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.

Becco has become wildly inconsistent. It used to be consistently good and on the mark. Last two visits have been disappointing. Meals overly seasoned with black pepper. Pasta special is fine, but perhaps the kitchen cannot handle the extra crowd since they expanded.

We went to Becco before seeing a show on Broadway... Even though our server was very busy he was able to serve us quickly enough so that we made it to the show on time. The food was great and our server bought us a free round of after-dinner drinks because the food took a little bit long to come out (we didn't even notice it took long!!) We even sighted Joe Torre going to dinner with his family after the Yankees game!! Overall a great experience... cozy, bustling, and delicious.

After having dinner at Becco with three friends and enjoying the meal immensely, I booked the restaurant for my friend's birthday dinner for a group of 10 people. Again, the food was incredible and the staff handled the large group with ease and grace. I brought another group of friends to this Italian gem last weekend where, with every bite, they professed the food was the best they'd had in a long, long time.
