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.

    Too dark. Could barely read the menu. Have been before and liked it. This time it didn’t feel worth the cost. Food was ok but not incredible. Waiter, Artimus, was attentive. Had calamari and wasn’t enthralled with how it was prepared. Needed a better batter. Ate the wild boar paparadelle and the flat was muted. My girlfriend ate the osso bucco and it was good, not great. Noise level was very load and the bar patrons were obviously regulars and used vulgar language frequently. Very obnoxious. May return but probably just for drinks.

    Truly amazing restaurant. The food was unbelievably great, service was excellent, ambience perfect. It did not feel rushed to be there, and despite some of the tables being fairly close, it didn’t feel like people were on top of each other or competing in conversations, but instead just warm and cozy. I’m sure you can get a better restaurant experience and certainly it’s in the top tier of food I’ve ever had… in Boston, around the country and the world

    An absolutely magical dinner at Bricco to celebrate my birthday and our 27th Wedding Anniversary. Our waiter, Wolmar C. was a dream in making you feel so cared for and special. He and all the other servers were very attentive. I will come back here again and again! Our dinner was spectacular- zucchini flowers, meatballs, ricotta pillows, filet...topped off by molten chocolate cake and their signature bread pudding. HEAVEN!!! Thank you Wolmar for making our evening so wonderful!!

    Bricco is always great. Service was on point. The server knew to ask if we were headed to the Bruins game, that way he could make sure we got to the game on time. The filet was exquisite and my friend had the gnocchi and enjoyed it. They have a pretty cheap 2011 Pinot noir from Toscana that was very tasty and paired well with both dishes

    We were seated upstairs, there was an horrible fish smell, food was just ok, expected more. Ground level had an amazing ambiance, but too noisy so I was glad to be seated upstairs. Server was kind, overall experience did not met my expectations, we expected to be delighted by the food, unfortunately that was not the case to none of us (party of 6)

    We love Bricco - could not give 5 stars though as the valet situation was not great and messed us up a bit. We often choose Bricco as they have valets and the parking situation is tough without them. Came over after the Bruins game around 6:30 pm last night and valets were dismissive and said there lot was full and we should go find a spot or use public lot off Fleet. I dropped the other 5 in my group off and found the lot. Would have happily paid extra for the convenience - not in the cards last night though - disappointed is all, restaurant- staff and food were dynamite, as is typical of Bricco...

    Absolutely love Bricco, have dined many times here. This night was a little off. Apps were tremendous as always.. best meatball ever… burrata was very good. My sea bass was overcooked and wife’s Ossobuco was a little fatty. Certainly not going to deter us from coming back. One off night out of about 50 is good enough for me. Tremendous restaurant experience and the atmosphere and cocktails are always great

    This is the first time we were at Bricco. At first, we were a bit disappointed. The noise level was more than the "moderate" than were were expecting. The menu was not clearly laid out nor easy to read and navigate. But, then our server, Samir, came and demystified everything for us. His recommendations were spot-on and enabled us to enjoy a spectacular meal. While this was our first time at Bricco, it will not be our last.

    This is the third time I’ve gone to Bricco (once for my 18th birthday, once for my friend’s birthday, and now yesterday for my birthday again!) and it’s been outstanding every time! They brought over the birthday cake, and the assistant GM even gave my table a birthday shot! Bricco does such a great job every time!

    Date night dinner with my wife on a freezing Boston night. The staff were excellent moving us to a table away from the door. I ordered the Ribeye and my wife had the Tuna. The waiter did a great job recommending a wine that pairs well with both. Both dinners were excellent. The Ribeye was a perfect medium rare. The Tuna was excellent as well.
