    Fruiti di mare into squid ink pasta into the pork chop, can't miss. Italian beers are great, wine list is exceptional, cocktails out of this world. One of the best & most consistent places in NYC
  • Rodrigo N.
    I came here for brunch. Not crazy busy. Very nice staff, good service and I loved the food. The Carbonara pasta is delicious! The "purgatorio" eggs is good but its like pasta (lots os tomato sauce).

    The poached egg, polenta, & shrimp brunch special was one of the best things I've ever eaten. If it's not available, baked eggs are supposedly very similar.

    The uova funghi is a delicious brunch dish with polenta, cremini mushrooms, and poached eggs. The carbonara pasta is also great. Outdoor seating in the back now, too.

    While the pastas here are pretty much to die for (especially the Carbonara), don't pass on the duck. It's up there with one of best duck dishes we've had.

    Great date spot in the west village. Not a traditional Italian menu, but the food is superb. Try the Branzino. Perfectly prepared. One of my my favorite dishes.

    The tender braised octopus picks up a charred crisp from the grill and is just simply delicious. The rice beans, tossed with an addictive vinaigrette, make a nice accompaniment. Read more

    Start with wine & ricotta costini @Anfora. Then octopus salad, pappardelle bolognese ragu, skirt steak & side of corn. Wish someone would have provided better wine recos. Other than that = perfection!

    Grub Street off-menu dish: Ricotta Tortellini. "There's plenty of pasta on the menu, but one that's always available is this rich combo of creamy ricotta & seasonal produce such as beets or eggplant."

    Elyse EstradaAugust 3, 2012
    All the food is divine! Can't go wrong with the octopus, bass tartare starters and the Orata cooked in parchment paper with vegetables. Even the chocolate sorbet is fancy with a little hint of salt.

    What to Order: We don't have a bone to pick with anything on the menu, really. But we could make a meal out of the bruschette. Read more

    Bone marrow and carbonara are both fantastic. Love the vibe.

    Quaint but vibey (queue loud music). Food feels simple as in no frills, but then again no need to complicate homemade pasta. Scallops were excellent choice for this seafood lover

    The chicken is different than the JW chicken at Barbutto, so hard to compare, but amazing for their use of spices. Get it to share with a plate of the buccatini.

    Ricotta Tortellini: rich combination of creamy ricotta and seasonal produce (eggplants pictured here) #cachet #supersecret
  • Jo R.
    Jo RausenJuly 22, 2012
    Great pasta but I'm more than a little disappointed that my 'seasonal fruit salad' (ringing in at $10!) only consisted of melon. Mint was the only redeeming touch. (brunch)

    If you want something simple, they'll make a plain pasta with olive oil and cracked pepper. It was delicious (and great for vegans)

    Amazing little gem - it never fails. Pastas and risottos are the star here. Also the olive oil cake with sea salt ice cream.

    One of our favorite Italian spots in Manhattan. Grilled sweetbreads with parsley- root puree, soft- scrambled egg and bottarga bruschetta… simply superb. Not to mention the drinks - delicioso!
  • Antonis S.
    Antonis SkordylisJanuary 3, 2016
    Get the carbonara for sure. Even if sharing as a starter. For brunch, the breakfast plate is very well done - but the bacon disappoints.

    I love dell'anima! Cute, great ricotta with the bread at lunch, and a romantic spot for quality pastas at dinner.

    a hidden gem for brunch, if you want to avoid the waits at other places. All of the egg dishes are great. Splurge on the pasta bolognese.

    For dessert, try something out of the ordinary and get the cornbread pudding, served with a fruity fig compote and perfectly light ricotta ice cream.

    Start with the Octopus, it's simply amazing and what Dell is known for. Feeling adventurous? Then start with the sweetbreads. They melt in your mouth. Yum.

    Be sure to get the charred octopus (rice beans, chorizo, chicories) as a starter. Highly recommended.

    The 'Negroni sbagliato' ("wrong Negroni" in Italian) uses sparkling wine instead of gin. It's delicious. The regular negroni is no slouch either.

    Great sweetbreads. Risotto is not risotto - more like Italian fried rice with sausage but still quite good.

    Consider the house-made pastas ($17-$18) or the popular charred octopus with chorizo dish ($16). Read more

    Somewhat sloppy food makes this seem more like a wine bar than restaurant. While the pastas were tasty (in the $20 range) char grilled octopus ($19) was more charred than grilled. Loud, cramped space. Read more
