Bocado Tapas Wine Bar Modern. Chic, Bold, Sexy Bocado has brought the modern, big city atmosphere to the Wellesley dining scene. A journey of tastes and flavor inspired by Mediterranean Cuisine served through a savory mix of tapas plates and extensive wine flights.

"It's nice to have a variety of food options available nearby and having Spanish food available is one of them. The food was fine, nothing special but nicely prepared and presented. The problem with the restaurant is that it's too noisy to have a reasonable conversation even with the person sitting directly across the table from you. The floor is bare concrete, the tables are wood without any tablecloths but there are things they could do to cut back on the sound that would make eating a meal there a more pleasurable experience."

BRIO (meaning "lively" or "full of life") is a "polished casual" restaurant serving authentic, northern Italian cuisine. The subtitle, "Tuscan Grille" is descriptive for a menu that features oven-roasted steaks, chops, and seafood; similar to what one would find in an authentic ristorante in Tuscany. BRIO's philosophy of "to eat well, is to live well" is why they only use the finest and freshest ingredients. BRIO brings the pleasure of a Tuscan country villa to the American city.

"The food is OK and it's not surprising to learn that Brio is part of a large national chain of restaurants. The menu and preparation of the dishes feel like they've been screened by focus groups and are really not all that creative.
The service left a good bit to be desired. It was rushed. Yes, it was a Saturday night when we went and there was a line, but that's no reason to serve the entrée before we had completed our appetizer/salad. Also, providing the bill along with the dessert and coffee, and then returning while we were still eating the dessert and asking if we were ready to pay, sends the message that we want you to eat and leave, not to enjoy your meal.
If you're simply looking for an OK meal because you need to get out of the house, then Brio is a good place to go."
