If you are looking for a restaurant near the theater district this is a safe bet and provides prompt service especially for a pre-theater dinner. However, the atmosphere feels more like a mess hall where the food may satisfy an appetite but looks and feels mass produced.

When we got there, it was very crowded; however, we only had to wait about 7-10 minutes to be seated. We were taken upstairs to a cute table for 2 and were treated with a box of different breads and water. Our waiter was very attentive and had great recommendations. Our food was excellent as well. Highly recommend.

Das Preis-u.Leistungsverhältnis ist gut. Der Service waren und die Info zur Speisekarte war sehr gut.
Was uns angeregt hat, dieses Restaurant zu besuchen war, a) in walking distance und b) dass jede Flasche Wein "nur" $ 31,00 gekostet hat. Wir wollten endlich mal einen Wein trinken, denn die Preise pro Glas in USA bewegen sich gerne bei $ 14,00.
Außerdem hatten wir das Glück noch 2 Plätze um 18.45 h zu erwischen. Das Lokal war brechend voll.

We thoroughly enjoyed dinner at Becco. The food was excellent and the service outstanding. The table for five was a little tight but Manhattan real estate is scarce. The bottle of Tuscan red recommended by our server for $31 was excellent. We had a 4:30 reservation, perfect for a 7:00 curtain at Hamilton just a block away.

I was disappointed, my cousin born in Denver, which she lived all her life moved to Sarasota FL 2 years ago and came to visit me for a week, so I wanted to take her to the September 11 museum and memorial followed by a Broadway play "Come From Away" followed by a nice sit down dinner in a nice restaurant whose owner is Lidia Bastianich, I believe it is her sons restaurant. We arrived after the show, exactly on time for our reservation 4:30 pm, a bunch of hostessess were gathered around a desk. Kind of ignored us for awhile, and we were ushered through the kitchen and to this table all the way in back of restaurant when the whole place was pretty empty for the most part. We wanted a nice pasta dish like the classic spaghetti and meatballs, or I was tasting for pasta with Alfredo, but of course not anything as simple as that on the menu. So we opted for Cesear salad, which was nothing special. In fact Olive Garden salad is soooo much better, as is any other place. It was a complete disappointment. We then had meatballs, yes just meatballs which were tasty, because we didnt want to eat a trio of pastas for 24.99 each, and that was just to much starch, and too heavy for ride home and too big and you had to order meatballs separate. We then shared their sampler of desserts for 7.50 each which was so tiny it should have been for one person. one of the items a custard cake was awful. None of these desserts was anything exceptional. None of them. I had a glass of wine saviginon from their Bastianich label which was good. My cousin had two tonic water and bitters. Our waiter never told us specials or at least not all of them; we over heard a waitress telling folks behind us. Save your money, believe me go somewhere else. After that I will no longer be watching her cooking show or buying her books. Very angry that after a great day this had to happen! ;-(

My go to place pre theater for quality food, reliable service, and atmosphere conducive to warm and special conversation. We had outstanding seared salmon and shared flavorful cheesecake and great coffee. Becco is my favorite place for two or ten and there is a meal to delight everyone. I look forward to the special pasta lunch on my next visit, one of the tastiest and best value lunches in Manhattan.

Food was great...always is. Greg M was our server and he took our order and checked on us and left the bill, and that was about it. The table next to us had a server who mentioned all the specials to her table which we never heard about from Greg and they sounded really good. Would just have liked more engagement.

Poor service. You feel squeezed for money. We wait 70 minutes for the wrong course and the waiter reaction was...you can get it we will not charge you. Then another 15 minutes for a simple pasta but when they were ready to serve it not even the plate was on the table. A wasted dinner in NYC

Becco is a NYC/theatre district gem. The food and service are always great and the wine (especially by the bottle) is reasonably priced for terrific wine. The pasta sampler dinner is an incredible value and anything else we've had a Becco (been there numerous times) is very, very good!
