Dinner At Fresco's - St Petersburg FL

Dinner at Fresco's Waterfront Bistro in downtown St Pete was laid back perfect!

Dinner at Fresco's. We had dinner at Fresco's Waterfront Bistro in downtown St Pete, last Wednesday. Right off the Vinoy Basin, it was waterfront dining at its best.

Located on the southeast corner of Bayshore Drive and 2nd Avenue NE, Fresco's offers good food, good service, an incredible view within St Pete Municipal Marina, and an extremely laid-back dining experience.

We were on our way out to Cha Cha Coconuts, when I decided I was way too hungry to go all the way out on The Pier. We knew the menu was a bit "pricey" but we'd never eaten there before.

I'm glad she was agreeable. We planned to see the movie, "Soul Surfer" after dinner, and it gave us a lot more time to relax and talk during our meal.

It was a perfect April late afternoon. Sunny, dry, and a gentle breeze coming off Tampa Bay. Since it was a week night, Fresco's wasn't crowded at all. It was quiet, laid back, and beautiful. Just how I like to end a day here in Paradise.

We had some time after our pleasant dinner, so we took a 20-minute walk down past Vinoy Basin, before walking over to the theaters for our movie. It is beautiful in downtown St Pete.
