Fodor's Review

Diners used to flood into this hot spot for the blistery thin-crust Neapolitan pizza, but these days it's the pasta that holds attention. The grand experience here is the seven-course pasta-tasting menu (extra for wine pairings). The homemade mustard tagliatelle with smoked lamb's tongue is surprisingly zippy, with lemon zest lifting and extracting flavors. A whimsical interior includes tabletop beakers as candleholders, a moth-wing wall mural, and a cabinet of taxidermy in the bathroom. Expect a noisy, boisterous scene. Trying to get a reservation at Flour + Water is one of the longest-running jokes in town. Your best bet is to come when the doors open.
