Becco has always been our”go to” restaurant. It was a different experience this time. The service was poor. So many different people waiting the table. We had to keep asking for the same thing. The food was ok but not as we expected and experienced previously.

All of the anticipated pleasure we expected. About 5 years ago my now 16 year old twins brought me here to thank me for taking them to see “Finding Neverland”. We live in California and have been trying to find you ever since and finally we found you. We missed you and will keep you on our “Best NYC Restaurants” list. We saw Hadestown this afternoon before dinner and it was our pleasure to return! Thank you.

We were very impressed with the caesar salad, which had a lovely blend of anchovies and lemon, neither overpowering, rather elegant. The antipasti was also very tasty, with grilled vegetables and heavenly marinated octopus slices and delicious swordfish. We had not intended to order the Prix Fixe pasta special, but the ladies at us next table raved about it, so we both decided to go for it and were glad we did... delicious. All 3 were exceptional; the spinach and cheese stuffed ravioli were delicate and divine, the pesto fusilli was probably the best pesto I’ve had and the spaghetti with shrimp was crisp and spicy. Needless to say, we didn’t have room for dessert, but the couple on the other side raved about their sorbets. I highly recommend Becco.

Despite reservation, we had an extended wait prior to getting our table over 30 minutes and there is limited space for waiting for tables. The wait staff was excellent and food was also good. The restaurant is loud but that was fine for our group.

Classic Nyc spot that we usually love...this experience was made less enjoyable because our tiny room off of the upstairs dining room was overcrowded and very hot. Our service was fantastic and the good was delicious, however.

Food is still fantastic but something felt a bit off during my recent visit. The esthetic of the restaurant appears quite worn and the service was quite slow and sloppy.

The waiter which we were assigned was a trainee and was been chaperoned by a senior waiter. I personally thought the trainee was doing an amazing job, but the senior waiter made the trainee feel very uncomfortable and worthless . In addition the senior waiter was not very personable and made us all feel uncomfortable with his behavior and was not accommodating.

We have dined at Becco on numerous occasions and I have to say on this occasion was not to the normal standard. This atmosphere was created by the waiter and just to be clear IT WAS NOT THE TRAINEE.

We went for a pre- theater meal. They asked when we arrived what time our shot was and were very conscious of the time. We had the chef’s nightly pasta which was the three fresh selections brought around to the table. Excellent!

This was our second time at Becco. We had a ten minute wait with a reservation - not a problem. The bread tray was very good as was the accompanying bean spread. We requested more spread twice and never received it. The Caesar salad was a bit disappointing. There were two very small pieces of shaved Parmesan and the dressing was thin and lacking. I had the unlimited three pastas as an entree. The non-meat option was appreciated. All three were excellent and I was filled to the gills after one portion of each. My husband had the beef dish and said it was, "Very good." I also requested a diet soda and never received it. The decor is very nice, but as is the case with many restaurants, the noise level is crazy loud. The general feeling is a bit tight and folks (mainly the servers) hustling to and fro. We had one cocktail each both were awesome and the price one would expect to pay in NYC. Overall, a nice dining experience.

Had friends in town on their vacation. Took them here as its one of the few open before the 2pm matinees, and also could accommodate a family with a baby. Food was excellent, service prompt, and bill was reasonable. I will go here again.

I've been coming to Becco for the last decade and continue to be a fan. Their food is great and the service is exceptional. It's always bustling but they get you in, out and on to your way (if you're going to a show). Love the pasta specials too (duh). I'll be back again soon.

Usually very consistent--quick and very good meal before the theater. This time, our food came very slowly, despite the waiter continually saying it's coming now. Once we finally got our meals, we had 7 minutes to eat and run out before the show!
