    The food was great but this was the worst service we ever had at Amerigo. One meal came out 5 mins after the others and it was only spaghetti. It took longer to get the check than the food. Very very disappointed.

    This was our 2nd visit. We were not disappointed. We had reservations and were quickly seated. The waiter, Jimmy, started the service with a smile and good recommendations. The pace of the service was just right. Food quality and quantity was very good and came from the kitchen piping hot. Absolutely perfect. Amerigos was clearly a popular place because the resturant was full!

We will always return for special occasions or just to have a night out. The early bird specials cannot be beat and the house wines were great.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    A colleague and I had a very pleasant evening this week, dining at Amerigo in Memphis. I've been a fan of Amerigo since visiting the first location in Jackson, MS many years ago. We were promptly greeted when entering the front door and seated. Pamela, our server, was attentive, professional and a delight. I'll go back again and highly recommend Amerigo.

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.

    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!

  • Salad selection is lacking
    MemphisLawyer
    Dined on 3/11/2014
    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.
