The Food was absolutely fantastic and service was amazing.

We were celebrating our anniversary and asked for a table away from the kitchen. They must have thought we meant “in the kitchen” since we were seated right outside the doorway—the closest table to the kitchen! The foot traffic from wait staff breezing by and the clanking of dishes and staff running up and down the kitchen stairs made it hard to even have conversation, which is why we asked to be seated away from the kitchen to begin with. Food was good but felt the pasta trio was not very interesting—gnocchi had a bizarre texture and spaghetti with marinara and basil was nothing special. Calamari was good. Wait staff is rushed because of the constant running around re-filling the pasta trio plates. Our waiter was very anxious to be done with us and seemed annoyed when we asked what the specials were. He asked if we were ready to order before even telling us about them, obviously hoping to save himself the speech.

I’ve been wanting to go to Becco for a while now and I should’ve just left it in my “list” and not ruin the restaurant and food that was in my head based on Joe Bastianich’s reputation and that of his family! My husband and I were saying that if Joe was there, even he wouldn’t eat the food and he’d spit it out like he does on TV!!
The Cesar Salad was tasteless and the lettuce was soggy and watery. The pasta trio was over cooked and not drained well, again, watery and not seasoned. Very underwhelming. I’d rather go to Carmine’s or Tony Napoli or....wait for it....OLIVE GARDEN!
Do NOT waste your time and money for this resto unless you like bland and tasteless food. You’re in NYC, and there’s thousands of other places to wow you and this was just so underwhelming it was sad. I don’t know why the resto was full besides the fact that for 24.95 to get an appetizer and a pasta plate in a resto and not a pizzeria in the Theater District is near impossible unless you want a burger and fries.
I’ve been to the dollar pizza dives in NYC and eaten street meat and loved it and have been to every Steakhouse in the city and every Michelin Star resto in the city and other places in the city such as Felicia or Del Posto all the way to Le Bernardin and this place was soooo not worth an everyday meal. I have a very good palette. Low end to high end. This. Was. A. Waste.
The service was diner quality and that didn’t help either plus there was very ambiance. What a disappointment that I chose this place since I only get a night out alone with the hubby like once every 6 months or so. We go out for dinner about once every 1-2 months now with friends or colleagues but just me and rare. What a waste of a perfectly good evening.

Very disappointing, the calamari was chewy, the crispy shrimp, pasty and the salad as limp as it could be. The entrees were fine but nothing to rave about. They took the apps off the check, we didn’t ask them to but we couldn’t eat them. The staff was nice but No reason to return.

The trio pasta should be serve separately, the pasta was not on the desired temperature. Penne passed cooking point.

Food was pretty good. Enjoyed the $31 wine list. There are several selections for that. Server left halfway through our dinner and the one who remained did not fully engage or give the best service at that point. It was also very hot in there as the temperature outside had warmed up and maybe the inside still had the heater on. Overall I would return to this restaurant. Seating is better for couples or small groups.

A LOVELY evening with good food and good service by a friendly waiter. Staff very accomadating from surprising us with a dessert complete with a candle for my friends birthday..... to turning down the cold air which was blowing from overhead. I have been at Becos a few times and have always enjoyed it. Highly recommended.

Becco is always a “must” when we visit NYC. We are NEVER disappointed. We always order the three-pasta offering and it’s always delicious and always different. We’ve never had a better Mushroom Risotto.

Overall ambiance and food was good!
Had a reservation for february 12 6:30 pm for my wife’s birthday. We went for the pasta trio which I expected to be better but order some other food and it was good. Service unfortunately was not OK! This only coming from the waiter attending us that nigt. He was not very willing to provide detail about menu and after making an observation about a soup which was quite bland he did not take it well and went back to his supervisor saying that we were rude an unfortunate comment that I had to hear on myway to the restroom. After hearing that I just wanted to immediately walk out from there. I would not go back and honestly not sure if I would recommend it. We just had a really bad experience with the waiter.

Good food reasonably priced. Ambiance is fine but nothing to write home about. The Pasta tasing was good but not exceptional. Would go again for every day dining but go to Del Posto Lidia’s other restaurant for special events
