Great service and great food! Had crab cake to start, Caesar salad and sketti and it was solid! Service was great! You will not be disappointed! I recommend sitting at bar with Tara.

Visiting Jackson for the first time, checked this out. Wonderful service and our server, Elizabeth, could not have been more attentive to our needs. Two of our party were vegan and do not like spicy food. There was absolutely no problem changing items to what they wanted and their pizza was superb. I had salad- perfect. My husband had shrimp...

We've been coming to Amerigos for 25 years. It's always excellent. The portobello mushroom salad is large enough to split. They will do a half salad, though it is not in the menu. The three cheese tortellini with crab and garlic cream sauce is the most decadent pasta I've had! Always great service! There are two locations, but we still... More

This place is so good! It can be super crowded and hard to get a table some nights but well worth the rate. The cheese fritter appetizers are melt in your mouth good. The lasagna is my favorite dish while my husband prefers one of their seafood dishes. I do wish their tables weren't placed so close together. Definitely the... More

My wife and I have recently visited Amerigo for an 'early bird' supper during the week and we were very pleased with our visit.

I eat at Amerigo at least once a week for years. The specialty pizza with meat/sausage is a great bargain and delicious. The meatballs are the best. I usually get Pasta Pomodoro, spaghetti with tomatoes, capers, and garlic. Yum, yum. However, I've asked the management repeatedly to stop using "bagged" lettuce. I broke down and had a salad last night,... More

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. We also cater! Our Sales Manager will work with you to create a customized menu for your special event. Delivery and full-service catering options are available.
