  • “The main idea behind Fresco's is that diners choose their own combination of ingredients to make a customized pasta dish choosing:

    • Noodles

    • Sauces

    • Meats

    • Veggies

  • Gooderum does the same thing with big chopped salads. Like to have some preselected combos for inspiration? Fresco's menu also includes pancetta mac 'n' cheese, classic bolognese, polpetta (meatballs in roasted red pepper sauce), and habanero shrimp pasta, among others.”
