Opened in October 2007 in the heart of New York City’s West Village, dell’anima means “of the soul” in Italian and features hearty, eloquent dishes of thoughtful simplicity. Our menu offerings change daily and we use local, seasonal, and sustainably harvested produce where possible.

Executive Chef Andrew Whitney's menu features a selection of pastas made fresh in house every day, traditional dishes rarely found outside of Italy, and his own Italian-inspired creations.

Our wine list features an array of small production, high-quality selections with an emphasis on traditional and natural winemaking. Over 150 hand-chosen wines are selected for flavor, uniqueness and tradition. Every bottle is kept in our temperature-controlled cellar and expertly poured into hand-blown crystal glasses from Milan.

dell’anima can accommodate up to 50 guests, and six lucky people may sit at the Chef’s Counter, which provides a commanding view of the open kitchen. Bar seats are available for walk-ins, where you can enjoy a glass of wine, a cocktail, or eat a whole meal. The Chef’s Counter may be reserved by phone or in person for groups of up to six people.
