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

I dined here with a friend, for a Christmas celebration. We had a table upstairs where the tables were very close together and the acoustics so bad that you had to speak loudly across your table. I felt bad for the couple next to us who were clearly dressed for a romantic meal. The food was delicious - I had... More

I don't usually take the time to write a review but I had to in this case mostly because of the outstanding service. We went with our four children ages 8 to15, who are very much at home with upscale restaurants. Before we had a chance to even ask what they might have special for children our waiter told us...

Very enjoyable dinner on a busy Saturday night. Dishes served were excellent (pasta, zucchini appetizer, cannoli). Loved the coffee! Service was decent for as busy as it was. Did not feel rushed although restaurant packed. Ambiance nice although bit loud.

Great location; great atmosphere; great wine menu; great bartender and great food. The restaurant is a bit on the noisy / lively side - so if you want a romantic meal for two or a business dinner perhaps not but if you want a great meal in a place lively buzzing atmosphere this is your place. I plan to return... More

Bricco is absolutely delicious. The duck I had rivals some of the best meals I've ever had. Expect to shell out $50-$80/person, but truly, well worth it.
