Dell’anima is one of my favorite Italian restaurant in NYC. Decor and atmosphere are nothing spacial yet cozy and really great Toscan Italian food. I sometime visit their sister restaurants, L’artusi in West Village and L’apicio in East Village but Dell’anima is still my favorite of those three restaurants. Dell’Anima is known for their pasta dishes but I never care for them. My top three dishes are CHARRED OCTOPUS rice beans, chorizo, chicories / BRANZINO IN CARTOCCIO confit potatoes, cerignola olives, citrus / SWEETBREADS rhubarb, orange, apple. Also I highly recommend sitting at the counter right in front of the kitchen to see chef Elwood and his team in action.
