My wife and I have recently visited Amerigo for an 'early bird' supper during the week and we were very pleased with our visit. The facility was spotless and the staff very professional and attentive. The food was excellent (lasagna for me, shrimp pasta for her) and the early evening prices were very reasonable. Real traditional Italian food is abundant... More

My family and I have been dining at Amerigo's Italian Restaurant for the past 18 years. This restaurant consistently provides awesome service coupled with, most importantly, GREAT Italian food. A Very Good Wine Selection. Any Italian dish you have had elsewhere, you will definitely appreciate here. I don't care for white (dairy based) sauces; however, my wife and daughter do... More

Might not have the second servers name right. She was shadowing Rachael learning the ropes Friday night. These ladies were efficient and lovely at the same time. Had grilled fish, asparagus, and potatoes. It was spot on delicious. Dining alone sometimes feels awkward. These two made me feel special. Was in town for a race the next morning. In turn... More

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

It sounds like you've identified your favorite dishes - the Pasta Pomodoro is one of my favorites as well. As for the salad, I apologize for the sub-par lettuce you received on your recent order.

If you crave fresh veal parm or fettucini alfredo with your choice of extra large shrimp of grilled chicken, you have chosen the correct place. The atmosphere is very Italiano and the wait staff is both friendly and very well trained. They serve fresh facochia (sic?) bread made fresh daily with oilve oil and fresh cracked pepper.

Seafood pasta is amazing! My husband and I share it because it's so much food. The bread and olive oil (ask to add Parmesan) is very delicious.

We were happy to find this very popular restaurant, we went on a Sunday evening and it was very busy. Not many good places are open in Jackson on Sunday nights. We had about a 20 minute wait. The wait was worth the great selection of traditional Italian fare. I had a great veal dish and tortellini w crab meat... More
