Fresco literally means “fresh” in Italian. And that is one thing that is true of the salad bar available in this great little restaurant in Ambi mall. One of the biggest complaints I always have when ordering salads (in restaurants around Gurgaon) is that the salad leaves are usually pretty tired looking and not so fresh. But in this place, I couldn’t have asked for better salad when we decided to enjoy their buffet for lunch.
But, I am jumping all over the place here. Let me introduce this place first. The restaurant is called FresCo. It is located towards the backend of the Ambience mall food court (a little behind the McDonalds).
They have both A La Carte and Buffet menus, and I have enjoyed both, and liked them both. A friend of mine however would differ as she didn’t like the soup that they served her (but she is vegetarian).
The staff is very polite and is always watching out for you, and makes you feel very much at home. There are two seating areas, open and closed. The benefit of the closed area is that you don’t feel like you are in the middle of a mall with people passing by all the time.
They have a decent wine list as well, so you should be able to order good accompaniment to the largely Italian/Med cuisine that the place serves. We enjoyed their desserts as well when we tried the buffet. However, if you are really a dessert buff, then you may want to check out IndiJoe’s which is a couple of restaurants down (once we ate at FresCo’s and then walked to IndiJoe’s for dessert).
Overall, the place is recommended. Do try it out, and leave your comments here on whether you liked it or not.
