Every event held in the Private Dining Room at Andrea is an exclusive, one-of-a-kind celebration that creates lasting memories. Whether a social affair or a business dinner, our Chef personally oversees every detail and dazzles with his culinary skills and creativity. The inspired, elegant ambiance of the Private Dining Room transports guests to Italy, while a wall of windows reveals vivid panoramas of the Newport Beach coastline and the blue Pacific of Southern California. Andrea specializes in Italian-themed dining events such as Tuscan-influenced menus with Tuscan wine pairing, Winemaker Dinners with Italian classic wines and chic-rustic cuisine, and Holiday celebrations with either a traditional American or Italian theme. The Chef’s “Under the Tuscan Sun” evening is a culinary adventure where he introduces each course and spices the dinner with anecdotes and stories.
- The Restaurant Writes...
The attention to detail in Andrea has been unprecedented in order to recreate storied culinary traditions and classic dishes bursting with the true flavors of Italy. Our Chef Luigi Fineo, has sourced the perfect ingredients and implemented time-honored practices and preparations to bring the best of Italy to The "Tuscan Village by the Sea" at Pelican Hill Resort. From salads made with 100-year-old Balsamic vinegar to delicate Potato Crusted Branzino; from exquisite pastas made in a one-of-kind, temperature-controlled Pastaio to the Laboratorio del Gelato producing mouth-watering artisan-style gelato, the food at Andrea is simply captivating. As in Italy, Andrea is seasonally focused, the menu adapting to the finest ingredients available at that time of year. A chic yet understated and relaxed atmosphere is enriched by being located, at the heart of the resort, to capture the most inspiring panoramas of the Newport Coast and the sun setting over the Pacific.
