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.

    Service was top-notch. We had a nice little corner table upstairs, so it felt private though the restaurant was nearly full. Food and drinks were delicious. Ruby Red Cocktail was perfect on a hot evening. Zucchini flowers were yummy but you only get 2. Ricotta pillows were delicious, but again, the serving is small and it was topped with just 1 ricotta gnudi. Gelato and bread pudding were decadent, and ironically too large to finish.

    We were seated at the outside, street dining. The weather was great so made it very nice. The waiter recommended a lobster pasta dish for my wife, she loved it. Drinks were ok but not the best we have had. My meal came out at different times so not very well planned. Price was $$$. Overall good night out with my Carino.

    Food was delicious; server was knowledgeable and helpful. Only complaint is we were still eating dinner when server asked us if we wanted dessert. It was a real rush at the end; we had been there for 90 minutes. If there is a time limit, tell your diners and ask us to be on time. We were not told we had a time limit and it ended our meal on a bad note.

    We enjoyed a delicious dinner at Bricco. The restaurant sat us early and our service was immediate. The food was outstanding as usual. We enjoyed some pasta dishes and the halibut special. The wine we chose was a great choice too. We throughly enjoyed our dinner at Bricco.

    Hostess was kind and accommodating, able to seat us near an open window in the back bar. Downhill from there. First impression was heavy driving techno music played at club level. Impossible to have a conversation without screaming. Waiter concurred that he did not like the music. After appetizers which were fine, not exceptional - meatballs 4 of 5, caprese 4 of 5, zucchini blossoms, 4 of 5 and bib salad 2 of 5. We waited for an interminable time for the waiter to return. When he finally did he brought dessert menus. We had to remind him that our entrees had yet to arrive. Finally they did, 3 out of 4 of them. Then the waiter disappeared again. After 15 minutes he finally returned and had to be reminded of the 4th entree. He disappeared again and didn't return with the final entree for another 10 minutes with a very brief apology - no offer of any type of compensation. By this time the other three of us were pretty much finished. The redeeming factor was that the waiter was very kind and polite despite the "lapses" in service. For the price I can name a dozen other North End restaurants I would recommend before even considering Bricco again.

    Bricco is a very good restaurant. Our service and food were excellent. Our only issue has nothing to do with the restaurant, but it does involve our experience. Understandably, due to COVID many restaurants now have seating on the street. It offers a nice al fresco dining option, but the North End gets VERY busy on a Saturday night, and sitting in the street (literally) means car exhausts/noise and a hundred people a minute walking by. Again, not the restaurant's fault. The food and service are worth coming for, but perhaps next time, we'll sit indoors.

    I made a reservation through Open Table a few weeks ahead of my friend’s 60th birthday. In the comments section I mentioned we would be a party of 4 celebrating this event. The restaurant went OUT OF THEIR way to make it special for us. They seated us at the best table, gave us veteran server and provided really terrific food. This restaurant made our night. So appreciative of the special treatment. Thank you and can’t wait to come back.

    Family dinner, son's 21st, party of 6. The North End was hopping, loads of energy, weather was great, windows/doors wide open. The place was packed for a late Sunday afternoon, but the service was tremendous. A wide variety of dishes ordered by the table - wild boar pasta, osso buco, veal chop, gnocchi, salmon, octopus...all of it was impeccably prepared. This is obviously a top-notch organization, didn't miss a beat from appetizers through desserts. A must for anyone who wants a higher end experience in the North End.
