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.

Its not cheap and the upstairs dining room is not as nice as sitting downstairs. However the meat agnolotti in cream sauce were amazing and the Veal leg w prosciutto & fontina was top top notch. Good drink selection. We had a great night.

Hands down the best, most consistent restaurant in the North End. People I bring to Bricco are always blown away. This is my go-to for business dinners with out-of-towners. You won't be disappointed.

The noise level was so extreme we couldn’t understand anything from the waiter. They moved us to the upper floor and there was no difference in noise levels.

We were entertaining a couple from out of town and wanted a great meal in the North End and had a great review from a friend. So we went to Bricco and LOVED it. The crab cake appetizer was incredible. For our main meal the sea bass was “the best I have ever had”, the lobster pasta was great. For desert the bread pudding was “the best, off the charts, not to be missed” and the chocolate lava cake with the gelato was fantastic. The owner Frank came by to say hello which was an extra special touch

Highly recommend

Just meh- didn't seem like there was a chef tasting anything or making sure anything was good. Bread was slightly stale, Caesar was just basically greased lettuce. Worst I've had. Disappointing- like they just don't care. Way too expensive for this level of quality- feels like they think tourists will eat anything.

We hadn’t been to Briccos in 5 years. The food was wonderful and service was excellent. Having valet parking for $22 is a plus. Wonderful dining experience in the North End which is in itself a great place to be on a clear night In Boston.

The beet salad was OK. Pasta was good, but a little soft (even for fresh pasta). Very good amatricana sauce. I would like another bread option in addition to the proscuitto bread. Great coffee. Margherita Caracappa Matteis

We had a fabulous dinner at Bricco. Food, service, ambience are all excellent. We had Burrata Caprese and fried shrimp, scallops and calamari to start. Both were delicious. Salmon, Sea Bass and Truffle Ravioli were our entrees. They were also delicious. Service is very good and attentive.

Despite having a reservation we were escorted by 3 four top tables in the main dining room to walk up two flights of stairs to be sat in a back closet of a room with three tables. Ridiculous accommodations! Pour service, mediocre food and small portions. Took forever to get the check. Overall- overpriced & truly not very good. Will never return.

Fantastic. Been to Briccos about 3 times now and never disappointed. The stuffed squash blossoms are to die for. Everything fantastic including service. A bit pricy, but it is Boston North End and you are getting high quality. Leave the kids home. Bar is fantastic if you want to get there early and have a Negroni!

Although we had a reservation, we were sat at a table near the kitchen. My chair was repeatedly bumped by servers. We asked to be moved but were told that another table was not available. However, a few table remained vacant for the duration of our stay.

perfectly good, well executed pasta dishes, but not outstanding or exceptional. depth and richness of flavor was lacking. satisfactory but not memorable. considering this, probably not worth the price and there are better options in the north end.
