HEMENWAY’S Seafood Restaurant
BASTA Italian Restaurant
ANDINOS Italian Restaurant
Stepping into Andino’s is like being back in the 1940’s. Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra are staples on the sound system and the moody lighting of our classic italian restaurant combined with the red and white wine, the animated conversations, and the red sauce make one feel like this could be Brooklyn, or New York’s Little Italy 70 years ago. The feel of being back in time often is one’s impression as soon as you walk in the door. Let’s just say this place is a classic and a must visit.
