Food was fantastic. Only complaint was bartender continually chewed on her nails as she leaned up the wall. I could see this from my table. She did not wash her hands after chewing on each finger nail.

This cozy restaurant is one of my favorites. The staff is very hospitable and the food is always amazing. Last night I had Apple Spicer cocktail which is a perfect drink for fall season. Sweet potato gnocchi with sage cream sauce and Brussel sprouts that was on special was outstanding. Absolutely the best meal I've had in awhile. Highly recommend!

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner recently at Sugo.
The female bartender fixed a great Aviation cocktail!! She was very knowledgeable and fun to talk to.
My main entree of Branzino was excellent......as was the ending, perfect bread pudding.
The lighting in the restaurant made for a welcoming and continued warm feeling throughout the entire meal.
We will definitely return to this great restaurant. We were also welcomed warmly.

The hospitality is as outstanding as the food. We started with the Greek flatbread: delish! I don’t usually order poultry when dining out, but Aunt Lena’s Chicken was superb. My son really enjoyed his eggplant parmesan, which was topped with zucchini and mushrooms.

I’m not sure what to make of my experience. The place was very busy, so even with a reservation our seating was delayed 45 mins.

So I thought to myself, wow, the food must be amazing if they are this busy, plus the online reviews are great. But the food was not amazing. It’s not Italian or Greek food at this restaurants. It’s the 2 combined and I found that to be weird, and most of all it did not taste that good. There was a lot of putting dates in the sauces and in the meat. I had meat balls with a whole date inside, and for some that might sound exotic, but it wasn’t for me.

The manager/owner was great. Very attentive and accommodating about the wait and the food I didn’t love. But we both agreed that the experience was just not for me.

Well I just wrote an AWESOME review and I don't see it
So here goes again
No clue where it went😪😪

Well Food is Great as always
Hostesses greeting us are so welcoming
Great servers
Great staff
Great ambience

Every employee we saw were working hard and smiling and willing to work.
I have no clue how they don't have a shortage of workers as every other restaurant we go to do.

Parts of restaurants are closed due to no workers,
There are always a wait at other restaurants meanwhile lots of tables available due to a shortage of workers.


You would NEVER know that by going to our favorite restaurant.
Nothing even changed here.
Still workers, the whole restaurant is opened, food is still great!!
Great job Fred and Nancy!!!!!!
You're a one of a kind
Everywhere else we go to its not the same.

You guys have not changed.
Everything the same
Awesome as always.
Long time customers and you would NEVER know we were in a pandemic and there are shortage of workers.
Whatever you're doing keep up.
The only thing we missed were seeing the both of you last night!!!!

The menu was limited but what was on the menu was excellent. The service was attentive, friendly, and accurate. It has a more intimate atmosphere except for the acoustics; it was louder than expected but not so loud as to be off putting. So it was entirely a good choice for a romantic dinner. The only down side is if you order a soft drink, like a diet coke, they apparently don't have a fountain, so you get it by the 10 oz bottle....and they charge for every bottle. I don't mind a big dinner bill if everything is worth it, and it was here, but this is sort of an outstanding, but minor annoyance. All that said, I would go back.

I've never had a bad time at Sugo. Staff is always engaging and helpful, food is always top shelf, and they have my favorite whiskeys. I'm not sure how it could get much better, especially for a suburban location 40 minutes from downtown Atlanta. Hats off to Mr. C for making every visit special!
