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.
Great spot to have dinner with a group of friends !
This was my second time at Bricco. It is so authentically Italian. This particular night it was a bit louder than usual because the table beside us was large and loud!
The food was great, but I will say the Alaskan crab cake appetizer was not good at all. The quality of the crab was really inferior.
The steak was great and the baked pasta and meatballs was good.
We live in California and this restaurant is a must when we are visiting in Boston . Food is excellent and service is great . Can’t wait till next time . Thx Bricco
Amazing food and service, will gladly dine here again.
I have been to Bricco before and I loved it! This time, I enjoyed the food and wine and was with great company but I was disappointed by the service. I’m not sure if it was because it was a busy Thursday night but the server never came around to ask how our food was between meals or if we wanted anything else. He brought the check to the table before being asked and before we can ask for a cappuccino after our dessert.
Will not be disappointed - truly authentic. Will go every time I come to Boston.
Not returning. Service was great thank God because the food was horrible. Sent our main dishes back and had to order something else. Even the second option wasn’t great. After stating I had a vinegar allergy I was given a charcuterie with vinegar on it twice before the third time when it came out clean. Not worth the money at all. But our waiter was a doll and earned every cent. Much better places in The North End! Check out Panza or Al Dente! We love them both.
Everything was spot on... server was very attentive and informative and the food was delicious
Food was delicious! And we got beyond our money's worth during restaurant week!
Good food, though not my top pick for the North End. Food took over an hour on a Tuesday, which was disappointing
Tiramisu tastes same as the one from Whole Foods
Food, service and environment was the best I’ve had in a long time!!
Food is great, everything we ordered was delicious. Very, very loud. Conversation at our table of 4 was essentially impossible. This can be an expensive night out.
Reunion with friends
I loved the food and the wait staff were awesome with their service. My one complaint is how close the tables are to other diners. I felt like we were on top of each other and it was a little difficult having a quiet conversation.
Other than that, this was my first time there and I was overall very impressed with the food. I will definitely go back to eat here.
Wanted to love it - food was enjoyable as were the drinks but the menu is pricey and service was nothing to write home about. There are too many superior options in the north end to justify giving this place 5 stars.
First time at Bricco. Everything was perfect the food the service the ambiance all great.
Excellent food and service. Great menu variety. Did Dine out Boston-the filet was cooked perfect. Highly Recommend.
Fabulous food- I am a frequent visitor but took advantage of Great restaurant week menu- only $33. for dinner! I had filet 8oz - superbly cooked, octopus appetizer, and tiramisu to die for! Restaurant week price is an incredible price and great way to try Bricco. My husband had his usual Bricco’s Bridetto- lobster, shrimp, monkfish, calamari, clams and mussels in a tomato broth - superb
I would recommend bricco to a friend for drinks however the app size was very small the charcuterie board had a few pieces of salami and wad of undisclosed cheese. My entree was very good but again the portion sizes were very small
Awesome! Celebrated birthday
Honestly, this was my worst restaurant experience of 2019 (went in early March) and worst ever in the North End of Boston. We had a 9:15 pm reservation and they made us wait for a table anyway. Then the server bragged that that he “knows a lot about food and wine” but proceeded to serve my gluten free dishes with gluten three times despite her warning him not to. The wine list was mediocre and the two wines we had were about 15 degrees too warm and we asked for an ice bucket. He brought ice but no water. Ice does NOT chill wine! Water with ice in it is how an ice bucket works. The food was blah. I will never be back. It was horrible!
Excellent. One of bests meals ever! Highly recommend.
Had drinks and dinner with Glenn at the rear bar. Best bartender in Boston👍 Has always been my go to restaurant in the North End.
great restaurant , great food , great ambience , we had a very knowledgeable waiter ( a little hard to understand ) the chef came over to the table which was a real treat
We were greeted as we entered the restaurant. We had a reservation and were seated by the window immediately. Service was great. We were not rushed. We got drinks, then ordered - appetizers came, shortly after we finished the main course arrived. Presentation was exceptional. Filet was on a slate rather than a plate. After we finished we ordered dessert and coffee. Blueberry cheesecake was outstanding. Filet was cooked perfectly. My friend had fish and it was also cooked perfectly. We could carry on a conversation without a lot of noise around us. Server was very nice, checking to make sure we liked everything. We will be back.
Amazing Italian food. Everything we got was delicious, beautiful presentation. Extremely happy with our meals.
Great atmosphere and food. The “special” cheese ball appetizer was superb!
Food and service was very good.
Great food, great service. The only thing that was a little awkward was how close we were to the other tables.
One of the best Italian meals I’ve had in years. I will certainly be back next time I’m in Boston.
One of the best Italian restaurants that I ever ate in. The food was great as much as the service.
Excellent meal and excellent service
I thought my meal was very dry and tasteless. It was the first time that I ordered a Bricco pasta dish though. I would stick to the other items on menu and not the pasta. I have had 5 star meals there. I will go back but order something besides pasta.
As always the Wild Bour Ragucci was excellent
Our experience at Bricco was outstanding. The waiter was amazing, and the food was out of this world. Would definitely recommend and return
Food was great. That's the most important.
The place is so dark. Like can't read menu dark. Could use better lighting. Hard to see your dinner guests. So dark. Also loud.
Also they don't offer dinner salads. I like dinner salads before my dinner. I would not go back just for that reason alone. But that's me personally.
I enjoyed the gnocchi which was recommended by our waiter. My husband also loved the papperdelle!
Two excellent pasta dishes!!
Excellent meal! We ordered the Eggplant Bake as an appetizer, which was delicious! I had the Amatriciana Garganelli for my main course. The pancetta in the dish had a wonderful smoky flavor. My husband had the ‘Big Night' Timpano. The dish was very flavorful! The only down side was that we were right by the bar and it was extremely loud. We had difficulty hearing our server or each other. We will definitely return; it’s right in the heart of the North End and only a couple of doors down from Modern Bakery!
