Menu

Andante’s menu serves Italian and Italian-inspired food. They serve classic Italian dishes as well as some Italian-inspired dishes that have a unique flair you’ll only find here. Some of our favorite menu items are:

Appetizers

  • Warmed Brie
    • Served with berries and a selection of crackers, finished with sweetened vinaigrette
  • Italian Style Polenta
    • House-made polenta seared in olive oil and Kosher salt, then topped with a medley of Roma tomatoes, red onion, fresh basil, and feta. Finished with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar
  • Mussels with Tomato
    • Mussels sautéed in tomatoes, garlic, and white wine
  • Mushrooms in Red Wine
    • Cremini mushrooms sautéed in Chianti with garlic

Soups and Salads

  • Grapefruit Prosciutto Salad
    • Fresh Romaine tossed with shaved Prosciutto, fresh grapefruit pieces, green onion, croutons and raspberry vinaigrette, then finished with feta cheese
  • Homemade Tomato Basil with Cream Soup

Entrees

  • Andante’s Lasagna
    • Homemade marinara, Ricotta, mozzarella, shredded Parmesan, lean ground beef, and fresh Italian seasoning. The homemade marinara has a delicious spice to it!
  • Tuscan Seafood Stew
    • Prawns, scallops, cod, clams, and mussels in a base of fresh garlic, celery, parsley, onion, and tomatoes with white wine and stock. Served with a grilled baguette. This is a light, yet filling, option.
  • Fire Pasta with Chicken
    • Spicy and tangy Parmesan cream sauce on top of angel hair pasta and specially seasoned and breaded chicken. This dish is very spicy, but the spice does not overpower the other flavors.
  • Chicken Piccata
    • Thinly sliced chicken breast, breaded and pan fried. Served on a bed of angel hair pasta with lemon, white wine, and capers. A lighter, yet still very flavorful, dish.
