The food was very good and we were impressed by the servers effort on timing the courses, since we were not in a rush.

Enjoyed it still the day after
My husband and I have been there once before and have been wanting to come back for a long time - finally we did. It was perfect for what we wanted; the food is never disappointing and is above average; it has a wonderful romantic vibe; the prices are incredibly decent; and our waiter was most pleasant. I think it'll be easier for us to come back now more often with a great, fresh memory still in our mouths.

As always the food was decadent.
As always the food was decadent. The wine was good and my wife and I always love the make your own Antipasto platter. I had the chicken wrapped in bacon and the portion was HUGE. I have a hearty appetite and couldn't finish it all, which was appreciated as I feel $34 for a chicken leg, was a little expensive. The service was good, and as always we will be coming back in the future.

My boyfriend and I celebrated
My boyfriend and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary at Sugo. We didn't hesitate when selecting the Chef's Tasting Menu, which was 4 unique & beautifully presented courses. Our server - Gordon, was very attentive and his twist with the Prosecco and pear sorbet was a nice surprise.
Looking forward to our next fabulous evening at Sugo!

Fantastic sundried tomato
Fantastic sundried tomato basil soup starter.
The halibut was incredible.

Very good food, service
8 pm reso on Fri night, got there on time, tables were turning over more slowly than anticipated. We were given bar seats and prosecco while we waited, which was welcome and made the table wait a non-issue for us. Staff is friendly and professional, got a great table right by the window, food and wine were both delicious. Had the sirloin bruschetta, rib-eye for me, pork main for my husband, both lovely. It's pricey for a regular Friday night out, but we really enjoy going there occasionally. Love the room. Recommended.

Would recommend this place to anyone. Great food, ambiance, energy and most of all, best location in Inglewood.
5/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
My spouse has some food allergies. The chef was extremely accommodating in preparing pan seared halibut which was excellent. Kudos to the chef.
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
SIMPLY THE BEST!!!
Sugo has to be my favorite restaurant in Calgary! The food is always AMAZING, the service is incredible and I will always return for more!

Great italian food
Their antipastos are very small but good selection, then the bruschetas are really tasty and creative. Loved the roasted beef sirloin with aged provolone. For main dish I had the pan seared halibut with goat cheese and was delicious it was crispy and very moist and the marinated peppers were very tasty. I paired it with a white anselmi garganegga '10 and it was very good too.
For dessert i had the vanilla panacotta and was delicious I wasnt able to finish it because the portions are quite big. I really liked also the concept of clean and plain decorations .. and the service good as the food.
5/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wouldn't have changed a thing!
What an amazing dining experience from the second we got there....greeted by charming chef/owner Angelo (thanks for the Prosecco to start - nice touch!!)....on to the amazing wine, starters (try the bruschettas!) and amazingly delicious entree (I had the halibut - yummy!!). I will have to return to try the mozzarellas which are apparently hand-made by a local cheesemaker! Scott, our server, was fantastic... attentive (but not overly!) and very helpful :) Loved the limoncello...perfect ending to a perfect meal! I'll be back again on my next trip to Calgary! Best meal I had all week :)

Great food and service
Great Italian food without being so traditional. Traditional Italian is good (and they definitely had it with antipasto and bruschetta ) but it is refreshing not to see veal and chicken Parmesan on the menu. We shared the wild boar and it was tender and flavourful. A great savoury taste without being to powerful. They were great about sharing as well. Our server was friendly and attentive. Looked like lots of regulars too
5/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time to Sugo and our group (4 of us) without exception loved it! The food was absoultely fantastic. From the beet soup to the bruschetta and fried buffalo mozzerella to our entrees and dessert. Each dish was raved about and shared... "you've got to try this!" Atmoshpere is lovely and the music - while quietly in the background - was great too. Why this wasn't a 5 overall is that we sat for some time before we even were able to order a drink and we had to ask for bread to be brought out. Service was a bit slow to start off but it was busy and did improve as our evening went on. Will definitely go back.

Family of four celebrating a birthday.
I found the food to be absolutely excellent, but the appy portions are a bit of a puzzle to sort out.
The brushetta was excellent and enough for four to share but something like calamari is more fit for one and it includes a small bread portion to help absorb the sauce. We had planned to order 4 appys + the brushetta but the waiter said the portions were large and talked us out of it. We cut this down to two appys - Calamari and the braised prawns. The latter only came with two (large) prawns.
He must have meant the mains were large..... but that is not quite what I had taken from the conversation.
The mains were large and I have never had a better piece of hallibat anywhere.

