The name Becco is derived from the Italian verb beccare, which means to peck, nibble or savor something in a discriminating way.
Lidia Bastianich & her son, Joseph, opened Becco in the theater district in 1993. It is best known for its acclaimed $17.95 pre fix lunch menu & $22.95 pre fix dinner menu that includes a large assortment of Italian antipasti or a classic Caesar salad together with unlimited tableside servings of our 3 daily pasta preparations. Becco also offers an extensive a la carte menu including chicken, fish, veal, & pork entrees & a wide selection of Italian wines, all priced at $25.00 per bottle.
All I can say is WOW! As a critical foodie I can find nothing wrong with Becco. The food is outstanding and I have had such nice waitstaff each time I've been there. The wine list is plentiful and each bottle is $25.00 which is a great bargain in NYC. Love it!
