We were looking for something in the area where we could book, have a nice dinner and a good catchup. And to be honest, it delivered. Not too noisy, good staff and the food was your regular Italian; maybe a bit dated. We did wonder whether we'd chosen the best option in Australia's eating capital, but we didn't feel ripped...

You won't be disappointed with a visit to Becco. Very good Italian food, charmingly delivered with full-on Italian-style service (think flair, panache and promptness). A great experience all round.

On a whim Friday night we decided to visit Becco, an Italian restaurant we used to frequent about 8 years ago. You can tell how this review will end can't you? Walking past the restaurant, it was pretty empty, on a Friday night probably not a good sign but we persisted. When fish & chips is on the specials list... More

It has been about 8years since we were last here. Not sure if it's my memory or it is a reality but the experience wasn't as good as I had hoped. The service was ok, the food uninspiring, the wine list was pretty good. The first warning sign was that we were able to get a table strait away, previously... More

Had a dinner last night with my husband (it was his bday) and we had a great time! Food was amazing! I had a beautiful pork belly to start followed by an absolutely perfect and tender oxtail with polenta. My husband's cheviche was full of flavour and main - flathead with coleslaw nicely finished the evening. We followed an advice... More

Having dined at Becco numerous times I was looking forward to a great night of excellent food- however on this occasion was left highly disappointed- whilst wait staff were friendly, food service was poor (entrees not arriving together ) and some dishes were poor quality given the price- a minute steak for $35 was literally just that- a scotch fillet...

Great service and menu with a good atmosphere. A little out of the way and unassuming in the lane way but step inside to very professional reception and attentive service. Meals came out together and lived up to expectations. A good range of specials complemented the standard menu.

I've been to this restaurant 3 times and never got disappointed. The stuff is so friendly and very knowledgable about food and wine. I had the ricotta and beetroot risotto and the duck risotto, both absolutely delicious! My partner had the lamb shoulder and tasted divine. We also had the fried oysters with aioli mayo that was in the specials,... More

A friend and I dined here this evening. It was an over priced underwhelming event. The initial service was quick, and we got a table right away at 8:00 on a Saturday night. However, the experience from there was not worthy of the prices. I had to ask for items a few times, the spag vongole had unopened clams (think... More

We dined in the private dining room, attended to by the lovely Micki, who was a discrete but observant waitress, with a beautiful manner and gorgeous Italian accent. 8 of us dined and all our meals were served at the same time, with the same care and attention to detail in each one. Entrees selected among others were Beer Battered... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
