    One of few nice dining places open for Thanksgiving Dinner with a choice of turkey or prime rib and all the fixin's. Plenty of wait staff and great service. Food was phenomenal. We've eaten there 6-8 times before and always left pleased, but even more thankful than usual this time.

    I’ve been to Amercano 4-5 times and on all visits, everything I have eaten was well prepared and delicious. The roast prime rib was second to none that I’ve ever eaten. All of the sides and desserts are wonderful also. The owner and all of the staff make you feel welcome. Always a great dining experience and I look forward to our next visit.

    What a nice discovery! We had never been here and we’re looking forward to a relaxing meal without having to cook. Briana did a great job making sure we were taken care of. The owner stopped by the table twice to make sure everything was ok. Food was delicious, we had the thanksgiving special turkey dinner. All food was piping hot when it got to the table. Apple pie for dessert was excellent as well. We’ll be back again! NOTE: they don’t serve alcohol. You can bring your own wine for a small corkage fee.

    The food was outstanding; the service was superior. Our larger family celebrates Thanksgiving on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, so on Thanksgiving Day, the two of us choose to eat at a restaurant. This was our first experience with the Americano in Roan Mountain, and it won't be our last.

    Restaurant is somewhat isolated. Service was good, very friendly. And I have the Hawaiian ribeye my wife had the prime rib special both of our guest had the prime rib special as well. If you decided to go off menu for something other than green beans and mashed potatoes there was an up charge. Food was OK. $10 corkage fee

    Excellent restaurant. Food was outstanding. I had the prime rib and it was cooked perfectly. My wife had the fettuccini Alfredo with chicken, which was a very large serving, so I had a mother dinner the next night. It was great too. Will be going back again.

    Two of us ordered the prime rib. It was tough and over cooked. My husband could not chew the meat and left most of it untouched. They did comp his dinner but we decided that prime rib was not a good choice. Two of our guests tried the grouper and the salmon and were happy with their choices. There were many people in the restaurant which made it noisy. We were celebrating birthdays which the hostess mentioned when we arrived but no further acknowledgment was made.

    We went to the restaurant for our anniversary dinner. We split the appetizer special which was a char broiled artichoke with a spicy chili drizzle. It was very tasty but the artichoke wasn’t as tender as normal. We had a caesar and a Greek salad, both very tasty and authentic. We both had the Americano Sirloin cooked to perfection. It is a favorite of ours as the top butt cut is both tender, flavorful and perfectly grilled. We had the baked potato, spinach, and a side of asparagus. The asparagus was like the baby asparagus found in the spring; delicious and tender. The peanut butter landslide for dessert was amazing. We’ll be back.

    This is a great new restaurant. It's pretty much in the middle of nowhere yet I would not go without reservations. That should be all you need to know! Thursday is prime rib night and they do an excellent job - probably the best prime rib I've ever had at a restaurant.

    Prices seemed to be on par with other restaurants however, the piece of Overmountain chicken seemed very small for $20.99. Only came with a plain baked potato, too! The wait staff was very attentive though.

    Prime rib was cooked to perfection, med rare just what I like and very tasty. Wait staff was prompt and courteous. The only minor complaint was the horseradish sauce was too mild. I like mine to have a bite to it. A very small constructive criticism. Look forward to my next time!!!

    Tried this restaurant after many people said it was a good place to eat. Restaurant is amongst the mountains, so we took the 30 minute drive enjoyed the fall foliage and then topped it off with a very good meal at a nice comfortable restaurant. Will definitely be going back. Owners are doing a great job and this restaurant should enjoy success for a long time.
