Diner Reviews
  • "We've eaten at Broicco fairly regularly since it opened, and have always thought the food and service were very good. We've also hosted a private party there, and will go back when the next occasion arises."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We love Bricco. When visiting my daughter in Carlisle, the only place we want to eat is Bricco in Harrisburg. It is easily the best restaurant in central Pennsylvania. The room is great, the staff is great, the cocktails are great, the menu is exciting, and the food delivers. You just can't go wrong at Bricco. A New York City quality restaurant in Harrisburg."

  • "This is our go-to spot to bring out-of-town business associates and the food and service never fails to impress. After dinner, I always mention this is the training ground for HACC which makes all the more impressive."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Have eaten here several times and continue to return as the food is good quality. The special catch (Tilefish) was done nicely over a mushroom risotto. Sweet potatoe ravioli were also good although perhaps the sauce was a little too butteery/oily. Service was good. The only disappointment was the martini; citron vodka in a sugar rimmed glass does not a lemon drop make."

  • "Bricco has been on our list for awhile and we finally visited for my fiancee's birthday. The ambiance is very classy and up-to-date and everyone from the door to the bar to our table was great and extremely professional. Dave was our server and he was EXCELLENT. He had a wonderful knowledge of the menu and made some excellent recommendations. We thoroughly enjoyed every course, and the most noteworthy of all the dishes was the brussel sprout appetizer (with siracha & honey), a must-have! Please be sure to visit Bricco, its been our best Harrisburg dining experience and you will not be disappointed!"

  • "My friend and I ate here while at a conference in downtown Harrisburg. We both ended up getting braised short ribs, and the dish was really quite good--tender meat and flavorful. We started with a cheese tray and ended with a tasty bread pudding. Service was good. Recommended!"
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Well, taking my pregnant best friend out for her 31st birthday lunch, I must say the food was suburb, but I felt like I was being judged the whole time I was there by our waiter and the help, I'm not sure what a smart casual dress code means . I sappose I was off , jeans hollister shirts , and coach bags are not suitable for lunch at the bricco. In no means am I saying the employees were rude , there is just a certain way that people can make it known they think you shouldn't be there or are good enough to be there. This is not a feeling I want when having lunch with my best friend. I hope this atmosphere can and will change, we live in Harrisburg pa, not NY, NY"

  • "I heard this was the nicest restaurant around but I really had no idea what I was in store for. Both my date and I thought the food and the service was fantastic from start to finish. So much so that this is the first review I've ever written for anything in my life. While I live nowhere near Harrisburg, if I'm ever even remotely in the area I would go out of my way to come back here. I only gave it five stars because I couldn't give it more than five."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "If you want to have a meal in downtown Harrisburg, convenient to the hotels, there aren't many choices that fit all of my criteria. This place has great food, an energetic atmosphere and prices that won't break the bank. Everything from very good pizza and creative salads to healthier fish meals and wonderful pasta dishes. The other restaurants downtown in this price range don't compare. And the atmosphere is fun, not foodie snootie."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "This was my first time at Bricco and I enjoyed it very much. The food was very good and the wine list was nice as well. Atmosphere was cool and we had a great time. Will definitely go back!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I took my wife here for her birthday. It was very nice inside and all the staff was great. Our server was very helpful with the menu and the service was very smooth. My wife had the sweet potato ravioli and it was amazing. We will probably go back just for that again. My meal was very good as well. Overall it was a very nice place, great for a special occasion. We will go back again."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The evening started a little off because our table was not ready for almost a half hour, but we waited in the bar which was good. The restaurant was very busy. We were seated in a small alcove near the window which was nice because it isolated us from noise but gave us a view of the street. The food was very good from salads to appetizers to main course. Not much of a selection for vegetarians which is unusual for an Italian menu. Service was very good. Overall we were very satisfied with our experience and would go back again."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Excellent menu with a creative and diverse selection. Service and execution were excellent. My salmon was bit overcooked or I'd have given the food a 5. The tomato basil soup was wonderful as was my salad. The sweet potato ravioli were delicious as was my salmon. Very nice wine list and our server was very efficient."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "The food as always was terrific. The menu has changed somewhat but the quality remains top notch. Our server wasn't the best, a bit lackadaisical but not terrible. It remains one of our staples."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "I think Bricco's is the best italian restaurant in Harrisburg and the surrounding area. The food is great and the owner has obviously spent a lot of time and money to make it look a certain way and provide a good overall experience. I had a duck ragout and she had lamb. The food was great and I asked the waiter for a glass of champagne on the sweet side. The waiter did an excellent job with the pick and my girlfriend really enjoyed it. Opportunities-They did a good job of picking the table by the window which was nice but the family gathering with a lot of kids ten feet away felt like they had a microphone.Large and potentially loud family gatherings should be offset as much as possible from private and intimate special occasions for two."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Went for a romantic dinner and loved every minute of it. Our server Aya was helpful and guided us through dinner. We had the Brussel Sprouts Appetizer, which was great. Short Ribs and Salmon were cooked perfectly and delicious. The restaurant had a great vibe, buzzing on Saturday night, but still somewhat intimate. Thank you for a fabulous night out!!"

