Hi Caroline, thank you for your recent visit to Amerigo. I am sorry to hear that your experience fell short of expectations.

We tried every type of ravioli on the menu and not one let me down. What a blessing. Haha.

My only regret is that we were too full for dessert.

Also, pro tip, the bread tastes best with the wild mushroom ravioli sauce. :)

This was my first time at Amerigo. Upon arrival I asked for a quiet section due to my hearing loss. They immediately seated us in a back room, which was ideal for catching up with friends. The place was busy and I might have done alright in other sections if I had remembered my hearing aid.

Each of the 3 dishes we ordered tasted unique. I ordered the tortellini - rich, but ohc so delicious. Another ordered the mushroom ravioli - yum. Two others loved their salmon filet. We were very well taken care of by the professional staff, just the right amount of attention. Thank you, Amerigo!

The server never told us about the specials. It wasn’t until after we ordered food that we heard another server informing another table about the specials for the evening. I ordered a steak cooked medium. The server later returned to ask again how I wanted my steak prepared. My steak arrived cooked rare. I sent it back to the kitchen and was yet again asked how I wanted it prepared. Another steak arrived cooked rare. The manager asked how I wanted it prepared, and yet again I said medium. The third steak arrived cooked medium. The staff apologized but never asked how they can keep our business. The check arrived, and no one offered to comp the steak or offer anything to improve our already ruined experience.

It may be some time before we return if ever. There are too many other dining options available in Nashville.

The food is excellent at Amerigo. As long as you have no immediate plans following dinner, by all means, have dinner there. We arrived 30 minutes before our 4:30pm reservation, and nearly missed the tip off for the Vanderbilt women's basketball game at 6 pm. Our salads were delivered at 4:45 pm and the entrees came out at 5:15pm. The server did not come back to ask about additional Parmesean until my husband had finished more than half of his dinner. Loved the flavor of everything, the portions are ample, but service could have been more prompt.

Restaurant was very noisy. I took my dad and boyfriend who are both from out of town and it was hard to engage in conversation because the restaurant was so loud. I called about a reservation after looking on open table and the host told me there was nothing until 8:30 pm. Open table said there was an opening at 7:30 so I told the host this and he just snarky replied then use the app. When I arrived the same host was working. He told us he would try to set us before 7:30 and would come get us at from the bar where we were having drinks. 7:30 comes around and he had not yet got us. My dad went over to talk to him and he said oh I thought you were just sitting at the bar. Then I ordered the spaghetti carbonara and received butter noodles with one piece of pancetta. I told the host who brought our food to us that this was not what I had ordered. His response "yeah I thought that looked wrong." Overall this experience sucked and I would not recommend this to anyone.

Thank you for your recent visit to Amerigo! While it's a pleasure to hear that both food and service were enjoyed, I'm sorry to learn that you didn't fully enjoy your experience with us. Our dining room does tend to get bustling during busy times. We have a more secluded section with booths that is much quieter than our main dining room. In the future, we're more than happy to seat you there for a more intimate dining experience. We appreciate your feedback and hope you will return again soon!

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.
