New Jersey’s Latest Hot Spot — Fresco Da Franco

Located at 15 Church Street in the bustling town of Montclair, Fresco Da Franco has attracted a lot of attention for its vibrant, party-like atmosphere combined with authentic Italian cuisine that is always fresh, and always made with love. 

Created by chef/owner Franco Porporino Jr., a first generation Italian American, Fresco Da Franco is a destination for brunch, lunch, and fine dining. The success of the place is owed a great deal to authentic cucina all nonna — delicious comfort food that it always satisfying and refined. 

From a young age, Porporino Jr. watched his grandmother and mother take simple ingredients from their gardens and translate them into captivating Italian dishes. The name “Fresco Da Franco (meaning Fresh by Franco)” is a node to them.
