• With possibly the best Italian food in the city, this place serves great pastas and starters. Try the carpaccio in olive oil or for vegetarians the tomato and mozzarella platter. The steaks are arguably the best in town. The atmosphere is quiet and candlelit, unusual for an Armenian restaurant.

  • Mein Lieblingsrestaurant in Jerewan ist das Ankyun. Trotz des armenischen Namens: es ist ein Italiener, und zwar auf Top Niveau. Die Speisekarte ist übersichtlich, dazu gibt’s einige Gerichte zusätzlich mit Kreide auf Tafeln geschrieben. Bislang war alles, was ich bislang bestellte, knackig-frisch und von erstklassiger Qualität. Und zwar egal, ob Antipasti, Suppe, Salat, Hauptgericht oder Dessert. Ich las bei Tripadvisor, die Steaks sollen so toll sein. Ich bin eigentlich nicht der große Steak-Enthusiast - aber was hier serviert wird, schmeckte mir großartig. Ein Lob an die armenischen Rinder und den Koch...

  • Everything about this place is a 10. The atmosphere, the music, the furniture, the food, the service... also i don't like smoking and they allow smoking in this place. Even with the smoking i am totally into this place and i can say that this place is my favorite restaurant in Yerevan. I recommend the Karas red wine for any occasion. It is served in the right temperature and is perfect kept...

  • Ankyun means corner in Armenia and this excellent restaurant brings a small corner for great Italian food to Yerevan. A small and intimate place with cozy and quiet atmosphere inside. Some beautiful Italian pictures on the wall and nice music in the background for easy listening and not to disturb a nice conversation. The menu is good, not a large selection as you might find in some places, but to me this indicates they only offer dishes they can prepare with high quality. I had a lentil soup that was one of the best I have ever tasted. It was filled with lentils and some white beans accompanied by small pieces of vegetables. It was slightly spicy to the taste as the waitress warned me. But was very nice. After this I had the vegetarian lasagna and this was superb. Nicely prepared and served on an open plate with rich creamy sauce to the side. Again one of the best vegetarian lasagnas I have ever had. I had the home made lemonade and this was very good as well. The prices are a little more than in other restaurants but well worth the slightly extra. You get the quality that you pay for here and expectations are met. Well worth a return visit.

  • The best place for meat lovers. Aged by the owner to perfection, wether you like it cooked or rear (a perfect carpaccio) the meat is incredible. The salads are tasty, original and seasoned perfectly.

  • We stayed in a hotel around the corner from this restaurant and went there for dinner one night. The experience was very good and we were sorry not to have more time to come back. We were in asparagus season, so had a starter and soup from asparagus, lovely. Then we shared caprese salad, they have Armenian made mozarella and we thought it was of very good quality. Then we went for risotto and pasta dishes - both excellent; loved the fruity taste in the risotto, really something I have not tried before. The service was friendly, prompt and professional. The anmosphere is simple, non-pretentious; it is a nice place to visit with friends / family and enjoy a relaxed evening. The prices are not very cheap but not over the top either, good price / quality ratio. It was probably our best meal in Armenia :).

  • This is definitely the best Italian restaurant in Yerevan. I was really positively suprised finding such a good food and friendly service with great athmophere. The Lasagne I ordered tasted just like a lasagne should taste. They have menu in English han the staff speaks excellent English. It was more expensive than most of the other restaurants. all right. But it was worth of every penny.

  • Dopo ormai vari anni a Yerevan, l’Ankyun resta un punto di ritrovo fisso per l’ambiente confortevole e il buon cibo di casa. Complimenti, Artak e Lusine, continuate cosi!

  • Al ristorante italiano “Ankyun” di Jerevan mi sono sentita a casa propria! Non avrei mai immaginato che fosse possibile creare un’atmosfera esattamente simile a quella italiana. Piatti eccezionali, servizio eccellente. Grazie!

  • Atmosphere, for who like me is a usual client, is really like to be AT HOME...
    Service is so attentive, so smiling, but always so DISCRETE and never disturbing... The low volume music inside of the Restaurant is mostly Italian music of '60 and '70..that make me/us jump in the past..

  • I am a big fan of Italian cuisine and I believe Ankyun is the best Italian restaurant in Yerevan! It feels like dining in a rural cosy Italian restaurant, where you can enjoy homemade delicious food! The restaurant is not cheap, however compared to other Italian restaurants in Yerevan serving fine food it is relatively affordable! Make sure to try their pasta with shrimp, the best dish on the menu!

  • Might be a bit on the expensive side, but Ankyun is our go-to place in Yerevan. Not only they serve what's probably the best Italian food in Yerevan - honest, rustic, with a touch of elegance, but also amazing steaks cooked to perfection! Make sure to try their pumpkin soup -- it's to die for! The staff is very attentive and knowledgeable, service fast and pleasant. Unfortunately they don't have delivery service, but they do offer takeaway for most of their dishes.
