Bricco: Best Family-Friendly Restaurant in Harrisburg
Nestled in historic downtown Harrisburg, Bricco is the ultimate destination for world-class dining. Featuring a weekly changing menu of innovative Italian dishes, homemade pastas and California-style stone oven pizzas, Bricco offers a culinary adventure through the South of France, Italy, Greece and Spain.
The Epitome of Fresh, Sustainable and Local
Every Monday, Bricco offers a new menu, highlighting the freshest, local ingredients. We work with a long-standing network of local farmers and purveyors who tell us which ingredients are at the peak of their season. Based on their recommendations, we design a menu to showcase these peak-of-freshness products. When it comes to creating our Italian-themed menus, we believe the most delicious dishes feature the finest in local ingredients. We create each menu with the best of what’s fresh, in-season and sustainable in mind. From partnering with our trusted Pennsylvania farmers to offering fresh oysters from the Pacific Northwest to selecting the most delicious craft brews, international wines and more, Bricco offers an inspired dining experience in the heart of downtown Harrisburg.
We’re dedicated to offering the cleanest, crispest dishes, and we’re committed to sustainability. As a proud participant of the PA Preferred program, which encourages using Pennsylvania agricultural products and local producers, we actively support sustainable agriculture with our changing dinner menus. Harrisburg Magazine and Open Table both voted Bricco as the must-go, best restaurant in the area thanks in part to our fresh, unique cuisine.
You’ll enjoy watching award-winning Chef Witmer and his team of sous chefs and future culinary stars prepare their decadent creations as our kitchen is an open one, in full view from the dining area. Chef Witmer has been recognized for his unique ability to layer a few key ingredients and bring out the essence of their flavor.
Our changing menu also features seasonal favorites, anchored by the rustic, soulful dishes that define Bricco’s innovative approach to fine dining. It’s no wonder we’re Harrisburg’s only DiRoNA, Wine Spectator and Santé magazine award-winning restaurant.
