We were returning on the Staten Island ferry at 2:15PM and we were starving! I used my phone to find restaurants in the area and found Ancora. I called and they said if we got there before 3 they could serve us. It was a very short walk and when we entered the downstairs dining room we almost walked out. There was no one there excpet the servers. But we were hungry. And are we glad that we stayed! We ordered a Ceaser for two that was prepared tableside. I had the veal marsala and my husband had the ravioli of the day. Service was great. It was also funny because once we had our main coursed, all of the waiters and staff came out of the kitchen with their plates piled with pasta for their lunch at a big round table. They took turns jumping up to refill our glasses or check on us. Yes, it was pricey but this is New York, people! We'd definitely return if we were in the Wall Street area.
