Searching for the
best pizzain New Orleans ?
Fresco’s is a great place to visit with friends, enjoy fresh food and relax. Hang out on the patio or get some pizza to-go. We keep things hip, fresh and light and we keep our focus on fresh quality food with great diversity and variety. Everything is made to order – Steam Tables and Warmers are non-existent at Fresco’s.
From the pizza dough to the dressing, almost everything here is homemade. We also take pride in helping local non-profits raise money via in-store promotions and events.
Fresco opened its doors in November of 2002 at 7625 Maple St, where Maple Gardens Restaurant used to be. It had also once been the location of the famous Amy’s Snowball Stand.

January 8, 2006 – Fresco closes down for a day, just to give a break to its staff that had been working overtime non-stop and short-handed to serve to the increased demand after Tulane and Loyola re-opened. The staff shortage gets a little bit better after 2 months.

Fresco is a family business, and it is a family of caring employees and customers. We plan to keep it that way.
Why is Fresco different?
Because we seek to be different: with the ingredients we choose, with the variety of tastes we put on our menu, with the wines we select – we always want to bring what’s highest quality, what’s exciting and what’s new.
