Andolini’s, Andover

Andolini’s is a moderately priced Italian restaurant in Andover Center. I really enjoyed the ambiance of the candlelit lounge and the spacious wood bar. The twinkle lights in the dining room set the merry atmosphere. The menu has a great selection of Italian dishes and is filled with family style salads, pizzas and pastas.

The kitchen was partially open and had knife and kitchen stencils.

We started off with a glass of syrah and chianti and our server then started us off with bread with oil, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.

I ordered the Crunchy & Spicy Chick Peas for $4. They were soft on the inside, lightly crispy on the outside and highly addictive. I love fried chickpeas and would order these again.

The family style La Familigia Salad was $5 per person and had a light vinaigrette and fresh cherry tomatoes.

In every nook and cranny of the mushroom ravioli was the flavor of the truffle & parmigiano. It was unbelievably yummy and I really liked that the ravioli was handmade with bits of mushrooms throughout ($18).

The chicken parmesean with ziti was very hearty. The breaded cutlet was covered several times over with melted cheese and parsley ($18). I liked the flavor of the fresh tomato sauce on the pasta.

The service was warm, the food was excellent and the ambiance was comfortable and homey.Andolini's on Urbanspoon
