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.

The food was excellent except for the rib eye being nitrogen sealed and not fresh. For $35 I would have liked fresh. My mussels and tirimisu were superb. The $60 chainte was lovely and the service 100%.

Delicious lunch specials for about 10 bucks. Tuesday has the Greek plate which is a local favorite. Servings are not large but adequate. Lovely atmosphere and good service. There are numerous prints of famous Canadian artists.
