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.

    The food tastes good. The service is slightly slow probably because there are not enough staff, but the attitude and quality of service is good. The environment is slightly noisy, but it is acceptable. Overall it is a good restaurant.

    Our server today was just fabulous. Unfortunately we never got her name, but the 70 something that looks 60 is your greatest asset to Briccos. She made us feel like we were home. Excellent food as always. Can't wait to return.

    Experience with a number of restaurants in the neighborhood, first time at Bricco. Memorable experience and our server Alda(?) was absolutely charming, helpful and professional. Manager, Mason, was sincerely interested in our experience which was appreciated. We will highly recommend this restaurant to friends and will definitely return on our annual trip to Boston

    stopped in for dinner before the Boston Celtics game...sat at the bar and dined with bartender, Courtney. She was a delight. She had recommendations, of course she lead with the famous espresso martini, but I decided on a vodka martini instead, and it was made perfectly. A must order at Bricco, as I was told, are the zucchini blossoms and the meatballs. I did just that, and ordered a side of pasta with their excellent sauce. I was offered a delicious crusty bread with roasted garlic, a pesto and white bean puree, before dinner. the bar was lively but not loud, and conversations were had with my new friends about the food, and the Celtics. Paired my food offerings with a nice glass of Sangiovese to round out the perfect pregame dinner. Would definitely go again!

    Bricco is one of my favorite restaurants in the North End. The service is unmatched and the environment is lively. The espresso martinis are to die for. We came here for a meet up with some friends I haven’t seen in a long time and everything was perfect. Would recommend Bricco for special occasions or even a casual date. Thank you to the staff and Joey for taking such good care of us and being so accommodating. We look forward to visiting again soon!

    Exceptional service. They held our table for 1.5 hours as we were stuck in the Sumner Tunnel. Staff was incredibly attentive. Don't plan on intimate conversation, it was very loud, even for a Friday night. Food was well prepared and tasted good but not memorable.

    Dined on Thanksgiving. Busy, food as always was delicious. All main entrees were excellent, pappardelle, farfalle especially. The deconstructed tiramisu was different and enjoyable. Portions seemed to be slightly smaller than in the past. Not a reason to pass over this restaurant. Have dined in several other North End restaurants, had good meals, but something about Bricco just keeps bringing us back!!

    We've been to a number of restaurants in the North End but this was our first visit to Bricco. The restaurant was full at 3pm on Thanksgiving and after the meal we ordered it was understandable why. From the apps to the main course the food was amazing. Service was fantastic... As busy as they were we never felt rushed at any time. Looking forward to our next visit to try other items on the menu.

    The food was good but my boyfriend and I came for his birthday and the service left a lot to be desired. I get that we look young and a two top with young people wasn't somethings this server was looking forward to, but we were celebrating and we are good tippers and we really didn't appreciate being ignored. We were served red wine in white wine glasses, and looking around everyone else with red wine had the correct glass. Everyone but us. Our server didn't even introduce herself. There were also no birthday wishes even though it was on our reservation. We enjoyed our food but we felt dejected by the service.

    Arrived at 930 on Saturday night to a full restaurant which is expected, however the hosts told us we have to wait for over an hour to get a table and that two seats were available at bar. So we sat at the bar ordered two Peroni drafts that were flat and warm. The bartender never offered menus. He replaced my flat beer with another flat beer which I left on the bar. I opened the open table app and booked a table for 10, my husband went up at same time and the hosts said 1030. Not sure what their problem was seems like they were trying to keep the downstairs looking busy. At 10 we went upstairs where that part of Bricco was half full with plenty of unoccupied tables. Ordered mussels for an app and they were DISGUSTING and inedible, tasted like dirty ocean water. Not cleaned or seasoned and barely even opened. Next we got a pathetic charcuterie/antipasto board that had hardly anything on it even for one person and the meats tasted like market basket cold cuts. The entrees were mediocre at best. Pumpkin tortelli was just ok ,my friend had rack of lamb which was not a full rack and was over cooked. Don’t bother going unless you like touristy places with bad food and bad service for an expensive price tag. Should have cut out after the flat beers and rude staff

    Dinner was great - we had asked to be down by the bar in the livelier area which they couldn't provide so we were upstairs in the more formal area. We had the zucchini flowers to start and all ordered the amatriciana pasta which was great.

    It wasn't a bad experience. Someone at my table ordered something and was brought a completely different dish. I asked for a medium well steak, got a a very well done steak. The waiter did fix the order that was put in wrong, and was very polite. The restaurant was much louder than I expected when I put in the reservation. It wasn't a bad experience, but is definitely a place you only ever go to once in your life.
