive for the amount and quality of the food.

I had to stop ordering salads from Fresco when my office ordered because of the perpetually slimy lettuce in them - I even tried getting romaine instead of spring mix and would still run into foul, rotten produce. Same goes for slimy, rotten sprouts in the crab salad. No matter how good a dressing is, slimy lettuce is inedible. That's an inventory management problem, not an isolated event. Their pizza is overpriced, underflavored, and often overcooked. Their waitstaff is rude and irritating. I've had to do a bit of business with them for my office and they are much slower than average compared to other area restaurants. Aside from the satisfactory sandwiches, it's a pathetic excuse for a pizza place.

Also - it's worth saying that any manager who is publicly willing to be that catty and immature as the one who responded to "Bugs" on 5/27/09 (On the 1st or 2nd Google result for "Fresco", no less!) has got to be a joke. Caps lock? Really? Mocking people for getting their nails done? Really?

The pizza and salads(ahi tuna) are delicious and the atmosphere is typically busy.The service is quick and friendly. Might be considered expensive but it's quality food.

This restaurant came highly recommended mostly because of a lack of decent eateries in this part of Delaware County. However, my family and I found it to be overpriced (ESPECIALLY the pizzas for what you get) and mediocre. The tables are much too close together and it is extra loud so the atmosphere is lousy too. Ultimately I can not recommend this restaurant and would prefer to eat McDonald's than here again.

During a recent meeting at work we ordered food from Fresco. The pizza was wonderful. We also ordered several salads and the ingredients were fresh and the dressings were very good,

I saw a sting bug on the desert counter when I was ordering my food and showed it to one of the girls who work there and she had one of the waiters to kill it. I didn't make a big deal out of it because I figured it wasn't on the food.

I picked up my food and was going to have the fries while driving.
There was a sting bug in my food...which fell on my lap, and for someone like me who hates bugs it was a horrible experience.

I called them to tell them about this and the manager told me that it could come from anywhere...because they are everywhere! When I told her that when I saw it in my food, I was driving. She thought it was funny and laughed on the phone.

I threw away my food and kind of feel nauseous right now when I think about a BUG IN MY FOOD. Great experience!

"It could come from everywhere" approach was totally wrong and I expected a proper apology at least. I guess not everyone is good at customer service.

To The Owner: When I saw another STINK bug on the counter while ordering my food, I didn't make a big deal about it at all. Please ask your staff. I quietly showed it to the cashier, and we even had a small talk about how they are everywhere and how we hate them.
When I called you, all I needed was a proper apology. I really didn't need you to laugh at me on the phone and take the "they are everywhere" approach. I know they are everywhere. I was shaking when I called you, I almost had an accident because of the bug...it was in my food? what is so funny about it? Instead of treating me like a customer, you decided to be rude. I have been in your restaurant multiple times; I brought my customers to your restaurant. I used to like you and your restaurant. I was expecting a different response from you.
So instead of fixing my typo, please help yourself and learn how to take criticism.
You are handling this poorly.
Again, all I needed was a proper apology!
Thanks,

Business Response:

UNFAIR, UNREASONABLE YOU CAME IN ORDERED YOUR FOOD AND THEN HAD YOUR NAILS DONE. 45 MINUTES LATER YOU PICK UP YOUR ORDER. MY STAFF MADE YOUR ORDER, CHECKED IT SEALED THE CONTAINER WITH TAPE, THEN PLACED IT IN OUR WARMER, WHICH IS KEPT AT 200 DEGREES, UNTILL THE FOOD IS PICKED UP. BY THE WAY, YOU MEAN "STINK BUG".... THE BUG WOULD HAVE DIED IN A 200 DEGREE OVEN. I RETURNED YOUR PHONE CALL BECAUSE IM ALL ABOUT SERVICE, QUALITY AND CLEANLINESS... IM IN THERE EVERY DAY, FREQUENTLY DOING THE CLEANING MYSELF.... YOU OPENED THE CONTAINER IN YOUR CAR AND ATE FOR AN INDEFINITE AMOUNT OF TIME..... THE STINK BUG MOST LIKELY CRAWLED INTO THE CONTAINER. IM SORRY YOU WERE STARTLED AND RUINED YOUR NAILS.YOU EVEN WENT SO FAR TO SAY THE STINK BUG COULD HAVE COME FROM ANYWHERE. I'M WILLING TO TAKE ALL OF THE RESPONSIBILITY, IF MY STAFF MAKES A MISTAKE... I HAVE NO CONTROL OF ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS OUTSIDE MY STORE. STINK BUGS ARE EVERYWHERE. I WORK HARD TO MAINTAIN QUALITY AND CLEANLINESS. AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO!!! DESPITE MELICIOUS FEEDBACK. I WELCOME ANYONE IN MY KITCHEN AT ANY TIME.

This is a great little restaurant in Newtown Square, PA. They have a great variety on the menu, including a delicious grilled tuna salad, they have great pizza and lots of Italian dishes. It is a byob. I did not find it to be overly welcoming for kids, although they have high chairs, I just have not seen many kids in there. They are a little pricey- $17+ for a large pizza, but the salads are reasonable around $7 each - give it a try, service is good and the atomosphere is nice. Can't really see it from the road, have to know what you are looking for. They have not done much advertising and they probably should.
