The service was terrific, the food was outstanding, and the cocktails were even better.

The food was amazing. I had the carbonara and my fiancée had the Sunday Ragu. We dined outside on Saturday evening and the ambiance was very nice. One notable negative; we couldn't help to notice a gentleman who was sitting alone. He was making comments to the staff. His demeanor was quite negative. The staff began scurrying around, lighting candles and tiki torches. As this was just past sundown, the activities were normal. What was bothersome was the anxiety you could feel coming from the staff and management. My assumption was this was an owner of the restaurant. Management seemed to have to hover around this gentleman and, to some extent, the feeling of nervousness that emitted from the staff compromised a perfect dining experience.

Fantastic as usual!
I love Bricco. The food was fantastic. There were a couple of apps we hadn't tried before that are highly recommended - Lamb Meatballs and Ricotta Bruschetta - EXCELLENT!! The food is always wonderful.

Enjoyed my dinner & cocktail
Enjoyed my dinner & cocktail our waitress was lovely but very busy, found the restaurant to be very noisy difficult to hear myself think was glad I requested a booth chairs looked uncomfortable but overall enjoyed my experience and would come back & recommend to my friends.

We've Been Missing Out!
The food was delicious! We did order the cheese plate and it was beautiful, But we didn't care for all the cheeses. I imagine some would though! The service was attentive.

We had only had lunch at the restaurant before and were not expecting such a perfect meal.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food keeps getting better
We have eaten at Bricco several times and this time it was even better than other visits. Have a nice selection of fair-priced wines. The only slight drawback is the noise...really poor acoustics most noticeable when it's really busy. Staff is well-trained re: special diets...in our case gluten-free.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Would give 10 stars
We found this place in open table when in a neighborhood we were unfamiliar with and then a server at a wine tasting supported the choice. Well we couldn't be happier! Great ambience inside with small outdoors downtown seating area, great informative and friendly wait staff, Great food and a good wine list. Between the four of us we had eggplant app and entrée, Sunday special, Tuna entrée, and a nutella dessert. All amazing! Will travel there again definitely.

We always go back here because its consistently great!
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
local mixed foods
they do a great job of supporting local farms and bringing in fresh produce. the quality of the food is always excellent.
the menu was beautiful. it was hard to decide what to order as everything sounded so good.
Only area of improvement...a little better beer selection. maybe a couple local microbrews or off the path IPS'...
but that is certainly not a deal breaker for my return!
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
I made a reservation on open table and asked for a private table. Which was not hard as our reservation was at 530 pm. At first we were seated privately. The restaurant was not extra bust and there were plenty of tables around us when they seat this couple practically right on top of us making it hard to talk for either couples. Very disappointed.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Never been disappointed dining here. Consistently good.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
My "Go To" Place
Briccos is my fail-proof spot for a delicious dinner and fun atmosphere.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a great spot to meet friends for a very early (11:30am) lunch. The noise level, which can be really difficult when the restaurant is busy--especially when the bar is busy--was not an issue at all. Service was attentive but not overly so. Our choices were delicious. The price was reasonable. A place I've been to before and to which I'll return.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bricco - Never a disappointment
Third time there. Food always pretty much perfect. The only small downside was our waitress. She seemed on edge & not quite welcoming. Rarely came back to check on our party of 5. Water glasses remained drained until near the end of our meal. I give her a pass, however, but she does not seem to enjoy serving.
8/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
Delicious food - very accommodating
They don't advertise it but they Are very accommodating to special food sensitivities like gluten or dairy. If you wish to make an appetizer into an entry, they will do that too. Everything is delicious and if you leave hungry that's your own fault.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were seated right away. We were greeted by our server promptly too. The warm bread and oil for dipping, and side of olives were delicious! I had the sirloin steak. It was cooked just right but was somewhat fatty. That may have been my fault for not knowing my cuts of meat; I usually like filet mignon. Nevertheless, I was able to enjoy it, sans the fat. My side dish was skimpy on the green beans so I ordered an extra side of them!!! My husband got pizza and he said that he enjoyed his pizza and he had commented when we got there, "This is a nice place." The service was very good. (I am a former waitress, so that's saying something.) I would definitely go back there and I would order something more Italian like pizza or pasta.

We arrived a half hour early for our Anniversary Dinner and when walking in we were met with a smiling face and even though a half hour early they were more than willing to seat us immediately with our reservation. The restauarant has a rustic feel and a very good ambience. Our server, whose name was Ashley, met us with a huge friendly smile, and allowed us time to review our menu. No pushing, no hurrying very calm and relaxing. She was attentive to our needs, visited our table just enough, but not to be annoying. We had some questions on the menu where whe was very cordial in answering our questions. One of the best servers I have had in quite some time. Food was fresh and bountiful with flavor from apps to entree. Highly recommended!!!!!!

Food was great. Nice wine list. Will be headed back soon.

I like the vibe and decor
I like the vibe and decor of the restaurant.The waitress didn't seem like she was managing that many tables but had a hard time showing up to clear plates and check drinks on a timely basis. We shared the first course opting for the Bruschetta and Prosciutto, which were both tasty. I had the Meatballs served over Polenta with Sweet Peppers which was very good. My wife had the eggplant which looked like it'd been prepared earlier in the day and reheated. The mozzarella cheese on the top wasn't "oozing" like it'd come out of the oven but solid like it'd been reheated. It tasted OK, but probably would have tasted better fresh. Dessert was very good, although the crust on the cheescake was too "Oreo" for me. Overall, very good food, OK service.

