Romantic dinner on the riverfront! Food was delicious. Service was super slow though, especially for a Tuesday evening. Ordered chicken de pollo. Bread brought to the table before the main dish was also delicious. Overall a great experience.

Andiamo is a great riverside Italian Restaurant in the RenCen, facing the river and the Canadian skyline.
It is pretty large, with sexy mood spot-lighting, Italian Modern decor befitting the rest of the concrete and glass motif of the RenCen, with intimate booths furnished with tall pig-sude coverings in dark greys, and stylish bar chairs in black. You walk into the bar area, then past a small stage, and into the main dining room. They also have a side banquet room.
The food is decidedly northern Italian faire, with offerings of anti-pasta, pasta, griglia, pesce, and other typical tuscan and piemonte type dishes, as well as other regional favorites.
We had a large group of 13, and we came late, after 10pm, but they accomodated us with good pleasure and convivial service. Appetizers for our group included Bruschetta, Mozzarella Bufala di Caprese, and Salsiccia with roasted sliced bell peppers.
All the dishes looked good, and mine was no exception. It was Capellini al Salmone, which was two sliced filets nicely roasted into a combination crisp and tender consistency, over a bed of Angel Hair infused with mushrooms and spinach, garlic, olive oil and wine. There was a bit too much olive oil for my liking, but otherwise it was tasty.
Desserts were about 5 choices, including the classic mascarpone and their award winning TiraMisu, and a double chocolate torte/mousse. They also had Hazelnut Gelato, and Wild Berry Sorbetto.
Ambiance was excellent, service was professional, and the food was quite good. Prices, given this setting and view, were high but not unexpected. Most entrees including pasta were in the $20 - $35 range. We had a half dozen bottles of their own Andiamo Sicilian wine, which was unlabelled as to variety, but tasted like a nice light Valpolcella that went well with most everyone's dish.
We all had good food, I heard no complaints, and the dinner was enjoyable for all.
