A nice, clean cozy place with very good food and a nice atmosphere. The service was outstanding and the prices are very reasonable.

Good food and service
We decided to go here after realizing that we had left all of our business casual close at home. You can easily be dressed up going here but we went in dark jeans and shirts nothing fancy. The service took a little while to get to us but we were told that was due to something going on so it may be quicker otherwise.
The food is cooked to order as they told us. If you find something but want it changed they will work with you for it. I wish I had thought about this when it was time for desert and there was no molten brownie with ice cream.
The food was very good and not dry. The bread was okay. I was brought a tall glass of water when I decided not to drink which was nice.
All and all it was a very good experience.

A Charming Dining Experience
Having dined inside at Andino's a while ago, this restaurant definitely deserved high ratings for its food and service, but this past weekend, we had the delightful opportunity to be seated in the patio area. It is quite hidden, very spacious, yet can be a romantic escape for an evening. One can liken the experience to that of Italy. The entire waitstaff was most welcoming and our server, Stephanie, was knowledgeable, helpful, and outgoing. The entrees were perfectly prepared according to our requests and the tasty, generous portions of veal, swordfish, and eggplant pleased everyone at out table. Andino's is a cozy gem.

Federal Hill Must
This is a small place and reservations are a must! The food is top notch and they always have great specials as well. Although I say I will try new places in Federal Hill area, I always end up back at Andino's for the consistently quality food and I never have room left for desert.

A great experience!
This place was wonderful - perfect for a night out with my husband! Quiet, but not too quiet; small but not too small; they had phenomenal Italian dishes and plenty of choices! All made to order for any special requests! Excellent sangria! I would definitely recommend this place and there are many restaurants on Federal Hill, but this place was a "5 star" place for food and price of food and atmosphere!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had the opportunity to dine at Andinos on Aug.23. We requested a special table and that's what we got. The service was outstanding and we were very happy! We ordered 4 apps. Calamari, mozzarella sticks, squash flowers and clams casino. They were all delicious. Our portions were large and worth the money. The chicken parm that was ordered was slightly burned on the edges and that's why I gave it only 4 stars for food. Absolutely would come back.

4 Stars because of the table
We had a great meal, great service but the table was awesome. First they sat us in the back of the restaurant by the door. They did ask to move us to another table because we were Open Table VIP's....but the second table was sticking out into the aisle where the wait staff and customers were making there way in and out of the restaurant.
Would have been 5 stars if we had a better table!

Great Italian in Federal HIll
This is an old-school place with a traditional Italian-American menu. All of your favorites and standards are there. The service is extremely friendly, accommodating and gracious. We arrived a little early for our table and were offered a seat in the courtyard and cocktails while we waited. We felt very well taken care of. I got the seafood and linguine special. Huge portion with lots of seasoning - more oregano than I would prefer but it was cooked well and there was plenty to share. I would say overall, the food is good - not great. However, the service and hospitality were so good, I would come back again just for that.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my sixth trip to Andino's. It never disappoints. The loaded snail salad, the Chicken Andino, and the Veal Saltimbocca were all amazing. Service was great, attentive but not overly solicitous. We were happy that the hostess responded quickly to our request to be seated in the front area. Wonderful experience, will go back soon many time!! My favorite place on The Hill!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The menu has everything plus the food is very good but the service was outstanding, not to be missed
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM

40th Wedding Anniversary!
Our three children took us to Andino's for our 40th Wedding Anniversary and it was perfect. The food was exceptional (my wife and I shared veal parmagian and an order of manicotti. I has a glass of Merlot, which was very smooth. The outdoor patio setting was very nice as the early evening weather was also perfect. The canolli desert was also exceptional. I will definitely go back and try some of the other wonderful menu selections.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed the outdoor patio
Had a nice dinner and evening on the outside patio in a party of 6. The inside tables are packed in way too tightly. The food was good. There were no complaints. The service was good too. The host was very friendly and accommodating. The waiter was attentive.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Worth the drive
Good food ,service ..although little tight quarters but easy to reserve a table and valet parking make it a good destination

We went for lunch after searching
We went for lunch after searching open table reviews for Federal Hill and we were not disappointed!! Andino's received great reviews and we know why, the food is outstanding, just like my mom used to make! The 3 course lunch menu features home made chicken soup, fried raviolis and the best veal marsala I've had in a long time. Our waitress Theresa had great suggestions. The roasted chicken on broccoli rabe and peppers, a special, was out of this world. Don't think twice about making this reservation.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Andino's is a hidden gem. Their patio is behind the restaurant, hidden away. The service was fabulous, Ernie was so entertaining. The seafood stuffed portabella mushroom was incredible, big enough to share but so delicious I didn't want to. The veal parmasean was also good. Large helpings, thus a lot of doggie bags. The fried cannoli was also incredible, another dish that was sharable but I wish I could have eaten it all by myself. Four us ate dinner with dessert, we were not rushed and we made it to PPAC with time to spare.

