Bringing another signature element of Detroit to Downtown Las Vegas, Joe Vicari’s Andiamo Italian Steakhouse opened its first out-of-state location inside the D Las Vegas Friday, February 1. The D is excited to welcome the popular restaurant, named Metro Detroit’s “Best Italian,” to the newly renovated hotel and casino.
“Andiamo is all about family tradition and delicious food, and it’s going to be a great addition to downtown Las Vegas. We really look forward to sharing another taste of Detroit with locals and tourists who visit the D,” said Derek Stevens, co-owner and CEO of the D.
A favorite of Detroiters for more than 20 years, Andiamo has nine locations in Detroit and is the largest independently owned and operated restaurant group in the city. From homemade Italian breads and award-winning sauces to handmade pasta, Joe Vicari’s philosophy, originating from the late Master Chef Aldo Ottaviani, is to buy the freshest ingredients and prepare them from scratch every day. The restaurant is proud to partner with the nation’s top butchers to offer the finest products including Pat LaFrieda and Stockyard Premium beef, all natural Strauss® Lamb and Veal and premium free range chicken that is hormone and antibiotic free.
Owner of Andiamo Italian Steakhouse Joe Vicari said, “We’re excited to introduce guests of the D to our signature dishes. Our passion is quality products and we believe that when great food is paired with excellent service and atmosphere, lasting memories are created.”
Menu items include fine cuts of meat, traditional pasta dishes, tasty seafood entrees and more for a delectable Italian meal.
• Appetizers. Starters range from Grilled Portabella Mushrooms smothered in Andiamo’s signature Zip sauce and zesty Calamari to the Andiamo Grande Meatball – a delicious baseball-sized meatball made with fresh ricotta cheese and homemade tomato sauce.
• Steak. Guests will enjoy traditional steakhouse cuts such as Bone-In NY Strip, Porterhouse and Filet Mignon as well as the signature Andiamo Tomahawk. Just right for sharing, this 32-ounce long bone rib-eye is charred to perfection and served with choice of savory steakhouse sauces: Andiamo Signature Zip Sauce, Cabernet Shallot Demi-Glace or Balsamic Glaze with Cipollini Onions.
