Bricco in Harrisburg, PA

31 South 3rd Street
Harrisburg, PA 17101

A Mediterranean restaurant in Harrisburg. the ambiance was fancy and upper class and dim lighting (ugh).


We started off with the calamari with bacon chili dip. This was the big chunk type of calamari which isn’t my personal preference but some people do like the big pieces. I was disappointed that the special hot sauce was more like bacon flavored BBQ sauce w some sort of spicy kick.

The reason why we came here was because they have their own butcher shop and cheese shop.

I had the 20 oz porterhouse steak w creamy Mac and cheese and Parmesan garlic French fries. I was so excited for the 1st bite of steak and I almost spit it out because it was SO salty! It made eating the rest of the steak painful (my lips got chapped and they couldn’t refill my water glass fast enough).

The Mac and cheese was so watery and disappointing.

The Parmesan garlic French fries tasted good but were so soggy which was really unfortunate.

Joe had the 16 oz new York strip steak with mashed potatoes and spinach. Joe noticed that his steak was way too salty too. Nothing spectacular about his sides.

I read on the menu that this restaurant is a collaboration with a culinary school and so for this reataurant’s sake, I hope tonight was some student’s first night in the kitchen…..

    Sorry to hear about your poor experience, I’ve always enjoyed dinner at Bricco. I will admit that some dishes do seem a tad salty, but I’m a salt fiend!
