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.

The service and food was excellent! Glenn really made our experience wonderful and the food was out of this world good! One of the best gnocchi I’ve ever had. I’ve missed dining in the North End and this was a great return! Looking forward to coming back soon!! Highly recommend!

the hostess was super rude when we first walked in. Later on we learned she is always moody. Our waiter however made up for the initial bad experience.
Food was amazing as always!
If I didn't know the food was that great! it's my third time going, I would have left because of the hostes

The food was outstanding -- best proscuitto we've ever had, even when we've visited Italy. Our server, Wolmar, knew the menu and wine list inside and out, made excellent recommendations and was the perfect balance of attentive so that we could enjoy our meal and our conversation but never feel either neglected or overwhelmed. We will be back!

Pre-Mother’s Day lunch. We got an excellent table and the food was great. We sampled a lot of things from all over the menu but I guess seeing a single woman walk in with two kids meant no big alcohol-loaded tab so our server was pretty scarce and actually forgot one of the items I’d ordered. We all know the type.

These people are too snobbish to place the word, "spaghetti," on the damn menu. So, just like ravioli has become, "pasta pillows," now they have some new damn word for spaghetti. The only pasta I don't care for is spaghetti. The first menu item looked pretty good. I was spaghetti.

Our server Vovo was again great and his wine recommendation was right on. Octopus starter was a great, so the risotto. Risotto is always updated depending on available ingredients and never disappoints. Bricco, next to Mare is our favorite restaurant in the North End.

Delicious entrees and bread. Server was attentive and friendly. Portions are small so you don’t leave feeling stuffed to the brim, although they’re still pretty pricey.

Restaurant was clean, staff from the host stand to the server was incredible. We had Voula and she was absolutely perfect. We come here monthly from Maine, and after service with her; we’ll be back twice more they now.

While we were dining a beautiful violinist came to the open window and performed happy birthday to another couple that was dining. It felt as if we were really in Italy, and it was quite a captivating experience.

Server Michael was perfect - attentive without rushing us. The short ribs over polenta is what we travel 2000 miles for, they are amazing: tender and flavorful and a generous portion. Also tried the pork tenderloin which was served with watercress and cooked to perfection. The dessert plate was impossible to pass up. The bread pudding was outstanding. We love Chef Nello!

The food and service was amazing! However, I was seated at 815 for an 8pm reservation at bar seating. Would have preferred a table, but did not say anything about this. The quality of the food and service made up for it.

Service was good and the appetizers were great we ordered Ossining bucolic and they totally messed the meal up. They just poured a can of tomato sauce on top. No celery carrots and onions. No flavor at all. Very disappointed.

We always have a great time at Bricco. Their service is second to none, with attention to detail. Enjoyed a new bottle of red wine at our waiter’s recommendation- Amarone Monte Zivo. Just one word, delicious!!! Grazie Mille!

We had an excellent anniversary dinner at Bricco. The food and service was impeccable. We had a great table for 2 by the window and the servers were very attentive.

My wife and I had a poor experience at a different Italian restaurant and she was initially hesistant to go. But Bricco came through like a champ and is now one of her favorite places.

Was fortunate enough to visit on one of the first warm Spring days in April, so outside seating on Hanover St. was fantastic. Inside the restaurant would have been too cramped and loud for a romantic dinner. Our Server (Michael) was fantastic, and his recommendations were spot-on. Dinner prices are up there, but not out of character for the area. Drinks are way overpriced but the pours were healthy. Portion sizes were mixed but we didn't leave hungry. Food quality and presentation were excellent. Would I go back? Absolutely.

Love this restaurant and even more so now that we can dine outside. Great authentic food. Fabulous drinks and the wait staff is outstanding. In fact all of Mr. DePasquale's restaurants are incredible. Dining at anyone of them is a great experience.

The service at Bricco is great but our waiter had no personality at all. The food was cold snd portions are not big. My husband got the pasta special with lobster. The lobster was in the shell, hard to remove and the piece was about two inches long. So so very disappointing. There are so many better restaurant in the north end!! Drinks were good, thank god. Don't bother going!!!
