Paper City Eats: Amedeo's Italian American Restaurant

What is Paper City Eats?

During the late 19th century the city produced an estimated 80% of the writing paper used in the United States, and was the largest paper, silk, and alpaca wool mills in the world. Although a considerably less businesses make paper in Holyoke now, it's still commonly referred to as "The Paper City."


This video series focuses on the Holyoke food scene and how you can best support our local restaurants, both now during the economic turmoil of COVID and when the world returns to normal.


Amedeo's Italian American Restaurant

For our second episode of Paper City Eats, I visited one of Holyoke's finest Italian American restaurants. Amedeo's is a family owned bar and restaurant serving amazing lunches, dinners, pizza and desert since 1985 and run by the same family since 1992. I spoke with the manager Ashley.

"I would say our most popular dish is the Amedeo's special because it's our signature dish. It's chicken parm with meatballs and sausage over spaghetti and topped with mozzarella and marina sauce." - Ashley
