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

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

Favored among locals, this restaurant provides good service, fair prices and nice ambiance. Tables are so close together it's impossible to have a conversation to yourselves. Wine menu was ok, though biased to certain types. Typical Italian bread service was fine. Cesar salad was swimming in dressing. My party was unable to finish due to the pool of dressing in... More

Hello, Thank you for your recent visit to Amerigo.

We frequent Amerigo at least once a week. The service is always supreme. If they get it wrong they will fix it. I love the mushroom fries, cheese sticks and crab cakes for appetizers. Now, the salmon with black bean salsa is superb. This dish is cooked to perfection. Get a side of angel hair pasta with scallion cream sauce.... More

Took a co-worker here based on reviews online. The place was bigger than I expected and the parking lot was almost full. I walked in and was greeted immediately, not many people waiting.

Haven't been to Amerigo's in Jackson for years but tonight it was just as perfect and delicious as always. Tried the chicken Marsala and was blown away. Group of 4 all had excellent meals and service.
