This place is known for their Italian dishes. We went for my birthday dinner. If you do not like to wait, get there AT 5 or earlier. Saturday nights are always busy. Lunch is reasonable. My husband and I both got the special. Filet was very good, and our waiter was very helpful & knowledgeable. I will go again.

Great food and early bird dinner is a good value. Server was slow to say the least. Would return when in the area.

Amerigo is always crowded and noisy, but the food is very good. The service can be slow; so go when you are not in a hurry.

There was a group of 7- no one was disappointed. The portions are very substantial yet there is no sacrifice on quality. I had the Ravioli , sauce used was tasty. Also had the shrimp bisque, very rich and creamy, outstanding. I am not an overall Italian fan but enjoyed this meal. Service was excellent- nice place.

This restaurant is apart of a family chain of restaurants. They have really good food. I normally order a seafood pasta or the fettuccine imperial (chicken and ham w/ mushrooms). Both are really good. They also have fish and steaks as well. Food is flavorful and their wine selection is pretty nice as well. My family and I dine here... More

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 flew into Ridgeland to visit my husband who works out of state and he said he has driven by this restaurant that is always busy so we have to go there for supper tonight. 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.