  • "We had an amazing night out with family and friends!! Our server was super attentive and helpful in wine choice and details to the menu!"

  • "Met for lunch with a former colleague - his first time at Bricco. He was very impressed and plans to share his experience. Whenever dining there, it's always been great - the food is lovely & service is very attentive."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "My wife and I got a rare date night and were able to head to Bricco. The food was very good, seasoned well, nothing over cooked, very tasty. Atmosphere was very nice as well, not too loud, not too quiet. Wait staff was very friendly and eager to help. I would highly recommend this place to anyone."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "This dinner was a visit to one of our favorites after a Sunday symphony concert. My partner had butternut squash ravioli in brown butter - didn't leave anything on her plate - looked and smelled good, too. I had the 'Polenta of the Day' which today was a tomato ragu with meatballs on top of polenta. It was delicious and was such a large serving that I was the one with a box when we left. A down-home dish reflecting thought in the kitchen. On the dessert menu is now a section of full-size desserts and a section of smaller plates (not shot glasses) of different items from the full size. This is a great idea for those of us who want something, but not a whole lot. Great job again, Bricco."

  • "Excellent food, friendly knowledgeable staff, an overall fantastic ecperience!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Love the food (it was truly amazing - and I think we could have eaten it twice!!!) and the service was pretty good. The only complaint is that were seated close the kitchen, which gave it a "cafeteria" vibe; however, we could see the other side of the restaurant and it looked much more intimate and romantic than where we were sitting. Next time..."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Went with my girlfriend for a nice night out. Got the chicken and a side of Mac and cheese which was the best I've ever had. Slightly pricy but definitely worth it"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "I am a self proclaimed "foodie" and enjoy trying new places and new foods. Bricco was recommended to me, so I was very excited to finally try out the restaurant. The service was high class and professional. It is a higher priced restaurant for the area, but is well worth the price. To me, the very best part was the food. Everything that we ordered was nothing less than great. I fully enjoyed my meal, wine, oysters and of course the dessert."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Helpful service, elegant ambiance, succulent oysters with piquant chopped onion in vinegar dip, tasty veal meatball with fresh zucchini and tomato ragu on polenta wrapped up with refreshing pane cotta. I should have had a light red wine with the ragu. It was too strong for the Pinot Grigio."

  • "Food was excellent, service was excellent, birthday cake was beautiful. I will be back again. 5 stars. Thank you. MC"

  • "I have never been disappointed when i have eaten here. Food is always top notch and service is second to none. It is worth every dollar you will spend on a meal here."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "My wife and I enjoyed a very good dinner. The only reason for 4 stars for food was my wife's lobster in her dish was chewy, without much flavor. The braised beef I had was outstanding. The appetizer course was superior, as was the salad. A great place for a special occasion. Not cheap, but well within reason for what you get. The service was top notch."

  • "My boyfriend and I recently dined at Bricco for a Valentines/Birthday dinner. The food was superb and the setting was lovely. I look forward to returning again soon!"

  • "The best meal my boyfriend and I have had since moving to Pennsylvania from Las Vegas. I highly reccommend trying it out for a date night."

  • "Good food. Would have appreciated a little more attention to drinks. Also, reserved a table for two three weeks in advance but was seated at a four person table."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "My husband and I went out for a much-needed dinner out. As new parents we were excited to feel and talk like adults again. We have eaten at Bricco before and they did not disappoint. We split some kind of meatball-looking things stuffed with risotto and braised beef...amazing! I even loved the salted butter with my bread. I had the 6oz filet mignon and my husband had the braised spare ribs. We both ate every bite. I was so stuffed that I opted for a 2nd glass of champagne for dessert but the desserts sounded fantastic. I have eaten at Bricco for lunch and dinner and it is always fresh, unique and has great service. I have and will continue to recommend Bricco to friends and family."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Was looking for a trendy spot for a romantic night out and found Bricco using open table. Hidden in the heart of Harrisburg, Bricco offered everything I was looking for. Excellent meals (really like the options for small or full plates), great wine list and relaxing atmosphere. We were there early (which was perfect for me) and soon the place began to pick up a bit, especially for a Monday night. The bar area was very nice. I saw a few take the time to hook up to their tablets and enjoy a meal there. Overall, I really liked this spot and would definitely return again."
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "Bricco is a very fine restaurant and one of a handful of consistently excellent dining experiences in Harrisburg. We dined with friends at Bricco prior to an evening at the Symphony, and all four of our meals were simply outstanding. The wine pairing was superb and the service was attentive, just as we expected."
