Food is consistently good, not my favorite pizza but the heroes are second to none in both flavor and value. Every time I get the chicken parm hero I have trouble finishing it, almost too much chicken, almost, the bread is first class light and full flavored. Service is typical for a pizza parlor, not the reason you come here... More

Their Sicilian pizza is the best! Their specialty pizzas are also wonderful and always fresh. I've had their heroes and can heartily recommend them. Never had a bad meal here. I only wish they delivered.

Although their pizza is the bomb, I am obsessed with the baked ziti. The sauce is Mmmmm mmmm. I have been going here with my family since I was born. Great hometown gem.

Stopped in for a quick slice when I was running errands on Rockaway Avenue. Having lived in the area for many years, I would suggest you can do better. For example, Marinara and Pizza Place (both in Hewlett) are worth the 5 minute drive from Ancona. And if you're over by the Southern State, try Genovese. All three are far... More

Best pizza joint on the island. Several varieties - by the slice or by the pie. Friendly staff, awesome crew. Parking in the back of the building. Cash only. Good prices.

Ancona is my favorite pizzeria in the area. The only problem with them is that they have built a great reputation and now they are relying on this without any further creativity. It seems that they are ok how they are. They don't do one of the most important services in a pizzeria DELIVERY ! So we call to another... More

We have been enjoying this place for 30+ years. It remains pretty good. Service is always great. Prices are very good and the food is consistently good.

I have family members that grew up on this pizza but moved away. When they come back to NY, the first thing they want is Ancona's Sicilian. It's that important to them to have something that brings back great childhood memories and comfort. They just need to do a Lille facelift on the decor.

I know people like this place, which I can't figure out. For me this is the worst pizza I've gotten on the island. Greasy, tomato-y and under cooked dough. I would never stop here for a slice again.
