Boston Restaurants

Bricco

Updated 11/13/2013

Fodor's Review

A sophisticated but unpretentious enclave of nouveau Italian, Bricco has carved out quite a following. And no wonder: the handmade pastas alone are argument for a reservation. Simple but well-balanced main courses such as roast chicken marinated in seven spices and a brimming brodetto (fish stew) with half a lobster and a pile of seafood may linger in your memory. You're likely to want to linger in the warm room, too, gazing through the floor-to-ceiling windows

while sipping a glass of Sangiovese from the Italian and American wine list.

Pretty good, but expensive

North End Italian spot with upscale pretensions. Certainly not bad in food and service, but there are better such places in the area.

Overrated

I'm not sure why Fodors would recommend this place. I ate here thinking it would be good because the Best of Boston also recommended it, but I was seriously mistaken. The food was average at best, and the service was terrible. I would never recommend this place to anyone looking for good Italian food in the North End. You would be much better off going to Monica's around the corner.

North End

Atmosphere excellent, especially with tables opening on sidewalk. Fish was done quite well, good wine choices. Will return.

PASS PASS PASS

After waiting 40 min with reservation, was very unhappy with food. Service was ok waited forever, for food that tasted like it had been sitting under heat lamp. Food was plain, ordered fried olives, what were we thinking? Fodor's should remove their choice sign. Way Way overpriced.

So many better places to dine in Boston

Tried this out on Saturday night and was disapointed. Room and atmosphere are the only things this restaurant has going for it. Service was marginal and the food was mediocre. The prices were a bit much for the quality and creativity put into the food. There are plenty of other great Italian places in Boston...skip this one!
