Our first visit was probably 10 years ago. These were the days before WeHa imploded to so much popularity and a slew of dining choices. We found the service then to be excruciating slow and we never returned... ...until recently. Our experience was the complete opposite. Quickly seated at small indoor table, cozy, the patio area was full even on... More

Fantastic drinks and food, not to mention staff, who cannot do enough to please. We had a group of 5 and it was just perfect. Pizza is amazing just like an Italian thin crust should be. Overall, good value especially in comparison to their "competition"

We have been​ regular customers for years. Bricco is our favorite; but Billy Grant's other restaurants are very good also.

My last experience at Bricco's was underwhelming. We were entertaining overseas business guests and were made to wait over 30 minutes for our seats on a reservation for a large group. The meals were very average with large portions and presentations basic. The staff was attentive and helpful but the tightness of the layout and the very busy atmosphere made... More

Overall I have nothing but good things to say about Bricco. The service is always great, it's a nice and busy atmosphere (prepare to sit close to your neighbors) but I have one little objection- the menu never changes. With that said, the items on the menu are delicious. I went with a friend on a Tuesday and it was... More

Nice Italian restaurant that seems to stay very busy. Make reservations or be prepared to wait. The salads are huge. The carbonara was very good. No complaints and would be happy to return.

Excellent restaurant but a bit too pricey. $80 for two pasta dishes, one app and 2 glasses of wine. So be prepared that this isn't Mama Mia's Family Italian. The menu is limited but each item is well prepared and clearly the chef is trying to put a unique spin on classics so it is not your same ol' stuff.... More

Excellent restaurant. We've been there four or five times, each outstanding. Drinks are top notch, food is outstanding, and the service is prompt, even in the bar during happy hour. Try the charred toast with ricotta and honey, one of many delicious appetizers.

I've eaten there probably 6 times now and have tried a variety of dishes and appetizers. I always​ leave the place scratching my head wondering why folks consider the place exceptional dining. I've had dishes overcooked or over seasoned for my taste and most dishes I've tried are good but not 4 star quality. My wife and kids think the... More
