Joe Vicari's Andiamo Italian Steakhouse - Bloomfield
What happened??We have been going to the Andiamos on Telegraph for a very long time. I must say this past time I was disappointed. I am used to getting salad, pasta with sauce, and one or two veges with my meal. This time it was a hunk of meat on a plate for $38. Where was the rest of my meal? My husband and I come to that Andiamos for all of our special occations and I was shocked to see they took away half of the food and raised the prices. The fillet we did get was great but I wanted to see the rest of my food. I could hear the rest of the chatter around us and other people were saying the same thing. If things do not go back to the way they were I don't thing we will be back and that makes me sad because that was my favorite restaurant.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways consistently great!A wonderful menu of many tasty choices. I have a hard time deciding what to order. I had the veal piccata which was so thin and tender with artichoke hearts and capers. The service is always exceptional as well. This was a business lunch, which I have here often. Highly recommend it.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBest swordfish ever!everything was delicious - including the tableside Ceasar salad and the bean soup, but the hit of the night was the swordfish! Tasty, tender, and moist - loved every bite!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorite restaurantsI have been taking customers and my family and friends to Andiamo's for years. The food and wine are great. I like all the specials that are available with my Andiamo Grazi card, too.
Just a great place to eat and enjoy the people you are with.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMNew Steakhouse Format a HitNew upscale steakhouse format for this popular Italian restaurant was well received. We were originally seated in the annex room, which didn't have the same ambiance as the main dining room. I asked if we could get a table in the main room and were quickly accommodated. Service was prompt and friendly. Wine prices were reasonable and a sommelier decanted the wine. I had the signature veal dish ( a saltimbocca with veal tenderloin) and my wife had the filet. Both were excellent. The sides were more than enough for two. Overall, simply a great dining experience.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThey make you feel special.This was by far my best dining experience in a long time. The BEST service ever by all. The wait staff, wine staff, manager and chef all came to,our table . All went above and beyond to make our experience perfect! Joe Vicari should model all his restaurants after this one. The others need help.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food!It was crowded and we had to wait for our table for 15-20 minutes but they tried to get us seated as soon as possible. The food was top notch, came fairly quickly. We had our 4 year old with us and they really tried to be kid-friendly, but maybe not the best place for that. Everyone was very accommodating and pleasant. The salmon dish was very nice. Wife loved her steak. This cuisine is some of the best around.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe eggplant parmesan is notThe eggplant parmesan is not on the menu, since Andiamo's changed the restaurant format to an Italian steakhouse. They will, however, make it upon request if they have fresh eggplant available. The fresh eggplant is mostly used for the terrific caponata that comes as an complementary appetizer with every meal. On this night, the eggplant parmesan was crisp, tender, and expertly prepared. If you really want the eggplant, it is a good idea to call ahead to make sure that they have it. We love their bread sticks too!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, better service, priceyWere told it was a 30-45 minute wait WITH reservations, but was seated in about 10 minutes. Great service (especially at the bar). Our waitress was extremely pleasant and friendly and check back several times. My wife enjoyed her chicken and I really liked my Antagosto (sp?) meat filled pasta in mushroom sauce. Seemed a bit pricey (esp. the wine - $12/glass) but an enjoyable dining experience. Very efficient, especially given how crowded it was (a Friday night).4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat change from the oldGreat change from the old Andiamo's (which we liked alot!)
Staff friendly and knowledgable. Good wine selection and health coctails. Food was outstanding.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great and theThe food was great and the service was superb. Our party of four was seated immediately upon arrival. Our waiter took our drink orders and helped us select the right bottle of wine to satisfy evryone's taste. He explained the specials that the chef was preparing. The entire eveing was made special by the table side Ceaser Salad preparation. All in all it was a great evening in a great resturant.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a great dinner - theIt was a great dinner - the food was wonderful and the server (Nikki) was just the right blend of attentiveness and privacy.

Been there many times and have never been disappointed.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the first time toThis was the first time to take our two-year old. They were very accommodating, understanding and the kids meal was amazing for the price. Our meal of course was excellent as well and our server was perfect. As always our favorite dessert topped off the evening, The Tuxedo.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious, serviceFood was delicious, service excellent but our party of six was seated in the back room next to two large birthday parties of 15 and 16 year olds. As you can imagine conversation was very difficult. Obviously you were aware of these large group reservations and we should have made aware of it as well so we could have chosen either to be seated elsewhere or dined elsewhere.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant does not justifyThe restaurant does not justify the expense. The food was good, the service was excellent, but just way too much money for a local spot. Think twice before I go back, unless I take out a second mortgage.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMfood was excellent and deliveredfood was excellent and delivered hot to the table.

One meal included a side of pasta but she brought one for all three of us so we were all eating at the same time. The presentation of the food was one of the best I have seen in a long time. Food was delicious. Nice job Joe Vicari and staff!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
