Went here for my daughters birthday. Never visited this restaurant prior so didn’t know what to expect. The food was absolutely amazing. It was very busy so we did have to wait a while for the food but that was ok with us. We had the meatball and baradda (think that’s what it was called) as an appetizer. Very very good! I had the shrimp scampi and would definitely go back just for that. Highly recommended.

The food is so good. We had the meatball and octopus appetizers and both were fantastic. I had the salmon entree and she had the whitefish entree (I forgot the name of the dish) but they were both perfect. The staff was very attentive. We neither waited nor were we rushed. I have zero complaints.

What a wonderful dining experience! It's a beautiful restaurant with excellent service and a fabulous menu. We were greeted and shown to the table promptly. Our server was very personable and did a great job giving us tips about the menu. The salads were huge and so good. You could easily split one. We both ordered the Eggplant Parmesan and the portions were so generous. The Sugo Eggplant Parmesan is unique with a great sauce and other veggies besides the eggplant. Fantastic choice! One thing that made the experience special was that both Mr. and Mrs. Castellucci stopped by the tables in our area at different times to make sure we liked our food and were happy with the service. You don't get that kind of personal attention at just any restaurant. If you are looking for great food and wonderful service, Sugo is the perfect choice!

Wrote a positive review after our first visit to this location we were so impressed so we booked again and it was night and day difference. Rather than a family atmosphere it was more like eating at a Mexican restaurant that just wants to turn tables. We felt like everything was a rush no notice of specials forget asking for a additional drink. Food came out so fast we had not even finish appetizers, even the drinks came out after appetizers.

So well the food was good not as great as the first time the service was terrible we will not be going back to this location.

I come at least once a month, but I think it may have been the busiest I've seen so far probably because of a wedding party that was on the other side. Our server seemed to be new at this, as she couldn't really describe the new dish we were wondering about and also didn't update us on our orders that took about an hour to be delivered to our table. She was very polite and kind but we didn't get the best service as far as speed but it was busy enough and although my steak came out a lot more rare than what I had ordered, it was still good. We tried calling the server and get her attention too, but everyone was just a little too busy. Nothing to not stop coming for though, I still love this place.

Everything was great, as usual; however, it was very busy and when we checked in for our reservation, we were told it would be approximately 25-30 minutes before we would be seated. No biggie, we ordered drinks and waited. Then, the owner came around to see how we were doing. When we told him what we were told, he immediately found us a table. He’s always very nice, so we really appreciated that. The food was off-the-chart delicious. Always love the dining experience at Sugo!

We’ve eaten at Sugo’s maybe 7 or 8 times in the past. It was great and we enjoyed going, but recently (past 6 months) there had been a noticeable decline in the quality of the food, either that or we were just unlucky, For instance; the cannelloni was luke warm, similarly the flat breads.
The cream topping came last night and believe me, I rarely complain or leave bad reviews…We had the entire family at the restaurant as the kids were leaving for University. For Starters we ordered 2 dates in bacon (which were fantastic) and 2 flatbreads. The dates came out but the flatbreads lagged by 15 minutes and were lukewarm.
Main courses were ordered, along with wine. We were brought a white wine which was not what we ordered (red). The waitress came back with the correct wine then proceeded to spill the wine down the back of my wife’s dress. Ok - an accident, they do happen - what was really crappy was that the manager/owner said sorry, we’ll pay the dry cleaning and basically that was it - wife spent the rest of the dinner in a wet dress (which was literally bought that day) and wet knickers. We did get an apology written in icing when they brought out 4 complimentary cannoli’s and a small tiramisu.
Check was for full cost of the meal and I even left a tip for the poor waitress.
On the way out, the table host wished us a good night and we said it will be good now we have left - at that she rushed out for our email address to send a gift voucher to us which we refused - we won’t be going back.
It all seemed too little too late.
We know accidents happen, we never complain, but when something like this happens at a purportedly upscale restaurant you expect a little more of an apology from the management of the place, they really did not care, not one iota.
