I recently ate here for the first time - Jan/05. It was great! The service and food were top notch (like one would find in Milano or London) and the wine list not only exceptional but put together with value and taste in mind (by a real oenophile - Jeremy). Highly recommended. It attracts an interesting, cosmopolitan crowd (once the theatre goers have been fed!). Mange!

My family ate here on 12/24 it was in a nice location for visitors. I found this restauant to be good but not great.

I have eaten in Becco several times and each time it is better. This place is truly one of the best in the theatre district. They pack them in but you don't quite feel like you are sitting in your neighbors lap like you do in most of the restaurants in the area. The service is always extremely friendly and helpful. The $25 wine list boasts some great wines for a low price. Go for either the lemon chicken, the veal chop or the pasta dish.

I love Lydia's cooking, and have learned a lot from watching her show. However, her cooking staff apparently hasn't been paying attention. Sadly, our table of 11 people was greeted with a small basket of bread, and a tiny dish of olives. A table of our size should be immediately offered at least 3-4 small olive dishes and at least 2 breads. I started with a sampling of 3 pastas...they were good but not nearly as good as I could make at home from Lydia's recipes, and not even as good as I expect from Tony's di Napoli on e83, where the pasta specials are often very good. The cooks didn't seem to have the right touch to bring these recipes to fruition. One was a black ravioli with pumpkin filling...ok but no revelation here....another was spaghetti with julienned vegetables...this was the best. The 3rd was rigatoni in a seafood sauce...mediocre. I think I got 4 rigatoni, and they were all broken. Joe's Veal Chop was tasty and nicely cooked, however Joe must be a flyweight. There wasn't much to savor here...a few choice pieces and you're done. Caesar salad comes with all entrees. It shouldn't. I'd rather pay $8 and get a flavorful caesar with some anchovies. Desert was ho-hum sorbets...ok, the raspberry was good...period. With wine, this meal came to about $90 each...not outrageous, but I feel our money would've been better spend at Uncle Nick's on 9th ave, or Tony's di Napoli where at least you get a lot of leftovers to enjoy!

Wow is all I can say to this restaurant. The food was great and the service was incredible, not the "over-the-shoulder" overbearing type, but always there when we needed something. Full dinner sampler of house specialties was to die for, everything from the appetizers through dessert...everything was so unique. Reasonably priced per person included everything through dessert, only drinks were a la carte. I recommend this restaurant to anyone in NYC or just coming for a visit, you won't regret it!

Pasta sampler was wonderful, served al dente, and piping hot throughtout our meal. Service was attentive, but definitely relaxed as was the atmosphere.

After strolling "restaurant row" without any knowledge of the various restaurants there, we took a chance on Becco. What a great surprise. The pasta sampler was delicious. The extra touch of the seafood/veggie antipasto was a change from the ordinary. My wife had chicken breast that was also delicious. The reasonably priced wine (lots of selections for $25) was also very enjoyable. This place was a perfect ending to a day of New York shopping.
