“Delicious and affordable”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Having stopped in Degraves Lane in my previous tour to Melbourne, I had to return here to try out some of the other places in this little piece of heaven. This time around I stopped in at Cafe Andiamo for a last meal in Melbourne. And what I had was not a disappointment.

Although i'd come specifically to have something Italian, I couldn't resist trying out their steak. It was cooked just the way I like it, and the side of fries and salad that accompanied it were ample in their portion size. The sauce was flavourful and steak perfect. My friends enjoyed the parpadelle with chicken, and antipasto platter.

Service was efficient and pleasant, although not being able to split the bill was a minor annoyance, it wasn't enough to spoil what was a very enjoyable meal.

“Cafe Andiamo”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Brilliant little cafe situated in a lane, in the heart of Melbourne's CBD. The coffee was the best we had in town. Food is just yummy. The staff are friendly, efficient, and run the operation as smooth as silk.

“Laneway cafe”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

I have been to Cafe Andiamo quite a few times. Generally it is a good place that is reasonably priced and provides tasty meals. I recommend the chicken and avocado pasta. the pasta's are good because you can choose what pasta you like, be it penne or risotto.
I do have to mention one visit however, when I was eating a pasta and found really a quite large piece of plastic in my meal. Given that I could have choked on it, I expected a bit more of a response from the waitress, like an apology. Her manner left me feeling a bit miffed for the rest of the meal, but to her credit, she took the dish off the bill. With good reason.
