I had been living in Sydney for two years and visited almost all restaurants in Sydney. And I can say that Amedeo's Italian Bistro is one of the best in my personal rating. For me this restaurant is the best combination of great service, reasonable prices and atmosphere overall. Last time when I had supper with my friends, I had... More

Amedeo's offers tasty Italian fare. I usually order the gnocchi primavera. The arancini (risotto balls) are a nice appetizer. There are three dining "rooms". I prefer to be in the inside room, to the left side of the front door. There is also a private room that is available if you are planning a dinner for a group.

Was pleasantly surprised with the restaurant layout and decor! We were greeted by a smiling waitress who took us to our table. The menu was small but it was a lunch time menu with specials. Our drink order came quickly as did our food choices. All the ladies had positive comments about their meals of gnocchi primave, lasagna, wraps and... More

This is my third time back to Amedeos. I love the atmosphere and Stephanie our server went out of her way knowing that it was our anniversary. Service is amazing but I expected more out of the food for the pricing. I would rate the food 7.5-8.

First time eating here and the pasta is amazing. The service is very pleasant and the portions of the food size is very good. I would recommend eating here and will definitely be going back if I'm in the area again

I had very juice pork loin and my friend's beef Lombardo (tender loin) was excellent too. Love the deco and service. Impressed with this small fine dining restaurant in this small town.

Don't understand the hype on this place. It was over priced for what you were served and the food had a severe lack of freshness.. Nothing that I tasted was cooked properly and the pasta was way past A Dente to the point of crumbling. Will not be back.
