Group of six for lunch. Taking our grand daughter who lives in NY out for her birthday. The group ordered the three course pasta which was all you could eat;some ordered salad and some ordered antipasta. We received a little basket of break which was also insufficient. Our drink order was taken and served in a timely manner. When the food arrived the salad and antipasta were served to all family style; both were insufficient for six people and we were served our pasta and never asked if we wanted more salad , antiipasta or bread. The pasta was so-so and nothing special. I ordered a second drink; asked for it about four times and never received it. It was included in the bill. Basically went to this restaurant because of watching Lidia; would never return.

I didn't have expectations for this restaurant since it's in Times Square and having eaten in the area more times than I'd like to remember I wasn't excited to go back again. Well I'm happy to report that there's a place in Times Square where you can actually get good food. My friend tried the unlimited pasta and each dish she had was delicious. I want to go back just to try that out too. I had the chicken and it was so moist and seasoned just right. We polished off a bottle of really good, nicely priced white wine (can't remember what it is and how much since it was 5 months ago when we ate there) and had scrumptious dessert. I'd definitely go back again!

My husband and I dined at Becco while in New York recently. The food was terrific; service good and atmosphere lively. The ossobucco was tremendous; we also loved the $25 bottle wine selection. Nice menu choices. We would definitely recommend if you're in town for a show.

I took my bf here for dinner Saturday night and we were both dissapointed! He had Ossobucco and i had the Veal Shop...they were both bland... barely had any seasoning!! at all. I must say the best part of my meal (i had Veal Chop) was the mash potatoes. on a good note, we needed to get the nasty bland flaovors from our palate and ordered the desert sampler. The pannacotta and itialian chessecake were amazing--but not good enough for me to return.

My husband and I absolutely loved our anniversary dinner at Becco. The place was certainly packed to the gills and the tables were a bit "cozy" but we enjoyed talking to our gracious neighbors. Service was more than adequate and our waiter chose a great wine (all bottles are $25!) to go with our meal. The food was definitely the shining star of our dining experience. From the quality breads and Cesar salad to the calf liver sauteed in onions and panceta with crispy polenta on the side to the final bite of canolli, my meal was a masterpiece of flavors and textures. Truly, I had never had a better cannoli!! Can't wait to go back. P.S. Word of advice....skip the pasta trio and splurge a little on the entrees, you won't be disappointed.

We were very disappointed. The bistecca was juicy and tasty, but so fatty that half had to be left on the plate. The Pasta Trio was hardly worth praise. It included mushroom ravioli that was undercooked, as well as rigatoni and pomodoro, and a rabbit ragu that were fine. Nothing I could not find easily in my own kitchen and certainly not memorable. It seems the restaurant must be cutting costs. I remember enjoying my meal here about 5 years ago.

Love Becco! I will admit we I try to go whenever I am in the city. I had a friend with me this time who ordered the lasagna, which I have to admit I am not a fan of - it has nutmeg in it...but my friend liked it so much she wanted to go the next day to get the same thing! I usually get the pasta special which is always tasty...loved the antipasto and/or ceasar salad, olives are delicious! The pasta's the first day were spaghetti w/ tomato/basil, pasta with roast beef - my fav of the three and macaroni and cheese. The 2nd night was again the spaghetti w/ tomato/basil, pasta with veal ragu (has a unique flavor) and mushroom ravioli. Love it! Will be back! Oh - and their Iced Tea is excellent.
