Recommend for pre-theater dinner, but make sure to have a reservation!

The place was loud and packed with tables extremely close together. But then the waiter came by, asked about our theater time, took our orders, and brought back absolutely delicious entrees.

We arrived early for diner with friends and there was no where to stand. Bar is way too small to accommodate waiting diners. Upstairs room was very pleasant for large group and servers were attentive. All-you-can-eat pasta was a let down for most who chose it. Stick with menu items and you'll probably be more satisfied for what it costs.

This was my first visit here for lunch. We arrived as the restaurant was opening at 11:30am without a reservation and were soon seated. The wait staff confirmed that we had theater tickets to ensure we would have enough time to arrive to our show. I tried the $18.95 special which consists of a salad or appetizer and 3 pastas...

Great food and good atmosphere at Becco's . We ate here twice on our vacation-on the first visit we felt that we were sat very close to the adjacent table and this made us uncomfortable. The second time this was not a problem so I guess it depends how busy they are. Good food and great service-wouod recommend.

The first time we ate at Becco's was in April 2014. We went back to this restaurant on March 20, 2015 and again, it was excellent.

This is definitely a restaurant for people who enjoy food. The all you can eat pasta (usually 3 different fresh made) is one of the best value in New York City. Been here a many times and can recommend all the seafood entrees and the osso buco. Skip the brunello and barolo wines and go straight to the back of... More

Great place. First choice is if you want the pastas of the day. You get all you can eat choice of 3 homemade pastas. To die for, wonderful by itself. Any fresh fish is great as is the Osso Buco and the Skirt Steak which is cooked perfect with an outside char. The $29 all Italian wine list is also... More

This was my first trip to Becco's and I would return again. We arrived after an afternoon show so it was not so crowded. As our meal went on, the place filled up, but our service never lessoned. The waiter stayed on top of our table and was aware of exactly where we were in our dining and never let... More

I was recommended to eat here by friends who often do so. I thought I had made a reservation for the Saturday night, but alas had made it for the next day. The girls at the door were friendly and asked if I would be happy to eat at the bar where they also offered the full menu. After much... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
