Amelia's Restaurant Review: Amelia's is a charming landmark located right along Marine Avenue on Newport's Balboa Island. The restaurant has been around for more than five decades, serving up classic Italian and Mediterranean-style seafood dishes. Chef Hetty Robinson (Amelia's daughter) oversees a menu featuring dishes like lasagna and linguine, and cioppino, shrimp scampi and filet of sole. The restaurant's sunset specials, served from 5 p.m.-6 p.m. every weekend, are rather popular among local residents and longtime regulars alike. The restaurant also lures the weekend brunch crowd with omelets, scrambles, and other traditional fare from Friday through Sunday.
