    Like eating at my relatives when I was young.

    I visited last summer and absolutely loved the place. I ate there twice in two days as I loved it so much. I plan to return. The dishes were wonderful. It tasted like home cooked, only even better. I absolutely know fabulous food and especially excellent Italian food. This is it. The wait staff were fine and competent. The tables were not too close last year. I would gladly suffer close tables, if they are close, for the food. If you don't like lines, reserve a table, which I will do now that I have read about the lines.

    Better Options Abound

    Becco actually has good food--especially their meatballs. That being true, it makes how poor the service is all the more distressing. Did no one at this restaurant learn the basics of how to run a quality business? For some reason the owners think it's fine to have the patrons line up outside like it's the shake shack. At least the people working at the shake shack are friendly. Several of the people working the Becco door were rude when I asked about the line, and if weren't for my elderly parents, I would not have waited. Once you get inside things aren't much better with tables positioned absurdly close together. I won't be returning to this restaurant, and if you are looking for a place to go before the theater there are MANY better options in the hells kitchen area.

    Talk about cramped

    I've been to Becco's many times and thought the tables were close. But now they are even closer. There is no room for wait staff to move around, let alone patrons to get to or from their tables. Food continues to be consistently good, but I hesitate to go back because of the cramped atmosphere despite the good food.

    Atmosphere ruined the meal

    Just agreeing with the others who found this restaurant cramped and noisy. A drink spilled on our teeny table and no effort was made by anyone to clear the spill. *I* ended up bussing the plates away. It was impossible to have a conversation. The people next to us joined in our conversation because we had to talk so loud just to be heard they thought they were included in our conversation. The food was pretty good but I can find food that good for less money in a much nicer environment less than 10 short blocks away. It occurred to me that Lidia herself would probably not enjoy eating there. It's too bad. I've eaten at a lot of Italian places in NYC but don't plan to dine at Becco again. It's for tourists only.

    Used to be much better

    We cannot understand what has happened here. Becco it seems has begun to rest on its past...not great practice for any restaurant however when you are in the theatre district of NYC you can possibly get away with it. Overall the quality and prep of some of the dishes are what is at fault. Dry overcooked chicken,,,,burnt lasagna to mention a few. Best part is their own wine list and sorbets, breadbasket and olives. As well, the front of the house seem to be a bit inexperienced as well, too young and not aware of what is going on in a busy place.

    Our First Time

    Upon arriving at Becco's, we and several other couples entered the small entrance room. We were all asked to come in before they opened the door to the restaurant. I realized they wanted to keep all of the cold air from entering the room and protect the patrons from getting a cold rush of air. Very thoughful of them. There are 2 floors for dining and we went to the second floor. Our waiter, all 6foot7 of him,was very polite and courteous. All of the other wait staff, and there were plenty of them, were very adept at there individual tasks. We had the salmon, venison and veal chop, all prepared perfectly. A ceasar salad comes with all entrees. The wines, about 50 on the last page of the menu, are priced at $25. There is a separate wine book for those who want something special. We would highly recommend Becco's.

    Nice choice in theatre district

    My wife and I dined after seeing a play which was just down the street. We didn't have reservations, but were promptly seated. She tried the veal chop, which was excellent. I did the 3 pastas meal. The pastas were good, not great. Service was very good. We didn't like that the tables were so close together. We initially had an empty table next to us, then a loud-mouth jerk and his date were seated next to us. We put up with his annoying stories for 5 minutes before we asked to move. The restaurant handled that smoothly without causing any ruffled feathers. I'd definitely eat there again.
