1 Andiamo
322 Garfield St.

Summoning the energy to cook dinner is so much harder when you know you can just run down to Andiamo and have a baby spinach salad and a bowl of penne with spicy lamb sausage. Why bother turning on a burner when Andiamo feels just like home? Nestled in a renovated house planted on a quiet block downtown, Andiamo has the comfortable, familial feel so often missing from “family restaurants.” The tables are quite close, so it’s not uncommon to be caught peering lasciviously at another diner’s crispy duck legs (a reflection glinting from the path of drool down your chin). Never fear; you’re among friends. Just say, “How’s the duck?” And you’ll probably hear back, “Mmrprohggle!” That means “Delicious!” in MouthFull-ese.
