A million thanks to the staff.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous Italian FoodAbsolutely the best. Fresh, fresh, fresh. Service excellent. Can't wait to return.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food - Reasonable PriceBecco is a great place for real Italian food and excellent wines, all for a very reasonable price. A little noisy, but to be expected in a packed, family style environment. Great service - attentive, but not overly intrusive. I strongly recommend it and I will be back!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AM1 marginal visit in 10Usually the service is spot on. They definitely had an off night. They were not busy which is unusual. It took 35 min to get our main course after we sat for 15 to give our order. A large party showed up and sat in our section about 10 min after we had arrived. All the attention went to them. We had to ask for water, ask for pasta which is the specialty on the menu where they come around and continue to serve what you like. The empty wine bottle and water bottle sat on the table until desert, we had to ask they be removed. IT WAS SO STRANGE. I love BECCO's. I hope this was a one off.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as alwaysDiscovered that the Monday after Mother;s Dayis a great time to visit this rest. It was quiet! Usually much noiser. Food great as always,The short ribs were fall off the bone tender, but there was a bit more fat than I would have liked.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMRestaurant Row GemThis place NEVER disappoints. Everything is delicious, nicely served -- no pretention, no attitude, just great food.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat resturant if you enjoyGreat resturant if you enjoy authentic Itailan cusine5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat theatre district restaurant!Finally, a good find in the middle of the theatre district. Often the restaurants in this area are overpriced and mediocre. At Becco's we were greeted warmly, I didn't feel like a sardine in a can and food was delicious. Our family loved the chicken parmagiana and ceasar salad. The three pastas of the day were all really good and not expensive. The bread at the table was warm and delicious too. When the bread is good, you know your meal will be good too. We can't wait to go back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingWe visited Becco on Mother's Day for dinner and the food and service was outstanding. I've been to Becco several times, and I always enjoy going back. Their family style menu is a great way to experience a good variety of dishes in one sitting. I will be back and recommend Becco to anyone who asks for a comfortable spot in the city.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest food around this area!Best food around this area!

Wonderful meal and very attentive wait staff.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian ExperienceThis is a busy restaurant but we were seated within 5 min of our reservation time. With so many patrons going to the theater after dinner, they really know how to move the meal along. Service was great, and the food was yummy - especially the seafood risotto. I would go back just for that!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFestive, Fun, & aFFordableGreat night out celebrating an old friend's birthday. We were two women and felt very comfortable at Becco, lots of combinations of diners. We had a reservation and were seated right away. Our waiter Kyle was delightful. We loved the seafood risotto, salad good, bread, wine-just perfect. Will definitely return.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Place!Went with my hubby for a night out. Loved the place. We had reservations and were seated promptly. Service was great. Food was delicious. Prices were decent, especially the wine for $25. Wow. It was noisy, but nothing like was described in other reviews. We tend to like lively places anyway. It is crowded and packed though, so if you want to spread out you may not be able to. But I would definitely recommend for good food and fun.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best in NYCOur party of 4 enjoyed the excellent, friendly and professional service. The food was attractively plated, hot and delicious. The wine list on the back page of the menu listed wines for $25.00 a bottle that we found very good. Menu caters to a variety of tastes.
I would easily recommend Becco and will return for dinner myself.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMwadda dinner!!Having eaten at lydia's here in K.C. we were expecting similar food, but it was even better! the energy level there is very high, and it's a fun, noisy place to eat where tables are within inches of each other, and waiters move at 50 mph! The liver is fab, for those who love liver, and the veal is, well, the best ever! My wife went with the pasta trip which was fab by itself. A great place to have a wonderful Italian dinner.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFresh, Friendly and AffordableLocated conveniently on Restaurant Row in the theater district, this was probably the best Italian food that I've had. Everything was freshly prepared and delicious. Starting with the welcoming breadbasket, tray of olives and a cannelini bean " humus," I enjoyed a version of chicken parm was light and delicious while my wife had the unlimited plate of 3 different pastas, also excellent. The food is modestly priced and the extensive wine list with all bottles priced at $25 is an excellent idea. We liked it so much that we returned after the show for dessert.
The staff was very friendly and accomodating. We look forward to visiting again soon. BRAVO !!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was very noisy and a littleIt was very noisy and a little too crowded but the delicious food and comfortable ambience made up for it. We loved it and will definitely return on our next trip to New York!!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMa repeatThird time at Becco's. Bring new friends each time and they always enjoy the place. Will go back on our next trip to NYC !
