I might do a full post for our recent trip, but I felt a separate thread for our experience at Andiamo was warranted. A large group of us went out last weekend for 4 days, in part to celebrate my 40th birthday. I wanted to have a fancy dinner at a nice steakhouse, and originally settled in on Gordon Ramsay's at Paris. However, they weren't being terribly accommodating about our "large" group of 12 and wanted an upfront deposit and offered only a limited menu due to our size. After dealing with a less than straightforward process for a simple dinner reservation, we called Andiamo and they took the reservation without blinking an eyelash, and frankly I'm quite happy it worked out that way. The atmosphere and service were nothing short of fantastic, with an old Vegas decor and white jacket/black tie attired staff. Special thanks to John and Mergim who attended to our every need. The food was equally wonderful. We ordered a sampling of appetizers, including a plate of assorted meats, cheeses, and olives which was practically a meal itself and a dish of Italian sausages in red sauce that was also delicious. Rounding out the appetizers was a creamy lobster bisque, calamari, and maybe a few others that slip my mind (the benefit of a larger group was certainly that we were able to try many items). Between courses everyone received a small dish of angel hair (or possibly capellini) in a rich vodka sauce. Very flavorful, and a nice way to ensure all then guests got something Italian as part of the experience. The entrees left little to be desired. While there was less sharing, everyone seemed to be pleased with their choices. I went with the 10oz filet, with their "zip" sauce and was more than happy. The steak was cooked flawlessly, and the buttery zip sauce added a unique flavor. Other guests ordered a variety of steaks and sides, including crab legs, pasta dishes, and of course the massive 32oz tomahawk bone-in rib eye. All of the accompanying sides were tasty too (everything from baked potatoes to lobster Mac and cheese). I had a complimentary birthday desert, something akin to a tieramesu. Very rich, but still not to heavy. Keeping in mind that there were 12 of us, and we ordered at least one bottle of wine over $100 and had numerous cocktails as well, we were pleasantly surprised to see a bill of around $1,100.00. Considering the high quality of food and service, this seemed to represent one of the best values in Vegas. Even Frankie Scinta (front man for the house act at the D) stopped by to say hello (well, I stopped him truth be told; I knew him from many years ago...). All said and done, I cannot recommend Andiamo enough. Quality, price, atmosphere and service were all home runs.
