After more than a decade Ancora Ristorante has closed it's doors to make way for a Boutique Hotel. A decade worth of memories, experiences and friendships have developed. Unfortunately, myself and Ancora had to say a sudden goodbye to our friend and partner Tony Fantastico. I speak on behalf of myself and Tony when I say we loved our time with Ancora, and we had a good run. There are too many people to thank, and so many experiences to recount. We are grateful to all our staff, family and friends. You have made the experience unforgettable.
Although it was an end of an era for Ancora, I have decided to continue it's legacy as Antica Ristorante. Antica was brought to life by myself and my partner Sammy. Sammy himself is a downtown veteran once located at 15 gold street (San Marino ristorante.) Today we run San Marino from our Soho location while we spread our roots across this beautiful city. It felt right to leave Ancora for all that it was and start fresh. Antica will deliver the same message along with quality and service. We promise nothing but the best I welcome you to Antica,
Elio + Sammy
