Excellent pasta

The food and atmosphere were very good and the wait staff very knowledgeable. We thought it was a bit pricey but enjoyed it. The portion size was on the small side.

As an italian that moved to NY and was missing real italian food, I was very lucky to find this place. Everything was good: from the focaccia to the fresh pasta, dessert and even the coffee, which is a miracle here!!! Complimenti allo chef, bravissimo!!!!!

I had been to ViceVersa a few times before, but not recently. I returned earlier this week and was so glad to see that the food there is still excellent and the service is elegant. It's not an inexpensive restaurant but the quality is in line with what you pay, and I won't let a couple years pass before I... More

We bumped into this restaurant on a walk through Midtown. The place looks unassuming from the outside and even a bit empty: that's because the staff seats diners by the small patio out back. Food was interesting and a bit surprising for lunch. Plus, a 2-hour mimosa special kept us lingering.

Where to start? How about at “ $115 for two (before tip) for an absolutely fantastic dinner” in NYC ! I rarely give a 5 star rating but from the atmosphere, to the wait staff, to the food, it was far and above one of the best restaurants we’ve been to in a long time. We are not necessarily big...

Went with my wife before an 7 pm show. Got to the restaurant at 5:30, and they made sure we were on time. Had the restaurant week menu (which varied from what was on the web site). Food was good, and service was attentive.

We were searching for a place near the theater and this place had good reviews. It blew us away with service and food. We were so glad we went here and definitely will return. It's hidden a bit but has the nicest locale with a quiet patio out back. The food was amazing!! We had our teen daughter with us... More

We were looking for an Italian restaurant in Hell's Kitchen and decided to give ViceVersa a try without any prior recommendations. The venue itself is beautiful - the outdoor patio area in the back is honestly gorgeous in comparison to the Hell's Kitchen area. All meals ordered were incredibly tasty - however, they were very small in size (we did... More

Went for a birthday celebration and experience a wonderful staff who was not only friendly and helpful but helped make a lasting impression. The food was wonderful as were the cocktails. Won't hesitate to return again and share with others.

Apart from this, it was a very pleasant meal, excellent food, good service, a nice atmosphere and not too loud. Good portion sizes too - i.e. not too big, so you can try all the courses without coming out feeling unable to move! Would definitely go back. Not too expensive either - given the quality.

Staying in Midtown

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.
