Forget the rest , after all these years the place is still the best!!!!

I've heard the complaints about this place , I get it the owners can be cold. Well the pizza is hot and that's all that matters. I really love there margarita pie, with extra pepperoni , some people say there's a women to blame but I know it's there own damn fault. Get over your feelings and try it... read more

Ancona's offers a fine variety of very good pizzas. It also has calzones, subs, pasta, and more. There is little dining area and no atmosphere, so take-out is a good option. While the pizzas are always good, on my last trip the meatball parm was a bit soggy and the sub roll was tough and chewy. Still, this is usually... More

I love their pizza but stopped going because the service was poor. I would wait to have my order taken as other patrons that came in after me would be served first because they were regulars and known by name. Not professional. They could also spend some money on an update of the place.

I go sometimes to Ancona and the pizza is great, not oily and very well done. Calzones are one of my daughters favorite.

I've been going to ancona for about 15 or so years. They've always made the best grandma and margarita slices locally. I've had a not-so-great pies from them here and there but overall when you are eating there it's terrific. They have really good baked ziti and a great staff. A solid pizza place who doesn't try to re-invent pizza.

To all perspective travelers to New York...DO drop in and have a slice. I grew up in NYC, Manhattan and on the Island (work and play) Best place to be in the WORLD in my opinion. To mr "FLYTZYINGGUY1" perhaps your taste buds are to blame! Anyone of my out of town friends that came back to N.Y. for a... More
