  • "This was our tenth visit to Becco and it was every bit was good as the previous nine visits. The service was delightful, we were seated 5 minutes after our scheduled reservation and, most importantly, the food was delicious. The menu offered a large variety of options so we were able to select exactly what we wanted. We will definitely return in the near future."

  • "It was so loud I couldn't hear the waiter or the people we went to dinner with Felt very cramped with people bumping my chair The pasta ravioloi was watery, the spaghetti was boring but the orchiette with cauliflower was delicious. The wine was fabulous."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "We have been to Becco's many times and usually are very happy with the 3 pasta dishes. The pasta has always been homemade and the sauces are delicious. However this time the raviolis that were supposed to have some type of artichoke stuffing with a cream sauce over it was fairly tasteless and the sauce was very thin and almost soupy. The spaghetti was just their typical homemade with a light marinara sauce which is good but nothing special. The last pasta was a shell shape and didn't taste homemade although the sauce was pretty good. Although we had a reservation they wanted to seat us in the bar. I asked if we could please sit somewhere else which they did but it was apparently right next to their serving area so was extremely noisy."

  • "Noise level very high, tables too small & too close together and spoiled the dining experience. Food was very good but the Orecchiette were undercooked and hard but the ravioli & spaghetti were delicious. Also, In an Italian restaurant I would expect a tablespoon would be provided with the spaghetti, it was not and had to be asked for. Overall, somewhat disappointing. I don't know if I would return."

  • "but may have been where we were seated and what we ordered. Still, where can you dine and get a decent bottle of wine for $25?! The service was patient and friendly in spite of the fact that she was obviously very busy. We had an enjoyable evening, just not a great one. I'd definitely go back if in the 'hood."

  • "4pm reservation, they were ready for us. Just inside, welcomed by warm, friendly, smiling faces, placed into the hands of a mature, professional Waiter that welcomed us, explained the vast specials clearly, and made our 2nd Becco experience everything that we thought it would be. The food was on the mark, the wine was paired for us beautifully, the day was 87 degrees but cool inside Becco which is very important to my wife and I. we will be back again ~ Thank you to all at Becco NYC ~"

  • "Our party of four was seated earlier than our reservation, which was very fortunate. We ordered the pasta special (Three pastas, all you want & Caesar's salad) excellent taste & value. We did start with meatballs as an appetizer, and they were fabulous! Just like Nana used to make! Wines were $26 a bottle, nice selection & great value. I would recommend Becco & will return on a future visit to the Big Apple..."

  • "Plus we were cramped between other tables with a very small table. And next to us .. the people were yelling at each other just to be heard."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "I left hungry, this occurred because I am a vegetarian and they had only one main course option was poorly made. Veggies were overlooked, spicing was off and it looked and tasted terrible, everyone at my table agreed. This happens at busy restaurants, and my hope was they'd offer an alternative but they did not and this was really unacceptable. When I (nicely) explained that the dish wasn't right for me the waiter and manager never offered an alternate. The only thing they offered was for me to buy the pasta trio, a course of 3 pastas with two pastas I could not eat. They would not sell me a small plate of the one vegetarian pasta (really they should have offered it for free). The rest of the food was just okay, none of us will return."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Food was great. Service impeccable. The symphony of pastas can be it's own meal, but I would recommend that you build up an appetite and add it to one of their delicious entrees!"
