I was genuinely surprised to make a 730 reservation on a Monday night and not to be seated until 745.

Your policy of not sitting people at their table until all in the party have arrived does not work for my business entertaining / meetings. I had a customer with me, and was waiting for a 2nd that was delayed (only 20 min. delay). I was told we had to wait rather than being seated and having the ability to start conducting my business. The bar was 3 deep and not an option space to wait in.

Food and service were excellent as always. Noise levels were fairly high, able to have conversation. Only complaint was being seated at a very small table when there were three open booths nearby. We had advised Bricco that our dinner was a special occasion.

The salmon is outstanding. I get this every time. My friend really enjoyed her penne ala vodka. We shared the salad with the goat cheese. Very different and delish

Fabulous food with outstanding service.
Only issue was that they were not able to initially process our open table reservation properly and we received notification from Open Table that we had not kept the reservation when were in fact there. It was eventually corrected

I have never had anything remotely resembling a bad dish at Bricco. The food is excellent, and the atmosphere convivial and lively. That explains why I characterize the noise level as "energetic". People love it there so the conversation amps up. In a quieter restaurant, people probably aren't having as much fun. In any event, I love Bricco and will go back many times.

Whenever there is a problem or special request management takes care of it immediately to my satisfaction,
The background music is too loud and genre is not to my liking.
How about some nice soft Italian music for the background music?

Pizzas are very good
Pasta carbonera very good
Caesar salad is sad, no shaved parm. Hardly any dressing, no lemon on the side, 3 rock hard croutons
Calamari grossly soggy with oil and half tentacles.
Would take out pizza and pasta again but not a return trip

My girlfriend and I went for Easter. We met PJ the bartender and Kathy the manager right away and we felt like family. We had Brussels sprouts for appetizer and was tremendous. We then had gnocchi and my girlfriend had another type of pasta. Amazing. Can’t wait to go back and eat and see my new friends- 4 stars

I specifically reserved a booth. Upon arrival I was seated half an arms length to other diners. When I brought the error to my waitresses attention I was told that nothing could be done, but she would notify the manager. The manager then came to my table and very loudly said he couldn't do anything, although, there were 3 booths available in sight. He gave us an appetizer on him but that did not make me anymore comfortable. Especially since we were being watched like a hawk by the waitress.

The food is outstanding. Beautiful setting. Service was spotty. Our server didn't tell us specials, we only saw her twice, were not given bread and the two tables next to us (different waiters) were seated and had drinks and placed their orders before our waitress even came by. Have been there before and had a different experience so it was this particular server. The folks at the door are stressed -it's a very busy place

Probably one of the very best restaurants in Connecticut. Everything from aps to main courses to deserts were the best I've had anywhere. When a restaurant has a waiting list at 8pm on a weekday night you know it has to be exceptional. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed. I can't wait to go back!

My first visit here and my lady and I were very impressed. The food was outstanding and the staff worked like a well oiled machine. We went at 8 on a Tuesday night and thankfully I had made a reservation. The place was packed. Our food was the baked Argentinian shrimp for our ap. Best shrimp I've ever had. The salmon and tuna dinners were top drawer. Very fresh and super presentation. We will be back soon.
