Andiamo Ristorante ~ "Foodie" Friday 10/5/18

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

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 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. On the Primi Piatti menu - there's Orecchiette alla Boscaiola - orecchiette pasta sautéed with homemade ground pork sausage, mushrooms and organic spinach in a light spicy tomato cream sauce...and Zuchhini Pasta - strips of fresh zucchini that are sautéed with a mix of bell peppers, mini heirloom tomatoes, carrots and green onions in a basic and garlic olive oil sauce.  The Secondi Piatti menu has Salmon al Forno with baked salmon served over a Kalamata olive sauce topped with kale and baby argula... and Pollo al Limone - chicken breast sautéed with fresh garlic, lemon zest and oregano in a white wine sauce and served with roasted potatoes.


To finish off the evening, the Dolci menu has Profiteroles - cream puffs filled with lemon custard and covered with white chocolate...Cheesecake al Liquore - a delightful cheesecake with Irish Whiskey … and Millefoglie - baked puff pastry sheets layered with strawberries and Italian custard.


If you aren't in the area and can't get to Andiamo Ristorante, click this link to get their recipe for Pasta Mista and bring a taste of Italy right to your own table.   While that's cooking, watch this video of our local food critic Rob Balan and his review of Andiamo...

Buon Appetito!

Hello Dorie - I can sense the attention to detail at Andiamo. Obviously that's important.   Including a recipe is a nice touch.

I love good authentic Italian cuisine. It is so flavorful and not strong or overbearing.

Hi Dorie... that calamari fritti sounds divine! So does the zucchini pasts! As for those desserts, all I can say is "yes, please."
