Amerigo's will not disappoint you! And, arriving before 6:00 p.m. for the early-bird specials and pricing doesn't disappoint this accountant! Every food item I've had here has been amazing...you must order the cheese fritters!

I celebrated my birthday here a few years ago while visiting and had the opportunity to enjoy dinner here again. I wasn't disappointed even though I didn't have my favorite artichoke spinach dip this time. I had the special, seafood over Angel hair pasta. The pasta was superb. I'm not sure if they make it themselves but it tasted like... More

Its good food but not really the big deal people say it is. Some dishes are great and some not. Service is much better than average. Terramissou is aweful. Nothing like the real thing. No lady fingers, just plain cake with stuff dumped on it.

Hello, Thank you for your recent visit to Amerigo. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us. I was sorry to hear that you do not care for some of our dishes. It is true that our Tiramisu is not traditionally made with lady fingers. We offer our spin on this Italian favorite with sponge cake... More

What a busy restaurant. Had a 10 minute wait not bad for how busy they were. We're seated and within minutes our server was there asking for our drink order. Bread was brought out and our orders taken. I ordered the minestrone soup which was filling and very good. I also ordered the bow tie pasta salad. What a huge... More

I love this place. The food is awesome. So is the service. I visit this restaurant often. I love the veal and chicken piccata. The tiramisu is the best I've ever had.

No matter what you choose at Amerigo, it will be delicious. I had the snapper special: the fish and sides were cooked perfectly, and they stayed hot as the plate came to the table very hot itself. The atmosphere is cozy, the waitstaff friendly and attentive, and everything I've ever had there is really good. Though I have always enjoyed... More

One of my favorite restaurants in the area and if you are looking for a great Italian restaurant in town I highly recommend this one. The veal piccata is my favorite but they have other excellent entrees as well.

I'm a long time customer. Their Italian dishes are perfection and if you have to wait for a table, be sure to checkout the bar area as they have a great wine selection. They do everything well. Some of our family favorites are the Calamari Fritti for an appetizer. The Flame-grilled Portobello Mushroom is a salad but could easily be a... More
