We have been in the pizza industry for over 30 years. Rick started in his uncle Joe's pizzeria when he was just a teenager. Opened his first pizza shop at the age of 18. While Patty started off in one of those big chains making and delivering pizza at the age of 19. After she moved to New Jersey to manage one of those chain places they met, not long after she went to work for a small Italian Restaurant and learn how to cook from the grandmother, who was straight from Italy.
They decided it was time to do there own thing and opened a couple pizza shops in NJ, where Rick's mom Deloris helped out and his young daughter Kaylee spent many an afternoon. A few years later they sold both their shops and moved west to the Pocono's and have been here ever since. First working for others then opening the famous Fat Cat Pizza & Deli in Reeders, PA. Now it was Patty's mother Dee (grandma to many of our loyal customers) who got up and opened shop making the sauce and cooking breakfast and lunch. The opportunity came to open a place in Pocono Pines and they decided to go with the family name, thus Amadeo's Pizza & Deli was born.
For many years three generations worked side by side almost everyday, since then Grandma Dee has retired. You will still find Rick, Patty and daughter Kaylee hard at work, and occasionally maybe the next generation to work at Amadeo's. The grandchildren, Jayden and Mylee, love to come in and visit Pop and Grammie and snacht up a few Italian cookies while their at it!
Here at Amadeo's we cook like we are cooking for family. Everything is done fresh! We make all of our own sauces, dough, soups and deli salads. We cook to order, meaning when you order grilled chicken or a cheese steak (or anything else) we are cooking it fresh for you, not cooking it ahead of time and it sitting for hours. All of our sauteed dishes are made at the time you order so if you don't like as much garlic or only a little wine all you have to do is say so! We will try our best to cook it just the way you want. We are a honest hard working family. Every picture you see on this site is from our place, no stock photos here.
