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.

    We were returning with friends visiting Boston. Server acted as if we were imposing on him. Long wait to take our order. Not sure if he even checked on us when food was brought out. Grabbed plates from us with food still on them. Didn’t even listen to us as we were placing orders. Assisting staff was great bring bead and water. Not sure we will ever return, especially at their prices. I expect more, server spoiled the experience.

    On a slightly cool early evening, we chose to have dinner at a sidewalk table. The sounds. sights, and people of the North End surrounded us. It was a delightful place. The hostess happily found that table for us, and the servers greeted us with bread, oils, and water. The waiter graciously checked with the chef a number of times to be able to accommodate our dietary requirements. The first glass of wine I ordered, an expensive Barolo, was flat (I suspect that it came from a bottle that had been opened for some time), and the waiter simply substituted a very fine sauvignon blanc. The food was disappointing. The carpaccio salad had a strong undercurrent of perhaps garlic (we were not certain) that undermined the delicate presentation. And my farfalla tartuffe had likewise a strong spice--perhaps roasted paprika(?)--that stayed on the tongue. The fresh lobster was, unfortunately, overcooked. The bill was quite high for what was, in the end, an only a moderately enjoyable dining experience.

    We had a wonderful evening at Bricco! We started with the charcuterie - prosciutto and salami were both delicious! My husband got pappardelle with cinghale, and I had the ricotta pillows… both were 5 stars. Our server was also very attentive and helpful. We loved it and will absolutely be back!

    We arrived early for our reservation but we were welcomed pleasantly by the host and sat at the bar for a drink. Got seated at our reserved time. Attentive bartender and waiters. Food was excellent. Food and service moved along a tiny bit too quick but we enjoyed our experience and I would recommend to others.

    I came here with a friend that I haven’t seen in years. The food was very good, they pumpkin pasta as well as the lobster one were outstanding, but our Server was intrusive, kept on interrupting our conversation tried to serve our wine and wine glasses were wet, he forgot a negroni I ordered, the rest of the service staff was very professional and polite. I would definitely go back but I wouldn’t like to have the same server again.

    Food and ambience are nice, but the service was definitely sub par. My severe allergy was not taken seriously, and the server kept asking if it was a "real allergy". We were only a table of two with a pretty straightforward order (one app, two entrees, and one side), but it took over an hour to get entees. The side never came. Good was pretty good once/if it arrived, but honestly there are so many other restaurants nearby with more friendly and faster service.

    Booked a table months in advance and was seating in the small side room with the bar. Music was so loud and the bar crowd was screaming over it to be heard. We couldn’t even hear the waiter describing the specials. We asked to be moved and we told they couldn’t accommodate us. We left and will be reluctant to go back!

    Somehow it’s energetic, but not rushed and ambience just works. Food better than our prior favorite giacomos, without the rush to turn tables. And prices in line. Staff from manager to bus help all pleasant. Reserve a table in advance, you won’t be disappointed!

    Personally do not think this is worth the money. Service was mediocre for such a nice restaurant. Apps were good but we all got steaks and they were so flavorless. Waiter never checked in with us to see how our food was so we never even had the chance to say something about us not liking our meals. Save your money and go somewhere else in the North End.

    Fabulous meal at a lively restaurant.. We were seated right on time and service was very good for a busy night. They even accommodated us with a custom, special request appetizer we had. My only complaint was they cleared plates for the two people who were done eating first and asked if they wanted coffee. while the other two people were still eating. The whole neighborhood was packed with a great vibe. Highly recommend.

    The food was spectacular, especially the ricotta pillows. Last meal worthy. But the wine choices for “by the glass” is sub-par and disappointing. A restaurant with food this outstanding should offer better wines. Most of the choices may be purchased at a Walmart or CVS. I ordered a white to start followed by a Barolo. Both upper end of price point offered. I did not enjoy or finish the white. It did nothing to compliment my meal and reminded me of airplane wine. I had to send the Barolo back, as it was nothing like the fabulous past Barolo option from Bricco. I always look forward to their Barolo and this one was questionably still good. Tasted like it had been opened the day before and totally out of character for the varietal. The waitress kindly brought another glass, but it was from the same bottle (and a half pour) so did not address the issue. But the food is fabulous!!
