Andiamo! Restaurant Review: It’s difficult to find good food in certain corners of San Diego County, but thankfully Tierrasanta has Andiamo! The first hint that we will like Javier Ugarte’s family-style restaurant comes when fresh-baked rosemary focaccia and an accompanying chunky tomato-basil dip hits the table. Artichoke hearts stuffed with goat cheese and walnuts in a brown butter sage sauce make for a nice starter. Or try the flash-fried Brussels sprouts with pancetta, creamy pomodoro sauce and walnuts. Specialties include the garlicky portobello scampi, and the prosciutto and fig flatbread. Duck breast rests on a bed of wild mushroom ravioli and is adorned with a port-cranberry reduction. Ugarte's tender veal scallopine in a lemon caper sauce is another winner. And like all good Italian spots, Andiamo! serves a mean tiramisu.
