They get you to the theater on time. The All you can east past deal at $29.95 is not a good deal if you are an average diner. Most pastas in good restaurant are priced below $30

I make sure to eat at Becco's each time I visit NYC. It is outstanding with this time being no different. The food, ambiance, and wait staff all make for an excellent evening. Each time I try something new with the exception of an appetizer. The calamari is a must! This time we tried the Bresaola and my table mates had mixed reviews. However, I highly recommend Becco. You won't go wrong.

Becco has never disappointed me. Caesar salad (plentiful) and "pasta symphony" is always fun. Sauces on this visit were pesto, Bolognese, and tomato w/basil. Bolognese was changed out to mushroom ravioli because I don't eat meat. Wines are now $33/bottle. A good price for NYC. Homemade sorbet was extremely flavorful - blueberry, cranberry, and passion fruit. Was seated in the "back" room so weren't crowded next to anyone - a big plus for me. Service was excellent. I love Becco!

Our family really enjoyed their dinners. The food was delicious, flavorful and fresh! Sitting in the quieter back room, also aided in our enjoyment of the evening.
Only one slight problem, the restaurant was so crowded, it made it very difficult for us to walk through the bar area on our way to our table. We will be back though!

The food was wonderful, and our waitress was great. Well priced. However it was extremely crowded and the tables are jammed together.
I would recommend Becco especially if one goes at times when the theatre crowds vanish.

A little cramped but a terrific place to dine
Great food, great value. Had a lite lunch at a restaurant across from the theater. Later after the show we had a lavish dinner at BECCO. Our BECCO bill with drinks and desserts was just $40 more than our lunch. Perfect place...love it.

Have been at Becco many times in the past and it was excellent as always, the only thing I would recommend a little more attention to the bathrooms especially when the restaurant is crowded like it was this past Sunday. This won’t stop me for come again, it is my favorite restaurant!

Had their three pasta luncheon special - 2 of the 3 were nothing more than some pasta with a sauce - really disappointing; the third was a little more imaginative; the accompanying misto was not very good
I won't go back

Becco is a great choice for a pre-theater meal. We had lunch on this visit but I've had dinner there also.
The staff is very friendly, efficient and will definitely get you to the show on time! The tables are quite close together, but the noise level wasn't too loud. We were seated on the second floor which is a bit bland and lacks the character and ambiance of the first floor. When I go back I will make sure to request a table on the first floor.
We both had the "Pasta Trio" meal which includes a salad. The 3 pastas were all delicious and unlimited, so we didn't have room to try dessert! The prices were incredibly reasonable given the quality of the restaurant. That's probably why it's always crowded!

Had the best time for lunch! The food and service were great and they surprised us with a candle in our dessert for our anniversary.

Also- all bottles of wine are $33. How can you go wrong?

Our meal at Becco was thoroughly enjoyable! The food was great, service was wonderful. Our table was a little tight space wise and the noise level was a bit high because it's a small space and was crowded, but neither of those work for hinges would keep me from returning. The meal was a delight! It was disappointing that we were too full for dessert, because everything else was so delicious I'm sure I missed out on amazing desserts!

Becco remains one of the best values in midtown: great pasta and a solid wine list for a reasonable price. Young couples or friends who don't want to apply for a mortgage in order to have a quality night out will have plenty of options here. The staff is friendly and attentive, and the can answer any question about the menu.
The only downside is the tightness of the space—guests waiting by the bar for their table have to dodge the waitstaff or stand uncomfortably close to people sitting at tables. It's a good reason to come during off-peak hours, but Becco is always in demand, so there aren't many off-peak hours.
