Booked our birthday party of three for lunch and wanted Sunday at 11:30 and was told there wasn't a table available until noon which I assumed meant that they were already busy even though I booked a month in advance.

The service, wine list and Italian cuisine was outstanding. All of the choices sounded so wonderful, it was difficult to choose. Would go back in a heartbeat

We were able to sneak in a 2nd date night during our family vacation and came to Andrea, and are really glad we did. The food was amazing, with really good service as well.

Terrace seating is first come, first serve - worth arriving early! We had Melissa as our server, and she was phenomenal.... More
