Very good but pricey

A very good Italian restaurant and generally reviewed as one of the best of the Northend in Boston. The dishes prepared for us were very good indeed but the waiters treated us as just one in a crowd. Great quality at a steep price.

I was lucky to get a recommendation from a local to try Bricco. The North End is full of many quality Italian eateries but. This one definitely stood out. I had the chance to sample some quality authentic appetizers plus an excellent veal Osso Bucco. Located in the heart of the North End I highly recommend for a well done... More

I know ratings are what they are, but I think the overall rating for Bricco is too low. The food was amazing. My wife and I split an appetizer, 1/2 pasta dish and a main portion and were stuffed. The service was excellent. Chris and the rest of the staff were always there, but they did not hang over you... More

A must-visit in any trip to Boston. Excellent Italian. Wonderful, wonderful pastas. Don't miss the octopus - one of the best anywhere. My favorite Italian restaurant in Boston!

Dined here with two sons tonight for dinner - was told it was popular so made reservations on Open Table two weeks ago. Most people were dressed nice but we still had shorts on from our airplane ride so I probably would have changed clothes if I could do it over. We had the Octopus for our appetizer which was...

Went to Bricco's for dinner on a Sunday night with my husband and two friends. It was very busy, but our waitor still took the time to help us choose the right wine and food. His recommendations were perfect and we had a fabulous meal. Try their duck, you won't be sorry you did.

The service is excellent with lots of loving care and attention. I had the Lamb shank prepared on a bed of Tuscan white beans and tomatoes with a brown sauce. It was delicious; as good as I have had, My wife ordered the Cingiale bolognese on pappedelle and it was also delicious. This was the second time at Bricco and... More

Hands down the best Chilean Sea Bass that I've ever had! My wife had the seared Tuna which was also excellent. Service was top notch! Highly recommend it!

We had mostly a delicious meal with really great service. Unfortunately upstairs, though not too noisy the air conditioner was either too cold or too warm, though we eventually moved tables and were very happy. My ahi seared tuna was the best I have ever had, and we live part time in the Seychelles. My husbands, burratta cheese starter was... More
