Andre’s Italian Restaurant is Open

Andre’s Italian restaurant has re-opened at 5400 Wilshire Blvd.

Andre’s, the beloved Italian restaurant, has re-opened at 5400 Wilshire Blvd in the historic Dominguez-Wilshire building at 5410 Wilshire Blvd. Andre’s closed after being forced to relocate from their longtime home at Third Street and Fairfax Avenue once construction began at the former Town and Country Shopping Center.

Siblings Stephanie and Nicholas Gagliarducci and Chef Simon Alvarez welcomed members and the guests of the Miracle Mile Chamber of Commerce to the restaurant for a ribbon-cutting this afternoon.

“It’s been a long time coming but we are so excited to be open and really thankful for all the community support,” Stephanie Gagliarducci told the Buzz.

Andre’s has taken over the former Eleven City Diner location that has been vacant since the restaurant closed during the pandemic. The space seems to perfectly suit the fast-casual, family-style restaurant known for its generous portions.

Chef Alvarez told the Buzz they had to rework the kitchen to suit their needs but the large dining looks pretty much the same though the color scheme is more traditional Italian. There’s a wonderful mural depicting the story of the restaurant founded by Chef Domenic Andreone by Nicholas Gagliarducci. On the back wall is a large painting of Chef Andre with Gagliarducci’s father and famous Italian Americans done by Gagliarducci when he was just ten years old.

The menu features all the classics the restaurant has served since opening in Beverly Hills in 1959.

Andre’s is open Monday through Thursday from 11 to 7:30 p.m. and Friday through Sunday 11 to 8:30 p.m. Check it out, the family would love to see you!