Some of the best italian in Calgary
Definitely some of our favorite Italian in Calgary. Its fresh, the menu is always changing, and the service is top notch. Been here over half a dozen times in the past year and have never been disappointed. Decent italian wine list (though wouldn't mind seeing a larger list other than just Italian) and a strong (albeit small) beer menu. Highly recommended.
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
We always go with the Chef's
We always go with the Chef's selection and have never been disappointed. The server even asked us of there were any dislikes of food as well as alergies. One in the group did not want fish so when they served fish to the rest of us they recieved something different. IT was awesome.

The food here is very tasty, the flavors were perfect and unique. The waiter was a bit unfriendly at first but at the last minute found a smile. The wine was supurb for our meal selection and the desserts were well worth the try.

Watch our for partiers during Stamp
What started out as a lively quiet evening, turned into a bit of a forced eavesdropping session when some folks who had obviously been having a good time all afternoon were seated beside us. Loud loud loud. But that is the nature of Calgary during these 10 days inJuly. Food was excellent, as usual. Service got lower stars because the sserver gave our food to the couple on the other side of us. She made it right in the end, and it was overall a nice dinner out.
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
enjoyable food... basic ambiance
Small, intimate but van get noise. Meals are delicious. Service was fast. The room does not live up to the door and services

The service was outstanding.
The service was outstanding. We loved our server he was really familiar with the menu and wine list and any questions or requests were promptly looked after.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We opted for the four course Chef's tasting. I wondered if it would fill us up but the portions were very generous. Lots of personal attention in a very intimate little restaurant. We would go back.

Hot and Cold at Sugo
Food is always excellent, lunch or dinner. Service is hit and miss, depending on the mood of the server.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant is comfortable and relaxing. The staff is attentive and helpful. The stuffed chicken was moist and the stuffing was delicate. The side vegetables were tasty.

Dan and Maria Dinner out
The olives and parmesan cheese starter was delightfully old school Italy. Try the home made jam and parmesan cheese on the accompanying toast "Bouche Amuse"
Maria had the carbonara which was inspired.
I had the halibut and frankly it was disappointing and dry. The goat cheese topping so so. The veggies we well done and presented well- could have been cooked more but this is the method du jour for veggies.
The table setting and atmosphere were excellent. Our overworked server was gracious and patient with us. Overall 4 of 5.
P.S. Carbonara (blacked 'like carbon') used to be darkened with black pepper and yes with bacon. One thing about Sugo's carbonara is who cares what they call it- it's great!

Really nice lunch
I've dined at Sugo a few times, but usually for dinner. I've always enjoyed it. Lunch was a great experience. It was quiet and not too crowded, the service was attentive and fast, and the food was excellent.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service and Great Food
Can't say enough about a perfect evening. Wait staff was attentive and friendly and the food was fresh, innovative and delicious!
We have the Chet's tasting 4-course and were delighted. When can we go back?
8/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food, great service!
A gem in Inglewood! Every dish was excellent - pasta was simple, flavourful. Salads were wonderful. Highly recommend.

Great Quality and Fresh
Took two business collegues there for dinner and we went for the chef's surprise 4 course menu. Was excellent. Great value for the quality and quantity. The collegue whom was not from out of town, said she would return with friends to experience another tasting menu! We'll be back!
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our group opted for the four course Chef surprise and we were all very pleased with the interesting combinations and flavors of the meal.
Great service, great food. A little loud but then we were probably the loudest group in there as well so not complaining but it would be too loud to be considered a romantic hotspot.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service and food selection
Service and food selection was outstanding. Calami in Tomato Sauce was excellent. Halibut and simple Veggies were outstanding. Only complaint No Big Rock Beer. Traditional Ale is a must in a First Class Eatery like this one.

I took a client to Sugo for a business lunch. The food / table / ability to chat / discuss was great. Service was unfriendly from the point of being seated to order taking to paying for the bill.

My wife and I had the Chef's Selection coupled with the wine pairing. Simply fantastic!!!! The courses were absolutely delicious and were specifically not what she or I would have chosen on our own. Was a fantastic evening out.

Happy Birthday Dinner
Had a superb birthday celebration here. Everyone was exceptional. The food and wine were top notch..Home made..divine!

