“Not what it is made out to be!”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

My family and I have heard such wonderful experiences about Amerigo's so we decided to try for ourselves. There was nothing that was special about the food to make me say that I would want to go back. We are from NOLA and maybe our expectations are set to high?
I love Eggplant Parmesan and wanted to try theirs. When it came out it smelled like it had been frozen and heated up. I will say that the red sauce was rich and tasty, just not enough to cover my pasta. My husband order the Chicken Alfredo with looked delicious, but it was cold and very little chicken. I will say the best part of our meal was the bread! I will not be going back anytime soon.

“Always delish!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Friday night at 7pm wait time was 35 minutes but we were seated in 10. Service is outstanding. Ribeye special was amazing; cooked to perfection. Goat cheese and penne was delightful. Can't go wrong with cheese fritters! Nice selection of wine.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

I went to this restaurant for the first time recently. They do not take reservations which is a shame as it is very crowded. The food is Italian, but by far not the best I have had in Jackson or elsewhere. The service was good and the hostess very helpful in making accommodations for us with the perfect table for our party of 5 adults and 2 kids. They do have nice choices for kids.

“Worth every effort”
Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

We checked in our hotel in Madison, MS next door to Bonefish Grill. We walked over out of convenience and were given a table. We were waiting for about ten minutes and never had a waiter. We walked out and drove five miles to Amerigo's what a difference in fine dining. The experience was wonderful. The crab cake was outstanding. The filet was fabulous. My wife had a seafood pasta special. Everything was wonderful. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.
