Watch any episode of Lidia Bastianich's cooking shows and your mouth will be watering for one of her Italian dishes. That's why I was so excited to dine at one of her restaurants during a recent trip to New York City. 

You can find Becco in Hell's Kitchen. The food here is simply unforgettable. Each meal begins with a basket of bread. There are thin and crispy bread sticks. There's Italian bread with that's soft with a crunchy crust. Be sure to order some ricotta with it. It's served nice and cold with a drizzle of honey. So good!

Becco is known for their Sinfonia di Paste. Every day, their chef prepares three different pastas of his choice. For $22.95, you get antipasto or a Caesar salad with UNLIMITED pasta! The waiters come out with huge skillets of pasta and fill your plate. We had mushroom ravioli, spaghetti with red sauce and fusilli bolognese. I can't even begin to tell you how delicious this was! Homemade pasta. Cooked to perfection. The flavors were amazing and the servers just keep filling your plates. I had two rounds and was stuffed after that. 

They have a huge wine menu, cocktails, beers. There are many fish and meat entrees. There are several classic desserts like ricotta cheesecake. If you go, go for the Sinfonia di Paste. It was one of the best meals I've ever had. , , , ,
