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.

    Amazing food experience for my wife and me. Pricey, but worth it in my opinion. Pasta is fresh, flavors are well-curated. Would travel back to Boston just to eat here again.

    It was just OK. Sat upstairs where the wait staff huddled by the bar and watched us eat with an uncomfortable level of interest. Food was average at best even though prices would have indicated something at least a little more memorable.

    Late lunch/early dinner, 4 diners Gin&tonic and vodka-tonic terrible: no alcohol taste, horrible tonic water; martinis very good 3 different pasta meals: excellent Ossobuco: excellent, but very pricey Lots of beef on menu, but ridiculously sky high prices Server very good/very personable (Diego) Can’t rate atmosphere/noise level as the time day (4-5:30) had few diners.

    We had a table by the bar and it was loud. Our waitress was very matter of fact and was not serving with pleasure. Every time she brought me a glass of wine, it was about to spill over as if it was coming in via speedboat on choppy seas. I was expecting food to be amazing considering the reputation. But each dish disappointed. The veal osso bucco was bland as was the risotto. The spinach had a smoky taste. The lobster Mac looked more delicious than it tasted as it was also bland. Finally, the pasta with veal- same thing. Portions were large though. Salad was delicious and so were the calamari fritto mixto. Not sure if we just chose the wrong thing. The filet mignon was delicious. Given this experience for $250 would not return.

    Service was top-notch. We had a nice little corner table upstairs, so it felt private though the restaurant was nearly full. Food and drinks were delicious. Ruby Red Cocktail was perfect on a hot evening. Zucchini flowers were yummy but you only get 2. Ricotta pillows were delicious, but again, the serving is small and it was topped with just 1 ricotta gnudi. Gelato and bread pudding were decadent, and ironically too large to finish.

    We were seated at the outside, street dining. The weather was great so made it very nice. The waiter recommended a lobster pasta dish for my wife, she loved it. Drinks were ok but not the best we have had. My meal came out at different times so not very well planned. Price was $$$. Overall good night out with my Carino.

    Food was delicious; server was knowledgeable and helpful. Only complaint is we were still eating dinner when server asked us if we wanted dessert. It was a real rush at the end; we had been there for 90 minutes. If there is a time limit, tell your diners and ask us to be on time. We were not told we had a time limit and it ended our meal on a bad note.

    Hostess was kind and accommodating, able to seat us near an open window in the back bar. Downhill from there. First impression was heavy driving techno music played at club level. Impossible to have a conversation without screaming. Waiter concurred that he did not like the music. After appetizers which were fine, not exceptional - meatballs 4 of 5, caprese 4 of 5, zucchini blossoms, 4 of 5 and bib salad 2 of 5. We waited for an interminable time for the waiter to return. When he finally did he brought dessert menus. We had to remind him that our entrees had yet to arrive. Finally they did, 3 out of 4 of them. Then the waiter disappeared again. After 15 minutes he finally returned and had to be reminded of the 4th entree. He disappeared again and didn't return with the final entree for another 10 minutes with a very brief apology - no offer of any type of compensation. By this time the other three of us were pretty much finished. The redeeming factor was that the waiter was very kind and polite despite the "lapses" in service. For the price I can name a dozen other North End restaurants I would recommend before even considering Bricco again.
