Food is always good especially the pasta special. They always get you out in time for a show. Definitely worth coming back when going to a show.

Over priced pasta that at one point had to be scrapped off the table as it was dished up splashing over my top, not even an apology , plus side is the atmosphere was good , all in all , with 3 glasses of red wine costing $40 the total bill was $104, plus the mandatory 20% very expensive for pasta

The meals were excellent. The value received was very good. Tables are to close together hard to hold private conversations. But would definitely dine their again.

Fantastic across the board! The crispy prosciutto appetizer was life changing! Efrain and Marco took care of us at the bar and those guys were slangin drinks like pros! Had to wait an hour with a reservation but they made up for it with the bar service!

A lot of energy. I've been a Lidia fan for decades, and kudos to her for preparing her son so well for sticking to the traditions of italian dining, and all the while ensuring that it operates in such a fashion that meets and exceeds the expectations of contemporary diners...great meatballs with my grandmother's; I mean Lidia's Sunday Sauce!

The best Italian food (any food, really !) we have had in a long time!! Everything - from the Caesar salad, the prosciutto, the amazing pasta dishes, and all the desserts we shared -were ALL amazing! The service was also top notch! Our waiter was attentive and friendly but never “over bearing” . The staff, although extremely busy, was pleasant and looked like they loved working there. All of this made for a very pleasant experience. Whenever we go back to New York, we will definitely go back to Becco! Love that place!!

The food is first class. Went on a Thursday night with reservations. My only criticism is that it is very crowded and the noise level is very high to the point where we were almost shouting across the table. Unfortunately this atmosphere distracted from the overall dining experience.

Food was great but they seated us near the door and people were holding the door open so we were freezing as blasts of winter air blew in at regular intervals. Refused to give us another table despite the fact that at the time we complained there were many empty four tops. Place did entirely fill up as is popular pre theater. Service was very good otherwise. Loved the food.

Enjoyed lunch with friends. Granted it is a busy time of he year but felt that we were being rushed by the wait staff. We were hovered over even after saying we needed more time.
You should consider a no cell policy. There was a large party near us that the only time their yelling over one another was when the various cute (bells, whistles sirens) went off during the meal. would not call it relaxing at all.

Enjoyed Becco a lot! ONLY downside is how they cram people in too close. Might as well just push all the tables together. Other than that it was a great experience.

We had a 12.45 reservation. Very crowded, place in a corner table on the second floor. A table for 4 was one foot removed. Waiter was fine, we had dined there a number of times before and this was not one of our better experiences. We may return but hope for a better table and a more positive dining experience.

We enjoyed being upstairs, nice and cozy and quiet. I have been up there before and asked to be seated there again.
My friends liked it very much, the food is great and the ambiance is very nice.

We had a marvelous time at Beccos. Had a noon reservation for three people on matinee day and were seated within 10 minutes of our arrival. Unfortunately we were seated very near the front door so each time new guests arrived we were treated to a blast of cold air. That and the noise level of the restaurant are the only detractors. We all ordered the pasta special and each had a different favorite. I must say I'd never had gnocchi served as it was, about an inch thick and a 2" x 2" square. To me it was more like a potato kugel or potato cake, but the flavor was excellent and was actually my favorite of the meal. My daughter loved the sauce on the rigatoni and my husband loved it all but especially the fettuccine with arugula and bay scallops.

Have visited Becco many, many times over the years! Love it! But, have to say last night they were uncharacteristically off a bit. Forgot our bean dip and had to ask several times. Sat for quite a bit and then our waiter asked if we had any questions before we ordered. He did not even tell us the specials or the three pasta options at this point. People next to us sat for a good 20 minutes before even being acknowledged. No bread, Olives, etc, delivered until they had to ask for it. Usually it is delivered before we even have a chance to sit down. Then felt at the end of dinner we were rushed out the door. Dessert menu was delivered by our waiter and in less than 2 minutes another gentleman (possibly the manager) asked if we’re having dessert. We declined and he could not have given us our check any faster. Will we go back to Becco? Definitely, yes. Look upon last night as unusual. We shall see going forward.

Michael was our waiter. The restaurant was very busy and he was so attentive. Very personable and joked around with us.
