Becco Ratings and Reviews

Always happy eating at Becco. Our waiter was swamped with large parties and we were patient as we don't like to rush through dinner. The manager came over within minutes to take drinks order and tell us the specials which was very nice.
Pesto wasn't as good as usal.tables are too close
Tables are way too close to each other. Will not be returning for an anniversary dinner.
As usual, the staff at Becco was wonderful. My wife and I have been celebrating our wedding anniversary for the last eight years and it has always been a fantastic experience.

Crazy busy hot spot. Waiter seemed pre-occupied. Had the pasta Tasting menu, one of the three dishes was simple and good, spaghetti with tomato sauce, the other two were weak especially the beef short rib lasagna with a cream sauce, sweet in flavor and not good. The best two dished were the veal chop Parmesan, tender veal and crisp and the hanger steak with polenta. Calamari app and Caesar salad were good as well.

We arrived 30 minutes late due to heavy nyc traffics but were seated immediately with kindness! The service is impeccable. Delicious wine recommendation. Burrata, antipasto grilled vegetables and the tri pasta selections were amazing. We are looking forward to coming back!

The pasta lunch special ( samples of 3 pastas of the day) was delicious and a good value. Nice touch with the $29 wine menu. Great friendly and attentive service. Highly recommended especially pre-theatre.

This was our second time at Lidia's restaurant. The food is very very good. The hot food comes really hot (a good thing!) You won't leave hungry as is the case nowadays with many restaurants. Only negative is that the tables are really tiny so they barely hold your plate and drink and the bread and you are REALLY close to the people on either side of you -- you hear their conversations whether you want to or not!
Pasta special rules
I love the pasta specials for lunch. My fav is the pasta that's rolled like taffy and filled with motzerella cheese. Simply delish!

We arrived late for an 11:30 reservation, 11 ladies ready to attend the theatre. The waiters were so attentive, cheerful and could not have been more graceful. Due to traffic, we were late, they welcomed everyone, brought the meal and we were out in time for the play. The meal was excellent. A truly wonderful experience from start to finish.

I was thrilled to be going to Lydia's restaurant but was disappointed in my chicken breast dish--it was VERY hot and overcooked/tough. I was expecting it to be moist and juicy. The ambience is similar to a Little Italy restaurant, crowded, close together with great service. I won't be going back because the food is most important to me.

The pasta trio was wonderful! The meal starts with a Caesar salad and then three waiters arrive with hot skillets full of three different pastas. All were delicious & the gnocchi was light as a feather. Awesome desserts too! It's right in the theatre district, so perfect for those special nights.

Think this is a very good value, especially in the theater district. My only complaint is that the tables for 2 are very small making it difficult to place more than two plates at one time.

Love this place. The 3 pasta pre fixe cannot be beat. And they have a 29.00 per bottle wine list that has some great wines. Our dinner was pre theatre and they kept everything on time to assure a relaxing meal and getting to our show on time.

We have dined here several times. Most have been better than this, which started with very oily menus and multiple requests for a high chair for our 2 year old. Service changed or rather stopped in the middle of dinner. The "fresh" fish special halibut was fishy and tasted like it had been frozen. The spaghetti with marinara was delicious and hot but the mushroom ravioli so rather bland and watery. The risotto served with the chicken was flavorful. I have given better reviews to this place in the past and was highly disappointed with this visit.

I love Becco! Delicious food - Lidia Bastianich is BRILLIANT. And, it's an AMAZING deal to get unlimited pasta for $25 for dinner with bread and salad. #thedream
Special Occasion dinner
We enjoyed the restaurant. Service and Food were outstanding. Would have preferred to be in the main dining room. Our table was in the bar area. It just didn't feel as open or special, as the this was a birthday dinner occasion. Next time I will request different room.

Crowded, little space between tables. Might be common in NYC. Service was solid. Food was great. I would go back. Had pasta of day sampler.
Great to take family
Took some family visiting from out of town. They loved the proximity to Times Square and the cozy atmosphere. We all ordered the pasta trio and enjoyed every bite. Too stuffed for desert but I recommend this place to others. Great deal and very quick service especially if you are seeing a show. Upscale but casual. Reservations totally recommended for sure.
Pre Theater Perfect
We have eaten at Becco several times before going to the theater. The daily prix fixe, three pasta menu is a great deal, as is the $29 wine bottle list. Service is attentive, and they make sure you leave for the show on time.

The $29 wines and the 3-course pasta meal are unbeatable! One look at the staff also proves you have embraced diversity. Congratulations!
Food Was Good
Service was excellent, nice atmosphere, value was good. I had the caesar salad/stuffed peppers and my friend had soup/seafood over polenta...she made the better choice in my opinion!
Pre-Theater Pasta Special
Pre-theater pasta special is a good value, except that on the last two occasions, one of the pasta options was only so-so. So rather than three choices, it really was two. Food quality was good, but not spectacular.

Great food at a great price. We've been several times now, and would recommend it to anyone.
Great for a delicious low cost get together
Becco is a phenomenal place to come for an inexpensive get together. There is a $29 wine list with an AMAZING Bastianich Sauvignon Blanc, and the sinfonia de pasta is to dye for. For a very low cost, you get unlimited salad and a variety of three different daily pastas. I always have a great time and leave very full when I dine at Becco!
Found a favourite bottle of Amarone on the wine list. Unfortunately wasn't in stock so a replacement bottle was decided upon. The bottle was decanted somewhere other than in my presence and was brought to my table. I wasn't enamoured with the wine so sent it back. Another bottle was brought to me table, unopened, and we decided to try that one. Again the waiter brought 2 glasses and the decanted wine. We accepted the wine and the waiter poured out 2 glasses and left the table with the decanter. Buy this time wasn't sure what I was drinking whether it was the $100.00 bottle I ordered or some other wine. In hind sight I should have asked that the bottle, un-canted be left at my table. Live and learn!

I have eaten at Beccos many times and have never had a bad experience yet. The food is always great and the staff is very helpful. I just wish it was a bit bigger
