Excellent Italian menu midtown

The restaurant maitre d' helped me cross the icy sidewalk to enter the restaurant. The service was perfect, with attention to every detail. I had the sesame salmon, which was excellent. The sorbet was very tasty and nicely presented.I loved the interior design of the place.

Good Italian food, not expensive, good atmosphere, and great service. Would recommend for a dinner before a show.

A friend and I had dinner here before taking in a show. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal here. To begin, the Manhattans are delicious. Someone knows how to make a Manhattan properly! Service was impeccable - friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We were moved along at an appropriate pace, but certainly not rushed. I highly recommend this for a... More

Thank-you reviewers, as I went here based on your recommendations. Was going to see Jersey Boys and this is very close to the theater. They do take reservations. They are very welcoming, interior is warm and inviting. Wait staff is very attentive. Tried several dishes. Yes, the dishes are not cheap or plentiful for the average person, but were very... More

We had a wonderful Italian meal pre-theater in New York, with probably the best Italian dish that I've ever had. Although the individual ingredients sounded odd as a combination, together, they blended into a magnificent "orchestra of flavor." It had casoncelli pasta, veal, golden raisins, amaretto cookies, sage, Grana Padano cheese, butter and pancetta. One of the restaurant owners told... More

My fiance and I had an excellent experience here on New Year's Eve. There was a prix fixe 4 course menu with the option of a wine pairing for a little more. We definitely went with the wine pairing and it was so worth it. The dinner stretched out from 9:30 to midnight, which was perfect, ending in a champagne... More

Came for lunch with my family. The lunch menu is delicious but my family thought it was limited. I really loved it.

Having heard good things about this place from a neighbor (and having read mostly good reviews on this and other sites), I brought a large group here for dinner. I had the mushroom pappardelle and it was just swimming in oil. It was hard to even eat it. The service and the atmosphere were just fine, if not worth writing... More

We discovered ViceVersa as a drop-in near our hotel, and have been going back at least twice every trip to New York. It's that good. This time I had Artic Char, prepared just right, almost undercooked. Calves liver was done just right, and very tender. The Papperdelle is one of the best pasta dishes I've had. This restaurant manages to... More

Our best meal during our stay in New York by far. I had one of their signature dishes, the ravoli stuffed with veal, raisins and amaretto which was absolutely devine. The Bourbon Pecan pie was very decent as a well for the dessert. I would thorough recommend eating there during a stay in New York.

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
