We just had a fantastic dinner for two at Bricco's in the North End of Boston. The wines by the glass were great (we tried three different ones) and each course was better than the next. My wife had the chicken and I had a buffalo steak with a crust to die for. It was cooked to perfection. Of course,... More

On Christmas Eve, 2016, we had reservations for 6 for when they opened and enjoyed a pleasant holiday dinner among friends. There was a slight wait, outside in the cold, for the restaurant to open but it was a relatively warm day. Perhaps because we were first in, we were sat at the front of the restaurant by the window.... More

Concierge at the Lenox recommended Bricco. We were greeted warmly and immediately seated near the fireplace in the bar. A bit noisy but the number of locals suggested repeat clientele. Emilio is a pro and we were sufficiently confident to ask him to pair a wine with our entree selections. Dishes were fresh, flavorful and at appropriate temperature. All in... More

There are so many Italian Restaurants in North End and we were so happy to stumble into this one! It was crowded and we found a place at the bar. The food was absolutely incredible, we loved it! Service was great and the barkeeper knew what he was doing. Would love to come back!

The concierge recommended this place and we loved every course. The fresh pastas are delicious. We shared a few appetizers and it was all very good. Be sure to ask to be seated upstairs as the lower floor is very noisy!

At Bricco on a Friday night. Service was excellent, felt welcomed and comfortable. The wine selection was great and the wine we drank was also very good. Our first course was the Zucchini Flowers, which we greatly enjoyed. Unfortunately when the mains came they were not up to that same standard. The Gnocchi were quite good, very light and delicious.... More

We had a really nice dinner and very friendly waiter. It's wise to book in advance, since it is a popular restaurant. The food was great. We shared some starters and had some pasta's for entree. I will definitely go back when I'm in Boston.

I went to Bricco, after dining on oysters at Union Oyster House. I really enjoyed the bar area at Bricco-the wine and appetizer selection. We tried the octopus-dry roasted with ginger, with purple potatoes, and the string bean salad. Also, we tried the meatballs-served with fresh ricotta. Both appetizers were very good. I enjoyed the Falanghina white wine, as well.... More

This place was recommended by the hotel as you can reserve a table and serves good food!! It really was a fantastic restaurant!! Being Mediterranean there aren't many places that can make pasta and risotto like we do...but I'll give it to Bricco, food was fantastic! Fantastic choice of wines too...choose Italian (expensive, but divine!) It was also our friends... More

This restaurant came highly recommended by 2 different local hotel concierges(The Ritz-Carlton and THe Hyatt Regency). This was my second time dining here. The food, the service, and the atmosphere were great. We ordered 2 of the evenings specials and they were excellent. One was a Mushroom, Truffle, and Asparagus Risotto. The other one was a Pistachio crusted Lamb. Our... More

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
