“Feel like in Italy in Yerevan”
Reviewed May 17, 2011

I am a big fan of Italian cuisine and I beleive Ankyun is the best Italian resturant in Yerevan! It feels like dining in a rural cozy Italian resturant, where you can enjoy homemade delicious food! The resturant is not cheap, however compared to other Italian resturants in Yerevan serving fine food it is relatevly affordable! Make sure to try their pasta with shrimp, the best dish on the menu!

“Cozy place with great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed April 29, 2011

I lived in Armenia for several years and Ankyun was my favorite restaurant for non-Armenian food. It was easily the best prepared steak in town and the Italian food was also extremely well done and clearly indicitive of the chef's training abroad. The prices are a little expensive for Yerevan, but overall extremely reasonable. I would recommend the place without hesitation to all visitors.

As another reviewer has mentioned, the restaurant is extremely small and it is very wise to call ahead and make reservations.

“A great little find”
Reviewed February 7, 2010

This is a tiny place with only a handfull of tables. You are taking a chance if you show up without a reservation. They serve Italian food, and it is very good. The prices are very reasonable.
