I came her with a group of about 10 for brunch on a Sunday. The restaurant was full, but not overly crowded. We waited at the Host stand for probably about 10 minutes before anyone even greeted us (and we had called ahead to let them know we were coming). Once we were seated, it took at least 20 minutes...

Cannot figure out why Andover restaurants are almost universally poor (exception: Yella), but Andolini's continues the losing streak. Dim, lousy drinks, poor service, and ordinary chow at expensive prices make this one to avoid.

My husband and I have heard rave reviews of Andolini's, so we decided to give it a try. Sorry to say that we were disappointed. The waitress had lots of tables and we felt like we were bothering her. We waited a long time to order drinks and again for food. Then the appetizer and salads came out two minutes... More

Excellent service and delicious food. We had a party of 14 and the staff did a wonderful job taking care of everyone. The waitress went above and beyond to serve us quickly. Our thanks to the waitress and chef for meeting the gluten free needs of one of our guests. We have no complaints!

I choose this restaurant for a dinner date with my daughters. Not impressed with the service and the food was okay Food presentation is poor for a "high end place" my drink was watered down because the mixer was flat (that was their excuse) I am sorry I chose this place for our dinner night. By the way dessert was... More

The food here is wonderful. Lots of interesting dishes. The atmosphere is comfortable with a fun bar area. The food is so good that I had them cater my office party. Everyone raved about the cuisine.

We stopped in after googling restaurants around Andover. We randomly selected Andolini's. Out waitress was very nice. Dinner arrived pretty quick. It feels very small and intimate, yet has 2 different dining rooms and a cozy bar area. We will try to stop here the next time we are in the area!

We had a reservation for last night at 6:30. My first clue was the place was empty. Second clue was a hostess that couldn't really answer our questions about a potential rehearsal dinner we were inquiring about. Third clue was the disappearing waiter. While friendly, he barely paid attention to us; twice, we had to ask another waitress to please... More

Decent food, friendly staff, can't complain. Some customers are pretentious but can't blame Andolinis for that. Nice burger joint next door.

I love the atmosphere and it feels like you are sitting in someone's cozy house. I attended a large group dinner there and we were given two huge back rooms. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The bar offered many good craft drinks and a good selection of wines by the glass. Everything the kitchen served came out hot... More
