Fresco Bistro Italiano - Ottawa  Food & Beverage
* Report this listing 

The story begins in 1991 when two friends and local bartenders named Dave decied to quit their bartedning jobs and open their own restaurant.  Their goal was to create a comfortable, non-pretentious, neighborhood bistro serving satisfying comfort food that also offered a late night venue for their friends and customers to hang out.  They made sure to surround themselves with fun, like-minded staff.  Among them was Som Bunchoeub, a Cambodian refugee, who is better known as chef 'Nee'.  Fortunately, Nee is still here preparing, stirring and simmering our delicious food after more then 20 years of loyal service.  A couple of years later a young dishwasher was hired named Brent Pattee.  Working his way from humble beginnnings, gaining experience in some of Ottawa's top kitchens, as well as one of his very own, Brent eventually foind his way  back to Fresco in 2010 as the head chef.  In 2001, one of the current owners, Jim Bickford, was hired to run food and bus tables.  Jim eventually took over the restaurant, aong with his younger brother Matt in 2005.  Jim and Matt grew up in Ottawa's 'Little Italy' and their passion for great food developed from their exposure to authentic, home-cooked Italian meals from their friends and neighbors.  SInce 2005 the brothers have been adding their own chapters to the Fresco sory.  Much like the Dave(s) before them they have come to build a solid and dedicated staff that continues to make Fresco's the same friendly, comfortable and quality neighborhood Italian inspired bistro we all know and love.  The bistro is open for lunch Mon-Fri 11:30am-2pm, brunch Sat-Sun from 10:30am-2:30pm and dinner from 5pm-10pm Sun-Wed and until 11pm Thurs-Sat.  Late night drinks and small plates in the Guest Room (2nd floor) available until 2am 7 days a week.
