If you arrived blindfolded (and had a terrible sense of direction) you might think Andrea was smack dab in the middle of a luxe little Italian seaside village. Alas, Andrea is actually located within The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Coast (at 22701 Pelican Hill Rd. S.), just south of Orange County’s fabled Newport Beach. The Four-Star northern Italian eatery is surrounded by the resort’s Tom Fazio-designed golf course, a 23,000 square-foot luxury spa, a picturesque pool, and a bevy of bungalows and villas. Andrea is 15 minutes by car by from John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, 30 minutes from Long Beach Airport, and 45 minutes from Los Angeles International Airport.
