Heard many things about this restaurant so gave it a go. We were some of the only people there at 4:30. Cons: Water had floaties in it and the waitress could have been more attentive.
Pros: all the food was great; ordered fried mozzarella, the warm antipasto plate with 2 stuffed mushrooms, 2 clams casino, and 2 specialty clams, chicken parm was plentiful and delicious, shrimp fra diablo was spicy and good, and drinks were cold.
Overall a good meal and would go again.

We have been going here for 30 yrs and the food is the best around. Service a bit too quick as we were in and out in an hour which was not ideal.

my linguine vongole was outstanding and generous portion... could have gone with Half-plate if that were an option. Dinner mate had the veal francaise... also awesome and generous serving.

The food and service are terrific especially the Steak ala Mama. I always order the O'glio as a side pasta which is delicious. If you like fig, order the fig martini! It's amazing.

The portions are big but NOT GOOD, food is very spicy, and I like spice. Had Tripe and had to sent it back, the Calamari was burnt and the Chicken Marsala was anything but Chicken Marsala, same with the Chicken Parm. Extremely noisy and tables are very close together, I'm surprised that it isn't a fire hazard.
The staff is very nice but they look overwhelmed, and they have a hard time moving around the very close tabels

My absolute favorite federal Hill and Providence restaurant. I have been coming here and bringing new people since the late 1980's. Well worth the trip from Boston. It may amuse local folks to know that their legendary Mayor Buddy sent me here the first time.

Excellent food and a sweet and entertaining server (picture the perfect Italian mother urging you to eat all of your vegetables.). The restaurant is a little loud but only because it is a very happy crowd and seems to be popular with adult groups and families. The Steak Andino is fantastic! Peppers, pepperoni and artichoke hearts seemed unusual for a steak but it was very tasty. Tiramisu was also good. We would recommend this restaurant and would definitely return when in the area.

Went for dinner with a group of 6 on a Saturday night before PPAC. Biggest hassle was the 15 minutes it
took to go from 95 up Atwells Ave to the valet station. Service, food, and drinks were all excellent. Waitress and kitchen were very accommodating of special requests. Restaurant is kind of loud, but not overly so. Not sure it's the place for a romantic dinner, but we had a great time.

3rd time visiting... chicken parmigiana was great as usual.. pasta was very watery... fried mozzarella was more like a mozzarella grill cheese cut in wedges... changed it from last visit I think , not a fan of it...

The service was great, they were very accommodating. Had a reservation for 7p and my friend and I showed up early thinking we could grab a drink at the bar but that was packed so we asked for them to seat us early and they did. The food was amazing, reminded me of little Italy/ Arthur ave in New York. Highly recommend the Andino’s chicken special, so phenomenal!

Great Italian meal at Andinos! We enjoyed the calamari and artichokes for appetizers. The artichokes were fried in a light batter with a lemon sauce. They were delicious. The fried calamari with banana peppers was great. We had four people in our party and everyone enjoyed the appetizers. The waitress was wonderful. She was knowledgeable and recommended the Frank Sinatra sangria, which I loved. She also recommended different entrees. I had the chicken picatta, which was amazing. My husband had the lobster ravioli. He truly enjoyed them. A couple that we went with had baked stuffed shrimp and a pasta dish. The portions were very big. I had left overs. Everyone throughly enjoyed their meals, and were making plans to return. Andinos is a Great restaurant with a very welcoming atmosphere. I highly recommend it, you won’t be disappointed.

Food was great but my specific table was crammed very tightly between two other tables. I was not comfortable and it really took away from the otherwise excellent meal. If they remove just 1 table in the place to make a little more space for the others it would alleviate the problem.
