A longtime locals' favorite, Andiamo scores high marks for its friendly staff, consistently good food, and comfortable dining room. Produce from the farmers' market down the street adds to the seasonal surprises of this intimate northern Italian restaurant set inside a sweet cottage in the Railyard District. Start with the addictively delectable crispy polenta with rosemary and Gorgonzola sauce; move on to the white pizza with roasted garlic, fontina, grilled radicchio,
pancetta, and rosemary; and consider such hearty entrées as crispy duck legs with grilled polenta, roasted turnips, and sautéed spinach; or linguine with spicy grilled shrimp and olives in a white wine tomato cream sauce. There's a super wine list with varied prices. Save room for the chocolate pot de crème.

My dinner at Andiamo was without exaggeration the worst restaurant experience that I have ever had. My friend and I were completely ignored by the waiter who was busy speaking with other customers that he knew. Most of our interactions were with the hostess who treated us as if she were completed disgusted by us. We were dressed as well as everyone else in the restaurant and we barely spoke to her, so I have no idea what upset her. Maybe they want
only locals and tourists are not welcome. After getting our food, both of them ignored us. Their attitude was so unpleasant, we could barely eat. If I had to do it again, I would have walked out, something that I have never done. There was no one to complain to because no one cared. We later tried to call the manager. Guess what? The manager never called back because he doesn’t care either. There are so many good restaurants in Santa Fe. Go somewhere else.
