Low-key Monday night dinner with the ladies. Intimate setting with room, not loud & nice for date night or a group. Pino the owner was short-staffed and very humbly & enthusiastically waited on us. When they got a dish wrong, it served nicely as a free pasta appetizer while we didn’t wait long for the correction. If a item isn’t on the menu- you needn’t hesitate in asking - if they have the ingredients Pino is very willing to accommodate. The fish & chicken dishes were deliciouso! More

We planned a special family dinner and this restaurant was certainly a wonderful surprise! A hidden gem! The owner greeted us at the door and had cocktails at the bar. Once seated, our waitress was prompt and knowledgeable. I ordered the seared scallops and they were done perfectly! Everyone from our party was very happy with their choices as well. We ended the evening with a coconut cream cake that was devoured! I look forward to returning to Il Molo and would highly recommend this little gem! More

This was my second time at Bricco. It is so authentically Italian. This particular night it was a bit louder than usual because the table beside us was large and loud! The food was great, but I will say the Alaskan crab cake appetizer was not good at all. The quality of the crab was really inferior. The steak was great and the baked pasta and meatballs was good.

Absolutely heavenly experience. With a part of the resteraunt closed, I’m assuming due to the fire last month, we were seated at an outdoor table with heaters overhead. It was cozy and looked quite rustic and charming. Great wine and friendly service was great but the food was exquisite. Nothing fancy, just plain superb. We had the vegetable antipasto to start, light and delicious. We then had the Penne Arrabiata and Beef Lasagne, both were perfect. The laid back vibe and simply fantastic cooking make this a must try. Bravo and thanks for a great night out. More

I have celiac. I had read the reviews about how great the gluten free food was and it was all true. We went in on a Saturday before a Bruins game at 4:30. The place was busy but they sat us right away for our reservation. We started with the fig salad. Wonderful. Had the mussel app. Also wonderful. And the gluten free sausage pizza. Very good!!! Loved the sausage. Didn't have any gluten response. Definitely will be returning. More

Anthony, our server, was wonderful! I can't remember the last time I ordered a bottle of wine and the server poured it. We ordered the arancini which my husband had never had but couldn't stop eating they were so good. The seafood with mildly spicy tomato sauce special was delicious and cooked perfectly which some restaurants couldn't accomplish with mussels, littlenecks, scallops, swordfish, and lobster and fresh thick spaghetti al dente. My husband was craving a pizza so ordered one for dinner off the lunch menu. As busy as the place became with a night Bruins game, Anthony was always there. Will return again probably when the roof top is open. More
