Anima e Cuore
From the outside, Anima e Cuore looks like a gelateria and café, but this teeny tiny restaurant serves amazing Italian food at a very reasonable price. The menu is read by the waiters and changed daily. It books up very fast and it's BYOB!

What do you like about Tufnell Park?
Did you know?
"The original main route through Holloway was for driving cattle to the meat market at Smithfield. The route was in such disrepair by the late 1200s, that the Bishop of London built a new toll road that is now the route of the A1."

About Tufnell Park
Tufnell Park is an area of north London which straddles the border of the London Borough of Islington and the London Borough of Camden. Tufnell Park Road runs along the line of an old Roman road which stretches from the Roman camp beneath Barclays Bank on Holloway Road up Dartmouth Hill and over Hampstead Heath. Tufnell Park was more fortunate than several of its neighbours, whereas roads and railway lines were sliced through Kentish Town and Camden in the 19th century, they mostly passed through Tufnell Park in tunnel. The nearest London Underground station is Tufnell Park on the Northern Line.
