Becco Ratings and Reviews

I return again and again because the food never disappoints and the waitstaff has always been the right amount of friendly and down to business. To start, the gin & tonic was excellent and we all raved about the calamari! Service can be a little spotty given that it's always incredibly busy (3 of the entrees came out together and a fairly significant wait for the other 2 entrees was a drag). It was a disappointment to the one person in our party that ordered the trio of pastas that the one pasta she wanted a second helping of was no longer available. Still, we all did enjoy ourselves and will gladly return.

We were disappointed...we went post theatre...service was very slow to get drinks but super fast to bring food (appetizer came before drinks) ...bread box was awesome...pasta trio was average and stuffed peppers also average...fried mozz was good...we loved getting a bottle of wine for $29....wouldn't go back though.

Service was great on a busy night. We sat upstairs in a nondescript room tucked in a very tight corner. The food was average at best. Short ribs were fatty and the pulled pork was flavorless. I was expecting something outstanding but I've had better food on my grill at home. Disappointing.

I love Becco for pre- theater dining, lunch or dinner. Everything from the appetizers to dessert are very well dinner, delicious, rustic, good quality ingredients, and hardy portions. I've dined at Becco at least 10 times and each time I was highly satisfied and delighted. In addition, Becco has very reasonable prices for a Manhattan restaurant.

I was there twice in the past two weeks. I found it to be one of the better restaurants for pre-theater dining, both for matinee and evening shows. With the exception of the noise level, the food, service and ambiance were quite good. I would recommend this place anytime.

It is always a pleasure to have pre-theater lunch or dinner at Becco. The menu offers many wonderful choices. The waitstaff is efficient and knowledgeable about the food. We had a delicious lunch at the restaurant.

Our daughter and son-in-law met my husband and I at Becco for dinner before going to a broadway show on a Friday night. We all enjoyed our dining experience, from appetizers to dessert. The food was excellent, the service attentive and efficient, and the atmosphere lively and upbeat. To top it off, Lydia happened to be there, and we had an opportunity to meet with her--such a gracious, wonderful lady--and we went out walking on air. Great evening from start to finish--highly recommended--but be sure to make reservations beforehand so you'll be sure to get a table.

Fabulous place for pre-theater dinner on restaurant row. I had the daily pasta special and the menu has a page of wines by the bottle for under $30. Great service.

We like the place. The service was decent. The wine list was cheaper than most places ($29 for a number of bottles). They had a pasta deal where you can eat three pastas (whatever the three of the day are) and you can get more of each. Food was okay.

We have eaten at Becco before and were pleased with the food both times. The food is good for the value if you get the pasta selections for the day and that was very good. The service last week was VERY slow, it took about 10-15 minutes for the server to even come over to get our drink order.

The flexibility concerning the composition of the meal (pasta) was unsufficient. The roomtemperature was much too cold and there was an constant flow threw the room. Sitting in the back, just before the kitchen, by the passage of the personnel was uncomfortable. But - the food was excellent made and we would recommend it to other people.

The food is nothing short of amazing. The service is very friendly and approachable. The portions are huge! Come prepared to eat and get what you paid for. The unlimited pasta tasting is very filling. Highly energetic surroundings (not necessarily "loud"). Seats are close to each other, tables are almost touching. Depends on what you're looking for! Overall, had a great time there.

Best food I have had in a long time. I wish I had something even comparable on the west coast. If you want great Italian food GO!

Terrible service. Don't waste your time. Get the unlimited pasta dish, but have to wait 15 minutes for each new round. Overpriced for what you get. Manhattan has much more to offer than getting fleeced by this restaurant. Service quality is pathetic.

Seated in smallish upstairs room, noisy and crowded. Sorry to say would not go back or recommend. Pastas and fish were prepared very well; lamb was tough; chicken breast was dry. Excellent dessert.

We arrived at the restaurant at around 2:45pm. The waiter gave us lunch menus and then, after we choose our entrees, decided to switch us to the dinner menu (just to charge us more for the same entrees). Service was horrible. I had to ask for water 4 times before it actually arrived. Food was okay. Overpriced for sure. I would not recommend this restaurant.

not good for a late night, good food, but felt like leftovers. Was passed from 1 waiter to another. Food was decent, but nothing special. Will not go back for just prior to closing again.
