ANDIAMO RISTORANTE http://www.andiamoitaliano.com
Andiamo features fresh ingredients that are purchased from local farmers markets. Their menu is seasonal in a traditional European-styled course which you will be able to pair with a prestigious selection of Italian wines. Their success has been attributed to their commitment to offering authentic Italian recipes. Owner Daniela Marcone came from Naples in 2005 joining the Andiamo family as its General Manager. Since that time, Daniela is now the proud owner and works hard at enhancing the overall Andiamo experience. In addition to a delicious Italian menu, once a month they offer a special wine dinner at a fixed price. This month’s dinner is on the 27th - here is what you’ll find on the menu for that special night. The Antipasto: Nido di Polenta con Crema di Robiola (polenta with a creamy cheese sauce)...The Primi Piatto: Risotto al Barbera ( risotto in Casalone Barbera wine)...The Secondi Piatto: Brasato di Manzo al Barbera (braised beef in Casalone Barbera wine)...The Dolce: Torta di Nocciole (hazelnut torte). Each course is paired with a Calsalone wine. And, as a special guest that evening, winemaker Casalone will be at the restaurant. Remember the old Italian movies where Sophia Loren would be waving her hand and saying “Andiamo, Andiamo!” which means “get moving” So, if you’re in the mood for authentic and delicious Italian food,' get moving' to Andiamo Ristorante!
