Best Pizza in Chelsea

I've become very fond of Bella Napoli on 7th and 25th lately, nice thin crust. I'll second Maffei's too, one of the last few family run places. Their regular slice is on the big and cheesy side, which is not a bad thing, but the grandma's is great.

Pinkberry frozen yogurt [moved from Manhattan board]

I had one for the first time yesterday and I have to say I'm addicted! I was nervous after reading all the complaints of it being too icy, but I really liked the consistency. It tasted likke it should taste; like frozen non-fat yogurt, not yogurt-based ice cream. I had a medium regular with blackberries, raspberries and pineapple and was ready for more when I hit the bottom. It's really refreshing and the tangyness of the yogurt mixed with the tangyness and juiceyness and sweetness of the fruit was perfect. The manager said the Chelsea one should be open in about a month.

Any ideas where to get some good authentic ribollita in the city? I had it for the first time on my last trip to Florence last June, and I've been dreaming about it since. The cool weather's been making me crave it more so!

Soup Dumplings in Chinatown

Shanghai Cafe has soup dumplings just as good as Joe's, but with much nicer atmosphere. The prices are pretty good too. I also love the noodles with meat sauce there. Tasty and filling for only $3.50! Awesome green tea smoothies too.
