    Waited 1 hour with a reservation. They skipped us by mistake. Out of meatball in an Italian restaurant. Drinks finally came after appetizers were eaten. Forgot my daughters entree. Everything was slow and confusing. Truly poor experience.

    Such a great place. Love the choice of the pasta dishes, allowing us to try three different pastas, and for those with appetite, have a second helping!! Chicken Parmesan was the best my husband ever had - been coming for over 20 years - mille grazie

    The lamb porterhouse was the best that I have ever had. My wife’s swordfish was excellent as well. The service was great. The $35 wine list is extensive with a wide selection of high quality wines. Thank you for a wonderful evening…

    I was a little disappointed with the sinfonia de paste. I only really liked one of the three options, which was the ravioli, which was delicious. The spaghetti with scallops was not good and the farfalle with marinara was alright. The antipasto to start was not at all what I thought and was alright. The bread and breadsticks were good and the so were the drinks. My friends had the chicken parm and the mozzarella in carrozza which were both good. I’ve had batter Italian food in NYC.

    It was very busy, pre theater time. We arrived 5 mins late so we were in a rush. We were seated right away and appitizers came fast. Drinks took a while and we had to wait for plates for the trio pasta dishes. But once received both were delicious!

    I am longtime fan and customer of Becco ... pasta is a funny thing, I think it can fluctuate even with the relative humidity! That said, I think the bar got lowered a notch on my most recent visit ... (12/1/22) could it be because I was there during "rush hour" (7pm). Who knows ... anyway, the service remains, despite the crush of people, efficient and personable. A stellar staff!

    Very disappointing evening. I had the special veal dish. Veal was tough and flavor was just ok. My friend had the chicken risotto. Risotto was good but the chicken was not very flavorful and it was too salty. A large table of dinners was seated behind us and after they left the rather large round table top was removed and rolled right down the middle of the dining room. Our table was in the center of the room and waiters and servers kept bumping into the back of the chairs. Overall not a good value and I will not return. It felt like a very expensive fast food restaurant.

    We ordered the pastas last night and they were all wonderful. The Caesar salad is always a winner. We accompanied our meal with a Bastianich wine from Toscana. The wine list of reasonably priced wines is extensive. Finally,we capped off dinner with a PannaCotta which my wife always gets here at Becco and which she says Is the best she has had anywhere. The cappacino was also full bodied and a wonderful way to end the evening.

    We were truly looking forward to our dinner as my husband has been following Lidia for years. We arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation and were asked to wait in bar area. No problem. We thought we would enjoy a drink while we waited. No one was at the bar. Several others were in bar area making it quite crowded. We were taken to our table. The tables are less than 12” apart. Table had to be moved out to allow person by wall to get in. Server asked if we were going to a show and we said we were not. Thinking this would mean they would not rush us. We understood that we had 90 minutes for dinner. Again no problem. We ordered appetizers and dinner. Food was brought out so quickly we felt rushed to finish previous course. Tables are so tiny plates hardly fit. I will say the food was good. Not exceptional. Overall we felt cramped and rushed and were very disillusioned with our experience. We were in and out in 50 minutes. It felt like Drive thru. Unfortunately we would not recommend nor return. Such a shame as we had booked well in advance and had truly looked forward to our dinner.

    Nice dinner, incredible bargain. We each had a seafood entree, which came with a large salad. The sea bass special was really tasty. Branzino was excellent but not as warm as I would have liked. Service was fast and efficient. Tables for two were very close together but we enjoyed talking to other diners over dinner. We were too stuffed for dessert.