First time at Bricco Trattoria and I loved it! Really delicious food- the salads are exceptional, the seafood dishes were perfectly cooked and seasoned and the wild boar was absolutely amazing!! The restaurant was packed with diners but the wait staff made us feel like we were the most important people there. All in all a really excellent restaurant which I hope to frequent often!!! Five stars PLUS!!!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bricco Trattoria consistently delivers fresh food, a nice atmosphere, and good wine. Delightful dining experience.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful dinner and service
My best friend and I went to Bricco's Trattoria for her 71st dinner. We had a wonderful experience. The waitress was extremely nice, personable and funny. She checked on us often, but not to be intrusive. The food was great, from the antipasti to our dinner, the food was commendable. I would recommend this restaurant again and again!!!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love this restaurant! There is always something delicious on the menu and all local!!!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great meal...
Visited during CT Restaurant Week and enjoyed another meal. The pear & beet salad was very tasty and the ravioli verde was outstanding. Our waitress was great & knowledgeable. Look forward to next visit.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was great as usual but...
We come here quite often. Tonight they had their 2013 menus speciial. Food was great but we had the worst waitress I have ever had in a fine dine restaurant. We had to stop other wait staff to get help for everything but the intitial order. At the end of the meal we could not even order coffee. We saw a number of normal waitstaff doing well. The manager needs to be more attentive to staff training and firing.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious food and great service!
This was my first time at Bricco; given that I have been to Billy Grant's other restaurants, I had high expectations. And I was not disappointed! We were seated at a lovely, intimate round table for a family birthday, and everyone was incredibly pleased with their drink, dinner, and dessert selections (personally, the honey mustard salmon is a must-try...perfectly prepared!). Allison, our server, was very attentive and pleasant as well.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
always great food
Bricco's always has great food. Reasonably priced for the quality of the food, very good service. A=
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ask for the back room and Melissa!
Appetizers were most definately notible and interesting, especially the Lamb Meatballs! Melissa was a great server!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent pasta, and very diverse wine list. If I could, I would eat there every night... and I'd probably get fat. But even then, at least I'd die happy...
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The overall experience was
The overall experience was very good. Food was great as always. The greeting from the host was less than warm. Not off to a great start. The first table offered was less than desirable when other more comfortable tables were available and the restaurant was not overly busy.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love the intimate level of the lighting and it has a very tasteful contemporary decor. If you don't find exactly what you want on the menu they will create a dish according to your specifications. Very attentive and accommodating to anyone with dietary preferences.

Best Italian in Glastonbury
We were visiting from out of town and the restaurant was recommended. The food was outstanding. We started with calamari which was crisp and delicious. The 4 of us had different dishes, each was excellent. The NY steak was done perfectly and was juicy and tender. The penne with shrimp was very good as was the Sunday polenta with the outstanding meatballs, short ribs and sausage. Lastly, the pasta with the wild boar ragu was TDF. The desserts are equally as good. All of the portions are quite large. The only downside to the restaurant is the noise level which was "very energetic" and talking amongst the 4 of us was difficult.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always an excellent time at this restaurant...never anything but great service and wonderful food and a lively atmosphere.

We enjoyed our dinner with our friends, the service was great and the food was wonderful.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything was delightful with the exception of the seating. I felt like were were too close to our neighbors. Private conversation was impossible.
The food was outstanding as was the service. Would highly recommend this restaurant . Next time I will ask for a booth.

Tuesday night out in Glastonbury
Food quality at Bricco was top notch as always. However bar service is quite unpredictable, and for a Tuesday night when the restaurant is not full, this is surprising. Waitress brings back 3/4 of drink order with no comment on what happened to drink number 4. After a wait, we ask, and she responds somewhat indignantly that it is coming. (???) Some waiters are great and some are distracted at Bricco. Custom combinations are at a premium price, so watch out. If you have plenty of money and time, Bricco is unbeatable, so I would guess that is their target clientele.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
So many wonderful savory menu items. Not your "everyday" Italian restaurant! The portions were of normal size-what a treat! The only downside to this restaurant is the lack of parking on a Friday night. The entire area was bustling and we had difficulty locating a parking space until we went across the street.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
I dined at bricco with my boyfriend and another couple and we had a great experience. The food was amazing and everyone in the party loved the entree selected. Portion sizes were excellent for the price and we all left very happy and very full.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
There were 6 of us & everyone enjoyed their great food & our server Maria was very attentive. Best Capucino I've ever had & I am usually just a Sftarbucks fan. Hope Bricco keeps serving Brunch the rest of the year.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great atmosphere,fun and vibrant!
I went to Bricco's on Sat night 11/23 with three other people,I found the staff to be organized and accommodating.The atmosphere was relaxed and very comfortable,the food was good and the service excellent ! I would recommend this restaurant and I am looking forward to returning again!

Bricco Trattoria Never Disappoints
Have been to Bricco Trattoria many times and have never been disappointed in a meal! The atmosphere is really fun and anything on the menu is delicious. I had salmon and it was cooked perfectly. I love the apple salad and also love the caesar salad. The hot fudge sundae with peanut butter crunch ice cream and a peanut brittle garnish was yummy! This is the place where we celebrate both special occasions as well as a casual night out!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
we had dinner here with family from Manhattan. as usual the service was spot on and the food was perfect out of the kitchen.We had a great night and as usual the staff and kitchen did not disappoint.
