Delicious Dinner

I've dined at Bricco a couple of times, but this past dinner was by far the best I've experienced. I went with a good friend of mine and we decided to split 3 appetizers and 2 pastas. It was the perfect amount of food. For the apps we had the insalata mista (one of the best in the city... read more

My boyfriend and I ate at Bricco Saturday night, Feburary 21st. We had reservations at 6:30pm. We enjoyed our dinner so much that while we were there we agreed to writing a review, something I've never done before. This was our second time eating at Bricco. I ordered the Ricotta Pillows with the truffle sauce - absolutely amazing. This was... More

I actually ate here twice in one week. The first time was with my BF on Valentines day and even though the place was super crowded, the service was top notch and our waiter very attentive even though he had a bazillion tables to look after. I think the food is good. The cappers salad was relish due to the... More

I really liked this restaurant on the north end. I had the carpaccio, which is perfect for one as an appetizer. For my main course I had the veal and it was absolutely awesome. I have only had a better veal chop in Vegas and this was very close. The service was very good and the atmosphere is pretty good.... More

With so many fine restaurants in the North End and a recommend from our hotet, I would have to say disappointed. The food was mediocre, the pasta "warm" and the price seemed high.

My husband and I have eaten at Bricco several times in the past, eating pasta. We are not eating as much pasta now, and we recently took our adult children there and were really disappointed, especially considering the cost. We ordered the gnocchi and the zucchini flowers for the table. The gnocchi was fine, the sauce not as flavorful as... More

We had dinner at Bricco on New Year's Eve and while I realize that this is not necessarily the best night to enjoy a relaxed dinner, I was clearly wrong. Our dinner was superb in every respect. To begin, our waiter was outstanding - knowledgeable, attentive and accommodating. The food was delicious. The eggplant parmigiana appitizer was the best I... More

Bricco is a favorite stop of ours in Boston whether we are attending an event at the XL Center, meeting friends or having a couples night out. We like the Hanover Street location, the lively bar and the tables spread over two floors. The food is very good although we have favorites in the octopus, scallop and eggplant appetizers; the...

Do not be fooled by the fact they have gluten-free pasta available. They do not have a separate menu and they don't educate their servers on gluten allergies. I indicated my allergy to the hostess and to our server, but it was obvious they don't take food allergies seriously here. The waitress seemed unsure of what items are gluten-free and... More

This is my go-to spot in the Nirth End for consistently delicious and authentic Italian Cuisine. The staff is top notch and very welcoming. The cocktails were great and the wine list impressive. We started with the beef carpaccio which was exquisite and not to be missed. I had the venison special and it was cooked to perfection. My friend... More
