Great start to our NYC trip!It was our 1st night in NYC and we arrived for a late dinner (8:30 reservation) and had to wait about 15 - 20 minutes for our table. The staff apologized more than once for the delay and offered a complimentary beverage for our inconvenience. We considered leaving, but it smelled so good, we decided to stay and were glad we did. Everything we ordered was absolutely divine. We started with bruschetta appetizers (avocado & roasted red pepper) and arugula salad. We also ordered 4 different pasta plates and they were all tasty but spicy! I especially enjoyed the carbonara. We shared dessert (rum cake w/ sea salt gelato) which was a wonderful ending to our delicious meal. Already recommended this to a foodie friend who visits NYC often!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMvery consistant. always goodvery consistant. always good food. brunch can be loud w music in the back side of restaurant.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent italian foodThe food was AMAZING, the server was very nice but scarcely available, the bussers were wonderful ALWAYS on it.

It was a bit smoky inside, but the food was delicious.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWould go back any dayI am in love with this restaurant. For appetizers, we started off with the charred octopus. Then we moved our way into two pasta dishes (the tagliatelle bolognese and cacio pepe). For the main, we shared the branzino, and closed the meal with a chocolate gianduja crostata as dessert. Everything was delicious, but the tagliatelle bolognese was extraordinary. If I had a criticism (and not that I do) but if I had to give one, it would be that this dish was too small. It was so delicious I wanted more! I could eat 3 of those things and still crave for more. It was that good.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMseemed like there was onlyseemed like there was only a waitstaff of one...

Loved the bruschette.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMwas a little skeptical whenwas a little skeptical when first walking in to find it so tiny and tables tightly packed, but the incredible service, food and wine more than made up for any initial hesitation. can't wait to come back for the incredible pastas. wanted to try everything on the menu so will have to return soon. our waitress was knowledgable and helpful with the wine selection, and service was paced just right--didn't feel rushed, but no lengthy waits between courses.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA great west village find!Love this place ! The food is really fantastic ! I have eaten here on 5 occasions and have never been disappointed. Each dish is a masterpiece in it's own right!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been here a few timesI've been here a few times on dates and friend dates. It's cozy, dim, tables are really close together, but the overall noise level drowns out specific conversations, lending an element of privacy and intimacy. Great seasonal menu with plenty of options. The service is always incredibly friendly without being patronizing or annoying. I loved the wine our server recommended, she was cool.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful experienceI loved everything about Dell'Anima. Excellent food and service, at a great price. I will be back soon!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMTight, But Always Reliabledell'anima always has terrific food and great service. I always love the grilled octopus to start and the tagliatelle bolognese for my entree. The service is kind and dependable, and they're are always great at pairing their wines with my meals. It always feels a little tight in there (it's hard to sit as a threesome), and it can get a little warm and smoky given the open set-up of the kitchen, but the overall experience is always wonderful.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMJust a little too noisy, otherwiseJust a little too noisy, otherwise a great experience!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSmall, crowded, noisy, butSmall, crowded, noisy, but the food is just wonderful and the service was terrific!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDell'anima has become oneDell'anima has become one of my favorite spots in the downtown area of the city.
