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!

My wife and I met a friend for dinner and drinks. We met in the bar first and drinks and atmosphere was nice. We then progressed to the table where we enjoyed the ability to carry on great conversation while eating and continuing with a bottle of wine and enjoying dessert with coffee. Our waitress was very nice and accommodating. Made for a great evening!!

The fried artichoke appetizer was great. The rest (scallops, chicken picante, veal Marsala was pedestrian and over cooked. The salads were sub par. The meal I gamer all seemed thrown together with little care taken playing the food. We would not go back again.

Thank you for your recent visit to Amerigo. I am sorry to hear that the salmon was not cooked to the proper temperature. We are happy to cook that to any specified temperature upon request, but I do apologize if it was not prepared correctly the first time. Furthermore, it's disappointing to learn that your dish was over-seasoned. If there is ever anything we can do to improve your experience, we'd love to know so we can make it right during your visit.

My family and I, typically, have an excellent experience at Amerigo. This visit went a bit differently, but the food was still excellent. The drinks were underwhelming, to say the least. I was most disappointed in the service; we’ve never had an issue during many prior visits. I’ll will return in hopes my faith is restored in Amerigo.

Well, don't expect to be seated at the bar with a low noise level at lunch. Ambiance is about right. Food serving is more than the average; able to take leftovers to go for dinner. Bread is delicious; can't skip it.

Service is great; can't complain.

Everything was fine. I did find the shrimp scampi to be oily. Butter was not emulsified. The sauce broke at the table. We had three courses. A fresh fork would have been nice as opposed to being asked to keep my fork. A good overall date.
