Best Pasta Fajol on the planet. Chicken Parm was really good. For dessert you can never go wrong with a tartufo. However I did not see Joe F.

The food here was the best I ever had, it outshines all the Italian food I had in Little Italy, including reknowed Angelos. Pleasant surroundings and very nice people. Good service. I will be returning.

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
