Went for my office holiday party. Staff was very friendly, helpful, knowledgable. The food was awesome. Caprese salad app (how could you go wrong?) and a wild boar ragu that was amazing. Everyone enjoyed their food and the atmosphere immensely. We all walked away stuffed and a bit tipsy... :)

Reservation were made 2 days ahead of time, we got an 8:45pm seating. Sounds late for some but you certainly want to explore the North End, this seating time gave us plenty of time to do just that. Arrived and were seated promptly, upstairs on the 2nd floor. We were one table shy of window seating. Tables were beautifuly set.... More

All our food was delicious. Fun vibe, good energy in restaurant. Very knowledgeable waitstaff. They don't make a big deal of it - but these people hand-make gluten-free pasta daily! If you are celiac, this is such a treat. Best tasting pasta i've had in 10 years. If you are celiac, they can suggest sauces that are gluten-free. Not cheap,... More

We enjoyed a well appointed table with wonderful service from an Italian waiter, which really added to our experience. The food was delicious, but not your ordinary fare. Dishes were fresh and light, compared to more traditional restaurants, which we really enjoyed. The bread/bakery was outstanding. We really loved the eggplant and fresh catch that evening. We would have certainly... More

Very telling how most reviewers are visitors, not locals. We stayed at Bricco Suites, and were told if we dined in their restaurant, we would get the best table in the house. I explained this to the staff as they seated us in the WORST seat (despite making a reservation with our room #) next to a pole on and... More

Lovely Italian restaurant on Hanover Street in the North End. The food was lovely (although portion sizes were enormous), service discreet and well managed and the atmosphere was almost like being in Italy.

We had a wide range of items, and they were all superb. The burrata appetizer is a must. The gnocchi were light pillows of heaven. The tiramisu tasted like Italy. The cocktails before dinner were outstanding. They did not rush us even though it's a busy restaurant. A must try.

We spent a few days in Boston before heading to Canada and had once before had an excellent meal in the Italian section of Boston. This trip we let the hotel select and they suggested Bricco. The restaurant is very popular but after our meal we couldn't figure out why. I had veal which was over marinated and the gentleman... More

The food was really good, but our waitress was clearly too busy, and the aircon on the first floor was simply too powerfull and way too cold. We were really freezing. Other guests managed to move to other parts of the restaurants, but when we tried we were told eveything was occupied. Several guests complained over the ac, but nothing... More
