Becco has some really fine dishes on the menu. The Lasagne Bolognese however , is one of the worst things I've eaten in a restaurant. The whole dish had a soupy, washed out taste. It must have been frozen and nuked. It reminded me of the type of thing Mama Leone's was serving in the sixties.

We had reservations for three on a Friday at 5:30. We were seated promptly upstairs. It was the first time that we had been there. Service was very good and our waiter was excellent. Two of us had ordered the all you eat pasta with a choice of either caesar salad or antipasti. The food was good but I felt that it was nothing special for it having a famous chef's name tied to it. However, the waiters came around often with the all you can eat pasta and dished out generous servings. The third person of our party had the lemon chicken and she said that she liked it. All of the staff there were welcoming and nice. By the time we left, the place was very packed. We were glad that we sat upstairs b/c the bar area is adjacent to the downstairs downing room and it was very crowded. Also if you need to use the bathroom, beware of the wait staff. B/c the bathrooms are near the kitchen. Although the food was not excellent, I would probably go again to try the entrees.

I have been to Becco's 18 times in the last 3 years. We were there last night and had a great waiter Eric #30 who was just super, but also the Host Tom was outstanding. He made our dining so great, is the reason we continue to come to the restaurant. It was my brother's birthday and heloved the OssoBocco, and I can say he will be back. Nov 3rd will be remembered. Thank You again for a great staff and a wonderful evening. We will be back again for #19.

Visited Becco's on 10/13/07. We were put at a table for two which was just too small. We ordered two appetizers to share and when I asked for a plate I was told it wouldn't fit on the table and the plate of fried calamari was dumped in front of me. For a main course I ordered the special - veal sorrentino. Well there were thick slices of eggplant, cheese and tomato but where was the veal was my question. Also we enjoy a bottle of Pinot Grigio with dinner. They only had one brand which was very surprising. Menu is limited and when you order the 3 pasta special they don't come around too often to give you more. Would think twice about going back.

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.

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.
