Our first menu was created on November 14th 2001 and since then we have had more than 1,000 different menus, each designed with love and using the best product available.Continued

  • "The pasta dishes are fantastic. The roasted romaine hearts are amazing. I had a sirloin, not so good. Tough and tasteless. Should try a different cut and dress it up."

  • "Excellent meal! Started with the day's crostini - strawberries with balsamic reduction, prosciutto and marscapone. Perfect balance of sweet and savory. It was a large appetizer though, next time I'd plan to share. Main was the chicken breast, set on seasonal vege and topped with roasted red peppers. The pickled beet was an unexpected delicious counterbalance to the sauce. For dessert I enjoyed the meyer lemon tart. Lucious lemon curd in a delicate crust, topped with berries and cream. Excellent, but almost too tart...or maybe I finished the berries too quickly. Excellent and attentive service. My only complaint: several large parties in the room meant at times the noise level was irritating-not sure how they'd fix that however."

  • "Our first time at Sugo did not disappoint. We started with the buffalo mozzarella salad and arancini balls - yum yum yum! My dinner companion continued to enjoy the thought of his meal of crispy halibut long after the last portion was eaten. My pasta dish (Spaghetti with tuna, zucchini and wine/basil sauce) was light and delicious and perfect for what I was desiring. We both appreciated the simple yet delicious flavors. All the ingredients were fresh and fit well with each thing on the plate. The only thing I did not love was their pricey glass of red house wine. A secondary glass of an Amarone house wine was much better."

  • "This was my second visit to Sugo my first visit was with a group and since it was my husbands work function I didn't get a good feel for the restaurant. My latest visit was for lunch with a friend. We chose to split an appetizer and we each chose the pan seared halibut. The food was very good my only critique, our waitress brought our appetizer and entre at the same time. It's my understanding that the appetizer always precedes the main dish. I must point out that we had a reservation and yet when we arrived the young man that seated us seemed to be very confused almost as though he wasnt sure how to seat us it was quite uncomfortable. I would definitely return to sugo the food is great and energetic atmosphere."

  • "Went here for a business lunch and the food was delicious. It was not very busy and so was quiet and we were not rushed. The server, however, was slow and did not come around very often. When she did, she was not as friendly as I would have expected from such a nice restaurant."

  • "Took my wife out for her birthday with her parents. We had looked at Sugo prior, but never tried it. We love Inglewood and all it offers and Sugo fits the billing perfectly. The food was incredible. Pea Risotto with Veal, Duck Breast, Bacon wrapped pork T-Loin and Game hen. Generous portions of proteins all around and side veggies were a nice mix of choices with nothing to turn you nose. Ambiance was great. Sat at a window table on a quiet Monday night. Service was good. Felt a little abandoned at times. Had a rather loud group 2 tables away and the volume carries in the small restaurant. Al around a great evening and our expectations were not disappointed. Note: rotating menu, don't go looking for standard fare. Look to be adventurous."

  • "If you want a great meal that your mind's eye can see (not to mention taste) then become a frequent guest. Very addictive."

  • "We found the restaurant to fit our needs well. There was just two of us out for a quiet dinner. Food was very good and service friendly and up to expectations. We enjoyed the menu and the location was very nice inside with a warm and welcoming feel. It has a "home spun" feel which we like. "

  • "Took our daughter there for a Mother/daughter outing and we were disappointed with her meal. The pasta was a seafood linguine with a white wine garlic sauce. It arrived with Squid Ink which put off my 13 year old. She would not have ordered it if she knew that it had squid ink in it. The description on the menu should have mentioned that. When we asked about it the server checked with the kitchen and came back and said that it did indeed have squid ink and agreed that it was not mentioned on the menu description. (Obviously because it was a black sauce it had the ink!) That is all he did...they did not offer to bring her something else or take it off the bill. I thought that this was poor. Won't be back. "

  • "Our first impression of Sugo was anything but good! The Maitre d ( female lady)that met us and took us to a raised seating area and was anything but obliging. All four ( 4 ) of the individuals in our party were over 75 years old and since the restaurant was almost empty, (we had arrived early), there were plenty of ground level tables for 4 persons. One of our party could not even get up to the raised seating that she showed us to so we asked for a table on the ground level. With a sincere frown and no pleasantries we were shown to a nice table with a very good waitress and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The Maitre d never did come by our table again, which, was the only negative experience of the evening."

