    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "One of my favorite places to eat fish on a wood plank. Great taste plus 2 big sides and bread for $25-30 which makes it a great value as well. Wife loves the pizza and other Italian dishes. Bread and olive oil served at all the tables."

    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We love going to Amerigo because the food is delicious, the staff is always engaging and professional and it has such a relaxing ambience. Amerigo is not a restaurant that I would take small children as I think the diners of this establishment are expecting a quiet/romantic experience."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "There was some good and some bad with the most recent dining experience. The good.. Service was good Chicken Acuto/Kid's Meal/Chesse Fritters were all very good The bad.... Member of dining party got the Mahi Mahi Wood Plank Grilled Meal for $26. The veggies that accompanied the meal were good although serving size was small. The potatoes were dry. The fish was flavorless and small, especially for $26. On top of that, it was riddled with bones."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We eat here on a regular basis. It never let's us down. I typically get the cedar plank salmon it is very good. My wife is gluten free and they have great pasta choices for her."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Used to be a very consistent place. Started with service and then food. Finally gave it another chance for a quick lunch. Ordered lasagna and received it cold in the middle. Straight out of the fridge cold. Sent it back and waiter dropped it off. Room temperature this time and even some of the cheese in the center was melted. Server didn't return for more than 15 mins. Finally flagged down another server and asked for a manager. The manage offered to bring me another entree but at this point we were 45 mins into what was supposed to be a quick lunch so I declined the offer."

Jennifer's time was on point along with the ambiance of the restaurant she made me feel that all of my choices were just fabulous. The three courses were hot fresh ingredients tasty and great portion sizes. I must start coming back more often."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The food was delicious. The Cedar Plank Salmon was perfect and paired with vegetables and potatoes. The three cheese tortellini with fresh lump crab meat was perfection. I truly recommend this restaurant, first thing we asked ourselves was, do we have one back home? This is a Memphis jewel to dine at and lives up to fabulous Italian food. Go tonight!"
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Eaten @Amerigo many times. Currently on Weight Watchers, tho, & reviewed their salad selections online b4 dining, & they looked fantastic. Unfortunately, my friend &I were disappointed in our salads. I had insalata nona (adding grilled chicken), & she had arugula w/ flame-grilled apples (adding salmon). We agreed that our meat selections were tasty, but the salads themselves were bland. Both salads had light-tasting dressing but not nearly enough -- should've both asked for more. Both felt hungry after we'd finished the salads, which would seemingly be good for our waistlines, ... except that we both went home & ate something else! Long story short: their regular entrees are delicious & filling, but the salads aren't great."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Amerigo is a nice, dependable restaurant. The food was good, as always. Service was friendly and attentive. I wish they would add a few items to the dinner menu, though."
    Dined on 3/9/2014

    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Trying different restaurants throughout Memphis trying to get out of my comfort zone. Have gone to Amerigos long ago but had forgotten how great the restaurant is from the food to the atmosphere and fabulous service. I would recommend this restaurant if you want great service as well a excellent food for a very reasonable price."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Great atmosphere, cool jazz in the background, top notch service and of course very good food... Calamari was BOMB!!!! No strain on the old pocket book either, I might add...."

    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "I had a very good experience at Amerigo's. I took my boyfriend there for his birthday and it was really romantic."
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "If you're looking for good Italian food, consistently well-prepared with a well-trained wait staff, look no further than Amerigo's. I've eaten at this local restaurant for more than 15 years and can always count on a wonderful meal accompanied by a nice glass of wine. Their yummy tiramisu is large enough for two and their handmade salads can be split."
    Dined on 11/25/2013
  • "Amerigo never disappoints. The menu has something for everybody, and the service is the best. Strong recommendation!"
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "We went to Amerigo's for brunch. Our food was barely warm when we got it. My bacon was cold. The restaurant was less than half full, so food pick-up delays cannot be blamed. I had scrambled eggs and bacon with some kind of potatoes. The potatoes were not good - the sauce was the culprit. My wife's entrée was so-so. I cannot remember what she had. The service was fine. The young lady, (Christine), who waited on us was prompt and attentive. We have been to this restaurant a few times in the past several years. The food was always good. The service was always good. The restaurant was always quite full. I think you need a new chef / cook staff or you are not going to make it."
    Dined on 11/3/2013
  • "This restaurant is absolutely FANTASTIC! From the very first minute of walking in and being greeted, to being seated, to our server...everything was beyond my best expectations! The food selection was "top shelf" as well, and comparable to any five-star I've been to. This was my wife's birthday celebration, and choosing this establishment was the best decision I could have ever made!"
    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "Food and service were great. It was a great way to relax with friends and catch up on things."
    Dined on 10/24/2013
  • "Don't bother eating there. Food was very disappointing and the service awful. We hadn't finished our salads when the entrees were thrown on the table. Pasta was overcooked and the sauce was just an amalgamated mess. I had the veal Marsala and the veil was chewy too. I was very disappointed and will not go back. I certainly expected better from them."
    Dined on 10/20/2013
  • "My wife and I desired an evening to share dinner and bring an old bottle of Barbaresco from the cellar. We both wanted some "slow down" time together in an elegant restaurant with subdued lighting, an upscale ambiance where all we had to do was enjoy the wine with someone else cooking for us. Happily, Amerigo's delivered. The food was outstanding and even more was the service as Lance, our waiter, delivered polite, professional and not over imposing service. He knew we wanted to slow the meal down and not rush the evening. I look forward to returning ."
    Dined on 10/19/2013
  • "Everything was just perfect; from the food to the service."
    Dined on 10/18/2013
  • "Amerigo's is a consistently enjoyable neighborhood Italian restaurant that provides a selection of well prepared, often customized dishes ranging from dinner salads and pizza to a excellent pasta dishes and fresh fish on the plank. Their prior sea bass option is missed over the past year or two. Booths in the bar are particularly enjoyable venues of relative quiet and comfort around a moderate bar scene. Service is typically quite good, and the new wine list is much appreciated."
