    Believe the Hype

    The food was outstanding! the wine list was far better then I had thought it might be. The food was fantasic, my girlfriend had the short rib and it just fell off the bone. The 3 pasta meals was fabulous and was served right out of the pan itself. The servers were very informative about the specials and defiantly knew how to work the guests. The atmosphere was great (if you like busy restaurants like i do). Its in a nice location and is well lit up inside, not like some other restaurants that have the lights turned down. And for 2 people the bill at the end was far less expensive then I had invisioned. Guys treat your lady to a romantic dinner for 2 here, believe me she'll love it!

    Seriously?

    We are big fans of Lidia and expected so much better than we got. The lemon chicken was gross - thick, dry, and tasted like olives. The veal chop was fatty and greasy. The 3 pastas meal that they are known for was nothing to write home about and I'd never order it again. The wait staff only recommended the Bastianich brand of wine - seriously? Big disappointment.

    Sadly disappointed

    Was anticipating and expecting excellent food but we were sadly disappointed. One pasta was bland and tasteless, the other had a sauce that was too thin and also lacked flavor. The basil tomato spagetti was good (and it was cooked perfectly) but not good enough to carry the meal. The food was medocre at best and not worth experience. Would not return.

    don't bother!

    I'd had high hopes for this place being a big fan of Lidia but I was dissapointed. It was crowded, which is to be expected in a "Restaurant Row" place but the food was not worth the price. I got the 3 pastas meal and it was awful. The caesar salad was soggy and there was very little of it. The nettle pasta explained why people do not normally eat nettles unless they are starving ( I almost choked on it! ). The fettucini with mushrooms and prosciutto had almost no sauce and the prosciutto was all fat. The pasta with tomato & basil was passable but ALL the pasta was served ice cold. The staff were polite but I still left the place hungry not having been able to eat most of what I ordered. Don't bother!

    Oversalted

    My lady friend had the skirt steak, I had the swordfish steak. We both had salads. The place was noisy and tables very close together. WWhen I dine at a place like that, I expect the food to be great. It wasn't. The salads were good (a Ceasar's and a mixed garden), but nothing to write home about. The skirt steak was well-prepared and served. The swordfish was well-nigh inedible--thin, dried out and over seasoned and especially over-salted. While the waitton was sweet and pert, she was late with the entree. I will not return...

    Can't wait to go back

    This place was so fantastic. I can not wait to visit NYC to go to Becco again. I had the pork chop, which the server suggested. I think I made a noise with every bite. I can not stop talking about this place. I would suggest this place!!!

    felt like we were family

    We stumbled upon Becco while wandering around one afternoon and decided to come back for dinner that evening. The food, which was much better than average Italian, was not our reason for multiple returns. The staff who made us feel comfortable and at home were the reason. After theater dinners can be a little hectic as are most places in the area. Sunday and Monday evenings, we found out, were the best nights for not being rushed. They had an all you can eat pasta special, which was wonderful if you can eat that much. but anything on the menu was great. Last time we even brought my 80 yr. old mother who loved the place. Make reservations.
