Food is always great service is good. Parking can be a bit of a problem but worth the time to find a spot
Such an improvement since pur last visit. Great food and service was so friendly. Thank you Nicole.
Nice, glad we found a good neighborhood Italian restaurant.
If you like real Italian food then Ancora, owned and operated by real Italians, is the place. It will fast become a favorite. Enjoy!!!
Our group of 2 couples thoroughly enjoyed our food. this neighborhood restaurant is convenient and has parking.
Always a great meal at Ancora. Family favorite for many years.
Consistently wonderful dining experience - We've never had a bad meal here and enjoy the casual, local feeling the restaurant provides. Outstanding!
My wife and I are always looking for good places to eat in the Valley, but they are few and far between. I saw so many good reviews on this restaurant that I had to give it a try. It lived up to the hype. Great neighborhood Italian spot with excellent food and a terrific staff. Our waitress was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and made us feel right at home. Wish we could have talked to her more. We will definitely be back.
Great pastas and fish. Gluten free pasta available as well
Service was spot on and prices were fair for large portions.
Authentic Italian family neighborhood restaurant ! So glad I I made Open table reservations on a Saturday night, it was very busy and they turned away many walkins. The food is special in every way, plan on having you paste Al Dente. The specials are the favorites from years of experience. They will make special requests but why be that person, everything they make is special.
Excellent on every level. Great neighborhood place which caters to the customer
We came for Valentine’s Day dinner. The ambiance is great, the service is always fantastic and the food is second to none. Adrian is a fantastic server and the owners make you feel right at home.
We were here over a year ago and liked it much more. Food was not good this time. Lava cake was stale and tasted like cardboard. Entrees were ho-hum. Really sad to see this as owner and server are nice people. Server was only one we saw taking care of entire place along with owner... won’t return.
They where very busy, but the service was still great and the food was as great as ever
Always a fantastic meal!
Good alternative to Adagio. The main shortcoming of this restaurant is parking. Noise level when busy is high. No booths.
The owners and wait staff always treat you like family. Never had a meal that wasn't superb.
Took girl friend for lunch today and both had different chicken dishes! Delicious and shared mushroom siup🎉. The owner brought us terramissou (so) for her birthday surprise which was greatly appreciated!
Quiet and relaxing afternoon today!
Love Ancora!!! Our neighborhood gem!
Food is excellent
Especially garlic and oil pasta theirs is the best
First time. Can’t wait to go back. Everything tasted amazing and we wanted to try more good looking dishes at other tables.
We were sat at a terrible table and when we asked to move to owner told us those tables were for people with reservations. Um, ok. Service was slow and the food was lukewarm when it was served. Will not be returning.
Wonderful service. Food was excellent
The best italian food in the valley. Great service and the waiters are the best.
Always delicious! Reliable, warm and cozy too! This has become a regular for good all fashion Italian food. The owner and servers couldn’t be nicer and more accommodating.
Have dined in this restaurant for over 30 years and love Fabrizio. Food is always good. Excellent chicken and fish dishes as well as a variety of pastas and salads. See you again soon.
Wonderful atmosphere, fantastic food and impeccable service. Our waitress Nicole was awesome. If you haven’t tried Ancora, what are you waiting for?
Met a friend for a planning meeting lunch here a week ago. We spent three hours and the staff were fantastic, always attentive, never intrusive. It is a lovely cucina in an unassuming spot, and there is some limited parking in back.
Now, for the food: I have been to Italy and while I am no expert, long for the dining experiences I enjoyed there. I was so pleased with the experience that I plan on making this my new "special spot" for friend and family gatherings. The pizze is wonderful, the salads are lovely, and I am looking forward to enjoying the home made pasta on my next visit. Do not miss this experience!!!!
Always excellent! Very friendly staff, clean and delicious food. Love this place!
Ancora Cucina (which we still refer to as La Finestra) is our favorite Italian restaurant - period!
We have been dining here for more than 25 years and with Fabrizio and Salvatore at the helm it is a magical destination. The food and fare are unmatched and the friendly atmosphere and energy warms the soul. If you are looking for authentic Italian cuisine - look no further. Ancora Cucina is the very best - from their antipasti, insulate, zuppe, pasta, pizza to their main dishes - delicious!!
Never have had a bad meal. The owners and wait staff are very attentive to the customers needs
My first time visiting Ancora was wonderful! The food was absolutely delicious — all five of us finished our dishes. Everything from the pastas to seafood and sauces tasted great. Quality food for a reasonable price (not cheap, but also not an arm and a leg). The only thing is I wish there was more space for groups; I felt a bit uncomfortable sitting on the side of our table. I also understand that it was a busy night (on a Wednesday!) but our served could have been more attentive. Overall, though, this place exceeded my expectations. My mom can’t stop telling people about it! I just want some more gnocchi.
The food was excellent and the service was also excellent.
My wife and I were recommended to the Ancora and found that the food was delicious and the service great. The staff were friendly and remembered us by name. Their wine was not great but acceptable, and the prices are within reason. I have told them and you that this restaurant is my favorite. My only complaint is the noise level is too high for us and takes away from the pleasure of eating there. Their parking space is small, for only about 8 cars; but we get there early and beat the crowd so we do not have to street park which is usually difficult as there are other restaurants in the area.
We love Ancora. We have been here several times and are never disappointed. We LOVE their chicken parmesan. Its one of the best in the Valley. We just had 14 teens there for my daughter's birthday and they all loved it.
We came here to celebrate my birthday. We had been here before for our anniversary and both times the food was delicious. Our waiter Jaime was wonderful and even gave us the history of the restaurant. All the pastas and desserts are homemade. I had a special of the night - seabass with artichokes and tomatoes served with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables. Everything was very good. My husband had a wonderful veal topped with eggplant and mozzarella cheese in a light creamy tomato sauce with homemade ziti which was really good. For my birthday they gave us a slice of their homemade cheesecake which was delicious and oh so creamy. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone that enjoys good Italian cuisine in a lovely atmosphere.
Wonderful meal. Everything was absolutely delicious. Our service person was friendly and very nice. Overall experience was great. Will be back.
