If you're headed out of a matinee or having an early dinner before a show, this is the place. Large groups welcome with reservations. Great red sauce offerings, good wine... stop looking — this is it.

We went for thanksgiving- we had no idea it was only price fix- nothing on there site or open table indicated that - and sadly the food was just poor and that has never happened to us there ! We have been there dozens of times :(
They really had such limited staff - it took 40 min just for our drinks . We hope they can get back to there old self and give quality food and serve once again

First time eating out for thanksgiving. We are visiting family. This restaurant was outstanding on all levels. The service was impeccable and friendly and accommodating, we had grandsons 6 and 9. Picky eaters and they loved it. The food was beyond delicious!!. Our entire family was happy. Also the prefix price was reasonable compared to other places that we considered. This restaurant should get 5 stars!!!

I had no idea that when I made a reservation for becco that I would be forced into a thanksgiving price fixe if a thanksgiving meal. I purposely made a reservation for Italian because I did not want a traditional thanksgiving. It should have been mentioned on the website when I made the reservation. It was expensive for what we got @ $75 a person. We had three kids who would barely eat the food so they charged us half price thankfully. The service was good up until my husband went to pay and the waiter accidentally took our card and left the restaurant. My husband had handed it to him to pay and then he had an emergency and had to leave and forgot about the card. So we had to wait for him to return with our card. Although it was not what I hoped for, the meal was fine.

Always a nice experience here. The Caesar salad comes with your entree and for an extra $9 you can add an all-you-can-eat trio of various pasta dishes being served that day to your main entree. They did forget to bring our appetizer but we had so much food, we never missed it.

Veal parm outstanding. Caesar salad outstanding. Halibut special outstanding. Have had the 3 pastas before and they are good if that's what you want. Missed the apple streudel which used to be on the menu and was really great. It's a solid bet for really good food in the theater district and they honor reservations. A well oiled machine.

Just needed to travel 😋. One of the best meal value experiences in NYC for dining . They have bottles of great wines on the last page for $35. I enjoyed the selection of 3 pastas and Caesar salad. One of the best meals I’ve ever had. The zuppe de peche miso, had fresh scallops, halibut, shrimp, and salmon in a lobster reduction sauce. Generous portions, do we need to say more 😋💥. The service and staff were fabulous.

The was one of the worst dining experiences I’ve ever had. The food is quality was below par, the service was terrible. We ordered the pasta special and they forgot to bring our salad and vegetables. The three pastas all served on one plate couldn’t be more poorly coordinated and flavours that didn’t go together at all. It feels like a cheap dining hall experience. When the salad finally arrived it too tasted like a tasteless salad. The bottle of wine was great. The indoor space felt like a sauna and with Covid it felt like one big one unhealthy environment. Wish I could write a better write up but sadly disappointed.

Great pre-theater dining option. Pasta special is a good deal, as are the $35 wines. Pasta is delicious and unlimited. Short ribs were delicious. Waiter accommodated our theater schedule. Also, entrees come with Caesar salad, which is unusual for NYC. Restaurant was packed and had a good buzz, which felt great post-pandemic. They were thorough about checking ID and proof of vaccination so it felt ok to us to be in a crowded restaurant.
