We liked it. Was very busy so thats a good sign. The caesar was fine, the pork chops were delicious. Tuna and Short Ribs good. Pasta was fine. Great wine prices for NYC.

Becco never disappoints. You can't go wrong with any of their wines and every choice on the menu is expertly prepared. We were tightly placed inside but not uncomfortable. So glad to be able to come back and experience this great restaurant again!

Was good..but compared to the normal service levels it was just a bit off Sunday night. Overall it was fine, just not up to what we’ve been accustomed to over the years. Hoping it was just an off night.

It was good! I ordered the Salmon with Brussels Sprout. Also the $9 option for the pasta. The ravioli was the best pasta! We had Melissa as a server and she elevated the experience for us. We will most likely return because we enjoyed our whole experience so much.

My wife and I visited Becco based on a recommendation from a friend. We were not disappointed in the least. Their antipasti was a treat and even my wife sample some things that she would not have. The flavors and texture were unbelievable. Their pasta trio sampler was good way to try different pastas and sauce combination. Come hungry leave happy .

Disappointed .. first time ever that the food was not excellent .. the Short Ribs were fatty and tasteless , the Caesar’s salad was bland with no cheese and the pasta selection had just one decent pasta in the spinach ravioli .. very disappointing as I recommended returning here for a birthday celebration .. Lidia needs to check with the kitchen

We had a great meal at Becco. Food was all tasty & reasonably priced. The bottles of wine were also extremely affordable. The service was a bit slow / unwelcoming but we can appreciate that, like most other places, they are likely understaffed.

Found this place accidentally 3 years ago on a trip to NYC. It was amazing then and on this visit it was just as I remembered, OUTSTANDING. The food is fresh, very reasonably priced for New York, ambience is great and wine list is very reasonable. If you haven’t been you’re missing out.

We have been to Becco before and had amazing service and food and, unfortunately, that was not quite the experience we had on Saturday night. We were seated on a balcony and it seemed like we were forgotten about several times. The food was good but we were disappointed with the lack of attention. It is still a good location for pre-theater dinner, they just seemed a bit overwhelmed.

Excellent food and spectacular service but, the noise level is almost unbearable. Too many people in a small space. Honestly, we love the food but will hesitate going again, unacceptably loud.

Three pastas, breads and olives were authentic Italian. The Italian cheesecake was superb as we're the overfilled vannollis
Our meal completed a full day that included a Broadway show and a blocked street shopping event.

We've eaten at BECCO several times. It's our favorite meal experience that has a real Italian feel.

We have been going to Becco for about twenty years when we are in the city. . This will be my last time I visit. It used to be an enjoyable experience but last night the service was beyond poor. We sat down and it took about ten plus minutes before anyone came to table. When the waiter finally came he pointed to scan code on table and said the menu is on your phone. We actually like scanned menus. That wasn’t the problem. He was not pleasant at all. When he came back we had to ask him what the three pastas were for the pasta special. He didn’t mention any other specials. As we were eating we listened to him rattle an extensive lists of specials to the table of 10 behind us. We should not have had to ask for the specials. As a waiter he should have spent more than one minute telling us the menu was on our phones. It was bizarre. We have always had enjoyable wait staff at Becco. The pasta was sub par as well. We have always had at least one of the three pastas that we really loved. Last night was nothing special.

As always the 3 Pasta special is The BEST - the combinations tonight were Outstanding. And the service is THE BEST - from the smiles upon check-in to passing wait staff from other times in past dining, to the greeting at the table from the wait staff of the evening!!!!! Coming back from the pandemic, the service and support as gotten Better! So Noticeable = the Management is so Improved - warm, friending, sincere and accommodating! Make reservation for this popular restaurant.

Always happy when dining here. Staff are organized and always serve to get you out in time for your show. Everything was good, However, my veal Marsala was tough and knotty in spots, although the sauce was delicious. Once my teeth catch up in a knot, it’s over for me. Great wine selection.

We were seated inside in the bar area. It was quite noisy with the bar bottles and ice clanking but the food and service were great. I would dine there again but would request a table in the main dining room.

I have eaten there on several and always feel the food and service are great. This last visit left me thinking something was missing. Just not the best as it has been. I will just leave it as an off night in a very difficult time.
We will try again in the future.

Favorite restaurant in the city - the veal bolognese lasagna is an unmatched part of the pasta trio special. Every time I’m in the city I go here. My friend got the salmon and it was perfectly made and seasoned with mustard seeds, amazing. I hope everyone will find Becco and engage in the same experience as I have.
