Anella is a great neighborhood spot. The vibe, the wine, the food-- it all works. The bread in the flowerpot with the salted butter is reason enough to visit.

Cozy little spot, the photo doesn’t do it justice. Food and service are amazing. The food is phenomenal, and the craft drinks amazing. If you are in the area, def go visit. Be sure to make a resv! Waits were up to an hour at one point for those without one. Great brunch, lunch and dinner!

Cool neighborhood. Cool atmosphere. Good service. Good food. Anella was exactly as advertised. We loved it. There's so many restaurants to check out in Greenpoint, but we'd go back to Anella in a heartbeat.

Great brunch and the fried chicken biscuit with honey jalepeno and slaw was good but I would have loved to have more of the honey jalepeno flavor. That was too subtle if at all. Otherwise very yummy and highly recommended.

I had brunch here with two friends who were celebrating their birthdays. The food was delicious, the garden was really nice, and the service was as close to perfect as you could ask for. The servers have figured out how to be perfectly attentive without being annoying--they're there when you need them, and don't intrude when you don't. My only complaint is that the music is played a little loudly, so you have to talk over it. But, I highly recommend it and really enjoyed our meal.

Excellent food with a selected menu that clearly puts an emphasis on seasonal and local. Salads were very fresh! Good tea selection, friendly and speedy service! On a beautiful day we sat in the garden and enjoyed it immensely!

Our trip to Brooklyn isn't complete until we've eaten at Anellas. Never disappointed in any aspect of our meal. Knowledgeable staff, congenial but not too nosey. Authentic neighborhood ambience. Frank was especially cool.

My fiance and I moved to Greenpoint a few months ago and have been enjoying trying all the local spots. We needed to discuss some wedding plans, which is always best over a nice meal, so we yelp-ed and found Anella was right down the block. What a pleasant surprise. Waitress was amazing, super sweet and knowledgeable. There was no rush once we sat. If I had to say one thing that may get to people is that the tables are small and close together, but it didn't bother us at all. Can't wait to go back!

This was my third time at Anella and all three of us were blown away by the food and the service. It's a relatively small restaurant, but we were able to get a last minute reservation on a Saturday night. Their pasta and seafood seem to be particular favorites, but we had several vegetable dishes as well and they were excellent. Definitely a neighborhood gem!

Although food is tasty, portions are small and overpriced. There seemed to be an issue with the kitchen since it took over 40 minutes for our entrees to come out.

I love this place. It has a charming, romantic vibe and a great selection of handmade cocktails. Good wine list. The pasta is amazing and I always love the little fresh bread they serve baked in tiny flowerpot. Super nice sitting outside in the garden during the summer. Great spot for a date or a nice dinner with a friend.
