    They have an excellent menu - and they can prepare it well. Interesting wine menu. Prices are very correct. Probably best restaurant in the neighborhood. Fast service. Quality is quite constant. Sometimes they hit the sweet spot (e.g. their salmon on cedarwood and the Thursday special), but sometimes they miss the mark completely (e.g. tiramisu? (just cake with khuala), veal marsala (no marsala (?), just red sauce), undercooked veggies, use of canned instead of fresh fruit).

    Bread was delicious (probably brought in, but I really dont know that). Cheesecake for dessert was also delicious, but do know for a fact that it's made at a bakery and delivered. Eggplant parmagiana left a lot to be desired. Sauce too salty, eggplant slices were way too thin, so that you only tasted salty tomato sauce and breading. Wouldn't go back.

    Our server was perfect. She anticipated our needs without constant checking. The bread and olive oil with spices served while we awaited our dinner was unique and heavenly. The tomatoes mozzarella salad was really delectable and a larger than expected serving. The prices were so great for a couple like us with 5 daughters trying to get away for a romantic dinner in a new city.

    Todays traveler runs across a multitude of so called "Italian" restaurants, most below average when it comes to the quality of the chef's fare. This visit was not the case. My request for something uncomplicated, but not on the menu, was quickly accepted and delivered with promptness while my wife's spaghetti bolognese was a rare treat for the flavor and the lightness of this version of a cream sauce. I would recommend this restaurant to locals and travelers alike.

    We ate here 6/26/2014. All of waitperson's other tables across the room. She was nice but no service unless we waived at her. Second glass of wine ordered but not brought. Chicken piccata not pounded out. Chicken breasts full thickness. No caramelization. Less mushrooms and crab than at other locations. Less lemon flavor, less capers. This is not piccata. What is it? Bland chicken breasts plopped down on a plate of pasta. Just not good. We have eaten at the Memphis and Brentwood locations. They are much better. Do not judge Amerigo's by this restaurant.

    Recently went to Amerigos for our anniversary. I have always enjoyed it. This time was different. I had the Veal Parmesan as I usually do. The veal was gritty, not white as it should be and VERY salty. I was disappointed. My wife had the Sirloin and mashed potatoes and it was excellent.

    Wrong Dining Selection, was brought to our table to my wife, after appetizer, the manager came and asked my wife if the dinner selection was good, then after my wife politely said yes, he explained "well good, because that's the wrong course plate" my wife ordered chicken stuffed course, and they brought mushrooms entrée. he offered to provide an adjustment on the plate rather that simply removing the price, since it was there error, would be nice for one complimentary meal to return .

    For a pre-show meal before the TPAC it was perfect! Food delicious and having a gluten free selection was perfect for the other couple joining us. Both couples are new to the area and live east of town. This gives us a wonderful choice for coming to town, having a wonderful meal without all the "costs" of DT parking. We'll all be back.

  • This is NOT Italian and NOT good
    NashvilleFoodieGirlVIP
    Dined on 6/3/2014
    I can understand why people who aren't Italian or who haven't experienced authentic Italian cuisine would give this restaurant anything above one star. I disliked everything they brought out. The mussels were fishy, too salty, and the tomatoes in the broth tasted canned and lukewarm. The goat cheese and walnut salad was decent, but certainly not something anyone couldn't make just as well if not better at home. The lasagna was absolutely atrocious: too rich, appealing to the crowd that requires that everything be smothered under some kind of coagulated cream sauce. There was no depth of flavor in any of the elements, and the pasta was so overcooked it was more like lasagna pudding. For better Italian in this town, try Cafe Nonna.

    Everything was too salty so I couldn't finished my food. I've eaten there before and it wasn't like that. Maybe new chef? Sweet tea was wayyy too sweet. Like diabetes in a glass. Even my kids complained about it. I didn't even order dessert Bc of these reasons. Love the ambience, wait staff was great. Food was great previous times. This time I just don't know what happened.

    If you have a brunch menu you should have the product available! Our party of four ordered and then the manager came over and advised three dishes were having to be altered as they were out of items. No croissants for the breakfast paninis and the confit chicken pizza would have a substation of grilled chicken. While he was accommodating and apologetic I was disappointed as these items should not be on the menu or of course we should have been notified when ordering. Considering a very limited bruch menu they should have all ingredients on hand or get out of the brunch business. I initially tried to order potatoes on the side with French toast and was advised no change allowed. I feel most prefer a side with French toast. Tried pizza.

    We appreciated being seated promptly at our reserved time. The staff seemed a bit overwhelmed with the Mother's Day rush. Our food order (2 frittatas and 1 lasagna) took an extremely long time and we noticed that other tables (which had been seated after us) were being served before us. The manager came over and apologized and told us that the "egg station" was exceptionally busy. Then our waiter came over and assumed that the manager had told us the truth, which was that our frittata orders had been lost. They made no effort to appease us with a complimentary appetizer or dessert and did not reduce the final bill.

    No complaints. My companions enjoyed their different salads, one chicken, one something else. The lasagna I had was good, though nothing special that I'd return for immediately. The chianti classico I ordered was also good, but not memorable. The table was quiet and in and out of the way place in the restaurant. Would return here at some point and try something else on the menu - but nothing to rush back for.

    Amerigo's is consistent and they try new things without being pretentious. Best of both worlds! The staff is always nice and talkative and the exact right amount of attentive. I tried the new Confi Chicken Pizza. Yum! They have changed up the crust (not to recently) but it is a bit thicker to support the toppings and it was a good idea. There is always a great oldie but goodie on the menu and something new. Nothing is ever bad here.
