You probably know about this place already… so I’ll keep it brief. I’ve had a variety of experiences at this restaurant, partly because this is a chain restaurant that is privately owned. So the Royal Oak and Sterling Heights locations are very different from each other, with different perks. Andiamo is known for quality Italian food, and I’ll admit that I’ve been happy with my food here almost every time. The highlight experience was at the Sterling Heights location, where I ordered whitefish and family style sides: mashed potatoes and vegetables. OK, it doesn’t sound that interesting, but the actual food quality and preparation was flawless. While the bill was very expensive, due to the family style sides that had to be ordered separately because nothing came with the pricey main dishes, no one complained. This is probably due, in part, to the fact that one person in our party had a gift card to eat some of the cost. At the Royal Oak location, I had one magical happy hour with filet medallion in zip sauce, prawns on polenta and half off wine. (Note: When I went back, they had traded their amazing happy hour specials for a much more boring selection of bruschetta). When there’s a gift card involved OR they get their previous happy hour specials back, I will return. Until then, it’s a bit too expensive for my dining style, though I always know I’ll get a good meal there.
