Italian
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.

Great experience. Have been to Bricco several times, and the variety in food and drink keep us coming back. Burrata app was fresh and each pasta dish was, as always, cooked to perfection. Best espresso martini in the city!

This place is amazing!!! The meatballs appetizer and agnolotti dal plin were my favorite dishes of the night. The agnolotti had an amazing and memorable truffle cream sauce - so amazing that I’ll be back for more!

The appetizers were amazing (polenta and shrimp scampi)
The nhoque was delicious. I make this at home ( very close to homemade) I could do without the extra cheese they put on top( this dish does not need it) The sea bass was the best fish dish my husband has ever had (on a scale from one to ten, this fish was a fifteen (15).

Our night was wonderful. The food was fantastic and the waiter was so nice and funny and great at moving our night along. This wouldve been a 100% 5 star experience had we not been left sitting for over an hour after finishing our dessert and our after dinner drinks. We had our drink glasses cleared and still sat with water glasses for 45-50 minutes before having to ask our waiter for the check. The check was not delivered for another 20-25 minutes after asking. Unfortunate to end such a great night on a bad note this way.

My husband and I have eaten here many times over the past decade and probably 5 to 10 times this summer. The host and hostesses at the front always do their best to put us in our favorite spot which is usually at the end of the bar by the sidewalk, but this year was at a table by the sidewalk. The bartenders always make my favorite Doli martini with muddled mint to perfection. (Yes I’m probably high maintenance...)
Francisco was our server this year and was so amazing in every way. We always look forward to having him as our server -he is always attentive, yet not hovering or making us feel rushed in any way. He always goes over and above and usually remembered what we wanted before we even told him.
Although I do love the lobster ravioli at Trattoria, we come back to Bricco for the ambience and excellent service.
Thank you, Francisco and everyone for making our favorite restaurant what it is. It’s getting chilly and it’s time to take the boat back down to littler latitudes, so until next summer, Grazie!! ❤️

I went to Bricco on a Saturday night and minus having to wait 15 min after our reservation for our table, I have nothing but incredible things to say! The wait was not bad, either, for I’m sure it’s due to COVID and new regulations. The zucchini flowers were incredible, my filet was cooked just right and their espresso martini was the best I have ever had. I can’t wait to go back!
