Restaurant Description

Raleigh, NC is a long way from Reading, PA, yet Amedeo "Dick" DeAngelis made the trek to play football for the mighty NC State Wolfpack in 1954. Playing on a scholarship, he was a long way from home and he greatly missed "home cooking". The idea of opening a small Italian restaurant seemed the most effective way to alleviate the longing. He utilized homemade recipes from his mother and grandmother and in 1963, a 12-seat restaurant opened on Western Boulevard in Raleigh. Since that time Dick, along with his mother, wife Betty, children, and grandchildren and many loyal employees have expanded "Amedeo's" into a premier eating establishment with a seating capacity now of over 200!

 This restaurant lacks everything! Good management, cooks, service, cleanliness, EVERYTHING! There were roaches on the floor and its not the 1st time I have heard of that. Someone needs to shut that place down! We were rudely treated and will not be visiting again.

Six Forks Pub  5  out of 5 stars
 Love it here. Karaoke on Tuesday's is awesome, and there's always something going on. Food's pricey for not getting sides but drink's are usually fair priced.
Six Forks Pub  3  out of 5 stars
 The food is too expensive for what you get. The burgers do not come with any sides, sides are additional. $8.99 just for the burger.
La Piazza  2  out of 5 stars
 Was a great place, now declining....prices went up, portions went down. I mean $6.00 for a meatball (kids meal w/1, adult portion has 2 & is 6.00 more)...worst part was owner (Anthony) not taking any care about the service or lack thereof, he's just ...
