Nice white tablecloth atmosphere. Server was attentive. Our food came out hot and fresh. I got the imperial and it was delicious. Cesear salad was basic with hard croutons. Bread for table was not typical Italian but ok. Hubby got chicken parmesan and did not care for it.

The food was good, the place was cute, and the early bird dinner specials rock! Great service, made my reservation two hours prior and my waiter was very attentive. It was a little too loud for me, but everything else was good.

Four PM on a Friday is the perfect time to enjoy Amerigo's West End! My spouse and I wanted a great meal before an event at the War Memorial Auditorium. There were only two other patrons when we arrived, but by the time we had eaten, the crowds started to form.
The Butternut Squash Soup was amazing, the Gemelli and Sausage was superb and our overall experience was exceptional. Thanks for being our favorite Nashville restaurant!

Always great service, food and plenty of it. Amerigo’s is my go to place for Italian food in Nashville. Go before 6:00 and you can get the early bird specials for a low, low price. My favorite dishes are the Fettuccine Imperial and the Chicken Marsala. Both
are delicious. The Cedar Plank Salmon is also highly recommended. Be sure and ask for bread as it too is wonderful.

Food here is incredible, but more often than not, the service was very poor.
Waited at hostess desk for over 5 minutes, before even being recognized. Manager asked if we were being help, then sat us. First server didn't identify himself, and made us wait to order, then had to remind him to get our drinks (4pm reservation). Then server leaves before we can even order our entree's, with no warning or anything, just suddenly we have a new server, who actually did a better job.
Wonderful food, great atmosphere, but leads than acceptable service.

My husband and I absolutely loved the food. The open room was very loud so if you want something more quiet this is not the place. It took our server a long time to go get a drink from the bar and on top of that we were given Jack Daniels when we both asked for Crown. Also our server was given other tables clearly on the other side of the room so we did not see him very much as we did all the other servers around. Our server was absolutely great and polite but we just couldnt find him when we needed. The food was delicious and we will be returning.

This restaurant is easy to get a table for fair, overpriced meals. Portions are large but have yet to find anything that’s delicious and doesn’t taste like it was cranked out from a commercial kitchen. easy parking out back which makes it easy to access. always hopeful of improvement and generally disappointed.

Enjoyed a lovely dinner at Amerigo last night being in town for a conference.

Excellent food, correctly prepared, attractive and delicious. Our server was woefully unprepared or incompetent -- courteous, friendly but unaware of his diners' needs/requests all night.

I asked when making the reservation 10 days out for a table next to a window and got just that -- nicely done on a night when the place was packed -- thanks for remembering.

We'll be back but with a new server, I hope.

We had never eaten here but were in town on vacation. I picked it because they had lots of gluten free options (gluten sensitive). We arrived early and ended up sitting at a hi-top in the bar area instead of waiting for our reservations. The waitress was speedy and informative. I ordered the gluten free crust fig and prosciutto pizza. This may have been the best pizza I have ever eaten- you would not know that it was gluten free! The mix of flavors was so skillful (sweet, salty, bitter, tart). My husband got the cedar pork chop. It was huge but also a really nice blend of flavors and skillfully prepared. Can't wait to go back to this restaurant someday and wish there was one in Western Michigan!

I didn't think my food was anything special (spaghetti w/meatball) and the bruschetta wasn't good at all. It's not what I would consider a traditional bruschetta and would not order again. With that being said, my waiter was very nice/attentive and I liked the décor. I will try it again at some point but I'm definitely not running back anytime soon.

We've dined here on several of our visits to Nashville. The food is always great and plentiful. The wait staff are wonderful. We've learned to make a reservation on Fridays and Saturdays because of its popularity. Our only criticisms are that it can be noisy and a bit cold (one of the tables was directly beneath an AC vent). However, it remains one of our favorites and is very convenient to the hotels where we stay in the Vanderbilt/West End.
