Restaurant Review

Bricco Coal Fired pizza is popular with diners who enjoy high end coal fired pizza, known for it's crunchy, yet tender, and tasty crust topped with fresh home made and imported ingredients.

Owned and operated by Vincenzo Barone since April 2014, he also owns Barone's Tuscan Grill in Moorestown and is part of the family (brother Giovanni, father Guido) behind Collingswood's long-running Villa Barone.

The cooking and preparation process used by Barone is whats sets them apart from the other popularr pizza joints who use a cookie cutter approach, and heavy packaged toppings.

Bricco uses one of the most expensive pizza ovens in the world. It requires a 2 hour pre-lighting process and hourly monitoring in order to provide a tasty crust and pizza.

At Bricco, the dough is aged, brought to the proper temperature, and hand-tossed to create the perfect bake. When the ingredients and the baking in a 1,000 degree coal fired oven produces a foundation crust that is thin, tender, and a bit crunchy for a flavorful product.

The toppings are made from fresh local and imported ingredients, including imported San Marzaono tomatoes

The decor at Bricco has a simple modern, atmosphere. The walls are covered with wood and subway tiles and a black-and-white photo mural. They have approx 4 booths that seat 4 comfortably, a corner booth that seats larger parties,  and 2 & 4 seated tables and chairs fill out the center of the restaurant.

The dining room, which overlooks the coal-fired oven, is equipped with wood tables, metal chairs, wood floors.

They are child friendly with a kids menu. The child's pizza is less well done (crusty) to please their palate. Also, The staff will give children small balls of raw dough to play with while waiting for their food.

Bricco serves lunch and dinner and is open Mon-Thurs 11-9:30, Fri & Sat 11-10, & Sunday 12-9
