A complete sentence:
If only Anny [is; is being; was / were] a bit more reliable. Then we wouldn't have to wonder if the job is being done correctly.

After expressions like "If only" and "Wish" we should use the subjunctive mood if we want to show something we want but unlikely to get.

If only she were more reliable (=She is not reliable. I wish she were, though).

"If only Anny were a bit more reliable, we wouldn't have to wonder..." That's the best formal expression. In ordinary speech, 'was' might be used.
