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 Sunday. Early bird is available daily between 4-6pm, and we offer over 15 gluten-free dishes to choose from.

Eat here regularly. This a personal favorite. Always very pleased with both food and atmosphere. Service is great. Top notch staff. Love the early bird. Always a busy place in the evenings. That should tell you something. To go orders are always prompt and accurate.

Very surprised by the food here as it exceeded my expectations. The housemade bread with the olive oil to the calamari appetizer was good. The veal as a main course was excellent and was cooked to perfection. Everything was reasonably priced and their was a good atmosphere in the place.

Always good, always fresh, and wonderful service! I'm hooked on the crab cake appetizer, it is packed with crab meat on a mound of fresh greens and a light dressing...so good! The salmon, always cooked just right, and shrimp pasta is also very good. If your not into seafood they're Margherita pizza is awesome with just the right amount of... More

We went to Amerigo jin late July, 2015 and were nicely surprised at the waitress (Nicole) that helped us and the food was great. Our guests were saying it had been awhile since they had gone there and they were very happy with the service and the food was very good. We went for the early time on a Saturday... More

In my opinion, Amerigo is the most consistent restaurant in the Jackson metro area. I have been going here from the time I was in my early teens and I can honestly and truthfully say that every meal I have had has been too grade, the service impeccable and everything else that makes a dining experience a great one.

I was staying the night in ridgeland at a hotel because I was traveling to orange beach, anyways to the point. The food was really good, the pizza is NOT good but the tortellini was awesome and so is the fettuccine alfredo. The lasagna was very good as well. It was a little pricey, but not too bad, we ended... More

Small portions for mucho dinero here. They even charge you and extra $4.00 if you want a salad with your meal. $7 for one, very small crab cake app. The entrees were just okay as far as flavor and presentation. The bread and, get this, the olive oil has no taste. Service average. I can't believe this is the best... More

Huge portions of very good Italian fare in Ridgeland. Delicious seasonal offerings,and a nice intimate setting probably best suited for romance or business. The tables are very close in some places. Save room for dessert. Their tiramisu is out of this world!
