I can't think of any improvement that can be made. the pasta was homemade, sauces were amazing. The bread is fresh from their own bakery. One warm nights the large windows are opened to the street which takes you into the neighborhood typical of a small town restaurant in Italy.

Don't be put off by the fact that it's on the main tourist street. It's not a tourist trap and full of locals. Enjoyed a delicious dinner at the bar. Tried a number of specials. The figs and morels were very good but the wild boar pasta was the highlight. All washed down with a 2011 Vietti Barolo which drank... More

This selection (the boar) was outstanding but so was everything else. A lot of details nailed. My kind of place. Very social and loud so you can actually laugh with your company and eat without wondering if the "clang" of a fork dropped on the plate is going cause a stir. Service was very good and the meal was outstanding... More

We were two on a Friday night. We booked at 3.00pm and managed to get an 8.45pm sitting (though they seated us at 8.20). There is a bar if you're too early or people aren't being disgorged quickly enough. When we finished the meal and left there were still people waiting for their sitting late in the evening. This is... More

Tender and scrumptious Osso Bucco. Nice atmosphere and very busy. Reservations a must. Upstairs were very nice private dining rooms while downstairs was open room with attentive waiters. Very good. Two people ran $125 without alcohol.

I had a fabulous experience at Bricco. We were seated at a lovely table looking out at the bustling North End. I shared with our waiter, Wolmar, that it was my birthday and he simply took the menus out of our hands and said that it was his pleasure to serve us. Each dish he brought out was absolutely delicious... More

My colleagues and I went to Bricco last week for a team outing. We had a party of 10 and were seated comfortably in the main dining room. We shared a variety of appetizers- my favorite was a fig and prosciutto dish. For an entree I ordered the ricotta pillows. It was delicious - tender pasta, lots of butter, mushrooms... More

I bring clients and family here every trip to North End Boston. The handmade pastas fantastic, the classic ossobuco a staple choice, but you can't go wrong here. Was here with business associates this Wednesday and we had one of my favorite servers, (Carena?), she makes everything sound so sexy, we had to have the morel stuffed mushrooms, wonderful. Along...
