Frank De Pasquale’s brainchild, Bricco is a solid Italian restaurant and wine bar in Boston's North End neighborhood. Its strong suits are pasta courses, such as pappardelle with wild boar ragù, lasagna, gnocchi, as well as meat dishes. Chef Nello Caccioppoli is able to offer traditional Italian cuisine in a city where it is very hard to find authentic Italian flavors. The professional service completes the picture. Save some room for Nello's desserts.
