My daughter & I went here after our "Downtown Walking" tour on the recommendation of our tour guide. We were a little skeptical since it is more in Chinatown than Little Italy. We were seated right away & served our drinks. We both got soup & salad since this was a late lunch. Salad was good, but soup just ok. Definitely an older establishment, but well known. Jim Burr (college basketball ref) was sitting at the next table. I probably would go again just to give it another shot since it comes highly recommended from the locals.
