dell'anima means "of the soul," which clearly defines the soul satisfying, flavorful, rustic Italian cooking offered here. The wine list is entirely Italian and emphasizes small producers and to a large extent organic, biodynamic, and natural wines.
Grilled octupus, bone marrow, pasta
One of the few select places that makes NY great. You MUST try the CARBONARA and the ESPRESSO-RUM ALMOND CAKE. Great service and friendly staff. I absolutely recommend.
Pork chop with a beautifully browned exterior and edge to edge perfectly cooked interior. Very juicy and tasty.
It's noisy and crowded so don't expect to have a quiet conversation here. If you don't mind that, good date spot.
walk-in and get the chef's counter. it's the best seat in the house. wait is ranges 0 - 60 mins
Charred Octopus and Scallops are delicious.
Delicious delicious Italian food and drinks
Food and atmosphere are excellent.
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 orecchiette is great!
Uovo Funghi is a must. Cheddar polenta. Poached eggs, mushrooms and toast!
the homemade pasta is incredible
Pasta was good, albeit the small portions
it's grate place! yum yum)
Branzino and garganelli... Nom nom nom 💕
The bone marrow appetizer and carbonara are not to be missed!
Best pasta ever!
Great date spot, fills up quickly. Order some shared plates - octopus is grilled perfectly.
Pastas are phenomenal. Less sceney than it's sibling, L'Artusi
Great pasta, can't go wrong with any of them. Sides are great too, nice wine list. Try to sit at the chef's counter to be in the action
Love the vibe of this place. Definitely sit at the chef's counter, get a bottle of wine and order any or all of the pasta!
Bucatini arrabiata, eggs in purgatorio
I love dell'anima! Cute, great ricotta with the bread at lunch, and a romantic spot for quality pastas at dinner.
I know chicken can be boring, but the pollo al diavolo is most definitely not! The carbonara was great, but the chicken is the way to go!
Two words: the rissoto
JMac TC ANGELO & david best restaurant in NY
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
Fantastic Bronzino and beet salad.
Because of the size, and the limited number of tables, I highly recommend that you make reservations.The food is unique and fantastic. Try octopus, bucatini,crostini & cocktails are top notch as well.
Sit at the bar, order a negroni, some dips with crostini, split the tart endive salad and get the carbonara.
Pricey for such tiny plates, but they're filling. Try the risotto or the bolognese.
Charred octopus. Wild striped bass. Any pasta.
Be sure to get the charred octopus (rice beans, chorizo, chicories) as a starter. Highly recommended.
Everything is outstanding, try the bruschetta [spreads] and bone marrow
Get the charred octopus.
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.
If you want something simple, they'll make a plain pasta with olive oil and cracked pepper. It was delicious (and great for vegans)
Fantastic brunch, particularly the fruit salad and the baked eggs dish
Amazing little gem - it never fails. Pastas and risottos are the star here. Also the olive oil cake with sea salt ice cream.
Place is DANK!!! Mama Mia!!!!! Get the octopus for sure!
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.
must get the duck! but it does have a very fatty skin
Absolutely amazing Italian restaurant. Make sure you make reservations for seats at the chefs bar.
Great sweetbreads. Risotto is not risotto - more like Italian fried rice with sausage but still quite good.
get the duck and octopus!
