About: Fresco, established in 2007, is a small, casual Italian restaurant that makes all of its food from scratch. As Tiko H., Fresco's chef said, "We're not a chain and we don't cook like one."

Review: This intimate Italian restaurant is a good go-to for a weekly date night. The food is fresh, delicious and well priced for the portion size. It is a hidden gem of Gainesville.
