The waiter was very attentive to a gluten and dairy allergy that one member of our party has. He was offering suggestions and substitutions. We were not in any hurry to get to a show or anything and the pace of the meal was perfect. The food was very good.

Becco’s is one of my most favorite restaurants in Manhattan. The service and the food are par none to any restaurant experience! My only disappointment was they took the most incredible liver and onions off the menu. It was some of the best liver and onions I’ve ever had!

The dinnerI had last night, Sept. 18, 2021, was exceptional. It was a yellow fin tuna cooked medium rare over a bed of greens and heirloom tomatoes!! Delicious!

I am never disappointed when I eat at Becco’s! I go eat there every time I’m in the city!

The food was amazing and the waiter was very informed. The chicken parmigiana was enough for 2 people and was delicious. We will be going back again.

My fiancé and I were visiting for the weekend. I love Lidia Bastianich and had to visit one of her restaurants. The wine was delicious, the pasta, the cannoli for desert - even the Caesar salad! Great choice. Service was great.

Fresh and fantastic food, everything was right off the boat or made from scratch. I enjoyed the pasta trio and my wife had a beautiful branzino that she said was one of the best she’s ever had. The kids had spaghetti and both chimed that it was the best they’ve ever had and that this restaurant “should be called the best spaghetti place.”

I wish the beer selection was a little more broad but they did have nice wines and other mixed cocktails to choose from. My only issue was that it was pretty noisy at the bar area which was distracting. Felt like all of the noise being generated could have been done prior to opening.

Very nice experience for our group of 8, with attentive and accurate service. All entrees arrived correctly and at the same time, the advice was good, and everyone found the food delicious. The $35 wine list provides fun for oenophiles to experiment (2 hits, one miss, but it's individual taste). A great place for a group.

Was very delicious food. Well worth every penny. Really enjoyed everything from drinks to appetizers to our meal. I usually never eat a Caesar salad but this was the best I’ve ever tasted to actually enjoy it.

We ate outside - the weather was beautiful but this is why I rated the noise level to be high. Not sure what the inside level is. The food was absolutely delicious! We ate here before the last Springsteen on Broadway show and it was perfect!

Dirty wine glass on table when we sat down. Told waiter who said it was probably our hand sanitizer. This was inside the inverted glass on the table. We almost left because of his attitude. I’m sure he overheard me say something about his attitude (I was intentionally loud) because he was suddenly peaches and cream and the owner was by to greet us very shortly after. NY attitude doesn’t fly with me while you’re on my dime. Should have gone to Lattanzi right next door. Their head waiter/matre de was working the room and everyone was having fun (we were eating outside so we could watch him. Sorry, wouldn’t recommend you visit.

We went at 4 PM on a Sunday for late lunch early dinner and it was wonderful!
Ossobucco and veal chop were cooked to perfection. We also added the pasta course…Everyone should put this restaurant on their list of places to go.

The first time I went was fantastic. The second time, service wasn’t great. Our waiter didn’t introduce himself, didn’t bring us menus and didn’t wait on our table at all. We had to waive him down every time we needed something.

Have been coming to Becco for years, and it never disappoints. From the caesar salad and pasta and occo busco through the dessert, everything was delicious! Service was great...we were not rushed at all. Thank you Becco and staff!

Lovely ambience and service. Mezze portions are tiny but shareable amongst 2-3 people so we ended up ordering quite a few from the menu. They have round tables good for groups of 6 and up. Our server was very funny and made good wine and mains suggestions

Didn’t like the fact they charged $3.50 for a refill of Diet Coke and didn’t tell us about it. Saw $21 charge for 2 diet Coke’s and 2 refills for each which was not very nice. Wished they would have told us. Also the cups they serve sodas are really small filled mostly with ice!
