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.

We had the worst server I’ve ever had at a restaurant. He rushed us the entire meal and was extremely rude. He interrupted our conversation several times in order to keep the meal moving which made for an awful experience. I specifically asked in my reservation to have cake with a candle to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday and instead we were not even given the option. As soon as we finished with our entrees he presented us with the check!! It was as if he was kicking us out! We were never even offered dessert. It’s upsetting because we were planning stay to have dessert and drinks after dinner. Instead, we left and had dessert somewhere else because of how rude this server was. Great food, awful service!!!

Service staff was not attentive, and they really were not that busy. The food sounded better than it tasted and the portions were small for the value. Seemed like a North End tourist destination, but I wouldn't go back.

It looks like I’ve added tables recently. It is so crowded, and you can’t move, and the food quality seems to have gone down also. The service has gone down over the last year or so. We us to love this place it’s just not. The same, sadly.

Just an awesome experience. Food was absolutely spectacular and highly highly recommended octopus appetizer. Competes with the octopus I’ve had in Greece. Fun vibe and staff was extremely friendly. I must go when in Boston!

Amazing ahi tuna, outstanding service, and hood cocktail and wine selection. Definitely recommend this restaurant. Reservations are strongly recommended. Though we were told by our hotel attire was casual, I would say no jeans and dress is really smart casual.

Fortunately, we reserved a table at 5:00, because by the time we finished dining the restaurant was full. It’s easy to see why: the service was pleasant, efficient, and helpful and the food was outstanding. The wine selections and the guidance from our waiter in choosing wine was the highlight of the evening. Also, do not skip dessert. The warm chocolate cake with hazelnut ice cream shouldn’t be missed. In fact, the table seated next to us began to drool when the dessert was served.

Always excellent. For an Italian restaurant, the steaks are out of this world. For any restaurant for that matter. Excellent octopus appetizer. And the bread, as always, is the best. This is not an inexpensive place, but it is worth the money.

The food was fantastic- the boar parpadelle was one of the best dishes I’ve eaten in a long time. Our server was great but it was a very long wait for the mains to arrive.. we were pretty disappointed that we couldn’t sit outside because it was so loud inside that we could barely hear each other. All in all, the food absolutely worth it but not sure I’d be up for that atmosphere again. I prefer a more chill feeling experience

Bricco is a “hot spot” but honestly yes good food, unfortunately the noise level is a bit high, lighting is poor ( noticed a few patrons use their phone for added light) we were sat at a table with a beach on one side that when you sat you sunk down that it was not comfortable. The waiter was good not overly talkative and hard to hear because of the noise and mask. Again good food but I believe walk off Hanover st and will find better.

Bricco is my go to spot and as always it didn’t disappoint! We ended up sitting at the bar instead of a table since there were only 2 of us. Food and vino were yummy as expected! Thanks one million ✌🏽

The food was fantastic. Shrimp scampi octopus was amazing great salads wild boar pasta yummy veal chop was delicious. Excellent chocolate mousse had very good Chianti. However the Cremer brûlée was cold the service is where they need to improve. Wait staff should engage the table not just to the person who made the reservation

We took our daughter and her new roommate after Berklee Convocation to celebrate. We were seated up stairs in the back but the room was nice and airy. We had the Frittata Mista with calamari, scallops and shrimp which was delish. The burrata was good but not that special. I had a veal chop that was done perfectly. I ordered the mushrooms on the side which were delish but pricy for the small amount. My husband has the paradella pasta which was very tasty. Very nice wine list. The service was outstanding. Our waitress was excellent and made the experience. Highly recommend.

No valet parking anymore so as a result I was late because it took 28 mins to find parking. I was only allowed to order from the late night menu. Espresso martinis were extremely watered down, the meatballs tasted like canned meatballs and the shrimp scampi tasted like fish soup unfortunately. Suffice to say it was a huge letdown

We had a tight area around our setting but we had fun and enjoyed the experience. We asked to rush our meals because we had to get to the concert, so he stakes and chicken selections would take much longer, so I ordered fish.
