Excellent. Our server Lance was friendly, attentive, courteous and professional. He was a pleasure; he made our meal much more enjoyable. I brought 3 other friends and it was their first time. They were highly impressed with the Early Bird options. The quantity was generous and every dish was tasteful and fresh. They definitely will come back. The hostess was super friendly and helpful. Thanks for a great evening.

One of the best values in town. One can always count on good food and service at a reasonable price. Any foodie knows that consistency is key to a good restaurant and Amerigos has that going for it.

Love Amerigo’s but was disappointed in the food this visit. Shrimp scampi and veal piccata were swimming in oil. Will try Amerigo’s again but hope this was just a bad night in the kitchen and not the way of the future. Service was excellent as always.

We were there for the early bird special. We both had the spring salad, chicken marguerite and salmon. All were delicious. The quantity was generous and food was tasty and fresh. We love the bread. Our server Lee was awesome. She was courteous, polite and professional. We had a great time. We will definitely return in the future.

I was visiting Memphis from Houston and chose Amerigo's because I was in a diverse party with a vegetarian and three foodies with divergent tastes. No only did Amerigo's satisfy everyone's expectations but they far exceeded it with an impressive wine selection and a menu that truly made it hard to choose. We were fortunate enough to have been served by Lance. He was not only helpful with wine and food selection, but made the evening very pleasant for our entire party. I would strongly recommend Amerigo's for a special occasion or just any time someone is looking for creative and delicious Italian food.

Thanks Open Table for sending me here.

I had the Picatta, wife had the cheese tortellini and son had spaghetti w/ meatball, sampled all three meals and each had very good flavor and was well presented.

Must get the crab cake, very well done. We will definitely be back. A new fav!

Great place for a nice meal, happy hour or meeting. Nice private area for large parties.

We are vegetarian so we obviously are a good judge of the entire menu. However, the vegetarian items we did have were very mediocre. My husband had the eggplant parmesan and it was so SALTY we couldn't have more than a couple of bites. I wished that we had politely sent it back. The portobello mushroom salad and key lime pie was good. Everything else was not very impressive. Probably would go back, but just for dessert.

Amerigo Memphis is one of our family's favorite restaurants. It's nearly perfect in every way. Several in our family have a favorite meal on their menu. The overall family favorite is chicken margarite with scallion cream sauce.
