I visited Andiamo a couple of years ago on one of my regular visits to Cape Town and had a pasta dish that was truly memorable. On the trip I just had, I found myself in Cape Quarter again on a Sunday morning having read about the Sunday market and food mart. The shopping was good but the food stalls were a bit disappointing - but it gave me a chance to go back to Andiamo and see if the pasta dish i so enjoyed was still on the menu. My partner and I arrived at lunchtime and were welcomed and given a table with some sunshine (just what we need when getting away from the English winter). The courtyard location is very pleasant as well as being free from the wind. Drink orders were taken quickly and a bottle of sauvignon blanc, with ice on the side, and bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar arrived very promptly. The favourite pasta dish was still on the menu chicken strips with penne and broccoli in a gorgonzola cream sauce - absolutely the most delicious combination of flavours in a pasta dish that I have experienced (and I travelled the world almost non-stop for the best part of 30 years).
My wife had the green mussel spagetti (mussels with leeks, garlic, pesto, white wine, and cream) which she enjoyed, but didn't enthuse about. We will be experimenting to try and recreate this chicken pasta dish now that we are back in the UK.