Night on the Hill
Have eaten at many Italian restaurants in New England. Andinos rates as one of the better dining experiences. I look at the quality of food verses ambiance. Both myself and dining partner found every aspect of the meal to be excellent. A plus was the service by the wait staff attending to all aspects from start to finish.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was the first time dining at a restaurant on federal hill so I wasn't sure what to expect. We chose Andino's after reading the reviews on OpenTable and was pleasantly surprised they were accurate. We walked in and were immediately treated like we were regulars. The chicken parm and Lemoncello cake were phenomenal. The portions were large and delicious, beverage selection intriguing, and prices fair. I highly recommend Andino's for any occasion.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic service/memorable evening
This evening was fantastic, Wednesday night and it was great to see the energy. The service was perfect, very helpful getting us the right table, very attentive, and enjoyable. The food was sensational, and I enjoyed my swordfish while family members raved about the pasta/chicken dishes, and another remarked "Best Steak ever".
The evening was to celebrate a special family occasion. Barely had room for dessert, but had a nice surprise Birthday dessert served to table which was delicious.
The staff couldn't have made our evening more memorable. We will definitely go again and highly recommend Andino's for a lovely night out.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We just recently moved to Rhode Island and weren't too sure where to go for dinner, so thanks to open table mobile app we found this spot, Andino's. Definitely make reservations, it's small inside but does have patio seating in the back, Friday night on Federal Hill is very lively and so was this restaurant. The noise level was moderate, the service was pretty good despite the wait of about 45 minutes to an hour for our entrees but once we finally got our meals it was worth the wait! The portions are big and very filling, you will leave with a take home. I'd def recommended this place and will go again, just be prepared for the wait but it's worth it.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gret place for a great family meal - Sangria is the Best in Provi!
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a great time and fabulous
Always a great time and fabulous food. One of the best places on Federal Hill in Providence Rhode Island to dine at.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place was a gem. The service was excellent and the food even better. I strongly recommend the Veal Parmesan stuffed with eggplant...outstanding. I took my wife for our anniversary and the restaurant comped us a couple of drinks and put us at a great table by the front. Providence is know for great dining and Andino's certainly lived up to the reputation.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
excellent a little cramped for 4 guys (clients) but excellent nfood service location
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great birthday dinner
We celebrated my wife's birthday dinner at this restaurant.
My wife, my three kids, and I all had a fantastic time. The food was great, the service was great and the waitress got the entire restaurant to sing happy birthday to my wife
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Andino's Always Comes Through
The food, the service and atmosphere are consistently great at Andino's. This is my go to favorite on Federal Hill, they serve macaroni and red gravy like I remember from my childhood and always offer a variety of Italian specialties that never disappoint.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went to Federal Hill for Columbus Day parade and decided to have family Sunday dinner there and we were fortunate to have gotten a reservation on Open Table (of course) at the last minute. We arrived within 10 minutes of making the reservation on my phone and greeted by the host with a warm welcome as if he knew me! Although we have dined there a couple of times, I still can't remember his name but he is always friendly.
There were 6 of us and we all had a fabulous meal! Although not on the menu, I asked Sabrina our waitress if she would ask the chef to make me shrimp sergio, an amazing appetizer that you absolutely have to try!
Sabrina was attentive and did a great job!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
our anniversary dinner
Everything was amazing. We had the table by front window for two, waiter was the nicest guy ever. Wished us happy anniversary and his suggestions were perfect. He even treated us to a special dessert. Amazing night with my wife
10/13/2013 5:00:00 PM
nice place for groups
Group of six very good service nice wine recommendations.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was excellent and portions large. Big selection of Italian dinner items so everyone could find something to order. Nice wine list. Small neighborhood restaurant, so it fills up quickly. Making a reservation through Open Table was the only way we could have eaten there. Waiter was very friendly and the service was timely. We had a table in the front of the restaurant by the front window and bar area which was a mixed bag. Being able to look out the window on the busy street was entertaining, but the noise and crowd of people packing into the foyer/bar area hoping to get a table made our area quite loud and very cramped. The valet parking is included when you eat at Andino's, so make sure you use the valet. Parking is impossible.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice Italian place - fine service
