Bricco Panetteria

Start by following the simple sign pointing down a back alley off Hanover Street, then let your nose take you the rest of the way. Bricco Panetteria is where many of the Italian loaves served in local restaurants are made, and lucky for us, the olive ciabattas, crusty baguettes, and round mountain loaves are now sold to the public. Brush up on your Italian and bring cash.
