    I have had many great meals here but this past one was not one of them. I had an early evening reservation and found that 2 of the things I wanted to order they were out of. This was before 7:15 pm. The place was pretty full and the service was decent but for the price I paid the overall meal was "ok". I have had dinner there at least 5 times before and never an average to a bad time. This time it was just average overall. I definitely wouldn't say the price justifed the overall eating experience. I hope in the future it will.

    Their server recommended the braised short ribs. This was the only recommendation that was good. They were out of the wine we wanted and when I asked for something comparable I was given a wine that tasted nothing like what I wanted. It was a flat red with no flavor. Overall for the price it was ok, but I would not return.

    My sister and I dined here during Restaurant Week and for $30 each had a great meal! I had smoked chicken cannelloni, a meatball appetizer, and cannoli for dessert. It was all excellent, although the chocolate budino my sister had was a better dessert! We had drinks at the bar, which more people came in the later it got and the bartenders were all very attentive.

    We had a wonderful experience from appetizer to dessert. The food was TREMENDOUS. the service was very professional. The bar was - just alright. The men tried to order the same featured beer. Sorry, only one bottle left. I ordered a Black Russian which cost $12 and it didn't even fill half the glass. If you used a smaller glass it would have been a large shot glass. That's how small the drink was. That was very disappointing.

    It was the day after the epic night before...yes, I was feeling a little "rough". We had already made plans to meet friends there for dinner, as I knew I wouldn't be up to cooking at home. As soon as we were seated, I asked Martin, our wonderful server, to please bring me some of their wonderful French Fries with truffle aioli to start on. Drinks came out, then my fries followed very shortly after. Talk about the magic that french fries do for a hangover! It was amazing how much better I started to feel, and also began to perk up rather quickly. And he kept my water glass full the whole time. It's the little things, like expedited french fries, a smile of understanding, great food and service, that makes Bricco...the perfect cure.

    Bricco is one of those restaurants that you love to go back to again and again. The wait staff are there when you need them, but I never feel a sense of hovering or interruption that can happen at other places. And, the food is always outstanding. Every meal that I have had here was thoroughly enjoyed. And the reasonable wine prices is a bonus!

    This was our second visit to bricco and all was outstanding except the service. Although the service was adequate, the waitress seemed to rush us through our appetizer, meal, and desserts. We ordered a cheese board and the waitress did not tell us what was what...in fact she didn't even review the specials before we ordered. It was a weird experience. Hopefully just a fluke as we really enjoy this place!

    We had a wonderful experience at Bricco. We were celebrating our kid's 16th birthday and wanted to try a new restaurant. We decided to go to Bricco and we were not disappointed. From the service, hats off to our waiter Eric, to the exceptional food the experience was by far the best we had at a restaurant in very long time. We all tried something a little different that evening with my son really stepping out of his comfort zone with the "polenta board", overall the presentations were beautiful and of just the right proportion and the wine was out of this world. We had a great time and some fabulous food and look forward to our next visit to Bricco.

    Decided on Bricco for my husband's birthday dinner and we couldn't be more satisfied that I did. Fantastic food and service. Pistachio crusted goat cheese, smoked carrots, perfectly cooked risotto, wonderfully creamy polenta, duck ragu...I could go on. For fine dining the servings were sizable with plenty to take home for yummy leftovers. Drinks were fantastic too. Highly recommend the Don Draper. For a nice evening to celebrate a special occasion definitely check out Bricco. They have pizzas too though too so I wouldn't mind trying them for a more casual gathering.

    We were looking for a restaurant nearby the Harrisburg Hilton since we arrived at the hotel late on Friday night. Bricco was within walking distance and absolutely delicious. The food was outstanding and so was the service. We started out with the Arancini, Meatballs and Mozzarella, they were all fantastic. Some of the entrees we had were the Garganelli pasta with prosciutto, tomato and vodka sauce, braised beef short ribs, polenta and even pizza. We finished off with a cannoli's. No disappointments at our table, everyone left full and happy, ready to tackle Hershey Park on Saturday. We highly recommend this restaurant for a great Italian meal in Harrisburg, PA.

    The decor is tasteful and artful. We had the Lobster and Shrimp Bisque soup and it was so creamy and flavorful. Ordered one of the Specials, beef tips and shrimp w/veggies and polenta. Great combination of flavors and plentiful. My son ordered the thin crusted pizza and he did not leave a crumb. Our waiter, Shawn, was attentive and patient. Our only disappointment was the dessert. We ordered Tiramisu and we could not eat it. It was extremely sweet and not creamy. Quite a different take on the traditional Tiramisu. Our waiter offered to remove it from our bill and inquired if we would like a different dessert. I would highly recommend Briccos and look forward to returning.
