Italian
Bricco’s star has been rising steadily since restaurateur Frank DePasquale revamped the menu to feature modern interpretations of regional Italian dishes.

Bricco has garnished superlative reviews from food writers in Boston and around the country – Best Guaranteed Meal in the North End and Best Pasta in Boston just two of the most recent accolades.

The talented kitchen team creates “boutique” Italian food, so-called because it is unique, personal and created for a select and sophisticated diner. The food is complemented by an enoteca (wine bar) with an exceptional selection of all-Italian wines.

Bricco also offers a sophisticated late night scene. The chic and energetic bar serves up great one of a kind cocktails as well as brick oven pizza with gourmet toppings such as prosciutto and fresh mozzarella from Italy in addition with appetizer selections.

Amazing dinner birthday celebration; delicious food and refreshing libations. The bread and dips were outstanding. The special squid ink pasta with lobster was fabulous.

The aged NY sirloin was really outstanding contaning complex layers of flavors of marble fat. The texture was tender and delicate, juicy, and impressive. Looking foward to try other stuff here.
Something can be improved: more light please. Give us better views on foods and the lay out. BTW, I really wanted to have a glass of muscat.

Excellent food and service. They helped design a multi-course vegan meal for a person in our party and that's not common in the north end

7:30 is not an early enough reservation for the new 9:30 PM closing rule. We were sat 20 minutes late, ordered our food at 8:15 and didn’t receive it until 9:00 PM. we had to rush to eat before getting kicked out at 9:30. If the food didn’t take 50 minutes to come out, we would’ve ordered dessert/espresso martinis to end the night.

Highly recommended food was excellent. Only issue that all restaurants have that it’s hard to hear the staff when they have a mask on and are behind plexiglass. But overall great

Third time we have come here - always for a special occasion when we come to visit our son in Boston. We are from NY so we know good Italian food and this is the best!! The wait staff is well trained and friendly and the ambiance is excellent. The weather was so nice the dinning room doors were opened and we could interact with people walking by on the sidewalk. Great time, great meal.

I went to Bricco Friday night and Patty was our sever! Patty was the absolute best....she was attentive, engaging in conversation, and made a great entree recommendation. The Pappardelle al Cinghiale does not disappoint neither does Bricco’s espresso martini. The evening was an overall great experience and thank you, Patty.

Phenomenal birthday celebration. The amazing bread and garlic & pesto dips were delicious along the shrimp scampi. The pork & sea bass were moist and flavorful. Ended the evening with the BEST espresso martinis and warm banana bread pudding were out of this world.

Great experience. Have been to Bricco several times, and the variety in food and drink keep us coming back. Burrata app was fresh and each pasta dish was, as always, cooked to perfection. Best espresso martini in the city!

The appetizers were amazing (polenta and shrimp scampi)
The nhoque was delicious. I make this at home ( very close to homemade) I could do without the extra cheese they put on top( this dish does not need it) The sea bass was the best fish dish my husband has ever had (on a scale from one to ten, this fish was a fifteen (15).

Our night was wonderful. The food was fantastic and the waiter was so nice and funny and great at moving our night along. This wouldve been a 100% 5 star experience had we not been left sitting for over an hour after finishing our dessert and our after dinner drinks. We had our drink glasses cleared and still sat with water glasses for 45-50 minutes before having to ask our waiter for the check. The check was not delivered for another 20-25 minutes after asking. Unfortunate to end such a great night on a bad note this way.
