We come to Brocco often. Sometimes we dine at a table, other we stop by the bar for a few appetizers. The pumpkin tortellini dish is simply amazing! They have a great salmon dish, as well. The vibe is great, always great people and service.

My 17-year old daughter and I were visiting colleges in Boston, and the concierge at the Ritz Carlton suggested this restaurant. Apparently, they had us pegged as tourists so they seated us near the wait station. The server fawned over the guests at the next...More

We dropped in after a long day of meetings. I have to say that the staff was excellent - very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. We are seated along the side wall and despite the close quarters, we didn't really hear the conversations on either side...More

The tables are cramped and the noise level significant but the food is worth the extra annoyance. Many of the dishes are finished in a wood burning oven. Wine list is reasonably priced

I ordered the 35 day dry aged New York strip Angus steak. I had never had a dry aged steak before and was saddened that the flavor was the same as a $10 per pound New York strip I buy at the grocery store. Worse...More

Add outstanding steak and seafood to the authentic pasta menu and you get Bricco. Reservations strongly advised if you can plan ahead. If not, the full menu is available at either of the two generous bars. Great service delivered by professional staff. Highly recommend the...More

Excellent Italian food with a Northern Flare. Service was excellent. Nice atmosphere, extension wine list. One of the best in Boston's Little Italy.

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
