    If you love pasta this is the place for you! The unlimited pasta is a great deal and was perfect for my teen son who is always hungry. He was not hungry even after the show that night. I also appreciated that they were willing to make vegetarian pasta options as a substitute to the meat pasta offerings. The spinach ravioli was a standout dish on the unlimited pasta deal. Also had the special entree pasta with black truffles and it was excellent. The bottled wine is all reasonably priced. The only negative is if you are vegetarian and don’t want pasta there are no other options like pizza or hearty salads while there are plenty of meat mains like chicken or veal dishes.

    The wait staff is THE BEST! The service is Top Quality. And the 3 pasta specials is such a delicious bargain. And the huge $35 wine lists is Impressive. The management and Host desk is FANTASTIC! The place NEVER Disappoints. Nino B was the waiter - charming, efficient and just perfect. Please Make reservation days in advance for this very popular restaurant. I go early soon after they open. The place gets filled very fast.

    I was very hopeful, based on the reviews that this would be an amazing dining experience. The restaurant itself is lovely and the ambience was very good, However the food was just OK. I got the pasta deal where you get three different pastas. They were blah. The spaghetti and tomato sauce was somewhat flavorless, the pasta with bacon was greasy. I asked two times to have the server come over to our table and we were ignored. At the very end we asked to split the check because someone in our group was paying on her corporate card as she was traveling on business and the restaurant flatly refused. I am completely clueless as to why that would be the case but it was just really strange restaurant policy. The dining experience wasn’t all disappointing, the Caesar salad was excellent and highly recommended. We are still in search of an exceptional Italian experience unfortunately.

    We had a 7:30 curtain and we were seated at 6:20 for a 6pm reservation. Waiter was very competent but seemed annoyed at my concern over timing. The pasta trio was unremarkable. Salad was limp. Noisy. Crowded. Won’t come again.

    I went to celebrate me and my girlfriends anniversary. I got the strip steak which was delicious and she got the pastas which were also good. Most of the staff was very nice and very helpful. Unfortunately our actual waiter was not very kind. When telling us the specials or taking the order he only looked at me and seemed to pretend my girlfriend didn’t exist. Even when coming to ask is everything okay with the food, only spoke to me. At the end she was the one who ordered dessert and he didn’t make eye contact with her the whole time they spoke. It felt very strange and uncomfortable for both of us. Also, while I was ordering and he spoke to me, when I asked questions, I got the feeling that he did not take them seriously and was just trying to “get through” the ordering process instead of actually trying to help me get something good. Other than that, we had a good experience. I’d love to go back and hopefully get a more caring and respectful waiter!

    The food was mediocre, like something I would make for a weeknight dinner. Definitely overpriced. I’m not sure why this was recommended in the first place. We were surrounded by Italian restaurants so I’m guessing there were sponsored comments.

    I was put in charge of a large-ish group booking. So I was happy to book Becco because I could do the whole thing on OpenTable. Everyone else seemed to like it. I thought the food was fair, the drinks weak. But the main server was excellent.

    Subpar at best. The food was meh, as were the drinks and service. Despite the pasta being highly recommended in every review we read, getting it was definitely a mistake. There was no way it was made fresh as it was undercooked with a hard interior which was significantly lighter than the rest - exactly how my box pasta at home looks before it’s actually al dente. Would have liked to try something else as we saw a few people order the salmon and it looked good. No idea if it would have tasted better though and frankly we won’t be back to ever find out.
