The pasta deal is perfect. One was not to my liking; they happily skipped it. The tube pasta with beef Ravi was to die for.

We loved the food, service and festive family atmosphere at Becco last Wednesday evening. Especially with the specter of Covid19 virus around, staff and food was spectacular and helped us feel at home. A wonderful memorable evening!

Shared pasta symphony and two appetizers with my friend. Bresaola was tasty. Gamberini was so-so. Antipasto misto had a good mix and dressing was tasty. Spaghetti was boring. The orrechiette was better but not by much. The gnocchi filling was buttery, best of the symphony. Cheesecake was yummy.

The server was difficult to understand and breezed through the many specials. Should hand out in menu. I liked that he made sure we were on time for our show.

We were going to dinner before show and Becco was recommended. Started off with a waiter who was not very friendly (Allen) and when we asked for wine recommandations, he simply walked off. Then we asked him again, and he brought us a bottle. Then as he described the specials, he mentioned the Fish special would be served with shaved truffles. Then when he can back to take our order, we asked him to clarify that the fish would come with the truffles. He said yes. Then the fish arrived with no truffles and he said it was for another special. We sent meal back as the fish was very bland. The other meals ordered could have used better seasonings but were ok. Very disappointing experience.

We were at Becco for lunch a few years ago and it was hopping! Yesterday at noon probably less that half the tables were occupied. Coronovirus-mania? I suspect! But, like last time the food was excellent, waiter was very knowledgeable and support staff did their jobs well. Top Notch!

Food and waiter were excellent, table of men behind us were very loud and using cruse words, was a bit annoying. No one asked them to quiet down.
other than that, it was a great time and will come again
We told other people on our tour bus to eat at Becco, they enjoyed it and thanked us for recommending it

Location is great for dining before or after a show on Broadway. Had the hanger steak with roasted vegetables. Delicious. Shared a traditional Italian dessert Zabaglione di Sangu di Giuda with fresh berries. It was fabulous! Not too sweet with the fresh berries. Our guests had sword fish and pasta dishes which they enjoyed along with Chocolate mousse cake. They seemed very pleased. We were upstairs and it was very busy. A bit loud but we could converse. Will definitely go back.

Becco is always a wonderful experience and I don’t want to take away from that standard experience. The exception is this past Sunday I went before the theatre and there was obviously a party taking place that evening. They were setting up for this gathering while we were still eating our dinner which gave the patrons in this room the feeling they were being rushed. Again I eat at Becco often and always have a wonderful experience this was an anomaly for me.

I love Becco and usually the service is exceptional but not today. It was very disappointing. I must have asked for more water 4 or 5 times & my girl friend must have asked for a straw 6 times. Neither is so difficult. We also waited a long time to get our special the pasta’s. I think it’s time to take a break from Becco and try some new restaurants . I Probably will be back but not for a while

Seemed like it turned in to a food factory. Although very busy, it was never feed them and get them out.Three people got the pasta courses and the person serving it slopped it all three on the plate. All the flavors meshed in to each other - looked like a hot mess. Usually they would have people come by and offer you tastes and then follow up.

Late night dinner just wanted to share a light meal and we were forced to order more food then we wanted. Just wanted a side of pasta -which we thought we were getting and rather then 9$ it was 25$. When it was being served it was less then one spoon full. Waiter knew we didn’t want much and where sharing when the bill came he said there isn’t sharing. Really?????

We had a pre-show dinner at Becco, which I had selected based on online reviews. It was a great experience in every way — wonderful food; a friendly, attentive, knowledgeable server; and a warm, festive ambience. We’re certain to return on our next trip to NYC.

We had theater tickets and were pressed for time. We both ordered the pasta special which was delicious and provided the opportunity to try three different pastas. Becco has an extensive wine list and we picked a min excellent Chianti. Service matched our needs and was courteous.
