Want to try one of the best bakeries in Boston? Bricco Panetteria is hidden down a tight alleyway off of the central Hanover St. in the North End. The traveler that stumbles across it will be delighted by what she finds: as soon as you go down the steps that lead to the bakery, the delicious smell of wheat and freshly cooked bread swarms the nose. Ovens and facilities used to make bread occupy most of the bakery, making its hand-baked quality evident even before you have a chance to sample its superb taste. Bricco, the company that operates the bakery, also runs the nearby restaurant and small Italian grocer. Although these are both definitely worth a try, the bakery is one of the more unique places in the North End, offering some of the best bread you will ever try.
