I have been visiting this restaurant since it opened. The food is very creative and combines fruits and vegetables as accompaniments to appetizers and entrées. The beef tenderloin entrée and aunt Nina‘s chicken are my favorites but sometimes I enjoy a tapas meal of appetizers. The servers are mature and experienced and are able to answer any questions about the meal and drinks.

My whole family and I were treated very special! They opened the restaurant for us an hour before the regular opening time, as we were worried about the weather. We were the only diners in the restaurant and we were treated very special! As always, we all enjoyed our meals. Some of the food ordered was: Mushroom & Truffle Ravioli, Bacon Wrapped Dates, Eggplant Parmesan, Federico’s Braciole, Aunt Lena’s Chicken, Shrimp Scampi and a Special of Bass like fish(forgot name). Service was exceptional, as well as the food. We passed on desert, as we were going back to the house to further celebrate our 2 December family birthdays. Sugo is a great place for a celebration! Great ambiance!

It was a wonderful experience; however, We enjoy California wines - the only California Red by the glass was 20.00 per. I can’t recall the last time I spent this much for a glass. This is the ONLY reason I reduced the ‘value’ rating.
Other than this it was outstanding - this of course includes the MEATBALL!

Sugo never disappoints! Food and service are phenomenal always. If you’re looking for a “Scratch Kitchen” look no further. The ambiance is nice, they rotate menu options, and the service is great. Worth every penny spent.

Although I haven't had the opportunity to try many Italian restaurants since I've moved to Atlanta, this is easily the best I've been.

From the moment you sit down until the last plate is removed the staff is very attentive and ensures that everything is taken care of.

I think the overarching theme that I saw was pride. Pride in their history, their food, and their service.

This is a place that I would definitely recommend that you check out if you have the opportunity.

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. I made reservations for 8:00pm. We waited for 52 minutes before we were seated. We watched multiple parties come in after us and get seated first. We were told twice we were next just to watch others get seated still before us. The male hostess was very nice and offered us drinks as we waited. We were given a small appetizer for our wait but that was all. Not even a free desert for the birthday after a hour wait. We were given a card to fill out to get emails etc and have a free birthday desert which did not include the day we were already there. The food over all was AMAZING! Hopefully in the future they can figure out how to accommodate those who make reservations in hopes to get sat in close proximity to the time of said reservation.

My friend and I fully enjoyed ourselves the other night at Sugo's. I actually haven't been here since a few years ago, but I am so glad I came back. Our waiter, unfortunately we didn't catch his name, was the sweetest and most attentive waiter, and he was so pleasant, and thus made our dinner experience just as pleasant.

We shared the arancini for our appetizer. Although it was flavorful, (the sauce is amazing!) and delightfully crispy on the outside, I wish it was a touch warmer. It almost felt like it had been sitting out for a few minutes before it was brought out to our table.
My friend had the shrimp scampi, and I had the zucchini pasta. - both were so tasty! I prefer my foods to not be heavily salted, and the seasoning was perfect on my zucchini dish. The shrimp scampi, with a sprinkle of parmesan, was great. Our waiter suggested I get the zucchini with a little bit of pepper for a spicy kick, and I'm so glad I listened to him.

Overall, great ambiance, great staff, and good food. I will be back and hopefully, I'll have another good experience.

Excellent all around! Creative and delicious food; felt like I was eating Iron Chef food! Our waitress, Amy, described the food in a way that we have never experienced: she made each of us really want to order whatever dish she described!! Noise level was fine. Too many restaurants now days are incredibly loud; NOT this one. There were four of us and we had no trouble hearing each other. Definitely go here!! It's an excellent find!

We made a reservation on OpenTable. In the comments box I mentioned we were coming to celebrate our daughter’s 18th birthday and also that I would be looking for a vegan option. When we arrived, there was a birthday card from the staff on the table already. Luckily it was early on a Monday night so the chef made time to come to our table just to discuss my vegan options. He made me a custom dish that was phenomenal! The four of us each got a different entree and each one was delicious. We had visits from the owner, the manager, the chef....all checking in to make sure we were enjoying everything and to wish our daughter a Happy Bday. My daughter was given a special bday cannoli plate to share for dessert and they even brought me a dish of sorbet (vegan). It was by far the best overall experience for a celebration. If I had to change one thing in Sugo, it would be the lighting. It is impossible to read the menu or take in the visual beauty of the food/plating without an iPhone flashlight even with 20/20 vision!
