Becco is a great option for great informal Italian dining. It's regulars tend to go back often. It's in Crossly Street which is pretty 'industrial' (ie fairly ordinary) but it's otherwise well located near the theatre district. It's therefore ideal for anyone who wants to see what good Melbourne Italian is like without paying too much for a classy location.... More

Nice place for a light diner with a couple of wine glasses. Perfect and super friendly service. Just pity the fingerfood list is so limited... I would advise the Olive Ascolane, the Fries Calami, the astonishing warm mixed olives, and the meat balls.

In contrast to some other reviewers, we were disappointed with Becco. Several dishes didn't quite measure up - especially at the prices charged. The pasta special, a ' paccheria', was tough and overcooked. The fettucine was very plain and relatively under-flavoured. And while the pumpkin ravioli was very good, the accompanying coleslaw was rather strange and superfluous. On the positive... More

Becco is what I would term classic Italian. Classic Italian meals based around quality food cooked really well. A case in point is the calamari entree which I tend to pick 75% of the time, simple yet absolutely superb with the quality of the ingredients shining through. The wine list is very, very good with some good priced selections to... More

At first glance at the menu, there doesn't seem to be anything terribly new about the dishes at Becco - simply traditional Italian cuisine that many restaurant attempt. However where this restaurant shines is the quality of the ingredients and the execution. Everything is simply delicious! In some establishments, a beef carpaccio is simply raw beef strips on a plate.... More

As per my 'Near dinner experience' review, BECCO turned out to be an excellent alternative to our booking at Gingerboy to failed to deliver. Excellent food, great wine, great service - I cannot recommend this place enough - we had a fantastic time sitting around a nice large round table in effectively a private dining room - which would be...

After a busy day and a late afternoon flight to Melb with the sun setting over the city, it was time to find dinner. As I wandered along Bourke St, passing Guy Grossi and the famed Pellagrinos, I came to Crossley Lane - ah ah, I thought, what about Becco which I had not visited for years. A table by... More

We moved from Melbourne to Sydney 10 years ago but return at least 6 times a year. Becco is traditional Italian Melbourne fare. You simply can't get this type of food and service in Sydney. Our waiter Georgio was perfect and once we started to discuss Australian Pino Noir I knew that we were in for an informative and friendly... More

Pleasantly surprised by the quality and range of wine available by the glass so you could have different wine with each course if you liked. The carpaccio just melted in your mouth and the duck was very tasty. The calamari and pasta ordered by my dining partner apparently were also very tasty. The waitress was very good, attentive and knowledgeable.... More
