My father in law Felice D'Andrea was all over Italy, I have found records from him in several places. Felice was born around 1898 and had several brothers. Your grandfather could have been a brother or cousin, there were only two branches of the D'Andrea family according to a historian I spoke with, and they are all supposed to be related way back in genealogy. Plus only two D'Andrea men left Italy, according to records from 1890 - 1950.
The records in Italy are only about one to two American dollars. Therefore if you have a name and place of birth you can write to the city or town. I use this link http://www.freetranslation.com/ easy to translated English to Italian and Italian to English.
It is good to ask your parents the name of their parents and grandparents, but sometimes we do not think about it when they are with us. My mother in law Adeline used to write to family (sisters) in Italy, and she passed away suddenly and all information was lost. I do not know if it was her family or Felice. I see your Nana wrote to the sisters as well, maybe the same ones?
Please accept my most sincere condolences on the loss of your dear grandmother.
Have a great day
