L'Anima (London)

Is this restaurant still as good as I was told it was about a year ago? I did some searching on this board but did not come up with much. That sort of tells me something. We're from the US and hope to be going to London in the fall. Thank you.

    Having never been to L'Anima, I can't really comment but I think with the advent of new and really great Italian restaurants (Zucca, Trullo, Tinello) which are a fraction of the price, L'Anima has gone off the boil a bit.

      Thank you hollow_legs. By your answer and the lack of responses, I assume L'Anima is not as hot as it once was.

      Good question! This place was amazing in terms of food, service and environment when I went in September 2009 having been back there recently over Christmas 2010, the place had lost a lot of its charm.

      The food was still amazing, and the decor equally grand. But on this second visit the service was massively lacking, possibly due to the fact they had squeezed us in on a last minute reservation while focusing purely on the corporate event they were hosting that night.

      Understandable at some places but at this price point, terrible. I won't be going back.
