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.

    The atmosphere was lovely and although the Veal Ossobuco was good, we expected the food to be more delicious than it was since this restaurant was quite expensive and highly rated. I think I’ll just stick with the less expensive restaurants from now on.

    Caesar salad was warm and the lettuce was soggy. Lobster in one meal was cold although the pasta with it was great. Steak was good. Not great. Overall just an average meal maybe even slightly below average. Service and ambiance was terrific. Would not consider going here again due to the underwhelming meal.

    Everything was great except the two top tables are too small and you are almost in the next party of diners lap since it’s along a bench. I will come back but try for a window seat since those two top tables are much larger.

    Food was fine, but portions were pretty small - I understand this is normal for authentic Italian restaurants, but the value in the food didn’t make up for it unfortunately. We were also both rushed by our server. Again, understand this is normal in the North End to push through reservations, but our family was unfamiliar with the menu and could not be ready to order everything within 8 minutes of sitting.

    We tried to go in without a reservation and the bouncer at the door told us we couldn’t go in because we had to have one and there are no seats at the bar. I walked away and decided to look at open table and found 3 open seating times that were immediate… I reserved and went in for dinner. Not sure why we were turned away by the bouncer when they clearly had tables open and advertised on opentable.

    Very good experience at a go-to restaurant. Service was a little slow at the beginning but once food orders were placed, all went efficiently while allowing time for our group to converse. Food quality was very good as with all my previous experiences at Bricco. Can’t go wrong here!

    I've been going to Bricco for close to 20 years and it's my favorite of Frank's restaurants. The food is consistently amazing. However, our service last night was terrible. Not sure what was up with our server, everyone is entitled to a bad day, and I mention this because in the 50+ times I have eaten there over the years, the service is always attentive, and timely. If our section, or the restaurant was slammed, I could understand. However, it was absolutely not busy.

    When we arrived at the restaurant we used valet. Such a great option as parking is difficult and more expensive so I would suggest you do valet at the restaurant. Our table was ready when we were arrived and we were greeted by the meter D and two hostess staff members I asked for a specific table and they honored it, our server Donaldo  was better than superior I would suggest asking for him. He made suggestions that we normally wouldn’t have ordered very pleased with all of the food. The meatballs are a must the calamari was subpar. The bone in ribeye cowboy style was the best steak I’ve ever ever had we ordered Caesar salad bruschetta and pasta dishes nothing was disappointing. I feel as though the prices were as expected. The vibe in this restaurant would be excellent for a date night or a family gathering. The view on the first level is fun. We love this restaurant in the north end. Excellent time.

    The appetizer of fried calamari, onion, bat scallops was absolutely gorgeous with the wine wine, sauvignon blanc, from Puglia and Napa followed by pasta and meatballs which were presented well and tasted even better than it looked! Will revisit Bricco. Especially the bread freshly baked down stairs and home made marinara in their store. Si we got a lot dine on an Easter Sunday!!!

    Bricco is absolutely delicious and the service is impeccable. I am a short rib lover and I can say I had the best I’ve ever had at Bricco. My only complaint is that the noise level is pretty high, however. I realize that is probably something that can’t change.

    Food quality was terrific but Portions were small. Our server was great. Was expecting something more reasonably priced in north end which it was not. This is definately a fancier place in north end so be prepared to pay $$$$ top dollar for pasta! music was a bit too loud for a lazy Sunday afternoon but it wasn't terrible.
