Great evening. Been a while since we were there and La Briciola lived up to expectations. Surprised there was not more people. Varied menu had something for everyone in party. The grilled fish was a standout. Well-priced wine list. Perfect evening.

I've been disappointed here before, but I forgot, so I should leave a review. I had a pasta main, and the mushroom sauce was just too thick and glue-y and the flavors were sort of TV-dinner-grade.

Amazing food and service, wish it were closer to where I live! Loved the ambience, even though a nearby table had a person who spoke very loudly and the high ceilings did not dampen the sound. Can't blame that on the restaurant though!

Food was good, not great. Online wine is way out of date and not accurate. You will be seated a few inches from others. Service extremely slow. Uber has the wrong location in its database. Drivers will attempt to leave you or pick you up about 140 yards north and on the wrong side of the street of the actual location.

This is a very authentic italian restaurant. The pasta is fresh and sauces are great.
Note that they only serve beer and wine - no cocktails - but not a problem as they have a good wine list.
Food and wine are a great value.

Bummer. Our service was horrible, the food not much better than that, and the restaurant where had only two occupied tables, but they put us together so it was much noisier than it should have been. I had made a note on my open table reservation that two people at my table had a garlic allergy, but the server seemed not to know and was not at all helpful in navigating it. I would steer clear of this place.

The food was fantastic. Everyone was raving about the dish they ordered. I had the salmon it was spectacular, it was served in a piccata like sauce and was just divine. We were a party of 12 for a work party and had an amazing time, the waiter was super nice and attentive. I would definitely recommend La Briciola

Two of us had lunch today to “prospect” for our staff luncheon next week. Food was very good, service was quiet and not pushy nor rushed. I will happily bring my party of 7 next week!

A great place to eat if you want a nice sit down Italian meal before seeing Cirque du Soleil, a short walk away. The Maitre D' is kind, has mild sense of humor, and I swear he remembers my family. We eat here each year before seeing a show over the holidays.

We arrived for a late evening meal and the staff was friendly and accommodating. The food was great. We felt a little guilty being there close to closing time in a sparsely populated restaurant but that was not an issue on their end. The food and service were just as lovely as if the place had been packed.

My husband and I love this place. The food is superb; in fact, it's hard not to order our favorites and not try something new. The service is excellent and it's a little slice of heaven in an area that you wouldn't expect a restaurant of this caliber! We highly recommend it!
