Italian
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.

I wish they gave us the option to make a reservation for outdoor seating...especially during the quarantine. My girlfriend was unhappy to find out we were sitting inside.

In a neighbor of legendary restaurants
Bricco may be the best. Fish, pasta, steaks you can’t miss
Pumpkin tortelli is a must. Split it as an appetizer.
Not inexpensive but a quality experience.

The restaurant was good but overpriced. Open table seemed to ignore every request we made on the reservation. When we arrived the hostess had no idea we requested outdoor seating and that we were celebrating a birthday. After that they sat us in dismal dark corner of the restaurant. We complained and they moved us to a seat by the bar upstairs which was fine. But most likely will not go back.

We loved our meal and had an Unexpected person join us, the restaurant made it very easy to add one more person and just split our tables. Delicious food. Beautiful restaurant.

It was a birthday dinner, I specifically put it in to make sure when we ordered deserts at least a little candle or a “happy birthday” writing would be on there. As much as our server was amazing, I blame to management for not paying attention to details and requests of their customers.

Way over-priced for what you get. Inside was also incredibly loud and hot. Server rushed us in and out in under an hour which was pretty annoying considering the price.

Outdoor dining was comfortable and very well planned. Our waiter, wish I could remember his name, was knowledgeable, courteous and extremely attentive. The food was absolutely incredible. Delicious. Cannot wait to go back. Also looking forward to trying all of his other restaurants.....

We love Bricco and have been many times. This visit was the first time we sat at a table outside (during pandemic) We usually eat at the bar and always have amazing service. Roberto waited on us and we enjoyed a delicious meal. He provided recommendations, was warm and personable and truly was thoughtful. He never rushed us and the courses came out separately. Sitting outside on Hanover Street felt like Europe and gave us a new vibe for this restaurant. They are doing a great job adapting to the changes of life right now. We look forward to coming back each and every time. If you have never visited you must..... the espresso martini is the best anywhere!!!

Mom and sister and fiancé to celebrate saying “yes to the dress” and it couldn’t have been more perfect. The food was amazing, service outstanding and the ambiance was exactly what we were looking for. The perfect night to a perfect day! Highly recommend Bricco if you are looking for the most delicious Italian in the North end!!

Great Italian place in the North End. Wonderful atmosphere with a helpful staff. I had the veal chop and it was incredible. Only issue was the open air made it hot for inside seating but there were accommodating and moved us to a table by the window and it was great! We will be back.

Ate outside in the parking lane like many of the restaurants in the North End. Staff was working incredibly hard to make it a great experience and they did! I had the Sea bass and my companion had the Ahi Tuna. Both were incredible. We'll be back - I hope all the restaurants in the North End survive, it is such a great experience.

We had an overall great experience for our anniversary dinner. Being that it’s covid we were a bit nervous but everything turned out wonderfully. They gave us an open window seat indoors but we had a nice table socially distant and open with ventilation from the window. They brought us champagne flutes and dessert plate on the house. Very nice ambiance and service!
