Separate from our usual fantastic food (loved the new onion soup -held the bread- WOW) ...John Mariano ALWAYS ensures our experience is personal, memorable, and all around fantastic. Thank you, John!

Super crowded and a little loud. Cesar salad was a bit too lemony. One of my favorite places to go so will definitely be back.

This was our granddaughters birthday, and she wanted to go to Bricco Restaurant. All of the ladies had Chicken Malinase . Having had this dish previously, we knew we would thoroughly enjoy it, and we did. Our waitress was very pleasant and efficient. We all had a wonderful time.

Our server was fantastic. Attentive and friendly. The ambiance was great and the food was generally good. The shrimp that were added to a salad were over-cooked. Overall, a nice experience. Would go back.

One of the most sought after tables in WH center, Bricco's is busy 7 days a week. Their pasta dishes are amazing (Baked rigatoni my personal favorite). But they're so much more than pasta. Bread, salads, fish, wine and ambiance are all outstanding.

I love coming here. It is a great dining experience from the arrival to the departure. Everyone we encountered made us feel welcomed and appreciated. Melissa C our server was fabulous. She was very efficient and so nice. We felt like having her join us for lunch. She was very helpful as we selected our lunch and patient with our pace. I also like the teamwork you see within the restaurant...everyone helps and everyone cares!
Thank you!

This is my go to place anytime someone asks where we should go for dinner. Bricco now offers brunch and as I expected it was Devine! I had the caramelized grapefruit with fresh berries and powdered sugar and challah bread French toast with fresh berries and cannoli cream!

Bricco has been one of our favorite restaurants for years and continues to be reliable in food preparation and service. We decided to take our son, his wife and their 20 month-old son (sometimes a risky proposition) for a New Year's Day dinner to start the year off. Our waitress was wonderful, the food was great and our grandson was flirting with a number of other lady diners who found him adorable. We had alerted them to the fact that we needed a high chair and, though the spaces are tight, they put us at a table with enough room and were very accommodating by bringing him out a cheese pizza quickly while we were still enjoying cocktails and appetizers. We started with their crispy calamari and an order of whipped ricotta which came with delicious bread...both excellent as were the entrees and we finished with one apple crisp and one chocolate cake. Keep up the good work, Bricco.

Top restaurant in the area ! Always have a gteT meal . What I liked was that they didn’t jack up the prices because it was New Year’s Eve. Also that we could make a reservation is ideal , not just on New Year’s Eve but please do it all the time! Everything about this restaurant is a winner !!!

Everything was perfect except no one acknowledged my husbands birthday which was noted on the reservation. Disappointed in that. Don’t ask if you ignore the special occasion.

We have tried every restaurant in W.H. and I have to say Bricco's is the best all around restaurant in the area.
You can tell the owner Billy takes a lot of pride in his restaurant, you'll see him always working on his menu and takes the time to talk to his patrons, which we love.
The food is out of this world, you can close your eye's, point at any entree and you'll never be disappointed, everything is so delicious and consistently so.
The staff are very friendly and accommodating, we've had nothing, but the best of times there in the dining area.
If you like visiting the bar, they have some of the best bartenders you'll ever meet, PJ and Victor are in a class by themselves, amazing service and personalities, which will keep coming back for more.
Billy keep up the great work, we love what you created.

My husband and I have a very enjoyable experience dining at Bricco. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. My husband had the tuna and he couldn't stop talking about how good it was.

We celebrated our 29th anniversary there Sunday night. This is a favorite restaurant of ours. We traveled there from Dutchess County NY. We stop there every chance we get, shopping at West Farms or going to a casino. Great food and terrific service.

We love this restaurant! It's our go-to place in West Hartford for special occasions. As with all restaurants at this time of year, it was crowded on the night of our reservation, but the hostess worked to get us comfortable seating in a timely manner -- practically right at the time of our reservation. Our one disappointment was that they ran out of one of the specials before we made our order.

The hostess in charge of seating was rude and condescending. Although the food was good, in the future I would prefer to select a restaurant that excels at both cuisine and well trained personnel.

All in all, our experience was good. The only downside was that we had to wait 15 minutes for a table, even though we had a 7:00 reservation, which was frustrating. Once we were seated, the food and service were great!

We came especially to eat the amazing Lobster Grilled Cheese Sandwich and we were not disappointed. I know this is an unusual offering in an Italian restaurant...but try it and see for yourself. I almost got my favorite Baked Rigatoni dish...but there will be plenty of cold nights ahead for that treat!
The food here is fabulous and so is the staff. Dining here is always a great experience!

Second time in Wedt Hartford’s location-typically frequent visitor to Glastonbury-which I love! Our West Hartford waiter was rude and insulting - not helpful when seeking a pasta dish without meat. His “opinion” on wine was as insulting, as he deemed himself “an expert” when, indeed he was not. Food was, as typical of Billy Grant, exceptional!
