Amedeo’s Italian Bistro – Sydney, NS

Eat, Drink, & Do
Amedeos Bistro Sydney Cape Breton Nova Scotia

On a recent weekend trip to Baddeck, we met up with a friend in Sydney to hand-deliver a wedding invitation. On her suggestion, we found ourselves at Amedeo’s, a small Italian restaurant in the middle of downtown Sydney.  Upon entering Amedeo’s, we were greeted by the savory smell of authentic Italian food; fresh bread, olive oil and the scent of ripe tomatoes.

The restaurant is well lit with natural light from the many windows.  The layout allows for privacy without being claustrophobic. Drew ordered the lunch buffet (of course) – Italian breads, salad, soup, two pastas, two meat stews, hand made pizza and more for $12.99.  I opted for the baked stuffed mussels, while our dinner mate ordered a pasta dish that incorporated chicken, bacon and a cream sauce (which she says she ordered every time).

Top marks went to the bread, baked mussels and the pasta. The portion size for the pasta was more than enough for lunch. I was not that hungry, so my portion size was okay, but normally would not have been enough to fill me.

We were especially pleased with the prices – The baked stuffed mussels were only $8.99 and the all-you-can-eat rang in at $15 after tax.

Welcome fellow adventurers, explorers, foodies, knaves and those of questionable repute to The Local Traveler. This blog is dedicated to discovering the best parts of travel – craft beer, local wine, adventure, unique cuisine, and hidden gems. In December 2010, we were inspired to start this blog for two reasons. First of all, after listening to a radio story about the top environmental offenders in travel, we decided to find ways to reduce our personal carbon footprint. Secondly, we found ourselves in a position where we were flat broke but still had a huge desire to travel and explore. So, we began investigating all the attractions accessible by car, bike, foot, and train. We learned to find adventure every day – at home, close to home, and much further afoot. We believe that travel is less about the destination and more about the journey. You don’t have to go far to find an adventure, sometimes the best experiences can be found right in your backyard.
