Amedeo's 50th Celebration

Amedeo's Italian Restaurant is celebrating its 50th anniversary this week with special guests, including head coach Dave Doeren Monday evening.

Amedeo ‘Dick' DeAngelis came to NCSU from the family home in Reading, PA in 1954 on a football scholarship. He missed home cooking and got the idea of opening a small restaurant featuring some of his mother's and grandmother's homemade Italian recipes.

In 1963, Amedeo's, a restaurant seating 12 opened on Western Boulevard. Throughout the years and with his mother, his wife Betty, children, grandchildren and loyal employees joining the business, Amedeo's has developed into Raleigh's Finest Italian Family Restaurant.

Amedeo's is celebrating its 50th this week with $5 dollar dinner plates and special evening guests.

Listed below is a schedule of the guests expected to attend, including several NC State coaches and DeAngelis, who will be present each night. Click here for more information.
