Here's why I love Da Andrea. The young owners have a fresh attitude toward food, making fabulous pastas, wonderful seafood (try the octopus and the calamari), and always fresh fish. The prices are totally reasonable, and the atmosphere, if a bit crowded, is pleasant and informal. The lamb shank is worth getting, but the other meats are take or leave in my opinion. Small dessert list is good. The wine list isn't profound, but this isn't a profound restaurant: it's just buonissimo!
