Roberto Passon or ViceVersa

Taking 4 out-of towners out to an early dinner tomorrow and have narrowed it down to these two Italians. Any strong votes for one or the other, one more consistent or better recently?

      Definitely ViceVersa over Roberto. I've been to both, ViceVersa is much much better.

        We were not impressed with any of the dishes that we had, augmented by the boring wine list (imho), during our lone dinner at Roberto Passon a month ago.

        Never been ot Vice Versa.

          I am prejudiced -- Vice Versa is my favorite non-upscale restaurant in Manhattan.
          We have taken visiting friends there constantly and always hear the same refrain from them when I ask where they'd like to try when they return -- Vice Versa has always been the answer.
          I am doing my first turn at Roberto Passon over the Christmas holidays so I guess I will find out for myself which is the better choice.

          ViceVersa, by far.
