Translated as 'soul' in Italian, award-winning L'Anima is true to its name, specialising in authentic, honest Italian cuisine made with all the passion of chefs with Italian cooking in their blood. 

Bordering the City and Shoreditch, L'Anima was designed by famed architect Claudio Silvestrin. The open and inviting space boasts clean-cut, modern furnishing - a design that reflects the understated sophistication and quality of our seasonally-changing menu. 

Our Southern-influenced cuisine reinterprets dishes from Sardinia, Puglia and Sicily. Meanwhile, our award winning wines champion environmentally friendly producers from less well-known regions of Calabria, Lombardy and Emilia Romagna.
