Top choice italian in Midtown

ViceVersa is quintessential Italian: suave and sophisticated, affable and scrumptious. The menu features refined, cross-regional dishes like arancini with black truffle and fontina cheese. For a celebrated classic, order the casoncelli alla bergamasca (ravioli-like pasta filled with minced veal, raisins and amaretto cookies and seasoned with sage, butter, pancetta and Grana Padano), a nod to chef Stefano Terzi's Lombard heritage.

The bar seating is perfect for solo diners, while the leafy courtyard is a fun spot for a see-and-be-seen Sunday brunch, featuring bottomless bellinis and mimosas for just $16.
