Our server never came to our table. He just passed beside us because we were sitting on his way to another table that he never stop attending probably due to their high consumption in wines and the fact that they were 6 guest instead of 4 (us).

His name was Luis (can’t remember the last name). The manager had to take our order for drinks (bottle of wine), appetizers and main courses in one single opportunity.

Before that, we had to wait near 30 minutes without any attention after we were seated at our table.

At the end we were ready to order dessert and when we asked Luis for the menu while he was passing thru, he just kept walking away while shouting “please give me a second”.

Minutes later, we asked another employee for our check because the dessert menu didn’t arrived.

Later Luis came with the dessert menu and dropped it on our table while he was rushing to the other one near us. And when we tried to stop him to tell him that we had already asked for our check, he grabbed the menus back and walking away said “I thought you ordered the dessert menu”.

Minutes later Luis then again dropped the check on the table never to come back again. That’s when we left the second floor to pay at the register near the bar on the first one and other personnel noticed that we were forced to pay that way instead of dealing with the payment thru our “server”. That’s when the manager came to us to apologize and she knew that we were the guests that had to wait near half an hour to order. She was the one who took it.

I have to say that the manager was sincere and her apology was truly accepted by all of us.

Great food as always! Service was a little scattered. While they checked our vaccine cards upon entry - the tables were jammed together. I had strangers eating less than 1 foot either direction, and hoards of waiting diners hovering over me as well. Didn’t feel very safe. But again, food is always great! Maybe try going in off hours to avoid the crowds.

Confusing menu given the "family style" on some items and not on others, poor service (I ordered the wine, yet the waiter gave the taste upon opening to my brother- the only man at the table. Really??) and loud. Not sure what happened to this place but I hadn't been there in years. Now I will never return,

The food was awful. Horrible tastes that did not go well together. Our server was immediately bothered when we didn’t order alcohol. Practically shunned us the remainder of the night. We will not go back.

Attentive and friendly service, vibrant atmosphere, delicious food, and that the meal was paced perfectly made this a great dining experience all around. Secondi with the Sinfonia mid-course was excellent and a substantial and satisfying meal.

We enjoyed our dinner thoroughly. Wish we got 1 enter and then the pasta special and share that. There was a lot of leftovers that we couldn’t take with us to the hotel.

The service was impeccable. They were attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. The fresh pasta was amazing, especially the semolina gnocchi. Gelati was the perfect size to have something sweet after the delicious meal. I would highly recommend Becco to everyone.

Food was wonderful as always. Quality Italian food with large portions. A good and somewhat rare find in the theatre district. Highly recommend to other locals.

The music on the main floor was not very aligned with the food and ambiance. Playlist was like 80s/90s rock on shuffle. Consider something more Italian or softer.

We arrived and were taken to our table promptly. Everything was truly very fine. My only quibble is withe how crowded our party was. The tables are arranged too close together. I felt I was sitting at my neighbors’ tables!

Overall, the ambience was superb, as was the menu. Our waiter was a bit surly, although in general, the other staff members’ service was gracious & helpful. Another drawback was the fact that for the pasta special, only vegetarian & seafood options were available. A meat option should be added to the mix—very limited indeed.
