Round the corner from high-flying L'Anima, this more casual younger sibling is the perfect pit stop for those who find themselves in Shoreditch at any time of the day. "State-of-the-art" modern-chic interiors set the tone, so watch the world go by at breakfast or pop in for a southern Italian deli lunch of octopus and polenta or lemony spaghetti vongole to go. Come evening, City punters jostle for space at the buzzing 360-degree bar: lucky patrons kick back on large, leather sofas, settling in for all-Italian aperitivi and a large glass of Rioja, before taking the plunge with a soul-nourishing dinner of beef tagliata, veal milanese or a good old pizza. "Swift, polite service" is exactly what's needed, and you can recreate that 'just like mamma makes' feeling at home by picking up some Italian provisions from L'Anima's well-stocked shop.

This is a more informal setting with all day dining...

L'Anima Cafe is the less formal little sister of the award-winning L'Anima restaurant - serving Southern Italian food that lives up to the meaning of the restaurant's name. L'Anima is the Italian word for soul and the food is authentic and rustic; you can tell that the chefs really put their heart into creating the dishes.The Aperol Spitz above is the fashionable drink this summer and the popular Italian aperitif is the perfect way to start a dinner now that the sun's out on London. And a few flat bread pizza make the ideal accompaniment...

When I heard that L’anima Café was opening (a small more intimate version of L’anima), I of course booked a table as quickly as I could (regardless of the fact that I was already eating out 6 times that week). I guess the gym would have to wait another week…there were far more important things on my mind.We were greeted by a friendly and polite front of house and shown to our table. The café space is large with a bar and mini clay oven station for pizza cooking located on one side of the room and dining tables on the other...
