I recently went to Becco after finding it on this website. Yes, it was a bit crowded but the hostess was very accomodating, especially when we arrived 45 min early. We were seated right away. The $25 wine menu is a bit overwhelming but the waiter's recommendation was great! We skipped appetizer in favor of dessert - well worth it! The cannoli was fantastic! The 3 pasta sampler main course was quite a value as well - endless supply of pasta - the spinach stuffed cannelloni was so good, I had to get seconds! Excellent value for the meal and drinks. Will definitely go back!

I have been to Becco many times and always leave satisfied. The pasta sampler is a steal and every pasta I've had has been delicious. Even the basic marinara sauce is great. And I love the 100 wines at $25! The only thing is it's kind of loud and crowded, but as long as you aren't looking for a small, quiet place, the crowd isn't that bad.

On a recent trip to NYC we wandered into Becco's after seeing a play. Becco's was the most wonderful experience we could have hoped for. I cannot imagine getting such a wonderful meal with such an authentic flavor, flair and ambience this side of Europe. Our daughter was enthralled. The food was beyond parallel and they were very accomadating and gracious. Excellent experience. Excellent meal.

I first went to becco oh about 2 or 3 years ago and i absolutely loved it ! despite the crowd the owners accomidated us in every way possible and we got a table very shortly after . they had a special which was an octopus trio which was to die for! followed by a main course with 3 types of pasta! the setting is very cute and comfortable. I have been going back ever since and if you ever do go to becco do try and get the octopus trio!

We had 6 :00 reservation. We arrived at 5:30 and was seated as soon as a table ame available, shortly after we arrived. The service was excellent. The host was friendly. The waiters were not only friendly but extremely helpful. The menus and specials were explained to us with a little history of the restaurant. I had the three pasta appetizer and veal dish. The 3 pasta appetizer was wonderful. My favorite pasta was served with the bolognese sauce. The veal melted in my mouth and the cheese and sauce were fresh and very tasty. My wife had a seafood dish. I of course tasted the dish and loved it. I don't get to come to the city a lot, but I will make Becco's my first choice for dinner

We had the good fortune to visit Becco previously before a show with and at the suggestion of my brother and his girlfriend. We had a wonderful time even though we were running a little late and had to hurry. We all enjoyed Sifonia di Pasta and the Chef's pasta selections and made it to the show on time knowing we'd be back to try more of he menu. The opportunity came this past Monday with a day off and seats to an evening with Van (the man) Morrison at the Garden. Naturally we arrived 45 minutes before dinner starts so we did what comes naturally-sat at the bar. We had such a genuinely nice time there thanks to our bartender and oor waitor, the bar became a table for two. Becco has an extraordinary selection of wine and I don't mean extraordinary in a pretentious expensive vintage names even a beer drinker (no offense to beer drinkers) would recognize way. I mean wines with extraordinary taste, depth, and value. Becco is known for its" value" wine list of varieties for $25.00 and maybe next time I'll get to try a bottle. I just can't get over the reserve wines which are also a great value (i.e. a 10 year old velvety Barolo for $85.00). Wines that you can't buy for less at home, so we had to try them. We also discovered that the Sifonia di Pasta and the Chef's daily pasta selections were only $9.00 with your entrees. I had an outstanding veal chop and my wife had the lamb(unusual for us both to order meat) both prepared exactly as ordered and perfectly complimented by garlic mash potatoes and vegetables. Our meal was followed by a refreshing glass of sweet wine selected for us along with a dessert sampler that was so good it couldn't possibly be good for you. If you enjoy really good food, really good drink, surrounded by really friendly people, then you have to eat here, because I'm an American of Italian descent and my mother taught me that was the Italian way (since in Italy cooking is diff)

We did not have a reservation and while waiting for a table at the bar we had the most fun. The bartenders had endless olives and breadsticks and a very good drink list and their knowledge of wine was amazing. When a table was available we decided to just eat at the bar b/c we were having so much fun learning from the bartenders. I have been there twice since and just go straight for the bar. Plus their homemade pastas are amazing!
