Fresca Delph

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Saturday night, I finally celebrated my 33rd Birthday with 3 of my lovely friends as well as celebrating another of their birthdays.

We headed to a fairly local restaurant Fresca Italian, even if I did send our designated driver the long way round! 

The restaurant itself is in an industrial type unit and I'd only been past it on the bus so I wasn't sure what to expect, but it really is lovely. It feels really modern and bright. With an open kitchen and a woodfired pizza oven. 

We asked to move as we were right in the centre and although it wasn't full it was really noisy and our table was quite small. 

We moved to a booth right at the back which was perfect. Quite so we could cackle away but actually hear ourselves think. 

There was little phone signal but free Wifi (as long as you like them on FB) was a bonus. 

As it was a birthday we started with peach Bellini's which were delicious but soon moved one to the Rosé. 

We had 3 courses, sadly in my excitement I didn't get a shot of my main.
I started with Calamari Fritti £8.50 which I felt was quite a lot but it was a huge portion and felt it was well justified, the tartare sauce was also really nice. 
Main course was Risotto al Pollo £9.95 - as well as chicken there was, prosciutto, courgettes, lemon, leeks, peas& thyme. Mine didn't have any Pea's in it which was cool by me as I hate pea's. I did say to my friends I love chicken risotto but someone always adds pea's so it was a lovely bonus for them to be left out. A little birthday treat!! 
We were all really full but decided to squeeze in a desert. I opted for Chocolate brownie and it was amazing. I really love brownies at the moment. It was sticky, gooey, warm, crunchy perfect and it was a huge portion that try as I might I just couldn't finish. 

With wine my share came to around £40. I'm not sure how much I normally spend on meals out. I guess I don't really go out for 3 course meals all that often. 

I would go back again for a special occasion and I'm sure my friends would agree we really enjoyed our night out. even if we were too full to go out drinking afterwards!
