    Becco is centrally located in the theatre district which is why I assume it is so popular. The food however is basic at best with little to no flavor. Don’t fall for the all you can eat 3 pasta deal. The spaghetti was the only pasta worth eating, the gnocchi was a sheet pan of baked mashed potatoes and the last pasta was so bland i only had two bites. I would say for the price it is great for families before and after a show but for a good Italian meal look elsewhere.

    Where should I start! From beginning to end the worst experience I have ever had. They sat us near the bus boy station where it was constant traffic and very loud. We order the 3 pastas with the Ceacers salads the orecchiette pasta was so loaded with garlic and the broccoli rabe was so hard. The pasta with with basil was supposed to be Al dente it was barely cooked, and the polenta cubes were tasteless. I think you should watch very carefully how the food comes out of the kitchen. And as far as the service, they were very rude and inattentive. A tourist TRAP! A very disappointed customer.

    My husband had the pork chops and they were tender and delicious. My friend had the halibut special and she said it was very well prepared and terrific. I had the stuffed peppers with rigatoni. It was a full plate and was very tasty. I wished our waiter had attended to us better. He seemed like he had too many tables but the place wasn't terribly crowded. Overall , I would continue to eat there as I always do when visiting New York.

    Becco is my go-to place for my pasta fix. But, plenty of other things one the menu are great, too. My husband always orders chicken parm. and I drool over everyone's Rosso buco, and I wish I could eat everything, but I always go back for the pasta. The $35 dollar wine bottles are very good. What's not to love?

    We always go to Becco and when we are seeing a show on Broadway. Consistently good every single time. In the three pasta special is hard to resist. But even if you’re avoiding carbs, the place is fantastic.

    I am so disappointed to write a negative review of Lydia’s iconic restaurant, Becco. I had been looking forward to surprising my (Italian American) girlfriend with reservations. My serious complaint has nothing to do with back-of the-house. The food was stellar. 5 stars. The problem is front of the house operations. Tables were crammed together, service was rushed/unsophisticated, servers were surly…I was mortified. My girlfriend and I have loved Lydia’s show, own many of her cookbooks, and think highly of her “brand.” Please, please fix the setup and train your front of house staff. Save for the bartender, they ruined what should have been a wonderful experience. I cannot recommend this restaurant and will not be back. NYC has plenty of wonderful restaurants where food, presentation snd service are stellar. Sadly, Becco is not one of them. :-(

    Dined here once before and got the Simfonie de Pasta (sp?). Loved it so much, I got it again. All three were delicious, but the rigatoni bolonaise was next level. I also love that they put olives on the table with the bread. Will definitely go back.

    Food is good - Waiters/servers were nice but seemed rushed, I felt bad for them. Tables are packed, no one can move around or get up to go to the restroom easily. You get crammed in with all the other diners like sardines in a can. We had to ask for our drink several times. Once we were done with our meal, we were over it all and decided to not stay for dessert.

    Great experience. Awesome service. mussels very good, calamari cooked to perfection, could have used a bit more flavor to the breading, same with the chicken parm but the sauce and chicken was delicious. Swordfish devine. cheescake, panna cotta both great. Latte sublime. Will definitely return, and try the 3 pasta plate, looked great.

    Went to this restaurant first 5 years ago and when I came back to New York I had to visit the place again. One of my favourite restaurants of all time. The Sinfonia di Pasta is to die for. Very reasonably priced for what you get. The staff are always incredible and make every visit that bit better to make it an incredible experience overall. Thank you!
