SquareMeal Review of
With its snazzy tables, brown-leather barstools, and spritzer-sipping, sharp-suited customers, L’Anima’s overtly swish bar feels like Italy on a hot summer’s day. There are plenty of pre-dinner
cocktail tempters on offer, including a host of Bellinis and some fruity, Italian-themed mixes – although wine buffs might prefer to browse the extended list, which features a dozen or so
French regional names alongside the entrenched Italians. Around 15 are available by the glass or 500ml carafe, with some seriously impressive producers such as Alois Lageder & Franz Haas
stealing the show. Even if the starry restaurant is full, the entire menu is still offered in the bar, so you don’t need to miss out on trademark Antonio Favuzzi dishes such as a summer vegetables with hummus or handmade fettuccine with summer truffle – perfect with a refreshing bottle of malty Menebrea Italian beer.
