    My wife and I are from Canada and we always make it a point to eat at Andiamo whenever we go on our shopping trips. The food is always great, the service is outstanding. We have never been disappointed and we will continue to make eating at Andiamo a priority whenever we are in the area.

    We noticed the menu was changed since the last time we dined at Andiamo. My husband and I each ordered a new item and we were not disappointed. Then the waitress told us a little more about a few other new items on the menu. Now we are excited to return and try those items.

    As always, the food was excellent. This time, the experience was lessened by a long wait for a waitress, and subpar service. There were 3 of the waitstaff standing in a group talking for each other. We finally had to ask a passing busboy to get us a waitress about 10 minutes after we had been seated.

    Dined on 11/2/2014
    The new menu is 1 large page - laminated (like Big Boy). The prices are higher on some items like the plain pasta w/sauce & portions less. The main feature is flatbreads. Many of the prior dinner choices are gone. They no longer offer the Italian vinaigrette for salads. I ordered the chicken picata & found the pasta to be a small amount of plain spagetti on my plate rather than the small plate of pasta w/ sauce served prior to dinner they previously offered. The nice Italian sliced bakery bread assortment has been replaced with white bread rolls They are good but not as flavorable & healthy as the former Italian bread & wheat bread basket. Most disappointing. We have been regulars for years but will look for other options going forward.

    We had a nice table and a good waiter and a nice glass of wine. The bread and sauce were very good. That's where the good ended. The "Brick Chicken" was reheated and quite tough. The waiter said it might seem tough because it was reheated but this chicken was very tough. My wifes dish was just OK. We paid top dollar for a meal that would have been better done at Olive Garden at half the price.

    We went the first week of the new menu. Food was very good. Some items that used to be there are no longer (veal chop) which is my favorite. You no longer get spaghetti before the entree. The server seemed to be in a hurry. She took the breadsticks off the table before we were done with them then knocked over a glass of water. She didn't replace the napkin or the silverware that she took away when cleaning the table. Food was excellent and this is the first of many visits that we have had any problems with service. Maybe they could bring back the veal chop as a special. There were no specials which there are usually one or two. Still excellent. Just miss some things from the old menu.

    we met friends for a late lunch, quiet atmosphere and were enjoying a nice antipasto and wine when a large family was seated in the room - the kids were loud and baby crying etc. not the restaurant's fault certainly but did not enhance the experience. Food was great, they accommodated subs - double vegetables and adding mushrooms cheerfully. Had a couple of house wines which were good as well. The carrot cake was exceptional - very involved friendly waiter, annoyed me but my bff loved him:)

    Nothing changes. Menu is average, really never changes. Service is great, servers work hard to please. Andiamos appears to be resting on the past. Needs to update and change menu often. As much as I enjoyed Andiamos in the past, this was likely our last visit for a while.

    Horrible service. Waiter did not great us until we sat for 12 minutes. When he did show it was in slow motion and he just disappeared for over 30 minutes. We asked the water kid to find him he couldn't so he asked a waitress and she said " oh him, he always disappears. Good luck at finding him". When he finally returned he couldn't even talk plain. Horrible!!

    Very nice setting. Nice upscale feel to the place. I took a date for a romantic dinner date. It was quiet, good service and the food was good. I had no complaints. The Waiter was friendly, took his time to listen and did not rush us at all. Very nice dinning experience. I would definitely book another dinner reservation at this location.

The service is excellent too. Many table are private and great for conversation. There are also large tables for families and a great room for large parties.

    Celebrated our 11th Anniversary August 16,2014. This was our first time at Andiamo. The food was very good (Big portions) and the wait staff was very attentive. The place was spotless. I did not like the security cameras above the tables. I know that a business owner has to protect himself against losses, but I feel the cameras should be by the door, not watching everyone eat or watching the employees. The whole experience was rushed for me. I felt like we were being rushed to eat then pushed out the door. The place was not very crowded either! Being our Anniversary, I was hoping for something a little bit more relaxed. Based on this visit, I don't know if I will go back again & I am not sure if I would recommend this place to a friend.

    While the food was good (the lasagna met expectations but the scallops/pasta were over the top! and the dessert was to die for), what made this meal memorable was the service. Andrew V sets the gold standard for wait staffs. His attentiveness, knowledge of the menu and recommendations were all on target. Always hovering nearby, any whim we could come up with, Andrew met graciously and with a smile. This guy should be the head waiter/instructor for all of Andiamo's wait staff. What a pleasurable meal this was - thanks so much to Andrew V.

    This was our first time at this Andiamos, and only our second time ever dining at an Andiamos. The service was excellent. Lovely ambiance. The dinner was superb - had a chicken dish and a stuffed salmon dish. Both delicious. We weren't very impressed with the soups however. Ministrone lacked flavor. The onion soup was more of a stew with very little broth. However, we would return because we enjoyed the entrees so much.

    It took 20 minutes for our waitress to get to us, even though we made reservations, and it was my birthday. Then she takes our drink order, that comes back wrong, and it took about 15 minutes to get the right drink. When she comes back to take our order, we find out that they were out of the meal we wanted. Then I tell the waitress to give me and my husband a minute to decide if we want to stay or not, she takes the menus and speeds off, then comes back another 15 minutes later and asks if we've decider, but we had to inform her she took the menus! It was just horrible! To top it off, she told me how pretty I looked, and then asked me if I was wearing contacts!!! There are black women with green eyes! How rude!!!

The best feature is the bar and music area with first class musicians.....but drinks are expensive....

    Overall strange experience. Wine took forever to come, waiter asked us for our order after he had taken it, we had to request bread twice, two of the three dinners were lukewarm, waiter again asked us about questions on the menu after he tried to take the order twice....very melodramatic and invasive into our dinner. Felt like we were at a sitcom about a bad dining experience.

    Dinged for noise level because there was live music in the bar plus recorded music in the signing area. The band was loud enough to be heard throughout the restaurant...and so was the recorded music. That was a bit annoying. Otherwise, our food was delicious and our server was great.
