A lot of "attention" goes into "getting the best ingredients" for the "out-of-this-world" Neapolitan pies that emerge from the imported wood-burning oven at this Freret Street collaboration between pizzaiolo Jeff Talbot and Adolfo Garcia (whose High Hat Cafe is next door); foodies insist "it's not your average pizza parlor" , what with the "cool" decor, artisanal house-cured salumi, "focused Southern Italian wine list” and "great bartenders" mixing craft cocktails.

Insider Tip
Ancora's pizzas are made in the strict Neapolitan style, so they are smaller than the typical Italian-American pie.

We live in the area, and we go to Ancora every week.. Sometimes more. The food is always delicious, made with fresh ingredients, and never sits--the moment it's out of the oven or pan, it's rushed to a table. Adrian, the chef/co-owner, knows what he's doing. He crafts amazing charcuterie, and my favorite, chicken liver mousse. He clearly trains all of the kitchen because even when he isn't there, the food is consistent. I love the Bianca with an egg... Really, any of the pizzas plus an egg! The staff is always so friendly and the wine selection complements the food perfectly. We love this neighborhood spot and are psyched that it's now open for lunch too.

I have just been transported back to living in Naples. This Naples D.O.C. style pizza was perfect in authenticity, and perfect in taste. Of all the things to come back to New Orleans to experience, pizza at Ancora has to be at the top of the list!
