The decor is cozy. The wait staff is knowledgable, patient and pleasant. The food is to die for and for a great price. I ordered the veal ossobuco which was delectable and it came with a complimentary ceasar salad; rarely do fine dining restaurants offer anything complimentary. I will go back every chance I get.

...except for an extraordinarily rude wait staff. My friend ordered the neverending pasta dish, and I ordered Mussels. When my friend asked for a refill of her pasta dish, the Maitre D condescendingly muttered that we really were "cheating" as she saw me sample a ravioli from my friends plate. I was so taken aback- I asked this woman why I couldn't have a sample, and she pointed to my mussels and said rudely, "You only ordered an appetizer. no sharing." It was so bizarre and disheartening. We're never going back again in case we run into that awful Maitre D.

My favorite place to take my parents when they come from South Carolina, especially before the theatre. Big, delicious portions, large, inexpensive wine list (look at the back of the menu), no reservations required (maybe a small wait).

Becco was recommended by some friends and we had a great dinner. Pasta was spot on, meat dishes great, desserts grand. Wine list a great value. Service was very good, and the girls liked the ambience. Whats not to like here? Great value - we are fans!!!

Disappointing experience

Took my family for lunch today, I have been coming here for 10 years. Service from waiter (Daniel #287) was very poor, almost like we were a bother. My children's pasta lunches (plain pasta with butter) was $13.50. That's just piggish. My draft beer, which I think was 8 ounces, was $7.00. Yes, I know I'm in NYC, but the prices seem a tad on the unreasonable side. Pasta special were bland as well. Perhaps many of the reviews are on point, I didn't think so before today. The other service staff was excellent, I hope they at least got tipped out well. $150.00 total for our lunch for 4. To much for what we ended up getting.

Two visits and both highly satisfactory. Absolutely spot on food served by knowledgable, pleasant staff. Meatballs and pasta excellent. Not difficult to see why this restaurant was packed and 20 others locally had staff in the street trying to get customers. Cant wait to go back, hope they keep up this standard.

I went to this wonderful place when it first opend and was only the front room. I have never been disappointed (although some times have definitely been better than others). The place has grown and grown (and my only complaint is that it is TOO popular - and can get very crowded). The pasta dinner is a BARGAIN, as well as the desert sampler plate. I have taken many people there through the years and EVERYONE has loved it and gone back (even the out-of-otwners). I have had major special occassions and parties there. I LOVE the place! I only wish that the pumpkin ravioli was on the daily menu. It would be great if there was a special hotline or better a webside lisiting of the 3 daily pastas. And buy another blg next door to make it even larger so that spur of the moment pasta cravers can get in.

For a major Lydia fan what a disappointment! Went for Lunch - Joe was right there just like on TV. Three pastas - highly starchy. Like an Old Country Buffet all you can eat. No refinement, no finesse. My waspy in-laws do just the same with a jar of Ragu. If you are a midlander who likes starchy pasta and red sauce - this is your kinda place. But if you've ever eaten the real thing - stay away.
