The pasta are great made and the texture is amazing. i tried the Uni pasta, once again, pasta is great, but the sauce and combination taste isn't as amazing as those i tried elsewhere. The chicken is very well made.

Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set
amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron
District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd
Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building,

Not formal but don't go there like a total hippie. The clients are very respectable and classy. I wouldn't suggest shorts and tan top even in summer.
