Service was outstanding. Alan, our waiter, was great.
Becca forgot to celebrate my daughter’s birthday despite my writing a note about it.
The fixe price lunch menu is a bargain. The gnocchi were the best I ever tasted !!!!
Been there a few times and always consistently good food with good service. Definitely will be back.
Becco was wonderful. Right on Restaurant Row, just right for before the theater!
Got the Pasta special. Had a turkey raviolis, spaghetti w red sauce and spinach pesto with ceasar salad for $35. It was terrific! Unreal flavors. There is a different trio of pasta dishes daily.
Found a local favorite restaurant and loved every bit of it! The food, ambiance and the service.
the only pasta offering is the 3 pasta special --you cannot otherwise order pasta as a main course.
The hangar steak, ordered as medium rare was delivered blood dripping red; the chicken entree was overcooked and only had flavor if you ate the skin. The tables are set knee to knee and shoulder to shoulder, hence the noise level is deafening. Pre-theater, this might be the best of the choices near Broadway, but, surely there must be better options.
We arrived early and waited for our table at the bar. We were seated right inside the door and the wind was intense and we froze for a good part of the dinner. The waitress was very nice, but the service was poor. My cousin ordered a glass of wine and he never got it. We all ordered the pasta special and we barely got one serving of each of the three. The pasta was fair. Our friends were from out of state and we were going to a show after. We were greatly disappointed. We had been there before and will never return.
Used to be better
We were there for a pretheatre dinner. Had the pasta prix fix and it was great (and fun). Desserts were even better. Place was hopping.
Second time at BECCO. It's a very good restaurant. I like the daily pasta special, which is terrific.
Becco was recommended to us by two different people! The food was delicious, the staff was prompt, and they went out of their way to make sure we had a great experience! We will go back to Becco and will certainly recommend it to others!!
My sister and I loved our meal at Becco! We got to the restaurant a little early and enjoyed a drink at the bar. The atmosphere is wonderful, the sever gave us all kinds of options for the specials of the day. It is so relaxing and you can't be in a rush. You want to take in the experience.
The dress attire is casual. Don't worry about having blue jeans on, the servers themselves wear jeans.
The food was five star! So so good! There is something for everyone.
Highly recommended restaurant while visiting New York City and perfect location if you have theatre tickets!
Booked a 2:45 reservation, and arrived early. Waited for our family at the bar. Was told at 2:45, restaurant was closing until dinner at 4, and dinner order must be in by 3. We had no idea we were under a deadline. Lead to an unpleasant discussion with the manager, who reluctantly accommodated us. After having dined here numerous times, I dont think we will be returning . Theres too many other choices to have to deal with attitudes.
A must visit..3 times new York..3 times becco.. quick service , great choice.. would recommend the rump steak
We were staying at a hotel across the street and Becco was recommended to us - not only by the hotel mgr but also by another guest who was staying there. Becco does not disappoint! The food is excellent! My husband had the pasta of the day ( which is 3 pastas) and I had the chicken parmigiana (special that evening). The portions are very large. For dessert we had the choc mousse cake - melts in your mouth! Quite rich though - my husband and I shared it and still left over half! The prices are reasonable. And we loved that we were not forced into a price fixe menu like many of the other restaurants in the area. Tables are quite close together so it can be cozy but it adds to the experience! Highly recommend!
The service was great and the food was delicious. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a nice spot for a double date!
Excellent as always.
Wonderful experience with my aunt and sisters at this cozy, friendly and upbeat NY restaurant.
Great food good atmosphere
Out of town visitors
Becco has been the gold standard for casual Italian dining for me for over 10 years. I've celebrated several friends’ birthdays there, both small and large scale (40+ people in the back room), as well as my go to for out of town guests. And while the quality of the food and the wine selections remain strong, there really needs to be a serious overhaul on the service training. Granted, we did add to our party at the last minute and they were condescendingly accommodating; but regardless, the service from the moment we walked in was less than stellar. Aside from the half hour wait to be asked about drinks, it wasn’t until after we had been moved into the bar room to accommodate our additional guests (post ordering our dinner) did we hear a complete special list – after four different staff members came by with disparate information. Being re-sat in that bar room felt more of a punishment for bringing additional business to our bill as not only was it impossible for the staff to deliver the pastas, jackets and chairs (and people) kept being knocked into constantly by STAFF (not even patrons) without so much as an acknowledgment or an apology. Despite our final waiter being the most cordial, it was only after seeing my guest visibly upset did he even suggest that the pasta servers come back with a second offering.
