  • "Although we have been to BECCO several times for lunch, this was our first dinner reservation. Our show wasn't until 8 but we were able to get a reservation for 4:15 only. Our wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable. Because there were few diners at this hour, they were able to converse about the food and wine beyond their normal table delivery. We were not rushed. We discussed some of our favorite lunch meals and wines. The lamb chops were done to perfection. My partner's stuffed peppers were unlike anything she had ever tasted before. We were brought a complimentary dish of sorbet with our dessert. This ended the meal perfectly. Thank you, BECCO for another memorial meal."

  • "The food was delicious, it arrived in a timely manner, we were impressed with the service, the extent of the wine list, the concern of the waitstaff and their ability to get our food to us so we could make our 2 pm theatre performance. We ordered off the menu, rather than the prix fixe, but next time we will definitely try the pasta trio."

  • "I am an italian lady with a very strong cooking family tradition, I follow Masterchef in Italy every edition and so I was curious once in nyc to try one of your restaurants, well, I must say that everything was perfect, food very welll done, (i appreciate the bread basket ) the spada fish was cooked properly, although the liver was a little behind cook. Only one remark, too many tables, and at full it is a little too loud, but on the other side this means everybody like to eat at yours! So, again, complimenti. Gaia Rome"

  • "My personal chef friend recommended Becco to me years ago as a great place to dine in Times Square area but unable to make reservation on a spur of the moment theatre dates. With a few days lead time in advance of my siblings coming into mid town Manhattan, I made a quick reservation for a Friday. Extremely busy, the tavern waiting area was cramped and noisy, but after a 15 minute wait, we were seated upstairs where the ambience was perfect for our sibling get together. Service and dishes lived up to high expectations I had based on my personal chef friend's extremely scrutinizing taste."

  • "My daughter and I had a wonderful dinner at Becco before a play. The three pasta special might be the best deal in town. The rest of the menu looked great including a reasonably priced wine list. The service was excellent. The restaurant is small, and the tables are close together. Noise level is also high. However, if you are looking for great dinner before a show, Becco is the place to go."

  • "We ate at Becco for lunch on a Friday, as a special treat during our mother/daughter trip to NYC. I had eaten dinner there on a previous trip in the winter, and still think about the food I ate! I ordered a glass of prosecco, which was cool and refreshing after walking all morning, and we shared the Cesar salad. The croutons and dressing were delicious and special. Then I had the 3 fresh pasta special, which I highly recommend because the pasta is so fresh and the sauces are to die for. My daughter ordered the chicken parmesan, which was perfection. Becco is a great place to share dishes, since the servings are ample. The food is unforgettable and fresh, the service is friendly but professional, and the ambiance is clean and unpretentious."
