    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.

    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.

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

    julia t · November 28, 2014
  • Nicolette R.

    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

    Steve Schuler · October 16, 2014
  • Meagan K.

    Fantastic Bronzino and beet salad.

    Meagan Kirkpatrick · September 6, 2014
  • ℰℓenaᶳᵘ²

    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.

    ℰℓenaᶳᵘ² · September 5, 2014
  • Jasmine M.

    Sit at the bar, order a negroni, some dips with crostini, split the tart endive salad and get the carbonara.

    Jasmine Moy · September 5, 2014
  • William H.

    Pricey for such tiny plates, but they're filling. Try the risotto or the bolognese.

    William H · August 26, 2014
  • Stork

    Charred octopus. Wild striped bass. Any pasta.

    Stork · August 12, 2014
  • What's Good Here

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

    What's Good Here · August 8, 2014
  • Alyssa C.

    Everything is outstanding, try the bruschetta [spreads] and bone marrow

    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

    Get the charred octopus.

    Will Jessop · July 23, 2014

    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.

    Noah Weiss · June 29, 2014
  • sam r.

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

    sam rosen · May 20, 2014
  • Michael M.

    Fantastic brunch, particularly the fruit salad and the baked eggs dish

    Michael Muse · March 21, 2014
  • Abigail R.

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

    Abigail R · March 13, 2014
  • Matthew P.

    Place is DANK!!! Mama Mia!!!!! Get the octopus for sure!

    Matthew Paul · February 19, 2014
  • The Corcoran Group

    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.

    Absolutely amazing Italian restaurant. Make sure you make reservations for seats at the chefs bar.

    Tae Kim · December 21, 2013
  • Alberto M.

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

    Alberto Mann · December 21, 2013
  • Aileen T.

    get the duck and octopus!
