Description: An award-winning Italian restaurant in the City, L'Anima offers modern Italian cuisine in an effortlessly elegant setting. Serenity prevails in the dining room, with a muted earthy colour palette and swatches of plush white leather offset by glistening floor-to-ceiling glass. Using premium ingredients to craft simple yet bold flavours, head chef Lello's menu takes influence from Sardinia, Puglia and Sicily, while the L'Anima bar offers boutique Italian wines and famous aperitifs.

Two signature dishes, the octopus salad to start and black beef for main. Both arrived looking stunning, both has clever use of cheese: grilled with the octopus and blue with the beef. In each case you want to take small bites to make the experience last as long as possible. My guest had the scallops which were beautiful and tuna steak for main, both perfectly presented and cooked. Atmosphere: cool white interior with big windows and crisp tables set off the food perfectly. Service and sommelier were excellent. The sort of place you will find excuses to come back to. About £80 per head.

Modern and large restaurant for business lunch and dinner well situated in the middle of London city. Large choice of Italian plates prepared following the traditional cuisine and high quality ingredients. Please book a table before going. Budget per person in the range of 50 pounds or more without wine and other drinks.

Modern ambience. Perfect service. Perfect food. Pricey but worth it. The fact that the chef is always there and comes out and greets diners confirms how well it is run. Had the asparagus to start and squid for main course. An absolute delight.

Very modern restaurant, but some good traditional italian food, a lovely balance. We received a very warm welcome from the staff who were friendly and attentive throughout the evening. Appetisers were brought with the drinks and delicious bread during the meal. The food was excellent and portion sizes were generous.

Always a good choice for a business lunch, good food, good service and a nice light atmostphere. Acoustics are not great something to bear in mind when planning where to sit. Tables on the little podium are better in this regard.
