It was lunch for 4 people. Two of us enjoyed their lunch, two of us merely tolerated it. Funny we both had fish, with similar results. Fish was hot but sides were cold. Cold Mac and cheese and cold greens just awful. Cold julienne zucchini and polenta disappointing. We should have sent it back but we really didn’t have the time. It’s a shame since Amerigo is our first pick when visiting memphis but now it’s out of consideration.

We had friends, who we hadn't seen since the late 90's come into Memphis for a special Navy/Tigers football game. Their son plays for Navy and we wanted to meet at a nice place with great food. Amerigo was our first choice! Bren was our waiter and he was fantastic. The food was wonderful as always. Everything culminated delightfully to create a wonderful memory for us all. Thanks Amerigo!

My husband and I had an excellent dinner tonight. Our favorite, the arugula and apple salad was as delicious as always. The hostesses here always greet everyone personably and always set the stage for a superb dining experience. Our excellent server tonight was Megan. This is still one of our favorite places to eat in Memphis.

Service was great and ambiance too.

Caesar salad was nothing special at all. Did not like the Chicken Parmigiana. Have had much better elsewhere.
Red sauce was really bland.

Thank you for your recent visit to Amerigo! We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the service and ambiance, though I am sorry to learn that your meal fell short of expectations. The Chicken Parmesan is one of our most popular dishes, so it's disappointing to learn that it was lacking in seasoning and flavor. Please know that we are always open to hearing from our guests on how we can improve, and will happily replace anything that you do not absolutely love.

Service was horrible. Waited 20 minutes after getting sat with waiters passing by and not a word or eye contact. We could tell our table was likely on the edge of a section. Finally got up to ask who our server was. Ordered an appetizer but came after the salad from dinner and only because we asked where it was. Had the lasagna but it was very bland. Waited for everything all night except they were very prompt and fast with the check. Expected much more given other reviews. Recently moved to Memphis and trying to find great restaurants. This was Not Great.

Came there to celebrate my 55TH with friends our waiter was Chris.. he was absolutely amazing!! The food was delicious. Especially the artichoke dip.. my friend and I had the Gita cheese pasta. It would have been really good but was lacking flavor. I cane home and doctored it up and then it was very good. Will definitely be back

I had recently been to a luncheon at Amerigo and really enjoyed everything we had, so I suggested to my husband we try it for dinner. We were not disappointed. The grilled artichoke starter was delicious. I highly recommend it! We ordered the chicken Marsala and the veal saltimbocca and both were very good. The tiramisu is outstanding, the best I think I ever had! I will definitely go back to try some of their other entrees!

We visit Amerigo very often as it is one of our very favorite places. Something was "off" on Saturday night when we were there. Our server was great & kept apologizing for the wait for our food. We certainly understood it was not his fault. When our food arrived, it was as good as always. Other than the wait for our food, it was great, as usual. Thank you!
