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!
