We were early and they couldn’t have been nicer. Seated us right away…vaccine and ID checks. Food was excellent. Halibut special really good. They dropped Apple streudel from the dessert menu which was my fave, but we found something else. Prices were fair, especially for NYC. Waiter was friendly and knowledgable. We are going back next month!

Very enjoyable. Wines are a great value. Has the Sinfonia. Pretty straightforward -- has antipasto misto and the 3 pastas - one tomato-based, a second ravioli stuffed with mushrooms, a third linguini with clam sauce and classic in the shell. Tasty.

Becco is a good place to eat when your in the theather district. The food is good, the noise level could be loud, the service is usually good on occasion can wait a while to get drinks and food.

Recommended by friends and it didn’t disappoint- my only suggestion is maybe share an entree since the portions were really big but definitely get the calamari appetizer

Downhill. Terrible service, could not get drink refills or water. Requested pasta refills four times and never got any. Don't advertise unlimited pasta when you can't get it. Despite restaurant not being crowded they sat us on top of other parties. Asked to be moved, but would not accommodate request. Would not go bank again.

Becco is well known on Restaurant row in the Theater district in NYC. This was our second time there. We had the fried Calamari as an appetizer which came out hot and was tasty. The spicy marinara dipping sauce, also very good. The presentation was a bit boring. Just a pile of fried squid on a plate. Our entrees consisted of the Lemon Chicken, and Chicken Parmesan. The portions were generous and both dishes did come out hot and were delicious. The atmosphere was OK. We sat very close to the waiters station and that is never too pleasant. There were no linen napkins available when we were there. Instead we were given cocktail napkins. Was that a deal breaker? No, we would return in the future.

Great food, servers were friendly but too overwhelmed to give us the service we expected. I understand the restaurants is short staffed. I appreciate the workers. But maybe cut back on the amount of people you let in to restaurants. We had to wait for too long for drinks, water and then food.

Probably should have ordered an entree, ordered the salad and three pastas. Only liked one of the pastas. The waiter just did the bare minimum. No friendly conversation, nor did he share any of the specials, which I Probably would have liked better. I think Olive Garden is better sadly.