I booked a table for 8 early on a Sunday evening. Our table was ready when we arrived, despite the restaurant being suprisingly full at that hour. Service was excellent throughout - the waiter was clearly experienced in handling such a crowd. The food itself was OK - I've had many more memorable Italian meals in Manhattan. The calimari was excellent, while the veal offerings were fair. Portions were generous throughout, and prices were reasonable. I would have welcomed some more recommendations concerning house specialties - every menu item seemed to have a 'special' Andino sauce, but none that we ordered seemed all that special. I look forward to a return visit with fewer guests and more time to explore what Andino's has to offer.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went with a party of 8 on a Friday night. Valet parking was great. The restaurant was full. Our table was waiting for us. Limited floor space so the tables tend to be a little crowded together. Our waitress, MJ, was great and very helpful. She made several good suggestions. Several people in the party shared dishes. No problem. Food was great. Service was outstanding. Looking forward to returning.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
our favorite restuarant!!
as always, Andino's restaurant was great! we celebrated both my and my husbands birthdays and our 30th wedding anniversary!! the staff made us feel welcome and offered us delicious desserts to commemorate these special occasions!! the food was spectacular as usual!! we travel an hour from Connecticut to dine here.. our favorite Italian restaurant by far!! we compare all other Italian eateries to Andino's.. and Andino's always wins!! would recommend this place to anyone who wanted great Italian food... a special thanks to MJ, our server, who was especially sweet to us..
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another "hill" gem
Andino's is a great place to have a terrific Italian meal. The service was very good along with the food. I would say it's small and tables are quite close together, so the noise level can get a bit high, but that shouldn't prevent you from going and enjoying!!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant was awesome and so was our waitress Sabrina
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service was outstandin
The food and service was outstanding. I would definitely go back.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I made reservations to celebrate
I made reservations to celebrate a birthday. We called because we were running late and the server was so nice and friendly. The food was amazing. We had apple cider sangria that was so delicious. All around amazing experience! We were the last table there but never felt rushed or like we were a bother...!!! We will definitely return!!!
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Favorite Federal Hill Restaurant
Our waiter Matt, was great and explained all of the ingredients in all of the specials and menu items and was great giving suggestions. The meal was fit for our visit and we got a bonus lunch with our take home food for the next day. We had 7PM reservations and were sat at our table as soon as we walked in.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious Federal Hill restaurant
Our first dining experience on Federal Hill was a winner. Took our college student son put with the family and were happy to have our reservation honored on time and get courteous service and delicious food. Everything we ordered was very well prepared.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
nice friendly italian restaurant
We were looking for a place to have dinner in Providence, after seeing a play in Woonsocket. Went to Andino's based on other reviewer comments we read. The food was well prepared, and the service was excellent. It is a small restaurant, so reservations are a must. They have free valet parking, which is a real bonus in downtown Providence (the valet saw us rise from our table to leave, and got our car before we even left the front door). The only downside for us was that we were seated at a single table in the bar area, by the front window, and being a fall evening, the location was a bit cold as it was near the entranceway of the restaurant. We will go back again, as the food was a great value, including a nice bottle of wine.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
True Italian cooking. The "rice ball" appetizer was amazing. the pasta excellent.The staff was most helpful and attentive. The valet parking was most appreciated as parking in this neighborhood is difficult.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, serrver and environment
We were fortunate to have Brian as our server, tremendously personable and capable and with a memory for the specials like you read about. The food was outstanding and obviously prepared with care. The atmosphere is authentic. All timing good, great place, will heading there again on regular Providence visits.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful little Gem, we've been here several times,each time the food has been a delight. Huge portions , we always bring leftovers home.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food great service. A bit snug as far as seating
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
First Class Dining!!!
We love it here. The wait staff are the best. Nothing negative to say about this wonderful restaurant.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was my first visit to this restaurant. The food was great and the waitress was knowledgeable and very friendly. And the sangria ..... outstanding!!!!!!!! We will be back soon.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
An Italian Diamond in the Rough
Andino's is probably one of Federal Hill's best kept secrets! It may not look as fancy from the outside as some of the other restaurants on the hill, but the food is amazing and the prices are terrific!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
My favorite federal hill restaurant
Andino's is my favorite place for Italian food in Providence. Came for an early dinner with my sister and we were in and out in 45 minutes. Great service, and the food was excellent as always.
