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 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.

Once again, Becco was spot on with service and food! Always reliable with taste, friendliness of staff, knowledgeable of staff with wines and pure courtesy! I also appreciated being asked for my COVID pass and ID. The Hostess took the few extra seconds to confirm my identity which I so appreciated (I'm also an RN). I'm not comfortable sitting "inside" just yet and the restaurant was packed so I'm hoping and trusting that, for now, everyone gets properly checked before entering the restaurant. We need the comfort of knowing this. Thank you Becco!

We went here for a birthday dinner before seeing a Broadway show. Excellent service, the waiter was very attentive. Food was served promptly and everything was delicious. I had the chicken parmigiana. We also ordered mozzarella and tomato as an appetizer. I will definitely go back here. It was a pleasant dining experience.

Becco is one of our favorite restaurants and it never disappoints. The food is consistently very good and the service is outstanding. They are known for their table side pasta specials, but the entrees are also delicious. In particular, the stuffed peppers, pork chops, hanger steak and short ribs are some of our favorites. Also not to be missed is the calamari for an appetizer. I would not hesitate to eat here. Be sure to bring your Id and proof of vaccination. They do check carefully, which I applaud as a fully vaccinated person.

Chose this restaurant because it was close to theater and chef/owner is well known. We were seated upstairs with families with very loud small children. wine was a very good value and we all had the pasta special which was a mistake. it was very bland! Cesar salad was decent but what Italian restaurant cant make that? we should have dined at Joe Allen… live & learn…
