Amelia's Family Cuisine & Catering: "Excellent Authentic Italian Cuisine" Hibbing Restaurant Tip by wrenp4

Hibbing Restaurants: 1 reviews and 0 photos

The only place in town with authentic Italian cuisine from scratch: Pasta Aglio e Olio, Alfredo, Carbonara, and traditional Sugo. Gourmet pizzas served on a crispy thin crust (the only pizza blanca in town, also). Daily lunch specials and from-scratch soups. Grilled steaks, kabobs, and broiled walleye usually available. Italian wine selection. Also- some strange treats like Olivinos- black olives stuffed with salsa and cheese. For desert- gelato made in-house. Go to Amelia's to relax in the small, quiet restaurant. Check out the patio in the summer.

Favorite Dish: Appetizer: Olivinos- Breaded, fried, black olives stuffed with salsa and cheese. Sounds strange, but they are amazing!
Main Course: "Blanco" Pizza w/ asparagus or Spaghetti Carbonara for a more hearty meal. Both are the best (or the only available) of their dish in town! Carbonara is very rich and is the perfect balance of creamy and smoky prosciutto. The blanco pizza is light and crispy. Perfect amount of basil, oregano, garlic, and cheese.
Desert: Mango Gelato- really intense flavor, creamy gelato.
