Wow, what a disaster!

First off, it takes over 10 minutes to get a drink. Then the waitress has to go into this dissertation on the history of the restaurant and where the freaking olives came from... like we care.

They spend more time presending the menu and telling you about the history of the restaurant than they do providing you with good service. We waited about 10 minutes before the waiter came to take our drink order. It took him 11 minutes

Ok, here is the experience.

As we drove into the parking lot, we noticed that there was valet parking was a non negotiable. In the city this may be a necessity, but Sugos has its own parking lot. Kind of odd I guess. We handed the keys off the the valet and watch them park my car in a parking space 20 feet away.
As we walked in we were greeted by friendly staff who seated us immediately.

As we sat down our server arrived and proceeded to take the next 6-8 minutes explaining the history of the restaurant, the uniqueness of it and the specials for the evening. I would have preferred a simple greeting and a quick rundown of the specials so we could order our drinks.
Shortly after our drinks arrived a manager arrived as well and asked us if this was our first time here. When we replied "yes" she immediately plopped a pen and info card on our table for us to put our contact info on in order to receive advertisements from them via email.

First course...Tapas. We ordered the Asparagus, Dates and Bacon, and the calamari. The dates and bacon was very flavorful, if a little short on serving size, fried asparagus was somewhat plain, but the calamari was extremely strong and fishy tasting, as if it was a couple days older then it should have been. Serving size was also small with the calamari, although we never finished it.

Main course was the Pork tenderloin. Big on presentation, short on flavor. Fried artichokes on the side were decent, sauteed onions underneath were cooled, as if they were sitting there a bit waiting for the meat to finish, and the pork tenderloin moderately sized, loaf shaped piece of meat with two hunks of mozzarella jammed into two incisions on either end. The meat's flavor was very bland and uncomplex, and the balsamic based sauce was useful for presentation only.

Third course Desert: The best part of the meal was the Baklava cheescake. Good sized piece and very tasty. If you do wind up at Sugo's order this.

As we finished and paid a considerable bill for largely uninspiring food, we headed out to the parking lot to the valet stand, watched them hustle off to our car 20 feet away and retrieve it for us for a tip.

Bottom line, I've been all over the world and ate at many quality eating establishments. Sugo's fall into the trap that so many do when attempting to play with the big boys in terms of fine dining. Their overwhelming effort is presentation, unfortunately actual taste and satisfaction take a back seat.

In spite of living in Roswell for more than 3 years, we did not know about this wonderful place until one day we accidently found out about it. Starting from Starter to Dessert all the dishes were very very delicious...The customer service was excellent just like the food. A MUST try Restaurent!!!

My husband and I ate at Sugo (Clocktower location) for the first time on a recent Saturday evening and were completely blown away by this gem of a restaurant.

We ordered several tapas items as our meal. Our favorite was the butternut squash tortelloni, a seasonal special. It was tender and flavorful. In fact, it was so good, my eyes actually rolled back in my head when I ate it.

Also excellent were the fried asparagus and the pumpkin cheesecake, and my husband said his cup of decaf coffee was so good, he wouldn't have guessed it was decaf.

The only miss we had food-wise was an heirloom tomato special. It was good but not remarkable and for us, not worth the $14.95 we paid for it (although, knowing the price of heirloom tomatoes, I wouldn't suggest they were overcharging, it just wasn't worth it to us).

This restaurant really seems to care about using quality ingredients and preparing them well.

Service was good, although not outstanding. Our waitress was reasonably attentive, but we certainly never felt rushed. There was one time I would have liked her to come to our table sooner, but she was at the next table running through the LONG list of specials.

Our meal, including one dessert and one coffee (but no alcoholic drinks) came to under $50. The last nice restaurant we went to was the much-hyped Craft, where we paid about three times as much for less enjoyable food -- and less of it -- and didn't enjoy it nearly as much.

The atmosphere is nice but not too formal. They have a kid's menu as well, but the place is relatively cozy, so I would only come if your kids know how to behave in a restaurant -- a couple of rowdy children would likely disturb the whole dining room.

This restaurant has immediately become one of our new favorites.

We went here to celebrate my friends birthday. The food was extremely high priced for the portion size and we were not impressed at all. Its a decent atmosphere but not worth the bad food at ridiculous prices. We won't go back.

I take out of town visiter and my ITP friends here all the time. I am not normally a tapas fan, but this place has the best I have ever had. The meatballs are an absolute must!!!! If you arent into tapas, then the rest of the Italian food is also amazing. I took an italian friend here for the first time and he is now constantly going back.

Equally as amazing as the food quality is the very reasonable prices. No matter what we order or how much i get to drink, i am never shocked at the bill and always think what a great deal it is.

The historic roswell location is better than the one off holcomb bridge.

