On what is arguably one of Ottawa’s most popular dining strips, Fresco Bistro Italiano brings jazzed up Italian cuisine to the table. Their food — including their popular veal meatballs — is made fresh in-house, and served in a chic, cozy dining room. Another plus: they serve brunch complete with traditional breakfast items, sandwiches, pizzas, and pastas.
