I never write reviews but this food was outstanding. We’ve had a lot of good Italian food but this food was complex. Each bite produced different flavors, all a mix between sweet and savory. We started with the mushroom and truffle ravioli and had to get more bread to dip in the sauce because it was that good it shouldn’t be wasted. I had the Aunt Lenas chicken and it was absolutely amazing. The caramelized onions were switch which paired so well with the prosciutto and the melted mozzarella mixed with the sauce just was amazing. My husband had the filet special which has a candied walnut topping and it sat on a bed of caramelized onions. Again, each bite was savory but sweet. The filet was served with a way better version of jalapeño poppers. They used a different type of pepper, marscapone cream cheese and deep fried it. I’m not one for peppers but this was amazing. Our server was also great, knowledgeable with a ton of recommendations. Throughout the dinner at least 3 different people who I assume to be managers or owners walked by to make sure we were enjoying our evening. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Food was great as always. The meatball is a must, best ever! So is the flatbread. The scallops always delicious. Aunt Lena’s chicken and the chicken parm are always amazing. Service always great, especially Crystal. Nancy and Mr C are always great hosts. Looking forward to my next visit.

We were celebrating two birthdays and Sugo treated the celebrants to a wonderful dessert and all of us to champagne. The server was very attentive and the owners came out to greet us and explain about their family recipes. Wonderful restaurant and night out at Sugo!

Sugo's is one of our favorite restaurants. The Castellucci family always thank you for coming and make terrific recommendations for wine and menu items. The Meatball al Sugo is one of my favorite appetizers, and it is large enough for 2 to share. The Cannelloni is one of their best entree's but we also love Aunt Lena's Chicken, the Eggplant Parmesan, and Scallops Piccata. For dessert, the Bomba's and Gelato are incredible! This restaurant is our go to for birthdays and special occasions!

It was a first-time dinner at Sugo for my wife and me. Everything was exceptional. Sugo is a special place, run by a family that obviously cares - it shows in every facet.

This is a high-end restaurant, serving authentic Mediterranean food. I have seen one or two negative reviews: these are from people who are on used to European cooking, as opposed to the Americanised version of Italian food for example that is just pressingly ubiquitous in the USA.

Food is always good. the owner and his wife are excellent. They greet you at the front door. They come to your table and make sure everything is ok. They sure their family stories with you. They make you feel like family every time we come in. Great service! Great food! Love the place. My coupon expired. The owner said their is no expired coupon here. You can still use it no matter what. Great service!

The meatball is a must, can’t go and not get one. The flatbread is the same, delicious. They had the veal chop special that was amazing, too bad I waited more than a year for it. Please have that dish more often. Looking forward to my next visit. Feels like a true home cooked meal. Service is always great, but even better with Crystal.

Went there Saturday evening and enjoyed a Double Birthday celebration. The food was fantastic and the service even better. It was crowded but it did not cause any delays and my friend enjoyed her first visit to Sugo. My only problem was trying to figure of what I wanted to eat. Guess I will have to go back and work my way down through the menu.

We have always found the food at Sugo excellent but take issue with the congestion and noise level. On numerous occasions we have made a reservation in advance only to learn a day or two before our dinner that they have scheduled a "Wine Tasting Dinner" or "Cooking Class" or "Back to School Pre Fixe Meal" or other special event that only serves to increase congestion and noise level. Our last dinner there was so noisy we could hardly hear the waitress. Too bad they can't manage it better ... the food is very good.
