Italian restaurant in the theater district

I am looking for a pretheatre dinner before going to see Mamma Mia (Broadway and 50th). I am strongly considering Vice Versa. Anyone like this suggestion or have a better one?

  1. I've never been to Vice Versa but have tried Insieme a couple of times and it's really very good. Plus it's right across the street from your theater.

    1. Trattoria Trecolori, on 47th St., b/t B'way & 8th Av., is a favorite of mine and many other Hounds. Delicious homestyle fare served by a friendly, efficient staff in a large space with attractive decor and tables set comfortably apart.

      (I have not been to ViceVersa, but lots of Hounds like it.)

      1. I would choose Vice Versa or Orso. Both have interesting food, desserts at Vice are more creative, Vice has a more plush feeling, but Orso has a lively buzz, particularly after theater when many celebrities eat there.

        1. I recently enjoyed a pre -theater dinner at La rivista on 46 th street. Food was tasty and atmosphere was agreeably old - fashioned.

          La Rivista
          313 West 46th Street, New York, NY 10036

          1. How about Esca? Second: Lattanza. Third: Becco.
