I come here quite often with my family and friends. The staff is always nice and accommodating. Their food is nice too. We’ll come back.
Food was really good. Polenta chips are tops, especially with Gorgonzola dip. Friendly wait-staff. Nice ambience. Have visited three times and will definitely go again.
Great service! waiter was extremely helpful with all our requests, including bring the heater closer to us.Food was delectable! Will definitely recommend and go back.
Great atmosphere, friendly service, wonderful food and wine. The menu offered a great range of pasta dishes, traditional and gourmet pizzas, and other options. We had a lovely dinner thank you.
Very nice pizza. I can't get over how good the dough is, it's so different to other pizzas I've had and the it was just a joy to squish between the teeth. The pumpkin ravioli was also good on the texture aspect, however, I thought that the sauce was too sweet given the sweetness of the pumpkin inside. It's a shame that the law doesn't prevent smokers outside the restaurant. For a long time I had to eat the pizza with a cigarette smoke flavour from outside. Maybe the staff could monitor this situation and close the doors. Overall, a very nice experience.
We sat at a table for 6 in a semi-outdoor location, which was very pleasant. The service was friendly, the food good, the portion sizes reasonable - a small pizza is fine for one person. The only (minor) glitch was that the one salad order took a lot longer to arrive than the pizzas and pastas. I had a glass of Italian pinot grigio, which was lovely - off-dry, and perhaps more of what we'd call a pinot gris style in Australia.
great food, lovely atmosphere and friendly service. Thank you Andiamo Trattoria - Kensington Street for another great night of dinning with friends. We look forward to heading back soon!
Overall, a good experience. The food was quite satisfying. For main, I ordered the tortellini boscaiola and a small sized margarita pizza. Wow! that Tortellini was amazing - really enjoy the tanginess of the dish. Service definitely needs work though - Ordered a glass of wine with my dishes, and it never arrived. Had to point it out in the bill, or else I would've been charged for it.
Andiamo Trattoria has a lovely Ambience and was well patronised which is always a good sign. Food was yummy, service not bad but sitting in the shade outside was a little chilli! A small thing we should of asked for the heaters to be turned on but a small thing overall. Would happily go back!
Service staff were pleasant,but slow. Requested second bottle of wine,but served late and we have had to take away the bottle after consuming quarter. Veal was hard to eat. Left quarter eaten. Mussels and Spinach Fritters were excellent. Pasta was nice. Risotto was tasty,but not creamy. Credit to the Service Staff,particularly the gentleman with whom we settled the bill. Left 10% Tips
