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.

What a great find! Great ambiance.
I had the gnocchi based on reviews and it did not disappoint.
My friend had the meatballs and the burata salad also both exceptional.
Our servers and waiter were also great.

We always enjoy going to Bricco and had a wonderful experience this time as well,.

The one exception which disappointed me was that we had a reservation with a request for a specific part of the restaurant (which we understand cannot be guaranteed). The disappointment was that when we arrived, the host told us to take a walk (in 5 degree windy weather) and come back in a while so he could try to get us the seating location we requested. When we returned after our frigid walk, we learned that he was just giving us lip service, did not communicate to any of the other host/hostesses - so he really had no intention of taking care of us. We were seated in another part of the restaurant and had a lovely dinner with a great waiter - but I'll never forget the host's empty promises and how he treated us.

The with the exception of the host who told us to go for a walk and come back (in 5 degree weather), so he could do his best to help us with our

Walked in and was greeted with happy faces! (Under a mask of course) We has a reservation but arrived a bit earlier to have a drink at the bar but they were able to seat us at the time so that was a bonus!
We had a great table for two by the window. We enjoyed people watching. The food was amazing.
For a starter we got the carpaccio. It was really good!
My husband ordered the NY sirloin and he said it was delicious. Juicy and perfect!
I ordered the Ricotta Pillows and I loved every last bite! So rich and yummm. Compliments to the chef! We also ordered lobster mashed potatoes to share and they were so tasty. The flavoring was right on point.
Great place. So happy someone recommended it to us earlier in the day and we were able to dine there!!

We had a delicious meal at Bricco. The service was great and they don’t rush you thru your meal.

The risotto special with white truffle was spectacular. And if you don’t end the night with an espresso martini you’re doing it wrong!

Our second time there for a family dinner to celebrate a birthday and then attend a TD Garden event. The selections of food and drink were amazing. The table had everything from traditional Filet Mignon to a Sea Bass and a special Pasta and Lobster creation that intricate and photo worthy for the presentation. A well-rounded desert and after dinner drinks/digestifs menu provided a perfect ending to a stellar experience. The menu is pricey, but the value and quality is well worth it and the overall experience is what a family, or couples, hope for in a night out in the North End. This will always be high on our list for any occasion.

New Years Eve dinner. Place was jam packed...but it was a good vibe for celebrating. Service was excellent, table was ready. Drinks took a little longer but hey ...no big deal. Food was a little lukewarm. But delicious.

Good food and friendly service. The wait staff was very helpful, but got our order wrong at every course. The overzealous bus person actually tried to take my plate as I was eating. This restaurant follows NO COVID SAFETY measures at all!! The tables are packed together, there was a huge crowd at the bar, and the bartender almost never had his mask on.

We had dinner there while in Boston, it’s one of the best Italian in town. Food is excellent and service exceptional. Note however it is very very loud and you can’t hear your friend next to you if they are at maximum capacity. The tables are very close one another which is not good in Covid Times. All in all a good experience.

Our server Patty was the absolute best. Despite having too many tables (in my view), she was amazingly attentive and professional. You can tell she’s been doing this for a while. She seemed to know exactly when we needed her and she made us feel very welcome.

The food was delicious and scene was very energetic. My only concern was that the tables seemed awfully close. We will go back but maybe not until after the cases drop.

The food was exceptional. We “grazed” through 3 artisanal pastas-wild boar- veal and spinich pillows and pumpkin tortellini. My impression as a foodie is that Bricco doesn't have a “bad night” everything was fantastic.

We had a great meal! The the mussels were spicy and tender. Our risotto with shrimp, prosciutto and asparagus was amazing and the bread pudding was excellent. If you like sweet and chocolaty espresso martinis they have a good one for you. If you prefer fresh and subtle drinks try their Cosmo. Excellent experience!

Great experience overall considering the pandemic. We showed up at our reservation time (I was meeting my children, I drive 3 hours from Vermont, they drove from south of Boston) and we got there at the exact time and were seated immediately. Service was great and there were at least 3 people seeing to our needs. Great wine, great food, and one delicious crème brûlée to split three ways. Fantastic!

One of my favorite restaurants in Boston. Always a great experience when we go. We arrived slightly early and our table was ready about 2 minutes after we arrived which was nice since there was no room at the bar, and they don’t have a big waiting area. We were greeted with waters and the server came over pretty quickly to grab our drink order which was delivered promptly. Our appetizer came out quite fast and was awesome. We had ordered our entrees and I’m not sure if the server didn’t fire them, but we did wait quite some time for those. When they did come out, my wife’s entree was great. Mine seemed a little undercooked. I ordered the veal chop medium, and it came out medium rare. The flavor was great although I was a little freaked out about the texture of it. My fault I did not send it back. The sides were great. This little hiccup will not prevent me from going back.

We enjoyed our appetizers, entrees, and drinks. The food was very good, although a little bit pricey for the quality. Service was very warm and accommodating. One concern is that the room was too crowded for pandemic times, even if the restaurant website says that social distancing was being followed. I am glad we ate on the second floor, because the first floor was packed.
