This lively restaurant is always busy! The outside seating area in the warm weather is inviting and attractive. The service is always very good. However, based on our last four visits here, twice for lunch, twice for dinner, there are some inconsistencies. The biggest problem we've had here was at lunch when one of the specials was trout. My husband found it inedible and sent it back, ordering something else, but by the time that dish arrived, his appetite had disappeared. The calamari appetizer is one of our favorites. Salmon dishes are always good. Pasta dishes can be quite large! But, beware! You could break a tooth on the cannoli! Our waitress said the shells are supposed to be very hard, but none of the Italian bakeries at we have purchased cannoli match the hard shells. Stick with the sorbet!

I have lunch with a friend from high school every couple of months and this time, we chose Bricco's. We were so happy we did. I have their mustard barbecue salmon over barley with asparagus and pear and it was cooked perfectly and had the best combination of flavors. My friend had the wild mushroom pizza which is a white pizza and marveled at the flavor and mushroom combination. We both so loved our lunch, we opted for dessert. Both of us had the strawberry rhubarb crisp and it was luscious and satisfying, not heavy. The wine selections were great too. I would defintely come back.

Great Italian food in a pleasant setting. Only drawback - reservations only for parties of 5/6 or more.

As my husband said “I cannot imagine a better meal.” We hadn’t been here in several years because we don’t live in the area. Today we are reminded just how worthy this place is for a special trip. From the minute you walk in the door the service is wonderful. Everyone is attentive, pleasant and accommodating. And the FOOD! OMG. We had the kale salad, afresh and tender mix of kale, cranberries, pumpkin seeds and bacon with a wonderful dressing. I could’ve just been satisfied with that but we also had the grilled lobster and cheese sandwich (an Oprah special) which comes with a green salad, a garbanzo side salad and onion rings. Absolutely delicious in every respect!

Excellent salad to start and a marvelous gigantic and delicious pork chop topped with grilled pork belly on a bed of brussel sprouts. Yummy. The other three in the party also love the meal.
