We went on an offer, 3 courses for £29. Good value. Lovely food, exquisitely presented. Very attentive and knowledgeable service. The restaurant itself is dull and bland, with no eye catching features.

Our hotel suggested the restaurant and we were a bit hesitant when we got there, as it seemed very modern and upscale for the simple late nite dinner we wanted. However from the friendly hostess to the various members of the wait staff we came...More

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.
