Location: MiMo District
Address: 5600 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL 33137
Meal type: Lunch and Dinner
Cuisine: Italian-American
Ambiance: Casual 
Background music: The sounds of the Miami streets
What to wear: Come as you are. Even date night is casual here. Sneakers are cool and so are short shorts (if that’s your thing).

What to expect: There is definitely a relaxed vibe at Andiamo. The glass building was once The General Tire of Miami, and from inside the converted building you can sit on high chairs and feel the heat from the oven. Outdoor seating can accommodate larger groups at their picnic tables, couples in tables for two, and groups of any other size.

The Menu: You will find an extensive list of pizzas, naturally. However, they also serve salads, paninis, and other appetizers. The pizzas are offered in three sizes from 10 to 16 inches. With names like Popeye and Godfather, you can expect these pizza pies will deliver a pop of flavor.

What to order: We tried a little bit from every side of the menu, just for you! Here’s what we loved best.

New Yorker: Nothing better than when simple pizza is made perfectly. This classic pie has a semi-sweet tomato sauce and is loaded with mozzarella, Parmesan, extra virgin olive oil, and basil. Go for the large pie on this one unless you want to fight for that last slice.

Prosciutto Panini: Homemade focaccia bread is pressed thin and is so crunchy over the stringy texture of the fresh mozzarella. There is a ton of prosciutto in this one. If you are sharing a pizza with bae, you can still squeeze in a few bites of this panini. It’s got so much flavor that you don’t want to skimp on this one.

Nunni’s Homemade Meatballs: This. Is. Life. Two large meatballs are served in a plastic bowl and topped with Andiamo’s sauce, ricotta cheese, and fresh basil. This dish is small enough so you can go for the large pie, and you still get to try the meatballs.

How to score a table: Weeknights can get pretty busy. While they don’t take reservations, even if you had to wait, you’ll be glad you did.
