    The food choices were excellent the prices were fair and the service was very good, only complaint was that it appeared much larger in the pics online. It was rather small and crowded. They had a huge bar area that if there were smart they would expand their dining area because the food is so good. I would recommend but I would suggest then get a larger dining space

    I was disappointed by this restaurant that has been a staple of federal hill for many years. The restaurant was small, noisy and service was particularly slow. Save for a very nice busser who was on top of clearing our table as needed with a smile. The food was sub-par and way overpriced. In a small area with many Italian restaurants competing for business, this restaurant did not win my business back again. I would not suggest this restaurant to friends and would not return.

    Unfortunately there was a wedding party occupying several tables next to us. The noise level was HIGH & we couldn't even hold a conversation at our table.Server apologized for the noise-so the HIGH is not an exaggeration-but it didn't matter.A free appt or dessert would have helped to make a spoiled evening a little better. Food was good except my eggplant app was a little too crispy on the bottom. Wonder if it was a wedding party app left over? Fried mozz was wonderful. Would definitely visit again IF there isn't a big noisy party next to us.

    Andino's is a consistent experience! The food was good and the staff is always friendly. We sat at the bar(near the door) before dinner and when the door opened we felt the cold air rush in. We were then seated near the door for dinner and felt the cold air again. You need to fix that situation!

    Andino’s offered a variety of specials from appetizers to dessert. Our meal was filling, but we did find room to fit a fried cannoli for dessert!! The service was great. I will return and would recommend Andino’s to friends and family.

    Small, crammed, loud, poor service...not even good gravy for an "Italian" place. It took 15 minutes to get a drink order in, another 15 to get food order in and 40+ Minutes to get lobster ravioli and baked stuffed shrimp served (which was horrible). Even the bread was cold and stale. Over $100 tab and I left starving. I'll never be back.

    the appertizers of shrimp scampi and snail salad were great. In fact, the snail salad was the best i ever had by a long shot. the entree of chicken saltimbocca was excellent, Only problem my entree of veal picatta was very tasty, but the veal was tough. Sometimes this happens at the best restaurants. All in all i will definitely return to this restaurant

    Andino's restaurant in the federal hill section of providence is awesome! The food and service were excellent ! There is valet parking which helps when you have reservations. Our table was ready and available as planned. There is much variety with homemade pasta dishes, chicken, seafood, veal, and steak entrees.

    The pasta, eggplant, and bruschetta were delicious! I would have ordered the stuffed mushrooms, but I'm vegetarian. The service was excellent; staff was friendly, accommodating, and polite. The music, however, was too loud. Softer Italian music would definitely create a more appropriate ambiance.

    From the vast number of Italian restaurants on Atwells Avenue, we felt like we made the right choice. The bar staff and host were incredibly friendly, introduced themselves, and remembered our names. The food was great--nothing super fancy, just really well prepared, generous portions...and a great tomato sauce. The prices for food and wine were reasonable, and service was excellent.

    We were visiting Providence for a business conference, selected Andino's from on-line reviews. We were delighted with the food and the service. It is located in the Federal Hill neighborhood. We had a group of 12, but we were able to find something on the menu that everyone loved. It was a little cramped, but once some other diners finished their meal, the serving staff added a table to ours and we were able to spread out. The food was fabulous and the service could not have been better. Additionally, we were able to eat for about $50 person including dessert.

    Came with a group of 6 people. 4 of them were from out of town. We had them try the Snails Andino and the Calamari tosses with the peppers. They loved it. The seafood dishes were extremely fresh and flavorful. Try the chicken or veal parm, best on Federal Hill!!

    The food is always excellent, with the veal being the best around. Service is always prompt and cordial without being pushy or too chatty, but tonight's dishwasher wasn't up to par. Cracked waterglass, followed by a warm waterglass with a stray piece of lettuce; a far-from-normal occurence (as in never before). The waitstaff was properly horrified and made up for this with a bit of humor and increased attentiveness. Andino's remains my favorite dining establishment

    Andino's has some of the best Italian food in Rhode Island! If they have the grilled pizzas available, they are amazing, particularly the Italiano. Also, if you like pasta, the gnocchi is the best around... Amazing food! Small intimate location, only negative is it can be loud sometimes, but still very romantic and worth the trip in my opinion!

    My husband and I celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary at Andino's with our 17 year old twins. We had a great table on the patio and our waiter Eric could not have been any more nicer or professional that night. He answered our questions about the specials and how they were made and even brought us complimentary glasses of champagne with our appetizers. I wanted to cry. The food was great, I had the eggplant parm, which was a big serving, I took half home! My husband had the chicken saltimbuca (?) and he loved that. My son had the gnocci and my daughter had a chicken dish that was a special, also taking most of it home because the portions are huge at Andino's. It was a perfect night and we cannot wait to dine there again soon!

    Andino's was all I imagined and so much more, service was impeccable, personable and spot on. Never hovering always ready at just the right time.The atmosphere was very nice, we sat outside and couldn't have asked for a more quiet area. (inside looked like it could get noisy if packed).The food was fantastic - from the dipping bread to the meal .Starting w/ fried mozzarella as an app, breaded and topped with the best marinara sauce I've ever tasted.I chose the classic fettuccini,my husband chose the veal parm.Cooked to perfection and plenty left over for. The Limoncello mascarpone cake was great, very lite w/ just enough sweet to seal the deal. They definitely made our anniversary special.... Definitely a must do when on the hill! Enjoy !!

    Accommodated reservation for time desired. Appreciated the valet parking as street parking is minimal at best. Food and drinks were fine, large portions where we brought food home. Were pushed a bit to vacate the table as another party was waiting but in all a very good time with a good meal and friends. Price was reasonable.
