”[...] a brilliant artist, curious and versatile, as well as one of the most interesting realities emerged on the Italian jazz scene” (JAZZIT Magazine, #91, december 2015)

“[...] Dell'Anna shows technical mastery and reflective depth: his lively rhythmic imprint always serves a sophisticated and imaginative eloquence” (A.Leonardi, www.allaboutjazz.com)

“[...] Dell'Anna builds a piano trio able to move on different territories with agile security and takes advantage of this characteristic to look for - and, ultimately, find - a sign, energy, resilience, strength in the slow tempos, all dosed with measure and with a certain taste for contrasting flavors, the intention, that is, to always put an emphasis on what's not expected whether or not granted” (F.Ciminiera, www.jazzconvention.net)
