Bricco Salumeria & Pasta Shop & Panetteria, Boston

Bricco Salumeria & Pasta Shop & Panetteria, Boston

Tucked away in a tiny Board Alley, just off Hanover Street in the North End of Boston, are the two shops – Bricco Salumeria & Pasta Shop and Bricco Panetteria – commonly referred to by locals as Bricco Alley. The former of the two shops specializes in made-to-order sandwiches – some of the best in the city; while the latter is a full-service bakery producing highest quality bread, recognized as one of the Best of Boston in 2014.

The bakery is a brainchild of Frank DePasquale, owner of a chain of restaurants, who opened Bricco Panetteria specifically to provide bread for his chain. The bread is handmade and sold fresh every day. The shop also pays tribute to the Sundays of DePasquale’s youth by offering hand-made pasta, prepared just like his mother did back in Italy. It complements well the high-caliber Italian products sold at Salumeria next door, many of which are imported straight from the “old country” including cheeses (notably: mozzarella and focaccia), meats, olive oils, vinegars and tomatoes – everything you need for a delicious authentic Italian meal, at your fingertips!

The little opening outside, with a few tables, is where you can eat it whilst breathing the aroma of freshly-baked bread all the way. Many a people, strolling past, find hard to resist the temptation and stop by to pick up a loaf or two for themselves. You may as well fall into this trap so as to ensure a good memory of your time in the North End. And you may even make a point of coming back again, every now and then, to repeat the experience!
