Lovely warm inviting atmosphere. The starters are appropriately sized and incredibly delicious. The mains are generous and very yummy, left me wishing I had more room in my stomach! The service is careful, polite and professional while still being friendly. Overall the meals were extremely delicious, smartly presented and delivered with impeccable service. Will absolutely be returning.

I was taken to Becco for lunch by one of my subcontractors along with my team. The food was fantastic as was the service. I will definitely be visiting again this time with my wife. Well done to the chefs and management on a truly great restaurant .

This place has a good option of non pasta dishes. They also have a reasonable drinks list. The serving sizes can be quite big though. We didn't have pasta but according to my friends who have been here before, pasta serving size is not too big. The service here is pretty good. The Italian waiter is very friendly. Good place...

You will come across some bistros and restaurants where you can have really good food but unpleasant service or the other way. But Becco is definitely one that satisfy both! Really enjoyed my meal there and the prompt service staff really made the session even more memorable! Definitely coming back!

We have eaten here whenever visiting Melbourne over the past few years and the service and food seem to get better every time. This visit was a week night - without a booking which was no problem. We had a super Italian waiter "David" who at the end of the night gave us a list of best places to visit... More

Had my birthday dinner here on Saturday night (my pick) and enjoyed another great meal. We had carpaccio (yet to find a better one anywhere in the world), steak, pork belly, pasta, bombe Alaska and other things I can't remember. The kids shared some things and everyone had a lovely meal. Service was attentive and friendly, the place has a... More

Becco situated in a lane off the top of Bourke street is well worth a visit for a chatty group out. My friends had ox tongue, lamb shanks and risotto of the day for me which was faultless. Portion sizes as well well not overly large which is a welcome change. The service was excellent and worthy of a generous... More

Becco is a Melbourne institution, it is buzzy, sophisticated and it is always a good night when we go there. Have been here many times over the years, most recently yesterday, and once again it was wonderful. Gorgeous Italian food, every course was amazing. Pasta, scallops, risotto, veal, we had it all. Our wait staff were attentive and professional I... More

It was lovely and refreshing to find a restaurant that does so well across the board. Wait staff were professional, nothing was too difficult. I have food allergies and eating out can be a nightmare. Not at Becco!! The food divine with a great menu. Ùnfortunately we missed desert as our eyes were bigger than our tummies. It's been a... More

I expected a lot....after reading reviews here! The ambience is great and the service exceptional. I thought that the food was average...the duck for the main was overlooked and dry....and arrived cold. At these prices one would expect a higher standard of food.

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.
