The owners were very attentive. They asked if it was a special occasion and it was our anniversary. They surprised us with 2 cannolis for dessert. The food was excellent.

Their charcuterie platter was beautiful and delicious. Our servers were attentive and professional. Our entrees were good but not great. The plates were not warm or hot. The hangar steak was cooked perfectly but the veggies and beans served with it were bland.

Sugo does a great job making you feel welcome. That began with making the reservation and continued throughout the entire meal. We had the caprese salad which was very fresh and delicious. Then I had the eggplant parmigiana which I switched the zucchini for spinach and was good. It does not come with much marinara but they will happily get you more if you ask. My friend had the beef ravioli and she enjoyed it. Overall a good meal.

Sugo is absolutely amazing. There was a bit of pressure on this meal as I'd been wanting to take my family from NY to Sugo for over a dozen years and after talking it up so much, there was a lot greater chance to disappoint than to amaze. Well, amaze it did. Even to my wife and kids who'd been there before. The appetizers, the drinks, the service and the entrees. The dishes we can get there are unlike anything we've seen on other menu's. You can really understand the hard wok and passion that goes into their creations by once you've had the dining experience (which includes Federico's overview of the dishes)

I have been going to Sugo consistently for years for every occasion or no occasion at all. As with all the CHG restaurants, the food, service, ambiance, and attention to detail and customer experience is exceptional. I’m so blessed Sugo is in my neighborhood and I can get an in-town foodie and excellent wine or craft cocktail experience even out here in the burbs!! But I’d drive to it wherever it was even if it wasn’t...

Second time was even better than our first. Dinner with another couple, started at 6:30 and left at 9:40. We enjoyed the charcuterie platter and the bacon wrapped dates with wine to start, went through salads, entrees and dessert, and of course more wine - all delicious, and never felt rushed as we enjoyed our evening. Just a delightful place!

They couldn’t have been more kinder. Excellent service from Hunter, food delicious, knowledgeable bar tender helped me find my new favorite red wine and the owners were very gracious. Sugo would be my favorite regular restaurant if I lived in the area. Having had to evacuate from Florence, Sugo was a fabulous treat. Thank you Sugo!

My only quirk was the small seating area. We were led to sit beside the bar where, what appeared to be, a group of colleagues stood around, drank beer, and talked at a pretty considerable volume. There was a separate seating area, but it seemed to have been closed off with drapes. Also, our waitress extended the courtesy of moving us to a larger table, as the one for 2 was way too small to accommodate our drinks and appetizers.
The food, on the other hand, was, overall, flavorful, but I was surprised that the spanakopita was a basic and bland as it tasted.
Our waitress Samantha was very accommodating and gracious. Her service was near immaculate. Mr. C, the owner of the establishment, came over to greet us as we dined and spoke extensively about the menu, as well as made suggestions.
Overall, the dining experience was a nice one. I would consider visiting agin if I were not forced to sit beside the bar.

Sugo has always hit the mark. This was the first time my husband had gone to Sugo because he needs Gluten free. The menu has great GF options, however the staff and the chef went out of their way to give him options and make suggestions of what was the best. He said it was the best GF pasta he has ever had and combined with the staff was great! Thank you!

We had a really good start to our dinner. However, when one entree was served, it was discovered an ingredient—mussels—had been used. I am allergic. They were very kind to make it for me without mussels. In the process, the fish was not properly cooked, the sauce was runny, and the mushrooms were left off. Every other thing ordered was wonderful. I was disappointed in the sea bass I ordered.

How did I not know that this little gem of a place existed?

It's in an odd location, the backend of a small strip mall BUT it was very nice.

We were greeted by the proprietor, which was a nice touch.

The food was delicious, served at the correct temperature and nicely presented. They had a nice wine list and the sever helped make a nice selection to accompany the meal.

Our server, Frazier, was outstanding, he timed the meal perfectly, was helpful, warm without being intrusive. Be certain to ask for him.

I highly recommend this place for dinner and know that we will be back.

As always, we enjoyed our dining experience at Sugo's. Really enjoyed the thoughtful and anticipatory service provided by Crystal! My husband always enjoys the bread, and this time he had the pork braciole and thought it was excellent. It was a special treat to have lasagna on the menu and it did not disappoint!

We had an outstanding meal. Party of 6, we were seated right away with reservations. It was our first visit and our server was a complete pro. Owner stopped by and told us Sugo's family story and described featured dishes. We ordered several of the recommended apps and entrées. Everything was delicious. We would all go back.

The food was outstanding. I had the shrimp scampi and asked for a couple of scallops to be added. Delish! The scallops were cooked to perfection! This is not your run of the mill scampi, it's rustic and delicious! We had the beet salad and rustic salad as starters. Both were outstanding.

Service was a little slow but it was crowded. All in all a wonderful meal!
