It was an awesome experiencer as usual. Sugo is my families favorite place. You always make us feel like family. I would, also, like to commend our server. It is the tall black lady. She was just wonderful and made sure that we were all happy. I look forward to our next visit. Thank you.

One of our favorite restaurants. The food is great. Don't miss their terrific meatball app. The hanger steak is my go to. I love to cook but I can't figure out how to get the steak so tender and that smoke flavor..yum. The owners are always there making sure you are treated with hospitality. Five stars!

Sugo is a fantastic restaurant that I would most definitely recommend to a friend. The food is outstanding and the staff is very friendly, inquisitive, and on top of their game. I have eaten here many times and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in a new restaurant to add to their list.

We celebrated my wife's and son-in-law's birthdays and my son's and daughter-in-law's anniversary.

Fredrico and Omid provided outstanding service. My wife said the hanger steak was like butter. My daughter feasted on the cannelloni and the boys had the fish snapper over seafood risotto and the pork braciola. Ohhh sooo good!

Sugo continues to meet and exceed our expectations in all areas. Their food is wonderful and fairly priced, the ambiance is delightful and the service is absolutely top tier, being both sophisticated but very friendly and inviting. Sugo is and has been for several years our favorite Atlanta dining destination, and we have and continue to try all the top Atlanta restaurants - as well as those around the world.

Took a friend for a girls night out. As usual the food was delicious. Meatball appetizer, hanger steak and bread pudding. The meatball alone was a meal. Got some to take home for the family too as we all love Sugo!

We received email notification from them of a special promotion that they were running. Service and hospitality are always exceptional. Food is consistently good. In addition, we received a secret discount card for our next visit.

This place doesn’t disappoint. I remember when the Castelucci’s opened the Roasted Garlic 19 years ago and all their restaurants have been wonderful experiences. This is my favorite of them all. The meatball is amazing. No filler -all meat!!! Almost a meal itself. Aunt Lenas chicken is a staple and the best!!!

It was our first time. We definitely enjoyed our meal it was superb. We definitely will go again. Our server was very nice, enthusiastic and helpful. Several came by to inquire if all was fine. We had a 6:45 reservation, seated immediately and it was very busy. Appears there were 2 large groups therefore the noise level was a little high. Otherwise I would recommend to others and will bring visitors. thanks!

Food was excellent. Staff was attentive but not very knowledgeable about their wine list. Over all good experience and would go there again.

I frequent Sugo about 6 times a year. Always a good meal, always excellent service and always a visit from the owner. The lasagna is to die for and is only served a handful of times every year. Get on their email list so you can be notified of when they are serving lasagna.

One of the best anniversary dinners ever - pleasant atmosphere, friendly but professional staff, outstanding food. Due to celiac diagnosis 25 years ago, gluten free items are essential - reasonably large selection of GF choices. appetizers, salads, entrees, deserts. Our waiter, Fraiser, made the dinner that much more enjoyable - experienced based suggestions, willing to put up with our chatty repartee and contribute. Highly recommend the grilled octopus appetizer, pork chop & veal entrees. Will definitely be returning ... soon.

Unfortunately the waiter did not pay adequate attention to our telling the fact that two guests had nit allergies, and two entrees had nit based preparations. The chef came out after the fact and alerted us but the harm was done. My children left in a hurry and had to take appropriate medication to avoid a serious reaction. My son had tinging and onset oft a reaction but was able to stave it off. But his birthday moment was ruined. The management and staff was apologetic a lot, I accepted the mistake but my 20 plus year children were quite upset as they reminded the wait staff several times before the meal was ordered

Outstanding experience! We had an excellent waitress, Jaqui, who made great suggestions for appetizers and entrees. Everyone shared and enjoyed all choices. Sitting outside on a beautiful November evening made the experience even better.

Mr. and Mrs. Castelucci make the experience special each and every time we visit. I tried the shrimp scampi for the first time and was delighted. Sugo remains our favorite restaurant in the Atlanta area.

My husband and I were celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary. We love Sugo as much today as we did many years ago when they first opened in the area and before that time when they opened with Roasted Garlic. Always spot on, wonderful and unique cuisine and cocktails/wine selection, and the staff and service is fantastic. Mr. and Mrs. C are genuine with their warm and friendly approach.

We have been here often but this time it was our anniversary. We are on there email list so we get a very nice coupon to enjoy our special night.
We had the same server we had a couple months ago. He is very friendly, funny informative and recognized us.
This is not why I consider an everyday restaurant. It is on the pricey side but the food is always fabulous. Family slow cooked recipes. So consistently delicious which is the primary reason to return.
The owners are always there and always make sure everyone is enjoying the food, service etc.
they do seasonal menus and always try to follow what is in season.
The food is primarily a northern Italian flare but again the recipes are family specific.
I would highly recommend it to anyone in the area.

Lovely restaurant which was very busy the night we went. There were two rehearsal dinner parties and the restaurant was full. The staff was still very attentive and food was delicious and very fresh. I look forward to returning and trying some of the other dishes.

Great food and we were in a small room that was less noisy than main dining area, which was fine for us. A special treat was having founding family members drop by and discuss their other restaurants. We are definitely coming back.

The quality of food here is AMAZING! I was part of a large group for a girls night, and we enjoyed every minute! As a group, we pretty much sampled the entire menu, every dish was flavorful and cooked perfectly.
This would also be a perfect spot for a romantic evening.

My husband and I enjoy the ambiance at Sugo. They are a first class fine dining without breaking the bank. It feels sassy and relaxed. Food is incredible. Everyone from the hostess seating us to others were on their game. Our server Christina pampered us all the way with her knowledge of foods and wine. Thank you for being a part of my birthday celebration.

Absolutely fabulous from the service to the food. Focused on you- the diner- the wait staff, hosts and owners treat you like family. Get the meatballs al Sugo. They are huge and easily shared. The flatbread appetizer is unlike anything you have had before! Any entree, but especially the nightly special, will be delicious. Take your friends - take your family - just go and enjoy!!!
