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.

This Boston North end restaurant is notably one of the best. The freshest of meats, fish, poultry ,pastas and vegetables. The food is prepared expertly and served hot. The service is top shelf and adds to the greatness of the restaurant

I enjoyed my experience at Bricco. Only thing that could have been better was the seating. Our particular table was upstairs and in the back corner against the wall and was lacking space. It was a little cramped, aside from that the service and the food were both great and I would recommend to a friend

Will never go again! We sat on top of the next table to either side and were so close we had to move the table to get in and out. People's clothing and bodies knocked over a water glass on our table when they got up to leave. Completely unacceptable to be that close and upsetting to know they were overhanging our table setting and food (they were average size people).

It was so loud, we could barely hear the waiter or ourselves. Conversation was extremely difficult since we were yelling to hear each other (no we are not hearing impaired). To get to the rest room was like running a gauntlet through waiters and the crowd. I have been here several times and told my client it was one of the best in the North End. However, jamming people in to maximize their profit while reducing the experience is no longer tolerable. I was embarrassed to have made this selection for the evening.

I have been to Bricco a few times and have always loved it. This past time I was very disappointed in our service. Our waiter acknowledged that he wasn’t aware we were in his station but even after he apologized we waited 2 hours for our food while people all around us who arrived after we did, were served. I hope it was just a bad night for this waiter. When the food finally arrived, it was indeed delicious.

Went to Bricco for my anniversary . We had previously contacted Bricco to tell them about the special date. When we got there we got a very tight table in the seconds floor back room by the kitchen. I asked the hostess to change our table and she said it would be 20 min. After 40 min we finally got a table. Appetizers were amazing. The pasta dishes were OK.

We decided to try a new place in the North End for our date night - we were a bit bummed with Bricco. We ordered our wine and food, our meals literally came in under 4 minutes and mine was cold - made us wonder if they’d been sitting there plated waiting for someone to order? Then our wine came maybe 10 minutes later. Small portions for the price and comparable restaurants on Hanover. Wouldn’t go back... ambience at the bar seemed more fun maybe try that!

We loved Briccos again. It was my second time here and even though we were 45 mins early, they had a table for us on the bar side which was quaint and quieter than the restaurant side. My son had a filet and fries which were both cooked to perfection. My husband had the veal chop wrapped in prosciutto absolutely wonderful. I had oysters to start, so yummy, and the lamp chops which I think we're the best I've ever had. They were juicy, light pink in the middle and flavored perfectly. We also had a bottle of Barolo Gallinotto which was a light perfect companion. The waiter was polite, attentive and informative. Every experience is great when I visit and will go every time Im in Boston and you'll enjoy it too. The North end is always fun to go to and you can't leave without going to Mike's bakery, so good! See you again soon.

The food was wonderful. The upstairs while more quiet was nothing special. Service was very good and the steaks cooked to perfection. We just moved into the North End and expect to come back often. As this was our first visit, we will ask for different seating next time.

Waiter did not understand English enough to know what we told him. Although he was polite. Asked him to decant the wine and he just poured the entire bottle into our 4 wine glasses. Gnocchi had zero taste due to sauce being too light. My husband asked for extra Bolognase sauce but he brought him a second dinner entree!
Portions were smaller than when we were there in December. Our son and daughter in law’ 10th anniversary. Not a night to remember.

Visited during Dine out Boston week, tried the tomato soup, short rib and tiramisu. All the dishes were great!! Especially the soup and tiramisu!! Both of them were smooth and soft. The short rib is a bit unseasoned (for me), would be better with more sauce. Love the service there! Highly recommend.

We went with two other couples to celebrate two birthday and absolutely loved the meals and the wonderful energy of the place but the only issue is that it is a loud atmosphere so it can be hard to hear when there is a big table, especially for adults over 50.

we highly recommend the food including the fried zucchini and grilled octopus as appetizers.

We went because of DineOut Boston. We had to request the menu We had a lovely time. The food tasted good. But both my husband and I were sick during the night and this morning. We both had the meatball appetizer and the tiramisu desert. So I assume the problem was one of them. I was surprised and disappointed.
