Bricco Trattoria Restaurant Review: Restaurateur Billy Grant’s Bricco Trattoria has the look and feel of an Italian farmhouse, featuring a welcoming gas fireplace in the foyer, huge glass wine jugs-turned-chandeliers, and enlarged wall prints made from photos Grant has taken during his trips to some of Italy’s finest trattorias. And then there is the menu, one that reflects Grant’s commitment to farm-to-table taste and freshness. Roasted figs stuffed with goat cheese and prosciutto; a selection of fresh sliced salumi, formaggio and roasted peppers; and pane de pomodoro soup appear on the antipasti menu that sets the right tone for dinner. Pasta choices include tagliatelle with braised rabbit, plump potato gnocchi Calabrese, and cavatelli alla Napoletana. Steak Florentine rib-eye for two and Aunt Josie's Sunday Ragù are entrées that set the bar high when it comes to comfort food done well, thanks to the expertise of executive chef Corey Cannon. There is also a daily "Trattoria Supper" featuring assorted choices. Pizza is crisp on the outside thanks to the special brick ovens, with a soft interior. If you take advantage of the always-packed happy hours, make sure to try a Bellini. There are two private rooms, a main dining room and a patio for al fresco dining.
