    Solid Food

    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.

    Great restaurant for pre-theater meal

    We ate at Becco in July 2007 and had a great experience. The waiter asked if we were going to a show and promised that we would make it to the theater on time. We thought that was a nice touch. The food was excellent and a really great value. We had bread, two entrees, two drinks and shared a dessert for $100 including tip. If you're looking for a meal where you actually say, "yum" out loud while you're eating, Becco is the place.

    Wonderful place!

    I love this place! I went here with my boyfriend and we had a great time. I had the past a special, which started off with a yummy ceasar salad. The pasta specials for the day were mushroom ravioloi in a butter sage sauce, pesto pasta, and tomato basil pasta with fried shrimp-everything delicious. My boyfriend had the rack of lamb, which was moist and full of flavor. In the end we couldnt go wrong with great food, service, and a 25 dollar bottle of wine,

    Poor service ruins delicious meal

    Based on a recommendation from my cousin who frequents Restauarant Row, made a pre theatre reservation for 5 at 6PM (earliest we could get) for last night. They confirmed the reservation with me the prior day. Both when making the res and confirming, said pre theatre. Seated a little late, about 6:20, person who greeted us stated that we were pre theatre, so we were not worried about timing. Also told waiter. We ordered off the menu vs. the pasta tasting and the waiter said we had plenty of time. Had a bottle of wine and our salads, and waited. At 7:10 reminded him we were pre theatre, said entrees would be out shortly, same thing a few minutes later, didn't see him for awhile, then a manager, then another manager appeared, reassuring us. 3 of the 5 of us had to get to a theatre at 53rd and Broadway. At 7:30 4 of our 5 entrees appeared, finally the 5th. There were apologies and the offer of a dessert, but to make our curtain, we left half our meal at 7:45 ...clearly no time for dessert. We grabbed a cab and left for the theatre and our friends to settle the bill. A nice gesture would have been to comp at least part of our half eaten meals or at least the bottle of wine. By the managers appearing they knew they'd messed up. The upside was the food was delicious, the atmosphere nice. Needless to say we won't be back nor reccommend it.

    Highly Disappointed

    We arrived for pre-theater dinner at 5:00PM and were expecting a great experience in view of the Bastianich family tradition of authentic Italian cuisine. We opted for the Pasta Sinfonia which consisted of antipasto or salad accompanied by 3 different pastas. The antipasto was meager and tasteless and the Caesar Salad was just okay. The Bolognese pasta consisted of fusilli and soupy meat sauce redolent with nutmeg and containing peas! Having lived in Bologna I know that the sauce should be tight (thick) and never have I seen peas included or fusilli (rotini) as the pasta of choice. The other two pasta dishes were completely uninventive. Becco has become a tourist destination which does not follow Lidia's rule that food be prepared authentically. For anyone who appreciates Italian food, this is not the place for you.

    You really can't argue.....

    with the amazing prices. When one factors, that you can get a good bottle of wine, antipasto that includes octopus and other fresh fish and an unlimited trio of pastas (my night included ribbons with tomato and basil, linguni with clam sauce and artichoke ravioli in cream sauce) for less than a hundred bucks, no one should complain. Is it as good as other top italian spots, probably not but it's a beautiful space with good food and a great place to go on a budget.

    Never disappointed

    I have eaten at this restaurant now for about the sixth time and I am never disappointed with the food or service. I visit the city 2 to 3 times a year for a show and dinner and a visit to Becco is always teh culmination of great experience. I have tried other restaurants inthe city and though always have a good experience coming back to Becco is is a must. I will be visiting the city again in June for another show and plan to dine once again at Becco. The cost is very reasonable and servings are generous, I have paid more to park my car then what i spend for a wonderful meal. My hat is off to Lydia and her staff for providing such a wonderful dining experience.
