Great place. We go there every year when we are in New York doing the Christmas festivities.
Great staff great food great wine just a fantastic experience
We visit NYC every year in December and go to Becco
Cramped. Hair in food. Can’t even hear yourself think. Sloppy service.
Been here a dozen times and the first that I wasn't "wowed". Veal chop was ok - not seasoned enough. Wines now $33, up from $20 not too long ago. And it seems like they squeeze more tables in every time I'm there. I'll be back though!
Visited NYC with my family. Old school ambience , great food & good sevice!
Overall the experience was disappointing. It began with the bread basket that contained stale bread of two sorts and bread sticks that were the most edible. Instead of a good olive oil for dipping, an aoli was served to go with the bread...it was tasteless. Next we ordered a Cesar salad "served tableside." It was brought to the table, a pile of very limp Romaine lettuce with a few bits of limp Lacinato kale and a tasteless dressing. The "table service" was a waitperson scraping most of the salad onto our two plates. The main dishes were several notches better than this poor beginning. But, even these lacked the attention to detail that would have made them stand out. For example, the gigante limas that were included with the rappini and house made sausage did not have the creamy inner texture that that makes eating them so special. The sausage was flavorful but a little overcooked and the rappini was properly cooked with a good amount of garlic underpinning the greens. The clear standout of the meal was the Aperol spritzer with savignon blanc and procecco. Basically, not a place to go for good Italian food despite the restaurants provenance.
First time at Becco - service and food were awesome. We spent time at the bar and found customers and staff to be friendly and engaging! We ate dinner in the back rooms which were very accommodating and fun. Becco is a lively place and great atmosphere- highly recommended!
I have lived in New York forever and somehow just found this place. The food is very good and shockingly, they have a good wine list for bottles under $35. Who does that in New York City? The entrées include a delicious salad and we’ve been there three times in the last month, having just discovered it.
Very disappointed in our meal this time. A few of us ordered the pasta medley and it was boring and we were wishing we made a different choice.
Our table was really jammed in the front room and our chairs were hit by several waiters passing our table.
Amazing pasta. Can't stop raving about the Gnocchi I had. The staff, the food, the ambiance above and beyond. Make reservations, have an empty stomach and prepare to be blown away!
Great service & great food!!
they were incredibly accommodating even when we turned out to only be 3 people
The food was excellent and fresh and the staff was amazing!!
The pasta deal cannot be beat, although the first plate was more than enough. Delicious food and great service. A little too noisy for conversation though.
Awesome. The food was utterly perfect
Amazing food, amazing service, great prices for the best quality ! can’t say enough good things about this restaurant!
Some changes made the overall experience less comfortable. After renovations, there are no restrooms on the second dining level. Tables are crowded closer together, making it difficult to walk to a table. Felt as if we were sitting on top of each other.
Quality of food excellent and prices very good.
The food was delicious, and the service was wonderful, as always. It is our holiday routine to dine at Becco's before attending a show. The restaurant never disappoints.
We used to visit Becco around 4-5 years ago before a Broadway show. This time we were NOT happy. First of all, we were crammed into a corner table for 4. Across from us was a large table with kids and parents. Kids were polite and not loud, but every time a server needed to go to the large table my husband and our friend were nudged. This was particularly annoying while trying to eat our lunch. Next thing, we ordered a bottle of wine and when finding out it was not the year that was noted on the menu, we changed the wine. When the bill came, we paid, but after reviewing my husband notice we were being charged for two bottles of wine. We brought it to our server's attention, but if not, I guess we would have been stuck paying for two not one. The food was not as good as I remember. Red sauce on the rigatoni was bland and shrimp on the fettucine tasted like canned shrimp. Not good for a restaurant that hails the name of Lidia Bostanich. We usually don't eat in New York before a show and we doubt we will again.
Great food, but massive portions! Good wine list. Server could have been a little more attentive but they were quite busy the night we went. Will definitely come back!
