Looked lovely from the outside, was busy and had a good ambience. I was delighted to see butternut squash tortelli but it was the stuffed courgette flowers that sold the place to me as I haven't had those outside Italy. They gave us a good table that was reasonably well-lit. We ordered wine (one of the cheaper options at $40!)... More

My girlfriend and I went for dinner on a Sat night. They sat us by the window and it was one of the most romantic dinners I've ever had. The service & food was amazing. From apps to dessert everything was superb. I can't emphasize enough how amazing this experience was. I would highly recommend this place.

Bricco was highly recommended by someone who's opinion I trust. We arrived at the appointed time with a party of 6 and our table was both ready for us and in a choice location. Our server was Brian - a total professional. Our meals were terrific - everyone in our party had something different and each was super. I met... More

We were looking for a great meal in the North end and found it at Bricco. Wolver, our waiter, offered great service and a great sense of humor. The manager also came over to see how we were doing. My husbands Sea Bass was delicious and my pasta was outstanding. The restaurant was noisy but I didn't choose it for... More

Based on the prices this is supposed to be a "fine dining" experience. The noise level negates any "fine dining" ambitions. Add a hockey game on the TV and you've violated every acceptable OSHA noise level standard. A TV in a "fine dining" establishment, what's wrong with this picture??? This in a place where every entree pushes or exceeds 40... More

A little loud for conversation but possible. Valet park car. Busy, even on Thursday. Restaurant is a must go - their gelato is deliciously fresh and their dry-aged beef is perfectly seasoned, cooked and served warm (just right). Sides are well-portioned for one, but ordering several to share will work too. Definitely coming back!

Our first night in Boston and we were looking for a great Italian restaurant in the North End. We found it. The food and the service were perfect. Do make a reservation as the place was jumping. Surprisingly the noise level was not bad. Our waitress, Bonnie Magee, was the best we have ever had and make a good evening... More

We loved this restaurant; we had some wine early on, then walked around Little Italy, and then came right back here for dinner. I had the grilled Octopus as an app; fantastic. The service was excellent, great atmosphere, and the food was over the top. They make their own bread and pasta. You are going to need reservations; this a... More

My husband and I loved this restaurant. We only had a chance to have one dinner out during our brief stay in Boston and we could not have chosen better. The ambiance was warm and inviting. The staff looked like they all enjoyed working there (which we find is a good sign that this will be a good experience). I... More
