My husband and I went to Becco last night on the recommendation of many friends and we loved it! The food was fantastic and we had a lovely dining experience. Instead of having the endless pasta, which seemed a little too glutonous, we ordered the swordfish and angus steaks. The portions were huge, the food was simple and flavorful, and the wine selections were great. The only slight flaw was that the place was so busy that the waiter couldn't get to us quite as often as we would have liked. Expect to spend about $100 a couple, but walk away thoroughly full and satisfied.

I travel to restaurants all around the area. This one is of highest esteem!

Becco is a nice joint even for those who don't favor Italian food, such as myself. The plan is to order a main course, with the addition of the three pastas of the day, and a bottle of wine from their extensive $25 list. You will receive as much of the three pastas as you care to request, but don't overdo it because the main courses are sizable themselves. The steak barely fits on the plate, and is absolutely mouth-watering. The rack of lamb is a tasty double-rack. And if you have time for a foray into gluttony, the dessert list will please anyone.

I dined here last Wednesday night with 8 other guests who are all New York savy, each work in the Midtown/Timesquare area, and who dine frequently. Three ladies were already very familiar with Becco and, knowing its excellence, made sure this was the restaurant we celebrated a special birthday. I was amazed that this gem of a restaurant exists in Time Square were mediocre food is dished out quickly to unsuspecting guests/tourists for too much money. Becco, however, was spot-on in its attentive service, amazing food, and impressive wine list. Our night was made complete because the wine sommelier, Louis, made us each feel like VIP guests, chose wonderful and special wines for the table, and charmed us endlessly. I would recommend this restaurant to out-of-towners looking for a special experience and New Yorkers alike. I will certainly be spending my birthday dinner here, too!!

We chose Becco because of its connection with the Bastianich family, but were utterly disappointed by the ordinary menu and bland food, which is more reminiscent of a local outer-borough or suburban Italian restaurant. We had expected a lot more complexity and flavor considering the association with Lidia! The service was fine and the prices were fair, and, if you can, sit in the back room under the sky light which is a lot more appealing than the crowded front. There are better choices available along restaurant row.

Becco was a wonderful dining experience. It was a perfect September afternoon and four of us dined on the terrance. Great for people watching! Glad we did as later on the inside got very crowded and loud on the bar side. Our server was very knowledgeable and had a wonderful command of the English language. She was a delight. The food was over the top delicious. Starting with Cesar salad, moving onto apitizers, pasta sampling, and main course of Veal, Lamb and Pork, fabulous. Not to mention the excellent wine selected by my friend. The pacing of the meal was perfect and at no time did we feel rushed. Our server was well aware we had tickets to a show but we allowed ourselves plenty of time to enjoy a wonderful dining experience for 2 1/2 hours....Perfect!

Just a solid italian restaurant. Food is all very good, wine list just fine, a terrific "red sauce" place. The meatballs are amazing. Fun, good, reasonable for NYC.
