This restaurant is superb. It offers locally sourced food, as various cheeses, and has an extensive menu. The service is consistently tops, and the offerings consistently interesting. I have eaten here many times and have never felt ill, too. I highly recommend it!

Wide array of menu options. Don't miss the lobster-havarti grilled cheese! Filling, but yummy. Pasta dishes are all good, and our friends were impressed by the authentic ragu alternatives. Good value.

We went for an early dinner. We sat there for 15 minutes before someone came to ask for drink order. Food was decent but I expected the pasta to be homemade and it wasn't.

We love sitting at the bar for happy hour. Great happy hour menu. Bartenders are always so gracious and on point with cocktails. Octopus carpaccio you must try and have an espresso martini.

Bricco Trattoria never fails to impress with its food. Everything is served fresh and hot. Billy Grant’s use of local farmers’ produce is a great feature.
