    I really think Vice Versa would be the perfect compromise for you and BF.
    You'll really enjoy it.

      I enjoy ViceVersa-it's on my regular rotation for pre-theater-I like the pasta and risotto...but I don't think it's right for a "special romantic" evening...and it's not exactly gourmet. Can't speak to Bruno.
      I'd suggest instead looking at L'Impero.

        yes, definitely nothing special, just normal enjoyable. not bad not great: not memorable.

          i went to vice versa for the first time last week and it is fine. I mean, it is Good, not extraordinary and not cheap, but food was well cooked and I enjoyed it. I recommend it, yes.
