Over priced

A blended scotch on the rocks was $12, normally would pay $8 elsewhere

Food a bit on the high side , nothing spectacular, we each had a special of the day

Service was excellent

Service and our meals were very good! They do a temperature check and entire staff wear mask, which e both appreciated. Not all restaurants are this responsible to their dinners. Table separation, in our seating situation, could have been a little better, but it worked.

This is a little gem in Old Town Bluffton, South Carolina. The atmosphere is quaint, warm and inviting. The owners Pam and Nino are very gracious, as well as our server John. Don't miss out on the grilled octopus appetizer. We spent our 21st Wedding Anniversary there and will be back once the scare of the Covid-19 virus subsides. Hang in there Pam, Nino and staff!

This was our first visit to Bricco Ristorante which sits in a very accessible part of the Old Bluffton Town area, where there is parking closer than at other places. It sits in a strip area with three different restaurants and a few shops. The menu is mostly southern Italian but the specials are more northern Italian in style. Great seafood choices and very inventive offerings well presented by your waitstaff. We found ours very knowledgeable and the quality of the food excellent. The wine list is extensive and very reasonably priced too.

Service was great along with the food. We all had different dishes and everyone loved theirs.

However, they should automatically disclose the cost of all specials when announcing them.

I loved the pear arugala salad and the gnocchi. However, my husband's veal ossa bucco, which was recommended by the server was very salty (and we are fans of salt.) He couldn't eat it. Hopefully it was just a bad night for the dish.

Dinner with friends before a local concert was very good. The service was excellent with our server being very personable, friendly, anD helpful with menu suggestions/descriptions. My grilled octopus appetizer was outstanding, very tender and seasoned perfectly. The pasta was cooked just past al dente which is perfect for me with a very lite olive oil and tomato sauce and fresh clams, outstanding, authentic Italian flavors. They have a nice selection of wine by glass or bottle at reasonable prices. Only negative was the cost of Tito’s and tonic/soda cocktails we had in the bar waiting for our friends, $10 for a small cocktail is a bit pricey for this area - JMO. We will definitely return, but won’t have a cocktail. Highly recommend.

WOW! How we've missed this gem before now baffles me. Everything you want from an Italian restaurant......to feel like family, be fed large amounts of delectable food, and drink more than you should of the best Italian wine. Bravo Bricco e grazie mille!

$44 for Osso Buco with over cooked risotto. Maybe they should tell you the price in advance. Not happy! This was one of the most overpriced, unexceptional Italian restaurants I have eaten at. The ambiance is non-existent. The next table is in your lap, so you might as well introduce yourself, because their conversation will be part of your night out.

I booked the reservation on open table and I would have preferred a 6:30 seating for six people but it stated that 7:30 was the earliest. We arrived at the restaurant and there was plenty of open tables and we could have come earlier.

we arrived on time for our reservation ,were seated in the half full main room and then waited about 10 minutes before we saw our waiter for the night. interim service was then fine. there were 4 of us . three said they really enjoyed their meals. I ordered the puttanesca which was disappointing. the deserts were very good.

We had a 5pm reservation, we wanted to make a 530p but one was not available on Open Table. I tried calling the restaurant twice, left a message, did not get a call back. The restaurant was fairly empty, with lots of open table even at 6. Get reservations in order. Your losing business. Someone has to answer the phone.
Our server was lovely and efficient. The restaurant is lovely. The food arrived promptly and hot. My octopus and calamari were yummy. My husband and our friend ordered the pasta with veggies and shrimp. It was bland, they added cheese, something we normally do not do with seafood. I would like to see larger shrimp and maybe grill them. They looked anemic and the taste was nothing special. This is our 2nd trip and will return. Looking forward to returning for lunch with friends.

First time at Bricco. It was early with only a few dinners. We were seated at a table for two that was so small that the dishes overhung the edge. We asked to move to another table and they accommodated. If they had not moved us we would have left. Be warned, all the tables are small and close together. That aside, the food and service was great and when we return we will go early and request our previous table.

Still my favorite Italian restaurant in Bluffton! Perfetto!
The owners - Nino, Pam and Ale are so gracious and make the dining experience extra special. Their Osso Bucco is awesome. The Tiberio Salad is a favorite. The Ricotta Cheesecake is wonderful. Great wine selection. Charming decor and ambiance. The staff is delightful and attentive.
