    The food is good but the staff annoying come and ask you if you are done every 2 minutes. Makes the food less desirable. My friend and I shared a pizza and by the second piece we had been asked if we were done so many times we have up on the pizza. That was awful. I however like the restaurant and would go there again.

    Everything about lunch with a business partner was outstanding. Our table was ready when reserved, the waitress was very friendly and efficient, the food selections were numerous, our food delivery was prompt, the food itself was a delight (and fairly priced), and we could carry on a conversation at normal volume without being overwhelmed by the background noise. I've eaten at Bricco's many times for dinner, and I can say that the superlatives of those experiences carry over to lunch.

    The only complaint on my end was that there was a swarm of bees that would not quit bothering our table. Bricco's is an amazing place and this specific review would be rated top notch if it were not for the bees, or we were simply sitting inside.

    I've been to Bricco's numerous times for lunch and can honestly say the food is consistently great. Unfortunately the noise level at times can be a little out of control making if difficult to have a conversation - at today's luncheon we had to request the music to be turned down - it was just too loud. I wish restaurants would understand that music should be at a quiet "background" only level and not loud so it makes it difficult to hear the person sitting next to you - let along someone sitting across from you. Overall I would recommend this restaurant and will continue to go.

    The greeting, the decor and the attentive service were exactly what you expect from a quality restaurant. Unfortunately the server ending up getting 2 out of 3 items ordered wrong. The food was good and we were hungry so we dined on but in hindsight if you don't get what you ordered it wasn't a perfect night.

    I booked a reservation for my wife's birthday. The staff honored my request for a semi-private seating area. We were near the bar, but the noise level was moderate; easy to hold a conversation around the table. The server was attentive, but not in your face. We started with drinks, shared an app, and both entries were delicious. This is the second time we've dined at Bricco. The level of service was consistent with our first visit back in late June. I've read some negative reviews on other sites, but I feel they are not warranted. if you have a problem w/service, bring it to the attention of your server, or the manager and resolve it on the spot. Complaining later is poor form.

    Great food, attentive staff. I had mentioned in my reservations through open table that we were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. I had made similar notes to other restaurants in the past (birthdays. etc) but nothing ever happened. we were greeted by the manager with 2 complimentary glasses of champagne, such a nice, classy touch. We had a wonderful evening.

    Bricco is at the top of my Glastonbury list. The service is always good. The food is great with top notch presentation. I have never had a bad meal in the many times I've visited the restaurant. In the last 10 days I've had 4 meals at Bricco with various clients. We like to take our clients there because we can count on a consistently great experience.

    Sometimes the food here is outstanding and sometimes puzzling. While the ravioli was excellent, the swordfish was rubbery. We stopped going here because of the poor service and general cleanliness. We decided to try it again because of the 20% off; after this experience we may never dine here again. Perhaps the menu is too complicated for the kitchen to handle. Our waitress seemed new - we have never seen the same waitstaff a second time probably an indicator of high turnover - and mindless at times. After asking us if we wanted another glass of wine when we had finished the appetizer, she did not bring them until we had almost finished the entrees. Try to get a booth; the metal chairs at tables are lightly padded and uncomfortable.

    Bricco's in both G'bury and WH are well established for all-around quality, and our group of 4 wasn't disappointed. Wine and cocktails, appetizers, and a variety of entrees were all immensely enjoyed. Worth noting is there offering of a seasonal trio, soup/salad, entrée, and dessert all seasonally selected and specially priced. It's obvious they have a great chef.

    We were delighted with the ambience here, yet the service was horrible, our aps' came out in good fashion (the home made cheese and toast is highly recommended) yet we waited over 1.25 hours for our main course, this would have been tolerable yet our glasses sat empty with no apologies our offers, we found 2 of the three min courses barely warm, the steak was a nice cut and the salmon looked good yet they were sitting inn the kitchen for a long time, waiting on the chicken we calculated, as it was at proper temp.

    On time per reservation, were rushed to order, rushed through antipasto by a waitress and a waiter. Main course came, with no peppermill or shaved cheese, couldn't find our waitress. Finally spotted her, she dropped off a shabby 5-inch glass peppermill that was not working. My company was so polite, "maybe it's me but I can't get it to work." Of course it was malfunctioning, the waitress took it back to the kitchen, came back with another shabby peppermill, dropped it at the table and took off. Did not receive itemized bill, after I signed the slip the itemized bill appeared, showed a dish we didn't order, another 15 mins for another slip to sign. To this date my credit card account is still showing the incorrect amount. A nightmare!
