Sugo is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is fresh and delicious. The service is impeccable. The owners are on site each evening attending to every detail. They have one of the best stocked bars in town and offer unique hand made cocktails. All this for much less than you would expect to pay for this level of quality. I can’t wait to go back!

Overall food was just ok for me and my wife. Unfortunately, the night we were there they had a murder mystery dinner thing going on which had a party of 50 people (which apparently required each couple ordered separately instead of doing buffet style). We waited an hour just to get our food and then we felt the food was just ok. Service was very good and the owner was attentive due to the long wait. They also did give out free appetizers to all of the regular dining guests because of the long wait. Wine list was a little off and nothing we tried paired well with what we ate. Overall vibe and atmosphere was nice, but probably won’t be back.

Outstanding! Was recommended by a friend and wasn’t disappointed. The food, staff, waitress, everything was great and we’ll be back for sure. The only thing I didn’t like was where we were seated. It’s why I didn’t give it 5 stars and low ambiance rating. We were a couple and seated at a two person table (which is fine). But, we were sandwiched btw two four person tables w one side a long booth seat. It was tight quarters and wasn’t the privacy I expected w/my wife so we could talk freely and enjoy each other’s company. We just felt like it was impossible for everything not to be shared across all three tables, conversation especially. Just too tight spaced and created the impression that they have it to stuff as many folks in as possible. I’d recommend them taking it out and then the two Four tops would be spaced enough for some privacy. We will be back and I’ll just ask for another area now that I know the place better.

While the food was delicious, the prices are quite high for portions. We were there for our anniversary and had a second meal free but only up to $15. There is virtually nothing in that price range. We spent well over $125, sharing salad and one appetizer and dessert.

I feel fortunate to live close to this great restaurant. The owners are usually there to ensure you feel welcome and to make sure that everything is exceptional. I’ve had many of the items on the menu but my favorites are the flatbread appetizer, the meatball appetizer, the braciole and the scallops. The flatbread has pork, arugula and a clear balsamic that work so well together. The scallops are always fresh and delicate and never over cooked. From what I understand the braciole is the owner’s special dish. The sausage filling isn’t overpowering but balances out all of the flavors of the entire dish. I’ve never left disappointed with anything: food, cocktails, service, etc.. Excellent!

Great Italian food with some interesting ingredients (dates and wild mushrooms were included in my pork loin and sausage dish). Portions were just right, not huge like some Italian restaurants. I had a salad and entree and had room for dessert. Great wine list with plenty of options by the glass.
Atmosphere is nice, low light and cozy decor.
When we told them wee we’re celebrating our anniversary, they brought a complementary glass of dessert wine.

Sugo has great food, but I would never go there again. We had reservations for 8pm and didn't get seated until 9:05. Ok, you're busy I get it; but then they sat us at a table and we didn't get drinks for 30 minutes!!!! Our server was nice but obviously she was in charge of way too many tables and couldn't keep up. Seriously, if I'd just had a drink in hand I probably could have dealt with the wait. I thought that once the restaurant slowed down for the night that we'd get more attention but no such luck. This dinner dragged on until after 11pm. Awful. Even though the food was good, I'd rather go to Trattoria 141 right down the street and get better service!

Would have given Sugo 5 stars, but our main couses came 1.5 hours after they were ordered. We have been to Sugo many times, and this is the first time this happened. Perhaps it was just this day.
Always enjoy eating dinner in Sugo.

this is one of THE top restaurants outside the perimeter, people are actually bringing their passports and coming north over the perimeter line now to go to Sugos; the sauces are trult remarkable--a combo of Italian & Greek; creative combinations of food stuffs, fish, meat, puultry, veggies...lively but can carry on a conversation; some outdoor seating on nation is a nice touch; Fred and Nancy Castellucci are the ultimate experienced restaurant hosts and know exactly how everything is cooked to their family historical standards...

We've been going to Sugo's for some years now, it's our spot for our Anniversary. Only thing I noticed was the portions seemed smaller, especially with the appetizers. We had the wrapped dates and the grilled octopus. Flavors were great, but 4 small dates and 2 small pieces of octopus seemed smaller than I remember. Flavors are still excellent. Also noticed that the classic "purses" were no longer on the menu.
