I revisited this nice Italian restaurant after a few months and found it to be of the same high quality of food and service as before. If you are looking for consistency in quality of food and service, this is an excellent place. I had a very nice gazpacho soup and it was very tasty and refreshing before the main... More

Compares to any Italian restaurant internationally. The chef is a master. The salads and entrees are divine. Fresh fish cooked to perfection (I have never had a better grilled salmon). The service and atmosphere are perfect. Wine selection includes Armenian, French, and Italian wines.

We came here after a long day spent exploring, hoping for a quick pizza before heading for bed. What we found was not your average pizza-and-pasta place but an inventive Italian restaurant with a nice atmosphere and impressively multilingual staff. In fact, there is only a handful of pizzas on the menu, and they aren't exactly of the four-cheese or... More

It is the real place where you can have a real italian cuisine. The service and atmosphere are very calm and friendly. Nice place to have romantic evening. Also a good place to for lunch!

This restaurant was recommended by the Marriott staff, and was excellent. A heavy smoking table threatened to ruin it at the end, but fortunately they got a late start and we were nearly done before the smoke really took over the space. It's only about 10 tables, so a few smokers will do in the place pretty quickly. The food... More

Even with the smoking i am totally into this place and i can say that this place is my favorite restaurant in Yerevan. I recommend the Karas red wine for any... More

Ankyun means corner in Armenia and this excellent restaurant brings a small corner for great Italian food to Yerevan. A small and intimate place with cozy and quiet atmosphere inside. Some beautiful Italian pictures on the wall and nice music in the background for easy listening and not to disturb a nice conversation. The menu is good, not a large... More

Best Italian in Yerevan which is personally run by Artak the owner. You can always be sure of a good standard of freshly made food. Slightly expensive but well worth the reliability. Just wish they would bring back the specials on the black board!
