While food is good, no individual pasta dishes available but unlimited pasta course much like Olive Garden is available. Reasonable prices for food and $31 bottles of wine but overall disappointing

EXTREMELY NOISY
antipasto average in that octopus and crab did not have much flavor
Pasta special was excellent, clearly homemade and Al Dente with flavorful and fresh sauces
My friend had the calamari appetizer as her entree and it was huge and she say delicious.
$31.00 dollar bottle of wines are a very good idea given that the least expensive glass of wine on the menu and apparently anywhere in the city, is $12.00.
Waitstaff pleasant although we sat for 10 minutes without a menu and had to ask for them.

The waitress left empty wine glasses on the small table throughout our meal. She was inches from the table a half dozen times, but never bothered to remove them. So there were 6 large wine glasses taking up all the space. When I mentioned it to her. She did not say anything and was extremely rude to us. Becco needs better wait staff!

We had family visiting from California and we knew we had to bring them to Becco. Loved the new addition upstairs. We had a great reunion, wonderful food and a wonderful waiter. One of the best Italian places in NYC by far. Thank you for a perfect night.

32 anniversary AFTER Jimmy Buffett play. Sat upstairs felt rushed and had VERY COLD WAITER DAVID. Food was good but experience would not make us go back. No thank you as he passed us it was as if we just arrived as we left. With all that’s going on with their restaurants I thought they would have implemented some new ways to treat there customers. Oh well it was worth trying again but I will not be going back. Was sadly disappointed.

Went to Becco before going to Come From Away. David, our server, was pleasant and polite and asked if we had a 2 o'clock show. The food was delicious and the service was great. I'd definitely go back again.

We were 4 couples. All enjoyed the food. Spinach under the lemon chicken was watery, but all the food was tasty. I am not a picky eater, but would have preferred a few more affordable choices. The service was excellent, all with smiles. A little pricey but all in all a lovely experience while in NYC for a few days

Becco is a charming two story restaurant with a nice bar if you have to wait. The trio of never ending pasta and sauces were excellent with servers regularly stopping by to refill your plate, for $9 it’s an excellent addition to your meal. I had the Veal Osso by Buco which was perfectly braised, falling off the bone. Braised with the bone upright so the marrow was in the bone and magnificent. Surprisingly, the $30 bottles of wine were not bad and paired well with our meal. We were a party of 3, 3 courses, 2 bottles of wine, $200. I was very happy with both the quality and the value.

The service was horrific! We sat there for 1.5 hours and our waitress never checked on us or refilled our water. We were able to grab other waitstaff as they walked by but that is not acceptable. Additionally the food was just bad. We ordered the special 3 pastas and not even one was good. They lacked seasoning or were cold and inedible. After looking forward to dining there I️ left just disappointed. Never again!

Very happy with my first experience at Becco. Food was delicious, service was very good--help recommend items and navigate the wine list. We were seated on time and everyone was pretty friendly. Tables are tight but this is Manhattan!
I would certainly visit this restaurant again.

Arguably one of the best Italian restaurants in New York. The pasta of the day - 3 different pastas made daily - is always a good choice, 19.95 for lunch, 24.95 for dinner including salad. I had the short rib special and it was probably the best I have ever had. It is always a

This stalwart of NYC restaurants holds up well over time! The food is delicious! I'm still a fan of the roving pasta bar and often get it as a side when I want to enjoy the other entrees and specials. The wine selection is enjoyable, as is the policy to encourage a bottle with your Italian feast (at just $31 any bottle). The restaurant decor is a bit worn down, and while I love the atrium, it really needs a cleaning from the roof:)

My wife and I went here after a Sunday matinee on Father's Day. We were immediately seated for our 5:00 reservation. The wait staff were friendly and attentive. We each had a glass of wine that was very good. We split the mussel appetizer ( spicier than I prefer) and both of us had the special Symphony di Pasta which was great, although the spice in the Penne Bolognese-- either cinnamon or nutmeg-- really didn't do it for me. The other two pastas -- a sort of vegetable lasagna with a bechamel sauce was superb as was the papperdelle with marinara . We split a Panna Cotte for desert. Very filling. Would definitely go back again.

This was the best dining experience I have had in some time. The food was delicious. Because I found the Caesar salad mediocre, I rated the food very good rather than outstanding. However, our server was outstanding.
She was warm, thorough and best of all? Non intrusive! Have been telling everyone about this terrific experience.
