Riccardo's Ristorante is located in the North End neighborhood of Boston and is a family run business which has been recognized by local and national known food critiques as one of the best authentic Italian Restaurants in Boston. Now being run by Richie Jr., Riccardo's has the same fine standards and quality of food as always. The staff is highly trained and knowledgeable about every item on the menu. Unlike other Italian restaurants in the neighborhood Ricardo's never skimps on portions. Come and visit. Renew your love for Riccardo's.

"The menu choices were great, and the restaurant was lovely. We sat by the windows that gave us an open-air feeling. Compared to Hanover street, the foot traffic is lighter and the street itself is quieter, but we could still people-watch if we wanted too. Service was excellent overall - our server (Ali?) was great, both with personality and efficiency. Cocktails were delicious. I had the veal bracciole, quite tender and the light sauce was delicious. Loved the homemade pasta sauce. My husband had the veal chop, a little tougher than he hoped but very tasty. The only disappointment was when we asked to wrap the veal chop bone for our dog. A female server seemed put out by our request and was unfriendly. We would consider going back."

Bricco’s star has been rising steadily since restaurateur Frank DePasquale revamped the menu to feature modern interpretations of regional Italian dishes. <br><br> Bricco has garnished superlative reviews from food writers in Boston and around the country – Best Guaranteed Meal in the North End and Best Pasta in Boston just two of the most recent accolades. <br><br> The talented kitchen team creates “boutique” Italian food, so-called because it is unique, personal and created for a select and sophisticated diner. The food is complemented by an enoteca (wine bar) with an exceptional selection of all-Italian wines. <br><br> Bricco also offers a sophisticated late night scene. The chic and energetic bar serves up great one of a kind cocktails as well as brick oven pizza with gourmet toppings such as prosciutto and fresh mozzarella from Italy in addition with a full dinner menu. <br>Open 7 days a week 11:oopm – 2:00 a.m.

"This was our first time dining at Bricco. We asked for a quiet corner table and was glad we had requested this in advance since the lower level was very loud with the crowded bar in the same area as the dining room. We were seated upstairs. the table was small and difficult to get by the adjacent diners. This however, is not unusual for any restaurant in the North End. The service was very good as were our entrees. Appetizers were nicely presented and tasty as well. We would be very happy to dine there again."

"Had a fabulous dining experience. We ordered the tenderloin Oscar and the 12 ounce sirloin and both were the best we've had anywhere. The side dishes were delicious and the dessert (bread pudding) was just enough and a wonderful end to a perfect dinner. They have a great wine selection as well. Service was great. The only drawback for us was that the bar was so crowded that we had to stand with our cocktails, so we opted to be seated at our dinner table after a few minutes. We highly recommend this restaurant!"
