A forced stay at ORD on New Year's Eve left us with little to choose from. I have learned in my travels that hotel restaurants are usually overpriced with poor "industrialized" food, served to you by insolent youth. Not so at Andiamo! While yes, you can order high cost meals, the menu is diverse enough so that you can find less expensive fare to suit most tastes.

I stuck with pasta, tortellacci (essentially tortellini) in a nice red sauce w/ olives ($18). My wife had the Chicken Parmesan ($25). The tortellacci serving size was healthy, but not what I'd consider large for most American eateries. My wife's meal was certainly larger. Not that serving size is the top priority... I'd rather have a little excellent food than a pile of... well, you get my drift.

Our server (Vesella) was super. She did what she could to make our dinner as good as it good be. Cheerful and efficient, she'd be a credit to any restaurant.

You will surely see reviews stating that the food is overpriced. On a world scale, the food here is excellent and is priced appropriately for the situation. While we were trapped, we certainly didn't feel that way. If I find myself on that side of airport security or have a longish layover, I'll do the quick walk over to eat again.