Sugo has the best Italian/Mediterranean cuisine i have ever tasted. All dishes are made to perfection in a flavor incomparable to others. The Absolute brilliant chef Fred Castellucci has created flavors that will amaze your buds.
Try any Special available because they are truly special.

Fred and Nancy Castelucci take Italian to the highest of highs. From the moment you enter their restaurant you know you are someplace special. The food, the service, the atmosphere, the entertainment ( we are talking about Fred, here!!) all combine to make for an evening that is magical. Love this Restaurant!!

We attended a Sunday night wine dinner that was very well done. The winemaker was in attendance from Italy, spoke great english, and came around to talk to each table. There was also live music, and a charity benefactor. The food was well prepared and for the most part complemented the wine. Although the baklava, delicious on it's own, seemed way too sweet to go with the dessert wine it was paired with. Since not serving a food that is sweeter than the wine seems like basic wine pairing knowledge, I asked the winemaker what his thoughts were. He replied that it would never be paired with something that sweet in Italy. Nonetheless, the $60.00 per person charge was reasonable and our service was good. BEWARE though: the bill is presented before your meal and includes tax and tip. The fact that the tip is included is not stated on the receipt, or the website as far as I could tell. When I called to get an adjustment to our credit card, I was told that "tax and tip are always included". Personally, I don't mind this practice as long as it's made clear to me. All in all, I would definitely recommend attending a wine dinner at Sugo.

The apetizer, i.e. steemed mussels, was good but the the main dishes were
too brutal. The food at this place is comparable to a big italian food chain and
there is nothing formidable to it. For excellent and light italian food, go to LaGrotta,
which, in my opinion, is the best italian restaurant in Atlanta. Service was also
mediocre. The waiter tried hard but he simply was not sufficiently trained. He has
committed too many errors and in the end, despite my request for a very strong
expresso, he brought me instead a strong watered coffee which I was not able to
drink. A italian restaurant that does not know how to make a good expresso should
not be classified as italian!

So, I am not going back again.

We LOVE Sugo! It's a great alternative to the typical fine dining restaurants- smaller and more intimate. The food is incredible! They definitely have authentic nailed. My husband and I eat out about 6 out of 7 nights a week so we have a ton of restaurant experience under our belts- Sugo is a must go!

The key to enjoying this restaurant is managing your expectations. The feel is neighborhood family restaurant, not intown fine dining - so your expectations of service, presentation, and offerings should reflect such. Exactly what this restaurant is going for seems a little confusing as the entree prices aren't your typical family restaurant prices. They could easily cut back on the portion size on some of their dishes to make the entree prices more in line with the ambience and service of the restaurant. While the menu is limited (especially when it comes to pasta options), many of the entrees are focused on flavor combinations with a multitude of components (e.g. Federico?s Pork Braciole). Some of the more simple entrees comprised mostly of a protein and caramalized onions are good, but nothing special. The unique experience, overall good food, and Roswell location will encourage a return visit.

The meal that my husband and I were served last night was Fabulous, Flavorful, and Outstanding. Megan (our wait staff) was well educated on the menu and a delight. We decided to order the specials of the evening. The chicken wrapped in filo dough tapas was unbelievable. The sea bass was served with noodles in a wonderful light and flavorful cream sauce. Wow! The prime steak could not have been prepared more perfectly. Served with stuff red peppers, carmelized onions in portwine reduction. Amazing flavor! We will definately be back and will spread the word. Kudo's to the family for creating such wonderful and unique meals. Loved our experience:)

My wife and I had dinner at Sugo's in Roswell. Neither of us thought our food was very good. One of the owners came by to ask about the food. I wanted to be honest and said it was just ok, and all she said was sorry and that was it. We would not go back. It was not a very pleasant experience.

I love this place. I think that the manager is the father of the owner of several sugos - I see him nearly every time I visit. He takes the time to visit each table to get feedback on the food, and if you desire, he'll tell you why it's so good. Very interesting guy.

We enjoy taking our parents here when they visit, as well as our kids. The ambience is very nice, but not stuffy. Excellent service - and the food is not like any other italian restaurant I've ever had. Prices are not overly expensive, but not inexpensive either. I think it's a good value for the cost.

If you?ve ever had the pleasure to stay in a quaint Bed & Breakfast in the hill towns of Tuscany and been served amazing culinary preparations unlike anything touted as ?Italian? so typical of the Italian restaurants of America? then you?ll fully appreciate your dining experience at Sugo. This is not ?typical? Italian, but more accurately, authentic Italian.

Some claim Sugo to be Mediterranean.. Authentic Italian cuisine is Mediterranean. I call Sugo ?Italian?? but yeah, it?s a mix of a little Italian, a little Greek, and a whole lot of ?unique?. I don?t do big nationwide mass production, processed food restaurants. At Sugo, its fresh prepared daily, just like in the old country, just like at home.

