Muy buena comida, buen tamaño de la porción y muy buen sabor. Buena atención, precio razonable. Lugar tranquilo y acogedor. Sumamente recomendable para una buena comida italiana.

Our waiter was very rude and unprofessional. He and whom I only suspected was the manager were very rude over us asking to split our bill. The manager tossed my bill/credit card onto the table and walked away. Tried to keep charging for an extra pizza that was not placed. Sorry don’t think I’ll go back.

We have been to Bricco frequently over the last 6 years. Food and service have deteriorated. This time it was truly awful. The rollatni was cold inside. The pork chop overdone an tasteless. The service was horrible. We arrived at 6:15pm but didn’t get our main course until 7:25pm. We had to leave at 7:40pm for a concert at Carnegie Hall. We will never be back.

Our meal was very good and there was no rush to clear the table and sit the next party. When we first arrived, we were a little surprised that no one offered to sit us. It took about 10 minutes to get someone to greet us, but after getting seated, the staff was very attentive. Will certainly return.

We ended up here on a Saturday night, we were able to get a last minute reservation. Unfortunately there was a wedding party in the private room upstairs and I'm assuming they were short-staffed because it took over a half hour just to get menus. They kept refilling our waters but we just wanted to put in a drink order. We ended up ordering one course because we could tell we would be there all night if we tried to order multiple things. We were only served one drink, they never even came back to ask if we wanted another. Food was "meh" and we were just happy to get out of there before midnight.

Been here before. We arrived early and were seated immediately. Service started fast but there were some gaps after we had our main course. Food was very good (appetizer, salads and main course), but dessert was not very good. Chocolate Souffle was dry. Cappuccino was the hottest we had ever had in our lives. Overall very good even with the dessert issue.

A friend and I were looking for a quiet place for lunch new Columbus Circle. Luck of the draw we chose Bricco where she had eaten before, generally in the evening on business dinners. We were delighted by our lunch. We both had the calamari appetizer which was cooked perfectly. Since it's so easy to overcook, that was a particular treat. Our pastas and salads were all delicious. We both agreed that happily return the next time we had lunch plans in the area - particularly since the prices were quite reasonable. A big plus was that we were easily able to converse without having to shout over a noisy environment.

If you’re thinking that this is similar to the Bricco in Boston (as we did), you are mistaken. Old and tired looking inside, very little ambience. Service was slow and scattered. One bus boy took mercy on us, but the servers were just grinding out the evening. My husband had a pasta dish that was completely inedible. I had the cannelloni special, which was mediocre. At lease it was hot. The table next to us asked for their dessert three times, and then the waiter gave them a check with a bunch of additional items on it. We were seated close enough to have the scoop. It was the marathon weekend, so we endured the evening, but we won’t be back.

Average plate of pasta. Was not what I ordered as they had "run out of fettucine" but they forgot to tell me, so just served up linguini. My sauce is better at home.

My friend enjoyed her clams and a seafood salad.

Food was excellent and service was attentive. Nino the proprietor even stopped by the table to make sure everything was to our liking. This was my 1st time here and it was an excellent place for a nice Italian lunch. Would think it is also good at dinner time too.

This place was relaxed by NYC standards which was nice and the food was excellent. We split a salad of lettuce,tomato,avocado and mozzarella with a lite lemon vinegrette dressing. I opted for the puttanesca for a main and it was one of the best I’ve had. Plenty of olives and capers in a hearty tomato sauce. My husband had the special, linguini pescatore,lovely. Finished with a lite tiramisu. A totally satisfactory experience all around thanks to the attentive wait staff which was there without being in your face constantly,making conversation possible and pleasant.

The entree was quit good or I would have given it a lower rating considering the the rest of the meal. Overall, I found this restaurant mediocre. Our wait person was not talkative or friendly. Pretty much just came to the table told us the specials, took our order, and occasionally looked over from afar to see if we needed anything. Plenty of much better Italian Restaurants in NYC.

We enjoyed the cozy and quiet atmosphere. The service was very attentive. We both enjoyed our homemade pasta dishes and shared salad. The only disappointment of the evening was the stale chocolate torte. If we skipped dessert and ended with the coffee we would have been happier. But all in all I would recommend it.
