About this place
Italian for "of the soul," dell'anima is everything right about the West Village. It's small, it's chic and it's filled with locals who are genuinely excited to be there. As at younger sister restaurant L'Artusi, the food at dell'anima is traditional Italian, though not predictably so. The menu keeps you on your toes with a smoked almond or two here, a little stinging nettle pesto there. Back when it opened in 2007, the buzz was about the guys from Le Bernardin and Babbo opening a new restaurant. Now the buzz is about the dell'anima team and how they just keep delivering.

Great Northern Italian cuisine with chefs table seating. Great wine selection!
If you can't snag a reservation at L'Artusi, the come here to there sister restaurant. Next best thing!
