Tomato risotto

Andiamo’s new set menu is a delicious celebration of autumn

While the calendar officially reads autumn, the long, warm days of summer remain, so naturally it’s to one of our favourite Herne Bay haunts that we flock. As beloved for its delicious food as it is for its coveted outdoor tables that get the best of the late afternoon sun, Andiamo is the perfect place to mark the changing of seasons, and now, the stalwart eatery is giving us the perfect excuse to lock in a long lunch.

Harnessing the spirit of autumn, Andiamo has created a celebratory lunch menu with the fabulous Vavasour wines in mind. Available now, and running for a limited time only, the seasonal set menu will be available from Wednesdays to Sundays between 12pm and 3pm, and for a modest $40 per person, will include a glass of Vavasour’s award winning 2023 Sauvignon Blanc on arrival, followed by two delicious courses comprising Andiamo’s iconic focaccia with red pepper and parmesan butter, and your choice of market fish with ajo blanco, grape, and pine nut, or the tasty tomato risotto with soffritto, stracciatella, and basil. And if you’re feeling indulgent, for an additional $9 you can finish on something sweet with a ‘Tiramisu bambina’ (a classic tiramisu in mini size).

And for those who can’t make lunch, a curated selection of Vavasour’s finest wines will be on offer — no matter the hour, to complement your dining experience. Four beautiful pours, all inspired by the nuances of Marlborough’s Awatere Valley, are available for a limited time.
