If I were playing Haydns serenade, how would I play andantino? Faster than Andantae or slower?

Rfv-sense: each sense. The original contributor defined it as:
- (music) a tempo which should mean to play a little slower than its diminutive andante but is sometimes used as if meaning to play a little faster
and I don't know what to make of that. "Should" in what sense? "As if" in what sense? (This may actually be better addressed with references than with quotations.)
- Striking: Stephen G. Brown (talk • contribs) de-tagged this last March, changing it to a single sense "(music) A tempo that is slighty faster than andante but slower than moderato." —RuakhTALK 23:44, 17 January 2011 (UTC)
