My son got to choose his bday dinner restaurant and Sugo’s it was! He loves this place. The food is amazing. We started with the meatball, risotto puffs, bacon wrapped dates, potatoes and octopus for the table. It was all so delicious. Dinners were the steak special, port chop, scallop piccata, eggplant, ravioli, and cannelloni. Followed by desserts. We left stuffed and happy:

We chose Sugo to celebrate my daughter’s birthday and could not have made a better decision: delicious food plus a the finest and kindest attentions from every person, the owners, the hostess, our waiter... chic and perfect! This is the best dining experience we’ve had in the Alpharetta area. Thank you Sugo team!

The management and service staff is truly excellent. We highly recommend Sugo’s for a small intimate dinner, or a large group party. The food is also exceptional.

Food was delicious and just the right amount! Didn't leave extremely stuffed, but with some room for desserts (which is also amazing) The ambiance was a little too dark for my liking, caused a bit of a strain to read the menu. Overall great place for a treat your self or friends kind of place.

This was our first time to visit Sugo and we loved it! Everyone was very friendly and made us feel right at home. The food was wonderful. It was authentic, felt healthier and was a step above the usual menus at the chain restaurants. Even "Mom and Pop" (the owners) gave us a personal welcome and checked to see if everything was okay or if there was anything we needed. The only suggestion we would have would be to have the waitress/waiter offer bread when they took our order instead of us having to ask if they had any bread. And, then bring four slices in a basket instead of two (they were very small and delicious) so you don't have to feel guilty asking for more. We are so excited to know this is a great place to go close by and definitely hope to be able to visit again soon.

Our first time at Sugo did not disappoint. We were celebrating our 10 yr Anniversary and could not have picked a nicer place to eat and enjoy our evening. We were greeted at the door and welcomed by the owner. When we got to our table there was a card signed by many employees wishing us a Happy Anniversary. He also came to our table a few minutes later to explain the menu, the history, and some of his favorite dishes. We shared the meatball appetizer (super yum). My wife had the scallops and I had the eggplant parm. Both meals were full of flavor and I couldn’t believe the large portion size I received so I got to enjoy it again for lunch the next day. Our waitress Lada was very attentive and kind.

The lighting was dim and while there was music playing it was not overwhelming so you can easily share in conversation without shouting.

They brought us a nice treat of two tasty cannolis on a plate wishing us a Happy Anniversary.

Our only regret is that we didn’t eat there sooner! Thanks Sugo!

Anniversary celebration, and the table was set replete with a Happy Anniversary Congratulatory card signed by all the staff! What a nice touch! Food as always was spectacular, from the shared meatball and flatbread appetizers to the entrees... snapper special and cannelloni. All accompanied by frequent yet unobtrusive attention from our server and the owners, checking in with congratulations and insuring we enjoyed our celebration... with their family. Overall, a very special, enjoyable evening!

This place is not pretentious, but elegant and accommodating, while having a warm friendly vibe.
The dining room is reminiscent of Tuscany, and the food is carefully crafted and presented by a nice wait staff.
The spanikopita appetizer is deliciously light and flaky, and the zucchini pasta paired well with a lovely glass...okay two, of Barone Montalto IGT Cabernet, a nice "by the glass" wine, to which they added a bread basket for the perfect finishing touch. :)
This is one restaurant that I have found to be consistently good, and truly delivers an enjoyable evening out!

Sugo is still our favorite restaurant for great food, great service and ambiance. The owner welcomes you so sincerely, not perfunctory, and asks often how things are.

On this visit, the occasion was my 78 birthday. I actually studied the menu on line before our visit and I knew what I wanted.
Instead I ordered one of the specials of the night. It was a halibut and not my liking. I have had a practice over years to ignore specials; if they are great, eventually they make the menu.
Again, it wasn’t the dish per se, but my choice.

We had the unbelievable meatball for an appetizer and split Caprese, both excellent and we had them previously.
My spouse loved her dish, forgot what she ordered.

The management presented me with a birthday dessert and complimentary sparkling wine.

We had a multiple birthday celebration and it was delightful! Our server, Alec, was one of the best servers ever! We all agreed that he was above and beyond wonderful. He catered to our every need -- and as group of 6 "needy" women - he was a rock star! The food was great, as usual. Great serving sizes and tasty!

We love Sugo’s! The food is ALWAYS excellent! We were celebrating a birthday & everyone loved their food! Our waitress was wonderful! We have had her before & she is so cheerful & attentive! Our only complaint was that 1/2 way through our meal, a party of 13 came into our little room & the noise level increased significantly. The back room has no curtains or fabric to absorb noise. (A common problem in too many restaurants!). Anyway, we still had a great time and we will certainly be back!

Food was great. However we had a reservation for 7:30 and did not get sat until 8. Several parties were waiting on their reservation actually. Why bother making one of you won't hold a table?
