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!

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.
