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.

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.

My girlfriend and I had an incredible time celebrating our anniversary here. The service was top notch, and the food was amazing. Highly recommend the farfalle with lobster meat and black truffle. Definitely worth the price!

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!!!

We have been here many times and have never been disappointed. The food and service is always excellent. The tables are very spread out due to social distancing and we felt very safe eating inside the restaurant. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Selected this restaurant based on reviews and it did not disappoint! Service was outstanding from start to finish; timing between courses was perfect, wine service was on point, and just great wine and food suggestions from our service team overall. We started with the Octopus and Crudo; both were tasty but the Octopus was fantastic!! For entrees I had the Veal Chop and my friend had the Braised Short Ribs. Again, outstanding flavor and the veal chop was tender, perfectly cooked, and had a wonderful presentation. We weren't planning on dessert, but we decided to indulge. I had the flourless chocolate lava cake and my friend had the creme brulee. She enjoyed some Grappa and I had an Espresso Martini. The music was upbeat but just quiet enough that we could chat. Overall it was a great ambiance and dining experience! All Covid protocols were followed and tables were spaced out very well. They even had branded hand sanitizer on each table. I would definitely go back again!

The parpadella pasta with the wild boar was outstanding as was the calamari appetizer. The bread and 3 dips was delicious and a very nice touch, rather than just the standard bread and oil.

Service was impeccable. We ordered the beef carpaccio and there was a grocery sticker (probably from the lemon garnish), no big deal. My boyfriend has a shellfish allergy and there was definitely some cross contamination as he started to get a very scratchy throat halfway into his sea bass meal. Could be a little more careful here. Otherwise, Beef short ribs were amazing as usual

The place was very crowded but very well managed. The food I would give a 4 stars but may have been an off night. My son got a filet but it was fatty which was disappointing. The Caesar salad was pretty but really had no flavor...and the popovers were cold and meh. my husband and I both enjoyed our dinners but it seemed we got lucky.
