The most popular dish at Sugo's; is the Paella which is a twist on the authentic Spanish paella. (The twist being they use aborio rice and pesto).
Sugo’s restaurant located in Hobart’s tourist precinct, Salamanca Square, is the lovechild of Maria DiNoia - self taught chef, wife and mother of two and business partner, Rebecca White.
Sugo has been operating for almost 4 years, its philosophy is to provide the best Italian influenced food - not the normal spag bol and Aussie supreme pizza variety, but one influenced by traditional techniques alongside great coffee and friendly service.
The food at Sugo’s is a fusion of Italian and modern Australian fare, and Maria uses as much fresh produce from her fathers garden as possible.
