What we do

We have been delighting you with the finest delicacies from Messina and Sicily since 1968

Whether you are from Messina or visiting our Sicilian city, L’Ancora is your point of reference for traditional island cuisine. Our story begins in Messina in 1968, with the Rotisserie overlooking the sea Strait.

Since then L’Ancora has increased its offering with flavors, aromas and recipes, to become a place where you can savor Sicily in all its nuances. There are first and second courses from both land and sea, street food and desserts typical of the island and its territory. And let’s not forget the café and ice-cream parlor products.

In 1996 L’Ancora doubled its offering with a second outlet onboard the «Telepass» passenger ship, making the journey from one end of the Strait of Messina to the other much tastier.
