    When we make our reservation via Open Table we requested our favorite wait person (Catlin) and also a booth by the windows. Upon arrival we were excited to have both of our requests satisfied and had a tasty veal and mushroom dish. Thank you Open Table.

    Andiamo restaurants have all slipped since they expanded. The original Andiamo in Warren was one of the best restaurants in metro Detroit. The quality has suffered since it became a "chain". The food is OK but not special. The menu is not what it was at the original or even at some of the other locations a few years ago. This Livonia location will not be here for long because it is not very good. We won't be returning here.

    My boyfriend and I went here for dinner. I've been to several other Andiamo's before and was confident this one would be as good. Boy I was wrong. Our dining experience took almost 3 hours and the food was sub par. We have to put a lot of salt and pepper on the dishes to get a good flavor. Our waiter was nice enough, but painfully slow. We waited over 15 minutes just for drinks! At the end of the meal we addressed the situation with the manager and he just didn't seem to care. He did nothing for us. Overall just VERY disappointed with this restaurant and I will not be returning.

    We've been to this restaurant quit a few times. First time that one of our meals could have been better prepared at home. They are having their pasta promotion this month and the pasta dish my wife ordered was less than satisfactory (it's was supposed to be one of their signature dishes). The middle of the bowl of pasta was all clumped together like a ball. Very bland tasting and only came with a few shrimp. This was not ordered off of their SPECIALS MENU. I can understand why our waitperson mentioned that the Pasta Promotion hasn't been well received. An Italian restaurant that can't get the pasta right. Really-----

    Our server, Erica, was very welcoming and attentive. Our grandson (age 11) loves the calamari, minestrone soup, and seafood linguini. They were excellent. The fish selections were interesting and tasty -- roasted scallops with corn ragu and whitefish with agmmoli sauce. The drinks were good and the wine selection by the glass were nice. Loved the ambience -- soft lighting, white table cloths, dark walls-- with a touch of elegance. We liked the music from the bar -- not too loud and nice for dinning. A great evening!!

    We have dined here before, but it had been a while since we had come to the Livonia Andiamo's. The ambience is so special and the staff is caring, knowledgeable and most efficient. Our waiter Zachary was a delight! The food was fantastic...we both ordered filet, each prepared differently. They were cooked perfectly! Fromsoup to nuts, we loved our dining experience and look forward to going back soon....

    This was a great place for an anniversary dinner - white table cloths, attentive staff, excellent food and good wine list. We started with a nice selection of breads and a house salad. The salads were fresh and not watery. My husband enjoyed the lobster ravioli with corn and wild mushrooms while I had the veal stuffed cannelloni. The food was delicious and the presentation was very good but not fussy. We will definitely return.

    We were not that impressed with our Andiamo experience. Our calamari appetizer came immediately and it was cold and rubbery. We sent it back uneaten but were still charged for it. The soup was good but just an average salad. The entrees were fine but the vegies that came with were not. The pacing of our meal was the real problem. After soup and salad we got our side pastas immediately and then sat forever waiting for the main dish. We asked for our candle to be lit and were told that there were no more candles ??!!! We took one from another table after that party departed. Certainly not our most memorable or enjoyable dining experience and we have plenty of other options.

    We are from Windsor Ontario and were celebrating our 42 wedding anniversary by overnighting in the Livonia area. We picked your restaurant as we had been once before and found it very good. Matthew was our waiter. Very attentive and knowledgable. His recommendations were 'spot on'! The food was as excellent as expected. The food and especially the service made this a most memorable experience for us. Thank you.

    Andiamo's is always a class act. The facilities are great. The wait staff is first class. The food is excellent. I would highly recommend the calamari tossed in the restaurant's own amoglio sauce as an appetizer. It is second to none.

    Our waiter Matthew was very good, attentive, patient and friendly. Portabella appetizer was delicious. Breads were good. Soups were flavorful. Salads my colleagues had ordered looked fresh. Seemed like the portions of the main entrees were smaller than anticipated. Wines prices were decent. However, I think Matthew forgot the pasta accompaniment. I had mentioned 'Celebrating Wedding Anniversary' in my reservations comment which was completely missed! I expected that a restaurant of Andiamo caliber would be more thorough.

    My wife and I ate here recently to celebrate our anniversary. Our waiter was attentive though I felt he could have known the menu better. My wife ordered the salmon which she said was good, though a bit overcooked. That seems to be a problem many restaurants have. I ordered the scallops which were served over a corn ragu. The scallops we're melt in your mouth tender. Unfortunately the corn tasted like it was a week old and not at all fresh which really spoiled the dish. I'd certainly give Andiamo another try, it it wouldn't be at the top of my list.

    We had dinner with friends at Livonia Andiamo Friday 8/29. The place was buzzing with activity. The hostesses were confused on with table to give us. The booth we got was not comfortable the backs were straight and the cushions too low for the table. I asked for a different booth but hostess was confused and did not respond. The server Boren C, was not listening to us. He had lots of tables and had us on the clock. I told him we need time to talk and relax. He kept coming back asking if we were ready to order. I repeated we need time to no avail. He served our meals rapidly not timed as we have had prior experience. My Veal Chop was a small piece of veal on a large bone not like I am use to receiving at your resturant

    I was disappointed that there wasn't a booth available for my aniversary dinner. The reservation site did not specify what tables I had to choose from. The Hostess was very rude in that we weren't given the option to wait for a booth we were just told "NO" we could not have one. Appetizer portion was very small. I would have opted for a different appetizer had I known the portion size. And the crab cake was fishy tasting. Not what I would have expected in this restaurant. Dinner was good but I felt that 7:00 PM wasn't late enough since there were still many children in the restaurant. If I was going back for a special occasion I would have made the reservation much later in the evening.
