Great food and ambiance. Great place for romantic dinner or for a family dinner celebration. I came with my 2 boys ages 6 and 9 and had a great time! Great customer service and you truly feel valued as a customer.

We've been Sugo customers since it opened in the first location. Sugo must be doing things well as we keep returning.

Sugo was amazing. We LOVE Sugo and are always greeted by either Mr or Mrs. C. They are lovely people and they make all the difference because they genuinely care-it shows because Sugo is a shining star!

We started with a pear salad. Sugo's salads are fabulous and fresh. My husband had the hanger steak and I had the seafood special. We loved both entrees. We sat outside, since dining indoors scares me to death. Mrs. C said they are getting outdoor heaters which means we can go there before it gets terribly cold. Also the take-out menu looks great. This is a business I really want to support because Mr and Mrs. C are lovely people!

Inventive, delicious dishes and warm, friendly and attentive service. The pork tenderloin and Aunt Lena’s chicken in particular are great. Highly recommended!

Sugo dining is like visiting an Italian friend (Neapolitan rather than Roman or Milanese ;-)
High quality, pleasant atmosphere, friendly people, consistent ambiance and feel-good experience. Just ask for Mr. C to share a story or two.

First time at Sugo and we were impressed. Very good flavor and texture to the salad and entrees. We ate outside - no inside for us. Decent but not great outdoor eating area, although the number of outdoor tables was quite sufficient.

Everything was average which was shocking. I picked this restaurant to celebrate my birthday because the last time I was here the food, ambiance, and service were great. Maybe the blame is Covid; I'm not sure. We had to ask for bread several time after our server had offered it to us. He told us that someone kept giving our bread to another table who had already received some bread. However, the couple seated immediately after us received their bread the second they sat down. The stuffed chicken tasted like a chicken breast filet with cheddar cheese melted on top and serve with mac and cheese. The appetizers were great. Our server seemed to pay more attention to his other tables, perhaps because they were drinkers? However, each one of us ordered an appetizer, a salad, and an entrée. The birthday cannoli was a nice touch. I would return for the appetizers and the cannoli. Skip the salads and the entrees, unless you can order a pasta dish. Be prepare to flag down the server, otherwise you will be ignored. I'd recommend this to a friend but with some warnings.

Love this place! Wanted to sit outside, but the dumpster is close by and very smelly. Also, cars are lined up for take-out right by tables outside. So we went inside and had a nice social distanced table. All of our food was delicious and they brought wonderful desserts for our birthday girl. Service was very slow because of all their takeout orders. I am glad they’re doing good business though and I am a loyal Sugo patron!!!

Sugo is one of our favorites in the area and we have missed eating there for the last several months. Every visit has been great for service and food whether we had a large or small group. However, this time was a little off the mark. We were originally seated in the bar where a large party was being hosted in the adjoining room which seemed odd since the dining room was empty. We were quickly moved when I asked. The table service was very good as usual. However, the food on this night was a step below normal and we had menu favorites all around. The dates were a bit mushy, the hanger steak texture was off and the Lena's chicken became a little cloying as it cooled. Almost seems like the "A" team may have been moved to one of the newer restaurants?

We will be back hoping Sugo just had an off-night.

Unfortunately there seemed to be an issue with the air conditioning so it was uncomfortably warm. Three of us ordered shrimp scampi and although the dish was ok, it was nothing like what is considered scampi. It had fettucini with what I think was a mushroom cream sauce. It was just okay.

From the time I entered the restaurant to the time we left our welcome and service were excellent. I made a reservation earlier in the day and when I arrived we were seated. Received water immediately and soon after our waiter Brian took care of any requests we had. He even asked if we were celebrating something and we were. 15 years ago my oldest daughter passed away from Leukemia and this year I decided that I would celebrate her life. I am SO thankful I picked Sugo, we had an amazing time and all of our meals were amazing. Thank you for such an exceptional experience. Brian is an awesome waiter and he truly took excellent care of us.

Liked the atmosphere of eating our dinner at the bar. It was perfect for a date. The wait staff had great recommendations. We enjoyed the $9/glass red wine (4.1 vivino rating), bacon wrapped dates (small portion but delicious), flatbread (the one that starts with an "M"), and hangar steak (better than you think). It was a great meal and a great date.

Birthday. The food was great. Mr and Mrs. C were their usual great hosts. The food was great. A bit unusual our server was not a conversationalist nor did he seemed proud about the food he was serving. This would never stop us from coming here, but it was not the usual spirit of their staff.

ALWAYS a pleasure to eat at Sugos!! My husband and I are hooked on the Maialino flatbread...the thinnest, most delicious crust with heavenly toppings. We decided to have a dinner of appetizers: the flatbread, the huge Sugo meatball and then the Arancini. Followed all that up with a Caprese Salad with the most flavorful tomatoes I’ve had in a long time. Wine and cocktails rounded out the meal. The food is fab but the staff is as much of a draw as the food. Thanks Lada! Great seeing you Mr. & Mrs. C, Alan, Alec and Reggie! Until next time!, keep doing what you’re doing!!
