Description: For over 20 years, Amerigo has been a local Jackson favorite. Authentic Italian pastas, hand-made pizzas, fresh seafood and wood-fired steaks offer something for everyone at Amerigo. And if your tastes veer toward wine, you'll find everything from affordable, every day wines to single vineyard varietals from Piedmont to Sicily. Amerigo serves lunch and dinner daily, as well as brunch on Saturday and Sunday. Early bird is available daily between 4-6pm, and we offer over 15 gluten-free dishes to choose from. Reservations and catering services are available for groups of all sizes.

A friend invited me to this restaurant for the early bird specials. It was the best food ever. The portions were very generous. You get a wide variety of choices. They don't hold back on anything. The prices are great! You must visit and try the shrimp scampi! Awesome.

I had the smoked chicken ravioli with a parmesan cream sauce and fried artichoke, and my husband had oven baked lasagna. I am not fond... More

I have eaten at this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed. I always have a tough time choosing an entree, as they all look and smell wonderful. Highly recommend the crab cake appetizer, but one is enough if you order an entree, as it is very rich and filling. On my most recent visit, I got the special,... More

Expertly prepared, authentic, and delicious pasta dishes. I recommend the smoked chicken ravioli or the three cheese tortellini. Also the grilled salmon and grilled pork chop are some of the best I've ever had.

Totally enjoyed our lunch here while in Jackson. Beautiful, cozy interior with low lighting. Comfortable booth. Our server was gracious and did an excellent job. We both ordered the veal parmesan which was perfectly prepared with a fresh flavorful tomato sauce SO SO good. Their Caesar salad was top notch and the fresh bread had excellent crust and texture for... More
