I highly recommend the Charred Octopus, the Ouva Purgatorio, the Tagliatelle Bolognese and the Pollo Al Diavolo. Everything was delicious. Service was very quick and attentive. Prices are reasonable.

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.

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.

The pasta with mushrooms was fabulous. And the skirt steak was perfect too.

Because of the size, and the limited number of tables, I highly recommend that you make reservations.The food is unique and fantastic. Try octopus, bucatini,crostini & cocktails are top notch as well.

Dark chocolate pistachio tart is to die for. Start with charred octopus for sure.

Dishes were all delicious, fav was the carbonara and scallops crudo. For dessert, the rum cake with salted gelato is a must!

The 'Negroni sbagliato' ("wrong Negroni" in Italian) uses sparkling wine instead of gin. It's delicious. The regular negroni is no slouch either.

The octopus appetizer. So good, I order two for dinner every time! Best in the city.
