Nice restaurant. We've been to Briscola many times. Usually pretty quiet and above average food, but don't expect spectacular.
Return visit-food excellent, as usual. Great service. Highly recommended.
Terrible Italian, they don't know the difference between bolognaise sauce and vodka sauce, gnocchi were lumps of dough, shrimp scampi, oily, too much garlic. Not a good dining experience!
Just a poor experience!!! We were ther for a birthday celebration and it turned out to have cold food and poor service. Regardless of them being busy there are no excuses for cold food that should be served hot... Waitress seemed to give us the impression that we were not her primary focus.
We were seated in the outer room - the bar area. The space is nice, but less formal and intimate than the back room. Our table for four was a little awkwardly places at right angle to another table.
Our waiter, while friendly, was inexperienced and generally unfamiliar with wines and menu items.
I had the Veal Picatta. It was ok, but not outstanding. Two of the veal slices were tender, but the third was a bit tough and overcooked. I felt the sauce was a bit heavy on the cream and light on the lemon and capers. Sides are a la carte.
The garlic bread was not warm and was a bit dry.
Overall, the meal was not terrible, but nothing special. This was pretty standard generic Italian food. Since we are locals, I would probably not eat here again as there are other choices in town for more innovative Italian food.
Great food. Large selection. The chicken Parmesan was delicious. Atmosphere quiet and relaxing. Service was professional and attentive.
Enjoyed the food and service, only drawback, we heard our waiter reading specials to other patrons after we ordered. Disappointed we were not given that opportunity to enjoy the specials for the evening.
The restaurant and menu are very outdated. Food was ok but nothing exciting. Wine by the glass is a small amount. Can not believe this is a Charlie Palmer offering. I will not return.
Husband's chicken piccatta was fine. My chicken marshals was so dry I couldn't swallow it. Sent it back and DoD not get another. My choice. Corkage was $25.
Always an AWESOME experience! I visit Briscola at least once anytime I'm in the Reno / Tahoe area.
Great cocktails.. great food.. great service.. great meal.. prior to a Great concert!.. Meghan our server was very attentive!..
We were in Reno, NV, for a convention and did not know what to expect from this Italian restaurant at the hotel. We actually liked it so much that we returned the following night to dine ! This was some of the best homemade pasta and sauce that I have ever had.
I had Spaghetti Marinara and my husband had Vodka Penne. The garlic bread was to die for as was the gelato for dessert. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful.
The service was adequate at best. The food was over-priced and poorly prepared. It was barely edible.
Ate at Briscola prior to seeing the Donny & Marie show at Grand Sierra - food was good & the waitress did a great job.
Service was great, friendly, and prompt
Served clams that smelled rancid
Worst veal picatta ever
Fire the cooks
