Delicious Italian fare. I usually order Aunt Lena's chicken but I decided to order the braciole and it did not disappoint. My husband had the filet which was tender and delicious. Great wine selection and fabulous service. The owner stopped by our table twice to make sure things were delicious and explain the specials.

We went to Sugo and thoroughly enjoyed it. Ambience was great. The owners were very friendly. The service exceptional.
The scallops were superb and the stuffed pork tenderloin was to die for.
Will definitely return.

We went to Sugo for my fiancé’s birthday and unfortunately we both left the restaurant saying we would not go back. The food was fine, but nothing that we couldn’t make at home, and probably make even more flavorful. They were out of one of the items we ordered and seemed a bit short staffed.

On a positive note, they did present my fiancé with a lovely birthday dessert and comped us one appetizer since they were sold out of the other.

But overall, they get a three star rating simply due to flavor and quality of the food.

This was the first visit for me and my wife. We started with two appetizers: flatbread and the meatball. The flatbread was a perfect combination of tastes: pepperiness of the arugula, the sweetness of the sliced dates, and the saltiness of the cheese. The meatball was tasty and made even more so with the delectable tomato sauce.

Both entrees were delicious: Chicken Parmigiana and Aunt Lena's Chicken - I guess it was a night for chicken.

Our server, Quinton, was attentive and, thankfully, very unobtrusive by letting us set the pace for our dinner.

We ate early (06:00 Friday evening), I would encourage reservations should you eat any later time as this popular restaurant seemed to fill quickly.

Please note, the entrance and parking is around the back of the shopping center.

Overall, I encourage you to visit and enjoy a superb meal with great service and ambiance.

Sugos is the best Italian restaurant in the Atlanta area. Real authentic Italian food. Not to mention the bread which is great.

Had a great date night out with my husband. We started with the Meatball al Sugo appetizer. It was slightly sweet but what really got me was the tomato Sugo it was served with. There was absolutely no acidity to it. Very hard to do and we ate almost all of it with the bread that came to the table. I had the Eggplant Parmesan and loved that it came with a variety of sautéed vegetables instead of a side of pasta. My husband had the Cannelloni and it was equally as delicious. He ate the whole thing. We ended our dinner with Tiramisu and Cannoli. We can't wait to come back.
