Always love Sugos! The food and service never disappoints. Wish the wine wasn’t so expensive, but it’s a good quality.

They were out of so much food on a Saturday night, no fish at all, at 7pm everything was gone! It was a nice place with great food - dishes were too salty - service was excellent but food suffered and I only eat fish so I had hardy anything - not worth it!

We had a party of six for New Years Eve dinner and upon arrival They had our table ready right on time. The owner, Mr. C was quick to approach, greet everyone before he proceeded to describe with great detail the various specials for the night. Service was excellent from beginning to end. Everyone's drinks were good but there was an unannounced up-charge of $3-8 per cocktail for different liquors in the cocktails which was surprising and disappointing. Everyone in the party enjoyed what they ordered and the the quality the food was terrific. With growing inflation, there was a notable increase in the entree prices since the last visit to Sugo. In addition, the serving sizes were small as no one in the party had any leftovers and even pasta experience graced us with leftovers..

Bacon wrapped dates were tiny and barely any sauce. My market fish Morrison was tiny as well, more like an appetizer. I also had a small bone one one of my bites but ignored it because we were glad to have finally gotten our food. Right before we were leaving I noticed fresh gum from underneath our table had transferred to my right leg then strung across to my left leg as I had been crossing and Uncrossing my legs during the duration of our meal having no idea there was gum all over my legs. It was all over both of my boots / dress. We had already paid so never saw our waitress again to tell her. I had to throw my boots away and was very embarrassed walking though the restaurant with gum all over my clothes. Sugo used to be one of my favorite places. Won’t be coming back.

We always try to visit Sugo when we're in Atlanta. It's consistently good and enjoyable. This visit was no exception with good food and service. I tried a new menu item: Beef brisket ravioli. It was okay, but presented in a bowl of gravy was off-putting; plus it had no accompanying sides. I won't order that again.

Been here several times and it’s always awesome. The food is impeccable and smaller portions which is nice so you can have their amazing appetizers like flatbread and meatballs. Hanger steak for a the most heavenly dish. Love it. Can’t go wrong with this place!

Started with a bottle of Renzo Chianti, meatball antipasti was terrific, arugula salad and kale salads were really good! Amatriciana chicken was delicious while the stuffed pork loin tasted great but was a bit dry. A coffee and limoncello topped off a really good meal and experience. The owners are readily available and stopped by twice to chat. Loved it! Joined the email list and looking forward to some of their cooking classes this spring.

I made reservations but it took them about 20 minutes to get us a table .
Staff extremely friendly, waitress likely stretched between more than normal tables.
For Appetizers: the octopus which was ok, the Greek flat bread tasted great
Main course: salmon was buttery and of great taste.
The place is welcoming , the prices are the food taste are great . I would definitely recommend this place .

Christmas Eve Dinner: We we’re not aware of limited. Entrees were hit and miss.
Rated service on a covid curve. Not very good, but about normal these days.

I’ll be back, based on much better experiences in past.
