Used to be one of my favorite restaurants but the last two times I've dined here, the chicken has been dry and inedible. I actually thought that perhaps the Chef-owner was not there those two evenings but LO and behold, he came out of the kitchen! Certainly not the reliable high-end dining spot I remember. Boo hoo ...

Lovely authentic chef-owned Italian restaurant with daily unique specials, elegant and attentive service, and a quiet, relaxed atmosphere. Loved the food and the setting. Unlike so many. List places today, Andrea's provided an environment in which it was easy to have a conversation with friends.

We love Italian food and have wanted to try Andrea's for a long time. After receiving a gift certificate from my Brother, we decided to go and take family for my birthday celebration. The first thing we noticed was the fact that it was busy on a Monday. Many of the people there were regulars which was encouraging. The chef came out and spoke with many of them and at times delivered the food himself.

We had several of the many specials that night. The Snapper, Ravioli, Soup D'jour, as well as the Pasta Dishes made with house made pasta were all wonderful. The wine list is extensive and well priced.

All in all a great evening.... we will be back.

At 60+ I have had my fair share of different kinds of ravioli. I had the four cheese ravioli and it by far was the BEST ravioli I have ever had. My wife had the short ribs and it too was fabulous.

Met the owner and saw his passion for his resturant.

I give it a 10+

Food was great. The room has no windows and there is no decore. Service was good

We loved Andrea's. It was our first time as we were visiting Sarasota. We were running late for the opera and asked to have the food brought out quickly. It was. Service was careful, the owner was very accommodating and everything was fantastic. This is some of the best Italian food we've had. I had the duck ragu and my husband had the gnocchi. Bellisimo! I hope we get a chance to return.

This is by far the best, most consistently good authentic Italian restaurant in the sarasota area! We've been coming here for years. The chef, Andrea, is outstanding. Service is great. Waiters are friendly and helpful. My husband loves the veal dishes. Fish and veggies are prepared to order. And the pasta so fresh .......
I recommend any special. Veal Gorgonzola is a treat! Eggplant appetizer, just thinking about it makes my mouth water.
Enjoy dinner at Andreas, we always do!

Very reliable. Andreas is out of their Longboat Key restaurant which allows even more focus on the original locale. In addition to a fairly broad set of menu options, there were a number of interesting specials. Made it very hard to choose!

Service was lacking, food was good. Too dark - everything black.

Very slow service as another couple in the room received all of the attention from the waiters and the manager. I am known at other dining places and see how others may see there at what I observed at this place.

Outstanding food served promptly and hot. One minor glitch that was resolved other than our server. Our server was not up to par with the quality of the food.
