Foursquare Tips

  • Dell'Anima is an ethical & sustainable restaurant participating in Shop Your Values Week! Pledge now and receive discounts at 200+ businesses in NYC from May 3-10, 2012. #SYVW
  • Be sure to check out Anfora, the wine bar next door. Theres definitely no holy water in their glasses!
  • 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.
  • Somewhat sloppy food makes this seem more like a wine bar than restaurant. While the pastas were tasty (in the $20 range) char grilled octopus ($19) was more charred than grilled. Loud, cramped space.
  • The poached egg, polenta, & shrimp brunch special was one of the best things I've ever eaten. If it's not available, baked eggs are supposedly very similar.
  • Fabulous brunch! Try the polenta, shrimp, poached eggs plate. It leaves an amazing sense of satisfaction on the palette.
  • Consider the house-made pastas ($17-$18) or the popular charred octopus with chorizo dish ($16).
  • The pasta with mushrooms was fabulous. And the skirt steak was perfect too.
  • Charred Octopus and Scallops are delicious.
  • Dark chocolate pistachio tart is to die for. Start with charred octopus for sure.
  • Al dente, full of flavor, and home made. Great service, beautiful interior, you definitely get what you pay for.
  • The 'Negroni sbagliato' ("wrong Negroni" in Italian) uses sparkling wine instead of gin. It's delicious. The regular negroni is no slouch either.
  • The pasta was so good.
  • The octopus appetizer. So good, I order two for dinner every time! Best in the city.
  • Start with the Octopus, it's simply amazing and what Dell is known for. Feeling adventurous? Then start with the sweetbreads. They melt in your mouth. Yum.
  • Best negroni in town. Stop by for a drink at the bar and crostinis
  • It may not be the obvious brunch order, but get the farrotto. Healthy (maybe?) and delicious.
  • If they have the pork chops on the menu, GET THEM!
  • Get the carbonara for sure. Even if sharing as a starter. For brunch, the breakfast plate is very well done - but the bacon disappoints.
  • Uovo Funghi is a must. Cheddar polenta. Poached eggs, mushrooms and toast!