I read one of the other reviews here. It was less than appreciative, rated the restaurant very poorly. That reviewer couldn?t be more wrong; said something about being loud, fake, well rehearsed, bland food. Clearly that poster was looking for another ?typical? restaurant. In fact, the bread is fresh baked all night long, so if it takes a bit time? its worth the wait.

The ?C?s? are native?s of Rhode Island, so expect a big New York ?Hi! How are ya! Look who?s here!? of a welcome.

Mr. C is a master architect when it comes to ingredients and preparation. With each bite your mouth with go through a culinary "mouth explosion" as you try to decipher ?wow, what?s in this??. Take your time, go slow, and savor every bite. You?ll be tempted to scarf. Don?t! Make it a slow indulgence.

I?ve made an entire meal by ordering a smorgasbord of tapas. Try putting Eggplant Montassio, Hunters Sausage, Euro Mushrooms, the Geek Salad (amazingly different!), and Pan Aglio y Olio together.

I've had everything on the menu, but I'm partial to the specials!

My favorites menu & specials:
Pork Paladar, the Braciole, and High Tide, Lamola, Saltimboka, Tallagio, Involtini.

Say hello to Robert, Heather, Krystal, Zata, Sara, Nancy (Mrs. ?C?), and of course Mr. ?C?.

In fact, the bread is fresh baked all night long, so if it takes a bit time? its worth the wait.

The ?C?s? are native?s of Rhode Island, so expect a big New York ?Hi! How are ya! Look who?s here!? of a welcome.

Mr. C is a master architect when it comes to ingredients and preparation. With each bite your mouth with go through a culinary "mouth explosion" as you try to decipher ?wow, what?s in this??. Take your time, go slow, and savor every bite. You?ll be tempted to scarf. Don?t! Make it a slow indulgence.

I?ve made an entire meal by ordering a smorgasbord of tapas. Try putting Eggplant Montassio, Hunters Sausage, Euro Mushrooms, the Geek Salad (amazingly different!), and Pan Aglio y Olio together.

I've had everything on the menu, but I'm partial to the specials!

My favorites menu & specials:
Pork Paladar, the Braciole, and High Tide, Lamola, Saltimboka, Tallagio, Involtini.

Say hello to Robert, Heather, Krystal, Zata, Sara, Nancy (Mrs. ?C?), and of course Mr. ?C?.

Pros: Quality, consistency, friendly, value, service, unique, flavor.

Cons: Wish there was one in Michigan.

Sugo has become the home away from home for my group of friends whenever we are in town. The atmosphere is cozy and authentic, the music (generally soft italian opera) and lighting are both just right, and the service is always well informed and attentive. The dishes are all masterpeices, truly new ways of cooking here in the states. I have tried most of the tapas and several of the entrees and have yet to be dissapointed. There is an excellent choice on the menu for a good variety of foods. I really enjoy the pizza rollatini, lamb saltimboca, hunters sausage, aunt lena's chicken, the salads, and any special I have ordered has yet to let me down. Wine flows freely and the desserts leave you wanting to order every one on the menu, especially the bomba and the tiramisu. I would highly reccomend Sugo for a private party - the last time I was there I peeked in on a group that had reserved the back patio, probably at least 50 people! There were christmas lights and candles and such a festive and jovial feeling in the air I wished I was a part of it. Sugo will continue to be the meeting spot for my friends and I whenever we are in Atlanta.

Pros: service, FOOD, wine list

Cons: can get busy

Sugo was recommended to me by a friend. Best friend I might add. She told me that it was her new favorite restaurant in atl; this was hard to believe seeing that we have lived here 10 years and eaten almost everywhere. Man was she right, best friends never lie!! I went for my b-day with her and 15 of my girlfriends, when we walked in the hostess greeted us like we were walking into her home, I later found out that it was one of the owners (a husband and wife team). Our server was very knowledgeable and recommended that we try one of his favorite wines, which was very good for the price (14 hands cab). I had a lamb dish that "MR.C" convinced me to have by the way he described it, saying that he hand made it in the morning and cooked for something like 5 hours. I had the "Bomba" for desert, which was sung to me by one of the servers whom is a trained opera singer. The only negative I could find about sugo is that we had to wait a little more than expected, however I found out why people were willing to wait, THE FOOD!

