First let me say that I'm not a) a cheap-o when it comes to eating and b) I am not one of those people that needs 6 pounds of food on my plate in order to feel like it was a good portion. The food was okay. My Endive salad was fantastic. And I was REALLY excited for the Agnolotti. It arrived at the table and as soon as the waiter left, my friend and I both said out loud "that's it?!" For $17 dollars I expected a bit more on the plate. I think there were about 10 on my plate (and if you know agnolotti, that is not a lot). It was very good, the sauce was delicious and the pasta delicate. But if you're looking to spend your money wisely in this economy climate...I'd say go somewhere else.

Yes, it's small but the crowd is attactive, the service friendly and the food superior. A standout on our visit was cod over bean cake and fennel, topped with grapefruit sections outstanding. This is a quintessential West Village place: cozy, hip, pricey, but in our opion worth it. We'll be back.

I ate here last night after numerous friends had asked me to try. With very high expectations I came out a bit disappointed. I was with a group of four and had just about everything on the menu. Polenta with Boar was good not great, grilled octopus was sub par,salad was salad, and sweet breads were innovative and quite decadent. Then we had the squash agnolotti which were overcooked but had a decent sauce and the risotto was quite good. Entrees were also subpar, I had the pork chop and the girls had the halibut which were both under seasoned and unmemorable. Overall decent dinner but would def recommend elsewhere.

This place is amazing. The food is amongst the best in the city that I have had. The bruschetta is awesome, and the pastas are incredible as well. The salads are okay, I wouldn't go to Dell'Anima for those. Putting things over the top was the atmosphere. Such a cool vibe in the restaurant. A true west village feel.

I dined here last evening. First off the place is very tiny, cramped and loud. So we opted for outdoor seating in which my date had to face a wall. The menu is totally limited. The octopus appetizer was ok but nothing amazing compared to greek and other italian places. Was craving some seafood. Only option was wreckfish..Still wondering what that is. My date wanted a steak in which they did not have that either. He opted for bruschetta which was soaked in oil as app and rigatoni bolognese which was tiny portion. Only two sides on the menu to choose from which is totally ridiculous. I asked if they can grill up some eggplant and the chef could not do it. Overall, this place is not worth the money or the time. I would never go back!!!

took my wife for her birthday last week. we were both impressed with our choices: octopus, bruchetta, pasta and chicken Fra Diavlo. I do agree with some of the other posters that the service is genuine but the food is very oversalted. i woke up all bloated the next day. Deserts were good but unremarkable. Great cocktail and wine list.

I love Dell' Anima. I have frequented many many restaurants in they city and this is by far my favorite. Amazing food....amazing wine (with a somelier and bartender with great taste)...amazing people working there. Everyone is so friendly and it feels like a home away from home. If you haven't gone yet...you must go. You will not regret it.