We eat at this restaurant as often as we can and every time it is awesome! Fabulous food and passionate people. Another Inglewood treasure.

A long time favourite
We have been going to Sugo for the past 11 years and the food has always been amazing. Outstanding menu choices and fresh food cooked by chefs who truly love what they do.We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary and once again, another memorable evening. Thanks Sugo for making our 10th so special. Sugo has always been one of our favourite Calgary restaurants, we highly recommend and will definitely be back!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been here before and already knew it was wonderful! Always a treat, can't wait to come back again. Thank you for making our girls night perfect!

Excellent menu with a very
Excellent menu with a very good variety that appears to change on a regular basis. Presentation and portion sizes are very good. The Smoked Ahi Tuna Bruschetta was amazing. Three different appetizers and four different entrees were enjoyed by all of us. Service was very attentive but not overbearing. Would go back. This was our first visit. We are from out of town visiting family living in Inglewood.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
good, good, always good
Always great food, in an great part of town - parking is ALWAYS found in Inglewood.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and fantastic service! I requested a specific table and it was all ready for us when we got there! We filled the table with food and shared everything and they kindly split our pasta dish onto two plates. So nice!
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great little bites
We opted for the small bites, which were on average $9.00 each. I'd say the portions were fair to maybe slightly small on some of it, but they were tasty. We tried the smoked duck, the chorizo, some delicious firm cheese and the cream cheese stuffed jalapeños. It was just enough for replacing dinner with snacks and having some wine. Our server was just excellent, very helpful, making suggestions that were bang-on and pleasant. My only complaint would be the boring bread that was served with it. It was like it was dried out, rather than toasted. A brush of olive oil or butter to brown them slightly golden would look and taste better. Other than that, great. We'd go back.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
A wonderful evening out
The food was beyond expectations, wonderful service with friendly professional wait staff. Would love to return in the near future.
Really a hidden gem
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great spot for great food
We've been to Sugo's many times and I must admit that as time goes on, the food, wine and atmosphere just gets better. Food offerings are not "bleeding edge". Instead we see interesting rustic Italian takes on what one could describe as mainstream Italian fare. Portions are good, not excessive, and the blends of flavours are always well thought out. Real table linens and a decent wine list round out the offering. You can find a quiet corner or chose the "long table" to enjoy your meal.
For those of us that are gluten free, pasta dishes can be made gluten free as well, which is a real treat and doesn't restrict what we can eat.
I would recommend Sugo's all day long as a go-to place.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have gone to Sugo on and off since they opened as they are in my neighbourhood. For the first few years it was hit and miss on the food especially when the owners were concentrating on getting WAP up and running. In the last number of months I have rediscovered Sugo and my dinners have been excellent. My partner and I love to cook so it takes a lot to impress us. They have certainly hit their stride as of late. I would recommend them to anyone. I had the orecchiette pasta the other night, and it was delicious. I was with 5 friends and everyone raved about their meal. Can't wait go back and try the lamb osso buco.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was simple and classic but nothing was off or out of place. The service was not overbearing and our server was exceptionally knowledgeable and charming. Great experience. Beautiful ambience. Lovely neighbourhood.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We love Sugo's
we come here regularly and the chef's tasting menu is always well worth the price for the excellent thought, creativity and talent that has gone into it.
you will not go wrong at Sugos!
Nicole and Mandy.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was second time to Sugo our experience was better than the first time. Waiter suggested a wine which we did not like a second bottle was brought that was more to our liking - no questions asked. The food was outstanding - flavours, presentation and service beyond. Thanks to the staff for a great time!
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Hosted a business dinner with colleagues from across the country. Started with antipasto to share with the table which included olives, a couple of different types of meat and cheeze, and cheeze wrapped in eggplant. A hit with everyone at the table. Several of the guests had pasta, while others have a stuffed chicken dish or house roasted pork tenderloin. Everyone was pleased with their main courses. Kudos to our server who kept the water and wine glasses topped up. The courses were nicely spaced. Our party left feeling quite satisfied. Thanks to the staff at Sugo for another excellent evening.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food....appetizers were great we had a little picnic board. The main course was awesome as well, so much food couldn't eat it all. Enjoyed the wine too! The service was excellent as the people working there are very tentative to their patrons. Only bad thing is that is was a very cold day outside and since the restaurant is in an old building the air temperature inside was quite chilly.
