Pasquale & Donna Ancona

The menu originally featured traditional Italian dishes like veal, house-made pastas, and traditional Neapolitan pizzas, some of which remain customer favorites today. The Ancona’s have created a warm, friendly, family-oriented atmosphere from the beginning; these qualities continue to bring customers back as well as enchanting new fans daily. While Pasquale and Donna are semi-retired from their official restaurant duties, they can often be found in the dining room chatting with old and new friends alike.
