My wife and I went there for dinner a few weeks ago. I was pleasantly surprised. When I saw the location, I thought that it might be more casual than I wanted. But it was very cozy and comfortable. The food was very good, delicious actually. I had a chicken dish which had prosciuto and provolone cheese with cognac sauce, it was really really really good!! My wife went with boring pasta, gnocchi. But she loved it, said the sauce was wonderful. We skipped appetizers this time since we got there late and didn't want to have a big meal sitting in our stomachs all night. But of course, we had dessert.... I had their italian cheesecake which I believe was homemade and my wife opted for Tiramisu, she loved that too.
Overall, if you haven't tried this place yet, give it a try. It was very very good. Like I said, we got there late, it was a Thursday night, they weren't too busy so there was no wait.
Service was wonderful too .... maybe because there were only a few tables, but no one hovered, yet always knew when you needed something.

It was downright painful to eat Christmas Eve dinner last night at Brioso in Marlboro. When the restaurant isn't crowded, you're assured of a pretty decent meal and attentive service. Last night, the restaurant had been overbooked; the tables had been pushed so closely together you couldn't even walk between them to get to a restroom. Our appetizers were inedible and incomplete, my husband's veal chop was raw, the minestrone soup was like dishwater. Service was beyond horrendous -- it was so obvious that the kitchen and waitstaff were ill-prepared to service the guests; 3 meals were served and then we sat and waited until the other three arrived.. One server dropped off something we didn't order and then got surly with us when we told her it wasn't ours. Skip this one for holidays.

The food is excellent, ambiance is warm and the service is mediocre. It is extremely crowded on weekends and very noisy.There is no place to wait for a table so be prepared to wait outside if you show up at prime times on weekends.
The main dining room is the domain of David, a waiter who is very pleasant and personable...but not professional or refined. He will pour your wine but be careful...he may be giving it to everyone at the table without asking. He makes it very obvious he is working for tips...so if you don't usually order appetizers, coffees and desserts, you won't get his best effort. In fact, you won't see him or the busboys the rest of your stay. He calls his section "First Class" but the irony is that it is anything but...
The food is good though...and usually very reliable. Probably best to try Brioso on off nights when the crowds are missing.

I have Brioso's five stars becuase of the excellent service and wonderful cuisine and atmosphere. They have a wide menu with many Italian dishes to choose from. The restaurant is semi-formal, so I reccomend nice clothing- you won't see any jeans or t-shirts here.
