Becco Ratings and Reviews
Spectacular food, extensive wine list, very attentive service. The trio of three pasta dishes, which vary by the day, are to die for. They arrive piping hot to the table, and you can have an unlimited amount of each of the three. Plus, the restaurant, which is beautiful inside, is in close proximity to the theater district. I love Becco!!
Best fried Calamari I ever tasted! Delicious fresh and hot. Tables close together but acoustics upstairs must be great because you didn’t hear a lot of noise or nearby conversations. Good place for pre theatre meals because service very quick. Almost too quick for diners not going to theatre. They asked us before meal if we were going to a show so they knew we could relax a bit but everything thing came out quickly
The noise level was disturbing. We asked for a quiet location and was told no even though tables were available in other rooms . If you don't care that you cannot have a conversation over dinner, this place might suit your needs. Food was good. Could not hear the server despite asking to repeat the specials. Next time in NY we will try another place.
Good meal with an indifferent waiter. Bit of a wait for the guy to get to the table and that set the tone for the rest of the meal. The guy didn't care. He rolled his eyes when we asked about anchovies for our salad. An expediter brought them when asked. We we're never asked if we liked our meal. The manager at least asked but the waiter couldn't be bothered to. Isn't that part of the job?
The veal chop for two was great.
Bad service can ruin a great meal but thanks again to the manager for making this a good experience.
There are a lot of comments on here about bad service. Something is obviously wrong.
This is our second time at Becco and it didn't live up to what we recall from our first visit. The restaurant is very loud and very tight. You'll be making friends with your neighbors for sure. The food was decent, but not worth the cost. Yes it is NYC, but we found other meals that tasted better and were cheaper.
Our biggest complaint is the pasta trio was bland. They serve you so much the first time around that you'll never get to the "unlimited" portions.
Great as always. We've been here a few times and this visit was just as pleasant as those in the past. We started off with a Montepulciano ($29; all the wines are $29), had a salad and an entree' for lunch. My wife came for the Lasagna Bolognese (with Bechamel; practically no one makes this) and she loved it. I chose the featured chicken livers. They were perfect. It's nearby the theater district, so if you show up before or after a show it can be pretty noisy. We lucked out because the whole crowd left as soon as got our wine. Can't say enough nice things about this place; honestly.
My friend and I arrived for lunch , 11:45 AM. After waiting quite awhile for the waiter (it was early, 11:45 AM and not yet crowded) , I ordered a glass of Prosecco and the Paillard and my friend ordered the Lasagne alla Bolognese. The food was served in a timely fashion and was nice and hot. My Paillard was wonderful but my friend did not care for the lasagna; he is used to traditional Lasagne with a red sauce, layers of pasta and ricotta/mozzarella cheese. He took one bite and was done. Our waiter NEVER came over to see how we were doing or ask if everything was OK. When I was down to my last bite, he finally came over and asked how everything was and then looked at my friend's plate and asked what was the matter. He asked my friend if there was anything wrong with the lasagna and my friend stated he didn't really care for it. The waiter acted like he couldn't believe someone wouldn't like the food ! He asked my friend if he wanted to see a menu and my friend responded, "no thank you." (The main reason was, I was now finished). We then had the manager (I assume) come over and state he was sorry my friend didn't enjoy the lasagna. We then had to wait again for the waiter who finally came over with dessert menus. We then waited, for what seemed too long, for the waiter to finally bring us the check and then waited again for him to pick up the check. He didn't say anything to us and seemed quite dismissive. He should have said something like, "I'm so sorry you didn't care for the lasagna. I hope you'll come back and give us another try". He truly acted like we were not worthy of even being there. My friend did say something to the hostess on the way out. She offered him the manger's card with his number. He didn't take the card because he said he would never come back. I did enjoy the bread, breadsticks and the Paillard but the waiter truly made me feel I wasn't as important as the next table since they ordered appetizers and a bottle of wine.
My son lives in New York and I was visiting for a conference and to see him. I wanted something "New York" and not the tourist experience. Our reservation was honored and we were seated within the expected time frame. The seating was a little crowded, but its New York and it added to the Ambiance and feel of a true Italian restaurant. The menu is diverse and offers a number of options no matter your need for diet without sacrificing taste. The only negative was ordering my meal a medium rare which came as rare but the server quickly noticed and corrected the temperature of the meal. The highlight was the Pasta addition to our Entrees, which was phenomenal! I would recommend this a great place to catch up or get caught up in the New York dining experience. We will come back.
My wife and I returned to Becco for the first time in a few years. We visit New York on a regular basis but simply had not made the opportunity to visit Becco for too long. We were not disappointed! Each of us chose the "Pasta Symphony", which on this evening featured a mushroom ravioli, linguini with clams, and a pasta with marinara sauce. All were delicious! The two of us shared a Caesar salad and the mixed vegetable appetizer, and both of those were great. This food, coupled with a bottle of wine from the "Every bottle is $29 list", made for a terrific bargain. We will return!
Server was amazing. Asked if we were on our way to Broadway show, made sure that courses were served promptly and that we were on time for play. Server made excellent recommendations regarding chicken and pasta dishes. Much of the food prepared from scratch. Excellent pre-theatre dining at very reasonable prices.
Remains one of my favorite restaurants ever - I've been coming here whenever I get to NYC for about 20 years since I first discovered it during a business event. It never fails to delight - the pasta special is just wonderful and the service is efficient and friendly. Great for pre-show but best is going a bit later - a little less crowded and more relaxed.
