We have visited Amerigo in Memphis, and enjoyed it. Came here because of a previous good experience. Not disappointed. I had the blackened Trout which was excellent, wife had an Italian dish. Service was excellent, prices fair. Loved the bread that was brought to us. Would have Amerigo in any city that we visit.

Amerigo's has been my go-to restaurant for years. The food is never bad, the service is usually very good, and it has a decent atmosphere. Their specials are often fabulous, but it really doesn't matter because it is all good.

Delicious! The complimentary bread is fantastic. I ordered the special, lobster and shrimp ravioli, with lump crabmeat and crawfish tails in a yummy bisque-like sauce that made you want to lick the plate! There were tomatoes in there, too. The ravioli pasta was thin and fresh and wonderful. I also had the Caesar salad which was wonderful as well. It... More

We had dinner here with some friends who live in Jackson, MS. (We were visiting from NC.) The food was great. The service was even better. I was able to get my Chicken Margaraite fixed the way I like it, which wasn't anything close to what the menu actually had on it. The waiter didn't mind all my changes at... More

Just when I was about to lose faith in finding a restaurant in Jackson that had good food and service, we happened along this place. One of our friends kept hearing from the locals that this was the best restaurant in town so him and a couple of our other friends treated us to this place for our 17th Anniversary.... More

Upon arriving I was greeted and seated promptly and politely accomodated while I waited on my guest. The server was knowledgeable of the menu and made suggestions. I was on a special low carb diet and the chef had no issues making something that was off the menu! The atmosphere was very relaxing and pleasant for a nice evening for... More

My chicken tuscany was so good I almost ordered a second one to go! Awesome meal, only downside was that my credit card was charged twice by a... More

In the past we always had excellent service from Amerigo. This time not so much. We arrived at about 5:30pm to avoid the wait times later in the evening. We were seated immediately which I thought was great. Our waiter came shortly after. We already knew what we wanted so we ordered our drinks and meal right then. After receiving... More

A good restaurant for a business lunch. The food is always above-average, the prices are reasonable and they are fast. This restaurant is very well managed.

I ate at Amerigos last night and it was really good. Shrimp scampi was great, and the shrimp bisque was really good, as always. Our waiter Brian was very efficient and attentive. The early bird special was available with many choices. Portions were very large. Tarimasu to go topped off a really great meal. Bathrooms are always very clean.