- Friends from Montreal !5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI am a big fan of Becco, andI am a big fan of Becco, and this visit was another reason to appreciate it. They honored my request for a prime table, the food was delicious, the chef even provided a few extra dishes and a refreshing bottle of dessert wine. My parents and my lifelong neighbors absolutely loved it.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter than expectedDid not expect much from the restaurant because of its touristy area. I needed to look for something real quick for my birthday party with 13 diners. They had the capacity so I took it right away. The atmosphere in the restaurant was great and cozy. The food was good (I ordered pork chop) although not the best Italian food I have had. Everyone in my group enjoyed the place. Thank you Becco!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply GreatThis place is everything I expected from Lidia... The food was unique and creative... The specialty drinks superb... The unique selection of $25 bottles of wine Great... The service attentive, polite and very helpful... Would recommend to foodies...5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Becco !We had a delicious dinner. The pasta trio is always
Fabulous.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointedI'm never disappointed when eating at Becco. Love the pasta trio special the best but the other entrees are just as wonderful. Great affordable bottles of wine. Desserts are delicious! Great place to eat when going o a Broadway show.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dining experienceOur party of four arrvied at 11:25 AM. We were greeted and taken to our table. The server was very professional and nice. All of the servers we saw seemed to like their jobs and were nice to be around. The bread, drinks and lunch and dessert were great. We all had a chicken dish for our entree. I would definitely recommend this establishment to all when up in New York theater district. One of the best arounnd. Thanks for your help in booking the reservation for the day.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMatinee Day OMGWe had a reservation thank goodness, not an empty table, but this restaurant is used to matiness crowds. The service is wonderful. Not rushed, enough time to enjoy your drink before your meal arrives. My friend had the three pasta special and we split the salad. The portions are large. I had a favorite I hardly ever find on menus, calves liver with onions over crispy polenta. Just wonderful, but way too much food. Can't take it with you to the theater. We did make a pact, no more entrées for lunch, just appetizers, a much better sized portion yet still big enough to share. Becco is my go to place for theater days, but I will pare down the next time.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMTexan on Business in New YorkLast year I had a local New Yorker recommend Becco last year unfortunately I could not secure a reservation. This year I planned accordingly. Upfront the host greatly me promptly and validated my reservation. The host greeted me and validated my reservation and I waited less 5 minutes for my table. I had a set by the window upstairs overlooking the neighborhood. The waiter explained the menu and specials to me. I ordered the ribeye which was cooked to a perfect medium rare temperature as I ordered and was great.
Overall it was a great experience, staff was very friendly, service was excellent, and the food was great. I would recommend Becco to my friends if they are traveling to the area.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMpre theatre dinnerHave been to Becco several times. For NYC, they give you your moneys worth. There is a large selections of wine for $25/bottle.. All entrees come with a ceasar salad which is crispy & you can taste the anchovie. My swordfish was good. My DH had the rib eye. Even thought it was tasty, it was very chewy. He would not order it again. The cheese cake was excellent. Service was attentive and 2 different mgr came to to table to see if we were enjoying our meal.
