First of all I want to submit that I come from Gragnano (known as the european capital of the pasta), and seeing that they use the same way and the same ingredients to make it means a lot to me! Franco (the owner) is very friendly and he knows well the sense of the hospitality... That place is one of... More

Food was very good. Service was excellent. Forgot our digital tickets for Book of Mormon. They bailed us out: emailed to them and they printed. Would not take gratuity for this.

The pasta here is cooked perfectly and the preparations show imagination and a great understanding of tradition at the same time. The service was friendly and the atmosphere just delightful. I had a small stuffed pasta filled with veal, raisin, amaretto cookies and seasoned with sage, butter and pancetta. Out of this world. My friend had spaghetti with crab meat... More

We were introduced to Vice Versa by a friend who is a Manhattanite and we haven't been disappointed. Vice Versa is in the outskirts of the theater district so it seems to garner a more local crowd...not a lot of tourists. This last experience was positive again. I substituted for a friend at the last minute for "Wicked." (By the... More

Arrived in the middle of a huge thunderstorm and the restaurant was not crowded. We were placed in the corner next to the waiters station which suited my husband as we could look over the room but also had the waiters talking and placing their orders close to our table. So not a great start for me. We started with... More

Delicious meal in a lovely setting. Love that they have two sizes for all the pasta dishes. Get the small size and then there is still room to try some of the other selections. We were impressed with everything we ordered and will be back to try others. Service was friendly and efficient. Decor is simple but pleasant and there... More

I liked everything about this restaurant, beginning with the friendly greeting and ending with the scrumptious cookies. Our group began with an assortment of appetizers, such as grilled marinated eggplant, fried zucchini slices, and prosciutto-wrapped melon. We then had a primo consisting of seafood risotto and pasta amatriciana. We each picked a secondo, which for me where the grilled scallops.... More

ViceVersa is a charming NYC Theater district restaurant. It has style, delicious food and a lovely outdoor garden area. The food selections are delightful and the portions perfect for before theater. We enjoyed a variety of appetizers from salads, to a polenta dish and delicious and unusal meatballs. Our main dishes were excellent as well. We have been to ViceVersa... More

In addition to outstanding food, the staff was wonderful. A gentleman at the next table was getting drunk on martinis and was loud and obnoxious. It was clear to see and we appreciated that the staff kept a close watch on him so that he wouldn't become too disruptive. The staff was also attentive to us.

We stopped into Vise Versa with little time to spare before our show. They accommodated us and found us a table for 2 right away. They had us in and out in an hour as they knew we had tickets. The wine was good, the food delicious (some of the best lasagne we've had) and the service was awesome! It... More
