Santa Fe's culinary arts scene is sizzling so when you pack for your trip, make sure to bring your appetite!
Consider yourself a foodie? Santa Fe is a food lover's paradise. Ask the locals to name their favorite Santa Fe restaurants and you'll end up with a lengthy list of worthy choices. Innovative Southwestern fare created by award-winning chefs and hearty New Mexico dishes such as breakfast burritos and green chile stew are reason enough for Santa Fe to have earned a prominent place on the world's culinary map. If you're hungry for creative contemporary cuisine or Asian, French, Italian, Indian or Middle Eastern cuisine, you'll find them all here as well.
New Mexicans love their chile and it isn't the kind with beans that cowboys eat! New Mexican chile is spicy, delicious and unlike anything you've ever tasted. When you come to Santa Fe and your server asks if you want "red or green?" this refers to the kind of chile you'd like served over enchiladas, chile rellenos or other staples of New Mexican fare. When in doubt, you can always answer "Christmas" and you'll get to try both!
Dining at Andiamo is
a simple experience.
We prepare the finest, local and seasonal ingredients a la minute with the utmost care and respect. Our menu is inspired by Italian cuisine, but as food is born of the region, we try to stay true to our relationships with local growers. For that reason, we've continuously nurtured a strong connection between the Santa Fe Farmers Market and our kitchen -- melding indigenous foods whenever possible, with key Italian imports. We crave these earthy, effortless flavors long after the meal has ended.
Eating sustains more than the body. Dining at Andiamo inspires conversation and evokes memories. That's why we see Andiamo as a collective experience for people who love food. Our staff is genuinely happy to work with our customers. At the end of the day, we want our guests to feel better for having eaten here.
Home to Andiamo since 1995, our historic building offers indoor and seasonal patio dining. For some it's an everyday place, for others it marks special occasions. For everyone who comes, it's a gathering place that nourishes the body and soul.
