Amerigo Restaurant Review: If you’re seeking Italian fare created for North American palates, Amerigo is your place. Predictable lasagnas, spaghetti dishes, chicken Parmesan and, of course, pizza make up much of the menu. But more adventurous diners might enjoy the smoked chicken ravioli with flash-fried Roman artichokes. Some dishes, such as smoked Gouda and jalapeño mac ‘n’ cheese, stray completely from the Italian theme yet remain popular. There’s a kids’ menu of finger foods, and a gluten-free menu is available by request. The wine list is short but somewhat impressive for a chain restaurant, and the craft beer line-up features a nice selection of brews. For dessert, try the regionally made gelato from Sweet Magnolia Ice Cream Company in Clarksdale, Miss.
