Fodor's Review

This hot Italian restaurant serves dishes inspired by Italy and the Mediterranean. Start with some fresh Cape May salt oysters and follow them with linguini and seafood fra diavolo or veal saltimbocca. If you crave the osso buco, call ahead and reserve your dish—it goes quick. The enclosed porch is the favorite spot to sit and enjoy the wines by the bottle.

The Lions Den

We have been coming to Cape May for almost 10 years now and keep coming back to Fresco's. The winter dining is more pleasurable than the summer since the seating is very...tight. We also noticed that for some reason even though we have reservations we seemed to be rushed. Prior to the restaurant changing hands I liked the menu better with more traditional offerings however, the Osso Bucco is still delicious. We went back this summer and were disappointed,

my husband got a spicy sauce seafood boullabaise in a bread bowl and it was not described properly on the menu. There were limited seafood in a cajun based sauce and prior to serving to the customer the bread had already soaked up all the sauce. We have mixed feelings but we think we might give this place one more try.
