When we inquired we were told it was Pier House's menu with a few Fresco's dishes added. If you go looking for your favorites (3 sauces for calameri, PH Balance,fried lobster tail, crab cake, lamb chops,sea bass) you will be disappointed...as were we. The calameri...More

Our favorite place to eat in Cape May for many years. On our last visit we find that they changed management and the menu. Went from fine dinning to poor dinner food. Food was bland and unappealing. Could have gotten better food on the boardwalk....More

Frescos is under new management, and it's a decided improvement. The new Frescos is Mediterranean, and the chef has fresh new ideas. My Caesar salad was the best on the planet, and my chicken pasta main course had just the right amount of spice in...More

Frescos has a large menu with both seafood and meat options. The service was excellent and they split our shared salad order in the kitchen, which was nice. The watermelon with feta salad was very good and easily large enough for two to share. Both...More

The dining room is relaxed enough for the beach yet elegant enough to be a break from beachy. The bronzino was perfectly presented; I appreciated being given the choice of having the head and tail removed-or not. My husband enjoyed his pork dish, though he...More

This is the same concept of the Pier House with some variations. The portions are large and the food delicious - try the 3 course dinner and show menu.

Ordered bolognese because the menu indicated the ingredients which is the way I like it. It was very greasy. My husband ordered fish and it was not cooked. If your going to be expensive then the quality should match the price!

In the heart of the Historic District, Frescos occupies an 1880 Victorian cottage. On the candlelit veranda, or in the coolness of the Mediteranean inspired dining rooms, you imagine yourself at a small trattoria in Tuscany, or sampling the finest of local seafood at a Mediterranean cafe. From the seafood and homemade pastas of the South to the elegant sauces, meats, and veal of the North, Frescos is a culinary adventure tour of Italy. Frescos' award-winning young Chef Joseph Badger takes as his palette the incredible variety of fresh local seafood, and bountiful local produce, bringing a richness and creativity to the menu-- a dazzling display of shrimp, lobster, seafoods and pastas, and desserts that make guests exclaim with delight. One of ZAGAT'S "Top Italian Restaurants in America," and Voted "Best Italian Restaurant in Southern New Jersey 2012," by NJ Monthly.
