It's been several years since I've written about this restaurant and I felt it was time to re-introduce you! Under new management this authentic Italian restaurant is even better (if that is possible) and loved as a go-to restaurant for so many. If your taste buds are screaming for Italian food you must try this recommendation out for this week-end!
ANDIAMO RISTORANTE https://andiamoitaliano.com/
Andiamo Ristorante is known in North Austin for serving authentic Italian dishes. When the current owner, Daniela Marcone purchased Andiamo and started transforming it. It became a symbol of Italian culture with an updated classic menu and seasonal Italian food using the freshest local ingredients whenever possible and traditional Italian recipes with no compromising. Daniela herself visits the local farmers markets a couple of times a week to make sure their seasonal menus highlight only the best local ingredients. Everything you eat and drink at Andiamo's is served as if you were in Italy. Even the wine list features wines from small Italian producers. Daniela even travels home to Italy every year so she is kept up to date on Italian culture and food.
Here is a sampling of their menu....On the Antipasti menu there's Zuppa alle Vongole with clams sauteed in a lght spicy white wine sauce served with Andiamo bread...Calamari Fritti is fried calamari with sea salt and Prosciutto e Melone - melon slices wrapped with prosciutto di Parma and topped with arugula and EVOO.
