Marcony is magnificent

Last night we walked down Lex to Marcony, a restauarant we've been meaning to try for years. I asked the host if we were underdressed since I was wearing shorts, t shirt and sandals but he said, "no problem."
At 8:30 there was a very nice crowd there but we were seated quickly. The restaurant is a duplex with more space than it seems.
First of all the host and servers were friendly and professional which adds so much to the dining experience.
We did not want to fill up with the tasty bread and dip which were hard to resist.
Two fabulous salads, mine being a special with fresh figs stuffed with gorgonzola and wrapped with proscitto.
For entrees we ordered two pasta specials: Lobster, shrimp and clam fra diavolo with linguini and truffle fettucini with truffle shavings. Both perfectly prepared along with a side of broccoili rabe.
It's a bit pricey but not over the top. A good value for a semi upscale neighborhod place.
The fra diavolo sauce was excetional. Am I repeating myself?
