Harrisburg may not typically come to mind when you think of destinations for world-class Mediterranean restaurants, but that is changing. As Executive Chef Jason Collier says, downtown Harrisburg is experiencing a renaissance - one that finds its flavor behind the doors of Bricco. No wonder so many customers tell us it’s the place to get the best pasta in the Harrisburg and Hershey, PA area.
We serve entrées largely influenced by traditional Italian and Mediterranean cooking methods. Always thinking fresh and authentic, Chef Collier and the culinary team take advantage of Bricco's close proximity to central Pennsylvania's bountiful farm lands by using as much local produce and locally raised meats and poultry as possible. No matter if you’re coming from the West Shore for an experience at an Italian restaurant near Carlisle, PA, or seeking an East Shore location to get Italian food near Hershey, PA, or you live right down the street in Downtown Harrisburg, you can be certain you’re tasting cuisine made from farms in the local area. When seasons change in Pennsylvania, so do our menus, so that guests can enjoy the best of what the area has to offer at that particular time. Plus, they can help us help our economy by using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible.
Our dinner menu includes something for everyone.
The Grande Tower, featuring oysters, shrimp, littlenecks, lump crab, lobster and marinated calamari, is perfect for anyone wanting a taste of the sea. Three varieties of oysters appear on the menu, each from a different locale of the United States and Canada. Classic Bricco dishes include Grilled Za'atar Lamb Chops, which is accompanied by lamb ragout, carrot purée, fava beans, artichokes and refreshing mint, and hearty Sage Pappardelle, served with braised duck and a red wine and pancetta ragout.
Italian Pizza With an Authentic Flair
Then, of course, there are the selections that ring true to Italian cuisine. A respectable cheese list precedes the stone oven pizza selections on the menu. Simple classic pizzas, like the "SOMA" Margherita can cure an insatiable appetite, and unique Bricco creations, like the Kennet Square Mushroom, which is a smooth combination of mozzarella, caramelized onions and white truffle oil, delight the senses of guests looking to take their taste buds on an adventure. Bring your appetite and sense of culinary adventure when you come to Bricco. Your taste buds are sure to delight in this fine Italian restaurant.
Be sure to join us on Sundays to enjoy something from our Sunday menu, which encourages Italian dining as it was meant to be - family style. Many of our signature dishes are served in portions meant for two or more on Sundays, as we invite you to come in and spend some time with friends and family and enjoy Italian food at its finest.
