Wonderful evening and delicious dinner and appetizers. We had the market fish, which was amazing and so fresh. My friend had the vegetarian pasta dish, which also was delicious. The bread and buratta...excellent!

Service was great, wine was very good as was the appetizer. The chicken parmigiana was not very good. The chicken tasted like frozen chicken. It had a very strange texture to it.

We’ve come here for over 10 years. Had multiple business and family events. Always great food and service. Don’t know that we’ve ever been there when at least one of the owners was present and circulating. One of our favorites.

I really wish I had discovered Sugo earlier. The owner (forgot his name) and his wife Nancy found out it was our first time there and really made us feel so welcome. The food was outstanding! My wife and I will be back!

We had the most wonderful time on our valentine's day date. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable and he made us feel like we were the only customers. Then to have the actual owner come around and speak to us. You rarely have that kind of interaction. They definitely made an impression on us and we have already said we will be back. Highly Highly recommend

We were there for Valentine's Day, so we were in a back room which was not preferred, but acceptable. The service was incredibly efficient and the food was pretty great. My only complaint was that the bottle of wine we ordered didn't seem chilled and the wine chiller, while having a little bit of ice, didn't do much to help.

Well it was valentines night so I imagine this had something to do with the unusually poor service. Cocktails were 20 minutes to arrive. One guest received as appetizer and the other 3 guests waited a good 5 minutes before theirs showed up. We had two lobster specials which were not good. Very average and one was a bit cold. I had a regular menu item which was ok. Food not expensive which would have warranted less stars. Disappointing as service and food generally better

Our occasion was Valentine’s dinner with my fiancé. This was our first visit here. A lively crowd filled the main room. The ambiance was perfect. We were seated in a smaller overflow room near the rear of the restaurant which was a bit quieter and proved to be perfect for a romantic dinner. The food was excellent. Our server, Noah, was pleasant, attentive, and informative.
We will definitely return to Sugo!

Sugo's had the best Prix fixes this past weekend. Lobster tail over a wonderfully creamy seafood risotto and we went back the next day to get the Red Snapper and Fillet. Exquisite! THE best place to let your worries go and accept the greatness of the Castalucci family to make your evening feeling pampered.

Ther service was impeccable. The owner walks around greeting each guest which makes you feel at home. Food is great..I had Aunt Lena’s Chicken which was very good. Only criticism food took a while before arriving. Not sure if it’s due to COVID but it’s something they can approve upon. SUGO truly made my Valentines dinner special.

Our dear friends from WI were having a surprise engagement and we could not think of a more special and romantic place than Sugo's.
Our server Alec was incredible and so on top of things. The place was packed and that did not interfere with the service. The ladies at the front were very customer friendly and accommodated us so well.
The food was absolutely incredible as always along with the wine and drinks.
Could not have been more pleased with the whole experience and making it a memorable event for our friends!!
