I had to laugh when I saw the "review" submitted by Mancini529. Apparently this girl doesn't have the slightest concept of courtesy or any business acumen for that matter. This is a small byob place; there is no corkage fee!, there is no

Food was good. The staff were extremely rude. My husband and I met old friends at this restaurant. We ordered apps, entrees and desserts. After dinner we paid our 144.00 bill and sat for a bit finishing our drinks and chatting.

This place is absolutely awful. If I could have given it less then 1 star I would have. We were going there for New Year's Eve dinner with a reservation for 8pm for a party of 8. Well we got there at 730 and were forced to wait outside in

It's my favorite restaurant. The food is absolutely wonderful. You have got to try their Caesar salad, it's out of this world. It's a small, intimate, friendly restaurant with great staff. The bill is always a pleasant surprise as it

We have been to Cafe Andiamo 40 times in the last 5 years and have had 40 "Outstanding Dinners". The owners, waiters (most of them are the same after 5 years which says something about the restaurant), and food are tremendous.\r

While the waiter was great and personable and food was above average, I will not return. Apparently 2 hours and 15 minutes is to long for a party of 8 to dine. The moment we hit two hours the Manager/Owner (Whomever the dark haired amazon

Friends from Johnston bragged about Cafe Andiamo. My recent visit was very disappointing. The service was terrible, had to ask for menus and utensils. I ordered shrimp scampi w/broccoli rabe over penne pasta. The shrimp were good, but

Cafe Andiamo is in my top three restaraunts in Rhode Island. The service is spectacular, Ricky,Rob, and Carson will wait on you hand and foot. The food is absolutely delicious. The portions are enormous and the prices are right. Where. Do you know where the owners come out and greet you and wait on you if need be. Get there asap.

My favorite restaurant in RI, and for those of us who live in the biggest little state, we know that is indeed saying something. I've been there with parties of anywhere from 2 to 12 people and in any situation, we were treated like part of the family there. Thank you very much to the owners because as a former waiter, I know how hard that is to accomplish. Viva Andiamo!!

My husband and I first started going to Cafe' Andiamo when it was open for lunch and had a huge deli case in the restaurant. They simply had the best sandwiches around! We would frequently make the drive from Richmond, RI to have lunch and peruse the deli case for take out items for dinner. What a treat!

Over the years we have seen Cafe' Andiamo transform itself into an amazing culinary experience unsurpassed by none. We have celebrated many special occasions at Andiamo- from romantic anniversary dinners to Christmas celebrations with 20 of our good friends. Everything has always been amazing and I am impressed every time! The food is out of this world, the wait staff friendly and knowledgeable, and the atmosphere aesthetically pleasing to the eye. We can't wait to celebrate the holidays with our family and friends at Andiamo again this year!

Pros: A fabulous dining experience

As the owner of Cafe Andiamo, I am profoundly embarrassed and saddened by the experience Pacinno62 had at my restaurant. I fully acknowledge that there is absolutely no way to make up for the fact that his grandmother's 85th birthday dinner was ruined that evening. It was a terrible, inexcusable error. Once again, I humbly apologize to Paccino62. I do object, however, to the odd reference made to our regulars. I simply cannot apologize for continuing to accommodate our most loyal customers; most of whom have become dear friends and have been visiting with us since the days we served lunch and only had three tables. To all of our many faithful supporters, thank you! Without you, we could not continue.

??The best kept secret? in Rhode Island is what I used to call it. About three or four years ago Caf Andiamo??s really was ??the best kept secret? in Rhode Island. I remember my family and I (a group of 7), going there twice a month. Those were the good old days. As time went on, it became more and more apparent that Andiamo??s was no longer a secret. It got to the point where reservations had to be made three to four weeks out. This made it difficult for busier people who usually book 10-12 days out, but it was still worth it. As it became busier, we noticed the quality slipping. About 6 months ago, we went to Andiamo??s and the food was awful and the service was worse. Could it be? The best spot in Rhode Island couldn??t keep up with this huge influx of business? We decided to take a break. Two visits like that in a row would have made the most loyal customer run in the opposite direction. That brings us to 4 weeks ago. It was at that point that we decided to bring my grandmother there for her 85th birthday. Andiamo??s was always her favorite and she never understood why we stopped going. So, we got the reservations for this past Saturday. Right on her birthday. Even with the 3-4 week notice, we still had to settle on a 7:30pm time slot (not easy for an 85 year old). Nevertheless, we were excited for our return. On Saturday we packed the coolers (BYOB) and headed off. When we got there, we were greeted by a younger gentleman. He asked my name and when I gave it, he said that we didn??t have reservations. I told him it was impossible and explained. He said there was nothing he could do. I asked him for the manager. He went in the back and when he returned he said that his manager told him that after I made the reservations, my ??secretary? called to change the day to Friday. Lmao?..I don??t have a secretary. I asked top speak to the manager. She finally came out and stuck to the secretary story. I told her that I don??t have one and I asked her why she wouldn??t call the person who made the actual reservations to see if they really wanted to switch. She had no answer. I asked for the owner and guess what??she was the owner. She then went to the back and returned 5 minutes later with a desk calendar, which she had obviously altered in the back office. On it, our name was erased on Saturday (with nobody filling the time slot) and we were penciled in on Friday (in the 5:00pm time slot). At this point my grandmother was confused and hungry and I was angry and shocked. She did nothing. She did offer to comp my wife and I a dinner some time. I told her that I didn??t need her money. I needed to celebrate a birthday. I wanted nothing but a place to sit. It never came and we had to leave. By the time we got to another restaurant and were served, my 85 year old grandmother was eating her main course at 9:30pm. I am a prominent figure in the public community who used to talk about Andiamo??s in seminars as the model of a great customer experience. Those days are long gone folks. It is very obvious that Caf Andiamo??s has their ??regulars? and that they don??t know how to handle the volume of business that an ??upscale? restaurant is able to. ??The best kept secret? is no longer a secret?.and it??s no longer a restaurant worth your time or money.

Just go, that's all I can say. The very best around. It easily beats the Providence establishments. This is an impeccable local place with a good variety of food. The Ceasar salad is wonderful as well as taglietelle pasta with veal and peas.!!

I'm not sure why this place isn't rated higher. Selfishly, I wish it would stay that way so our favorite restaurant isn't overrun! We are regulars here with friends & have had memorable meals. I would recommend any of the pasta dishes - truly al dente. My husband & I often travel to Italy and this is one of the only places we've eaten in all the U.S. where the pasta is prepared the way it ought to be. The menu is always changing & often includes chops & seafood. A few notes: it's BYOB so take advantage & enjoy something wonderful from your cellar. My guess is that with its recent upsurge in popularity it won't be long before they begin to offer their own wine selection. The owner, Christen, is delightful & they also do catering. They did 2 parties for us & we were thoroughly pleased.
