I’m back in Cape Breton after a wonderful summer abroad. I will certainly do a general recap in the next week or so for those interested.
To celebrate being back on the island, I had to hit up the latest addition to Cape Breton’s restaurant scene: Amedeo’s Italian Bistro on Townsend St.
The restaurant is Sydney’s only Italian restaurant that specializes in Italian cuisine, with fresh sauces and homemade pasta.
I couldn’t wait to check it out, especially after being in Italy over the summer.
Reservations were made for 6pm, and I was happy I made them because a line up had started in the doorway and out into the street.
Amedeo’s was just what I had imagined: cozy, just a little bit chic, and welcoming. Walking in felt like I had been there before, and made me think that I would definitely like to go back.
The service was great, with a number of different waitresses coming to check in on us, and make small talk (not of the annoying variety)! All of the girls were competent, and seemed genuinely happy to be there, even during peak hours.
The menu was fantastic as well; you can view the many choices here! As a veg, I went with the homemade pasta medallions stuffed with squash.
It was incredible! Only five medallions were served, but they were a great proportion that left you feeling perfectly satisfied instead of “rolly-poley-oley”.
Dessert seemed tempting to finish off the meal, and I glanced at a table having it and I almost caved, but after the pasta I couldn’t! Regardless, I will definitely be back to try the desserts soon.
After a wonderful evening at Amedeo’s, we walked the few steps to the boardwalk for a blissful walk along the water while watching the sunset.
All in all, it was a great welcome home – and meal.
