By far the best Italian food I’ve had to date in NYC or anywhere I have eaten. The spinach tortellini was amazing and won’t let you down! The food portion was nice and overall an amazing experience. I took my boyfriend on a date for his birthday and enjoyed it very much!

I have worked across the street from restaurant for years. I'm so glad I decided to finally go in! I scheduled a work lunch there, which worked out perfectly. Great service, not loud and delicious food. I will be back today to have drinks with someone for work and back for many more lunches and dinners.

We took a party of 8 to the theater and were hoping to find a reasonably priced restaurant with good food. Becca di Bracco was good on all fronts. We were seated quickly, we did have a reservation which was made to morning of the show. Food was good and service was prompt. Bar looked lively and ambiance was energetic, but manageable. Would recommend for theater above 50th st.

From the point I walked in door I had these impressions: bar room smell immediately; super loud; took about 4-5 minutes to have server at table; asked for bread fettuccine too al dente & tomato sauce that needed much more flavor and heat-lukewarm. Combination of noise & food made this visit remarkable but not in a good way.

I think our problem was that we weren’t looking for a “dining experience”. We were tired and hungry and wanted Italian. It was close to our hotel, so we figured it was a good option. The waiter was clearly disappointed that we weren’t interested in wine or appetizers which translates to no 300 dollar bill and less tip. Apparently customers are not treated equally based on their individual desires. We really would’ve been better off with a more casual mom and pop place.

Visited New year Eve , hells kitchen location some experience may be askew.
The decor and dining area, while jam packed and a bit cramped(New years eve, 10:30pm likely had something to do with it) evokes a rustic, Tuscan dinning experience. The extraordinary loud electronic bass music matched more if a night club vibe rather than a relaxed sit-down dinner returaunt. Not a fan if places where the music is so loud that conversation cannot be had.

Wait staff was excellent and attentive and courteous.

The found the menu decent but swaying toward the high end . Dishes were decently portioned and flavor hit or miss. Sage butter tortellini was very nice and rich but the ink squid pasta with crab the sauce had a nice zing but the other components fell flat.

Wine list is quite extensive but also above expectation price wise.

Excellent service, excellent ambiance. Octopus appetizer was delicious. The squid ink pasta dish was supposed to have different varieties of seafood. Mine had just crab, the portion was small and the pasta was only ok.

Went on Christmas Day. Some items on menu not available which was disappointing. Check your bill as they added a liquor drink I didn’t order onto it at $28. Also added service charge and expected a tip. Food was ok but nothing special.

My boyfriend and I found this restaurant after comparing many other Italian restaurants around midtown and the Hell's Kitchen area...it was totally worth the 20 minute walk in the freezing cold. Delicious, authentic, affordable and chic. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful (as well as very a Italian). The spinach tortellini is to die for...and they have a very long list of awesome and reasonably-priced wines as well. The bar is also great if you just want to meet up with friends...great music too.

I've been eating at Bocca di Bacco for 5 years. The food is reliably good. The service is attentive and eager to please. I prefer the 54th/55th location over the 44th/45th, mostly because of the interior layout. Never been to the Chelsea location.

One criticism: As of about a year ago, they started playing loud club music which makes any conversation virtually impossible. And the choice of music is disappointingly unsophisticated for a tuscan italian style restaurant.

This was our first time at Bocca di Bacco, but it definitely won't be the last. We had a delicious Caesar salad for two and then entrees out of this world. Prime rib was precisely cooked to medium rare as ordered, and the lamb ragu orichetta was delightful. With prosecco and dessert, an enchanting and delicious meal. Warm and friendly staff made everything even better. A real New York City dinner find for us.
