Becco is a great choice for a casual business lunch, catch up with friends or dinner before a show. Food is good simple quality. Decor is also simple with a casual dining atmosphere.

We enjoyed a special meal with friends at Becco, and had a wonderful night.... Every dish tasted was put together carefully, and with thought and attention. The desserts in particular were amazing. Very slick service, helpful wine advice. Couldn't have been better.

Wonderful atmosphere and food. The wine list is extensive and the Italian wines are excellent. Wait staff were extremely attentive and friendly. The menu is comprehensive, without going overboard. Great location.

Excellent location for a few couples to get together. There for four couples with us and we had a wonderful large round table in a private room. Everyone was pleased with their food but the veal was excellent. Service was excellent

Recently visited Becco while staying at Rydges on Exhibition. It was a small walk around the back of the hotel before going to the theatre at Her Majesty's. It was an amazing place to have dinner. I started with freshly shucked oysters and then had the most amazing gnocchi ever accompanied by a glass of Shiraz (well2 glasses actually) and... More

This would be our 3rd time to Becco over the course of 5 or 6 years. It is comforting coming to a place you know will serve delicious food, which is even more memorable now than when we last came. The duck risotto was amazing, and my husband raved about his Pork Ragu. Great service, great atmosphere and comfortable dining.

A truly accommodating restaurant, we went quite late in the evening after going to the theatre, the lady who greeted us couldn't have been friendlier, the food and service were first class.

If you looking for a place that serves good quality food opposed to a noisy and trendy place then you need to visit Becco.It is an institution in Melbourne, even with the other major competitors lurking around the corner this place simply serves up good quality Italian food.Since my last some twelve months ago I think that it has lost...

Becco is really an institution, I use to eat there quite a lot when we lived in Sydney, YES I often came to Melbourne for business and clients always wanted to go to Becco. The food is still fantastic and the open kitchen full of noise and fire while the "Italian" chefs cook away. We had the St Helen Mussels,... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
