L'Anima Café 1

Squaremeal Review of L'Anima Café ?

Clean-lined, spacious and decidedly modern-chic, this casual sibling of high-flying L’Anima sits just around the corner from its more grown-up sibling. It’s the perfect pit stop for breakfast, a daytime snack, lunch or a light supper, with the bonus of watching the City go by through its big glass windows. You can pop in for an early pick-me-up or grab a bite to go from the adjoining deli (a sandwich or salad, say). After work, the office brigade packs the impressive 360-degree bar, while the lucky few kick back on leather sofas with plates of calamari fritti, spatchcock baby chicken with lemon and chilli or grilled salmon with celeriac mash and salsa verde – plus pizzas and pasta. Service is swift and prices are reasonable – and you can stock up on provisions from the L’Anima shop, if you’re in the mood for cooking.

L'Anima restaurant,bar and cafe occupy a vast base of a tower office around Snowden Street,at firts I mistakenly went to the restaurant very clean spacious and modern and was politely shown the menu and helped to find the adjacent cafe round the corner. I had been expecting with the name cafe a dingy place with old wooden tratoria type tables but was delightfully surprised to encounter a state of the art modern chic extremly spacious design interior very comfortable and a quarter full at the...

2 friends and I had lunch at the L'anima Cafe on Wednesday 23 July 2014, (the Cafe only opened on the Monday). The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, we met Francesco and Luca – awesome! The service was excellent and the food and drinks were out of this world. The menu is mouthwatering and very good value for money. The ambience is marvellous, with nice tables and comfy sofas – an ideal venue whether you wish coffee and cake, drinks or a full meal. The Deli converts to a private dining room...

    Review of Blacklock, Soho :: L'Anima Cafe, Liverpool Street

    I can find working in the city a bit souless at times, especially when it comes to restaurants. There are a couple of great ones (for example City Social, Duck and Waffle and Goodmans) but they are definitely on the treat yo’self list, unless work is paying! I personally think there is a lack of interesting places to venture to for lunch. That’s why I’m happy I have L’Anima Cafe just within reach of my office. Being based at Bank it’s a good 15 minute walk, but oh so worth it.

    L’Anima Cafe is the sister to the award winning L’Anima just around the corner. This is a more informal setting with all day dining...

    SilverSpoon London :: SilverSpoon London - A luxury lifestyle and travel blog : L'Anima Cafe: Italian Soul Food

    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...

    POP-UPS & PUCCI :: Southern Italy comes to the city - Pop-ups & Pucci

    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...
