One of the better spots in MetairieWe arrived at a strange hour (3:15) for an early dinner and were seated immeditaely. The restaurant is handsome, and about as fancy as you can get in the suburbs. Seafood is a good way to go. Two fish dishes (salmen and red snapper) were excellently prepared and very tasty. The cheesecake was very good. Service was polite and professional, but lacked some finer points.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat RestaurantSimply put, Andrea's is a great restaurant and is highly recommended.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation CelebrationLoved having a private room to celebrate our daughters Nursing Graduation! The private dining area made it comfortable for everyone to talk without disturbing others! The 3 course lunch was perfect and the food was delicious! Will definitely return for a family gathering again!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeThis is one of our favorite restaurants for a special night out. It is fairly expensive, but the food and service are good.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day Hades with Great WineI like Andrea's; I like Andrea's a lot. My family goes to Andrea's at least once a month because the food and wine are excellent, and we generally love it. Sadly, Franco has retired, and we will miss him. But this Mother's Day at Andrea's was our first and last "special event" there. First, we show up, our reserved table is taken, and we're instead seated in a massive room of noisy dissonance. After we're seated, contracted help brings water and then 10-minutes pass without so much as a hello. So, my wife gets up and tells the hostess we're moving or leaving and fortunately a table in our normal section opened up. But then comes the delay of starting anew with a new waiter, but at least we finally got service.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchMy brother and I took our mother to brunch. The restaurant was packed but we were seated quickly. My only complaint was that it took 30 mins from the time we were seated until our food order was taken. About 15 mins after we were seated the server took our drink order, and walked away so quickly she didn't even give us time to say that we were ready to order, then it took another 15 mins for her to come back with our drinks, at which time she took our food order. She did apologize for the wait, and said that a server had walked out. The food was excellent, and the wait time after the order was taken was reasonable.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial Motther's DayThis year, I took my 94-year-old mother to Andrea's to celebrate the special day for mom's. She moved to the New Orleans area from West Texas last year, and this was the second year in a row that we chose Andrea's for a Mother's Day treat. It's kind of shaping up to be a tradition for us.
The menu featured a Mother's Day special three-course meal for $45, not including tax or gratuities. It was quite a reasonable price for what we got.
My mother pronounced it a "red-letter day," the stuff that memories are made of. I have to concur.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food as alwaysAndrea's is a fantastic local restaurant.

Thank you again, Kat Schroeder4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGo!This place is a real gem. Because it is across from a mall and off Causeway Blvd., I assumed it would be more touristy. It is a wonderful, old style, Italian restaurant with some of the best food in New Orleans. The service is fantastic, the food is wonderful and the ambiance is like you stepped into the 1950s.
This is such a convenient location and one of our favorite restaurants in the region.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGood home-made pasta.Everyone was welcoming and super friendly. Osso Bucco melted in my mouth and the homemade pasta was delicious. Our only complaint was that the server was not familiar with the menu and the portions were a tad bit small. The ambiace was superb.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I just relocatedMy wife and I just relocated back to Louisiana after 12 years living away. The food at Andrea's was superb, just as remembered, however the service was disappointing (our waitress was unable to answer simple questions regarding the menu despite insisting that she was experienced...thankfully another waiter noticed the difficulty and gracefully stepped in to assist. Also, it was early and too many wait staff were just standing around looking rather unprofessional. As for the ambiance..how about investing in new carpet for one thing... in general a little sprucing up would be a good thing.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOur group had a wonderfulOur group had a wonderful time and our overall experience was excellent!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you are looking for a greatIf you are looking for a great Italian meal with a homey setting then this is the place for you. Decor feels like an old house in Italy...actually it looked very much like restaurants we ate at in Italy. Food was excellent. We had parma ham and melon as appetizer and char broiled oysters as appetizers which were both very good. I had the ravioli with crab which was really good but very rich sauce so would recommend a small portion with something else. My companion had a stuffed veal which he really enjoyed. Service was very attentive, friendly and gave great recommendations.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAn excellent dining experience.An excellent dining experience.

Chef Andrea visited with the people dining to ensure everything was okay.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAndrea's is one of my favoriteAndrea's is one of my favorite restaurants ever. I've eaten there for prom, my anniversary, and my birthday dinner just recently. For being such a nice restaurant they have decent pricing. The menu offers a lot of variety and the food is fantastic. I've never eaten anything here that I didn't like. As for the staff, they're always very friendly and accommodating, you never have to search for them if you need something. Also, every time I've eaten there, at some point during dinner, I'm greeted by Chef Andrea. I LOVE that even though he's a busy man, he takes the time to be personable with the customers and make sure they're enjoying themselves. They get an A in my book!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWell done... consistently1I have visited Andrea and his kitchen many times over the years. It is still excellent in cuisine, atmosphere and Santino's service was attentive, responsive and prompt. Very enjoyable.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is delicious, fresh,The food is delicious, fresh, classic.
Andrea personally visits each table and asks if we are enjoying the meal, a very personable touch.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
