Nice little hole in the wall restaurant in a little tiny town of Sierra Madre. Italian. Lots of wine choices. The portions are huge. And a Tiramisu desert was by far the very very best part of the menu. The service is not very good. Expect that problem.

This restaurant is located right in the middle of the village, and it is quite charming despite the average food that is served. The steak is the most expensive item in the menu at 23 dollars, and it should be avoided because it was very hard. The bread pudding must be had because it's one of the best desserts that... More

We were in search of new places to eat in and around Pasadena and found a great deal with Groupon for this restaurant. Was excited to try it as reviews on Yelp were in general pretty good. We arrived just 10 minutes before our 7 pm reservation on 2/4/2017. The place was buzzing but we were promptly seated and given... More

I took my brother to this restaurant where he had been before. I had a load of discount coupons for Zugo's, but when I asked the server which I could use together, she replied "I'm new here, I don't know". When we asked about the specials, we got exactly the same reply. When we asked about various wines as well... More

First off, great deals on the wine. Three of us went for a quick lunch and spent the afternoon enjoying the wine. We had flat bread pizza & onion rings because we were there when Happy Hour started.

My wife and I live only about a mile from this place but didn't notice it until we were browsing the local promotional coupon book. The ambiance is very nice in this very small but quaint Italian restaurant. We came close to closing on a Thursday night and the wait staff was very relaxed, accommodating and pleasant. I suspect things... More

Went here with our Tuesday night group for dinner. Sat outside on a warm evening by the street. Our server was Avery (like the labels, that's how I remember). Everyone was very engaging and helpful. Avery spoke with us at length and was very nice. The manager came by and also spoke with us about local restaurants. He recommended some... More

August 31, 2016. This is my go to place in the lovely community of Sierra Madre for lunch. First the location is perfect just across the street from the SM playhouse. The view of the Blvd. from the patio and inside tables is charming. Passing by are the handsome canines of SM, mothers taking the babies out for a walk,... More

If I could do 0 I would. It was the worst restaurant experience I have ever had. We were there an hour before we received the wrong salad. After 75 minutes and threatening to leave we received 1 of 3 main dishes. We canceled the other 2. Other tables had similar poor service. The owner left, even though, when he... More

We are a refreshed cafe with the inspired look created by professional interior designers at Yolk Design. The food is primarily Italian but created by a French chef. Beautiful plating, great food, delicious wine, hand made desserts, curated craft beer are just a few of the amazing things that are available at the new Zugo's Cafe. Although the interior looks fancy and the plates are artistically crafted, we pride ourselves in providing a great dining experience at a humble price. Stop by and see what we mean.
