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.

    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!

    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.

    Had a wonderful time with my girlfriend for her birthday. Food was delicious, we had an awesome table right next to the window which was fun and the server was super nice, knowledgeable and always available when we needed him. Bday desert was the perfect ending to the night.

    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.

    Celebrated my wife's birthday and from being greeted at the door to our departure it was a flawless and exceptional evening. The service was impeccable and the food delicious and beautifully presented; including the surprise dessert our daughter arranged to have delivered. The carpaccio and tonno apps were excellent as was the Amatriciana and the Duck duetto. we'll be back! ~Mark

    Took my cousin for dinner to celebrate his graduation from college. I'm from New York, he's from Rhode Island and a new resident of the city. He suggested a place closer to his apartment, but I wanted to see what the North End was all about. As someone who works in fine dining out east on Long Island, I thought the service was fantastic and the ambiance, though very loud, was perfect. Never a bad thing to see a place jam-packed on a Tuesday night We each had an espresso martini, which was excellent (the Frangelico is a nice touch), split meatballs, and had the duck and the pork shank. I ordered a round of limoncello, which I can only assume is homemade and would be shocked if it wasn't. Really great stuff. I tend to not like to return to places in big cities with so many other places to try, but I would most definitely recommend.

    Our waiter was weak. He was affable enough, but seemed annoyed when asked for more info on some of the menu items and preparation. But he was not very attentive to us and when our food did arrive is was lukewarm. When told this, the waiter and staff took back our meals, and once reheated they were actually quite good. However, there was no initial apology for the cold meals and the length it took for our meals to come, and only when the reheated meals arrived did we even get a perfunctory "sorry". Very disappointing given the restaurant's reputation and price point.

    The food and the service were very good. Everyone in our group really enjoyed what they ordered. However the ambiance leaves little to be desired. The club music thumping the background was distracting and unpleasant. Further, the extremely tight seating was also disappointing. We were a mixed group in terms of ages (20's to 50+) and everyone found the volume of the music and the choice of music distracting from what was a delicious meal. I want to recommend Bricco for the good food, but with a huge caveat regarding the atmosphere of the restaurant.

    This was my second time to Bricco and I loved it even more than the first. The food reminded me of my Nonna in Italy’s cooking (specifically the gnocchi). Everything is so savory and the pistachio semifreddo for dessert is amazing. My waitress Patty (or Pam) was a sweetheart and made my experience even better.
