It's been a long time since we could eat indoors at one of our favorite restaurants, and I have to say it was as good as it's always been. The burrata with broccoli rabe appetizer was fantastic, as were all of our entrees. The $35 wine list is the best deal in NYC. So glad that we could support a NY institution and can't wait till we go back again.

Love the 3 pasta specials... and the $35 wine list. Great now that the chess for the pasta is fresh and grated at the table. Miss the Desert Sampler for 2 = The BEST!!!

One of my favorite places in NY to eat. Food was amazing. Service was amazing. My family and I just had our Easter dinner and it did not disappoint. Next time you guys go there you have to order the appetizer meatballs. Best meatballs I’ve ever had.

We returned to New York and this was our first indoor dining experience since the Pandemic.
We made the correct choice in starting with Becco. First the food was outstanding, as a close second the service and dining experience was outstanding. We realized that the indoor dining experience is an experience that is second to none!

Wonderful exceptional scheduled anomaly is a lifetime experience you should do, the sooner, the more enlightened your perception of homemade Italian food will be. Don’t wait. Only opened a couple weeks ago, ( covid) makes it the perfect time to get that very personal treatment that you feeling like TruePalace Royalty, it’s not , it’s just Authentic Italian love for family and food. A very different dedication to homemade and made for you. The sous chef runs the sauté pans straight out to the dining room, where they plate the food at your seat. With all the , extra’s, add-ons, and the “hey leave that out” is all done at your seat. They even return during “tasting Menu” to offer “top it off” ... which is really 2nds.... you will think you’re at G-Ma’s house. Everything made on premise, and the breads are too good to deny yourself a second basket. Truly exceptional.
This place is so very special, that it’s all.... fat free , calorie free, gluten free, ... it’s the place that you should never hold back.... never. Try the pasta sampler, they had lobster ravioli, I don’t eat seafood. They offered several subs. I took creamy truffled risotto.... please don’t wake me up.... I’m having a terrific dream.... I got a walk-in, no wait seat at Lidia’s “Becco”...
I hate to say this virus has an upside but the business world as a whole needs understanding and loyalty to show up. Not just love but reservations. I’m taking advantage and getting to eat at all my bucket list dream restaurants without the typical weeks and months wait list. No waiting and they’re very grateful, as I am , that they are here.
Sincerely and gratefully looking forward to returning.

We arrived and we're seated imeadiatly the hostess was very accommodating we made outside reservations but my wife was chilly so we asked to be seated indoors and it was no problem. We were seated in a large room with tables more than six feet apart and everything was pristine. We started with the calamari appetizer...it was great crunchy and tender done perdectly we also ordered a bottle of montepulicano and it was an excellent wine at an acceptional value. My wife had the Joe's veal chop...wow and I had the fish special branzino it was a whole fish fliet at tables side and it was the best I ever tasted. Dessert was lacking but the espresso was perfect. Great meal great service great value. Do your self a favor and give Becco a try.

I’ve eaten in Becco‘s many times. The food never disappointments. My favorite dish there is Osso Buco. The service adds to the experience.
I do miss the crowd due to the pandemic but I’m sure that soon will change.
