Service lovely. Food mediocre. I had COD, hoping for great (@$32) but tough with a fairly tasteless tomato sauce

Very good Italian food within walking distance of Union Square. Lovely salads and homemade pasta with yummy sauces. Staff was friendly and helpful. Simple, good atmosphere and nice place to sit and talk. I would return!

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,
