Excellent food. Service was fair ...especially for a Wednesday night at 615. Would go again. Good value.
We were visiting from out of town. Staff quickly accommodated a switch from 4 to 5 diners despite a Sunday night crowd, and didn’t hassle us for a long stay during which we over-ate all the delicious food.
Lunch food was just as good as our dinner. Major difference was that lunch was much of a relaxed dining experience. The noise level was such that it was easy to carry on a normal conversation with very little background noise. Will definitely book again!
We had the lunch special which is a great value. The salad/roasted veggies, cheese etc. was delicious. The pasta with veal bolognese sauce was not very good, it had so much water that it ruined the sauce on the other two pasta's on my plate.
I love Becco! The menu is amazing! I have had the pasta tastings(a great value) as well as the swordfish(a favorite), chicken parm(massive portions) and my new fav lemon chicken and spinach. You can’t go wrong here!! Wine list is awesome and desserts and appies can easily be shared by two.
I’ve been to Becco multiple times & I’ve loved it every time. The staff does an amazing job. Keep up the great work Becco!! I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone!
I had looked forward to dining here and was so disappointed by the experience. As we were trying to check out coats, someone from the restaurant was yelling out that the outside door needed to be closed. We had a hurried exchange with the hostess checking us in for our reservation. She told us our table was not ready, and asked us to move into the bar to wait. The bar was a very crowded, standing room only where you had to dodge people trying to get past you. Once seated, our waitress seemed totally distracted by progress at the table behind us. I wanted the mushroom ravioli but it was only available with a trio of pastas. And after all of this, we all felt the food was mediocre at best. I will not be returning to Becco, but I don’t think they will miss me. I believe quantity is their goal and not quality.
This was my 3rd time going to Becco and i have to say i was a little disappointed this time out. Drinks were good , waiting was very good and service was excellent. Pasta was cooked al dente which works but this time out the taste was off. veal was very good. Pasta was just off. One was a little salty spaghetti, the bolonese was strange tasting did not taste like bolonese. Could just be it was a Sat night.
Had a great meal, great variety of pastas and great value - was disappointed in the amount of time it took for someone to greet us and provide us water. But once we got started, it was great.
Great! Pasta special always our fave!
My husband’s veal was amazing but my seafood dish was mediocre; the seafood was cooked and seasoned nicely, but the polenta was more like grits made with water & very bland. Very crowded and noisy. Looking around at other tables, the primi dishes looked amazing and will take that route when we visit again. Everyone was very friendly, however, and we would go back again. The menu was refreshing with dishes that you don’t see everywhere, but it still felt traditional.
Everything is always delicious! We always leave full and still have money in our wallets! The muscles appetizer was amazing Ana the meats were the biggest we have ever seen! The three pastas were all fantastic. I had the seafood over polenta and my boyfriend had the veal chop. We left nothing on our plates!! We will always come back to Becco!!
I've dined here before and wanted to celebrate a special occassion -- my sisters' Birthdays. The tables were crammed against each other -- I refused the first table offered us. Salad was very good, entre OK (OK I can get from a diner), two pasta sides were good (tomatoe sauce for spaghetti was watery), dessert very very disappointing (got better at my local diner). Overpriced for what we got. Won't recommend. Has the spirit of Lydia left the room!!!!
Not my first visit to Becco. I love the food. it is always delicious and beautifully plated. Their wine list I affordable, and the wine choices are excellent.
Have dined at Becco many times. Always a pleasure. The all you can eat 3-Pasta option is an excellent choice. I enjoyed two of them; the hub enjoyed all 3. The Caesar salad was a little wilted and the croutons much too big. Our server was excellent. The one thing that bothered me was the lady who was going around with the pan of pastas. (I think yesterday she had the Rigatoni Bolognese) Beside looking very bored, when she gave the second helpings of pasta she touched your plate with the fork/spoon utensil. Was she touching everyone's plate?????????????? Hmmm, not a good thought. We would definitely return to Becco, just hope she is not there. And Becco should look into this practice.
I would it eat here again, nor would I recommend it to my friends.
Food was excellent as always. Wine value was excellent for New York City. Noise level was fairly loud as it was difficult to carry on conversations with a full restaurant and the fairly tight tables. Will book again but the lunch was a much more relaxed atmosphere.
Love Becco so much that every time we think about trying a new place when we come to the city...
we always come back to Becco!
I ate at Becco back in December and enjoyed it very much. My last visit not so much. Went there after a show and asked to be seated earlier than our reservation and they did accommodate us. However the table they sat us at happened be be in a section where the floor was not level. Two of us had chairs that were rocking all over the place. At first I thought it was the chair and asked it to be changed but the next one did the same thing . My friend’s chair was doing the same thing as well. You may want to either level the floor in that section or don’t seat people there cause it’s not fun bouncing all over during your whole meal. Two of my friends got the pasta special one has a bad allergy to shrimp but they said it was no problem to do the dish without shrimp. My friend that had the pasta with the shrimp for dinner her dinner came prompltly as did my chicken Parm. My other friend who had no shrimp just sat there with no dinner. I brought it to the attention of our server and she said it would be right out. Not! We waited and waited finally he came around with the ravioli portion of the pasta special with three left in the pan he gave two to the friend that had the shrimp dish and one to the other person who had the pasta with no shrimp which at that point were a quarter way through the dinner and my friend had one ravioli . The inexperienced waitress poured water in the wine glass that still had wine in it. It was just real bad. Sorry I won’t be back for awhile if ever. Oh and you may want to rethink those bathrooms. Not fun when your sitting on the throne and the hand dryer keeps going off. Maybe if you would open the place up a bit instead of packing people in like sardines it would be a nicer experience for all. Sorry but it was bad!
Great food. Would have preferred our table not be in a corner (reserved on first available date, 1 month prior). In a dark corner, next to a loud foursome, with piercing laughs. Waiter was a bit less attentive than could have been.
The food was amazing! Seth our waiter was truly one of the beat waiters I have ever come in contact with!
The Food was absolutely fantastic and service was amazing.
Christmas present to the opera and dinner
The previous reviews were spot on. Just so so, OK for the theater district but if your a fan of Lidia's it will be less than what you expect. Excessively crowded as in over booked. Our wait staff was changed mid-stream which meant our appitizer was forgotten about. The hostess was apologetic and corrected this witha complimentary replacement. The pasta trio was bland and they never offered my hsband seconds. My Chicken parm was ok but came with only the soggy ceasar salad. The coffee was good!
Absolutely delicious and Seth our waiter was wonderful, as was the entire Becco staff! Great ambiance was the perfect pairing to this fabulous food experience! Thank you!
We come here every time we vacation in New York City. I come from Canada and my group of friends just love it there. Great food, great service.
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.
Excellent food, great service and nice ambience. And a really attractive restaurant.
Courteous service and very good food
