Best of Boston

2017 Best Bread Bakery

Bricco Panetteria

This basement-level bakery is part of Frank DePasquale’s North End culinary empire, and yet somehow everything about it screams old-world charm. From the tiny space, bakers churn out umami-rich olive-studded loaves and prosciutto-stuffed baguettes that are served at DePasquale’s restaurants and, if you’re lucky, with your next plate of home-cooked pasta.
