    Booking on Open table was a breeze. Arrived on time and we were seated right on time. We were a party of 6 and all service was outstanding. Owner even came out to explain some of the specials and to guide us on our menu choices. Our pre drinks to appertiser's to our main course seemed to just flow at a good pace. We would diffinatly recommend Sugos as a great place to enjoy friends and great food. This was our second visit and it only seems to get better each time we visit. Try it! You won't reget it!

    Lovely every time we come (once a quarter or so). The appetizers, which change often, are not to be missed. The "value wine" selection is just fine. In fact, close your eyes when you point at an item on the menu--whatever comes, it will be perfect.

    I have been here before during the week and have been completely satisfied with the creative menu and friendly service. On a recent Saturday night the food was still as good as during previous visits, but the service was a bit disorganized and the timing was off. Our starters arrived at 3 different times. Then the entrees arrived before we finished our starters.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/7/2014
    The food was extremely good and the service was just fine until the end. I was with two friends and it was not even 9:00 (our reservation was for 6:45 and we were seated a few minutes before 7); we had finished our meal and were just chatting. There was only one couple in the room with us, so it was not like they were waiting to seat other diners. The waitress came over first and asked if she could take the check and did. Several of the wait staff kept coming over to our table one at a time and we got the distinct impression that they could not wait for us to get out of there, so we left. As we left, they shut down that dining room and the waitress rushed out of the restaurant and left - I guess she was ready to go home.

    Mr. C was more than a cordial host. He and his lovely wife welcomed us into their restaurant and spent time with us explaining the featured menu options and methods of preparation. This is definitely a unique dining experience and there is nothing on the menu that is not delicious and a feast for the eyes as well.

    You can not go wrong at Sugos, whether you're there for a dinner of "small plates" or are ready for one of their creative main dishes, you'll never be disappointed. Service was excellent, with the waitress knowing the menu by memory, and willing to give recommendations. I think we made it almost all the way through the small plate menu. Great for a date night, anniversary or a business meeting.

    Sugo was recommended by a friend. The restaurant itself is charming and the décor was sleek and tasteful. Our server, Peter, was great! He was prompt, attentive, and even treated us to a scoop of vanilla gelato. The owner came by and chatted with us. Overall, we received very friendly service. The Chicago Prime did not disappoint. The meat was perfectly cooked, flavorful, and juicy. The Caesar salad was delicious. The romaine was crisp and the croutons were tasty. This was a great spot for dinner. The restaurant was perfect for families, couples, and large parties. All three were present during our stay. I highly recommend Sugo!

    First time there with out of town guests. The experience was wonderful and it was a big hit with our guests! The owner's personal visit to our table along with an amazing server made it a great time. Our only criticism was it was super loud and difficult to hear in the main dining room. A somewhat quieter setting would have taken the experience to the next level! We will be back! Its our new favorite!

    I so wanted to give this restaurant a high rating - our waitress Rebecca was detailed, doting and made every dish sound wonderful. The manager walked by several times checking if everything was all right. Our water glasses were constantly being filled. The atmosphere was subdued and very relaxing. BUT.....the food was not as good as I expected. Our dishes were brought promptly but the bread was basic, their signature meatball starter did not have much flavor and the bacon wrapped dates were just OK. My husband was not at all impressed by the bracciole. Maybe we tried the wrong dishes (I ordered the swordfish special). However I doubt we will be going back here.

    From the outset you know you are about to experience something special. The moment we walked through the door we were warmly welcomed by not one, but three smiling greeters. We were immediately escorted to our table where it seemed an army of Sugo staff catered to our every need. Impressively, Mr. C himself took the time to come to our table and describe the different elements that make Sugo's menu so incredible. This is one dining experience not to be missed!

    The last time I dined at Sugo was approx 6-8 years ago in Roswell and remembered loving the wide selection. We shared the Caprese salad & were thoroughly impressed. I ordered the lasagna and she ordered Federico's Braciole. Her Braciole was delicious as expected. My lasagna was nothing like a lasagna at all. As much as I appreciate unique dishes, it's hard to take a staple Italian dish and interpret it so loosely. Served in a baked ziti-type dish, I had two bites of soupy cheese & sausage. Our waiter approached as I was looking confusedly at the dish & immediately offered to get me another dish. I quickly received the Black Truffle Pasta, but had my heart set on authentic lasagna. Excellent service, but I left disappointed.

    My husband and I have been going here for years. We first dined here to see if it was a good spot for a rehearsal dinner (it is) and have continued to dine here for anniversaries and birthdays. This time, it was our four year anniversary. We enjoyed every bit. I would say the best things on the menu are the bacon wrapped dates, meatballs, Chicago prime, and hanger steak. Don't forget the chocolate cake!

    Once again, an evening was capped with another flawless visit to one of my favorite restaurants - Sugo. The proprietors, Federico and Nancy, are there to insure their remarkably inventive cuisine is served with the proper educated enthusiasm. It makes for an always enjoyable and delicious adventure that never gets old. This time we tried the Brachiole, the North Atlantic Salmon and the Stuffed Chicken - all different - all simply wonderful! Sugo ... Bella!

    Every course was well prepared, delicious and staff was great. Johns Creek is lucky to have Sugo. Flavors were all off the charts. Walnut stuffed bacon wrapped dates w/romesco sauce and spanikopita appetizers were perfect. Mains were delectable. Frederico's pork is a MUST. Desserts were also very good (baklava cheesecake & 00 choc cake).
