Arguably the most authentic Italian restaurant in town, Daniela Marcone's restaurant serves bistro comfort-food dishes inspired by her own family recipes growing up in Naples. The entire experience, from the décor and service to every bite of food, is presented as it would be in Italy. Andiamo is decorated simply with an eye towards quaint. It is located in a strip mall but do not let that deter you. Many diners refer to it as romantic but foodies in the know will tell you that the food here is the closest you'll get to 'real' Italian food. Bread is served before your meal and is delicious on its own. If you are a vegetarian or have gluten free dietary needs, Andiamo has a selection of menu items just for you. Andiamo changes up their menu according to the seasons so when you are there be sure to look for featured dishes. For example, in the fall they serve their homemade pumpkin ravioli in a homemade brown butter sage sauce. Seafood, beef, and chicken selections do not disappoint. Lady Bird Johnson was a regular, and daughter Luci Baines Johnson still frequents the restaurant as one of many long-time regulars.
- Best Restaurants: "Don't let Andiamo's location turn you away. Andiamo receives high praise from Austinites because of its excellent cuisine even though many will tell you it is located in one of the most UN-scenic areas of Austin."
- Recommended as Best Restaurants Because: Everything from the bread to desserts is made in-house, and an impressive wine list curated by certified wine sommelier Pier Giorgio Manna.
