Best Dim Sum -- Shanghai Cafe on Mott Street.

Best Italians are Il Giglio and Il Mulino, but they are budget busters.

Chinese - Excellent Dumpling on Lafayette just south of Canal.

Italian - I have no idea. I've been to a number of good ones in little Italy, but I can't remember their names.

69 Bayard is definitely better than Wo Hop, and for Italian try Grotto Azzurra

+1 for Vincent's

P.S. Oops. I didn't catch this,but isn't Vincent's at Hester and Mott - just around the corner from Umberto's???

Isnt that NY Noodle Town, or did they change their name? I havent been there is a while. Very good restaurant. Was there with a friend a while ago, and he ordered the duck web, which is boneless duck feet. The waiter didnt want to give it to him, and said he should order something else. My friend insisted, and liked the dish very much. I guess they didnt think a white guy would like the authentic stuff?

As long as we're straying outside our original boundries I recommend the following on the upper west side.

Sambuca

Carmines

There are two good chinese places on Amsterdam Ave. One at 77st, and the other at 82st. Once again I can't remember their names.

Im with Mag on Piccolo , and I have friends who own places in little italy, I dont go there , period. I will also say that Manducatis ( spelling is wrong ) in Long Island City is awesome for italian, you would never know if from looking at it from outside. Try the osso bucco, if you call the day before they will go and pick the veal personally for your meal. If you are at Piccolo try the lamb osso bucco ! Cant go wrong !

Ok...
Don't make fun of me for this one...
but Big Wong on Mott st is good too.
I like wonton garden only for the wonton's obviously...
but i like big wong for all their BBQ Meats.
As for noodle town that's good too when everyone else is closed

as for italian.
+1 for Lombardi's
+1 for Carmine's / Sambucco's.
THere's also another family style rest in times sq which is REALLY good and doesn't have the wait like carmines does...caleld Tony D (something)

IF your looking at ferrar's on Grand st...
I would also recommend looking at veniero's

Forlini's - 93 Baxter in Tribeca area.

My Father thought it was only beaten by Cunetto House of Pasta in St. Louis.
