Fire Damages Bricco in the North End

A fire early this morning caused extensive damage to Bricco, an Italian restaurant in the North End of Boston. According to WBZ 1030, several people who lived in the Hanover Street building were left temporarily homeless in the two-alarm fire, which began on the roof of the restaurant. WBZ also mentioned that no one was injured in the fire.

Bricco, which is located at 241 Hanover Street (about a block in from the entrance to the North End), is an upscale Italian dining spot that features wood-oven pizza, regional Italian dishes (including agnollotti with a veal and beef stuffing, lamb shank, and veal ossobuco), martinis, Italian wines, and an optional five-course chef tasting.
