Andiamo Ristorante Italiano
2521 Rutland Dr (Burnet & Rutland)
Austin, TX 78758
Owner and Naples, Italy, native Daniela Marcone is at the helm of Andiamo, an unassuming strip-mall spot where the focus isn't on keeping trend with the hip eateries of downtown and East Austin, but serving locals her authentic and tasty family recipes. And she's doing something right -- this place is always full of regulars, who rave about the linguine cozze e calamari, served with calamari, black mussels, fresh tomato, and a light but spicy white wine sauce. Vegetarians will be more than satisfied here, too, especially with options like pumpkin ravioli.
