Altrincham's pasta restaurant now has a sibling in Ancoats.
Harden's survey result
“Extremely authentic pasta from Puglia” (“you smell how fantastic it is going to be”) has been successfully duplicated from the Altrincham original at this larger Ancoats spin-off, where “the wine is great value, served in painted jugs”. “The minus has got to be the huge warehouse-y, new-build space, which is of a type that’s abundant in Manchester, but cold and samey”.
Sugo Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Not bad but nothing special. Pasta a touch past al dente, too much sauce and the sauce was a touch over cooked meaning the meat was dry and stringy. Maybe I got them on a bad night."
"Sugo occupies an unprepossessing corner plot of one of the many new apartment blocks which make Ancoats what it is but wow have they managed to turn it into a very tasty corner of Puglia indeed. Relaxed and utilitarian wooden furniture and a general no fuss style (including straightforward, but accomplished service) ensures the focus is well and truly on the food of which, words like punchy, intense, heartwarming, laugh out loud delight spring easily to mind. It’s a place for friends and family rather than dates. Service i find to be really good at anticipating our needs (on one occasion discretely moving us away from a noisy young family having already guessed our mounting distress!) and always fun. "