  • "Sugo is a fabulous place for a special occasion dinner with a loved one. The price is affordable and the food is wonderful. Service is impeccable and they go the extra mile to make your dinner memorable. Inglewood has such a great feel and it's so nice Sugo is there to bring people into that cool area of Calgary! "

  • "Service was poor. We waited 20 minutes before someone came to our table. She hardly said 2 words to us, threw the menus down and walked away. We had lamb shank and tenderloin which were just ok. The tenderloin was over cooked. I left feeling unsatisified. May be a different experience with a different server. "

  • "If you're looking for a 5-Star Italian dining experience with a casual flair then Sugo is your kind of restaurant. The food, especially the pasta is outstanding. Try the gnocchi. My family has been going there for over ten years and we are never disappointed!"

  • "From a party of 4 there was 2 of us who had the Arctic Char on Friday evening. It was for both of us the most overcooked and dry fish we have ever eaten in this city. Would not recommend this dish to anyone."

  • "My husband and I ate at Sugo for our date night. . We love Italian food, but my husband is allergic to gluten. It is challenging to find a great Italian food restaurant that can accommodate our need for gluten free food. Sugo had excellent gluten free options and all of the food was delicious. We definitely plan on going back one day."

  • "We got a 4 course chefs meal and the apply was fantastic, the pasta was good but the fish that came with it was over cooked. The main was a chicken dish that was fantastic and the desert was nice. If the waiter had not been snippy and been remotely attentive the experience would have been great but really it was just…..meh."

  • "The service was excellent along with the food. I love the caprése salad! For my main course I had the gnocchi which were also very tasty. I love the way the food stays hot in the dish. The made to order factor is also great because I know that the food is fresh."

  • "The food was fantastic but it was so noisy that we had to raise our voice to talk to one another. They screwed up our reservation request and gave our table away to someone. The waiter was not very attentive - we had to request for hot water three times. When it came to the bill we requested to have it split in half but he was so busy tending to others that he charged us for the full bill - good thing my husband checked before he ok the transaction or that would have been a very large tip. Nice waiter just needs to be more attentive to his table."

  • "There were 4 of us and our waiter Scott did an excellent job timing our meals and allowing us to enjoy the evening. We all had the Chefs table 4 course meal and you did not disappoint. Each course built on the last right throught to the final desert. Although very busy we were not rushed as a matter of fact they let us take our time and joy catching up with old friends. The atmosphere was very up beat and Scotts timing of food was perfect. Highly recommend for a evening out."

  • "I hosted a client dinner for 12 guests and could not ask for anything better. The service was attentive and professional. The food plating and presentation was appealing and appetizing. The food was delicious and ample. The libations were flowing and delicious. Overall, SUGO was an excellent dining experience and my Calgary-based guests all stated that they would definitely return. I know I will on my next trip to Calgary!"

  • "The food was great. There were a couple of small annoyances however. 1) The restaurant appears to be in two sections - one with "real" tables, and the other set up more like a pub, with benches and tall stools for seating. The latter section is also by the entrance, so you would get a blast of cool air coming in every time someone opened the door. This tended to detract from the ambiance of a restaurant where you expect to spend a significant amount of money on a nice evening out. 2) Charging $1 for "Q water", which is just filtered tap water, and tepid at that. I can see charging a little extra for bread (this is all noted in the menu at the bottom in very small print), but the water too? That's just cheap, considering how much we spent"

  • "we went there for lunch and while the food was good, it wasn't special or unusual. I must give them credit though for addressing my dietary need, and substituting with a relly good option. The service is certainly not fast, so if you plan to attend this restaurant, allow extra time for their slow service. I know they say it's because they prepare everything by hand and as the orders come in but, we were there for 20 minutes before the waiter even came to the table. In the end it was fine, but with the plethora of restaurants in Calgary and particularly in Ingelwood, this would not be my first choice. that said, you will not likely be disappointed if you choose to go there (as long as you add extra time to your lunch for the slower service!)"

  • "We dined on February 11, 2014 and despite being a larger group our server was absolutely fabulous ensuring all our needs were met and all drinks were full at all times. I believe his name was Jamie, he gave me a great recommendation regarding the Rib Eye and boy was he right. The experiences we've had at Sugo are always outstanding and always worth the drive for our family. We will most certainly be back."

  • "I had the pleasure of taking clients to a thank you lunch and we were treated to a wonderful Sugo experience. The service was attentive, charming and efficient, and the food was simply wonderful - beautifully presented, bright fresh flavours and perfect portions. I was also pleased by the reasonable price point of the fare at Sugo, dining in Calgary has gotten expensive, but the owners of Sugo seemed to have held the line on the their pricing. Our party of three ordered a glass of wine each with our entrees, and enjoyed coffees and desserts and the tab was under $100. If you haven't been to Sugo in a while, I encourage you to head to Inglewood and enjoy beautiful food in charming surroundings."
