    Excellent Easter Eve meal with the family! Outstanding service, as usual, and the food was delicious. The Cadbury Egg crepe was a hit, too!

    Food was delicious. Plenty of meatless options for a Friday during Lent. Was not rushed at all and got out in plenty of time for a show next door.

    Ancora never disappoints.. From the moment you walk thru the door you are welcomed.. Last night was a concert night, which I didn’t know and had a pub table for 3…. Waitstaff was great.. Food was delicious as well.. Mini bottle of Prosecco on ice is a nice added touch.. Hard to review Ancora because it is one of my favorites place with consistent food, staff and atmosphere.. Great job Dan and your staff..