We would have dinner here again..5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent again and againCelebrated a birthday here again. We have been eating at Beccos since they opened. It is always excellent.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBecco is one of my favoriteBecco is one of my favorite restaurants and it never disappoints, service and food were outstanding. I love the stuffed peppers with spatzele and most of the time that is what I order. We were served in plenty of time to make our 7:00 show.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways yummy. Such a greatAlways yummy. Such a great deal for NYC! $25 bottles of wine that are really good. I love coming here because I know I will always have a fresh delicious Italian meal!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for some, not much for othersLoved it! Everything was wonderful! The only negative was that we went with a vegan & there was only one pasta option on the menu. The pasta option was a trio & one of those had meat. I was really surprised that was all there was for her. Mushroom ravioli & spaghetti with plain tomato sauce. Everyone else had a great meal. Needless to say, she did not.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDELICIOUS food at a reasonable $The food is consistently good here, made fresh, with bursts of flavor. The wait staff is attentive and polite. The ambiance takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding area.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper food, wine, service. BargainLoved it. Close to theaters. Very nice decor, great waiter. Had the pasta special and a wine from the $25 list. Food and wine were excellent. Will definitely be a regular go to for us when in the area.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location & Great FoodWe had a wonderful lunch before seeing a show. The hostess was very accommodating by seating our party of 6 even when we got there early. The 3 pasta special was great and a real value. The staff was also very friendly and attentive5/5/2013 12:00:00 AM2nd time there. this time2nd time there. this time there were 3 of us including a cousin from ca. we all loved it. will go back. it was a sunday night and the place was packed.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is probably my 5th timeThis is probably my 5th time at Becco. Took a friend there for her birthday-she also had previously eaten there before. We were at the theatre and it was great getting in there at 5:30. When we left, wow what a crowd. We found the food excellent, service was terrific and I will be returning.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBecco - Busy but TastyWith a reservation in place we looked forward to our Becco dinner and we were not disappointed! Great wait staff that listened to our needs (wine selection, diet restriction - no dairy in soup?, no theater hurry). Stuffed peppers and shredded pork were excellent choices. Portions were right-sized and served hot. The main dining areas is active, but food fun, and you don't feel rushed. When we left, at peak time, and many waiting - interestingly the neighboring restaurants were much less active. Becco is well know for a reason. A true value - food quality on par with other more costly favorite italian restaurants. Will definitely return and recommend.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great serviceWe dined at Becco pre-theatre on a saturday night and we had a perfect meal. We waited about 10 minutes past our reservation time but that's to be expected pre-theatre. Once we were seated, service was prompt and very friendly. We ordered the 3 pasta special and it was fresh and delicious. My daughter had the caesar salad that came with it and it was very good but the antipasto misto my husband and I had was just outstanding. We also had a $25 bottle of wine which the waiter recommended was very good for the price. All in all, we had a beautiful experience dining at Becco.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBecco, NYWent for our 15th wedding anniversary dinner. Busy place, no particularly quite or private tables but the food is great as is the service. Would definitely recommend to others.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous mealMy first trip to Becco and it did not disappoint. We selected a wine from the list of $25 bottles and it was delightful. The Chef's pasta specials were wonderful. ON the night we dines, there was homemade mushroom ravioli in a light truffle oil, homemade linguini with broccoli and rigatoni and shrimp in a vodka sauce. The mushroom ravioli was my favorite, but each selection was well crafted and delicious. MY only regret is that I ate too much of the bread and white bean hummus and couldn't enjoy more of the pasta dishes.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMa wonderful afternoonI introduced my daughter to becco...it is now a favorite of hers also! Everything was wonderful..we decided to be tempted by the 3 pastas...highly recommended! The grilled veggie appetizer and fresh mozzarella flavors all so different and complimentary. Desert was heavenly...cannoli and chocolate lava cake! But of course the royal treatment you always receive here makes the wonderful food even more special...grazia5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMtoo bad we live in California...Becco is our new favorite restaurant...too bad we live in California or we would be dining there weekly.
Everything was perfect...food, service, ambiance, location to theaters....can't wait to return.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways GreatI love this place! We were 20 minutes late for our reservation (thank you Lincoln Tunnel) and they seated our dinner companion 30 minutes before our arrival and still us curtously and without hassel when we arrived, and service was impecably done so that we did not feel rushed. And yet made our show curtain easily. The three pasta plus $25 bottle of wine deal, is still the best value for quality in the theater district in my opiniom. Food as always, was great.. Server was so friendly and accomodating.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBecco never disappointsWe have been here a number of times, usually prior to seeing a show on Broadway. The pasta special may be the best deal on 46 street and is always excellent. The regular menu and specialties are always of high quality. Fish is fresh, the veal is excellent, and the service is superb. Be sure to have reservations and be prepared to wait in a crowded area if you have reservations at the height of the preshow dinner hour. Earlier is best!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBecco was wonderful, we broughtBecco was wonderful, we brought our 2 girls there (ages 7 and 11) and they enjoyed it as well. Even though there was no "kid menu" they accommodated my youngest child's request of pasta with butter only. My older one had the trio pasta and loved it. My husband and I enjoyed our dishes and he had a great time just perusing the wine menu. The server was excellent and we were treated very well.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways amazing and most accommodatiAlways amazing and most accommodating. Our favorite place when we are in the city. Great staff.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