Since Summer of 2017, each time I have returned, I have been consistently greeted with lukewarm to sub-par service. And while the food and wine options remain delightful (the Negromaro drank on Sunday was stellar, and the sinfonie of pastas was probably the best in a LONG while), I do question why I keep going back there when the management clearly hasn't been training their staff to continue the high service standards the old regime revered. Quite frankly, it will be a long time before I consider returning again.
I love this restaurant it is consistent, the food is delicious and I think a good value. I had the pasta special.
Delicious pre-theater lunch at the start at the holiday season. Food and service was swift, but not rushed.
Along the years Becco remains "the" Italian Restaurant in Manhattan
Booked Becco as a birthday Show-Dinner date for my GF. I couldn't get a reservation earlier than 6:45pm on Open Table. Show was over 4:30pm..walked around for an hour and got there 5:45pm and they graciously sat us. There were a number of open tables at that point. Gary was our server. He was attentive and responsive. I stayed with water and he made sure the glass was full. The food menu is comprehensive..so many choices. My GF usually has Chardonnay, but there wasn't one to her liking. She asked for a Prosecco. He brought a pink one she didn't like and removed it from the end bill. The carpaccio appetizer was great. She had short ribs and I had osso bucco. Both were outstanding. We shared a gelato dessert and a chocolate cake. Very good. The only real criticism was that it took an unusually long time between clearing the main dishes and getting us dessert menus. Got a little louder and a little busier by the time we finished. Would definitely consider going back.
I've been to Becco several times and it is always a great meal. The staff is mindful of show times and will ask you if you have tickets so they can make sure you are served in a timely manner. I highly recommend it. One of my faves on Restaurant Row.
No complaints on the food or the service.
But the restaurant needs a top to bottom cleaning.
Our table was on another level of wobbly
The chair needs to be wiped down and the tables need to be pulled away from the chair rail to be able to clean the whole perimeter
My chair basically fell apart. It needs to be tossed and the rest of the chairs need a good wiping down and checked to see if they’ve become unglued.
Loved my server and again the service was excellent, but the uniform of my service, the pocket was ripped and I started studying everyone else’s appearances.
It’s all about the details. And once I start to look, then I notice everything.
We loved the meal and the wine was excellent, but close down for a day and give that space a thoroughly good cleaning.
50 th anniversary
Food was amazing and staff was great. The prices are very reasonable, we love going to the restaurant ever time we are in the city!
This was our second visit to Becco in 5 years. I wish I could get there more often - the pasta's were fabulous - the antipasti was out of this world and the value was great - a bottle of wine for $35 - couldn't beat it. Such selections too.
Go - you will love it
I’ve been to Becco a couple of times with groups before going to the theater and this time didn’t disappoint. Great food, quick and reliable service. Able to feed us all within and hour and plenty of time to make the show.
Really nice lunch stop prior to a show mantinee. We sat upstairs so the noise level was lighter than down below. Service was excellent, and staff was very mindful of our showtime. We both had the hangar steak which was delicious. It was perfectly seasoned and accompanied by tender root vegetables. I typically do not eat steak out as I am fairly picky, but this Becco dish is exceptional. Thank you for another wonderful pre-theater experience.
Wonderful meal! Wonderful service! Perfect location if you are seeing a show. I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this dining experience!
The food was very mediocre and service was poor.
Although the food service was satisfactory, the service wasn’t great. We all ordered the unlimited 3 pasta dish deal but they only served us once compared to the large table next to us who had dishes delivered constantly. By the time they came to us with follow-up dishes we had to leave for theater.
Was a recommendation from a friend and it did not disappoint.
It is close / intimate quarters. Easy to make friends with your fellow diners.
Upscale family friendly.
Thankful we made a reservation.
Would recommend to others and would go back.
Food was excellent. Service was excellent
Only complaint was it was very loud and crowded but we were there on a holiday weekend. It probably isn’t as crowded or loud on a weekend
