I went there once with a party of 4 and it was good - I didn't even know the restaurant was there especially with all the road construction. Everyone in my party was pleased with their food.

A little pricey but definitely a great meal. Had a scallops dish and it was cooked to perfection. Had a wonderful atmosphere. Small but classy. My girlfriend ordered a drink from the bar and said it was excellent. You get what you pay for.

You'll always have enough for your meal and lunch the next day. The calamari and lobster bisque are my top two items from this menu. Dined in many times and I have to say not always the best service but we've returned. I think there are better Italian restaurants in Waterbury but it's a tough market. I still recommend this...

Nice restaurant and food was delicious. First time here and made reservations - glad we did as it seems to get busy! Portions are huge! You will be taking home leftovers for sure! Sangria was delicious and prices are reasonable. Friendly staff! Will definitely be returning in the future!

You can bring your family and sit in the restaurant or go as a single or couple and sit in the bar area. Nice atmosphere and delicious lobster bisque. Apps and drinks can fill you up if you want something light. The dinners will fill the big eaters.

While in Waterbury for dinner a coworker chose Brass City Bistro for lunch. We were all quite Surprised at what a great place this was. Kind of small and maybe well known to the locals we were quite happy to have found it. The menu options are beyond what I expected and the food was very good. Lots of great... More

Been here many times and always great food. Onion soup is huge, thick and drowning in cheese. Steaks and roast beef are tender and sides are really good. Italian dishes are huge portions and I love the eggplant and chicken parm. Stuffed shrimp are also excellent. We all leave with doggy bags every time.

It's mediocre Italian food. Nothing special. The service was "meh". The prices are expensive for the quality and service. I won't go back there.

BCB will never disappoint you! I will admit, they are a bit pricy but the portions are large. Some of my favorite include; their sangrias, soups, brushetta and chicken franchaise. My husband loves their scallops also. All servers are super friendly and helpful. Popular place, you may need a reservation.
