    This is the second time we have eaten at Becco. The food is delicious, the dining room is quite attractive and the service is excellent. The only problem is the horrific noise level. Way too high for pleasant conversation. This restaurant is a good choice for pre-theater.

    I’ll start by saying I should have called to see if they have gluten free options. They don’t. They could have if they were more flexible and offered substitutions but they don’t. Two of us had some food issues and our waitress acted as if she hadn’t heard of gf or dairy issues. She was very uncaring. I asked if potatoes could be substituted for pasta and she said no that I could order a side dish. Unacceptable. I ended up finding something and the lamb, while fatty, and $11 potatoes were good but much too expensive for lunch. A smaller portion could be offered. The rest of our party of four found the food ok but unremarkable and thought the service was meh. The kicker was the excuse given by the manager when I mentioned something on my way out. He said it wouldn’t matter if they had gf pasta since it all went in the same pot of water. Start another pot for goodness sake!

    We've come here as a regular group of friends every few months for the past couple of years and have always had an enjoyable time. We get the Sinfonia Di Paste every time; it's a delicious and generously-portioned value for the price. Thank you, Becco, for being our regular "Friends Dinner" spot!

    Food was fine, but not served at the same time for our party of four. One diner had to request the 3rd pasta 3 times and wait 15 min staring at an empty plate before it arrived. Good option for pre-matinee dining for lunch.

    The food was good. Did NOT like sitting in the back section next to where the bus boy kept throwing the very loud dishes into a black tub! He could have put them in gently so as not to make patrons jump every time the plates hit each other as he tossed them in. It really took away from what was otherwise a very enjoyable experience! We will try again sometime but will request to sit in another area!!

    We liked the ambiance, trying to be old-school NYC Italian, and the menu read like my grandmother was cooking. The place is fairly huge for a NYC restaurant. We also liked that they automatically delivered bread, dip and olives to the table. Bread was delicious. The stuffed clams were a B+. The veal piccata special had amazing flavor, but the veal itself was tough to cut and chewy. Decent wine selection and good martinis.
