What a wonderful experience we had dining at Becco! The pasta was supurb, service was prompt and pleasant and we also enjoyed wine from the homeland of Italy. What a great spot to find before our Theatre evening.

We figured a restaurant with Lydia's name attached to it would be a great place for good italian food. We were wrong. The pasta was overcooked and ladled out at the table. The ravioli must have come right out of the pot because the waiter slopped water onto the plate as well. The recommended calamari appetizer was something you would expect from the Olive Garden. They didn't bother melting the cheese on the veal parmesan. The place was stiflingly hot, the decor was depressing, the rooms were loud, the service was slow, the meal was expensive. The place is basically an overpriced tourist trap.

Went to dinner tonight with my husband and I have to say it was one of the best meals we have had. The food not only was excellent, but the service was just as great Have to also add that "Jeremy" and "Tom" were 2 of the most pleasant people we have ever dealt with. Keep up the great work. Can't wait to come back!!

This is a great place to go for pre-theater dinner. Absolutely delicious food. I definitely recommend the unlimited pasta entree. If you're wise you'll fill your plate even after you're full and take home the leftovers.

I'll preface by saying my review may be tainted, Becco will forever have a place in my heart b/c it is where my bf first said "I love you," but that aside I think I can still give it an unbiased review. First and foremost for me is the wine, they have a small menu of about 60 wines for $25, and many are great values. We had the 2006 Barbera d'Asti, Tre Vigne and it was wonderful. The bread and foccacia they give with their red pepper and olive oil is yummy. We split the mussels with garlic and bread for an appetizer, delicious. Thank God we both ate it or there'd be no kissing later that night though. I also recommend they 3 pastas you can get with you meal. My bf got that and we split them, more than enough. The pastas are handmade and change daily, but our spinach ravioli, garlic claim linguine and farfalle with tomato and basil were all wonderful. For entrees I had the zuppa di pesce which was good, though I wasn't in love with the lobster broth. My bf had the salmon over a puree of fava beans which was really good. I can't comment on dessert but I'm sure it's delicious as well. The place is very romantic, we sat outside, and the food was delicious, highly highly recommended.

Went to Becco today with 10 friends after enjoying an afternoon matinee. The food was amazing. I had the pasta special, it was great. Desserts also were delicious. The service however, was not so great. Our server(who shall remain nameless) rushed us in and tried to rush us out. It made our first experience at Becco a little nerve racking. Hopefully someone out there who is connected with the restaurant will see this and speak to the staff. Part of the experience is not only the food, but the atmosphere too!
