Everything was excellent except for the gazpacho. Too thin, too watery, lacked depth.

We loved the wood fire oven baked rigatoni with sausage, the duck breast, and the Nutella pie. And portions were generous enough that we brought home some rigatoni for lunch the next day!

My only complaint, ever, about Bricco is the noise level. I find it really hard to hear the people with whom I’m dining.

We have been to Bricco a handful of times and it never disappoints. This past time was no exception, excellent service, good selection of offerings - everything was as ordered.

Just disappointed that the guest taking our table after we left, felt the necessity of taking my Maui Jim sunglasses instead of giving them to the server. I called within 5 minutes of departure. No reflection on the staff, just your clientele. Sad.

This is our go to place! Billy Grant never disappoints! The food is always outstanding. Our server last night was phenomenal and very outgoing. He did a great job answering any questions we had about wines and even gave us a little tasting so that we made sure the bottle of wine we selected was the one that we wanted. I have absolutely not one thing negative to say about this place. We started off the evening with the meatball appetizer, the calamari, and the mozzarella and tomato with prosciutto platter. My husband got the duck breast which was cooked perfectly. My friend got the special of the night which was for jumbo shrimp served over homemade fettuccine. The pasta was so al dente it was perfect! And myself I ordered the scallops which they knocked out of the park! Needless to say after all that food we did not make it to the desert, however I have had pretty much every single one of their desserts and I can say nothing bad about any of them. We are regulars here and we will continue to be faithful to Billy Grant and his staff.

Great outdoor seating; attentive but not hovering service from Scott; food was top notch as always. Gluten free pizza crust was just ok, but salads and cocktails were wonderful

As always the food and experience was very good. Only negative is that when I sat in the booth the seat was full of crumbs. I had to get out of the booth and clean off the seat myself.

Had lunch with two grandchildren and husband. As usual, food was excellent, service perfect and not the usual noise level one has at night. Bricco's is our favorite restaurant in Wet Hartford Center.

Your policy of not sitting people at their table until all in the party have arrived does not work for my business entertaining / meetings. I had a customer with me, and was waiting for a 2nd that was delayed (only 20 min. delay). I was told we had to wait rather than being seated and having the ability to start conducting my business. The bar was 3 deep and not an option space to wait in.

Food and service were excellent as always. Noise levels were fairly high, able to have conversation. Only complaint was being seated at a very small table when there were three open booths nearby. We had advised Bricco that our dinner was a special occasion.

Fabulous food with outstanding service.
Only issue was that they were not able to initially process our open table reservation properly and we received notification from Open Table that we had not kept the reservation when were in fact there. It was eventually corrected

I have never had anything remotely resembling a bad dish at Bricco. The food is excellent, and the atmosphere convivial and lively. That explains why I characterize the noise level as "energetic". People love it there so the conversation amps up. In a quieter restaurant, people probably aren't having as much fun. In any event, I love Bricco and will go back many times.

Whenever there is a problem or special request management takes care of it immediately to my satisfaction,
The background music is too loud and genre is not to my liking.
How about some nice soft Italian music for the background music?

Pizzas are very good
Pasta carbonera very good
Caesar salad is sad, no shaved parm. Hardly any dressing, no lemon on the side, 3 rock hard croutons
Calamari grossly soggy with oil and half tentacles.
Would take out pizza and pasta again but not a return trip
