“Reliably good Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

We have been to Becco 3 times over the past 10 years - not often but as we discovered always very reliable great Italian food and excellent service. Despite the 30 degree night temperature I chose a beautiful slow cooked braised Ox Tail main course - perfect. It was my Birthday and it was a great surprise when our waiter came out with a dessert and sparkler for me. So many restaurants now where you cannot book and you are almost forced to share your food - not Becco, you can book and have your own delicious main course! I will now wait so long to go back again

“Oh Yes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

What great food, and great hospitality. The owners are terrific. And the food is fantastic. This was my second visit there, within about a year. So from a consistency standpoint, this place has it. My braised Ox-tail was fabulous. And there were nothing by sighs of delight from all my friends enjoying their respective dishes.

Looking forward to next time! And so thankful for last night.

Enjoy!

“Good night out with friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Good service from the time we arrived until we left. the food was priced a little high but the quality was good. We had quail for starter and it was crispy and moist. The main include duck, fish and steak all cooked as we requested it and served with fresh vegetables. No problems with the wine list as it had many option at various prices
The restaurant was a little noisy but manageable. Over all a good night out. I would recommend it to anyone that is visiting Melbourne on holidays. But make sure you book for dinner lunch maybe a bit more relaxed for walk up meals

“Great food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

The food here is classically Italian and delicious. Our waiter was great fun and had a really good knowledge of the menu. The place had a nice buzz and it's a really good spot if it want to enjoy a night out with friends.

“Happy Customers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We recently dined at Becco and had an enjoyable time. The food was well made, the service was attentive with classic Italian style.
The wine list was good and offered bottles in 275/500ml. The cocktails were also good and well made. We ordered the specials for both main and desert,
Currently a nice ravioli and 500g rib eye on the bone, both were cooked very well, but the rib eye was just slightly over cooked for medium rare.
The desert was a trio of cannoli, which was a beautiful ending to our meal.

The bill was a little on the high side (for two courses and wine) but we enjoyed our meal none the less
