Unfortunately this visit to Becco was disappointing. Both entrees were so salty that we could barely finish our food. Such a disappointment as I have eaten here many times and enjoyed my meal.
Delicious food and excellent service.
Becco is a price performer and must have for prebroadway lunch. We had not been since October and in all the years coming this was the only poor service experience I ever had.
I frequent Becco but this time I was not in rush to catch a show. Our waiter was a pure delight and was very supportive of us having a long lunch. Very helpful with a wine list and very attentive without us feeling rushed or hovered upon.
My servers name was Mike and he was absolutely phenomenal. Consistently checked up on the table without seeming clingy or annoying. He was hilarious and made great recommendations on what we should order. We ultimately went with all of his choices and we were not disappointed. THANKS MIKE
Cramped dinning space, noisy, not a cozy place to take a date. Food was just ok..
Amazing atmosphere,service and food. By far one of our favorite restaurants in NYC.
Food was just ok, service was good
What I liked: The 3 pastas of the day + Caesar salad is a terrific pre-theater dinner at a reasonable price. The pastas were delicious and all very different. The service was great. We were seated about 15-20 minutes after our reservation time, making us nervous about making it to the theater in time. But when we expressed our concern to the hostess, she immediately notified our waiter and he couldn't have been more accommodating.
What I didn't like: The place was a zoo! It may have been that it was Valentine's Day, so I'd like to go back another time to check it out since the food was worth it. But there was a huge crowd at the entrance and around the bar waiting for their tables. We were seated about 15-20 minutes after our reservation time, though we had gotten there a few minutes early. The crowd never diminished the whole time we were there, and our table was barely out of the crowd of people waiting.
As I said, I think the food and the service were great so I'm going to give the restaurant another chance and would still recommend it, especially if you don't have time constraints.
Great pre theatre !!! Yes they do overbook but they get you out in time
Everything was amazing! The hostess was patient with us when we asked to move away from the door. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. And the food was out of this world!! The bottomless pasta special is so worth it.
The homemade pasta was excellent! I highly recommend getting the 3-pasta dinner. The wine list was not only reasonable but also very good wine. We will be back!
The food and service were fantastic! We have friends going to see a show in 2 weeks and we will definitely recommend this restaurant. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
Third visit to Becco...always a great choice while in NYC. Location, service and food is always a great choice. The three pasta selection is always a winner. I enjoy the lemon chicken with mushroom risotto as alternate to the pasta. Always look forward to returning.
Excellent food and service! We really enjoyed being at Becco ❤️
It was great as always
Overall good, food was ok nothing special. Waiter was very attentive, so service very good and attentive from walking in to getting to a show afterward
This is a great place for dinner or lunch. When I go prescient, I love the tri-pasta special. It comes out quickly and is unlimited. Yum. Gives you e bough time to eat, relax and chat before a show. Love it.
They even put a candle in the biscotti dessert and sang for my friend’s birthday. It was delicious.
So tasty. Wine options and prices are exceptional. Really affordable for all that you get. Pasta choice were amazing, of course. Server Gary was awesome too!
Food, wine and service was excellent. Highly recommended 👍
This restaurant was amazing. Service, timely for theater with a high end dinning experience. Will be back!
We had a noon reservation and we were seated quickly. The food was delicious, her waiter was attentive and it was a good lunch before the theater.
Excellent food and service. The $20.95 prixfix lunch includes a great Cesar salad or mixed antipasto AND the 3 different pastas that were served fresh from the kitchen. The selection of 3 kinds was terrific. Will be back for dinner!
The food is always excellent. But the ambiance is always competing with an extremely high noise level. Perhaps if they removed a few tables so that you weren’t sitting in your neighbor’s lap, that would decrease the noise and improve the ambiance.
My husband and I dined on a Tuesday evening and we thought the crowds would be a little less, but not so. I had the pasta sampler which was excellent but I had to flag down the sever to inquire about the third choice and it still took 20 minutes before it arrived- not really a great idea to interrupt your entree by that much time. My husband enjoyed excellent lemon chicken.
Minor issues- we’ll always return.
My husband and I come here every Valentine's Day and this year, we came a few days early. We were seated at a table right next to the waiter's station, which was bustling and a little loud. The pasta dishes seemed to take longer to get around to our side of the restaurant, as my husband and the gentleman at the next table waited quite some time for the dishes to come around for a refill. Other than that, great as usual.
We always have a great dinner at Becco, it never disappoints! I love the pasta & bottle of wine special but the other menu option are also good. Even if you run a little late they are accommodating and their timing is perfect for a pre theater meal. The staff is very attentive and they keep you on time for your Broadway show! Thanks again for a fabulous experience!
Great food great service a perfect place to go before the theater
Becco is a dependably good restaurant with amazing pasta as well as their other entrees. The three pastas offered as one of their signature dishes can’t be beat. Service is always incredible.
My partner and I ordered from the specials menu. I had the Branzino, a fish, I order very often. It was the best I have ever had. My partner had the the veal piccata which was also very good. We loved the hot antipasto. The wait staff was very cordial and friendly. We have been here many times and will return next time we go to the theatre. You can’t beat the pricing. There is something for everyone.
Fun place for dinner. Nice interior, good food, and the wait staff is very helpful
Always a wonderful experience. On this visit I was overwhelmed by the heavy handed use of salt in the Ripeni and the shredded pork entree. It didn’t stop me from enjoying it! But it should be looked at.
We really enjoyed this. Service was a little slow but they wete very busy. Food was outstanding.
A little too crowded for me but food was good.
We were visiting from Canada, and my Hair Dresser recommended Becco. We were not disappointed, my favourite dish was the cheesecake, it was fantastic!
I had the pasta and enjoyed two out of three. I would skip the spaghetti and tomato sauce the next time and double up on the other two.
My friend left her credit card there and was so relieved when you called her back the next day to say you had it.
We had a very enjoyable experience.
Becco is well known due to its owner. Which makes for a very very crowded restaurant. Service was very slow and had to ask for refills on drinks.
Once food was delivered the flavor was very good. Would not go during restaurant week. I suspect most patrons are tourists. Would look for a Italian place locals frequent.
Everything just perfect
I chose Becco primarily because I wanted osso buco and the reviews sounded promising. The veal osso buco was outstanding along with everything else we had. Even the martini was excellent. And a full bottle of wine for $35 was an amazing deal.
We had a post theater dinner with friends. The 4 of us were able to talk about the show and enjoy the delicious food and wonderful service at the renowned Becco.