i came into sugo restaurant a few weeks back. the hostess was very fake and loud. she scared me. my wife and i did not make a reservation so we were asked to wait about 10 min. we agreed, walked up to the tiniest bar i had ever seen and had to fight the crowd for a cocktail. when we ordered, the bartender rudley said 'NO, WE DONT SERVE LIQUOR'. and he walked away never to return. we were seated after a thirty five minute wait. when i waitress arived, very promptly, she told us this description of how much goes into the food as far as preperation time, the high quality ingrediants. yada yada ya...now usually we dont really ask/want bread at places, but seeing that we had to wait, my wife was kind of hungry. we did ask for bread about three times before it finally came. the waitress told us they bake it fresh to order.... YEAH RIGHT! after hearing the well rehersed "specials" for the evening from the waitress, i had to order it, it sounded too good to be true. and when the food was brought out. it was too good to be true. horrible presentation. the dish was smaller than the food that was on it. it looked like a bunch of ingrediants just thrown togather. the taste was defiantly something i had not tasted before. but it was okay. we did have dessert and wow the limoncello' was awesome. when the bill came i was shocked at the price of the food. i felt like i had been sold on something that broke on the first day of use. horrible. way too much money for what i received and i will not be back nor recommend this to friends.

My family and I visit Sugos quite regularly and have never been disappointed. We especially like the Hunters Sausage and Egglant Parmesan. Highly recommended.

It was my first time there and it was great. The owner greeted us and took us to our table. It was my friends bday so he was made sure we were treated well like royality. Our waitress made sure we had everything from drinks, food, dessert and much more. Some of the associates knew it was our first time and came to our table to see how we liked it and made sure we were in great hands. We got free desset and a free drink for the bday girl as well a free toast for the 4 of us. It was a great experience and I know I will be going back. The food was great and so was the service =)

Pros: Parking is free if you go to the one at Perimeter

Cons: may get busy but its worth it

You walk into a romantically lit interior that is rustic Italian softened into elegance by the candlelight. You are ushered in with warm hospitality by the hostess.

Unfortunately, the unversed waitress strikes a discordant note, with her inability to make a food recommendation except in terms of the serving size. The wine list is a bit overpriced considering the rather generic nature of the Chiantis on display.

However, you put aside such trivialities and concentrate on the menu. The Tapas menu is scant and you finally decide on the waitress' tapas special for two recommendation. The tapas when brought out are all on one plate, and consist of the Hunters grilled specialty sausages, eggplant montassio, pasta pouches, and an incredible amount of pasta sauce.

The food is good but unremarkable. It serves as a painful reminder that $19 was just spent on something that does not quite fit the inventiveness of a "tapas" billing, and can be found in much greater quantities at an Olive Garden for less price.

Hunger triumphs over common sense, and you decide on one more item off the tapas menu: the baked stuffed calamari ("signature tapas"). The calamari decidedly makes up in volume for what it lacks in flavor.

There was nothing bad about the food here, it just does not live up to the glowing reviews or the restaurant's Mediterranean-Tapas-Spanish-Greek pretensions.

Our first visit to Sugo was a very good experience. Our waiter, Marcello, was as professional and pleasant as they come. He is worth asking for.

We were interested in the Tapas or small plates because we like to sample many flavors in small portions. They did not disappoint us.

I can highly recommend the baked stuffed calamari, eggplant montassio, hunters sausages, and Marcellos chicken (an entree served with pasta and roasted vegetables).

Only negative was we were hustled by a waitress-in-training. She asked if we would like some bread which ended up on our bill as a Tapas item for $5 (a cheap trick to pad a tab).

It was quickly forgotten, however, when the Mrs. C. offered us a glass of Moscato DAsti which was an excellent after dinner drink.

When I saw that Sugo won BOC I was very excited to see how it was, expecting above average. I left Sugo that night with my boyfriend and called all of my girlfriends that I had just eaten at the best Italian restaurant in my life. They, knowing how picky I am came out with me the next night (Saturday) with a group of 10. The Food was Exceptional, and the service was friendly and very knowledgeable. "Mr. C."(Owner) gave us the specials, I felt like I was being catered to by my own personal chef the way he was so energetic and confident in his food. I will become one of sugos regular customers!

We must have ordered the wrong food or maybe moving to Duluth has done something to the menu. We order chicken with capers and spaghetti with italian sausage. I have had much better, and my wife makes much better spaghetti sauce. There was plenty of it, but the taste was bland, what there was of it. I wouldn't be so negative, if we hadn't expected much better from reviews. Customer service was o.k., not extraordinary.

Took my father and some friends here for his birthday dinner. This was a great citysearch find as this restaurant was perfect for us on this evening. Our waiter was terrific especially in his pronounciation of the Italian dishes, being Italian & from the north I was very impressed. The food was amazing! I left this restaurant extremly impressed and will surely bring my group back here!

Thanks for everything!

Great food, wonderful atmosphere, and good value. Fresh, seasonal ingredients and all entress under $20. Wine list is a bit pricey, but also very good. This is the original location - the others are franchises - and if you're lucky, you'll get a visit from Mr. C himself!
