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!!

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.

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. !!

I was extremely disappointed with my experience at Becco's. Overrated! The food was mediocre and definately not worth the $30 per plate. Unlimited pasta they say?......we never got our second plate full! The place was also uncomfortable in its seating. Six of us were squeezed into a table for four! We were better off at a diner booth!

We had our office Christmas party here. We were seated promptly at the time of our reservation. We chose to have unlimited pasta with our meals and diferrent wines with each course. The Wine Steward chose the wines for us and he made perfect choices each time. The food was exceptional and the waitstaff always made sure everthing was fine and if we needed anything. We have dined here many times and highly recommend dinning here. Because it is so close the theatres I would highly recommend reservations. The Restaurant does get very crowded durring peak hours.

This was our third time here for diner and, as usual, it was a very good experience. It is a little crowded but so are most places in Manhattan. Besides, we got to meet soem lovely local folks seated next to us. My on emistake was not paying attention to the exact pasta dishes on the prix fixe menu. The pumpkin seed ravioli was delicious but very rich and the pesto spaghetti was not to my taste. The shrimp with pene in a creamy tomoato sauce was fantastic and my wife's striped bass were both delicious. The canoli's for desert were awesome. I wil go back here again in the future, highly recomennded!!
