The food and service were outstanding as always. If you appreciate this restaurant as much as I do get some takeout during our collective crisis. It will help them stay open and you will get a tasty treat.
We live local and dine here several times a month, always a good meal and Tom's attention to his customers is second to none. We really like the fact that it is a BYOB
Again we had a very nice evening. Food was delicious as always, service was outstanding, and we weren't rushed. Tom is just the most warm and welcoming person. He always goes out of his way to make the evening perfect. Thank you and we'll be back again soon.
As always amazing foooood!!
Four of us for dinner. Atmosphere cozy and romantic. Food was superb. Extremely delicious. Service as exceptional. Great restaurant for date night as well as for table conversation. Thoroughly enjoyable. A real neighborhood gem.

Ancona. We have patronized this restaurant for many years and highly recommend to
Food was very good and selection wide. Service spot on and accommodating. Tom the owner was present and as always, greeted us like we were family .
We have had a few parties over the years and this a perfect restaurant for an intimate get together .
We chose Ancona because we love this restaurant and thought it would be a perfect cozy place to enjoy Christmas eve dinner with our 2 adult children. Unfortunately, we were the second seating group and had to stand and wait with many others while the first group finally finished and left. Because they had a full restaurant it took much to long to refresh the tables and prep food for our seating. We were disappointed. We realize the staff did the best they could under the circumstances, and we imagine they will take what they learned and adjust for future holidays and special events.
The owner is so warm and welcoming ever time we go, and is also willing to prepare foods and make changes to menu items when possible. I was just there with girlfriends and everything was perfect! I will continue to enjoy Ancona as one of my top choices for great food and presentation!
Wonderful service, you are treated like family. Very attentive service, fantastic food and amazing desserts!!! You will not go wrong going here!!
Good food we had salad calamari app n pasta. Friendly professional service. Good value
As always, the food and staff were excellent! Thank you!
Delicious meal as always on a quiet snowy evening.
Wonderful as always! They were very busy therefore service was a little slower than usual which suited us because we were enjoying the evening chatting with friends.
Delicious sauces and presentations, friendly service, good value BYOB. Very busy Saturday night, which the kitchen seemed to have trouble keeping up with. Worth a trip. A neighborhood gem.
We always have a great meal when we come here. The staff is very attentive and the food is very good. It’s also a plus that they offer varying specials, so even though they have their staple menu items, the menu always feels fresh. The owner is the best- always making sure things are moving quickly, but still finds the time to make everyone feel special dining here.
Good food for the price
Came on a Sunday evening. Restaurant signage was not lit so we missed it in the dark. Service was pleasant, but somewhat slow. Food was well prepared classic Italian fare. BYOB, and the people there seemed like regulars. I enjoyed the meal, but would not go out of my way to go again.
Good food for the price
Always delicious, staff attentive. For us a goto restaurant with guests!
Excellent service excellent food excellent experience always treated With top-notch service
We went to Ancona to celebrate my partner's retirement from our ambulance squad. The staff set up a table for the 9 of us in a quiet part of the restaurant. Service was outstanding, very attentive, yet not over baring. Food was service all at the same time, no one waiting, food was hot and delicious as always.
Great atmosphere good food
Great BYOB spot and affordable yet delicious Italian food! Highly recommend the Chicken Ancona. My husband enjoyed the calamari and the limoncello cake for dessert was spectacular. We went on a Friday night, it was crowded but not packed and a good volume to converse with your table without yelling over other tables. Can’t wait to go back!
We go to Ancona frequently and always have a great dinner with fine and very welcoming service.
We got to sit outside on one of our last beautiful summer evenings. The food was delicious as usual, and Tom and his staff were very welcoming as always.
Ancona has become my "go to place" for a relaxing, friendly and a most welcoming environment. The food is very good, made fresh and the pasta is homemade. The service is excellent - my husband and I feel like a part of the family. It is just not us, my friends say the same thing. It is rare to find a place such as Ancona.
We asked for outdoor seating and were quickly accommodated. We changed our minds due to the weather and again there was no problem. Food was served at proper intervals and was very tasty. Would return to this establishment
The Saturday of Labor Day weekend and we were a large group of 8. It appeared there was only one other table occupied, perhaps 2, we were t checking but it was pretty empty.
Just so so food when other times food was incredible. Service was very poor. No attempt to refil water, offer wine buckets, etc.
I would go back in hopes that it was just a bad night.
Love this new local restaurant.... whether we want a nice dinner alone or meeting friends; Tom and his staff always make it a special night. Food is delicious, fresh and well presented and if there are any special dietary restrictions, the chef is always willing to make something to please.
Delicious food and great service!
