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.

Amerigo"s is a Jackson staple. A go to restaurant if ever there was one. Food never disappoints, wine list is great. Only problem is the fact that you may have to wait a few minutes on a Friday or Saturday night. Avoid by doing the early bird special.

We have always enjoyed eating at Amerigo's. I went with my girl friends last week and it was great! The starters, main entrees, salads, and bisque are all wonderful! Our waiter was top notch and the atmosphere is pleasant.

Chicken acuto with black bean salsa was excellent! (I asked them to flash fry the artichoke for the crunch...mmm.) Seating is cozy so not ideal for squirmy children or high chairs.

I always enjoy Amerigo, but this time stands out. Everyone- from the server, to the host, to the busboy- was top notch. I got the special black fish, and it was delicious. My only regret was skipping dessert, but I was way too full! They don't take call-ahead or reservations on Friday/Saturday nights; be prepared to wait, especially if you... More

I'd be tempted to call this southern Italian, with the slightly sweeter, heavy marinara sauce. That's what was on the lasagna, which was very good. However, my husband had the pasta with duck and, since we were with other people, it seemed rude to tackle him and steal it. Rich, but not too rich, and perfectly creamy. The pre-dinner bread...