Spills on floor that a guest had to wipe up
Extravagant in portion sizes. Crowded on a Tuesday night. Wine list good if pricey, bourbon and Scotch offerings unexciting.
Our party of four enjoyed the triple pasta special, the pulled pork entree, the baked shrimp, and salad with baby scallops. Everything was delicious and I would highly recommend!
A zoo before theater - rushed not relaxing. Food is good and the special pasta is a bargain.
Pre theatre efficient and solid. We were seated upstairs hence the noice level rating. Otherwise it would have been a four.
Tables too close together....not sure what kind of fish we had .. not enough room to be comfortable
We sat in the back rear and light ioom by the sky light. Service was good and the food was excellent. We all hd the 3 pasta special and one of the many $31 wine bottles. TheIt was not my first time but one of my friends who ate with us said we should make this a regular event. Value was good and the food was wonderful. i look forward to a return visit.
My girlfriend and I went into the city to see the tree and enjoy the holiday sights and booked lunch at Becco. It was amazing. Service was great as was the atmosphere, but the food was even better. My girlfriend had the Pollo al Limone which was an extremely tasty but light chicken dish; she loved every bite. I had Pesce Spada. It was a grilled & lightly breaded swordfish with spaghetti squash, stewed cherry tomatoes, toasted pumpkin seeds & pumpkin seed oil. It was truly one of the best swordfish meals I have ever had! If all of this wasn't enough, the prices were very reasonable. If you are looking for a great Italian Restaurant which isn't just limited to pasta, you have to give it a try! You won't be disappointed. I can't wait to go back for dinner!!
Meal was wonderful. Downside was table next to us had a party of 8 who got drunk and loud and no one from the restaurant came to quiet them. So disappointing to see especially since this was at lunch
Food was amazing as reviews promised!! However, service did it live up to their reputation. Reserved online beforehand. Waited over 30mins past our reservation time. Would recommend for groups of 2-4 people. They seemed to struggle to accommodate our group of 6. Once seated, server didn’t talk to us for over 10mins. I had to go and ask who our server was before he came over. Didn’t tell us about daily specials - had to specifically ask for them. Disappointing service as I had read rave reviews about it online.
Great dinner, great service
Electric atmosphere- lots of hustle and bustle but still felt warm and welcoming from the entire staff
Our waiter was incredibly rude. He single handedly ruined a 60th birthday dinner.
The food was excellent and the service superb. Everyone should try Becco at least once while in NYC. The prices are very reasonable and the staff very pleasant.
Always a great experience. A must do dining experience.
Awesome service, great food...no issues
Honestly, Becco exceeded expectations. My wife and I wanted great Italian food at realistic prices for our first night out since becoming parents. Becco on its portions and quality upheld what Lidia wanted for this restaurant from the start.
Plus as a bonus I ran into Joe Bastianich and chatted for a second near then kitchen. While he was notably busy it was impressive to see a highly successful chef and restauranteur take the time to still get hands on with his starting point location and to chat with a culinary fan.
Only negative of the meal was the wine and that was on us as we chose the bottle. Love the intent of the $31 list but our choice was far from enjoyable. As we are more versed with California wine it was user error, not a ding on the restaurant.
Highly recommend, come hungry and enjoy a truly exceptional Italian experience at a fraction of the cost.
My wife had the hanger steak and I the
Zuppa di Pesce Misto mainly because Joe raves about his mothers on Master Chef. It was honestly multiple levels above the quality I was expecting for the price. Grazie Joe!
I arrived at the restaurant with a stalemate of people entering and exiting. After waiting a few minutes I was able to enter the restaurant. I was seated quickly and told a waiter would be with me in 1 minute. 10 minutes later I was still waiting. From there things went fairly smoothly, although I wasn’t necessarily sure of the pasta being placed on my plate. The bus boy who kept my water glass filled was very kind. The food was delicious; I especially enjoyed the antipasti. I’ll be back.
Great Northern Italian food. Not too heavy on the pasta. Wonderful wine..
A little too crowded... apparently there are 7 dining rooms within this restaurant.
