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.
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. 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.
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.
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.
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.
