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.

I would rather say Bricco is terrible so I can have it all to myself and not have to make a reservation but that wouldn't be fair. Bricco is my favorite restaurant in the North End hands down. If you go to Bricco you will need to have an espresso martini; it is by far the best in all of Boston (I would challenge anyone who disagrees). Cheers.

It was our wedding dinner (we have just gotten married that day) and were looking to close the day with a fantastic meal. We previously stated this in the Open Table App comment section when booking the reservation but when we arrived the table assigned to us was poorly located - we asked for a table upstairs since it was a special occasion but the hostess told us it might take a while. As we were hungry we were seated but asked to be changed once a table became available. It took 5 minutes and we moved upstairs - from that moment on our experience was fantastic and most of it thanks to our waiters Roberto and Esteban. They treated us like royalty (even without them knowing we have gotten married earlier in the day).
Food was amazing and our wine choice was perfect!

Bricco may be be my new North End favorite restaurant. Not only was the food excellent, but the service was way above par and the atmosphere was great, not touristy like many other North End restaurants. I highly recommend.

The aged NY sirloin was really outstanding contaning complex layers of flavors of marble fat. The texture was tender and delicate, juicy, and impressive. Looking foward to try other stuff here.
Something can be improved: more light please. Give us better views on foods and the lay out. BTW, I really wanted to have a glass of muscat.

Excellent food and service. They helped design a multi-course vegan meal for a person in our party and that's not common in the north end

7:30 is not an early enough reservation for the new 9:30 PM closing rule. We were sat 20 minutes late, ordered our food at 8:15 and didn’t receive it until 9:00 PM. we had to rush to eat before getting kicked out at 9:30. If the food didn’t take 50 minutes to come out, we would’ve ordered dessert/espresso martinis to end the night.

Third time we have come here - always for a special occasion when we come to visit our son in Boston. We are from NY so we know good Italian food and this is the best!! The wait staff is well trained and friendly and the ambiance is excellent. The weather was so nice the dinning room doors were opened and we could interact with people walking by on the sidewalk. Great time, great meal.
