Andiamo Fenton, Downtown Fenton, MI — April 11, 2019
While the restaurant has been serving guests since early in February, today’s ribbon cutting ceremony at Andiamo Fenton signaled the official opening of the fine dining establishment in downtown Fenton. Local and State officials gathered to congratulate the Vicari Family at the beautiful facility in the Horizon building on the corner of W. Silver Lake Rd and N. Leroy Street.
In 1989 when Andiamo opened its first Italian restaurant, the goal was simple – deliver fine Italian cuisine by using the freshest seasonal ingredients and prepare them from scratch each and every day. This goal set by the late Master Chef Aldo Ottaviani was achieved and as a result, Andiamo exceeded all expectations, expanding to eight metro Detroit locations. Andiamo has never strayed from its founding principles and continues to provide exceptional service and authentic Italian cuisine prepared by hand every day.
Family Patriarch, Founder, and CEO Joseph Vicari attended today’s ceremony. Joe spoke about the Fenton community. “A few years ago we purchased a home on Silver Lake, we love the Fenton area and have enjoyed watching the community grow. When presented with this opportunity to place a restaurant downtown, we felt the timing was right.” Joe’s wife Rosalie is chief operations officer of the Joe Vicari Restaurant Group and son Dominic is the managing partner of Andiamo Fenton.
