The Godfather of scrumptious Italian cucina in New York was a man named Tony May. He had a series of famous Italian restaurants and even operated The Rainbow Room. Vice Versa was started by a Tony May Alumni Group. Started in 1999 and Zagat rated 24, for “top notch Italian cooking in a sleek interior and a pleasant dining experience.” Vice Versa is a NY Magazine Critics top pick stating, “the modern lines of Vice Versa are so (unassuming) it’s easy to walk right by its storefront. Do so, and you’ll be missing out on one of the most congenial and gratifying restaurants in the theater district, as well as one that’s become a whispered neighborhood favorite. Like a hit play that opened with little fanfare, Vice Versa is full of diverting surprises.” Owned by Franco Lazzari and Stefano Terzi, they use only the highest quality ingredients produced locally or imported from Italy. In the kitchen, Stefano makes all pasta from scratch. Stefano’s cooking respects the characteristics of each ingredient and values their qualities in each recipe-a true embodiment of the philosophy of Italian Cuisine. 4.5 stars on Open Table, 4 stars on YELP, Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor.
