    This is Italian, Not Italian American!

    Absolutely wonderful. What else can you expect from Lydia Bastianich.. I visit family in Italy every year so I know the difference between Italian American food and real Italian food. This restaurant makes excellent Italian food, true to the homeland. you will not find 'penne alla vodka ' or pasta's drowning in a flavorless sauce on this menu--thank god! and by the way the wine list is extensive and very reasonable, the portions are big so you get your money's worth.

    Love it! One of my favs

    Went to Becco's for lunch 4/21/07. I love this place. The olives they bring with the bread are wonderful, especially the dark green ones. I love the 3 pastas (all you can eat!) for 16.95 (lunch).Today was lamb ravioli, pasta with a wonderful pesto and green beens and home made spaghetti with a simple tomato and basil sauce. One of the reasons it so great are the different tastes that are unexpected but taste wonderful. My mother had the stuffed peppers. They were great, recommend them highly.

    Excellent Italian!

    This is my default Italian restaurant. Whenever I have a friend who's new in town and wants to try Italian food in NYC, this is where I take them. The Ossobucco is to die for, and their all you can eat prix-fixe pasta dishes are usually top notch (you can choose from three dishes for $22 I believe). Sit upstairs if you want some refuge from the racious bar scene downstairs.

    It's All About Timing

    I think the key to enjoying Becco is timing your visit. Those who are catching a show have fewer choices, but if you're just out to enjoy the restaurant, consider dining around 8 p.m. That's what a group of us did for an office party, and we got excellent service. We weren't crowded or rushed, and I think that was in large part because we dined on a weeknight, after the theater crowd, and early in the week (Monday or Tuesday, if memory serves me correctly). The restaurant wasn't empty, but it wasn't packed either. Service was attentive without being attentive or pushy. The pastas were excellent, particularly the ravioli in butter sauce, and the osso bucco was divine--tender, falling off the bone, and more than enough for one person. We'll have to try desserts another day. And by the way, $25 for a bottle of wine is a bargain in New York City. People from out of town may not realize this, but it is indeed true.

    Great food; excellent value

    Our party of 4 dined here last night after a Sunday matinee. We were seated promptly, even without a reservation. The restaurant was crowded, but even with every table full, the noise level was tolerable. Our servers were helpful in choosing the wine (an excellent value at $25) and everyone was friendly and gracious (often an uncommon Manhattan dining experience). We all ordered the unlimited pastas, which were whole wheat pasta in a Bolognese sauce, rigatoni in a fresh tomato and basil sauce, and spinach ravioli. Quite a nice selection for $22. We were asked 3 or 4 times if we wanted more servings, which is not something some posters have reported. The manager also stopped by to ask if everything was OK. It was absolutely a delicious experience on a frigid NY night. Regardless of who the chef is, Becco showed us the quality and attention to detail that I've seen on Lidia's shows but never had the chance to experience. Now if only I could afford Il Posto!!

    Good food

    We had reservations and were promptly seated, but we were really squeezed in tight and it was borderline uncomfortable. The first course came quickly and the second course took forever. Diners who came after us were finished before us. The food was very good but not outstanding. After we got our check, we couldn't get the waiter to pick it up after waiting over 15 minutes. I had to take it with me to the register to pay so we could make our show. I probably won't return.

    Too pricy for ordinary pasta

    You should never have their unlimited pasta. Plus! eventhough we made reservation, the sitting was uncomfortable we constantly had to move our chairs because waiters could not get through unplesant experience. !!
