L'Anima Review

Top notch southern Italian cuisine in a love-it-or-loathe-it modern glass-sided shoe-box of a restaurant characterizes the breezy business-based scene here near Liverpool Street in the City. Italian chef Francesco Mazzei draws inspiration from Sicily, Puglia, Sardinia, and Calabria, and prowls the high-ceilinged bar, floor, and clear-fronted kitchen like the proud owner he is. Simple, fresh, modern, and restrained dishes like wild mushroom and black truffle tagliolini and Sardinian fish stew are near perfection, as is the wood-roasted turbot with artichoke and Calabrian sausage—as succulent as you could wish. Desserts, like liquorice zabayon wine custard, are bellissimo, and the winning wine list, naturally, is practically all Italian.
