SquareMeal Review of Il Sugo

“A smashing little place for a quick, cheap and tasty meal”, this Camden Italian is also well-liked for its “faultless and charming service” – not to mention its flexible approach on the food front. Well-executed pizzas with standard toppings get the thumbs-up and there a plenty of familiar pasta dishes too – try spaghetti with meatballs, seafood linguine, creamy salmon ravioli or four-cheese gnocchi. Il Sugo also does a good line in tapas-style stuzzichini snacks for sharing – think bresaola with rocket and truffle oil, Mozzarella-filled arancini, buttered dough balls with prosciutto or chunky polenta chips with Gorgonzola dip – “replenished by our waitress without asking”, noted one happy fan. It’s also worth checking out the great-value sharing deals (including a bottle of wine). Takeaways and home deliveries too.

I liked this place much more than I expected to. I booked it because I needed somewhere to have a quick meal before going to a concert and chose it for its convenience rather than because I knew anything about it. At first sight, the menu looked like a bog standard small Italian but a closer look revealed some things I hadn't come across before, particularly amongst the starters. Don't miss the polenta chips with gorgonzola sauce – eight chunky chips of deep-fried breadcrumb coated polenta with a very small bowl of rich sauce. Very small, but replenished by our lovely waitress without us even asking. Fried courgettes and rice balls also featured. Main courses were pizzas which were pretty standard but very well executed. The service was faultless and charming. Our very attentive waitress anticipated our requirements but without being fussy or intrusive. Overall a smashing little place to go for a quick, cheap and tasty meal.
