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.

Anyone who likes this place doesn't know anything about Italian food. There sauce is plain out nasty & there food stinks. I'd never eat there again!

Upon the return of one of our trips, no one feels like cooking. A quick call to Ancona's and 10 minutes later dinner is served. Consistently in the top 10 on Long Island for pizza Ancona's is always a hit, and worth the drive. (I really wish they delivered)

I have never had NYC pizza but if I did apparently this is as good as it gets on Long Island. The pizza was excellent! The crust nice and thin just the way it should be. I only wish I was staying here longer to taste it again!

Incredible that the best pizza in New York isn't in NYC. Try the grandma pizza, there's really nothing else like it.
