The food is consistently wonderful (so far, the best branzino I've had in the city -- perfectly prepared!) And the cocktails are very well-made. The pastas always get high marks from us as well. I really wish one area of this restaurant (there are three) was carpeted, because it gets very LOUD and can be difficult to hear dinner companions. Other than that, it's a wonderful place!

Was very happy when Becco reopened. This is a sure bet when visiting NYC. The Sinfonia di Paste is the best Theater District bargain. $30 get you unlimited choice of 3 pastas brought to the table plus an excellent antipasto misto. Very good $35 bottles of Italian wines. Portions are ample and well prepared. A couple can eat very well and split a bottle of wine for about $100.

The restaurant offers a gourmet Italian menu. The food is exquisite. The individual steak dishes are incredibly delicious. We dined on a Pasta sampler, The exquisite Salmon, and the Short ribs which melted as soon as I tasted them. The table service is excellent. The atmosphere is wonderful. This was the perfect dining experience for celebrating any occasion.

Thank you.

Becco is always reliably good. After 20 years as a regular I never miss the opportunity to spread the word and I’m so thankful that they survived the pandemic.

As always s great dinner / experience- delicious pastas; wonderful service; and great hosts - management (that come around to check which is very special - of course the serving staff does it as well but seldom do the management hosts). They have outdoor and spacious indoor dining.

We went to Becco for a book signing with Lidia Bastianich, the owner and noted chef. As usual, the food and service were outstanding. I had been used to Becco being very crowded and noisy with a pre-theater crowd, but the changes wrought by Covid have converted the seating areas into more spacious (and therefore more quiet) surroundings. I recommend the three-pasta special, but I would recommend anything on the menu. It's extraordinarily good Italian and Italian-inspired food. You should go and bring your friends. Then buy one of her cookbooks too.

We absolutely loved it. Food was perfect. They kept us happy. Just don’t drink that pineapple soaked in moonshine like stuff. It was called grapa. Gross! 😂 (to be fair we were warned!) but seriously we’ll be back. Loved everything.

I love this place! Hadn't been for a year due to covid and it was soooooo nice to be back. Delicious as always. It was kind of nice to have space between tables and to go there just for a nice Saturday night out (rather than pre-theater when we are always rushing). Loved the pasta and the wine. Our server was very attentive and helpful too. Overall 5 stars!!!

The 3 all you can eat pasta special is The BEST! Love the $35 wine list. It is the quality food, setting and wonderful service that makes it Extra special. I am be coming from the very beginning (even before they had the liquor permit). It never disappoints. But this year has been The absolute Best. The sincere friendliness of the management has never been of such a high standard. This is a popular place so please make reservations. They never RUSH you with is so Important, especially in the theatre district. The highest recommendation.

The three pasta dinner was underwelming. Diners expect something special not run of the mill pasta with red sauce. The appetizer with pupo featured a small piece of cold dried out fried skate, not good. The menu was somewhat limited and offered no shrimp entrees. Service was good, friendly staff but somewhat slow food delivery.
