Pushy Service

The service was pushy and the servers were obnoxious. The food was good, but the dining experience was ruined by the classless service.

A Shocking Dissapointment....

So many friends, many of whom work for food magazines recommended this restaurant. We went with high expectations and were sorely disppointed by the thoughtless, rude waiter waiting on us. The food was less interesting than expected and the wine list left a lot to be desired. With so many great Italian restaurants in NYC why put up with attitude and a mediocre experience???

Overpriced and overly seasoned

The exterior is adorable, bringing a Tuscan country feel to the heart of Manhattan. The greeting was warm. After starting with a bellini (proseco and fresh peaches), we ordered an assortment of appetizers. At something like $9-$11 each, I found the portions small. Descriptions were more appealing than the actual dishes. The octopus "salami" was rather tasteless. Zucchini flowers stuffed with something were cute, but miniscule and though better than the other appetizers, nothing outstanding. We moved on to chicken (totally overwhelmed with rosemary) surrounded by wishy washy, tasteless potatoes. The salad had so much tarragon, I actually winced and sent it back. They accommodated our request for olive oil to accompany the bread and that was excellent. The dessert, the pan a cotta, with a few berries was better than the meal had been. Espresso, too, was good. For the three of us the bill was $150 (and that was with only one drink, tap water, two main courses, one dessert and perhaps 4 or 5 appetizers). We were not stuffed. The heavy handedness of the seasoning made the dishes truly unpleasant. And I thought the prices were high for what we got.

Butcher's spaghetti is silly

  • No, I would not go back!

After reading a review, we were enticed by the author's favorite dish of Butcher's Spaghetti. We were offended. Overcooked thin pasta with the tiny bits of pork sausage lumped in pile that resembled something out of a can . Bland beyond belief. Ravioli with Fois Gras that was soaked and swimming in butter was no better. And one sausage with some "imported" beans on the side for $11 was ridiculous. Come on. The waiter was very nice but seldom seen. I wouldn't go here if someone else paid the bill.

Dissapointment at Beppe

Had a very bad meal at Beppe, overly simplified food, not cooked well, a few good pasta but thats it. Pork chops over cooked, steak too small, not enough seasoning on any dises except pasta. Service was OK, wine list interesting and reasonably priced. Owners should get back there ASAP, they must be at there new place now, it shows. Never going back. I heard this place was comparable to Mario Batali, what a joke.

Flashes of Potential, But Some Glitches

An immediate turn-off was our server. She told us that the chef recommends that each table have three savory courses (apps, pasta and mains). We fell for it, but it wasn't a very Italian way to eat a meal and ended up feeling unbalanced. My tablemate ordered the 'Italian Fried Chicken', a marketing gimmick that features a large bowl of fried chicken pieces with some lemon wedges. I guess the lemon is the Italian part, but eating the dish from a bowl was unwieldy and made for a dumb main. The rest of the food I recall as good, but eminently forgettable.

From the moment we walked in, it reminded me of Tuscany. The food was as good as my Grandmother's and I can't wait to bring my parents!! The wine was Fantastic as well.

Beppe makes very hearty food - earthy and filling. The french fries are fabulous. The fireplace is very homy and the service is very attentive.

I found the rustic decor very relaxing giving the restaurant an almost casual feel. The service and food were outstanding. I had the most delicious gnocci I had every tasted.
