good for the price but was not as amazing as we thought it would be. We went as we were staying at the hotel across the road

We went to L'Ancora as a couple staying at the (very) nearby Hotel Zagarella which is literally just over the road. We sat out on the pleasant covered terrace which despite overlooking the road was not too noisy.

Right across the road from the hotel zagarella. The food was delicious and the service excellent. Staff we're friendly and helpful prices very reassonable. We had mixed bruschetta, muscle soup, pasta,pizza beer and wine, all delicious. Great atmosphere and will be recommending other hotel guest cross over the road

We visited due to proximity to our hotel Domina Bay. The food was OK nothing to write home about. We tried pasta, salad and fish. We had pizza on second occasion, I personally didn't like the dough. All food was fresh but not a culinary experience.

Mariuccia was the perfect hostess who made us welcome for dinner despite not having booked, as well as part of the restaurant hosting a celebration dinner. Excellent value, pizzas especially and the house wine was cracking value! Quality, value and fresh local specialities! Perfect

Visited this restaurant twice on our stay in Santa Flavia (once for lunch and once for dinner) and both times were highly impressed! The staff on each occasion were very welcoming and their English was very good (much better than my Italian!). We had starters and mains on both occasions, pasta for lunch (as pizzas are only served with dinner)... More

Near to our hotel Domina Coral Bay, that doesn´t serve food. This restaurant was our savior. Food was good and service was even better. You can also buy food to go and buy drinking water, sodas, beer etc. to go also. Marvellous! Thank you L´Ancora!
